Antifa violence in Portland reaches a new level — liberal mayor remains silent

Nearly 100 Antifa protestors set fire to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday while people were still inside the building.

Protestors first marked the location with vulgar graffiti and the claim, “This is indigenous land.” Some members of the group then started a fire, with protestors chanting, “Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground.”

Andy Ngo, editor at large at The Post Millennial, noted an antifa agitator gave the Black Lives Matter fist salute while the crowd cheered at the ICE building catching fire. “Officers were trapped inside when antifa set the building on fire,” he claimed.

The fire was eventually put out while police remained on high alert around the building. “The fire has been out for awhile now, a large hole into the lobby remains. DHS officers watch from the roof,” Landis reported.

Last summer, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) declared that violence of this type amounts to attempted murder, saying at the time:

When you commit arson with an accelerant, in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people that you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating. You are attempting to commit murder.

Wheeler has yet to condemn the attack. The Portland Police Bureau did not mention Saturday’s violence and no arrests have been reported.

Protests and riots have occurred repeatedly in Portland in recent months. In March, violence took place at the U.S. Courthouse in Portland, which was also set ablaze.

When they finish with Portland, do something about Chicago. Not related to antifa or BLM, but it is a problem that needs fixed.

With that mindset and statement you are as guilty as they are. Arson is arson, and it is premeditated attempted murder. Every Antifa, BLM or anyone else who loots destructs etc should be locked up and charged. Affiliation of such marxist anti American groups are guilty whether they participate or not. Breaking the law does not change. Any government official in charge who stands by is guilty for allowing it

I agree. They aren’t doing anything but they are actively searching and arresting people from the riot at the Capitol on Jan 6th

What in the world is wrong with the Mayor of Portland? Is he just going to stand silent while his city burns. Why isn’t Antifa being arrested?

That’s my question? Why haven’t there been any arrests for attempted murder. The cops need to surround them as they are setting the fires and arrest them on the spot. Use tasers, or whatever is needed to mow them down and cuff them. This will NEVER stop until the law stops them.

I don’t go to Portland as it is not a safe place to travel too. Those people are crazy, so are the mayor and his city council. The DA will not prosecute as the police are thrown under the bus by this stupid mayor and the Oregon Governor. I hope the whole of downtown business leaves and never comes back. These small towns will not put up with this kind of behavior. We own guns and will protect our business. Their is lots of land to hide a body for the coyote’s and other critters to eat on.

It is time to drop the pretense of tolerance and drop the hammer of justice on their liberal BUTTS! No rubber bullets to be used. When the smoke clears, the liberal government leaders need to be eliminated. The republic has no room for anarchy.

The people of Portland may have to take the law into their own hands, since the gutless mayor has pretty much emasculated the police from being able go do their jobs. We know biden and the democrats will do nothing to help curb domestic terrorism caused by the b l m and antifa.

I guess this new administration is ok with domestic terrorists because these people are nothing else but terrorists,when is someone with balls going to step up and put an end to these animals,they’ll continue until someone does something to stop them

Afraid to go to Portland? You shouldn’t because all you have to do is understand the urgency of people. It’s irrelevant by Antifa or BLM or whom ever! They still are the people that no one wants to listen to them!

When Donald Trump was President he could have declared ANTIFA and BLM as dangerous terrorist organizations dedicated to the violent overthrow of the United States government, federalized the national guard, incarcerated and prosecuted the leaders and members of their organizations, and restored order making it clear that they would not be tolerated. They actually took sovereign control over areas of Seattle Washington for awhile. He had that power but as in so many other cases he failed to use it. “…to insure domestic tranquility…” are words right out of the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States he swore to uphold. As in so many other cases the question I have to ask is why did he fail to act swiftly and effectively. In fact he didn’t act at all. Why Not? Why Not? Why Not? If not you then who? If not then then when?

These cowards should all be identified then tried and convicted of arson and attempted murder. That is what would happen to me if I did something similar. tired of these punks and wish one would confront me so I could “stand my ground”!!

Pretty soon Oregon will be a single city. Idaho will be absorbing most of the rest of the state. In the meantime, surround Portland with barbed wire, give residents who are law abiding time to get out, then let the antifa and BLM maggots burn themselves to hell.

It is appalling how quiet the current administration is over these riots when Trump was in office the Democrats had plenty to say!

Question? Is the Democrat Party behind and supporting ANTIFA and the RIOTS? Why aren’t they making any noise
and taking action against these obviously illegal activities?

Where are the DEMOCRATS?

What is wrong with the people in these states that they are allowing their cities to be terrorized, why haven’t they done whatever it takes to get the Mayor & or Governor to do something or out of office. Demand they call in the National Guard & stop this madness unless you want this to continue!!??!!??

What is SO VERY ironic is Antifa stands for anti-fascist. And the methods they are using to “protest” (read riot, burn, destroy, maim) is the very thing that the German Nazis did – so both Antifa and BLM are Marxist fascists (domestic terrorists). I’m locked and loaded, bring it on!

If the police are dumb enough to stand there and let a bunch of half wits burn down a building then let the whole City go up in flames. I reckon after a while they will come out of their stupidity and shot the bums down.

It is time for consequences for these terrorists to be held accountable for their despicable actions . We certainly cant count on the Biden administration to take a stand on this . They can’t even handle the border crisis . We need to have the states and the military to stand up to these people. I am tired of seeing the destruction and violence that is occurring . What they did with ice headquarters is a criminal act with attempted murder. They need to be arrested . Now is the time !
