Supporters of Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke were seen showing their contempt for President Donald Trump at an El Paso counter-Trump rally in an unconventional way.
Beto supporters took it upon themselves to create and destroy a life-sized piñata of the President with baseball bats. It’s unclear how many of the effigies were made, but a video revealed one being thoroughly struck and likely destroyed by a rally-goer.
O’Rourke, formerly a member of Congress representing El Paso, was holding a rally to distract from President Trump’s ‘Finish the Wall’ event down the road. He was considerably outdrawn in his own home city, with photos of his event revealing the presence of merely hundreds of supporters. Meanwhile, the President’s rally drew almost 10,000 people in the reliably Democratic Texas city.
Watch the disturbing scene at O’Rourke’s sparsely attended rally:
The individuals seen striking the Trump pinata seem to be masked, and the second seen on tape may very well be a minor. If so, he’s likely to have been instructed to attack the effigy of the President by his parents or guardians- demonstrating questionable parenting on their behalf.
It’s common for people to strike or burn effigies of political figures in other countries, but traditionally such a display would be seen as undemocratic or hateful in the United States. The Trump pinata was also created holding a Russian flag, potentially leaving O’Rourke’s mob open to accusations of anti-Slavic sentiment.
As the craftily made piñata was struck with a baseball bat, onlookers could be heard droning on about ‘hatred’ and ‘racism,’ apparently unaware of the irony in accusing others of hatred while attacking effigies of political figures in a crazed frenzy.
These Beto supporters may find like-minded company with radical Islamists in Iran, who have been seen destroying or burning effigies of President Trump with an Israeli flag shirt in similar protests.
Perhaps the former Texas Congressman can take guidance from the anti-American Islamists in Iran for planning his potential Presidential campaign events.
Criminal Charges Against 59 Portland Rioters Dropped by Multnomah County Prosecutors
Giving ANTIFA a free pass.
An analysis of court and police records by Portland’s KGW8 has revealed that Multnomah prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against 59 individuals arrested for crimes during the city’s nightly destructive riots. More than 400 people have been arrested and charged for rioting offenses since ANTIFA-linked street criminals began staging destructive nightly riots in the liberal city, going so far as to attack a federal courthouse with improvised mortars and to riot in the streets armed with improvised explosive devices.
The sum of dropped cases is almost 15% of total arrests made during the nightly riots.
Nine of the criminal cases dropped by Multnomah County prosecutors had included felony charges, including felony riot, arson, and theft. The other fifty cases involve misdemeanor rioting offenses, such as disorderly conduct, interfering with a police officer, and resisting arrest.
At least one rioter is described as having deployed a molotov cocktail device in the street riots, bragging of his alleged criminal act in discussions with other ANTIFA operatives. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office dropped the case against the alleged arsonist after a grand jury declined to return an indictment.
Liberal Democratic Portland city officials continue to urge the authorities to treat the violent ANTIFA rioters with kid gloves, calling for no more than ‘targeted arrests’ to be made as the gang ransacks buildings, statues, and stages planned attacks on police. The Portland police have largely been called off by city authorities, leaving federal police officers to protect infrastructure such as the Hatfield Federal Courthouse without city support.
As city officials such as the liberal county prosecutors and Mayor Ted Wheeler openly flout the free pass they’re handing to ANTIFA to attack federal buildings, riot, and destroy property, the street criminals will likely receive the message that they’ll be let off easy if they can avoid being arrested for serious crimes that can’t be ignored.
