As remarkable as it may seem, all these months later, radical revolutionaries and anarchists are still wreaking havoc in the streets of Portland, effectively holding the Democrat-run Oregon city hostage to their radical extremism.
A video from The Oregonian captured a Portland police officer being sucker punched by a protester, resulting in a “heated confrontation” when other officers quickly came to his defense. Suffice it to say, the individual behind the cheap shot got what he had coming to him.
Radical elements organized a protest after jurors convicted former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd — it’s safe to say that this cabal appears to look for a reason to be outraged. Then again, these elements have been in the streets for almost a year protesting in support of a contrived narrative of racist police allegedly targeting black Americans. While not supported by data, this assertion is now embraced as fact by the Biden White House and much of corporate America.
In the footage below, an officer is seen pushing away a protester who appeared to step in front of his bike, when another protester started screaming. As the officer moved away from the first protester, another man stepped forward and punched him in the face. His fellow officers quickly set upon the criminal with great force.

Here is another angle of officers reacting to one of their own being assaulted by the Antifa thug:

With President Joe Biden leading the way, the left continues to demonize police as severely as they did Trump supporters, and officers on the front lines of the moral decay in America are paying the price.
Speaking on the Chauvin verdict and policing, Biden read from the pages of critical race theory to speak about “systemic racism,” saying it’s “a stain our nation’s soul; the knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans,” further claiming that people of color “go to sleep at night and pray for the safety of themselves and their loved ones.” From police.
Decked out in standard Antifa gear of black hoods and backpacks, the unruly mob had become destructive and police declared an unlawful assembly, with at least two people being arrested, The Oregonian reported.
More from the newspaper:
A crowd initially gathered near the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse and Multnomah County Justice Center on Tuesday evening, and some began spray-painting the latter building about 9 p.m.
A group of roughly 60 began marching about 9:45 p.m., while about 25 other people remained near the courthouse and Justice Center.
Some demonstrators broke a number of downtown windows, according to police, who declared an unlawful assembly at roughly 10 p.m.
As reported by Portland-based conservative journalist Andy Ngô, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler anticipated trouble and declared a state of emergency in the city earlier in the day.
In addition to being able to impose a curfew, officials could also close streets and take other steps to quell political unrest.
Breaking: Portland Mayor @tedwheeler has declared a state of emergency in the city. Oregon state police and national guard are also on standby. #Antifa have put out flyers calling for violence tonight regardless of the trial outcome. #BLM

He had tweeted earlier: “BLM-Antifa in Portland promises violence ‘no matter what the verdict is’ in the Chauvin trial. This should make it clear that these months of riots have never been about justice but rather is an excuse to be violent & destructive without consequence.”
Ngô also shared video of the vandalism that took place Tuesday night — a repeat of what has been happening for a year now.
