Portland LEOs are "encountering unspeakable violence"?

I would question the legality of this particular action.  Converting Local/State LEO who have jurisdiction on a specific area to Federal control for the sole purpose of allowing the DoJ to bring a completely different set of charges against protesters just seems wrong.

If I were the governor, I would be firing the head of the OSP who took that particular action.

It's entirely legal and is one more reason to reduce the Executive Branch's power if we still have a democracy in 2021.

I really, really want to have all cops do one season of dungeness fishing, in the winter, in the storms and freezing ass cold with their snot freezing on their faces.  They could just fill bait jars, none of the stuff that requires skill.  And no cheating by overfilling the jars so the boat runs out and has to go back in (yeah, that's a thing ;( ).

Hopefully they won't have to pass by  the wreckage of boats that have gone down with loss of life (yeah, that's a thing, too***).   Only because I don't want anyone else to die.   That doesn't include injuries like getting one's arm caught in the bite of the line and nearly losing their arm, or the kid who did lose his leg, torn off..never mind.  That happened in port, and he was carried up the ramp in a wheel barrow with his severed leg on top of him.  It was faster than waiting for the EMTs.

***My husband was crabbing out of Coos Bay some years ago, two boats went down in a week, the second one going out to retrieve the gear from the first.  A couple of months later, another boat went down.  I didn't think it was unreasonable at all when he said "fark this".

Minor correction to TFA:

About 50 Portland, Oregon, police officers will be deputized as federal marshals ahead of Saturday's Proud Boys rally, enabling federal prosecutors to potentially bring throw out any federal charges upon those arrested.

THIS.  The feds are doing this so that when they want to disappear protesters, they can hve th cops do it.  Or whenthe cops arrest protesters for fighting back against these racist f*cks, they can slap them with federal charges.

These "militias" are nothing more or less than the modern version of the SA, and if Trump wins will become the SS.

powhound: Why has Portland turned into a battleground?


This is only my understanding, but not only is Portland one of the whitest urban areas in the country, basically Oregon has been hotbed of racist nutjobs. The KKK has been operating there since the beginning of the last century. And when I say like a hotbed, I'm not just talking about rural assholes, but the entire civil power structure has a deep, deep undercurrent of racism. A lot has changed in the city since the 90s, but yeah...Portland has problems.

Gavin McInnes imagines himself as a modern day Hitler. The Proud Boys were his attempt at creating his own SS, with patriot prayer associating with them playing the role of the SA.

You can skip the overtime voluntarily and not be a part of it at all. If time and a half pay is all it takes to turn you into a jackbooted thug then you are a POS who deserves every little bit of misery that comes your way.

When you show up at said protest to protect the paramilitary death squad and use the power of law enforcement against people promoting anti-racism, categorizing you becomes shockingly easy and accurate.

I don't know a whole lot about Portland politics, my family and friends who live there steadfastly avoid the topic. But most of the rest of the state is deeply conservative (it was founded by and still has a huge base of Mormons), and always bitterly angry that Portland's blue vote is usually enough to override the rest of the state's red votes. Sundown towns existed all over the state well into the 70's, and unofficially still do. The southern half of the state was part of the movement to secede into a new hyper-conservative state, and the attitude that liberals and "negroes" should be shot on sight still has a lot of currency around there. It was bad enough in real cities like Medford, where I spent a fair chunk of my teens, but when you get out to smaller towns like Klamath Falls, it's downright scary at times.

It didn't surprise me one bit when the Bundy crew were all acquitted of everything but a handful of minor crimes.

Yep. The same cops that are standing around letting others be attacked by the Proud Boys. I have quit jobs and not accepted well paying jobs simply because of things I found out about the business. You stay in a job where you fellow workers are violent racists and do nothing then yes you are also a racist by association.

These "militias" are nothing more or less than the modern version of the SA, and if Trump wins will become the SS.


The SA were destroyed during the night of the long knives.  And by "destroyed" I mean completely dismantled and had their leaders killed outright, not "an opponent used a strawman attack against them" like current internet usage.  They greatly resembled the Proud boys and other Trump militia, and will likely be used and discarded the same way.

The SS were a bit different.  They had the background that were more appealing to the German status quo, and were largely recruited from the Hitler Youth.  Pretty similar attitudes, just a lot more controllable, and the "proper backgrounds" to make organizations tolerate a SS official suddenly showing up and barking orders.

Trump won't last if he sends Proud Boys to bark orders at a corporate boardroom.  He might get somewhere if he requires human resources to only be staffed by Liberty U grads.  And I'm sure Steven Miller (and the rest of the Nazi cabal) are completely familiar with the fate of the SA and care just as much for their militia followers.

If there is one thing that you should really pound into a Proud Boy's head (other than a hammer) it is the fate of the SA and exactly what Trump, Miller, Gorka, et all plan on doing once they succeed.  It isn't a surprise that Trump loves the poorly educated.

/Hitler probably would have held on the the SA if he had a chance
//but Rohm controlled the SA and really believed in the "Socialism" bit of National Socialism (being gay was something the party just kept quiet and ignored.  Lots of "unacceptable" sexual practices in the party).
///when the Army demanded the SA be destroyed in return for their loyalty, it was an easy thing to pay
