In yet another shocking move by Portland’s “peaceful protesters,” far-left activists put their real agenda out on full display as they allegedly set Bibles ablaze in front of the federal courthouse.

Video from the Oregon city showed rioters setting American flags and what many said were Bibles on fire right on the streets outside of the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse. Though Portland Police reportedly did not engage with the demonstrators, it was noted that some small fires and one large bonfire were lit in the middle of the street.

“Now we move to the book burning phase,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted in response to the video. “I’m pretty sure ANTIFA doesn’t actually stand for what they say it stands for. Maybe just remove the anti part of [their] name and it’s perfect.”

The Department of Homeland Security reported Thursday night that “federal and state officers located inside the courthouse were not forced to leave the building during the course of the night,” as rioting had begun to taper slightly as local law enforcement was reportedly set to step up and do their jobs.

But several videos posted from the downtown area showed Bibles being thrown into the fires and flags set ablaze for some reason.

**WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE **

“Homeland Security is not leaving Portland until local police complete cleanup of Anarchists and Agitators!” the president tweeted Friday as rioters continued to set fires and attack barricades.

The leftists even dumped a severed pig’s head with a police hat onto a flag and set on fire.

While some Twitter users questioned the validity of the Bible-burning videos, many others reacted to the latest images noting that it is confirmation of what the real agenda is for the nightly protests that were sparked by the death of George Floyd and have gone on for over 50 days.

And with an ongoing pandemic, many others called out the double standard as Christians are not allowed to attend church services due to fear over the coronavirus but protesters can burn Bibles unimpeded.
