Welcome to Portland

There was a Riot In Portland Following the Rittenhouse Verdict – PJ Media

Once again I will lament what has happened to Portland over the last couple of decades. This is a shining example of why Democrat “leadership” is something to avoid at all costs.

Except in Portland. There, the professional radical agitators didn’t really need much of an excuse. It was the weekend, so any radicals who actually had a day job were free to throw a few Molotov cocktails and toss some rocks through windows to “protest”… what?

Well, there’s “white supremacy,” because Kyle Rittenhouse killed two white allies of the anti-police movement—36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum of Kenosha and 26-year-old Anthony Huber of Silver Lake, Wisconsin—and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, a protester from West Allis. But that’s not quite the same thing as if Rittenhouse had shot a black protester or two, screaming “Zieg Heil” when they fell.

But they just know that’s what he was thinking.

Fox 12 of Portland, a news outlet that has become one of the most experienced at covering riots in the entire world, reports that police in Portland declared a riot after a protest against the Rittenhouse verdict became “violent and destructive” near the Multnomah County Justice Center.

Fox News:

Rioters were throwing objects at officers, smashing windows and damaging the justice center’s front gate, FOX 12 of Oregon reported.

“Due to violent, destructive behavior by a significant part of the crowd, the gathering in downtown Portland is a RIOT. All participants are instructed to proceed away to the WEST,” the Portland Police Bureau wrote on Twitter.

Riot about something that didn’t affect you that happened 2,000 miles away.
