Denver, Portland Suffer Violent Weekend Of Anarchic Protests

Denver and Portland suffered another weekend of anarchic militants savaging their downtown city centers as protests in each major city continue to wreak havoc on communities, destroy businesses, and terrorize residents.

In Portland, police declared another riot in the city’s north precinct in what has become routine practice since the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police in May. On Sunday however, protestors invoked the name of Jacob Blake, the victim in the latest police shooting that took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin early in the evening. Blake is in stable condition, according to his family’s attorney.

Paying homage to their anarchic heroes from the French Revolution who beheaded about 17,000 for the crime of dissent amid the Reign of Terror in the late 18th century, the Portland protestors severed a burning American flag under the blade of the guillotine, the primary execution device of their French revolutionary ancestors.

Further east in Denver, rioters destroyed homes and businesses in the name of social justice on Saturday. One mob set fire to the Denver police headquarters.

“They brought weapons to the table. They had guns. They brought explosives, axes, machetes, and had one intent purpose and that was to harm our officers,” said Denver’s Public Safety Director Murphy Robinson in a Sunday press conference. “I want these anarchists to hear me clearly and loudly that this will not be tolerated in our city. You are not welcome here.”

According to a local Denver CBS affiliate, 12 arrests were made and one citation was issued where charges included obstruction, criminal mischief, and injury to an officer.
