For the second time in less than 24 hours, Portland Police declared a downtown demonstration a riot during Fourth of July protests.
Mayor Ted Wheeler expressed concerns about Portland being on edge, heading into Fourth of July weekend. A riot was declared around 4 a.m. Saturday in downtown Portland after overnight demonstrations, but events through the day remained generally peaceful until late Saturday, when police again declared a riot.

Maybe at some point the politicians might realize that maintaining public order is one of the legitimate functions of government.
30+ days of riots and looting. And the mayor says the city might be on edge?
Is he nucking futs?
Portland’s hard core antifa were hardcore long before any seattle carpet baggers came there.
It is ground zero for antifa in the USA, I believe
One of the whitest towns in the country
oh dear daughter, please come home from that despicable place....
Of, by, and for. It’s on the people. Our agents have demonstrated they will do nothing or worse, abet the insurrectionists.
I can say with certainty that this is terrorism that was encouraged and tolerated until about 2018.
sadly, like most terrorists, the only solution is for them to be terminated. The terrorists will never quit
It started with Obama
the mayor realized it is no longer cute and trendy when he got push back from the high end inner city residents, and now the mayor allows the police to confront them, but it is too late, the terrorism continues and will continue until the terrorists are "gone" and cremated
back to burning the pioneer memorial:
hard-core is a good description. One of the guys up in Seattle caught on live stream hassling someone was all, man, they can’t be doxing antifa, we don’t know who they are, yet at the same time, they dox everyone. They decry police excess force yet think they have the power of lynching and summary execution. The level of paranoia is unbelievable in Portland and Seattle - all self-created and peer-normalized madness:
Rose City Antifa (RCA) is an antifa group founded 2007 in Portland, Oregon, United States. It has been called the oldest active antifa group in the nation.
Neo-Communists should be treated by society similar to how we treat Neo-Nazis, yet somehow they are not. And make no mistake about it, AntiFa are Communists at core.
“Generally peaceful”, “mostly peaceful”.
Tell a lie often enough and soon all will believe it.
Back in the day, we had a freeper who was an anarchist in Portland. He had good stories about it.
My leftwing niece left Portland and went to pollute Anchorage
