After 50 days the riots in the city of Portland, Oregon, have resulted in the destruction of buildings, fires, and attacks on people.

The “protesters,” an apparent mix of members of antifa, a Marxist movement considered to be a terrorist group, and members of the Black Lives Matter movement, demolished federal buildings and set fire to the Portland Police Association headquarters building on July 18 the Townhall reported.

The violence went so far as to force federal law enforcement officers to intervene to help Portland police gain control, an action that required tear gas to be thrown at the “anarchists.”

A video by reporter Shelby Talcott shows a group of vandals, predominantly white, busy destroying fences.

Portland Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler has banned local police from cooperating with federal agents in riot control, according to a tweet from journalist Andy Ngo.

Ngo also reported attacks by “protesters” on other people.

National Security Secretary Chad Wolf called the protesters “lawless anarchists” on July 16.

“The city of Portland has been under siege for 47 straight days by a violent mob while local political leaders refuse to restore order to protect their city,” Wolf reproached.

“A federal courthouse is a symbol of justice—to attack it is to attack America. Instead of addressing violent criminals in their communities, local and state leaders are instead focusing on placing blame on law enforcement and requesting fewer officers in their community,” he added.

What is clear is that the destruction caused by the mob is far from being “peaceful protests” as the mass media pretends to portray it, and even more so it does not seem to have a definite limit.

For some analysts, the riots are part of the controversial strategy by the Democrats, in search of a victory for presidential candidate Joe Biden, but the national indignation generated by the demonstrations of anarchy seems to generate a boomerang effect that distances them each time from their objectives.
