Portland is just the first city to experience this level of crazy from the trump administration/re-election campaign trying to impress magas with his twisted version of “law & order,” as doled out by a secret police force with no identification or accountability. Crrraaaaazzzzy.. isn’t this exactly the kind of poop that gets other countries invaded by the USA for mistreating their citizens? :?

Yes, bc as we all know, the way to end these grievances against government violence is...more government violence.

Remember how police crackdowns on protesters just added to their determination? You're going to see more of that. And Trump will just crack down harder and harder bc he's too much of a pusillanimous to consider addressing the root of these grievances. It just gets American citizens killed and imprisoned, and sweeps the problem of government violence under the rug for future generations to worry about (like mine). This has been a problem in this country for centuries and violent crackdowns are not a real solution. How many do they think will need to die before they're too afraid to protest? Dozens? Hundreds? More? That blood will be on the hands of this regime and its supporters.

Do you favor these crackdowns? Then you are guaranteeing more riots and protests in the future. You are more scared of riots in the short term than you are of federal tyranny in the long run. Foolishness. Music to the authoritarians' ears.

Fear-based politics might get any of us killed.

Go back in time 8-12 years and change the headline to "Obama plans to send feds into Republican towns/states" to stop violent conservative protests. We would see conservative armed insurrections across the country. They're damn lucky more of these protesters don't exercise their 2nd amendment rights.
They seem to think these things wouldn't happen to them bc they're too 'well-behaved' or they're 'good citizens'. The naivete is staggering. Do not accept this as precedent. If not for our sake, then for yours.

Everyone should be disgusted by this.

it requires a sense of decency to be offended by the offensive. many amuuuricans can't muster any sense of decency, at least until it happens to them personally, or somebody close to them.

Oh, we've got them here in my neck of the woods in Washington state, too. But there are also good people who I hope will stand up to them.

Trump hates protesters so much he is now sending in troops to take care of them to shut them up.

Soooooo super cray that you’re probably right on this. :/ Wild times.

Thankful that the border is mostly closed rn - although I really don’t expect maga violence to spill over the border w/ them coming to attack Canadians at all. Gonna be a total s**t show for everyone in the USA, though.
