Riots exploded over the weekend in a variety of cities with radical leftists claiming they were acting in “solidarity” with the anarchists in Portland.

Rioters not only targeted Portland and Seattle, but other cities, attacking police and courthouses.

Remember when the chant was just about defunding the police last month? Give them what they want, give them an inch and they want a mile. Now they’ve moved on to the real goal: abolition of all cops and prisons, as we reported earlier. That’s part of why they’re going after courthouses, the symbols of American rule of law and the justice system, which they seek to upend and tear down. The rule of law is the bedrock of America.

This was Los Angeles where they hit the federal courthouse and the federal detention center:

Police tried to clear one woman from the street and they are then attacked by multiple people who try to de-arrest each other. LAPD drops them all.

In Aurora, Colorado, they destroyed the courthouse, also setting it on fire in significant damage to the building.

In Oakland, California, they went after the police and the Alameda County Courthouse, spray painting it will “kill judges,” other anti-cop slogans and starting a fire inside the building.

They just keep trying to jack up the violence more and more and more than a little troubling that there are so many people involved in such actions.

Federal authorities really need to grab the leaders in all these actions and they need to look at the funding behind this for people to have masks, fireworks and the ability of some to travel from city to city.
