Portland riot organizer Lilith Sinclair, who describes itself as an “Afro indigenous non-binary” protest organizer said that BLM’s mission for which she is a leader is the “abolition of the United States as we know it”. To me that sounds like a confession to trying to overthrow the government. Do you hear that Bill Barr?
She said that is working towards “not just the abolition of the police state, but also the United States as we know it.” She also made the false claim that she was standing on stolen land. A treaty signed in 1818 divided the land among the United States and England. We later bought out England’s share.
Welcome to the People’s Republic of Portland where history is not a required course for rioters, nor is it even considered relevant. There will be no peace in Portland as long as wimps like Ted Wheeler, the mayor is in office. He is perfectly content to let them riot as long as they don’t go after him.
The rioting in Portland is now in its 51st day and they have looted and burned businesses as well as assaulting innocent people. If this continues, President Trump may need to start thinking about sending in troops to restore order. It’s a safe bet that the socialist Democrats there are loving the riots because they do not ever enter their neighborhoods.
There is always hope that the victims of Wheeler’s fecklessness will rise up in November and kick him out of office. If not, they will get exactly what they deserve.
From Willamette Week:
For me, I cannot look at and will not look at these moments and these movements that are happening right now—we’re living through history—as riots. Instead, what they actually are, are the uprisings that the U.S. and every other imperialist and capitalist, racist and oppressive system has seen across history. There only comes a certain level to which you can ask large and vast numbers of people to sacrifice their literal health, lives and sanity for the capitalist system that will not provide for them and will also exploit their labor for the protection of the continual padding of the pockets of the 1 percent.
