Destructive Antifa riots marking the anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death were held in cities across the US this weekend, including Seattle, New York, and Los Angeles.
Video shows Antifa smashed storefronts, clashed with citizens, and vandalized property during their armed marches through city streets.
Los Angeles: #Antifa held a violent protest to honor Breonna Taylor. It was organized by the local cell for the Youth Liberation Front. The same organization organized the riots in Portland and Seattle last year. #AntifaRiots pic.twitter.com/A53zSafV9H— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) March 14, 2021
Overnight on 12 March, #antifa gathered to riot in NW Portland. They began smashing up an apartment building before police quickly created a perimeter & boxed them in. Antifa were found carrying guns, knives, hammers & other weapons. 13 were arrested. https://t.co/f2WXZmVFBB pic.twitter.com/kq0uymBsj9— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) March 13, 2021
The 26-year-old Taylor was shot and killed in her apartment in Louisville, KY, after her boyfriend fired at officers as police carried out a search warrant in March 2020.
After dozens of #antifa smashed out windows in a residential area of downtown Portland, police kettled an entire street of them, the first time in years that effective tactic has been used. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/m57WHIq1NG— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) March 13, 2021
Joe Biden has been hesitant to condemn the actions of Antifa, calling the violent group "an idea" and not recognizing them as an armed, terrorist organization.
