Another day, and more Democrat politicians lined up to hurl invective at the Federal law enforcement officers doing a job the mayor of Portland refuses to do: keep the streets of his city safe and protect federal property.

I wonder if Menendez can still entice those pre-pubescent Dominican hookers while wearing a facemask?

To hear the Democrats tell it, the protesters are assembling peacefully and protesting something…no one is quite sure what it is but is seems to be that they are opposed to the US Constitution and want to destroy the nation.

But the image these terrorist sympathizers in the US Congress tries to portray is at odds with the facts on the ground and their actions directly support the insurrectionists in the streets. The reason that the Democrats are making such a big deal out of the federal agents not wearing name tapes is because their real agenda is to assist Antifa in doxing the officers so that their families can be threatened.

And far from being peaceful, there have been numerous injuries of federal agents by the Antifa

Dozens of assaults of federal officers have taken place and at least three federal officers are hospitalized with eye injuries due to the lasers used by the street thugs they are opposing.

As they lose ground, Antifa is becoming more violent and aggressive. In these two videos taken of the same incident but at different angles, a federal agent is trying to arrest a hoodlum. He is swarmed and beaten by the peaceful protesters.

 

I really have to admire the restraint of both agents in not lighting up that mob.

The lessons here are clear. We are facing a slow-burning insurrection in the streets of several of America’s Democrat-controlled cities. The governments of those cities are in league with the protesters. The protesters are anything but peaceful. The federal agents are showing remarkable restraint which further puts the lie to the New York Times article claiming that they have no crowd control experience (see New York Times Article Pushes the Huge Lie That Federal Law Enforcement in Portland Has No Crowd Control Training). But it is just a matter of time until the hyper-aggressive and not very well thought out attacks by Antifa on law enforcement has the inevitable consequences of some of them stacked up in the street. That may be just what it takes to put an end to this nonsense.
