Portland was really out of control last night.

As we reported earlier, Antifa went after one of their usual targets, setting fire to the Portland Police Association, the police union building for the second time, after three tries. This one may have been the most damage and the biggest fire yet.

They also set up barricades in the middle of the streets and set fire to them in residential neighborhoods.


Since they have stopped going after the federal courthouse, they’ve branched out to the residential neighborhoods in south, east, and north Portland. They’ve been harassing and even assaulting little old ladies.

But last night, buoyed by setting fires elsewhere and rampaging with few consequences, they threatened to burn down an entire apartment building after the residents had the temerity to look out the window and tell them to shut up because they had to go to work in the morning.

They assailed the residents who dared to speak up.

“You’ve really internalized capitalism if you’re more worried about getting a good night’s sleep so you can f*cking work,” yelled one guy.

“Let me see your face!” threatened a girl.

“Black Lives Matter,” another intoned as one gave a finger to the residents.

“We’re going to burn your building down!” shouted another.

A girl left them with a threatening last comment, “We know where you live!”

So these folks who profess to care about “black lives” would burn down a building with men, women, and children inside, and who knows who many black lives? Should we be at the point when this excuse shouldn’t protect them anymore? These are terrorists, terrorizing the unprotected citizens of Portland, it has absolutely nothing to do with “black lives” and everything to do with anarchy, chaos, and Communism.


This is what happens after many of the local politicians still wouldn’t condemn trying to burn down a police precinct. While Mayor Ted Wheeler did, he’s let these terrorists get out of control for far too long. They’ve completely abrogated their responsibility to these citizens.

The citizens were even left to stop the fire in the street and clean up the mess after the Antifa rioters finally left.

Enough is enough.
