behold the Jerry Nadler myth [who says no riots in Portland]

An Associated Press (AP) reporter watched several U.S. Marshal agents sustain wounds as thousands sparred with police during the journalist’s stay at a federal courthouse in Portland  over the 7/25/2000 weekend.

An estimated 4,000 people converged on Portland’s Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse, and demonstrators made their presence known by hurling concrete and launching fireworks from behind the massive fence that stood between them and federal agents, according to an AP report.

On Sunday the fence surrounding the courthouse was breached by protesters.

AP reporter Mike Balsamo was inside the building during the siege and watched a total of six agents sustain injuries, including one who was bloodied after taking a direct hit from a firework, he reported.  Not reporting what’s actually going on in Portland has gone on for some time.

So much for the BLM farce [Portland protester Lilith Sinclair]

What’s really going on:  On Friday, before the fiftieth night of violent antifa riots, a protester who identified herself as an “Afro-Indigenous non-binary local organizer” declared that she is advocating for the abolition of “the United States as we know it.” This brief declaration arguably encapsulates the destructive spirit of antifa and the impetus behind the violent riots that have ravaged the streets of Portland.

“My name is Lilith Sinclair, I’m an Afro-Indigenous non-binary local organizer here in Portland, organizing for the abolition of not just the militarized police state but also the United States as we know it,” Sinclair declares in a brief video that went viral on Twitter. She also called Portland “stolen land,” proceeding to give Native Americans a “land acknowledgment.” By the way, she also identifies herself as a “sex worker,” i.e. a prostitute.

Firenze Sage:   This is the real agenda. Destroy the country.

ANTIFA is no Lone Ranger with black mask who helps people. Unmask those bad ANTIFA persons!

Remember the Lone Ranger who wore a black mask and helped people?   A man who, with his sidekick Tonto, sought freedom and justice for all?

ANTIFA,  no lone ranger, hides their identity behind black hoods. ANTIFA is   a bunch of violent persons who beat up journalist Andy Ngo in Portland. No arrests were made.Ngo suffers permanent injuries.  Many thousand in Germany lend support to ANTIFA.

Take off those masks from ANTIFA.  Bring justice to Portland and journalist  Mr. Ngo.  Stop this lawlessness in Portland before it spreads.

How control ANTIFA?   Make the wearing of masks and hoods at demonstrations illegal.  Let people assemble and express their views freely   — without masks.

Firenze Sage: Cops feared Antifa,not Nazis in Charlottesville riots

 

ANTIFA fears:  A new bombshell independent report.  The report  highlights the failures of the Charlottesville Police Department during the white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally in August 2017.  The report  claims that law enforcement on the scene feared direct attacks from far-left extremists  — from ANTIFA —  and that this may have even led to their refusal to intervene in the chaotic riot.

The report was drafted by a former U.S. attorney hired by the city of Charlottesville, Va., Timothy Heapy, through his law firm.

According to the report, the authors “spoke to multiple officers at all levels who expressed concern that normal arrest procedures would put officers in harm’s way.

In the week before August 12, the Virginia Fusion Center shared credible threats that members of Antifa would bring soda cans filled with cement and might attack police. Then, on the morning of August 12, rumors circulated among CPD that Antifa might attack officers with fentanyl.

The apparent threat of violence against police from Antifa reportedly led officers to avoid direct confrontation in the ensuing melee.

 As the report notes, a variety of orders were given by a multitude of different law enforcement officers to avoid breaking up fights between the Unite the Right rally attendees and counter-protesters.

For example, “Lieutenant Brian O’Donnell, commander of Zone 3 (1stStreet) instructed his officers to avoid engaging attendees over ‘every little thing.’”

Furthermore, “Sergeant Robert Haney described the instructions he received as ‘do not interrupt mutual combat’ unless someone is seriously injured,” the report alleges.

The report noted Lieutenant McKean “told [the authors of the report] that he was ‘not sending guys out there and getting them hurt.’

The report concludes that the police strategy was therefore to “rather than engage the crowd and prevent fights, the CPD plan was to declare the event  unlawful and disperse the crowd.

The Antifa movement is a conglomeration of autonomous, self-styled anti-fascist groups in the United States.[2][3][4] The principal feature of antifa groups is their opposition to fascism through the use of direct action.[5] They engage in militant protest tactics, which has included property damage and physical violence.[2][6][7][8] They tend to be anti-government and anti-capitalist[9] and they are predominantly far-left and militant left,[10][5] which includes anarchistscommunists and socialists.[11][12][13][14] Their stated focus is on fighting far-right and white supremacist ideologies directly, rather than on encouraging pro-left policy.[5]

Firenze Sage comments:    Don’t expect anyone to apologize for calling Trump nuts for saying it was mutual combat.
