While Democrat politicians and their fellow hand-wringers in the media were busy labeling pro-Trump agitators who stormed the U.S. Capitol Wednesday as “terrorists,” Antifa rioters in Portland were at it for the third straight night, attempting to break into a police department with rocks and other weapons. Antifa reporter Andy Ngo posted a video on Twitter showing the violent scene outside the Tigard Police Department, just outside the city, that’s become all-too-common in Portland, where Democrat city officials have largely surrendered to the far-left mob that’s been allowed to assault and destroy throughout the city for years.
Watch with audio: Last night a large mob of antifa dressed in black bloc surrounded & tried to break inside the Tigard Police Department (near Portland). They smashed the windows & doors using weapons in the third consecutive night of rioting in Portland. pic.twitter.com/YAWiR3IzY3— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) January 8, 2021
In a subsequent post, Ngo added that the mob went on to vandalize nearby businesses after they were unable to breach the police department.
Overnight, a mob of antifa from Portland descended on the suburb of Tigard, where they tried to break inside the local police department. When that failed, they proceeded to smash up nearby businesses. This is 4th antifa riot in Portland-area since NYE. pic.twitter.com/5CZUnF7774— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) January 8, 2021
The attacks occurred just after President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris gave speeches defending violent groups like Black Lives Matter as “peaceful protesters” who would have been treated differently had they been the ones storming the U.S. Capitol Wednesday.
