PORTLAND, OR – Following the day of rallies and nearly declared riots in Portland between terrorist groups and right-wingers, the domestic terrorists were back at it Saturday evening.
Unlike what the local politicians who call themselves leaders want people to believe, gone are the days where the “only” damage being done is to city property and businesses. Antifa and Black Lives Matter are going into Portland neighborhoods and terrorizing residents there.
Portland police blocked the 47th bridge where ANTIFA were trying to cross so they’re now all carpooling to the next location. But not before trampling over several freshly manicured lawns throughout the neighborhood.

We have an interesting new development to Law Enforcement Today’s previously reported evening incidents, where we told you about Antifa members in the streets shining lights into people’s homes yelling:
“Wake up mother f—– wake up!”

The domestic terrorists decided to bring a homemade guillotine into a residential neighborhood, and put a teddy bear in the drop as the (assumed) first victim.
About 250 terrorists were allowed to march through the residential streets of Portland while they made their way to Penumbra Kelly Building, where several public safety offices can be found.

Terrorists blared over loud speakers to residents that they needed to provide shelter for the rioters, and also yelled to them:
“Get in the f***ing streets!”
The woman claimed that they are “protecting” residents, and yelled:
“There are safety in numbers. 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.”
The attacks continued on police during the riots as well, with the now-usual items being thrown at them: rocks, bottles of feces, bricks, etc.
Among those arrested was a woman who calls herself a “youth life skills coach.” See her photo below, but beware: It’s quite scary.
Alice Elizabeth Johnson (she/they), 27, was arrested & charged at the violent #antifa riot overnight in Portland. Johnson works with foster youth as a "life skills coach." They were quickly released without bail. #PortlandMugshots https://t.co/ixCZBCGy9U https://t.co/eMAeBjT8vo pic.twitter.com/2BraoUmNE9

Here’s the report from earlier in the day on Saturday.
During the day on Saturday, multiple rallies were planned for around the much-targeted Justice Center and Terry Schrunk Plaza (federal property) in downtown Portland.
One was simply a “pro-police” rally planned for outside the Justice Center, and another large one was the “No to Marxism in America” rally planned for Terry Schrunk Plaza across the street.
Of course it was expected that it would be met with resistance from the likes of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, and those terroristic groups did not disappoint.

Due to the violence escalating early against the pro-police rally, several groups converged on the Justice Center to support the pro-police group who were originally there to be a part of the anti-Marxism rally, including the Proud Boys, who describe themselves as a “pro-western fraternity.”
The Proud Boys often show up at pro-Trump rallies and act as a sort of volunteer security for supporters.
The media has turned the Proud Boys into a group of “white supremacists” who are categorized as a “general hate” group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, to the point where a former leader of the group sued them for slander. It should be noted that several “black and brown” Proud Boys members arrived in Portland with the group.
Chants of “USA,” “Back the Blue,” “Blue lives matter,” and “A.C.A.B. All Cops Are Brave” rang out from the pro-police side.
On the terroristic side, chants rang out with the traditional A.C.A.B, as in “All Cops Are Bastards,” and a woman singing a song about how cops are murderers, and their children and wives hate them all. “Black Lives Matter” was also shouted several times.
After about two hours of the pro-police and anti-Marxism combined group at a standoff with BLM/Antifa crowd, the violence started and most of the pro-police group retreated, leaving the “big boys” of the anti-Marxism rally to hold the line.
Standing on the line directly behind a group of patriots wielding shields to protect those behind the line, I saw smoke bombs, bottles full of liquid, gallons of juice, canisters spewing smoke and God knows what else, paint, motor oil, eggs, rocks, sticks, and more flying across the street into the group supporting the police and standing for America.
Chemical agents were sprayed from both sides, including pepper spray, CS gas, and bear spray.

One man, a black Bishop in Milwaukee, Oregon, was caught in the fray and took bear spray to the face.
Bishop Jermaine A Williams with the Mission Field Church was at the event in order to try to bring some peace and understanding between the groups.
While he was recovering from the spray and regaining his vision, I had a chance to talk to him.
Bishop Williams said that he was walking around and noticed two women were on the ground after having been injured during a fight between the groups. He stepped in to help one of them up, and that’s when he was hit with the spray.

The bishop told me he is pro-police and also supports the movement to bring equality to colored people. Please notice that he supports racial equality, and did not make mention of support for Black Lives Matter.
“I see both sides, and I don’t choose sides. I see the need for the justice that needs to be brought to light and served. There is legitimate hurt from many on that side. I am black myself, and I have had my family done wrong and suspect is was due to the color of my skin, even by police at one point.
“But we can’t judge those in uniform. I can’t judge all of them for what was done by only a few. Without them, our nation won’t be a nation. We need our police.”
Bishop Williams also commented on the political game many are playing with the rioting and violence occuring:
“I would like to make a call for governors and mayors to speak out and actually go against the violence. Racism is wrong, but this is so wrong and no way to help it.
“The politicians are allowing this because they’re using it as a ballot ploy. They’re ok with the injustice so they can use it for votes.”
Meanwhile, a black speaker named Raeona Coleman, known for her pro-police stance, showed up to speak at the event.
While she did say a few words, it didn’t go how she thought it would.
Within minutes of her taking the megaphone, Coleman was attacked by a white Black Lives Matter activist. With a water bottle filled with urine.
The poor woman was forced to take her shirt off in front of the entire crowd so people could wash it off with water for her.
However, that didn’t stop her from speaking. A bottle full of urine thrown at her getting all over her clothes, face, and eyes, didn’t stop her from speaking out.
She was able to get a photo of the man that threw the urine at her, proving that he was a white man. So a black woman showed up to speak for the police, and a white man tried to silence her by throwing pee on her. Does her black life not matter? Does her black voice not matter?
The loving and tolerant left also attacked a transgender woman by spraying her directly in the eye with chemical agents.
Of course, the media is saying that the “far-right militia” groups present were attacking the “peaceful protesters,” “flashing guns” at them. Never mind the hours of projectiles thrown at the right, and the fact that BOTH groups were head-to-head arguing and throwing punches.
Proud Boys wreaking havoc in Portland today— swinging pipes, brandishing bats, attacking women and assaulting Black Lives Matter activists. This is what happens when we leave extremist and racist violence unchecked. pic.twitter.com/VGO3oBhwQt

Also the media (and crybaby Antifa) were whining that the police stood by and did nothing to intervene. Police were present via speakerphone, warning groups to stop “engaging in criminal activity.”
The Washington Post reported that the pro-police presence was a “far-right event.” This plays directly into what politicians like Jo Ann Hardesty has been putting out to her minion followers, saying that the “far-right, white supremacists” are there to deny “peaceful protesters” of their First Amendment rights.
Portland’s police chief needs to step down.
“100 far-right activists, including Proud Boys and armed militia members, descended on Portland” @PortlandPolice did nothing to intervene. It’s been said they are infiltrated by hate groups. https://t.co/SJ7CfFIvPo

They can’t decide if they want to defund and abolish the police or if they want to be able to run into their waiting arms when the big, bad patriots show up to call them on their nonsensical violence and terrorism of the city.
Friday night, the Portland Police Bureau tweeted about balloons filled with poop and pee that they found near the protest area.
Violence has been increasingly raising when patriots show up to challenge the terrorists. Police have their hands tied behind their backs by politicians and they’re unable to gain back the streets of Portland.
It’s a dirty and literally crappy job, but someone has to do it.
