Business as usual in Portland

Political rallies in Portland, Oregon, and a neighboring town gave way to violence Sunday afternoon when black-clad antifa activists attacked police officers and far-right demonstrators, while other protesters from rival groups scuffled in the streets.
Two officers were treated for minor injuries after protesters fired slingshots and threw rocks, bottles and other projectiles at them, according to the Portland Police Bureau. At least nine people were arrested throughout the day on charges that included interfering with a police officer and disorderly conduct.
An especially alarming moment came toward the end of the day when a man driving a black Chevrolet truck adorned with American flags and a Confederate flag decal accelerated at a group of protesters, causing people to scream and jump out of the way. No one was hurt, and the driver, who was not identified, was detained and released without charges shortly after, Willamette Week reported.

    If the cops and the Gov’t had any spine, this is how’d it’d be handled… only takes a handful of cops:

    Somehow it’s always “far-right.”
    I’m guessing that must really mean a smidgen left of center.

    I’m surprised Sammy hasn’t gotten off the porch and gone to a rally. He could hide out as an Antifa member and pull some sort of false flag operation and then run away. Kind of like suing someone and then running out the back of the courthouse……

      Heh – and having the bailiff hold us for 10 minutes…..

      I’m still wondering why he hasn’t deployed the short bus. There’s all kinds of shit happening within a few hours drive.

    You know what is funny. Now that it’s come out the FBI and DHS are thinking of classifying the antifa as a domestic terrorist group, Portland has decided to NOT label any group as a “gang”…because it’s racist or something.

    There is a reason I don’t go to Portland.

    While the description fit, it wasn’t me in the pickumup truck. I was camping, I swear.

    Now, be careful giving Sammy ideas, he’ll be trying to sell blue baseball bats next!

    This is getting absurd, silly string, really??????
