Well at least a "good guy" with a gun shot back at the white supremacist proud boy. Hopefully the farker spends the rest of his life behind bars.

What an absolute failure of leadership. This shiat has been going on for 2 years. At this point, anyone using Portland as their own personal political sandbox is a terrorist. Its only hurting the people who actually live there, who are NOT the people slap fighting in the street.

I don't give a fark which side you are on. And believe it when I say that, because I thoroughly hate both of them by now. You want to disturb the piece, you should be shot and left to stink in the street until whatever semi literate 15 year old that bore you comes to collect your corpse.

A really nice city, completely ruined by total cowardice of leadership.

I love going to Portland because Seattle has yet to take the stick out of its ass.

But damn.....the city is becoming ugly with so many buildings being boarded up.

I usually stay at a Marriott in the downtown area, and and some of the lobby windows are still boarded up.

What is it about Portland that these idiots feel so emboldened to constantly start shiat there?  Is it the close proximity of the Branch Dildonians?  Weak city or state leadership that isn't declaring these guys terrorists and rounding them up?  You don't see this kind of shiat in Baltimore.

Nope.

I don't know that the police are "failing". They seem to be doing very well with their objective, which from almost every story on these appears to be to provide support to the right wing terrorists who are regularly attacking people in the city.

Now the city government and state could probably be doing more about that... so certainly plenty of failures there.

I am against fascism. My father was against fascism. My grandfather was against fascism. I don't belong to a group. I don't have a patch. I am an American. I served my country. These groups that are PRO fascism need to be dealt with. The local police is evidently not doing anything. They are not fleshing out the fascists.

It's time to take to the streets. Sadly. But it is time.

Ah yes, the Proud Boys are bad for attacking the city with the complicity of the cops, and Portland is bad for not shooting the Proud Boys, except when they did and authorities sent a literal death squad to murder him.

When Oregon was admitted to the United States in 1859, it was the only state whose state constitution explicitly forbade black people from living, working or owning property within its borders. Until 1926, it was illegal for black people to even move into the state. Its lack of diversity fed a vicious cycle: whites looking to escape the South after the end of the Civil War flocked to Oregon, which billed itself as a sort of pristine utopia, where land was plentiful and diversity was scarce. In the early 1900s, Oregon was a hotbed of Ku Klux Klan activity, boasting over 14,000 members (9,000 of whom lived in Portland). The Klan's influence could be felt everywhere, from business to politics-the Klan was even successful in ousting a sitting governor in favor of a governor more of its choosing. It was commonplace for high-ranking members of local and statewide politics to meet with Klan members, who would advise them in matters of public policy.

In this whitewashed world, Portland-Oregon's largest city then and now-was known as one of the most segregated cities north of the Mason-Dixon line: the law barring blacks from voting in the state wasn't revoked until 1927.

And if anyone thinks that law-abiding citizens shouldn't own ARs....well....
