compares her with the FEMEN crowd:
ADDED: Consider the protest group FEMEN — which I've blogged about before. Its website says:You won't end racism, war and poverty if you don't go naked!
In the beginning, there was the body, feeling of the woman’s body, feeling of joy because it is so light and free. Then there was injustice, so sharp that you feel it with your body, it immobilizes the body, hinders its movements, and then you find yourself your body’s hostage. And so you turn your body against this injustice, mobilizing every body’s cell to struggle against the patriarchy and humiliation. You tell the world: Our God is a Woman!Browse through over 4,000 photographs of FEMEN activists at Getty Images.
Our Mission is Protest!
Our Weapon are bare breasts!

Meanwhile another woman (well, sort of) from Portland Calls For “Abolition Of The United States”, Silence From Mainstream Media (Karen Townsend at Hot Air).
The protests that began with Black Lives Matter in Portland, Oregon have turned into Antifa riots. There is nothing peaceful about them, only destruction and chaos. This is the plan. Saturday one organizer clearly stated the goal – the abolition of the United States as we know it. It doesn’t get much clearer than that.
A woman named Lilith Sinclair who describes herself as “an Afro-Indigenous non-binary local organizer” in Portland spoke to demonstrators and announced the mission. Her little rant first became known to me on Twitter from the account of a Blaze TV show host and from Andy Ngo’s account. I’m not the only one who noticed it. Interestingly enough, there was no noticeable reaction from any mainstream media Twitter accounts over something that was clearly a call for treason from Sinclair. While Jazz noted the lack of media attention, I noticed the member of the clergy standing behind Sinclair who was nodding in agreement with her.

Meanwhile, the Democrats worry that reluctance to tear down statues of Confederate leaders to stand is treasonous.
Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.At this point, it might not be a bad idea to let Portland declare itself autonomous, and cut off it's food, water and electricity for a while. As long as they take a thin strip of land down the center of the Willamette Valley, to encompass Salen, Corvallis and Eugene with them.
