I’ve been bringing you a series of videos on the bad moves by rioters and other folks in and around the protests.

There was the woman who challenged the cop in New York City to tell her what he was going to do if she didn’t move, then she found out. The self-proclaimed “nice young woman from Wisconsin” who wasn’t so nice. The guy who allegedly doxxed federal agents who ended up doxxing himself and giving the best defense for the federal response. The “mom” who claims can’t say “black lives matter” on her street so she has to come out every might and yell it at federal officers.

My colleague Sister Toldjah also covered a great story about a rioter getting unintentionally finked out by his grandmother.

But we have to admit this next guy stands out. Literally.

Now, it should be noted that there’s a reason that Antifa wears “black bloc.” The idea is that if everyone wears that style of dress that it’s much harder for the authorities to pick you out, you are a ‘black bloc’ of unidentifiable folks.

But someone didn’t get the memo when he climbed over the fence of the Portland federal courthouse. You can see him setting an incendiary device when he gets behind the fence and then throwing it at the building. But as he throws it, it doesn’t end well for him.

Ouch. Looks like he got nailed with pepper balls and might even have been hit with an errant bottle from one of his buddies.

So here’s a thought.

Maybe when you’re throwing an incendiary device at the courthouse, it’s probably not a good idea to wear an incredibly identifiable outfit that even reflects light, so you are really easy to pick out of a crowd. Rocket scientist, obviously.

Guess what happened next? Not only did they get him with the pepper balls, but according to the livestream looks like they got him too. He reportedly tried to shinny up a light pole to get away but got stuck. That obviously didn’t go well.

Here’s the video.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes, how many is that now? And hey, he’s dressed for it, he’s already in an orange jumpsuit.

I keep saying “worst move ever,” but they just keep trying to one-up each other.
