Portland: Police powerless to stop recent rioting in the city

The woke city council of Portland, Ore has basically hamstrung its police force by prohibiting it from using tools such as rubber bullets and pepper spray to quell riots, unless it gets really, really serious.

Meet Portland’s new ‘woke’ police force

It’s Portland, which may explain everything. But recently, there was a demonstration of how ‘woke’ the Portland police have become. The Blaze reports that police were called because someone was pounding on the backdoor of restaurant. The indoor dining was closed, but the employees were working the drive through. The police showed up with what is described as an Enhanced Crisis Intervention Team (ECIT) officer who was apparently running the show. The ECIT officer tried to softly talk the man out of breaking into the restaurant. Sadly, the man refused to listen to the ECIT’s psychologically formulated arguments, so the police ‘slowly’ backed away giving the man ‘space’ to continue breaking through the back door. By this point, he was using a grapefruit-sized rock and the employees inside the restaurant were hiding in the restaurant’s freezer. With the police and ECIT officer watching from afar, the man finally broke through the door. With people inside now in danger, the police decided they should probably do something, but the man barricaded himself inside the employee’s break …

‘A scared world, needs a fearless church’: Worship leader Sean Feucht confronts Antifa in Portland

Worship leader Sean Feucht reports that the day after members of Antifa, a left-wing extremist group, terrorized several Christians who had gathered for a time of prayer and worship at Portland’s harbour front on Saturday, Aug 7, 2021, over 5,000 Christians showed up the very next day to show that they would not allow themselves to be intimidated. When a group of Christians gathered the day earlier, several Antifa members showed up dressed in black and some with shields and weapons. They maced members of the Christian group and terrorized others, destroyed their sound equipment, forcing some families with young children to flee the event. Members of Antifa could be heard mocking, “where is your God now.” In what could only be described as a God coincidence, Sean, who has been holding worship services across America over the last several months, had four months earlier scheduled a service for Portland, the day after Antifa had disrupted the Saturday service. Declaring he would not be intimidated, Feucht went ahead with the service at the very location …

Post Millennial is reporting that several people associated with the left-wing extremist organization, Antifa, attacked a group of Christians who had gathered to worship and pray at Portland’s waterfront on Saturday, Aug 7, 2021. Videos show Antifa militants, some carrying weapons and shields, dressed in black, pepper spraying and throwing objects at the Evangelical Christians who had gathered near the Battleship Oregon Memorial.

As soon as the event was announced, that featured Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski, who was arrested for holding services during the COVID pandemic, Antifa members began responding on Twitter, threatening the event.

20 vs 1: Portland mayor pushes to refund police

People are shaking their heads and wondering how these elected politicians actually believed things were going to improve when they cut police funding. Portland’s politicians were caught up in the fad of the day to defund police which they did by cutting $16 million from the police budget. And now Portland’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler is wanting to add $2 million to the police budget.

Portland: Antifa peacefully celebrates Biden’s inauguration

A few hours after Joe Biden was inaugurated as President of the United States, Antifa and other left wing anarchists took to the streets of Portland celebrating the change of government. Sure they may have gotten a bit carried away and set fire to a few businesses. Sure they may have accidentally smashed some windows at the Democrat headquarters in the city, but it was part of the joyous and of course peaceful celebration. Thankfully, they were all wearing masks.

Antifa launches Thanksgiving Day attack in Portland

On Thanksgiving Day, Antifa, a left-wing anarchist group, attacked a veteran’s war memorial in Portland, toppling the statue on top and as well vandalizing several businesses in down town Portland.

Even though one of its founder is a self-proclaimed “trained Marxist.” Breitbart explains what happened on Thanksgiving day: An Antifa group in Portland, Oregon, called for a Thanksgiving Eve attack on “symbols and structures of colonialism and capitalism.” The incited direct action led to the destruction and vandalism of a veterans’ war memorial and downtown businesses.

Oh, the irony: They claim ‘Capitalism is scary’

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.

Portland: Peaceful rioters set fire to apartment building

Last night, left-wing extremists in Portland set fire inside an occupied condominium building. They also looted nearby stores brought out the furniture and set fire to it in the middle of the street. This happened as the Portland police decided stay hidden hoping the riot would de-escalate. Of course, it didn’t and police were forced to step in after they set a fire in the lobby of the condominium building.

PORTLAND: Cowards run in packs

Apparently, the rioting is continuing in Portland. I am not sure how many days this is now, but it must be well over two months. Meanwhile, the Democrat mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, who actually participated in one riot, keeps his head deeply buried in the sand. And apparently, the rioters have now turned their attention on a police precinct located in the suburbs of Portland. And the people of Portland are trying to stand up for their city. This includes two elderly women, who the rioters turned on. There is an old saying “cowards run in packs.” How many brave left-wing extremists does it take to assault and harass elderly women? One of the elderly women was apparently using a walker. The Daily Wire explains: Rioters again returned to the Portland Police Department’s East Precinct Thursday night, which is in a residential area, where they doused an elderly woman with paint and harassed another who was using a walker.

Violence, chaos, fires, death as city mayors fiddle

Ancient writers claimed that Nero played his fiddle as Rome burned to the ground in 64 AD. Despite these stories, many modern historians state it never happened. But if you want evidence that it did, you only have to watch America’s city mayors in action. Not only are some mayors standing back and allowing the rioting to take place by hamstringing their police, others have actually voiced their support and one mayor even participated in a riot.
