Portland Protesters Are Creating Their Own ‘Autonomous Zone,’ Pitching Tents And Building Barricades

Published

Well, it was only a matter of time before some copycats tried to recreate Seattle’s CHOP Zone, and it’s finally happened. Protesters in the city of Portland have attempted to recreate the “autonomous zone” by setting up tents and attempting to barricade streets, proving once again these people are relentless.

Demonstrators started putting up the tents in the downtown area of Portland’s Lownsdale Square, which is located across the street from the federal Pioneer Courthouse. This is one of the federal properties that the Department of Homeland Security tried to protect by calling on federal officers several weeks ago.

An unofficial Twitter page attributed to a group of anti-capitalist, anti-fascist teens who call themselves the Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front said protesters want to establish the Chinook Land Autonomous Territory, or CLAT, in downtown Portland. The Chinook people include several indigenous groups native to the Pacific Northwest.

“People are needed here ALL night long, especially in the early morning! Get on over rn! Bring some tents,” the Twitter page said, sharing an image of a barricade that read “ACAB,” an acronym meaning “All Cops Are Bastards,” and “Black Trans Lives Matter.”

The Portland Police Department released a statement on Wednesday stating that a “couple hundred demonstrators gathered at Revolution Hall in Southeast Portland and marched all throughout downtown Portland before ending their march at Pioneer Square” on Tuesday evening.

The police also stated that some of the protesters headed toward the Justice Center and by around 9:15 p.m. stood in the middle of the road — always a horrible decision — and blocked traffic. Once they were there it wasn’t long before they started to build barricades along Southwest Main Street and Soutwest Salmon Street at Southwest Third Avenue.

Barricades consisted of “industrial kitchen appliances, road blockades, and flashing traffic signs.” And, of course, some fires were lit too. Because why not?

Around 1 a.m., demonstrators “in an organized effort” left the barricades and walked to the Central Precinct “in an attempt to disrupt officers as they walked in from the end of their shift,” the police statement said. At that time, officers removed some of the barricades at Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Salmon Street. But demonstrators then began returning to the area and “officers disengaged.”

True to form, demonstrators resorted to throwing glass bottles and pointing lasers at police officers, and then set what was left of the barricades on fire. A few minutes later, one demonstrator put the fire out and others started to rebuild the barricade.

There was no gas or crowd control munitions or force used during the incident.

Bloomberg Buys Last-Minute Political Ads On Behalf Of Joe Biden In Texas And Ohio

Published

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who just so happened to run the country’s most expensive failed presidential campaign in history, is now apparently blowing through a wad of cash in a last-minute attempt to buy some political ads on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The ads have been purchased in key states that are known strongholds for Republicans, Ohio and Texas. Via Daily Wire: The last-minute advertising amounts to $15 million – a fraction of what Bloomberg is spending in Florida to support Biden – and represents internal polling suggesting President Donald Trump is vulnerable in the two states, The New York Times reported. “Howard Wolfson, one of Mr. Bloomberg’s closest aides, said the former mayor had recently asked his team to run a round of polls to see whether Mr. Trump had unexpected vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the campaign’s closing weeks. Up to this point, Mr. Bloomberg’s general-election activities have focused on Florida, where he has pledged to spend $100 million supporting Mr. Biden,” the outlet reported. “The Bloomberg team conducted polling in a number of states over the weekend and came away convinced that Texas and Ohio represented its best targets — narrowly divided electoral prizes where the war for television airtime is not already cluttered with heavy advertising on either side. The team presented Mr. Bloomberg with the numbers on Monday morning and he gave the go-ahead.” “We believe that Florida will go down to the wire, and we were looking for additional opportunities to expand the map,” Wolfson told the outlet. “Texas and Ohio present the best opportunities to do that, in our view.” The big focus of the campaign ads being put out by Bloomberg will be the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ads running in Texas will…

Well, it seems that we’re about to hit another round of rioting and looting by the Black Lives Matter movement — don’t worry folks, it’s all just tools to fight against oppression — this time taking place in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. A 27-year-old black man was shot and killed during an altercation with police officers earlier in the day, which is the latest inspiration cited by these angry “protesters” for the justification for their lawlessness. via Fox News: Walter Wallace, who was allegedly holding a knife, was fatally shot while two police officers were responding to a complaint about a man with a weapon in Cobbs Creek, according to the Associated Press. He “advanced toward” the officers, who then fired “several times,” the outlet reported. Wallace was hit in both the shoulder and chest, then taken in a police vehicle to a hospital, where he died. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1320953991170125826 Following Wallace’s death, which was recorded and posted on social media, hundreds of people — some armed with bricks — protested in the 52nd Street commercial district, and the demonstration quickly turned violent. Police cars and dumpsters were set ablaze and NBC10 Philadelphia reported that at least 30 police officers were hurt. A 56-year-old sergeant was hit by a truck and sent to the hospital with a broken leg and other injuries. Some of the stores that were hit with looting included several Rite Aid pharmacies, a restaurant, and some clothing and shoe shops. Two ATM machines have also been reported to have been smashed. A total of 30 people were arrested during the incident. Folks, if Joe Biden is elected president and the left takes over Congress, this scene right here will become common place. How do I know that?
