Portland protests have no goal except violence and anarchy

At the end of May, rioting and looting broke out in Portland, Ore., as it did in dozens of other American cities in response to the police-involved death of George Floyd. In one night, hundreds of rioters ravaged downtown, breaking into jewelry stores, the mall and banks. They left a trail of broken windows and fires in their wake. That was seven weeks ago. And while violent protests have ebbed or stopped everywhere else, it has continued and grown stronger in Portland.

For 58 days, mass protests and riots have taken over parts of the city. Some streets and areas are literal “no-go zones” at night — either blocked by fires or teams of “guards.”

Day after day, hundreds and even thousands take to the streets and claim the territory as theirs. They cycle through a number of chants like “All cops are bastards” and “F- -k the police.” A large number of them participate in violent criminal acts such as arson and assault. They’ve made it a game to lure law-enforcement officers out of buildings so they can assault them with blinding lasers, paint, rocks and other weapons.

Last month, Wheeler disbanded the Gun Violence Reduction Unit, claiming it unfairly targeted blacks. In the weeks since, there has been a 380 percent increase in shootings compared with the same time frame last year.

City Councilwoman Jo Ann Hardesty has taken police hatred further. She told Marie Claire magazine this week: “I believe Portland Police [Bureau] is lying about the damage — or starting the fires themselves — so that they have justification for attacking community members.” She partially walked back her accusation after Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell, who is black, asked for evidence of her claim.

Long Prison Terms Needed

It is hard to see how the city of Portland can ever recover from the violence that has been unleashed by Antifa, with the connivance of local officials. One is tempted to say that Portland’s voters have brought it on themselves and are getting what they deserve–good and hard, as Mencken put it. Unfortunately, they aren’t the principal victims of the violence.

Federal agents came under vicious attack while trying to protect the federal courthouse in Portland from something like 1,000 rioters. Among other things, criminals pointed lasers into the eyes of the agents. It appears that three agents may have suffered permanent blindness:

Antifa rioters are the Democratic Party’s shock troops, playing a role analogous to that of the Ku Klux Klan in the late 19th Century. And, like Klan members in the Deep South, Antifa criminals in Democrat-controlled cities are rarely punished.

Portland’s mayor and police chief spent much of Thursday and Friday decrying nightly demonstrations that have turned destructive, a surge in shootings and homicides and other public safety concerns that have gripped the city in recent weeks.

In a rare occurrence, cops on the front lines have been permitted to speak out about them, too.

Several rank-and-file officers this week provided firsthand accounts of their work amid heated protests, increasing gun violence, calls for reforms and budget cuts.

Sgt. Brent Maxey said the vitriol and acts of violence directed at him during a pair of demonstrations marked some of the lowest points in his 18 years with the bureau.
