Antifa take over streets and direct traffic and beat cars while cops admit they watched it all happen.

Do the police really let Antifa take control of the streets like this? I drive a Toyota Hylux and would run just these faggots over, their being on the road is illegal.

In democrat party controlled cities, yes. The democrat party is essentially partnered with Antifa.

Portland's political class is a joke. Portland is an embarrassment. The mayor is basically one of antifa.

So, (P)ANTIFA has been labelled a terrorist organization by the federal government. Yet the police allow them to take over streets and conduct "search and destroy missions" in public?

The federal police allow a listed terrorist organization to conduct missions on US soil?

richk449's protestations aside, the Democratic party is turning into a Maoist authoritarian party that does not permit differing opinions.

Yep. Every day, at every intersection in America, that is how it goes.

Or, you know, occasionally some nut jobs do stupid stuff. I am pretty surprised that the police let them get away with that. They shouldn't.

If I were a cop in any city of notable size, I'd try to find work in a much smaller town. Cities aren't worth the risk of dying on duty, being assassinated or convicted of murder.

When was the last time you were in Portland? This is an everyday occurance. Just because NPR does not carry it, does not mean it isn't happening.

This happened across the river in Vancouver.

I'm very grateful I wasn't in a position to move a number of years back as I was giving serious consideration to the Northwest. I'm not sure which is worse, Oregon or Hawaii. Given the recent exposure of that which represents Hawaii, there seems to be no chance there. Maybe Oregon isn't completely lost.

I'm afraid it is. The Portland, Salem, and Eugene metro areas are a bare majority of the State's population. Eastern and rural Oregon is still inhabited by a more self sufficient, conservative population, but are completely ignored by the regressive liberals in the Willamette Valley. Portland and Eugene's mayors are batshit krazy leftists that would be at home in Beijing or Berkeley.

Portland, the swollen anal gland of the Pacific Northwest. I have lived there (well right across the river).

If that is an every day occurrence in Portland, I don't know why you complain about California so much. You ought to move down here to get away from the crazies.

Portland Mayor defends police inaction.

Reasonably so...
“At any given moment in this city, the police are criticized for being heavy-handed and intervening too quickly, or they’re being criticized for being standoffish and not intervening quickly enough.”

Police have been handicapped, and quite likely might have been killed or severely injured if they intervened.

And in Portland, it is the mayors fault. He does look and seemingly act like something I'd expect to be elected in Portland.

“motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”

Yeah, sure. Not that I was planning a visit, but now I'm definitely avoiding the place.

We need more Reagan.

Zero Hedge isn't a trust worthy source of news. Not even close to it.
