Alice’s new wonderland…. the riots in Portland

November 12, 2016

It felt a bit like being Alice in wonderland when I woke on Thursday morning and read the news. I was sure I must still be asleep and dreaming as I watched the images flow past my eyes……….

The Oregonian (Oreganlive) wrote that…
Sgt. Pete Simpson, a Portland police spokesman said that anarchists “aligned with the Black Bloc groups” infiltrated the peaceful protest while “covered head-to-toe and carrying weapons.”

Foxnews online said….
Police in Portland, Ore. declared that a once peaceful protest was a riot after demonstrators were seen attacking drivers and committing acts of vandalism during their march against Donald Trump’s election Thursday night.
KPTV reported that the groups Don’t Shoot Portland and Black Lives Matter combined in Portland to become Portland’s Resistance.

Clinton supporters burning the American flag

…and of course true to form CNN online reported that
The thousands marching were only protesters and just demonstrating their opposition to Donald Trumps victory….. while at the same time Portland police called it a riot by anarchists.

*********

For months, during the Presidential campaign, we have seen protests outside Trump rallies turn to riots and the news outlets have assured us that it was caused by Trump’s rhetoric or that it was Trumps supporters those crazy racist conservatives who were out for blood. Yet I could never understand why anyone resorting to violence or destroying other peoples property would be a sign of support for their candidate.

I remember the previous two elections when I was incongruous over how Obama won based on his record but myself and those fanatically opposed to his victory never went out and enacted violent protest over his victory. I find it funny because these same people are the conservatives that the news media said were creating all the violence at the Trump rallies during his campaign. So I sincerely believe that we have to accept the fact that a large portion of our nations population believes the news media when they say that those protestors at Trump rallies are Trump supporters and that they are gullible enough to believe everything the news media reports.

However now, thanks to the riots in Portland, the vale has been pulled back and the truth revealed about which side is acting violently. We see by the actions of a portion of those supporting Hillary that they have no regard for the ‘rule of law’ by inciting violence and the destruction of other peoples property. It indeed was not those racist, bigoted conservative Trump supporters that reeked violence at the Trump rallies it is the same Clinton supporters who will not accept the reality that Hillary lost and once again rise up and break the law.

Protesting
against a perceived wrong
is guarantied by our constitution,
doing violence and
destroying others property is not.

Maybe if those responsible for these riots
are so unhappy
they should leave
and find
another nation to destroy.

    Also, the police reported that there were groups of demonstrators attempting to stop rioters from destroying property.You missed the tweets from the police telling the demonstrators to move away from the rioters.

    You are a trump supporter. Are you KKK? Do you believe that blacks and women are lesser human beings and should be subjected to white male rule? Were you one of the Trump supporters that threatened Revolution if Trump didn’t win?

    I know that FoxNews makes you feel better, strokes your ego… but really, that report was biased. And baseless. CNN still follows the journalistic requirement of a MINIMUM of 2 sources to confirm or deny the truth of a claim.

    Fox news does not follow that rule. They air it as soon as they ‘hear’ it and never check their source.

    Even that picture of the flag burning is an assumption. I don’t see any pro-Hillary t-shirts.

    How about Anti-Trump demonstrators? That is a better name. And more to the truth… because really, Hillary has already conceded. There is no Pro- Anything…

      teriggs,
      Oh please, Pete is certainly not a KKK member nor does he believe that blacks &/or women are lesser human beings. subject to white male rule.
      Sort of interesting you bring these up when Hillary claimed to be a supporter of women’s rights while taking millions of dollars from nations where women have few rights at all for their so-called Clinton Foundation.
      Further, speaking of the KKK, after Hillary was elected to the Senate, she looked to Robert Byrd as a mentor. Byrd was a member of the KKK in the 40s & actively campaigned to increase membership. That is a fact my friend.

        Jon… First, that was a rhetorical question regarding the KKK. Please tell me you know what ‘rhetorical’ means. If you don’t I will be happy to explain.

        Second, what are your sources for this information about Clinton? Fox? You certainly do know a lot about her… and find so much fault with her, that you would obviously not vote for her… Did you know these things about Clinton, these ‘facts’ 3 years ago, 4 years ago? When did you learn them?

        Now, let’s discuss Trump. He’s a womanizer, a proud slum lord of the 70’s and 80’s, someone who openly admits that he was happy to make money off of the housing crisis…. the LIST is long of his offenses against society. And many of those in just the last year. Since when was he a better choice.

        Those ‘facts’ my friend? Are a load of crap. They are FACTS given to you through the lens of someone that wanted to sway your opinion, for whatever reason… maybe it was a GOP hack that simply wanted to tip the scales in their favor? The FACT is that I could pick apart every single one of your arguments against Clinton merely by offering perspective.

        There is no light with which to shine on Mr. Trump to alter HIS facts. Your arguments are nothing more than just a bunch of “I know you are, but what am I?”. Trump has not renounced the KKK, he accepted their support, Trump IS the old white male sexist pig establishment incarnate. And the FACT is that 47% of the country, representing only 25% of the voting pool, means that 53% of the remaining voters DID NOT vote for him. The reason he is president has to do with checks and balances put in place to protect us from a tyranny of the majority. But Mr. Trump, well, he figured out how to trick the system, with Hate. Because Hate, is the only minority left in this country.

    You wrote “Maybe if those responsible for these riots are so unhappy they should leave
    and find another nation to destroy”. No please don’t encourage them. Chances are they will come to Canada. ;-)

      Don’t worry Michael except for those that are rioting for the most part they are all talk and those that are violent are not leaving because they are paid too well to cause that mayhem.

    Funny, when the Tea Party people had their protests, no violence, or destruction of property & they didn’t leave the areas they were in looking like a garbage dump.
    I think these people supported Clinton or any liberal for that matter but these protests aren’t really so much about supporting or not supporting a candidate running for office as much as it is about people control through show of force & this kind of stupidity.
    As Pete said at the end of his post & also some celebrities have threatened to leave the country if Trump was elected; please do so as soon as possible & leave all of your capitalistic earnings behind. Why suffer that painful reminder of a country you used to live in every time you reach in your pocket to buy something?

    The old axiom ‘none are so blind as those who will not see’ describes a lot of uber-liberals of late whom remain in denial regarding the election. As you pointed out, Pete, when Obama was elected twice there were a lot of very saddened and angered conservatives across the country yet they didn’t riot, spew vitriol and destroy property. I truly laughed at the questionable verbiage put forth by ‘tcriggs’ especially the “Do you believe that blacks and women are lesser human beings and should be subjected to white male rule?”. What a crock; by definition this is what Islamic extremists believe although they feel it is they who should ‘rule’. Typical liberal nonsense and a window into exactly why this country is in the terrible condition we find today. Also loved the question regarding your membership in the KKK! Classic liberal crap; you don’t agree with them 100% so that makes you a Klansman or a racist or a homophobe or a redneck or any other of a list of labels they love to use. Yet one of their core beliefs is all people are equal; I guess that only applies to people who believe as they do. Finally, I’d wager ‘tcriggs’ never fought for this country as you did, Pete. You made a huge sacrifice to insure this loser can spew such nonsense. Sometimes I wonder if I could turn the other cheek regarding such sad excuses for human beings…
