Portland Antifa Caught on Camera Making What Appears to Be Smoke Bombs

Published

on

New video has emerged of the Antifa counter protesters at Sunday’s free speech rally in Portland making what appears to be some type of smoke bombs.

The person who took the video, a neutral journalist who has asked to only be identified as “Streets Fire,” told Big League Politics that they shot the video between 1 and 2 p.m. — at least an hour and a half before an unlawful assembly was declared over Antifa assaulting police with projectiles.

“They put something in the bottle then shook it. Then turned into what you see in the video,” Streets Fire told BLP.

We asked the journalist if they stuck around to see what happened with the bottles after they were made and they told us that they got out of there where the footage ends.

Independent journalist Tim Pool, who was in Portland livestreaming, confirmed to Big League that he had seen the anarchists throwing smoke bombs at police.

“I saw someone light what looked like a small tube and throw it towards the police line. It started emitting a thick greenish smoke,” Pool explained.

Pool stated that he did not smell anything, but may have been too far away from the smoke. He also said that everything in the counter protest area had an overpowering smell of vinegar, as the protesters soak their face masks in it. It is an old urban legend that vinegar will help protect you from tear gas — but in my personal experience has always fallen short.

When we asked Pool if he had seen anything that looked like these bottles being thrown he stated that he did not, but “saw them lighting a wick.”

“I didn’t see any smoke bomb bottles but I interviewed someone in my video who said they were throwing bottles at police,” he added.

Free speech activist Irma Hinojosa also confirmed to Big League that she saw smoke bombs being thrown by the anarchists.

As we previously reported, the counter protest against free speech had erupted in violence after police attempted to clear the square of the black bloc anarchists.

“During the course of police action, in response to a significant amount of projectiles being thrown, less lethal munitions, including ‘pepper ball’ and aerial distraction devices (ADD) were used by police,” the Portland Police Department said in a statement on Sunday evening.

One of the speakers at the free speech rally, Tim Treadstone, better known as ‘Baked Alaska’, told Big League that counter protesters were throwing balloons filled with feces and urine, eggs, and bloody tampons.

Following the event, the Portland Police announced that they had confiscated knives, brass knuckles, bricks, chains, an axe, and many other weapons from the anarchists.

A total of 14 people were arrested — at least one of whom was at the free speech rally and was arrested after attempting to stop the anarchists from burning an American flag.

Neocon David Frum: Trump one of the “Fattest Presidents Ever”

These guys are all substance, we’re told.

Published

on

Neoconservative pundit and former Bush administration Iraq War architect David Frum made himself a target of mockery for a personal attack on President Trump’s physical fitness.

Frum claimed on CNN Sunday that “Donald Trump was the oldest president ever, one of the fattest presidents ever, the least physically capable president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a wheelchair.”

The personal attack devolved into hyperbole when Frum claimed Trump “can’t pick up a ball, never mind throw it.

Trump’s latest medical physical revealed him to be overweight, but claims that he’s the fattest President in history are categorically incorrect. William Taft had the highest BMI (body mass index) of any U.S President, famously being rumored for becoming trapped in a White House bathtub. Analysis of various Presidents shows that Trump’s BMI is generally on par with Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and Zachary Taylor.

In any case, it’s probably not the most newsworthy of stories that a 73-year old man who works constantly is overweight. Trump’s medical documents have consistently painted a picture of a President in good health.

Frum tried to revise his own remarks in a tweet after being mocked on the schoolyard bullying, claiming that it was only fair to talk about Trump’s weight when conservative commentators questioned Hillary Clinton’s health in the 2016 election.

But there’s little to no comparison between Trump’s weight and Hillary’s health concerns. The former Secretary of State was often befit with wheezing fits and had to leave campaign events early appearing extremely disoriented during the 2016 campaign.

The deposed class of neoconservative pundits such as Frum fancies themselves “principled” commentators, yet a mere scratch on the surface shows them to be no more shallow than the most vacuous of smug cultural liberals.
