Democrats have sat back and done nothing as Antifa anarchists rioted and burned cities nationwide. In the city of Portland, criminals have been rioting for 52 nights straight. The government refused to stop the assault of a courthouse and law enforcement. They then attacked federal forces who are stopping the violence. But the DHS refuses to back down.
Millions of Americans around the country watch as Democrats in major cities do nothing as violence spreads. It’s like we’re watching a bad movie unfold. These highly-paid politicians close their eyes as Antifa, BLM, and other groups try to destroy our country. Democrats have the gall to call them “peaceful protesters.” But everyone else is horrified and disgusted.
After promising to intervene when necessary, President Trump has directed federal authorities to step in and stop the chaos. Of course, Democrats immediately complained, accusing Trump of “sending in stormtroopers.” Men and women sworn to protect the country are being slandered by Democrats too lazy to do their jobs. Even the media joins in with the lies, painting brave officers as monsters hurting “innocent” rioters.
But the head of the Department of Homeland Security has news for the left: they ain’t going anywhere.
What started in cities across America as a response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody in May, has devolved in Portland to what Wolf said are criminal activities that have taken place for 52 nights and counting…
“These individuals are organized with one mission in mind. To burn down or cause extreme damage to the federal courthouse and federal law enforcement officers.”
Wolf said that the deployment of extra federal law enforcement agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is in keeping with federal law that goes back “decades.”
“We are charged with protecting federal facilities across the country,” Wolf said.
“We will not shrink from our duty because of this violence,” Wolf said. [Source: Breitbart]
Just think about it: Democrat governors and mayors are siding with radical anarchists (mostly young punks who live in mommy and daddy’s basement) over federal officers sworn to keep the peace. Democrats do nothing as rioters destroy property and endanger American lives.
Does this look like aftermath of peaceful protesting:
Portland protesters have been rioting for six weeks straight. It will only escalate. The damage will be so exhaustive, it will take years for the city to recover (if it can). Law-abiding citizens will just leave. Those who can’t afford to will watch their city collapse into poverty. All because Democrats did not have the backbone to confront a group of entitled Marxists who only want to destroy our country.
And as the federal government steps in to save lives, the Democrats accuse them of being stormtroopers. That is a gross and insulting accusation and proves that Democrat no longer care about law and order.
If they had their way, every city would be like Portland. Antifa and Black Lives Matter would roam freely, attacking homes, businesses, and people at will. Cops would just sit around, twiddling their thumbs, unable or unwilling to stop it. Our country would become a third-world warzone, where good people are hunted and criminals are rewarded.
That’s what’s happening right now in Portland. It will only get worse, if Democrats are allowed to continue to “lead.”
The only good news is that DHS refuses to bend to the left-wing mob’s pressure. They are fighting to restore calm and order to the city—and cities around the nation. But if Americans continue to support radical, left-wing idiots, there is only so much the Feds can do.
