Portland: Antifa “Moms” Provide Human Shield Against Federal Law Enforcement

Portland: Antifa “Moms” Provide Human Shield Against Federal Law Enforcement

Chant “Leave our kids alone” and “Moms are here, Feds stay clear”

Portland, Oregon, has the dubious distinction of being U.S. antifa’s homebase and “ground zero” for violent “protests” that include vandalism, arson, assault, and other assorted crimes.

The violence and takeover of various public spaces by antifa in Portland long pre-dates the George Floyd protests that morphed into a combination of Black Lives Matter and anarchist riots in cities across the nation.

After seeing leftwing media activists’ “reports” that resulted in such Twitter hashtags as #TrumpGestapo and the Speaker of the House declaring federal officers “Trump’s stormtroopers,” a group of “Portland moms” decided to enter the fray and place themselves between the leftwing terrorists and the federal law enforcement agents deployed to protect federal property from looting, vandalism, and arson.

CNN reports (archive link):

Friday night, Bev Barnum said she was watching videos on social media from the protest showing people being detained by federal agents.

“It didn’t take long for me to find a massive array of video displaying obvious human rights violations,” Barnum told CNN.

. . . . Barnum said she told her husband she wanted to help and he suggested a fundraiser.

“But I thought I needed to do more so I asked the Portland working moms group to protest with me — to shield the protesters from harm with our ‘mombods,'” she said.

Barnum, founder of Wall of Moms, and about 70 other mothers converged onto the protest in downtown Portland, where protesters were gathered outside the federal courthouse. The women stood in the front of the protest line and locked arms to form a human shield. At times they were chanting “Moms are here! Feds stay clear!”

Hailed as heroes on the left, these moms undoubtedly think that protecting alleged criminals against federal law enforcement agents is noble on some level.

And yet . . . .

Their “wall of moms” shield standing between violent anarchists and law enforcement is intended to be meaningful on some sort of emotional level, so why are they partaking in apparently lawless behavior?

Because they can.  The media is running interference for them, hailing them as heroes, so of course their lawlessness will not register.


Perhaps if they spent their time raising their children to be law-abiding citizens, they wouldn’t need to be out there, muses Dana Loesch, via Twitchy:

Fat liberal Karens shielding their kids from actual consequences of their decisions is perfectly demonstrative of current insane leftists.

    This is Portland. This is why it’s Antifa’s HQ. Portlanders *want* to see Antifa rioting, they think it’s funny, or just “kids acting out” as one acquaintance I know there says.

    Let it burn. Back out, cut off all the money, cut off any support, let it burn.

      maxmillion in reply to Tom Servo. | July 21, 2020 at 9:28 pm

      Hey! Go burn your own. I’m in Portland. There are A LOT of conservatives in Portland. There just aren’t enough of us. Abandoning it to the libtards is no solution.

        You can take it back after they’ve burned it down and killed and eaten each other.
        Then you can rebuild it with other conservatives and enact some intelligent laws by electing small gov conservatives.

          Those are some of the ugliest mother father’s I’ve ever seen.

          Notice also they flat out lied. They don’t have any children with them. I’m sure they don’t have any and I’m sure also they aborted them all.

        JusticeDelivered in reply to maxmillion. | July 26, 2020 at 3:02 pm

        I looked up Oregon and SYG law, and found this:

        “Oregon law does not explicitly reference a “stand your ground” law or Castle Doctrine by name. However, the combination of Oregon’s statutes on use of force and the interpretation by the Oregon Supreme Court in a 2007 ruling imply that state law doesn’t require a duty to retreat. … There is no duty to retreat.”

        “Oregon Gun Laws: What You Need to Know | USCCA”

        Just as important is the shield prohibiting liability lawsuits by criminals and their families.

        I can remember, at least back into the fifties, families being destroyed, wiped out financially, by criminals suing them.

        Living in cities became a lose-lose situation, high crime, and ruinous lawsuits. People could not protect themselves or their property.

        Today, many cities are hell holes, would that be the case if we had SYG then?

    Now I understand why the kids turned out so lousy.

      Dysfunctional motherhood on display! Their weapons are guilt and emotional blackmail to the American culture, which can be very effective. Just go ahead and gas this herd of fat losers, then let them find a lover in prison. You wonder how many are divorced and sharing their beds with fond memories of chasing the men out of their lives and household. The mature fruit of feminism inflicted on society.

      That’s no joke. You’re right on the money.

      How many of these loons are raising children having ‘gender’ issues? You can bet a lot.

      Child discipline is a big issue.

      When I was a child there were various punishments, up to having to go to my bedroom, , drop my drawers, kneel on the bent over the bed, and then wait for dad to come in and give a swat or two. The real punishment was the waiting.

      I clearly remember how at about 12 years old that I knew exactly how much I could get away with before getting sent to my room to wait, well I misjudged that 🙂

      With my children, I used a variety of incentives for good behavior, and the same for bad behavior. Those trips to the bedroom were not common for my kids, but it was always on the table as an option.

      Now, one of my children tells me that spankings are a big no no.

      Everything in my experience makes me think that some corporal punishment is necessary, and that failure to use such as necessary leads to piss poor adults.

    #FakeNews Those ARE NOT “moms”, Prior Wearing Black AntiFa, Also Changed Into Black later for AntiFa Night Riots. icymi there’s published Pictures and Video Same Individuals Same Hat/Helmet, Same Glasses/Goggles, Same Mask yet In Black AntiFa Gear!

    Legal Insurrection Should Do A Full Article On This Democrat Socialist AntiFa Agitprop!

    Edward in reply to Olinser. | July 23, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    Andy Ngo said of those wearing yellow shirts while rioting at night that some of the “Moms” “…don’t even identify as female.”

If they want to insert themselves in the line of fire, mow them down.

    Kepha H in reply to krink26. | July 21, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Mow them down–it’s what a good, progressive regime like China’s or NorK’s would do.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to krink26. | July 26, 2020 at 3:38 pm

    As long as these people can get away with what they are doing, without any consequences, they will continue to do so.

    To change their behavior, they need to know that there is a significant chance that they could die, so at least some need to die.

NavyMustang | July 21, 2020 at 3:08 pm

So, these are the jerks who did such a wonderful job raising their commie kids.

Now i know who really needs to get their ass beat.

2smartforlibs | July 21, 2020 at 3:10 pm

Seems tight for 6 feet. It’s that what said about TRumps rallies?

Brave Sir Robbin | July 21, 2020 at 3:14 pm

I’m quite sure those masks do nothing to protect those “moms” from COVID-19, but how do they do against tear gas? Anyone know?

    Dusty Pitts in reply to Brave Sir Robbin. | July 21, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    As Mr. Owl said in the Tootsie Pop commercial, “Let’s find out.”

    Fighting mask hysteria. Excerpt,

    Known in some circles as “anti-mask masks,” these thin face masks are made of permeable materials such as mesh and marketed as having no protective qualities whatsoever against the spread of COVID-19.

    The idea behind the masks is that the wearers are still allowed to enter public places that require masks, even though their particular choice of covering is no different than wearing no mask at all — highlighting the fact that mask mandates are largely more about compliance than actual public health.

      4fun in reply to pfg. | July 21, 2020 at 10:02 pm

      I made mine out of some 3 year old leftover weed barrier fabric. Hardly covers my mouth. I see no reason to berate the store employees who are only doing what they need to do to keep their job.
      And not one has said anything about my mask. Just said thanks and welcome to the store.

    Even N95 masks properly fitted aren’t sure to protect the wearer against a viral disease, and everything else is guaranteed not to. I’m a couple of years younger than Biden and when I must enter a store which requires a mask, I have a Halloween mask to wear. It isn’t mesh but it’s good for a few laughs from others who get it (and dirty looks from Karens who can’t complain that I’m not wearing a mask).

A new extension of demanding gun control…putting “moms” out front as if Karenistas know reality. I always chuckle at “soccer moms” thinking soccer is harmless….seen a lot of 14 and 15 to girls with blown knees. All professional soccer players have brain injury. Leftist bubble wrap is toxic.

What a silly senseless mess. Every one of them would be horrified if their ‘baby’ got themselves shirt in the rioting, but likely not give two thought if their baby hurt or killed someone else in this madness.

    GWB in reply to Voyager. | July 22, 2020 at 9:28 am

    got themselves shirt in the rioting
    Heh. Who wants to start printing the “I took my mom to a riot and all she got me was this lousy t-shirt” shirts?

    Needs to be stylized, of course, but ideally would show people looting TVs and such in the background, and a “curvy” mom running and swinging a t-shirt over her head in the foreground.

Oh they are “mothers” all right.

Dusty Pitts | July 21, 2020 at 3:24 pm

For a Black Lives Matter event, most of those skin tones look mighty pale.

It would be interesting to see how many of these “moms” are actually mothers of human children. Doggie moms and kitty moms don’t count.

At any rate, the next step will be to deliberately put little children on the front lines, where the brownshirts hope they will be killed (and willing to do grease the little tykes themselves if law enforcement doesn’t do it). Saddam Hussein did the same thing in the first Gulf War by forcibly packing women and children into Iraqi installations where Coalition forces were likely to bomb. In both situations the Joseph Goebbels media could be counted on to play along.

Hiding behind mama just like their Hamas Buddies> Hamas buddies

Based upon appearances of these lovely ladies, artificial insemination must be the norm in Portland or the men in the region are blind and/or drunk.

    C. Lashown in reply to skeewt. | July 21, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    Their men, if they ever stopped running, are working in libraries as cross-dressers telling Susie how to be an independent woman. Damned Soy-boy incels.

Pile-drive ’em where they stand and let their screaming spawn trample them as they flee.

Adults need their mommies to protect them from “Trump’s private army aka Stormtroopers”? Isn’t that rather like the first woman to head a major party’s presidential ticket needing her husband and male former boss to campaign for her?

Comanche Voter | July 21, 2020 at 4:28 pm

Moms–putting beef–and a lot of blubber in the protest.

Atlantic Magazine had an article a few years back saying that Portland was the “whitest” city in the USA. It’s interesting that all those white folks are seizing the BLM movment.

Just ignore them and push them aside, when they act out body slam them and drag them by their hair to jail…. oh, I digress

Identifying bad parents was never so easy.

Water cannon…… bulldozers…….

Seriously, I would have my kid by his effin ear and drag his butt home. These people are sick.

    murkyv in reply to RichieD.. | July 21, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    I think it was when BLM started, but there was a video a few years ago of a Big Mama doing just that.

    Slapped that kid upside the head all the way back to her car

Boy, howdy!

You just can’t beat Motherly Love!

And another piece of the puzzle falls into place. The one that sheds further light on how these ‘kids’ got the way they are.

    DDsModernLife in reply to JHogan. | July 21, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    Somehow I think this is the product of a generation of kids (who are now the parents) who received “participation trophies” for their athletic efforts, no matter how mediocre.

Pitiful … just pitiful …

Sure, I see: As most are out-of-shape, kinda fat moms, they matter (weigh) more than ordinary moms.

What kind of grownups let their mothers fight their ideological, political battles? Those who’ve merely grownup physically but haven’t yet been weaned off their metaphorical nipple-tipped baby bottles yet, I guess. Infantilism, I think it’s called — right.*

Go home, mothers. Raise your grandkids to be kind and decent, law-abiding and societally useful, while you still have a chance.

* In Psychology

In a more general sense and in colloquial expressions —
childlike behavior in adults, particularly lack of judgement
and poor ability to make conclusions based on logical reasoning
as well as actions driven more by immediate impressions and
impulses rather than by rationale. Depending on degree of
expression can range from mental disorder, to behavioral
disorder or simply psychological makeup and personality trait
of otherwise healthy person.

Where are the “Dads”?

(still in the kitchen drawer with the other baking utensils?)

George_Kaplan | July 21, 2020 at 7:36 pm

So feral mothers acting as human shields for their feral kids, convinced of their own invincibility in the face of the MSM’s fawning praise, and the government’s unwillingness to actually embrace the stormtrooper model?

Try pulling that in China and you’d be scraping ‘momlets’ from the tank tracks. Then again would Far Leftists try such in China?

    The “Far-Leftists” DID try that in China. It’s called The Cultural Revolution.

    Of course, the far-leftists were also in charge at that point….

There are soccer moms, and there are sucker moms.

Then there are these bastards.

healthguyfsu | July 21, 2020 at 9:13 pm

If a crime occurs behind them, move them and if they refuse, arrest them.

Equal rights for men and women.

The losers hiding behind their mommies are there because they have mommies that are losers! Deport all of them all to Cuba and Venezuela! They do not deserve to be in the USA!

Mommy Mommy, you have to stop them from coming for me!!!!

“Moms“ can be criminals and terrorists too.

Moms are here
Well, this is what happens when you don’t raise your children properly. When you don’t give them good morals and critical thinking skills, and you don’t punish them for misbehaving and teach them a sense of responsibility, then SOMEONE ELSE has to teach it to them or remove them from civil society.

Yeah, thought not.

Someone should share the Animal House quote with this collection of bovine dimwits, “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life”.

texansamurai | July 22, 2020 at 10:47 am

stupidity, suet and spandex–always an attractive combination

Some sources claiming these were just some of the antifa/BLM rioters who changed clothes to “represent” mothers.

Treat them like adults. The appellation “Mom” has never carried any sort of legal immunity.

#FakeNews STUNT

Those ARE NOT “moms”, Prior Wearing Black AntiFa, Also Changed Into Black later for AntiFa Night Riots. icymi there’s published Pictures and Video Same Individuals Same Hat/Helmet, Same Glasses/Goggles, Same Mask yet In Black AntiFa Gear!

Legal Insurrection Should Do A Full Article On This Democrat Socialist AntiFa Agitprop!

An analysis show that these were the very same Antifa rioters but of a day before, if not several days for some.

Of course; over and over we see it — any faction of the Socialist Left (in this case, Nazi: Nationalist Socialist German Workers Party) in action:

Reiterations of the 1933 Reichstag fire — ie, they (the similarly, though hardly identically minded German Communists, political opponents of the yet-fully Nazified German state) are the arsonists, enemies of the German State! We (Nazis) thus need absolute power, they reasoned after the fire, once and for all, to destroy them (whoever opposes the Nazis) and keep them from harming you and, Uber Alles, Deutschland, their national anthem reminds them of their highest duty, “no matter how, no matter what”! (Don’t we hear this caveat from The Dem-Lefty-Globes today, regarding their need to hold power in the US?)

We know best (although we can’t disclose how we know that). You can certainly trust us. You’re safe and secure when you follow us.

How’d all that end for those Germans supporting and warring with the fully Nazified, multi-solution-implementing Third Reich?

Add in a Leninist Bolshevik cum Maoist Cultural Revolutionary flavor and then it’s hold on to your money, your freedoms, and your lives, America, should the same, modified Socialist Left’s vision here get the green light in November.

But we know all this, if we let history — even recent and current geopolitical events — show us. In the end, the question of our nation’s fate would seem to boil down to this: To what extent will our November voters sufficiently ignore such history’s and more recent events’ hard-studied conclusions.


Looks like mombods can provide plenty of shielding.

Look, doughnuts!!
