Victoria Taft at PJMedia concludes that the rioting in Portland has ended:
Have Portland’s Professional Protesters™ been smoked out? Since May 29th, Portland has been the back drop of more than 100 nights of antifa, anarchist and Black Lives Matter, Inc™ terroristic riots. They set fires, looted, and intimidated people by threatening to burn them alive in their homes.
But after the millions of dollars of destruction, criminality and thuggery it stopped last week. Poof!
I certainly don’t want to tempt these thugs, but it can’t go without saying that Portland’s 100 plus days of riots appeared to end after Wednesday, September 9th.
Could it be because of the wildfires in Oregon? Perhaps a switch in tactics?
She says, “Riot-weary Oregonians aren’t necessarily mollified by the concerted effort to shut down these reports. Until last Wednesday night, they’d seen the antifa rioters and arsonists in action on the news every night in Portland. And now some of them swore they saw those people in Estacada, Sandy, Molalla and other parts of the burning Clackamas County…Oregonians might well wonder that these “threat actors” are doing their arsons in the tinder dry woodlands of the state instead of nearby downtown Portland…
“The riots have stopped. Did they go to San Francisco or Lancaster, Pennsylvania to raise hell? Did they stop because of the smokey skies and air quality numbers that are off the charts? It seems unlikely that a group that spawned a murderer, multiple arsonists and police assaulters would be dissuaded by smoky quality air. Is it because the media are busy covering the wildfires and there’s nothing in rioting for the terrorists? Or is it because of something else?
“The riots are over for now. Why?”
Some analysts say because the rioting is hurting Biden’s election chances.
I fear a more sinister plot.
Reporter Lara Logan noted that Antifa groups have said, ““We will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days.”
The website for the group said, “#WhiteHouseSiege will electrify the U.S. election season — and it doesn’t stop there. Drawing wind from #MeToo, #BLM, #ExtinctionRebellion, and protests against Trump’s lethal bungling of coronavirus, we’ll inspire a global movement of systemic change — a Global Spring — a cultural heave towards a true world order.”
We know that these evil people are transported to various sites around the country to incite violence. That’s probably the real reason the Portland events have ceased. They’ve all flown to DC for an all out assault on our democracy.
We’ll know soon.
