As They Turn To Burning Bibles, Portland Rioters Show Their True Colors

| August 2, 2020

Left-wing activists burn a stack of Bibles in front of the federal courthouse in Portland

Protesters flocked to the Justice Center and the federal courthouse in Portland again on Friday night, lighting fires and burning American flags and Bibles in the streets.

According to the Portland Police, which did not engage with demonstrators, the crowd lit several fires, including a large bonfire in the middle of the street in front of the federal courthouse. One video shows protesters feeding a small fire with Bibles, which were engulfed in flames.

While rioters previously attacked federal buildings, businesses, and even officers, this weekend, they found a new target: Bibles.

A video posted to Twitter on Saturday shows rioters holding Black Lives Matter signs tossing Bibles into a fire. Bystanders stood and watched as the flames licked away at the pages of the books.

Later in the Twitter thread, Cheong pointed out that the violent and chaotic nature of these protestors is not correlated with “protesting against police brutality.”

“I don’t know what burning the Bible has to do with protesting against police brutality. Do not be under the illusion that these protests and riots are anything but an attempt to dismantle all of Western Civilization and upend centuries of tradition and freedom of religion,” he continued.

Donald Trump Jr. also commented on the video criticizing it as an escalation of Antifa.

“Now we move to the book burning phase. I’m pretty sure ANTIFA doesn’t actually stand for what they say it stands for. Maybe just remove the anti part of [their] name and it’s perfect,” he wrote.

They lay on the symbolism with a trowel, hoping to incite conservative reactions that will further their agenda. Remember lessons from SERE- in the hands of the enemy the Flag is a piece of cloth. Same for religious tomes- just paper for street theater. The paper that counts are the ballots cast in November.

Thanks, Senior Chief.

  1. Shades of Berlin, maybe these A Holes are looking to start a 4th Reich in the US.

  2. Green Thumb says:

    Maybe Antifa should burn a copy of the Quran.

    Then they might have a problem they do not want.

    • Doc Savage says:

      I think the difference here is, burning the bibles will likely not result in world wide riots and deaths as we saw with the burning of the Quran back in 2012.

    • Richg says:

      …hmmm, if only a group of well trained specialists, on the run from the government for a crime they didn’t commit, could infiltrate one of these burnings and carry out the burning of Korans, then silently slip away and leave the fools standing in the street… that would be great.

    Yepper, saw this bull sh^t the other night/morning on the news feed while I was surfing the inherwebz. Pissed me off royally. Whether you believe in a Supreme Being or not, burning ANY book is just wrong on so many levels. And if you don’t think the Supreme Being of any Religion is not waiting on you to show your Happy Azz up, then we need to talk. Better to believe that there is a Supreme Being and find out that there isn’t, than to NOT prepare and find out there is. Just saying.

    As ‘Ed points out, this is just one more way to stir up some crap to get a reaction out of people who care about this Country. Keep poking the Bear you sons of bitches (apologies to female K9s), you real close to getting a reaction that you are not going to like.

    If the elected officials of Portland aren’t interested in cleaning up their mess, then we should go ahead and get out the ones that want to leave and nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure. Cancer, untreated, spreads.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Anyone notice that they’re not burning even a single copy of the Koran? IMHO they’re doing a terrific job of being someone else’s useful idiots!

      • Fyrfighter says:

        Well, they’ve got the advantage of having always been idiots, so all that was needed was for the “movement) to make them “useful”…

  4. Fyrfighter says:

    This kind of crap should make clear to anyone with more than the absolute minimum number of brain cells required to support life that as Trump Jr. and the twitter poster point out, these people are about nothing more than completely destroying our American way of life, and as such, we should ALL be motivated to turn out and vote in November! (As well as doing all you can to prepare should they decide to go kinetic when / if Biden looses )

  5. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    The Nazis burned books in Germany, the commies burned them in Russia, ditto with statues and memorials being defaced and torn down. AS TO what they think they’re doing, the opposite is true, the Working People of Red State America are more than fed up with the parasitic little fleabags and are ready to fight back, I’m looking forward to seeing a huge backlash against them at the ballot box! IMHO antifa and blm are doing a terrific job of uniting those they oppose against them.

    • Commissar says:

      And Christians have been burning books for centuries. In fact they have been a leading factor the the loss of troves of ancient works over the centuries simply because they were deemed heretical.

      And the burning continues to this century.

      From dungeons and dragons books, Harry Potter books, the Quran, Bible versions their denominations see as heretical (King James for some, NIV for others)….

      • The Dead Man says:

        Still doing Herr Goebbels proud. When you can’t subvert a conversation, you deflect. Isn’t that right?

        I won’t be so crass as to assume you’d have the balls to do it. I do wonder if the cover isn’t inspiration from Talcum X’s call for a modern kristallnacht? I’d suggest you came up with an idea on your own, but even my sense of humor won’t go that far.

        • Hondo says:

          Poodle here has a long history of attempting to change the subject when he has no good counterargument.

          He also has a long history of hypocrisy. He’s castigated others previously for precisely the type of argument he’s making here (“whataboutism”, a variant of the tu quoque form of ad hominem attack and logical fallacy).

          • The Dead Man says:

            Oh I’m very well aware. Been around long enough to remember Nodrog jokes being thrown around.

            • Hondo says:

              IMO it’s still worth pointing out, if only for the benefit of those who haven’t been following the site long enough to know Commissar’s history here.

      • Just Lurkin says:

        Lars your moronic allies are currently arguing about what 2+2 equals. You really need to take a good hard look at what the left has become.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          They SAY that they are going to start a revolution while at least 98% can’t even start a lawnmower or figure out which bathroom to use. Just think of how many pieces they’ll get their asses torn into when they start messing with everyday working folks who just want to be left alone and we’ve already seen samples of it!

      • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

        So, Lars… are you OK with this? Do you support this? You go out and support your Antifa friends by playing medic, is this OK with you?

        • RetiredDevilDoc8404 says:

          Senior, equating that douchebag Lars with a medic of any sort wounds my soul – he’s maybe qualified to lick bedpans clean (but only with post cleaning inspections by his betters).

          • Fyrfighter says:

            As a former 91B, and a current civilian medic, i take GREAT offense at being associated with Lars in any way, shape or form!

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          So just what DO those antifa pukes do for medicine, spray some lavender oil and sing “Kum ba Yah”?

      • Ret_25X says:

        False, historically and emotionally.

        Nice try, blaming a billion people for the actions of a few, but I note that the Alexandria library was burned not by Christians, but by an imperial army counterattacking rebels.

        As for Harry Potter, Qurans, etc…I note that they are readily available.

        I will note one thing because you are too stupid to notice it yourself.

        Book burners all share the lowest form of collectivism…racism.

        If you find a book burner you find a racist.

        Now, those of us with higher cognitive function than minions such as yourself knew all along that Antifarce and BtLM were racist from concept to execution, but you guys on the “inside” cannot face your own nature.

        Therefore I’ll say it.

        If you support Antifarce or BtLM YOU are a racist. The lowest form of collective scum.

        • Fyrfighter says:

          Yeah, he’s basically blaming all Christians for the actions of a few inbred retards like those of the westboro baptist church…


      • Sarge says:

        when is the last time Christians here burned books? Other than me burning a few porno mags in Iraq I needed to get rid of before a HMW inspection…

  6. Sarge says:

    Great ending.

  7. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    I live across the Columbia from this flaming dumpster fire and see/hear about it everyday. Every story reminds me of film of the SA roaming the streets and burning book and destroying Jewish businesses… and the people of Portland still won’t stand up and tell the Pantifa punks to stop.

    This is what they have tolerated for years and it’s bit them in the ass for 60+ days now… with no end in sight.

  8. Hack Stone says:

    But place a slice of bacon on the door of a mosque and you will be charged with a hate crime.

    In New York, you can vandalize St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and the District Attorney will refuse to file charges, but if you put paint on the “Black Lives Matter” mural in front of Trump Plaza, you get hammered.

  9. Ex-PH2 says:

    Book burnings, 1933.

  10. Herbert J Messkit says:

    Two people in District of Columbia were arrested for CHALKING. Pro life messages on the sidewalk in front of an abortion clinic. They are trying to rub our noses in it; concerning who is ALLOWED to protest

  11. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    Wow. Those are some Serious Anarchists. It is clear as Crystal that the Night belongs to those Serious Anarchists.

    Seems familiar, somehow.

    They should Seek Help.

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    How long before they set the entire city on fire?

  13. Carlton G Long says:

    These people are risking incurring God’s wrath, which is eternally worse than anything that any government can do to them.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Just step aside and get out of their way, Carlton. They are on a roll, a BIG roll. They think they are somehow superior to everything else around them and therefore can destroy whatever they see, no questions asked. They are too blind to see the edge of the hill ahead of them.

      Even lemmings are not this stupid.

      Just get out of their way.

      • Carlton G Long says:

        Amen…I leave it in Our Lady’s hands to pray for them

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Just watch this brief clip, CGL, and find some comfort in knowing that there is not much difference between the dodos and the bookburners/antifas/whatevers.

  14. Wireman611 says:

    I saw where they are burning crosses as well. Going back to their roots as it were.

  15. Anonymous says:

    Fascists gonna fascist.

  16. Ex-PH2 says:

    Illinois Nazis are bad enough. These dorks are worse.

    How long before they change clothes?

    • The Other Whitey says:

      “His name is Elwood Blues. He lives in Chicago. And it gets better: he’s a CATHOLIC!”

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      IF only they lined up on a bridge over a river… and the weather was really, really cold… and you had the classic 1970 Chevy Impala with a V-8… and the river’s surface was covered with VERY thin ice….

      What? I can dream, can’t I?

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        Or a 1974 Dodge Monaco…a cop car…with a cop motor…a 440 cubic inch plant…with cop tires…cop suspension…cop shocks…pre catalytic converters so it’ll run good on regular gas…oh…and fix the cigarette lighter!

  17. The Other Whitey says:

    Nothing says you oppose fascism like a good old-fashioned book burning, right? Everybody knows what great anti-fascists the Sturmabteilung were! /sarc

    Once again, the fuckers prove that the name they claim for themselves is false advertising.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      How soon will it get really cold up there?

      According to the OFA, they should be getting some chilly wet weather up there around Sept 9 to 9/23, and I have my doubts that they are particularly sturdy enough to do that stuff in cold, wet weather.

    Cross burning, 2020 style. I thought we got rid of these bigots years ago.
