With the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse under nightly siege from violent radicals, and Portland’s police hard-pressed to protect it, President Trump sent in federal agents to secure the building.
The reaction from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:
“The use of stormtroopers under the guise of law and order is a tactic that is not appropriate to our country in any way.”
Majority Whip James Clyburn endorsed the speaker’s equating of the U.S. law enforcement officers to Ernst Rohm’s SA thugs being deployed to do the dirty work of Adolph Hitler.
“Nobody asked the federal government to come into Portland. Nobody asked them to come to Seattle,” ranted Clyburn. “This is something that’s made up of whole cloth by this administration as an excuse for sending in stormtroopers to incite the people.”
Clyburn had earlier compared the U.S. officers sent to Portland to Heinrich Himmler’s Nazi secret police: “This president and this attorney general seem to be doing everything they possibly can to impose Gestapo activities on local communities, and this is what I’ve been warning about for a long time.”
His Gestapo comparison recalls Sen. Abe Ribicoff’s denunciation of the Chicago police of Mayor Richard J. Daley during the 1968 Democratic National Convention, after police clashed with radicals in Grant Park: “With George McGovern, we wouldn’t have Gestapo tactics in the streets of Chicago!”
What do the men and women of the FBI, DEA, ICE, DHS, CBP and the U.S. Marshals Service think of congressional leaders who equate them with Nazi stormtroopers and the Gestapo?
Outraged that Trump sent in federal agents to protect a building they had under siege for weeks, the Portland mob came out in even greater numbers and rioted through the weekend. Saturday night, there were solidarity riots with Portland in Seattle, Oakland, Austin, Richmond, and other cities.
Consider the depth of hatred of Trump that would cause leaders of the Democratic Party to compare U.S. law enforcement to Nazis.
Still, to date, no apologies have been heard.
Yet, as police are again being cursed and showered with debris, it is hard to see how this country reunites, and around what, no matter which party prevails in November.
In addition to the reigniting of protests and riots in urban centers there has come, in tandem with demands to “defund the police,” a surge in violent crime. Last week, Trump offered some staggering statistics:
“In New York City, over 300 people were shot in the last month alone, a 277 … percent increase over the same period of a year ago. Murders this year have spiked 27 percent in Philadelphia and 94 percent in Minneapolis compared to the same period in 2019.
“Perhaps no citizens have suffered more from the menace of violent crime than the wonderful people of Chicago … At least 414 people have been murdered in the city this year, a roughly 50 percent increase over last year. More than 1,900 people have been shot. These are numbers that aren’t even to be believed.”
As Black Lives Matter protests revive, ostensibly for greater justice for black folks, a vastly disproportionate number of victims of these urban shootings and killings are black, as are a disproportionate number of the criminals doing the shooting and killing.
The New York Times suggests that a new “Silent Majority” of 2020, unlike Richard Nixon’s Silent Majority of 1969, backs the protesters and their causes.
A dissent: While the country was disgusted and outraged at George Floyd’s death from that cop kneeling on his neck, and supported the protests and the calls for police reform, two months of leftist rampages have taken their toll.
When the protests turned into riots, when the looting and arson began, when the statues began to be pulled down, when the rampages went on and on for weeks and months after Floyd’s death, support began to wane. And it is dissipating quickly.
The country is not going to sit still for three more months of this. At some point soon, America is going to say: Enough is enough.
And what dose Nasty Nancy think about when Clinton sent in his own Storm Troopers to take little Eliane Gozalas away from his reletive to appease his old buddy Castro
IF, and it’s a BIG “IF,” this Federal Courthouse is allowed to be destroyed, perhaps the people of Portland would like it better if they had to travel to a far city to go to Federal Court.
Perhaps even to a different state.
This is the mindset of Democrats, the people that want to control this country: that people that are in law enforcement who stand in the way of using political terror to push their agenda are “Nazis”. No, THEY are the Nazis.
so the antif**k-up are the current “stormtroopers” of the democrap party? the press, the idiot democrat congressional congress has no idea of what a Nazi Stormtrooper was. “think before you speak and read before you think.” the media and politicians use words they have no concept of their true meaning. Himmler, you all know Himmler-right. Need to read HISTORY. Himmler developed and molded the stormtroopers into a viscous organization the likes of which the current American public, and idiot politicians has no idea of its violence.
-The SS: The Growth and Organisation of Himmler’s Stormtroopers (World War II Germany) good book one needs to read it to understand the meaning of the word Nazi Stormtrooper.
Nancy Pelosi Shieker of the House
Geeze I thought Spaceforce had recruited quicky, AG Barr playing Darth Vader building a deathstar in Portland.
It’s time to be more aggressive in dealing with these little Red snowflakes. Hose them down with dyed water. Use pink dye since they are pinkos that way the color fits. They will stick out like sore thumbs and will be easily identifiable to the police for arrest. Walking around in pink dye will also expose them to the public negating their hiding behind their masks. Some good old public humiliation will do wonders for these spoiled ones. Finally, put word out on the street that anyone who kicks the shit out of one them will not be prosecuted.
It is a pity that so many are so ignorant. Stormtroopers (Sturmabteilung) were agents of the German elite service, and were above the law. They had unlimited power. Their purpose was to implement Nazi rule.
The Stormtroopers in Portland are the members of Antifa.
need to read that the elite SS stormtroopers took no prisoners and prisoners to be interrogated and than shot in the head.
-people shot on the street were searched for valuables and left for the populus to remove them. prisons shot in captivity were previously searched for valuables, upon death, dental fillings removed and body dumped in a garbage bin or removed to a mass grave site.
-imagine that inmates of the Black Dolphin prison in Russia are now members of either the gestapo or elite SS. do you really think that bar fly pelosi, knee pad harris, or any of the current members of the democrap congress can comprehend the degree of violence that these individuals employed with impunity. NO!
-words have no meaning unless one understands the basis for the word and the historical consequences that has followed the “word”
-you really think that the media, press, rioters or congress have any idea of what propaganda they are spouting??? just words with no thought. reminds me of a three y/o arguing with their parents on their ability to fly.
