On Tuesday night, BLM and Antifa chanted, “Every city, every town, burn the precincts to the ground.”

On Tuesday night, the rioters tried to burn the Portland Police Association, the police union building.

On Wednesday night, a couple of hundred people showed up at the Portland East Precinct as we reported earlier, trying to fulfill their chant, some of them attempted to burn down the building with officers inside.

The rioters also attacked the police when they responded to stop them from burning the building down, as the local KOIN 6 folks reported. They used powerful green lasers that have blinded police in the past, commercial-grade fireworks, and other projectiles at the police. Officers were hit by some of the attacks. Because of “life safety” issues, they then employed tear gas and crowd control munitions.


Portland police said that officers were pelted with large rocks that were the size of shot puts and they had to repel attacks from the violent rioters two more times over the following two hours.

In a new tactic, the rioters also tried to run over several of the police officers with a truck as they fled the scene.

According to police, several more projectiles including heavy rocks the size of shot puts were thrown towards them. Some of these rocks hit officers. They also threw balloons full of paint at the officers. Police said they had to repel two more attacks within a couple of hours. Several arrests were made over the course of the attacks on the precinct.

Here’s how the “march” was organized and there are plans for a “march” tomorrow.

So these are the same people that Democrats have been selling as “peaceful protesters” attacked by the evil federal goons. The federal goons aren’t involved anymore; they’re still there but have been sitting back per the deal that the DHS has with the state for them to deal with these criminals.


These people are still attacking and trying to kill Portland Police.

So, now will Democrats be calling the Portland Police or the Oregon State Troopers “Mayor Ted Wheeler or Governor Kate Brown’s secret police” like they did to President Donald Trump? Or are Democrats finally willing to admit what all the rest of us already know – these Antifa/BLM attackers are terrorists, they need to be locked up for a very long time and it’s long since time they were.
