The media, of course, is only reporting that last bit. That federal officials began shooting tear gas at the Mostly Peaceful Insurrectionists.
They omit the part where the Insurrectionists were throwing flaming bags of garbage at the courthouse to set it on fire.
See antifa’s communications arm CNN, for example:
Portland mayor tear gassed after speaking with protesters on presence of federal agents
After speaking with protesters, as if that was the action that prompted the tear gas, rather than the Mostly Peaceful Arson.
Ted Wheeler was present to lead the insurrectionists/terrorists — wait, supposedly he was there to “listen” to them. So: He wasn’t there to lead them, but to take orders from them.
It’s time to abandon the federal courthouse, send Portland a bill for a constructive taking (a constructive taking occurs when a government deprives you of all use of a property but won’t admit it, because admitting it would require them to pay the people they stole the land from), and announce that the district courthouse will be relocated, permanently, to either the extreme eastern border of Oregon or, better yet, to Idaho, and that these cocksuckers can enjoy travelling seven fucking hours every time they have dealings with a federal court.
Forever. Not as a temporary measure. Forever, Portland cocksuckers will have to get on a Grayhound bus for all business with federal courts. And Portland leftwing cocksucker lawyers will have to relocate to the conservative-leaning sticks of the eastern Oregon forests or of blood-red Idaho.
Time to total’y Destroy Antifa and arrest all those who support and finanace these crinimals
It’s hard to know if it was Antifa setting the fires or if it was Trump’s thugs in his wag the dog assault on peaceful protestors.
@Ronald J. Ward:
Where did you glean that opinion from? Was it from the sea of red MAGA hats in Portland’s riotous mob?
Maybe Trump got the idea from the burning of the Reichstag.
You’re an idiot. There’s no “maybe” about that fact.
@Ronald J. Ward: @Greg: How does it feel to be murderous Marxists, bent on destroying the United States?
@Ronald J. Ward: Yeah, because the 50 days before the feds showed up were peaceful and “the summer of love”. Right?
There was so much peace and tranquility, the federal officers had to bring their own spray paint to deface the buildings, their own fireworks to set of inside, their own laser pointers to blind themselves with and their own bats to bust out windows with it. For the past 57 days, certainly no one other than federal officers has been rioting.
The stupidity is strong with this one.
@Greg: van der Luub was a tool of socialists, just like the Portland army of useful idiots. But, hopefully Trump understands the lessons taught about the perils of ignoring political terror.
Trump cultist have gone further off the deep end than I earlier predicted.
Nothing matters. There is no possible sin this evil son of a bitch can do that his blind cultist wouldn’t bow in reverence to him. Even as his thugs are beating and stealing cameras from the press, here you are again at his side. Going from children in cages to tear gassing moms is perfectly acceptable to his blind brownshirts. Even his apparent intent to intimidate voters with his gestapo style forces is just dandy for you.
In the meantime, Trumpvirus is rapidly taking over and the great economy entrusted to Trump is crumbling while he not only remains clueless on how to deal with it but uses every opportunity to profiteer from it.
There is no possible sin that would deter you. Nothing.
@Ronald J. Ward:
Ever notice how those thugs, as you call them, are all dressed in black? Ever wonder why in multiple videos you see those all black dressed thugs knocking out windows and then walking away as the useful idiot protesters pour into a building for the purpose of looting?
Now, I fully understand that useful idiots like you and Comrade Greggie don’t pay attention to the small details, but those all dressed in black thugs are Antifa. And I promise you, they are not on Trump’s side. They want anarchy and that is what Portland is and has been for some time. They just got emboldened during the days of summer love in Ferguson and Baltimore. And they know that Democrat mayor and governors are cowards.
But have no fear, AJ/Ward, the more emboldened they get, the closer to your home they get and sooner or later, you also can enjoy the summer of love.
Trump enablers have abandoned any form of rational or critical thinking, clinging only to the lies and misinformation instructed to them by their handlers.
Who precisely are these men dressed in green that Trump sent? We’ve learned they aren’t specialized in riots or civil unrest but from. The Customs and Border Protection, ICE, Transportation Security Administration, Even the Coast Guard, those experience in boarder patroll and screening airline passengers. What the hell!
Trump is sending in untrained people with an obvious intention of creating more chaos and violence in what was generally peaceful protest. Sure, you had some people committing crimes but that doesn’t warrant federal interference, much less untrained people. And it’s being proven that actual protesters or vandals are not even the ones being targeted.
We know this is another political stunt, done only for possible political gain. Innocent people will suffer and possibly die while the Constitution takes another ugly Trump assault for no other reason than Trumps personal benefit. But that doesn’t matter to a Trump supporter. Nothing matters. Nothing.
@Ronald J. Ward:
You didnt watch the press conference with DHS so your glowing ignorance shines brightly.
When the Federal building as attacked the agents all inside, not bothering anyone. The anarchists tore down the fence then ripped the plywood off the windows to smash the glass so they could gain entry to torch the building, they had barricaded the exit.
All of this was filmed.
This is federal property there were always federal employees using the facility, they were sent back up because the Mayor is ordering his police to stand down even if that means my employees are murdered.
@Ronald J. Ward:
Some of them were BORTAC.
People who display as much ignorance as you do usually are embarrassed but I think you are too pathetically uninformed to even realize when you are showing blatant stupidity.
You mean like David Dorn and all the children that have been slaughtered by your “mostly peaceful” protesters? And since Trump was not in office, how do you explain the riots, looting and burning that was done under Obama? Why don’t you explain how Trump benefits from rioting, looting and building burning left wingers?
@Ronald J. Ward:
What difference does it make who they are? If there weren’t any leftist terrorists attacking federal property, they wouldn’t even be there. Look at Dallas; no federal troops in unmarked vans picking thugs up off the streets. Know why? There aren’t any leftist terrorists staging violent riots there. It’s the same in many other cities. See the lesson? Nah… you can’t. You’re a leftist.
People like AJ take great pride in their stupidity. For them on the left, it’s a competition.
Being an idiot yourself, you really aren’t qualified to make such a judgement.
@Greg: Sorry Greg there is a consensus on the data indeed Retire05 has reached the correct conclusion, The science is settled You are an idiot, several villages have called inquiring about you to see if you were their missing idiot. We have assured them that you were indeed our idiot referred them to Portland and Seattle where they have gathered entire villages comprised of idiots. The rumor of special breeding programs of idiots has been confirmed and they have marked the brooders by having them wear Yellow and present themselves to federal authorities.
Ok this might happen more and more https://twitter.com/monsieree/status/1286455359482126341
July 25, 2020 — Federal Agents Push Into Portland Streets, Stretching Limits of Their Authority — Videos Show How Federal Officers Escalated Violence in Portland
The President is lying. The video camera and witnesses on the scene are not. Federal forces on the streets of Portland have progressively escalated the anger and violence. Given that the results are obvious and Trump has only doubled down, it clear that this is by intention rather than a result of stupidity. Escalating violence and casting himself as the only one who can suppress it is part of his effort to remain in office.
It’s either Trump or American democracy. You get to choose in November. If you fail to vote, or if you choose poorly, you may not get a chance to choose again.
@Greg: And what liberal news source wrote this and provided selected video tape? I know that greggie the rock failed to source it.
When you click on the link, you’re looking at the source. Do you really need further explanation in order to figure out what it is? Maybe so. You can’t seem to figure out that the escalating violence between Trump’s enforcers and citizens on the streets wouldn’t be happening if the enforcers weren’t there to engage in it.
They’re present against the will of the Oregon’s elected State and local governments, as well as Portland’s policing authorities, who rightly predicted what the results of their interference would be.
@Greg: I didn’t realize the title was the source. Looks like greggie the rock buys into the nyt hook line and sinker. If you could be trusted, I could connect you with someone in Portland who refers your nyt report pure garbage.
Two more questions for you, Comrade Greggie:
when did the rioting, looting and burning start in Portland?
how long have Federal LEOs been in Portland?
Andy Ngo has films of the Portland (according to NYSlimes, mostly peaceful) riots going back a couple of months.
What the hell was a 37 year old white broad who is an attorney doing with Antifa?
By linking the NYSlimes, you prove you like being lied to.
If little Miss Commie Jennifer and her Antifa goons come to my town, they will be met with such fire power they never knew existed.
Don’t waste your time. You’re not wasting any more of mine. The only solution to the serious problems resulting from man presently occupying the Oval Office is his removal. That’s why we have elections.
The problem is that your Jackass in Chief has sent his untrained goons to beat and gas protesters on the streets in her town. She’s a 37-year-old mother of two and an attorney practicing Family Law. Not exactly the face of Trump’s favorite boogieman, ANTIFA.
Portland Mom Says She Was Groped & Assaulted by Feds During Protest Arrest
Like the 54-year-old Navy vet Trump’s goons beat the hell out of for daring to just stand there, she doesn’t look particularly intimidating. In my opinion, the people attacking them are the ones bearing a close resemblance to fascists.
I’m anti-fascist. The Constitution of my nation is anti-fascist. Where are you on the issue, Little Miss “firepower they never new existed”?
Yep. And I had to endure the failures of Obama for 8 long years. Surely our representative republic can last another 5.
Untrained? Do you even know the training that BORTAC officers go through? Those “untrained goons” are some of the same people that protect Nancy Pelosi’s sagging ass. Those guys should walk off the job and say they will no longer protect her sagging ass.
Are you making the claim that since she is white, 37, an attorney and a mother of two she can’t be Antifa? Why wasn’t she home with her children instead of trying to incite a riot?
Communists are anti-fascist. You’re a Commie.
So now you refer to a document you have little understand of? Hilarious.
You need to learn to spell.
Does it emphasize “fire power they never knew existed”?
They’re essentially Special Weapons and Tactics personnel. They’re trained in the coordinated application of special weapons, force, and violence. They’re called in when peaceful measures don’t work. They come with an aggressive attitude. They’re not trained in crowd control, or in peacefully deescalating tense or dangerous situations. What the hell do you not understand?
Why do right-wing idiots presume they know all? This does seem to be part of the profile.
We took the time to watch the press conference, the one where all the false accusations were addressed.
You just repeat the garbage lies of cable talking heads, or pro insurrection sites.
Deescalte? Maybe they shouldnt start a fight they cant possibly win.
If someone was trying to burn me alive I would be aggressive too.
What the hell do you not understand?
The unit was created in 1984 to serve a civil disturbance
function in response to rioting at legacy Immigration and
Naturalization Service detention facilities
Don’t worry, Comrade Greggie. No one can see you when you soil yourself after you have been shown the fool and idiot you are.
Maybe they should give more thought to who they’re now gassing and clubbing.
July 25, 2020 – ‘Wall of Vets,’ join protests in Portland
@Greg: greggie the rock, how do you know they were veterans? Oh, that is because the nyt said there were. What a rock!
Horse hockey. BORTAC was not “created to serve in civil disturbance”. They were created to respond to and neutralize terrorist threats. Protesting Portland moms and U.S. military vets are not terrorist threats. The reason they’re in Portland is because they’re a tool that Trump could get his hands on.
What their own website said as if December 26, 2007:
@Greg: Protesting Portland moms and U.S. military vets are not terrorist threats.
What we have are the same female protestors that simply put on a yellow shirt and very few real vets mostly stolen valor fakes that never served even in ROTC.
Yes some abc depts are not what they used to be such is BLM they dont sell federal land to settlers anymore.
The Border Patrol Tactical Unit provides an immediate- response capability to emergent and high-risk incidents requiring specialized skills and tactics. So these are the “untrained” guys you smear you also know the full scope of their training.
As they deal with drug smugglers I’m sure they can gather evidence against terrorists that attack federal property.
Where did you get your “facts”?
@Greg: Guess what we wouldn’t have in Portland if left wing political terrorists were not rioting every night? Federal officers.
They’ve been called in after a month and a half of left wing violence, riots committed simply for the sake of rioting. They have to protect federal property because the failed Democrat government there can’t be bothered to protect lives and property. Who do you think is coordinating the use of fireworks, umbrellas and leaf blowers against the federal officers? Are they like the telegraph vine that just suddenly everyone gets the same idea at the same time? The riots in Portland and Seattle are coordinated and funded by Sosos surrogates. You aren’t “anti-fascist”. You are whole-heartedly, all in, FULL fascist.
They misspelled “night of left wing terrorism and violence”. Many of the federal cops are vets, too. So, what does that mean? Does being a vet give the terrorists carte blanc to riot and destroy federal property? What’s next, a line of pretend “Covington kids”? Do you think the significance of the left’s lies and subterfuge is lost upon us?
They are facing left wing domestic terrorists. These terrorists use the same tactics as Hamas, hiding among women and children, instigating violence and they whining and crying when retaliatory force is employed. You’re people are terrorists.
