The antifas are have really outdone themselves this time:
“We will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag and push those people out as we will not give one inch to groups who espouse hatred toward lgbt, immigrants, people of color or others. In case the message was not clear to you this is a sanctuary city and state and we will not allow these people to spread their views in East Portland. You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely.”
This is from the antifa Facebook event page:
“Fascists plan to march through the streets of Portland in the Avenue of Roses Parade on 82nd.
The fascists know that we’ll keep shutting their marches down, they are now planning to march within other parades to protect their message of hate and white supremacy – it WON’T work.
Nazis will not march through Portland.
The group we’re disrupting is #67.
It is registered to the Multnomah County Republicans, but these infiltrators are the same folks from Lake Oswego, Salem, Vancouver, and even Berkeley. These are the folks that attacked a woman at PDX, they harassed Latinx parishioners with slurs and threats at a local church, they spew hate, threaten and curse young women at women’s health clinics. They seek to intimidate and harass our Latinx, Muslim and LGBTQ+ neighbors and friends. Their Trump flags, their red MAGA hats and their hate group badges are all intended to normalize support for an orange man who bragged about sexually harassing women and who is waging a war of hate, racism and prejudice against our Muslim, Latinx, Black and Native neighbors.
They will attempt to march from the Eastport Plaza to Yamhill, but nazis will not march through our city.
This event is not in opposition to The Avenue of Roses Parade, it is against the fascists who intend to march through our neighborhoods and intimidate our marginalized communities.”
The Oregon Republican Party has released a statement:
“The organizers of the annual Avenue of Roses Parade have received an e-mail threat from “[email protected]” warning that unless the parade organizers revoke the registration of the Multnomah County Republican Party in this year’s parade (set for this Saturday, April 29th), the group will send “two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag and push those people out”. The group brags that “You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us”.
Sessions-Wheeler-Currier-Sanctuary-Victims The Multnomah County Republican Party (MCRP) has for many years participated in the Parade, and calls upon the Mayor, the Police Chief, and the District Attorney to take action against this criminal conspiracy to commit crimes of riot and disorderly conduct in violation of Oregon law. “Under former Mayor Charlie Hales,” said James Buchal, MCRP Chair, “the City allowed this cancer of lawlessness to grow to the point where its leaders are now bragging, like some sort of comic book characters, that ‘the police cannot stop us’. But this is no laughing matter. The participation of political parties in public events like the Parade is not only an American tradition, but also reflects the most fundamental constitutional rights of free speech and freedom of assembly.”
“The road to fascism begins with armed gangs of thugs using violence to shut down opposing points of view. The question now is whether the City of Portland will be complicit in such conduct. We hope the City’s new leadership has the courage to respond to these threats appropriately.”
So, we have organized mobs of black-clad domestic terrorists running wild in Portland, threatening, challenging and nullifying the constitutional rights of free speech and free assembly. We literally have violent communist street gangs dictating who can appear in public:
“A threatening email has derailed one of the Portland Rose Festival’s signature events, and spurred new debate about the ongoing political protests in Portland.
Organizers of the 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade announced Tuesday that the event will be canceled, for fear that the east Portland parade could be disrupted by “the type of riots which happen in downtown Portland.”
Originally scheduled this Saturday, April 29, the parade is meant to highlight the local community and businesses along Southeast 82nd Avenue, aiming to turn around the negative perception many people have of the area. It started in 2007 and has since become a popular event on the Rose Festival calendar. …
Organizers pulled out after contacting Portland police, according to Rich Jarvis, spokesman for the Rose Festival Foundation. When police said they couldn’t offer any additional security for the parade, organizers decided to cancel it due to safety concerns. …”
The target was the Multnomah County GOP this time (!!!)
Do you see where this is going? The FBI and Justice Department are doing nothing. The antifas boast about their ability to violently overwhelm the Portland Police Department. The state is ceding its monopoly on the use of force to violent anarchist and communist street gangs.
Just use your imagination. This isn’t going to end well.
Note: As I have been saying here, we are at war with the antifas. There is a common threat here and we need to set our differences aside to deal with these people.
