Portland
Anti-fascist counter-demonstrators cross the Burnside Bridge across the Willamette River from the west side of the city to the east side in search of the far-right group, the Proud Boys, in Portland, Ore., Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019. Self-described anti-fascists vowed to confront the rally while leaders from the far right urged their followers to turn out in large numbers to protest the arrests of multiple members of right-wing groups in the run-up to the event.

Thousands of Antifa poured into the area to riot in and around the Justice Center and the Federal Courthouse in Portland, Oregon on Saturday night.

According to Fox, this has been the 38th consecutive day of unrest in the city and the Mayor and the police clearly still don’t have a handle on it.

But tear gas helps and Antifa hates it.

Mark Morgan, head of the CP, went on Fox and described how the rioter/criminals were attacking law enforcement. The CBP appears to have been called in to help the federal forces.

From Fox News:

“These are not protesters, these are criminals who got together and organized and planned and actually brought weapons, they brought shields, they brought frozen water bottles, rocks, lasers, weapons with the intent to destroy a federal building and harm law enforcement officers,” Morgan said on Sunday.

He added, “I don’t care what your idealogic beliefs are, your political affiliation, violence, we should all be united, is wrong.”

He went on to say that he’s glad that President Trump “understands the importance of law and order and that it’s a cornerstone of American society.”

Morgan said one of the rioters tried to assault a CBP employee while he was being arrested but that they found “a pipe bomb, a fused incendiary device, and machete was actually discovered during that search” of that suspect.

“It’s serious. This is about law and order. We must be united,” he continued. “Where are the local political leaders, standing up, saying this is unconscionable, this is wrong, and these individuals should cease and desist and be arrested? Where are they?”

It’s Portland. Progressive Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler. What did he do to stop anything? He tweeted at people to remain calm and questioned police response at the beginning of the weekend.

I’m sure that will be effective.
