Leftists have gotten past smashing Confederate generals to smashing the president who defeated them.
Still waiting for Joe Biden to condemn this, or for the media to ask him about it.
A group of protesters toppled statues of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln in Portland’s South Park Block late Sunday before moving into other areas of downtown, smashing windows and engaging in other acts of destruction.
Of course this was accompanied by general terrorism and political intimidation aimed at eyewitnesses and local residents.
The organizers had signaled their aggressive stance for the night, calling for “direct action” and demanding that the video live-streamers and photographers who had become staples of such events stay away. People in the crowd were repeatedly admonished not to film. Passersby who happened upon the group where ordered by people in the crowd to stop filming or delete photographs, including an apartment resident who had lasers shined at his eyes and a liquid thrown in his face as he appeared to film the scene from his terrace.
And after some domestic terrorism, going unpunished as usual, it was time to smash the windows of the historical society.
After toppling the statues, people in the crowd began smashing windows at the Oregon Historical Society, unfurling a banner that read, “Stop honoring racist colonizer murderers.” A mural on the attached Sovereign Hotel building depicting the Lewis & Clark expedition was splattered with red paint.
Good thing that there’s no actual enforcement of anything, except when it comes to…
1. People holding weddings
2. Praying in churches or synagogues
