Blood and Chaos in Portland as Violent Antifa Aim to Shut Down Right Wing Rally

Published

Police did little to nothing to stop bloody brawls and altercations in the streets of Portland on Sunday, as violent anarchists attempted to shut down yet another pro-Trump free speech rally.

Organized by a group called the “Patriot Prayer,” the rally-goers had gathered at 2 p.m. for an event dubbed the “Freedom March.” The Facebook event page for the march stated “the more hatred we see the more we have to stand against it. The more threats that we get the more we have to come out to show no fear. The more people lie about us the more we have to show who we are. We will continue to come into Portland with a simple message that is focused on truth, love, and freedom.”

As we have seen with nearly every free speech or pro-Trump rally, the group was almost immediately met with militant counter protesters. Journalists at the scene all noted that there was almost no police presence, and nothing was being done to stop or prevent the fights which broke out throughout the day. The Police Department later tweeted that they are reviewing videos from the altercations and that arrests may be made at a later date.

In footage captured by local journalist Mike Bivins, skateboards, flagpoles, and pepper spray were being used as weapons. The anarchists also burned American flags to antagonize the patriots.

Portland has been a hotbed for clashes between patriots and those who claim to be against fascism while simultaneously attempting to shut down the free speech of those they disagree with.

In June, anarchists began attacking police officers during another pro-Trump free speech rally.

Unlike the counter protest, the Trump rally was peaceful and was not declared to be an unlawful assembly. The rally continued as planned through the scheduled conclusion.

Supporters of President Trump and the freedom of speech have been holding frequent rallies across the nation, nearly all of which feature some type of violence from the Antifa extremists. The next one is scheduled to take place in Boston on August 18. Big League Politics will be live on the scene covering the day’s events as they unfold.

Minneapolis Democratic Mayor Asking for $55 Million Federal Bailout to Repair Race Riot Damages

Now, he wants the taxpayer to pay for the riots.

Published

Minneapolis Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey is ordering city officials to begin a wide-ranging query of the damage done to the city’s infrastructure from the race riots that began last week after the death of George Floyd, planning on requesting a federal bailout for the city to repair the damages done by “protestors.”

Early preliminary estimates gauge the price tag of property damage from the riots at more than $55 million dollars. Frey is already working with U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar and representatives Ilhan Omar and Betty McCollum on a potential bailout package for the city.

However, McCollum described a more realistic picture on the prospect of the Twin Cities being granted a federal bailout, which would require approval from the Republican Senate and the signature of President Trump. In an email to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, she said the chances of a bailout were slim. “To be realistic, the odds of that happening are, at best, very difficult.

Curiously, Frey seemed a lot less concerned about the economic and property damage impacts of the race riots when they were actually happening. Even the Democratic Governor of Minnesota, who proved almost equally inept at preventing mass destruction and controlling the volatile situation, slammed Frey for his refusal to deter the large crowds of criminal rioters, calling the city’s response to the riots an “abject failure.” Frey rebuffed suggestions to deploy the Minnesota National Guard before caving and giving in.

Minnesota Republicans have called upon both Tim Walz and Frey to resign, citing their utter failure to prevent riots that have now caused damages in the tens of millions to everyday Minnesotans and the Twin Cities community.

In a remarkable display of irresponsibility, the liberal Democrats cheering on rioting and property damages aren’t even willing to pay for the damages enacted in their own communities. As it turns out, the buck stops with the American taxpayer, many of whom they’d gladly point to as ones whom they’re protesting.
