Peaceful Protesters Set Police Building On Fire In Portland, But The Mayor Claims Everything Is Under Control...
Protesters and police really seem to be at odds on the west coast. They have had the CHOP, protesters camping outside of city hall, vandalism, arson, you name it. So it's obvious that lib leaders don't have any control of their cities. Just this past Saturday the protesters went wild again and their peaceful protest was considered a riot after they started fires in the Portland Police Association. The fire was put out and a few were arrested but this is the level of control libs have. It turns out Trump had sent federal officers in to help protect federal buildings, but instead of thanking him these delusional libs are claiming they don't need help.
"Protesters broke into a building, set it on fire and started dumpster fires late Saturday night in Oregon's largest city, police said, as demonstrations that have been taking place since the death of George Floyd intensified for another night in Portland.
The fire at the Portland Police Association building was put out a short time later, Portland police said on Twitter. The department declared the gathering a riot, and began working to clear the downtown area.
Tear gas was deployed, according to pictures and video from the scene. Fencing that had been placed around federal courthouse had also been removed by protesters and made into barricades, police tweeted."
Libs are of course upset and have been telling Federal Officers to defend their buildings and nothing else.
"Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and Wheeler demanded the federal officers be withdrawn, and a US senator joined them in condemning the arrests.
"Authoritarian governments, not democratic republics, send unmarked authorities after protesters," tweeted US Sen. Jeff Merkley, a Democrat representing Oregon."
Trump tweeted about the aid he sent to Portland.
"We are trying to help Portland, not hurt it. Their leadership has, for months, lost control of the anarchists and agitators. They are missing in action. We must protect Federal property, AND OUR PEOPLE. These were not merely protesters, these are the real deal!"
"US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) admitted to being one of the agencies involved in arresting protesters.
CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan also explained that the officers are not unmarked as the MSM wants you to believe.
"Our personnel are clearly marked as federal LEOs & have unique identifiers. You will not see names on their uniforms b/c these same violent criminals use this information to target them & their families, putting both at risk. As Acting Commissioner, I will not let that happen!"
So there is chaos on the streets and crime is running rampant throughout Portland. But for some reason, liberal leaders are angry that they are receiving aid... Seems like they want this chaos and destruction. If they didn't they would be thanking Trump for the help. Oregon voters should think about this next time local leaders are up for election, their leaders have the opportunity to use federal officers to help end the crime and chaos but instead, they are telling them to get out.
