Portland: The Latest Monument To Be Torn Down By Unruly Mob, Draped In Burning American Flag

(Tea Party PAC) – If this isn’t the perfect image of where our nation is at right now.

A statue of one of our great founding fathers, torn down and draped in a burning American flag by people who enjoy the freedoms this nation has afforded them and nonetheless resent the blessing of living in the United States.

Doesn’t that just about sum up 2020 so far?

In Portland, Oregon on Thursday evening a statue of George Washington, the first president of this fine republic, was torn down and draped in the aforementioned flaming flag by “protesters.”

KOIN 6 reports:

Thursday marked the 21st day of protests in Portland sparked by the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Two groups — Rose City Justice and Lavender Caucus — hosted a sit-in rally at Jefferson High School in the evening where community members shared their experiences with racism to a crowd of a few hundred. The group did not hold a march.

A separate group of about 20 people met at NE Sandy Boulevard and NE 57th Avenue around 10 p.m. at the site of a large bronze statue of George Washington. Some wrapped the statue’s head in an American flag and lit the flag on fire. Their numbers grew over the next hour until there were enough people to pull the statue to the ground. They quickly scattered. A KOIN 6 News crew found the statue face down and covered in graffiti. Portland police arrived a short time later.

Chilling footage of the incident flooded social media:

Breitbart notes:

The statue, which was situated in front of Jefferson High School, was yanked down following a protest against police brutality organized by Rose City Justice.

“There’s an interesting piece of history up here… Mr. Thomas is all beside himself,” one protester said of the statue being toppled.

“We’re taking this city back,” the organizer added. “One school at a time. One racist statue at a time.”

The toppling of the Washington statue comes as historical monuments across the country have been targeted in the wake of protests and violent unrest sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis on Memorial Day.

  4. Unbelievable that these people are so venemous that they are desecrating our flag and our statues, looting and rioting, injuring the police and 92 year old women, and haven’t been thrown in jail! If a person would steal a loaf of bread, they’d be arrested for shoplifting, but these Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA get away with anything and everything and it’s gone too far and for too long. Put an end to this lawlessness and let the police do their job!!! Disgusting and if they hope to bring people to healing and peace, they certainly need a better way to go about it!

  5. Enough is enough; these despicable people who have gone to far. Round all of them up, and their parents and teachers (after all thjey are the ones who taught them this anti-American nonsense. If you aren’t proud of this country Get Out!) also and ship them all to Venezuela without passports.

  6. Isn’t there some way to stop this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a retired history teacher and seeing this just makes me sick.

  7. To be truthful about this disgusting BS with the demoshit ‘leaders’ (what a crock of shit even to have to call them leaders !!! ) I LITERALLY would NOT piss on their face if their face were on FIRE – and THAT’S ABSOLUTELY N O BS !!!

  8. Who tries to rewrite and revise history by tearing down and vandalizing monuments? ISIS, the Taliban, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Ghengis Kahn and other war mongers in the past. Today it’s communist Antifa, BLM and LGBT activists.

  9. How can tearing down HISTORY be the defining moment of taking back a city….and while we’re on the subject…..TAKING IT BACK FROM WHOM?

  10. So Sad to see this Happening during any protest !!! Protesting peaceable I don’t have a Problem with . Vandalising & destroying history is the most disgusting act of all !!! So but the upbringing & education of these individuals comes into question> Patriotism is lost with this generation , never to return !!! So sad , never thought this day would come !!!

    • HERE’S A GOOD QUESTION …”I just watched the Democratic leaders of Congress kneel in the halls of Congress for about 9 minutes, for the death of a black man named George Floyd.

      I have never seen them kneel for a fallen Police Officer. I have never seen them kneel for a fallen Soldier.

      I NEVER SAW THEM KNEEL FOR THE SOLDIERS THAT HILLARY AND OBAMA LEFT TO DIE IN Benghazi!!

      I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of (black and white) babies aborted EVERY DAY.

      I have never seen them kneel for a murdered white man or woman. I have not seen them kneel for the thousands of black-on-black murder victims.

      I have not seen them kneel for the thousands of elderly people that died in nursing homes due to the Corona Virus.

      I have to ask: WHY are Democrats putting the life of George Floyd as more valuable than the lives of everyone else?

      In fact, Democrats have put so much value on the life of George Floyd, they have allowed rioting, looting, arson, murder and mayhem in communities Nationwide…

      ASK YOURSELF – WHY NOW?”

  11. My buddy’s wife makes $78 hourly on the computer. She has been fired for 6 months ..but last month her check was $14758 just working on the computer for a few hours…..
