The Portland rioters met in Laurelhurst Park to stage up to wreak havoc against the Penumbra Kelly Building, a police building which includes both the Portland Police Bureau and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.

We reported on that action here.

But a small group of them also formed up there after their action against the police.

It was there they encountered someone/s they alleged were throwing “pipe bombs” at them and which they called a “terrorist bombing”

You can see the video of the “bomb” linked here.

They claimed three were thrown at them, with one being a dud which they examined here.

Now, I’m not a explosives expert, but if we accept that this story is not just performance art and another drama from these characters like everything else they do, and that is a big if, it would seem it was designed not to really hurt anything. It seems little more than a firecracker. Perhaps someone’s idea of giving them a little of their own medicine.

They claimed they had a video of one of the guys who threw one of them. But I’m not going to post that given their unreliability.

But the fact that they called it a “terrorist bombing” and “pipe bombs,” and they’re all freaked about it, shows what incredible hypocrites they really are, given that Portland Antifa have injured dozens of cops. Strange how it’s not a “terrorist bombing” when they do it. They’ve thrown far more powerful things at the federal agents and Portland Police and have actually injured people, yet have seen no problem with doing that.

Here are just a couple of examples.

First, let’s check out this explosive allegedly from Gabriel Agard-Berryhill, 18, aka “Grandma’s Vest Boy,” who we wrote about here.

Then there was this incident where a federal agent was allegedly injured by Isaiah Jason Maza, Jr., 18, with an explosive.

So I have a question. Are they going to report this to the police they want to defund? Do they think this could be handled by a social worker? If they abolished prisons, what would they want done with this guy if in fact he attacked them? Does it occur to any of them what they have done to others?
