Seattle and Portland have major issues on their hands. For whatever reason, the two liberal cities simply cannot get a handle on the rioting that goes on in their downtown areas on a regular basis, and Wednesday night both cities got hit again.
Police declared an unlawful assembly in Portland after about 150 Antifa rioters damaged the federal immigration facility (ICE building). “We have observed property damage to the building,” the Portland Police Bureau wrote on Twitter. “Anyone who is involved in criminal behavior including: vandalism and graffitting is subject to arrest or citation.”
According to the police, the rioters were carrying pepper ball guns, stun guns, fireworks, rocks and shields.
Seattle had property damage in their downtown areas as the Antifa rioters were protesting against President Biden and law enforcement in general.
In Denver protesters that reportedly were with BLM burned an America flag and chanted anti-Trump and anti-Biden slogans.
The out of control mob in Portland was caught on tape holding banners that had messages like: “We are ungovernable” and “We don’t want Biden – We want revenge!” for “Police Murders,” “Imperialist Wars” and “Fascist Massacres.”
According to a television report in Portland, the protest was billed as a demonstration against the Biden inauguration and law enforcement. At one point in the riot, demonstrators were approached by Portland Police officers on bicycles looking to restore some order to the proceedings, when some of the far left activists in the group attempted to take an officer’s bike from him, and others threw objects at the police as they retreated.
