Portland Police rescue pig set to be slaughtered by rioters: ‘They were trying to send a message to cops’


PORTLAND OR –In the ever-evolving world of left-wing anarchy which runs rampant in the City of Portland, we learn of an ever stranger true story. 

Apparently, people who had planned to protest or riot, not sure which, decided they would utilize a live animal to display their level of discontent with civilized laws. 

In order to do so, they had planned on beheading a pig (which symbolizes police, according to them) in a public setting.  However, before being able to go through with it, the pig got away and police located and saved it.

Nothing says love and peace like beheading a live animal in a public setting.  These anarchists have successfully pulled off this type of stunt before when they placed a bloody severed pig’s head, wearing a police hat, on an American flag which they set on fire.

The Post Millennial reporter Andy Ngo, tweeted:

 “Antifa demonstrators placed a decapitated pig’s head on an American flag outside the Justice Center in downtown Portland before putting a police hat on it and setting the whole thing on fire.”

Ngo, reported about the incident saying, “in the early weeks of the riots, a pig was found abandoned near downtown Portland in the middle of the night.  Police rescued the animal.  It is believed a protester was going to kill the pig as an act of anti-police protest but abandoned it last minute.” 

While we may never know if this pig was going to be sacrificed for the hatred of police, there are some that believe that is in fact what was set to happen. 

Mary McDonald-Lewis describes herself in her account of what happened via Facebook as an “animal rights activist and former vice president of Last Chance for Animals”.  She led Miss Betty Pigg’s (the pig found) rescue over the course of several hours.

Here’s the full story of Miss Betty Pigg, as told by Mary McDonald-Lewis, animal rights activist and former vice…

“Last night, around midnight, I was called in to help with a 300 pound pig who had been abandoned in the middle of a protest in downtown Portland.  Someone had brought the pig there to sacrifice it to end all police brutality.” 

McDonald-Lewis stated:

“Someone had brought the pig there to sacrifice it to end all police brutality.”

She believed the pig “was going to be slaughtered so its head could be used in the protest.” 

In this case, thankfully someone thought better of killing an innocent animal for no reason and let it go.  Portland Police officers were flagged down by McDonald-Lewis who explained the predicament and asked them for help. 

McDonald-Lewis approached the officer and said:

“I’m just going to lean on your window a little bit, I said to them.  It’s really cold out here.  Two baffled cops looked back and nodded.  So, uh, I know this sounds strange, but right over that stone wall?  Is a 300 pound pig.” 

The officers gladly offered assistance, and worked diligently to wrangle the pig from where she was lying, but realized they needed a large vehicle to transport her.  Ofc. Pelster left to pick up a van in order to transport the pig from the scene.

When he arrived back, officers, protestors, and even a couple of firefighters all joined together to get the pig into the van. 

McDonald-Lewis said:

“Officer Brian Pelster, who along with his wife has his own small sanctuary, returned with the van and led the expedition to get Miss Pigg from where she snoozed in her planter bed into the van.” 

This group of people joined together in a time of turmoil and unrest to save an animal.  The pig was transported a large farm in which she can live out the rest of her days in peace, without fear of being sacrificed by Antifa.  

One of the officer’s involved, Brian Pelster, commented on his private Facebook page that the group was “SAV’N LIVES…ONE HOG AT A TIME!!!” 

Portland Police Bureau had tweeted a picture of the pig that night hoping to reunite her with the rightful owners.  For some reason, that tweet has since been removed off of their twitter feed. 

In the meantime, you’ve got a member of Biden’s campaign staff embracing that narrative as well.

Sara Pearl, a supervising video producer for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign mocked cops recently as worse than pigs and calls for defunding the police.

Back in June, Pearl tweeted a meme that urged people to stop calling police “pigs”.

She continued with:

 “Pigs are highly intelligent and empathetic animals who would never racially profile you.” 

According to FoxNews, Pearl also retweeted a users comment on her post, which said:

“Pigs are sweet, intelligent, and compassionate. Police officers are monsters who don’t deserve to be called pigs.”

In another tweet, Pearl simply wrote, “#DefundPolice” and then again a few days later said that Buffalo’s police department should be “defunded immediately.”

Back in 2016, after several Dallas police officers were killed by a sniper who, “wanted to kill white people,” Pearl went after the National Rifle Association for tweeting its condolences in the case, but not for any shootings prior to that.

She said:

“Of course they respond to the officers, but not to the previous shootings.”

According to Breitbart, Pearl joined the Biden campaign on July 1st and she conveniently deleted her anti-police tweets after FoxNews reached out to her for comment. Neither she or the Biden campaign have responded to FoxNews for comments.  Prior to starting with the Biden campaign, Pearl worked with the Bernie Sanders campaign.

Pearl has also tweeted at President Trump saying that comparing the president to a pig was actually an insult to pigs.

Conservatives are surprised that the Biden team has yet to comment on Pearl and her anti-police tweets. On Friday, the Trump campaign released a statement saying:

“Now Biden employs a staffer who uses the most vile, inflammatory, and incendiary language to target the brave men and women who risk their own lives to keep us safe.”

Bob Paduchik, a Trump campaign advisor added:

“How can Joe Biden look in the faces of grieving law enforcement families whose loved ones died in the line of duty? Never in history has a major party campaign so angrily fanned the flames of hatred against our nations heroes.”

In another comment, Richard Grenell, Trump’s former director of national intelligence said:

“Joe Biden can’t stand up to his supporters or staff who are calling to ‘Defund the Police’. Scary!”

Grenell added:

“The Biden campaign didn’t respond when given the chance. Why wouldn’t the Biden campaign immediately say ‘of course we don’t support this!??!”

According to FoxNews, Pearl’s comments came as the Trump campaign has portrayed Biden as weak on policing amid a nationwide movement to “Defund the Police.” Earlier this week, a major law enforcement group endorsed President Trump’s re-election.

On July 16th, in response to the criticism from the Trump campaign, Democratic National Committee communications director, Xochitl Hinojosa, said on Bill Hemmer Reports:

“Biden does not support defunding the police.”

In contrast, Biden himself said in a recent interview that some funding should absolutely be redirected from police budgets.

In that interview he also stated:

“Police forces don’t need surplus military equipment because it makes them look like ‘the enemy’ in communities.”

Again, in June, Biden attended a high-roller fundraiser headlined by musician John Legend, who has openly promised that he’ll try and push the former vice president toward totally defunding the police and adopting other far-left positions.

On July 15th, the Trump campaign received the endorsement of the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO), which has since praised his “steadfast and very public support” for law enforcement. NAPO did not endorse a candidate in the 2016 election, but endorsed former President Barack Obama and then Vice President Bide in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections.

In a closing comment, when asked how the NAPO endorsement of Trump would impact Biden’s campaign, Hinojosa said:

“I think right now, Joe Biden is making sure that he is someone who is talking directly to Americans about how to keep them safe and making sure we are rebuilding this trust.”

This is not the first time Biden staffers have supported the anti-police movement. Back in May, Law Enforcement Today reported that Biden staffers were donating funds to pay rioters bail.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – On one hand, you’ve got President Trump who says he’ll designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization.

Then you’ve got his likely November opponent, Joe Biden, who has campaign staff advertising the fact that they are making donations to a group which is paying bail fees for those arrested in Minneapolis.

It is safe to say that some of those arrested are members of this domestic terror group.

According to Reuters, at least 13 members of Biden’s campaign staff posted on Twitter over the weekend that they had made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a group that opposes the imposition of cash bail, or requiring people to pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment.

This particular group pays bail fees in Minneapolis.

In a statement to Reuters, Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates noted that Biden opposes cash bail and says it is the “modern day debtors prison.”

However Biden’s camp refused to answer questions about whether or not the donations were coordinated with Biden’s campaign.

This would seem to indicate that his camp is trying to distance itself from what have been extremely violent protests, which have resulted in hundreds of millions of property damage, as well as leaving hundreds of police officers injured nationwide.

Bates did state that the former vice-president had commented that while the “protesters” have the right to be angry, more violence will not solve the problems of alleged unequal justice.

On Saturday, President Trump’s campaign called it “disturbing” that members of Biden’s team “would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and destroying what good people spent their lives building,” in an email about a story in Reuters that called on Biden to condemn the riots.

Fox News noted that in a statement on Saturday, Biden referred to the riots taking place throughout the country as an “utterly American response,” saying that such actions were “right and necessary” due to how Floyd died while in police custody.

Biden did hedge a bit on the violence and looting saying:

“Protesting such brutality is right and necessary. It is an utterly American response. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not.”

President Trump, meanwhile, has called the protesters “thugs,” and on Saturday noted that states and cities needed to get “much tougher” on anti-police protests, or the federal government would step in and use the military to make arrests.

The president also expressed sympathy over the Floyd incident, who died last Monday after being pinned to the ground by a police officer after he was arrested by kneeling on his neck.

During the incident, which was captured on video, the police officer maintained this position for over eight minutes while Floyd complained, “I can’t breathe.” Three other officers on scene did nothing to interfere.

The video went viral, and served as the catalyst for increasingly violent protests, which began in Minneapolis, but which have spread nationwide to virtually every major American city.

In Minneapolis, Gov. Tim Walz said on Saturday that a majority of those arrested in Minnesota were not residents of the state but were out-of-state agitators. It is unknown how many arrests have been made since the onset of the protests.

Aside from Walz, the mayor of Minneapolis and other state officials have agreed with Walz’s assessment. However, citing jail logs, a local Fox affiliate disputed that, saying most have Minnesota addresses.

One of Biden’s campaign staffers, Colleen May, who identified herself as a campaign organizer for Biden in South Carolina, Wisconsin and Florida said in a Twitter post,” It is up to everyone to fight injustice.” She included an image of her receipt for donating $50 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.
