Antifa Rioter Gets Cash Reward in Portland

Why does this Antifa punk have such a self-satisfied smirk on his face?

Probably because he is high as kite, but also because he has been rewarded with $23,000 by the moonbats running Portland for goading police into hitting him with rubber bullets while he was rioting.

Via the Post Millennial:

Last week the Portland City Council approved a financial payment to an antifa extremist with a history of supporting terrorist attacks on law enforcement after he alleged in a lawsuit his civil rights were violated by Portland Police. The city settled nearly $23,000 with James Mathew Mattox, 31, who filed a complaint saying police injured him and stifled his rights during a riot in 2018.

Locked-Down Portland’s Bizarre Priorities Exposed

COVID-19 is not a serious problem in Oregon, but that has not prevented Governor Kate Brown from extending the pointless lockdown that is destroying the economy until after the 4th of July. A Conservative Resurgence video update on the state of affairs in the Beaver State reminds us never to let moonbats achieve demographic leverage through colonies like Portland, lest they elect the likes of Brown:

Portland Area’s No Whites COVID-19 Safe Space

It seems there is no aspect of the liberal agenda that cannot be promoted in the name of fighting COVID-19. The moonbats who prevail in the Portland area combat the virus by excluding whiteness:

The April 5 “situation report” from the Multnomah County Office of Emergency Operations Center announced that the “Emergency Operations Center Equity Officer is hosting a grounding space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) employees to share, heal, connect, and get grounded in a space that is not dominated by whiteness.”

As esteemed countermoonbat Heather Mac Donald notes,

“It is of course outrageous that any alleged public health or service organization would spend any energy on reinforcing racial victimology and racial discrimination during this time of allegedly overburdened public health systems. But race hatred has been so baked into many government agencies by now that it is par for the course.”

This race hatred is entirely directed toward Caucasians, so it is consistent with liberal dogma.

What about Brown v Board of Education, which did away with “separate but equal” facilities? Surely, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will swoop down to end this obvious workplace discrimination. Or maybe not.

“Multnomah County is acting lawfully,” Julie Sullivan-Springhetti, Multnomah County communications director, said in a statement to Just the News. “The space excludes no one. It is based on shared lived experience not identity. The same way our employee resource groups for veterans, parents, and people with a disability are based on life experience and not identity. All are welcome here.”

All are welcome, except white people — and white people don’t count because privilege. Anyway, it sounds like Ms Sullivan-Spaghetti would open-mindedly let Rachel Dolezal or Shaun King in, because of their “lived experience.” Jeb Bush might even sneak in as a Latino.

Applied Liberal Ideology at Portland Bus Stop

Academia endlessly demonizes Caucasians, blaming them for the failures and shortcomings of other groups. This pernicious ideology is exported to the media. From there, it filters down to the streets, resulting in behavior like these antics in Portland:

Nimo Jire Kalinle, 42, had just exited a No. 4 bus at North Fremont Street and Gantenbein Avenue on Jan. 19 when she started slugging Janae Jordan in the face repeatedly, court records allege.

During the attack, Jordan, who was with her husband and child, asked why the woman was targeting her.

“It’s because you’re white and I hate white people,” Kalinle, who is black, told Jordan, a probable cause affidavit alleges.

Tell people to hate and some of them will take you up on it.

Janae Jordan can count her blessings that she didn’t encounter Daniel Tuski Bertrand instead. Portland is apparently not a safe place for women of politically incorrect pigmentation to be out and about.

The Danger of Practicing Journalism in Portland

As mentioned earlier, Antifa goons took advantage of sympathetic local government to assert control over downtown Portland last Saturday, throwing eggs at police and forcing them to retreat as they vandalized property. The absence of a functioning police force under moonbat rule made it a bad scene for journalists:

TheBlaze on Monday reported about a threatening Antifa mob chasing a videographer during a weekend protest in Portland, Oregon — after which unsympathetic riot police told the videographer that “we’re not gonna come out and save you.”

Another journalist got worse treatment the same day, as police did nothing.

Brandon Brown — described by conservative writer Andy Ngo as a “local citizen journalist” — was recording video of Antifa gathered on a street when the mob turned on Brown.

Brown’s cellphone camera stayed on throughout the ordeal, showing at least 10 Antifa thugs surrounding him before several began poking him with umbrellas. Indeed, Portland police confirmed that some protesters used “metal-tipped umbrellas” to jab “people and chase them down the street.”

The Antifa fascists called him a Nazi (of course) and sprayed him in the face with “what appeared to be pepper spray,” blinding him.

Nearby, a large group of police on bicycles refrained from lifting a finger. No doubt they had orders from Antifa-friendly Mayor/Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler to let the goons do as they pleased.

Antifa is liberal-run cities’ equivalent of the Red Guard, which consisted of ideologically deranged young hoodlums who terrorized China with winks and nods from the government during the Cultural Revolution.

Brown’s video demonstrates what liberal fascism looks like at the street level:

Civilization Retreats From Antifa in Portland

Antifa continues to fill the vacuum caused by moonbat rule in Portland:

Antifa ran wild on the streets of Portland Saturday, taking advantage of a cancelled and dubious supposed Ku Klux Klan rally to wrestle control of the city’s downtown from the Portland police.

Mayor/Police Commission Ted Wheeler, a flaming liberal, sides with the anarchists. Without political support, the police had little choice but to retreat as they were pelted with eggs and other missiles.

No wonder cops from the surrounding area refuse to work in Portland.

Here’s what the Antifa goons did to a monument commemorating those who fought in the Spanish-American War:

All remnants of American civilization will be defaced and then erased when moonbats achieve total dominance.

Portland to Impose Climate Justice Tax

Portland has gone so far off the rails, it plans to impose a scaled-down local version of AOC’s demented Green New Deal. This is unlikely to have any impact whatsoever on the supposedly problematic climate, but it will succeed at its actual objective: confiscating and redistributing money on a racial basis.

A sympathetic take from Willamette Week:

The Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund, or PCEF, will raise as much as $60 million a year from a new tax on big retailers. The money is supposed to supply clean, efficient energy and jobs to people the city has long slighted.

The jobs and energy are not for everyone, but only for the politically preferred — or “underserved,” to use a favorite progressive euphemism.

The overarching goals: to provide members of underserved communities with valuable skills while insulating, caulking and tweaking inefficient heating and cooling systems and installing rooftop solar panels at the homes of low-income Portlanders.

As a rule, hated whites do not get to be “underserved.”

At its core, the concept transfers wealth from big corporations such as Walmart to low-income Portlanders of color.

It appears that only evil rich white people shop at Walmart, which will inevitably pass the higher cost of doing business in Portland along to its customers.

It’s a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). It’s also part of a larger political effort to reshape who calls the shots—and who benefits—in America’s whitest big city.

The racial animus driving envirosocialism is becoming explicit. The PCEF is largely the work of Jo Ann Hardesty, a hardcore moonbat known for her diseased bag lady appearance and her theatrical hatred of Caucasians (see here and here).

Hardesty, the first black woman to serve on the City Council and the self-described “mother of the Portland Clean Energy Fund,” promises she won’t let it fail.

If it does fail, there will be precedent:

Clean Energy Works snagged a $20 million federal stimulus grant in 2010 and became an independent nonprofit whose mission was to deploy minority contractors to make 100,000 homes energy efficient.

Obama’s “stimulus” looting spree wasted massive amounts of money on green energy boondoggles. The economic damage continues to unfold.

The program aimed to benefit underserved communities—just as the new tax does. …

The Energy Trust of Oregon, a nonprofit funded by utility ratepayers, found the program’s costs “significantly” higher than those of other contractors doing similar work without public funding.

Government programs tend to work that way.

By 2014, Clean Energy Works had spent the $20 million in federal stimulus money it received four years earlier. It then secured an additional $10 million state grant to keep going.

Like all socialist endeavors, Clean Energy Works soon ran out of other people’s money.

Although Clean Energy Works hoped to weatherize 100,000 homes, it only completed about 5,000.

The envirocommies say this time will be different, because they have learned a lesson:

The lesson from Clean Energy Works’ experience: Good intentions and an extensive background in the field were not enough to create an operation that could finance itself. What such a project needed instead was a spigot of money that couldn’t be turned off…

Who ever heard of a tax going away? “Big retailers” will pay a 1% surcharge on Portland sales to finance “climate justice” until the end of time. Even if every penny is wasted, there will always be more — at least in theory.

Queering Reality at Portland State University

Any topic whatsoever can be “queered” by the intellectual saboteurs who dominate universities. Portland State University has announced a course entitled “Queer Ecologies: Rethinking the Nature of Nature.” Topics include “queering settler colonialism,” “queering science,” and “queer environmental futurity.”

Via Breitbart:

“WGSS [Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies] faculty member Lisa Weasel will challenge students to consider how places, people, and practices come to be understood as ‘natural,’” elaborates the school’s website of the class. “What counts as ‘nature,’ and who has access and belonging there? How are categories and discourses of nature and the natural used in both liberatory and oppressive ways?”

“Oppressive” means “contrary to the progressive agenda.”

The Frankfurt School would be pleased that its Critical Theory strategy for destroying the West continues to thrive in various forms. The idea is to relentlessly question, criticize, and undermine everything, even the most fundamental aspects of reality. The ultraleft has implemented this strategy through its control of academia and the media. Its appalling success is reflected by the widespread acceptance of homosexuality and even transsexuality by many people as healthy and normal, a view held by virtually no one until recently. This degeneration has resulted from progressives’ relentless attack on morality and normalcy.

Lisa Weasel is Department Chair of WGSS. Her interests include feminist pedagogies, intersectionality, “food justice,” and the ominous-sounding “equity outcomes.”

PSU is a state university directly supported by taxpayer dollars.

Portland May Require New Buildings to Accommodate Homeless

The moonbats running Portland are approaching levels of leftist tyranny not seen since the Russian Revolution:

Under a proposal introduced to the PSC [Planning and Sustainability Commission] on Nov. 12, the building design process would require owners to “provide opportunities” to the homeless population “to rest and be welcome.” Many are interpreting the vague language—specifically the “rest and be welcome” requirements—as potentially forcing owners of new commercial and residential real estate to build “spaces” for homeless men and women to camp out on private property, even in apartment buildings. …

Oriana Magnera, who presented the idea, told her fellow commissioners the city needs “spaces where [homeless] folks can feel supported and safe.”

The next step is for the actual owners of the property to be evicted to make more room for the homeless. Refer to Ayn Rand’s We the Living to see how this worked in Russia.

Once property rights go out the window, all other rights will follow.

Urinals Banned in Portland Building

To the many things moonbats would take away from us in the name of political correctness, we can now ad urinals. From where else but Portland, via KGW8:

The City of Portland banned urinals in the remodeled Portland Building.

The 15-story Portland Building is also known as the Portland Municipal Services Building; it scurries with bureaucrats of the City of Portland.

Urinals are wrong because their existence reinforces the difference between male and female. This undermines liberal ideology and could be hurtful to the sacred sexually perplexed.

In an email to employees last February, Chief Administrative Officer Tom Rinehart wrote:

“We will continue to have gender-specific (male and female) multi-stall restrooms that are readily available to any employee that prefers to use one. But, there will be no urinals in any restroom in the building. This will give us the flexibility we need for any future changes in signage.”

Already some of the bathrooms will be for men and women to use together, like in utopia. Those that are still segregated won’t be for long, so why allow urinals?

Urinals take up less space, use less water, make for shorter lines, et cetera. But leftist social engineering always comes first where leftists have secured control.

Antifa Chaos in Portland

Washington Examiner reporter Julio Rosas attempted to cover the Antifa chaos in Portland in response to right-wing demonstrations yesterday. The American flag on his shirt was found to be offensive by an Antifa freakazoid of incomprehensible gender:

Later Rosas was extricated by police to avoid violence:

Others were not lucky enough to find police protection from Antifa:

No worries; the moonbats running Portland are sure to get everything in hand. On Friday they arrested Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer for rioting. Patriot Prayer has been violently targeted by Antifa goons. Somehow, the arrest of Gibson — who was not connected with yesterday’s events — failed to prevent Antifa violence, but no doubt ultraleft Mayor Ted Wheeler is trying his best.

Actually, Antifa is spiraling out of control. Liberal authorities and the media are letting it happen, content to let Antifa serve as a cat’s paw to intimidate opposition.

Portland Library Hides Drag Queen Story Hour Photos

The nationwide drag queen story hour phenomenon has featured perverts with rap sheets for sex crimes against children dressing up in women’s clothes to promote the LGBT agenda to little kids at public libraries (e.g., Albert Garza, William Travis Dees). Now we read this:

A public library has deleted photos of small children lying on top of drag queens and fondling their false breasts at a Drag Queen Story Hour.

Multnomah County Library, the library system serving Portland, Oregon, quietly removed from Flickr the photos of the Drag Queen Story Hour that took place at St. John’s Library and then circulated on Facebook…

The event took place last October, featuring a deviant named Anthony Hudson who calls himself “Carla Rossi.” Its stated target audience was “children 2–6 years old.”

LifeSiteNews has archived photos that the social engineers running the library don’t want you to see.

There were more:

Photos posted by the library also reveal toddlers and young boys dressed in feather boas at the event.

If these “grooming” efforts are successful, there will be plenty more kids like “Desmond Is Amazing,” “Queen Lactacia,” and “Kween KeeKee” to serve as trophy transsexuals for woke parents and sex objects for perverts.

There are laws against endangering the welfare of a child. The LGBT agenda apparently overrides them.

Savage Antifa Beating in Portland

Bad as it was for Andy Ngo, he did not get the worst of it when Antifa was allowed to go wild once again in Portland Saturday. A pair of countermoonbats named John Blum and Adam Kelly were present in support of Haley Adams, who had previously been assaulted by Antifa. Adams is the leader of Him Too, which defends men from phony #MeToo allegations of the type leveled at Brett Kavanaugh. Blum and Kelly were set upon by Antifa vermin. They were attacked with mace, nunchucks, metal water bottles, a metal rod, and fists. One of the attackers appeared to be wielding a padlock in a sock or something similar.

Behold leftism on display:

Where are the police, you ask? In Portland, the police take orders from the very wokest of the woke, so the streets belong to Antifa.

Someone is going to get killed by these animals. Antifa has gotten out of hand. Mayor Ted Wheeler seems to like it that way.

Portland Sucker Punch

Warning: the video below is disturbing in the extreme. A brutal sucker punch demonstrates what it means for the corrosion known as moonbattery to cause civilization to start to break down:

The mainstream media as a rule does not report black on white violence, so we turn to Andy Ngo:

This happened this week in Portland, Ore. with absolutely no media coverage. Steps away from the iconic Voodoo Doughnut in downtown, Daniel Tuski Bertrand suddenly attacks a woman. Her eye socket was ”crushed,” says a source. The man was only charged with a misdemeanor & released without having to pay bail.

For an editorial take, the mainstream media’s silence forces us to turn to the Burning Platform:

This is what the media wants. Whites are the new Kulaks. The constant White demonization results in this. How do you think the low IQ blacks interpret the refrain that “Whiteness must be eradicated; Whiteness is violence; Whiteness is racist“? They simply hear “Whites are bad. Attack them.” The media keep amping up the hatred, and yet will this brutal attack make the news?

To learn the answer, plug Daniel Tuski Bertrand into a Google News search. Currently all it returns is a foreign news source, the Daily Mail, which confirms that the woman’s eye socket was broken, and informs us that Bertrand is a Person of Homelessness in addition to possessing preferred pigmentation. It is horrifying yet unsurprising that he is already back on the street.

Combine the liberal establishment’s perpetual Two Minutes Hate targeting Caucasians with the legions of mentally ill drug fiends who have been encouraged to dominate the major cities of the Left Coast and it is a wonder that such incidents do not occur every hour.
