Portland Rioters Worry Message On BLM Might Be Lost In Translation

What, exactly, is the message when mostly white Leftists are involved with vandalism, graffiti, property damage, assault, and arson, among others? What does it have to do with black lives matter?Just because they have signs (saying f*ck the police) doesn’t mean they really care, seems more about violence for the sake of violence

Portland protesters worry violence is taking away from Black Lives Matter message

Federal law enforcement agents clashed repeatedly with protesters early Friday morning, pushing through the streets to disperse crowds approaching the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse in a running battle of tear gas, fireworks and pepper spray, the surreal atmosphere exacerbated by multiple people playing the “Imperial Death March” from “Star Wars” on portable speakers.

Two months after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked nationwide protests against racial injustice and a week after President Donald Trump sent federal officers toPortland to confront activists, another night of chaos unfolded in this largely liberal, mostly white city where residents have continuously taken to the streets to demand substantive police reform.

It’s cute how USA Today positions the deployment of federal law enforcement, right? Of course, the article itself in that link notes this was due to threats and actual attacks against federal property. Anyhow, the feds didn’t come out Friday till the rioters started attacking the gates and throwing things, including flammables, over the fence. And I wonder if USA Today missed this

“There’s not a lot of things people like us can do. We can vote, but does that really make a difference when the system is so stacked against us?” said Fae Preston, 21, a protester who described herself as a minimum-wage worker. “Government’s purpose is to serve the people. This is showing they are not serving us.”

So government is supposed to allow rioters to destroy federal property and attack federal employees?

For more than an hour on Thursday evening, activist Edreece Phillips, 48, a Black hip-hop artist who’s been protesting for weeks, had been keeping protesters and sightseers off the fence enclosing the federal courthouse. He said he’d talked to federal officials earlier in the day and said they’d agreed that if protesters stayed back, agents would stay inside the courthouse.

“They don’t come out unless we try to get in,” Phillips said. “All that stuff people are doing is making it so that Black voices are being heard less and less and less.”

Well, they attacked, feds came out. And they attacked a black man trying to stop them (looks different than Phillips, whose picture is in the article.)

“A lot of the people who are doing it are not Black. They throw shit and start shit and run away and yell ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and then go home and take off their clothes. But I can’t take off my black,” Phillips said. “And the more damage they do to this building— well, everyone thinks it’s people of color doing all this and it’s not. “

I know that the majority is caused by white Democrats in a city like Portland, but, yes, most people will see all the violence being done in the name of BLM and tune the whole thing out. Anyhow, that’s pretty much all there is regarding the headline.

But, remember, it was the BLM folks yelling “no justice no peace” without really setting the terms of what justice is beyond some nebulous talking points, so, BLM is seeing the results in Democratic Party run cities where hardcore white leftists (and some blacks and Latinos) run wild.

    So, for the most part, the Black Lives Matter protesters aren’t black, but we already knew that. For the most part, they are spoiled white kids who have yet to grow up and while most don’t fit the humorous stereotype of living in their parents’ basements, they are also, for the most part, not employed in ‘grown up’ jobs; they work at Starbucks or McDonald’s or other minimum wage places, because they have yet to prove themselves skillful enough and productive enough to earn more.

    It’s just so unfair that they aren’t all tech millionaires!

    I have to wonder how many of the white guys in these marches are only there to find white girls who are down to f(ornicate).

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Mr. Dana speculates on the status of the protesters, further disparaging service workers and minimum wage workers, ignoring that these are the jobs available in the economy we’ve created.

    In what jobs have Ivanka, Jr., Jared, Melania and Eric proved themselves skilled and productive? Life seems easier if you’re born rich. Or marry “well”.

    Why do so many whites support BLM he wonders, speculating that white boys are there to bang the white girls who are there for Black men. How connie.

    Even working class whites have become disenchanted with the economy, hence the “election” of Donald Trump who lied/promised about bringing back good manufacturing jobs and returning whites to their “rightful place” at the head of America’s table. Speeches and promises will not alleviate the damaging and growing inequalities in our system, only thoughtful policy changes will. You’ve read this before: labor, tax, trade, patent, monetary, fiscal, healthcare, infrastructure, education, justice, policing, worker safety, environmental and housing policies all benefit the wealthy at the expense of the poor and working classes. The protests you see in our cities is not just about police killing Black men and women.

      Service workers? I thought those were hookers. And flipping burgers or brewing coffee are bottom level jobs.

      If that’s the best you can find, you aren’t looking.

      As one of the Trump brothers noted, “We’re probably the only billionaire’s sons that can operate a D3 bulldozer”. And what, exactly can you do, Jeffery?

      Actually, it’s probably true,. I know a couple of women who hung out at the anti-war protests just to get laid.

      And I doubt that many whites ever supported these riots.

      It’s certainly decreased over the last 2 months.

      No, they’re about staging a Commie revolution. The real working classes are behind Trump, who has brought back good manufacturing jobs.

      Jeffery’s just mad because the Demos have stuck him with trying to sell Gropin’ Joe.

    We should remind Mssrs. Kye and Dana that their own pictures are on display, LOL.

    We assume they picked these pictures as favorable, but perhaps they intended irony.

  5. Jl says:

    “You’ve read this before…all benefit the wealthy at the expense of the poor…”. And we’ve read before where you fail to offer any evidence of such an assertion. And we just read it one more time…

    • Kye says:

      And one more time the brainwashed douche will fail to offer any valid evidence of said claims. Perhaps because they are ambiguous assertions which could be made about anything or anyone. Or maybe because all the wealth he hates so much is now in the hands of the tech giants, media, celebrities and business kings who are now all screamin’ leftists.

      Hell, just yesterday he defended a multi million dollar business getting millions in government loans while asserting a small business shouldn’t get any strictly on the basis of who the small business votes for. That will become the norm if the left wins the election. Benefits by association not merit. Same with jobs, school admittance and more.

      The left, like Stalin with the Kulaks, Hitler with the Jews and Xi with the uyghers needs to identify some group as sub human for labor camps and extermination. We saw the beginning when Adolf Hillary called us “deplorables” then again when our blue state leaders named us “non-essential”. That was Elwood’s favorite because he got to degrade me and my wife as non-essentials. Made him feel like a big man until we got nearly a million dollars in fed loans then suddenly we were rich and seemed “essential” enough not to get the loans in his view. See how it works with leftists? Agree with them or get fuked. Simple minds, simple rules, deadly results.

      Trump 2020 Or we will be in camps if we’re the lucky ones.
