Portland hasn't always been like this. Once upon a time, Portland Police were allowed to do their jobs, were respected, and maintained order. Back then, Portland was a decent place to live.
Decades of one-party Democrat rule has completely emasculated the city. During the riot, here's one poor boob getting attacked just walking down the sidewalk:
Notice how this guy is so demoralized and dispirited that he not only won't defend himself; but casually walks on home as if it were a normal occurrence. This is was life under Liberalism leads to.
Of course, Antifa themselves are a bunch of social parasites who contribute absolutely nothing of value to the world, They are total losers, but their thuggery is complete control of places like Portland.
When looking for causes of this stupid violence, the Corporate Media reflexively blame Trump and have been parroting the "this is the result of the Divisive Era of Trump"---as if a city where anyone with dissenting views are met with scenes like this:
---is actually being 'inclusive.'
But that point aside, let's look back a few years and see if 'divisiveness' is really a product of the Trump Administration. Doesn't anyone remember the Obama Administration?
Or the Bush Administration?
Or the Clinton Administration?
So it's the Democrats who've been preaching this 'divisiveness' line for a long time. And the Corporate Media Cartels with their endless barrages of anti-Trump fake news is exacerbating the situation. Gangs like Antifa have been fueled with this garbage---insulated from the Outside World in groupthink gulags like Portland and fed a steady supply of mind-altering drugs have convinced these clowns that 21st Century America is a reincarnated version of the Third Reich.
All of this talk of 'divisiveness' exists nowhere but in these people's own heads. The Trump Administration meanwhile has been draining the swamp, cleaning up corruption, making government more responsive and efficient, and expanding the economy. That's not 'division' but unity. And it's the type of unity that the whacko Left can't tolerate.
