A left-wing extremist who threw a firebomb at the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon, has allegedly been identified as a punk kid whose terrorism is funded in part by his grandmother.
Video footage out of Portland that was recorded late Monday evening and early Tuesday morning showed left-wing extremists throwing an IED-like device at the federal courthouse.

It’s believed the child pictured in the tweet above is the extremist who threw the firebomb. What’s interesting about that is that one week ago, on July 21st, a 65-year-old+ woman left a review on the website of Hibbett Sporting Goods for a “reflexive” vest that’s designed to look like a grown man’s bulletproof vest.
“I got this for my grandson who’s a protestor downtown, he uses it every night and says its [sic] does the job,” grandma proudly wrote.
Attached to the review was this curious photo:
Apparently the guy who threw an explosive at the federal courthouse in Portland has been identified in a review of the vest his grandma bought for him to riot in. You couldn’t make this up. pic.twitter.com/t0niw3boUN

Notice the possible resemblance?
In the event that these are the same people, it would appear that the fire bomber is a punk grandma’s boy whose terrorism — or at least some of it — is being funded by his nana.
This unsurprising revelation has naturally made the kid a target of mockery. If you want to be a terrorist — one going up against grown men, many of whom have likely served overseas — then at least be a man, not a little boy.
Plus, there may be enough video footage to get the kid arrested and sent to federal prison. And well, federal prison isn’t a fun place for little boys.
Look at the bashing below:
She should buy him some knee pads for Christmas. Grammy’s little boy is gonna need them in prison.

I’m sure the other inmates in prison will love this. He’s like those kids on Beyond Scared Straight who think they’re hard, but start crying for their moms the second inmates tell them what’s what.

He deserves years behind bars and his grandma can put money on his account to keep his heinie handlers happy. What he threw created a very large explosion that could have killed or maimed out law enforcement.

I actually feel for him, as he is so ignorant and I don’t believe he will fare well in prison. However the young have to learn, this is a unfortunate life lesson in consequences.

Antifa has always been a confusing name for the left to understand. They should be referred to as the Low-Tfa because all I see are skinny momma’s boys trying to reenact their last Call of Duty campaign.

Spoiled little rich kid, playing at being a revolutionarist. He would be pissing his pants and calling for grandma to come save him if a real revolution should occur.

This confirms 2 things:
1) This is LARPing at an epic level.
2) The Northwest is the new Confederate States of America.

The latter Twitter user brought up two valid points.
First, these kids are live action role-playing, in that they’re acting out their tough-guy fantasies as if they’re hard. But they’re not. They’re punk kids.
Second, these punks are like modern-day Confederates. So are the city leaders of Portland, as noted in a column last week by George Rasley, the editor of ConservativeHQ.
“Today, after years of street violence by ANTIFA and more than 51 days of violent insurrection by ANTIFA and BLM thugs, including attempts to set fire to the federal court house and the offices of the Portland Police Union, Portland’s city center is a burned-out wreck,” he’d written.
“However, rather than act to preserve order Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum have, in effect, joined the Confederacy.”
Criticism was also aimed at the grandmother for being ignorant enough to allegedly enable his abhorrent behavior.
No sympathy for his grandmother. She not only bought his terrorist vest, she posted a review, clearly not ashamed of what he was doing. Hopefully her little thug, will be arrested for Fed crime. She can visit him in prison. Now they need to see if she bought bomb making supplies.

Grandma is an accessory to a fed crime. How’s about that!
— FoncéAuClair=D2L (@OneMinPsychic) July 29, 2020
The grandmother should be arrested too.

Grandma admitted to buying stuff for him. Hope she gets charged as an accomplice.

Unfortunately, enabling punk kids to act like little terrorists is par for the course with unhinged left-wing zealots.
