Where are the Men in Portland

The country has been roiled by riots for over two months, but Portland in particular has had devastatingly violent riots every night for over 70 nights!  Portland and major cities across the land have suffered untold millions of dollars in damage and lost business; the price tag in Minneapolis may be over half a Billion dollars.  Incredibly riots continue around the nation, but Portland has been the focal point.  ANTIFA and assorted anarchists in Portland have persisted in attacking not just police but any citizens that won’t comply with their demands and especially if they dare oppose their vicious assault on America.

    For weeks Portland hoodlums attacked and even fire bombed the Federal Court House, so President Trump sent Federal agents to protect it because the moronic mayor of Portland refused to stem the anarchy and protect Federal property or any property for that matter.  Incompetent Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler insisted the presence of Federal law enforcement only exacerbated the chaotic situation, so after weeks of assaults on our judicial institutions some compromise was reached and the federal presence was minimized.  However, as expected that did not placate the domestic terrorists; they simply turned their insatiable anger and furious attention to local police.  So it really wasn’t about federal intervention.  These anarchists vehemently oppose any authority.

    This past week pernicious Portland rioters attempted to breach and burn down the Portland East Police Precinct with police officers inside.  So who showed up to their aid?  More police, federal agents, or the National Guard?  No!  A couple of courageous elderly women, one with a walker, came to the defense of Portland police!  In a heart wrenching video two old women faced down a mad mob.  They implored the masked and hooded punks to cease and desist.  They were assaulted by young marauders and splattered with paint, but these old women held their ground!

    Really?!  Where are the MEN in Portland?!  Where are the men in America for that matter?!  Across the nation police are enduring withering attacks.  277 police in Portland alone have been injured and three police officers may have been permanently blinded by laser wielding rioters.  Incredibly the police are getting NO support from elected officials; they are actually cutting funding for police and even seriously considering abolishing police departments.  The citizens of these Democrat run cesspools certainly voted for this madness, but surely there must still be some decent upstanding Americans in these communities.

    We know there are at least two fierce old women in Portland, but again where are the men?!  Well men, the police need to know we have their backs; and actually our citizens need to know good men will come forward and stand for decency, liberty, and the American way.

    While manhood is apparently lacking in Oregon, they have it Colorado.  On at least three occasions and most recently in a Fort Collins suburb, average Americans have had enough; they physically ran ANTIFA and BLM rioters out of their communities.  Armed citizens stood up to the mob, demanded they leave, and escorted them out of town.  In a video from Fort Collins, the rioters attacked an old Veteran in a wheelchair as they left the neighborhood.  Fortunately, his neighbors intervened and administered some old fashioned justice as the held the cowards for police who arrested them.

    Anarchists and dim witted thugs always seek the weak and violence, so they only understand strength and force.  Sadly law enforcement is being undermined by our lily-livered politicians, so until we can vote them out average Americans must take a stand.  We must make it clear we will absolutely not tolerate these domestic terrorists in our communities.  These riots are purely political, but they threaten the safety of our families.  This past weekend the Portland rioters left downtown to venture into residential neighborhoods where they threatened to burn down homes.  They screamed at residents absurdly castigating them for supporting capitalism because they were trying to sleep so they could go to work in the morning.  Such nonsense is childish, but it shows these morons are serious about ending capitalism.

    This is not a call for violence, but we must face the fact these rioters only intend violence; and we must be prepared.  ANTIFA and the anarchists have declared war on capitalism, the family, law and order, and traditional American values in general.  These avowed anarchists and Marxists openly admit their goal is to dismantle our Constitutional Republic.  This is simple sedition; this insurgency must be put down.  The rioters want war, but hopefully we can avoid it by punishing Democrats at the ballot box.  America is divided and suffering because Democrats refuse to condemn the violence and in many cases they endorse the rioters.  Democrats are using the rioters as violent proxies to defeat Trump, so remember their nefarious tactics in November and vote for America by voting against every Democrat.

    “Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.”  Luke 22:36

  1. Thanks for your excellent commentary.
    You have spelled it out eloquently.
    Sometime, I don’t know who I am more angry with,
    the violent protestors or Sissy men that let it happen.
    God Bless America, We need all the Help he can give.

  2. Donald, Thank you for reading my column and you kind comments.
    The Lord is in control; we need only pray and do his will.
