Happy New Year Portland – Antifa Rioters Firebomb Police, Vandalize Businesses…Again

By Faye Higbee

Happy New Year Portland! On NYE, Antifa rioted and firebombed police, vandalized numerous businesses, and started fires in the street. It appears that 2021 is gearing up to be another year of violence, vandalism, and attacks on police. Antifa is not just an “idea,” as Biden claims, they are a very real and dangerous bunch of domestic terrorists. And they continue to prove it.

A gathering in downtown Portland has devolved into a riot. Participants have thrown multiple firebombs at officers and launched commercial grade fireworks at the Federal Courthouse and Justice Center.

They pillaged a Portland Starbucks, leaving behind smashed windows and debris. They smashed a Chase Bank location (again). They set fire to street lights, and the Federal Courthouse (again). Some Antifa attempted to break into the Justice Center, but were unsuccessful. Molotov Cocktails and commercial grade fireworks were thrown at police, as well as frozen water bottles, rocks, and bricks. Some law enforcement officers were injured, but “no CS gas was deployed.” Portland is too “woke” for its own good.

Antifa rioted in downtown Portland for New Years in a planned & pre-announced night of violence. They smashed up small businesses, started fires & even pushed outnumbered law enforcement back.

“Planned and Pre-announced night of violence.” Happy New Year Portland. Are you having fun yet?

In America’s first riot of 2021, Portland Antifa rang in the New Year with a firework-filled clash with police outside the federal courthouse. The area has cleared now, but this is the scene from shortly before midnight.

Mayor Ted Wheeler and his “woke” city council have created one of the most ineffective police forces in the nation. Congratulations and Happy New Year Portland. In the midst of the rioting and pillaging, police were forced to retreat until reinforcements arrived. Even if they were able to use their weapons, someone would prosecute them instead of the perpetrators of the violence.

Several arrests were made..again. Not that it will do any good, since the DA won’t prosecute them, and normally they are released as soon as they’re booked. Like I said, Happy New Year Portland.
