One of the principal themes of the GOP Convention is bringing back law and order to the American streets, and virtually no other city demonstrates this need quite to the degree that Portland does.
Understandably, it might be a bit unbelievable to claim that Portland is one of the worst cities, considering that virtually all Democrat-run urban cities, from Baltimore to New York to Chicago to Los Angeles, have been totally overtaken by violence in the past several months. While ultra-leftist governors demanded that churches close, rioters and criminals were free to roam the streets, enjoying an effective “Black Friday” experience every single night.
Oh, and rioters can destroy every other area of Chicago aside from liberal Lightfoot’s neighborhood. “Leader” Lightfoot proclaimed she had a right to public safety (and other Chicago residents don’t?) and followed through on her threat to arrest six different rioters for attempting to “protest” on her streets. The double standards couldn’t be clearer, and they also couldn’t be any more unoriginal.
After all, most communist dictatorships tend to pull out all the stops when it comes to their own self-protection, but the remainder of the nation can be thrown to the wolves for all they care.
However, the reason that Portland appears to be one of the absolutely worst examples is because it embodies what the United States would transform into under the domain of Harris, Pelosi, Clinton, and their complicit stooges, otherwise known as the Democrats who won’t stand up to them and their very own presidential candidate. Portland is also a special case because the rioters are especially checked out from reality; while many “riots” have really been after hours shopping experiences for the looters, the protestors in Portland have an even darker purpose, and it’s one that won’t be satisfied as easily as freely obtained Chanel purses or Tiffany jewelry would be.
Just when it seems that the criminals in Portland cannot go any lower, as demonstrated by their attempt to trap police officers inside while setting a building on fire, which led even the Portland mayor to proclaim, “you are attempting to commit murder.” Thus, it is clear that Portland protestors are not only comfortable with killing police officers slowly and painfully, but they have also indicated zero remorse for these actions.
At least he called the heinous behavior out for what it really was; unfortunately, however, since multiple charges against the violent rioters were dropped, the criminals and rabid anti-American leftists were clearly emboldened to commit further horrific actions and make completely unbelievable demands.
This past weekend, the rioters added some new props to their standard anti-America propaganda, and the most memorable prop was the enormous guillotine. Stained with blood, the guillotine was wheeled around by the protestors, representing an ominous foretelling of where more than one rioter’s mind is at.
Predictably, the guillotine was rolled up to a police precinct, and rioters did not exactly demonstrate a willingness to compromise, or for that matter, a willingness to discuss anything at all. The only thing on the rioters’ minds, apparently, was their deep yearning for the imminent death of all officers.
After all, they did have a charming little rhyme, which can be witnessed in this video, proclaiming, “every city, every town, burn the f***ing precinct down!”
Oh, and the protestors burned a large teddy bear and multiple American flags outside of the police precincts. If that’s their way of trying to open real dialogue, as the fake news media claims, they sure use interesting tactics.
A riot had to be eventually declared for police to actually do their jobs, the few police that opt to still work in Portland out of necessity, that is. And, due to the predictable selfishness of the rioters
“At 11:45p.m., officers began to push the crowd to the west. Rocks, bottles, and other hard objects were thrown at officers. One lieutenant was struck in back of head with a glass bottle. His helmet prevented him from being injured. A Portland Fire and Rescue Medic embedded with one of the squads was hit in the shin with a large rock. He suffered a minor laceration to the leg …
“Between 45 and 50 officers had to be pulled from precincts to assist in the protest response. For most of the duration of this event, there were between 120 and 140 calls holding in the City of Portland. Calls included shots fired, assaults, alarms, threats, and suspicious circumstances.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Oh, and in perhaps the most unbelievable event of all, the rioters are demanding “refuge” from Portland residents for “protecting them” (yes, they clearly ignored the 120 to 140 calls that received insufficient police help due to the rioters monopolizing a huge percentage of the force.
“Get in the f***ing streets,” another man screamed.
“There are safety in numbers,” the woman on the bullhorn yelled. “We protect you every night by being out here. Please come and protect us. Make sure you are offering us refuge. We are tired and yet we are still out here. We are simply asking for one night, one hour.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Well, that’s always pleasant to wake up to.
If that’s someone’s dream for a future America, vote Biden. For those who have higher aspirations, there is literally no other option but Trump.
The future of America as we know it is on the line.
