A leftist protest turned into a riot when individuals started holding up traffic and attacking elderly motorists. Fox News reports:
Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland bully an elderly motorist, verbally attack a senior citizen in a wheelchair and disrupt traffic during a weekend demonstration caught in a series of stunning videos — that also show no police presence as the chaos unfolds.
The group of more than 100 people initially began marching through the streets of the Oregon city Saturday to protest the death of Patrick Kimmons, who was fatally shot by police Sept. 30 after a gunfight that left two men wounded at a parking lot near Southwest Third Avenue.
“We’re not here to riot. We’re here for justice,” Charles Kimmons, a family member, told The Oregonian/Oregon Live at the rally. “We need to fight this all the way to the end. These cops need to be locked up.”
But soon, videos show some members of the group verbally harassing passersby and drivers, and other demonstrators attempting to direct and disrupt traffic. In one video taken by Portland-based videographer Brandon Farley, the self-appointed traffic cops are heard telling drivers to go around the protesters. Most drivers turn away, however, at least one person objects to changing his route and asks why he should.
This is yet another reason why Democrats will not win – because they keep encouraging lawless extremists like this.
