Yeah, he's great.

Portland is really blowing up right now. Andy Ngo has clips on his twitter feed. "Protestors" are even forming shieldwalls against the Feds lol
What do they even claim to be 'protesting' against this time? Or is it still the nominal inequity etc. etc.?
Most of these 'protestors' just seem to be marching for the sake of it now, as all protests seem to devolve into at the end.

They are imprisoning without charge, beating innocent people in the streets and attacking random civilians.

If it walks like, talks like, acts like....

Detaining people involved in a public disturbance is perfectly legal and proper..
As for beating people (i wouldnt say innocent given we have no idea what they have or havent done) pretty sure thats standard police practice the world over, nothing 'fascist' about it.
You havent described a single thing that is fascist though? Given these tactics are used by countries on both the left and right...

This has been the state of Portland over the last 4-5 years, at the very least. Why are people surprised that the Police Department has asked help from Homeland Security? Why is the Mayor of Portland asking the PD to cease and desist?

It's a ****ing shitshow.

It's confusing cause and effect. The militarised feds have outraged people with their behaviour and now they are fighting back. Hardly surprising.

This is trash. There were some minor disturbances basically. There were street protests, mainly peaceful. The whole thing has been wildly overblown by right wing media so that Trump can use it as re-election campaign fodder. What's going on now is a federal police riot.

These riots have been happening for YEARS in Portland. As far back as 2015, in fact.

How delusional and ignorant can you be?

This is only a small snippet of what Portland is like. It's a cesspit. Primarily Extreme Left and quite often Extreme Right ransacking the city. It's a disgrace.

I really don't care what I sound to you. I really couldn't care less.

Typical behaviour of someone so far to the Left that anyone who shows any sort of disagreement is automatically in 'adoration for Trump'.

Trump is planning to rule by decree.
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-waterboarding

Full dictatorship by any other name.

I knew this would happen as we approached election day - Trump has no intention of departing office.
Totally! It's not like Barack Obama pushed through executive orders in January 2017 before he was due to leave office or anything.
(Original post by Fullofsurprises)
Oh and I suspect that Johnson/Cummings are planning the same for the UK.
I doubt that very much. You do know Boris has a 79 seat majority and was elected democratically?

If either of you is bothered to watch a 3min video, here's a rather good explanation by Donut Operator (an actual cop), and a link to the bill by Congress. He can explain better than I ever could.

Basically AOC, Pelosi, et al, who are asking for these officers to be identified, or calling them 'Stormtroopers' are talking claptrap.

In fact, both of you, who have called the Federal Officers and the DHS 'fascist', have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
Given that the provisional wing of the Democratic Socialists of America have been going around doxing policemen and publishing their addresses on Twitter, I'm unsurprised that DSA members and supporters have been going around and calling for measures that would make doxing police easier.

Let this be a lesson to American voters - if you vote for Nancy Pelosi, or Ilhan Omar, or AOC, or whoever your local leftist candidate is, you get an anti-Semitic, hard-left Representative. You don't get to pick and choose what bits of their ideology you support; either you vote for a moderate Democrat or Republican candidate, or you get Antifa.

Seems to do an egregious disservice to those who have suffered under actual fascism when people bandy about the term as nothing but a meaningless slur these days...
Or define themselves as anti-fascists, define everyone right of Marx as a fascist and violently attack them while claiming to only attack fascists.

I see. Would you describe British actions during the Troubles as fascist?

Trump's going to do what people want him to do, i.e send more "Stormtrooper" to help secure the Courthouse - "CaN wE cAll it FaSciSm yet?"

Pelosi will continue to harp on about how it's Trump inciting violence, etc..

Tomorrow night will be the same, if not worse.

I know, but they have occupied federal property. There's no way Pelosi or AOC can justify storming a courthouse without any provocation in a way that doesn't make them look like idiots, in the same way that ”the riots are just single mums just stealing bread to feed their families” did.

I suppose Pelosi, AOC and the like are doubling-down. If they say anything different now, it'll come across as accepting Trump was right, and they can never do that. I don't know, just what I think.

Offensive rubbish.

The protests were peaceful in recent times. The provocations that kicked all this off were far right thugs parading through the city a few years ago and the militarised police siding with them openly carrying weapons and so on and defending them against protests.

The current wave of federal violence against the Left was kicked off by graffiti on federal buildings.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...ge%2Fstory-ans

That was met with beatings, shootings and internment by federal military.

Trump is using this as a political tool. The situation in Portland did not in any way justify the violence now being directed at many peaceful people by armed right wing soldiers acting on home soil against civilians without the approval of Congress.

US Navy vet in Portland went to talk to camoflaged DHC who had removed their IDs about their duty to the Constitution.

"Just as he was about to leave, David said, the federal officers emerged. They rushed a line of protesters nearby, knocking them to the ground. David walked toward a gap in the line, calling out to the officers.

“Why are you not honoring your oath?” he bellowed. “Why are you not honoring your oath to the Constitution?”

An officer trained his weapon on David’s chest as several agents pushed him, sending David stumbling backward. But he regained his center and tried again. Another agent raised his baton and began to beat David, who stood unwavering with his arms at his sides. Then another officer unloaded a canister of chemical irritant spray into David’s face.

That was all he could handle, David said, he turned and walked away, flipping off the federal forces as he went."

As I've said, they can try to double down and justify it, but it will make them look foolish as AOC's bread remarks did

Were these protests several years ago entirely peaceful?
