What do you think?
Portland looks perfectly under control to me.
Graphic: Shane V. Green, who is black, walked inside a NE Portland laundromat & used a sharp handsaw to attack two women. Responding police located him on a nearby street but the arrest was interrupted by Portlanders who screamed at & taunted officers, accusing them of racism. pic.twitter.com/qfi2NJEen9— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 23, 2020
I recognize a lot of the so-called “moms” as the same antifa women who dressed in black as recent as a couple days ago. They just put on a yellow shirt now for optics. Most of these people aren’t mothers & many don’t even identify as female. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/UPffcao0fv— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020
This footage from Portland tonight is absolutely insane. Don’t look away. pic.twitter.com/wqucd1yQmI— Joshua Potash (@JoshuaPotash) July 22, 2020
Did you know there were riots in Olympia, WA? pic.twitter.com/5RLxuJ1fOA— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) July 22, 2020
Portland Mayor ?@tedwheeler? announced he will deny state ban on large gatherings & go stand on SW 3rd & Morrison at 9 pm (near the courthouse) tonight to talk with protesters. The rioting usually doesn’t begin until midnight. https://t.co/Tpwmv5y5Jj— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020
Antifa black bloc militant beats up BLM supporting photographer @MasonLakePhoto. Mason Lake was accused of communicating with Portland Police and a bounty had been put on him on social media by #antifa. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/pwvtWMpUeC— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020
Antifa black bloc tear off the plywood protective barrier to the Portland federal courthouse. They’re trying to break the glass underneath to set the interior on fire. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/00aFGkf1dF— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020
Federal law enforcement moved in & pushed & tackled rioters away from the Portland federal courthouse after they kept returning & trying to break inside. After rioters broke the glass under the wood barrier, officers rushed in. #antifa #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/PhfEvdffu5— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020
One of the support roles for those who help #antifa rioters is to drive around & resupply them and/or block the streets to slow movement of law enforcement. They do this with cars & also motorcycles. Here, federal officers confront a driver. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/0il8EznOXd— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020

Rioters carrying shields rush back to the Portland federal courthouse after law enforcement return inside. Rioters cheer and celebrate, claiming it to be a battle victory. #PortlandRiots #antifa pic.twitter.com/UORcZiuOBW— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020
Portland’s 7 weeks of street violence, looting & arson attacks are not because of a lack of police resources, but a lack of political will. Mayor @tedwheeler has a history of encouraging far-left mobs, like when he allowed rioters to siege the ICE facility https://t.co/Pdb3ZWuoOU pic.twitter.com/JJAd5R34dZ— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 22, 2020
The mayor of Portland doesn’t see the insurrection here:
Proud to cosponsor council resolutions affirming that Portland will not coordinate with federal troops occupying our city, and that journalists will not be targeted.— Mayor Ted Wheeler (@tedwheeler) July 22, 2020
We didn't ask for these troops in our cities. We don't want these troops in our cities. pic.twitter.com/x9UOrBDX7E— Mayor Ted Wheeler (@tedwheeler) July 21, 2020
Nothing can justify this intervention. The President's actions are unconstitutional. https://t.co/3fxXTprBwi— Mayor Ted Wheeler (@tedwheeler) July 22, 2020
The state attorney general of Oregon doesn’t see the insurrection either:
Tonight I spoke with @donlemon about why I'm suing the President over his deployment of federal troops to Portland. The answer is simple: it's unconstitutional it's my job to ensure the safety and rights of our citizens who are protesting police brutality and racial injustice. pic.twitter.com/cdotPMyVnP— Ellen Rosenblum (@EllenRosenblum) July 21, 2020
All of this has been accurately reflected in the coverage of Portland in the mainstream media too. Nothing has been hidden from the public in the new age of moral clarity in American journalism.
