OPINION – I don’t know what is more stunning, the fact that this kid is surprised that he has no lethal munitions used against him when part of, what I see as an insurrection, or thinking his explanation was going to get him sympathy …
A rioter in Portland claims that police shot him with a bean bag while he was “peacefully protesting.”
The doe eyed gaslighting and false profession of his innocence is the oldest trick in the book. But, at least most are smart enough not to get caught in the act … just not this guy.
But then again if he was smart, he likely wouldn’t be helping enkindle fires on federal property in the middle of a riot, but hey what do I know, that’s likely just my white privilege talking. He claimed he was banging on the fence, chanting “Black Lives Matter” and “All cops are bas*^#ds.”
Antifa and BLM have been attacking the courthouse for a while now then they complain when the Feds defend themselves.
Things will not get better in Portland as long as Ted Wheeler is mayor which may not be for much longer. I would imagine that Property values in Portland are dropping like a rock and seeing as he he is up for reelection this year, and even the rioters hate him, he is likely on his was out the door … on a rail.
The rioter claims he was hit six times with bean bags as he was talking to Blaze reporter, Elijah Schaffer.
Schaffer asked him if he was the same peaceful protester that was involved in starting/enkindling a fire at the courthouse.
The unidentified rioter said no, not knowing that Schaffer filmed him as he was setting the fire.
When you watch the video it seems clear that the man is either very intoxicated or suffering from some sort of mental condition.
The Gateway Pundit opined:
“They tried to snatch me, they pulled out zipties, shot me with bean bags,” he said. “They tried to steal me.”
When asked by Schaffer if he was the same guy who had tried to start a fire, the man said no and suddenly tried to get his friend away from the interview.
“He failed to mention that he was also an arsonist who built an illegal fire on federal property,” Schaffer tweeted with a video of him fanning the flames.
These kids have no sense of reality. It’s quite scary really. Who raised them? Have they never read a single history book? I fear for my kids future if these are the people who will be ‘leading’ them … down a trail of tears no doubt.
