And in the real insurrection, from Vicky Taft at PJ Media, Portland BLM/Antifa Draw Guns on Drivers to Enforce No-Go Zone in Broad Daylight
Portland’s revolutionaries from Black Lives Matter and antifa took over a busy street at noon on Thursday and pulled guns on drivers who dared try to dart past the mob. It was holding a rally for a gangland shooter who was killed by police in 2018. That shooting was ruled justified; more below.
The chaotic scene included guns being drawn on white drivers by the multiracial BLM and antifa protesters and one driver drew his own weapon in reply. Someone deployed pepper spray.
A driver was reportedly beaten and held against his will, another had his back window destroyed and shots of some sort were fired by the AK-47 and AR-15 wielding terrorists. Multiple sharp sounds were heard followed by the sound of whooshing air after the militants flattened the tires of a car the gun-wielding crowd had forced to stop. The man was “aided” to the sidewalk, as a live streamer put it (see the video below).
The driver in the video above had his keys, gun, and tools stolen out of his truck, according to Portland police who finally showed up to take a report in response to an apparently false claim that someone had been hit by one of the cars.
Today, armed #BLM protesters in Portland shut down the road. They beat up this older man & stole his gun. Additionally, the rioters smashed out windows of another vehicle. One person was transported to hospital. Police made no arrests. #antifa pic.twitter.com/FS5guM41ap— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) May 7, 2021
