I previously reported on the Portland “moms” leader, Demetria Hester, how she didn’t quite fit the picture of what media was trying to sell us about the moms group in Portland that was supposedly standing like a “wall” to defend the poor peaceful protesters from the “evil” federal agents.

But then the “Wall of Moms” group basically imploded about two and a half weeks ago because some claimed they weren’t concerned enough about ‘centering’ black lives in the effort. So then they sort of reformed into “Mothers United for Black Lives” with one of the leaders being Demetria Hester.

Here she is before they set the Portland Police Association Building on fire and the day before they blockaded the cops in the East Precinct and tried to burn that up, too. She’s chanting, encouraging them, “Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground.”

Warning in all the videos for offensive language.

Then here she is, chanting about how they are going to “f**k sh*t up,” as indeed they did the next night when they attacked the East Precinct.

She was finally arrested on Sunday night for disorderly conduct and interfering with a peace officer.

But then she was released and all the charges were dropped. So why even bother arresting her if you’re just going to drop the charges?

After she was released, she made a statement that looked like unwell performance art.

The reporter for Oregon Public broadcasting noted her concerns about posting it until she no longer had charges pending. So basically the reporter is admitting she sat on it, thinking it might hurt Hester’s case. What the heck? And other local reporters have failed to identify Hester by name and as the Moms leader in the inciting videos I posted above. Why?

So she was right back out on the street during last night’s action, taunting police again, as we reported earlier. Warning for more offensive imagery.

Involved as police are trying to make an arrest here.

Then screaming at the cops again and trying to keep the neighborhood awake.

It’s safe to say that these people are seriously unhinged.

So how does Portland expect to stop this if people are just released?
