Hundreds of American took to the streets to defend their city in Portland, USA yesterday. This was after months of violent clashes between the Police and the far left anarchists Antifa and Marxist BLM. The destruction caused by far left is said to total in the hundreds of millions of pounds.
The media for months have been labelling these mobs of anarchists and rioters as peaceful protests. During that time, many police officers have been left critically injured, suffering from PTSD, and some left blind due to powerful commercial lasers being shone in their eyes by far-left groups. Yet, the media continue to call them peaceful.
This morning many British newspapers were labelling those who have retaliated against the far left anarchists and rioters as far right extremists. Reality is many of the people that clashed are general folk who have had enough of the destruction in their city from the far left over the last few months.
In a statement, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) said: “On Saturday, August 22, 2020, several different groups gathered in Downtown Portland around noon.
“Over the course of the next two hours, the groups remained in the streets. Individuals yelled at each other, and there were some physical interactions which quickly resolved themselves.
“Some members from both groups threw projectiles and deployed aerosols like pepper and bear spray at each other. At times, fireworks were thrown, and smoke canisters were deployed.
“Each skirmish appeared to involve willing participants, and the events were not enduring in time, so officers were not deployed to intervene.”
Reporters are still saying these protests are over George Floyd’s death, but this isn’t the case anymore. These protesters for the last couple of weeks have now switched their attention on attacking neighbourhoods, innocent people who are living in quiet streets, in Portland. The media will not report on this because it goes against their narrative of the left being peaceful and anyone who retaliates as far-right extremists.
A piece in the Express newspaper today said: “In July President Trump caused controversy by deploying federal officers to Portland against the wishes of the local mayor.”

Trump deployed the federal officers to help, so the Police inside the building were protected after Antifa and tried to set fire to the federal building with police officers trapped in it (classed as attempted murder) the media won’t report this. What’re your thoughts? Have your say below.
