Waiting on the Cowardly Dante!!
Time for mass arrests, and a year incarceration for rioters, and those that assault the uninvolved citizens....but, then again, it is Portland, a liberal run city!

For the fourth straight night, anti-Trump protesters took to the streets of downtown Portland, and for the second straight night the protest turned into a melee.

The protest began as a peaceful rally at City Hall at 5 p.m. before protesters split into what appeared to be three groups at around 7 p.m. There were at least 1,000 protesters and police said there were reports of vandalism and assault. Several people have been arrested.

One group, organized by Portland's Resistance, stayed at the rally in City Hall. Despite pleas from police earlier in the day, some protesters began marching on Southwest 4th Avenue, only to be stopped by police, who advised the crowd to march on a facilitated northbound route.

A second group followed police orders and began marching north. Police said deviating from the route was not permitted.

"We will facilitate a march as long as it's on the streets we ask them to stay on," said Sgt. Pete Simpson of Portland police.

The hundreds of protesters that headed north on Southwest 4th Avenue attempted to cross the Burnside Bridge, only to be stopped by police before heading back to downtown and eventually joining up again at around 9 p.m. with the third group that stayed in a standoff with police on Southwest 4th Avenue.

Over the next hour, flash bangs and tear gas were used to disperse protesters, some of whom were throwing burning projectiles at police, on Southwest 4th Avenue. Police advised the crowd that their gathering was considered an unlawful assembly and they were subject to arrest. Still, the crowd continued to march elsewhere through downtown.

“It’s been a very aggressive crowd toward the officers," Simpson said.

Separate from the downtown area, a fourth group emerged at around 8:45 p.m. on the eastside and attempted to cross the Hawthorne Bridge westbound, only to be stopped by police. At that time, Interstate 5 was closed between the Marquam and Fremont bridges and Interstate 84 was closed at the junction with I-5.

The City Hall rally was organized by Portland’s Resistance. Leader Greg McKelvey said the group would not march.

“This group is going to remain peaceful and what we have tonight is beautiful," McKelvey said. "My group will hold this forum and just try to build community…and get people to mobilize our platform.”

During the rally, McKelvey called on Portland to acknowledge and rectify its racist past, and asked the crowd of supporters to be a model for the rest of the country.

"We have to make sure Portland can be a progressive model for the rest of the country," he said.

The American people soundly rejected the progressive model last Tuesday.

Some may not be aware of the fact that EVERY protestor who is carrying a sign inciting any call to violence against Trump is now on the DHS/CIA/FBI/LEA's electronic face recognition Rolodex.
Same as anyone who is photographed destroying property and or assaulting anyone.
There are dozens of undercover LEO taking 'in your face' photos.
Businessmen can now apply for a court order to screen prospective employees using the new technology.
Once your face is on the BIG ROLODEX IN THE SKY you can kiss any chance of ever getting a decent job goodbye.
Isn't modern technology a wonderful thing?

I need to go find some protest videos. If anyone has a good link let me know. It's like porn for me.

Let some cop put a handcuff on a thug and Obama is on the TV saying the cop acted stupidly. Let these anarchists riot, burn and loot and he keeps quiet.

January 20 can't come soon enough.

Liberals are violet, anti-American, fucking thugs. Every time I see these protest videos, and the Liberals whining on MSNBC and CNN, it just makes me realize I chose wisely with Trump.

One solution, create the state of Jefferson, leave Eugene, Bend, and Portland to their own demise. As I understand it the culture of eastern and southern Oregon are exact opposites of one another. The same can be said of northern Nevada and Northern California.

the progressive model... they're living the dream, they've reached the pinnacle of all their hopes and ambitions, achieving every goal they've ever set in their lives -- they're rioting.

The facebook,twitter,etc. generation don't think about cell cameras when acting stupid. Or didn't you notice?

I didn't vote for Trump (I voted Johnson)...but what exactly are they protesting? Trump was the presidency fair and square. Protests are for injustices (like let's say there was extreme voter fraud and Trump stole the election)--not for not getting your way.

In a democracy sometimes you get your way-sometimes you don't. If one political party dominated everything-we wouldn't be a democracy for very long.
