I don’t think the irony was intentional, but last night, Halloween, Antifa and its ilk decided to hold a “Capitalism is scary” protest in Portland, that quickly escalated into a peaceful riot.

The New York Post explains what happened:

Police declared a march against capitalism and police violence a riot in Portland, Oregon, after demonstrators smashed the windows of businesses and threw projectiles at cops.

The damage was caused during the “Capitalism is Scary” march that began around 7:15 p.m. Saturday from Irving Park, Oregon Live reported.

But as the group marched south to Portland’s convention center, some of the protesters smashed the windows of buildings, including a bank, a real estate agency, two phone company stores, a hotel and a Starbucks, the outlet reported.

Not content with attacking businesses on Halloween, Portland’s peaceful rioters headed to the suburbs.

Breitbart explains:

Rioters quickly moved from a business district in northeast Portland onto residential streets after police declared a riot condition. Anti-capitalist, anti-police rioters marched through a neighborhood overturning trashcans and shouting at residents.

Rioters took to the streets of a northeast Portland business district and began vandalizing the windows of companies, Breitbart News reported Saturday night. Portland Police Bureau officials quickly declared the demonstration dubbed “Capitalism is Scary” to be a riot and ordered their immediate dispersal.

Yeah, going to the suburbs will convince people that capitalism is scary.

Of course, it is not just Antifa who oppose capitalism, so do Black Lives Matter:
