ANTIFA Violence Continues to Plague Portland, Seattle While Locals Vent Anger at Local Officials

ANTIFA Violence Continues to Plague Portland, Seattle While Locals Vent Anger at Local Officials

“I think many feel abandoned by those in city government who don’t speak out against this..the silence in some ways is deafening.”

ANTIFA celebrated President Joe Biden’s inauguration by vandalizing and rioting in Seattle, WA, and Portland, OR.

They do not care who is in charge in D.C. They chanted, “F*ck President Biden” as they destroyed businesses in Seattle, WA.

The only thing that has changed is the silence from the Democratic leaders even after ANTIFA vandalized the Oregon Democratic Party offices in Portland, OR.

Portland

Authorities arrested eight people for allegedly vandalizing the offices:

Eight people, ranging in age from 18 to 38, were arrested in connection with the event. The charges range from felony criminal mischief to possession of a destructive device. Various weapons were also seized, including Molotov cocktails, knives, batons, chemical spray and a crow bar, according to police.

The Democratic Party said it was disappointed ANTIFA targeted its headquarters, but that ut should “take away from the fact that today is a joyous day for America.”

Seattle

Then there’s Seattle. ANTIFA vandalized and ruined the original Starbucks along with an AmazonGo store:

A group, which numbered about 100 protesters early in the evening and later dropped in size, marched through downtown and called for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In chants, they decried both former president Donald Trump and Biden.

Police made at least three arrests as of 9 p.m., for property damage, burglary and an assault, according to Seattle police.

Outside ICE offices on Second Avenue and Spring Street, several in the crowd lit fire to an American flag. Some spray-painted and smashed three windows at a building that houses an AmazonGo store. “Amazon uses $ 2 fund tech for ICE,” read one tag.

The locals have had enough with local officials not doing anything.

John Scholes, president of the Downtown Seattle Association, said that everything has become predictable. He also reminded the Democratic officials that these extremists are not interested in “democracy or exchange of ideas or trying to make our city better.”

“They’re bent on destroying it,” Scholes stated.

More from Q13FOX:

“I think many feel abandoned by those in city government who don’t speak out against this..the silence in some ways is deafening,” Scholes said.

Natalia Wittke, owner of Sell Your Sole Consignment, said it doesn’t matter if the businesses damaged last night are big corporations or small employers; it affects everyone.

“It affects all of our morale; it affects how we feel about the city, how we feel protected in the city,” Wittke said.

She said she loves working in Seattle. Her business is still thriving. But she’s incredibly frustrated with the state of downtown.

“Everyone has the right to protest and we should always protect that right it’s so important to speak our hearts and our minds,” said Wittke.

But she sees no logic in the destruction of property.

Here’s Mayor Jenny Durkan’s statement:

“Violent threats, vandalism, and misogynistic and homophobic hate speech are unacceptable in our community,” the spokesperson’s statement said, in part. “Mayor Durkan has consistently denounced individuals who are targeting small businesses and government facilities.”

On a National Level, Where are the Democrats and Biden?

It was easy to blame President Donald Trump, but now that ANTIFA is screaming against Biden, does it matter?

At the first debate, then-candidate Biden told moderator Chris Wallace “the violence should be prosecuted.” Wallace asked if he called Gov. Kate Brown or Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler.

Biden said he had not because did not hold public office at the time and that the two officials “can in fact take care of it if [Trump] just stays out of the way.”

So maybe it’s not shocking that Biden has not responded to the continuing violence, even though ANTIFA targeted the Democratic Party.

Comments

If a riot takes place in the Pacific NorthWest and Media doesn’t make a sound about it… Did it really happen?

    Mr. Matt, with all respect, it’s worse than silence. As one of the videographers noted, “police are now trailing.” This speaks volumes as to the attitudes of the seattle and portland politicians AND police.

    I got a phone call this morning asking for money to support the police. Before the idiot hung up on me, I ‘splained to him that the police were either showing up after the violence and destruction took place, or, like sheep, following along behind like the parade followers picking up the horse poop. I told him that I wouldn’t give a dime to anyone using the Nuremburg trial excuse, “I was only following orders.” I told him that my money went for more ammo.

      I just tore up a mailer from some fund-raising group that wants too help send the chldren of “fallen” LEOs to college. No. Those kids are no more worthy than the kids who lost parents to raids on “the wrong house”, or had to spend the kids’ college fund for lawyers to fight specious charges.

      Nuts to them.

        I think you have a false equivalence here.

        The “wrong house” victims have a day in court (or usually a nice settlement prior to court). I’m not saying that brings back their loved ones but it could certainly take care of college funds.

        Fallen LEOs (many of whom have been absolutely hung out to dry by the liberals and the media) have no such day in court. This is a worthwhile cause.

          Damages for “wrong house” are VERY hard to get. Especially if you aren’t A protected minority. The cops have the presumption on their side.

        Since it’s financial, I expect those children of fallen LEO’s will have some sort of hazard or life insurance payout, because death in action is a well known although very unlikely possibility. I believe being a cop is not one of the most dangerous jobs statistically.

    These stupid people just re-elected that fool Wheeler.

    You cannot cure these people – we just have to leave them behind.

    Ssssshhhhhhhh ….. got to be quiet or you’ll be canceled.

    But didj’all notice that this was another amazing outbreak of “polite taggers?”

    All the spray paint was on glass windows, where one pass with a razor scraper and it’s history.

    Not one smudge on the concrete walls, where it would have been a bitch to get off.

To Portland:

Fuck off and enjoy the fruits of your voting.

“No man survives
When freedom fails.
The best men rot in filthy jails;
And they who cried: ‘Appease, Appease!’
Are hanged by those they tried to please.”

I wonder if a resident who was being assaulted in Portland were to use deadly force, could get away with doing so? If Antifa started loosing their thuglets on a regular basis, would they get the message?

Really, these residents are starting to understand why people bailed out of cities. No, it was not about racism, it was about piss poor character.

    No, anybody who dares attempt to defend themselves would be swarmed by violent thugs who will kill them if they can. Rittenhouse is a good example. If he had defended himself *once* and stopped, the rest of the thugs would have killed him. He defended himself as best he could, in a way that left a trail of bodies as long as the thugs attempted to murder him. Now, the State is going to try to put him in jail forever for refusing to be killed by criminals.

    Be very careful, people. Even if you’re right in defending yourself, you can still wind up very wrong.

      The third person Rittenhouse shot had a handgun in plain sight, and further was a felon. How is it that he’s not charged federally? Hmm?

      That tells you all you need to know about the Department of No Justice.

        And “Medic” on his hat. Might as well add an international war crime (in moral terms, at least).

Sigh …. We are back to “mostly peaceful protests”.

/speculation
Give it a couple of weeks to settle down. They’ll cut off the drugs or change the mix. They might not even prosecute the suppliers, just make tranks the flavor of the month instead of meth.

Multiple people have pointed out just how, well, crazed, the antifa perps look.
/speculation

With no MSM coverage, it is all howling at the sky, both antifa and the residents.

Just imagine if Mayor Daley had been in charge of Portland… or the fascists had tried their routine in Chicago.

One of the finest moments of the ’68 convention was seeing Dan Rather take a punch to the gut that literally left him gasping for breath. If only they had used a baton, as well.

What? The Democrat’s monster has broken free again and is terrorizing the villagers? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you.

How stupid would a citizen have to be that Antifa would go away if we could just get rid of the horrible Orange Man? How weak would a citizen have to be not to be taking action after 9 months of this? Welcome to the world you made, dudes.

They’ll quiet down after the Dems bench Biden.

Perplexing why Dems won’t condemn months of sustained anarchy. Unless the anarchists have something that the Dems don’t want coming out. Like where are the anarchists’ funding sources.

    The ‘anarchists’ are the paid thugs of the left. The likes of the idiots in elected office here do what they’re told by the left.

    The idea being: fools like Wheeler are placeholders, with the real power being manifested with the street goon army the left populates with BLM goons and Antifa goons. That street army is led by — let’s cut to the cha$e – Communist China.

    If sh-t hits the fan, Ted Wheeler’s life won’t be worth a nickel. Not that it’s worth that much now.

      Likely that after the steal, the Democrats dropped payments to Antifa back to retainer levels. So Antifa attacks Democrats to show they need full-time payroll fulltime. It’s a negotiation. That’s all.

Harris still working to get protesters out of jail?

“So maybe it’s not shocking that Biden has not responded to the continuing violence, even though ANTIFA targeted the Democratic Party.”

But how do you arrest and indict an idea?

These continuing riots will only become newsworthy if the media can figure out how to blame them on Trump supporters.

When Trump sent a few Feds to Portland to keep Antifa and BLM from burning down the Federal courthouse, the media said it was a terrible thing to do. But when Biden sent 25,000 Federal troops to DC to protect his coronation, the media praised him for it.

Now think about the moronic statments by that dumbass hack general biden just made sec of defense, warning about right wing and Trump violence.

Either he’s stupid, or he’s as corrupt as fauci.

The news reports that not-President Biden has tasked his incoming intelligence chief to investigate domestic terrorism. Pretty sure he doesn’t mean AntiFa and BLM.

Justice for Ashli Babbitt!

Oregon and Washington used to be great states to visit by driving up the coastlines. Nowadays, their cities are the epi-centers of riots and anarchy.

The leftist denizens of these two depraved Communist hellholes voted for this stuff and now they’re complaining?

Tough sh*t.

I hope the cities burn to the ground with these leftist morons fenced in. Let THEM be homeless since they seem to have no problem with them.

These are modern day Sodom and Gomorrah.

What a bunch of morons, all they have done is make themselves look like prats and any moderate will look at there behaviour and simple say arrest them. I hope they have the full extent of the law thrown at them. Any cause that they seek to support is being undermined by their collective stupidity.

I. Do. Not. Care. This is what the “progressive” voters in these cities have asked for. Let them have it.

And the rest of us should remind them that intervening, as Pres. Trump attempted at one point, is fascism.

Grrr8 American | January 23, 2021 at 12:38 pm

The Bolsheviks are ramping up to go after the Kerensky’s.

Enjoy your “social justice” dumba**’s — and thanks for pulling us down into the abyss with you.

Well… the locals only have themselves to blame since they keep voting for the politicians who support this violence, and they support causes and organizations that excuse the violence.

Antifa – F**k Trump! F**k Trump! F**k Trump!
The Dems – Oh, it’s just some angry youngsters peacefully and legally venting their frustrations at a racist nazi man none of us voted for. Their spirit is inspiring, Isn’t it?
Antifa – F**k Biden! F**k Biden! F**k Biden!
The Dems – These terrorists have to go…

During the LA riots, some folks sat on the roofs of their businesses, with a rifle. Those ones didn’t burn.
