Across the country in Portland, on the same night that a mob of protesters broke into the Capitol building, a mob of ANTIFA protesters smashed the windows of businesses and tried to break into a courthouse. As Andy NGO notes, it’s their 3rd riot since New Year’s Eve.
Overnight on 6 Jan., #antifa rioted again in Portland. They first tried to break into the Multnomah County Courthouse. After that, they marched around downtown, smashing businesses one-by-one.
Police made no arrests. This is the 3rd antifa riot since NYE. https://t.co/4z0zmWtyV7 pic.twitter.com/ZTW4kV4Dj1

One mob of protesters is being called insurrectionists, nearly universally condemned, losing jobs and facing long prison sentences. The other mob of protesters in Portland is being given a free pass.
This is incredibly hypocritical and is not a sustainable situation, yet Democrats have been encouraging, supporting, and covering for these rioters all year long. It’s great to see liberals upset about rioting today, but that does still apply when #Blacklivesmatter and ANTIFA do it? Apparently not. Do you want to see the world we live in summed up in two tweets?
MSNBC reporter says “I want to be clear on how I characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not generally speaking unruly."
As a building burns in the background…

“TRUMP INCITES MOB” is the headline of this morning’s New York Times.
Any journalist who sugar coats their language or normalizes what has happened today isn’t doing their job.
Our job is to bear witness & tell the truth: Trump is attempting a coup, and inciting violence

The same guy claiming a protest where they set buildings on fire wasn’t unruly is now telling people not to sugar coat their language. Liberals may believe they can live in that world, but they can’t. Either we’re going to have mobs of protesters from across the ideological spectrum running wild or we’re not going to have mobs of protesters running wild.
As someone who believes in law and order and doesn’t want to see this country turn into another stupid, violent, Third World pesthole where things are decided by who can bring the most gang members to a fight, I believe that we need to restore the rule of law. That’s actually not difficult to do. It just takes the political will to do it. Support our police, let them do their jobs, and punish the people breaking the law and these riots will end in a hurry.
