Portland “Direct Action” Event Looks Familiar

| February 28, 2021

At least two arrests were made after a mostly peaceful protest in Portland, Oregon, turned violent.

Businesses in downtown Portland were again damaged and vandalized by reported antifa rioters, protesting President Biden’s opening of a temporary child migrant facility in Texas.

“When these people come through, and we’ve lost an entire day of business which means that’s impacting my team member’s wages. This has been going on for nine months,” said Jim Rice, who owns Fields Bar and Grill in downtown Portland. “Where are our resources? When do we get enough resources to finally go after and fix this?”

Portland anti-ICE rioters smash windows, spray-paint businesses; downtown merchants frustrated

Rioters vandalized several buildings in downtown Portland, Ore., on Saturday night in one of the largest protests in weeks, according to reports.

Around 150 people marched through Portland’s Pearl District in what’s called a “direct action” event, smashing windows of businesses like Starbucks, Chipotle, Umpqua Bank and Urban Pantry and tagging them with graffiti, KION-TV in Portland reported.

One vandal wrote “banks suck” on Umpqua Bank’s façade, a Portland Tribune reporter tweeted.

The marchers were protesting the Biden administration’s immigration policy and the federal agency Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Jim, laddie, if Portland and Washington State governments haven’t expended the necessary resources and force of will by now, chances are pretty good they never are. Read the entire article here: Fox News

    The City brought them upon themselves. Let the mofo burn to the ground for all I care. But don’t use my tax money to rebuild it. And don’t use the insurance company payouts to increase my rates. And you know the rates will go up, despite the fact that most insurance companies won’t pay a claim that is the result of a “riot”.

    When We, The People of that area finally get fed up with the BS, it will stop.

  2. How come these peeps were arrested for peacefully damaging buildings??? Maybe it would look bad that the WH incident racked up some peaceful protester arrests where their was almost zip damage and didn’t arrest any of rioters damaging businesses in portland.

  3. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    POOOOOOR snowflakes, how’s that “Defund the Police” an all that other liberal horseshit working out for you?

  4. SFC D says:

    “Direct Action”? Is that a new euphemism for “burn down the neighborhood for no good reason and zero gain”? Once they finish destroying everything, they’ll bitch because they have no stores, no food, no banks, just a west coast version of Beirut. There needs to be direct action from the local residents and whatever law enforcement is left. What say you, Nancy? How about you, Chuckie?

    Teddi “soi boi” Wheeler is the Police Commissioner… he’s calling the shots over in the People’s Democratic Republic of Portlandistan. He had his chance to stop this almost a year ago and failed. The residence vote for him as Mayor/Commissioner twice… and their getting it hard and fast just about every night.

  6. Sarge says:

    Trying to figure out how smashing windows and leaving graffiti will solve the problem.

    Maybe Lars can provide some context.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      I’m sure that he’s sucking every dick he can thinking that he’ll have a chance at a position of authority in some “Reeducation Camp”, that or he’s gallivanting around with those maggots!

      • Commissar says:

        One thing the last four year has made clear; damn near everything conservative drones say is projection.

        Like your comment, for instance.

        • Ret_25X says:

          you know, damn near everything progtards like Dumkopf says is a lie wrapped in stupidity and reinforced with violence.

          Poor poor Dumkopf. He’s both stupid and dishonest, but doesn’t know it.

          What a schmuck.

        • Deckie says:

          Hood trash.

          Easy to talk shit when you hide behind your sheltered walls of academia doing absolutely dick with your life.

          Fucking dickhead.

    • Forest Bondurant says:

      Awhile back, I think The Other Whitey wrote, “These leftist bullies are getting used to messing with people who aren’t looking for trouble. Things will get…interesting…when they try this shit on the guy who woke up wishing a motherfucker would.”

      I think that quote is appropriate here as well.

  7. OWB says:

    There is nothing peaceful about a deliberately smashed window. Even it is your own window, which these were not.

    Well, I disagree with the Biden immigration policy. I fail to see how smashing your window or spray painting my neighbor’s house will do a thing about it.

    • David says:

      Which leads logically to a) concentrated effort to ID these clowns then b) trash THEIR world. Trash their apartments, leave them windowless, burn their cars. Lex talionis knows no race or ideology.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        “Trash their apartments…”

        I’m sure that the vast majority of those maggots live in either college dorms which the rebuilds of would be foisted on the taxpayer or the basements of their parents’ homes, hmmm…

      “Mostly peaceful”

  8. 26Limabeans says:

    Stopped into Portland to refuel the DC-8 just outta SeaTac while
    DEROS from somewhere. Empty cabin except for me another guy and
    a Sky Marshall way in the back. Other than that all I know about
    Portland is what I see in the news. And here.

  9. Smitty says:

    And a week from now the trial of the George Floyd cops will result in more of the same. MSM will blame the white extremists and MAGA.

  10. xyzzy says:

    I say we give these Antifa scum the same treatment that’s due the MAGA scum that stormed the Capitol. Hang them by the neck until they are dead.

    Who’s with me?

    • rgr769 says:

      Nobody, because most of us aren’t demented Progs and moonbats. We want the Antifastanis and BLMers who commit what they call direct action to be prosecuted. We are also fully aware that those that entered the Capitol didn’t burn anything down. But that those that assaulted anyone should be prosecuted.

    • SFC D says:

      Don’t become the thing you despise.

  11. Tallywhagger says:

    Some of these merchants need to acquire small scale flame throwers.

  12. Hate_me says:

    I want to open a business in downtown Portland with a bunch of vet buddies.

    Drawing from the roof Korean example, we’ll establish the place with a perimeter, and anyone exhibiting hostile intent will be put down. Hard, and definitively.

    From what I’ve been led to believe, these issues in Portland are built around a small faction of a hundred or so ne’er-do-wells. In my experience, nothing undermines a bully more than a well-timed punch in the face.

    As soon as someone winds up to throw a Molotov cocktail – bam. Justifiable self defense, and reason to not light another.

    Simple, cheap, targeted.

  13. SGT Ted says:

    “Direct action” is a warfare term. ANTIFA needs to be treated like the unlawful combatants that they are.

  14. QMC says:

    Crap like this happening for the past nine months, is why I more or less shrugged at the overzealous faux outrage of the Jan 6th incident.

  15. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    CNN’s “Fiery, but mostly peaceful” tagline still seems appropriate here.
