Some call it just a coincidence, but last month the owner of Reo’s Ribs in Portland, Oregon criticized Antifa for the vandalism in his area of the city. A few nights later, security cameras caught someone allegedly setting fire to his restaurant.
Portland Fire and Rescue officials are looking to question a person seen in surveillance footage apparently setting fire to a local restaurant. The suspected arsonist acted after the restaurant owner criticized vandalism in the area committed by Antifa.
On November 23, a suspected arsonist set fire to Reo’s Ribs located in Portland’s Hollywood District, Breitbart News reported. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they observed smoke pouring out of the rear of the building and flames both on the interior and exterior.
Surveillance video shows a person setting that fire, KOIN CBS6 tweeted.
Of course, this is the same city where its Democrat mayor, Ted Wheeler, was tear-gassed after he joined rioters as they tried to set fire to a federal court building. READ: WATCH: Portland Mayor Joins Violent ‘Protest’; Booed by Protesters, Tear Gassed by Feds
And, because Portland politicians hamstrung police preventing them from clamping down on the rioting, it should come as no surprise that businesses are not only fleeing downtown Portland, but they are also leaving the city.
