The police and Feds left the protesters alone last night and the crowd was overwhelmingly….

…calm.

Turns out, if you don’t abuse people, they don’t lash out. Who knew?

You can take your toy soldiers home now, ya orange bastard.

What the Portland protesters left behind

by allthoughtswork

The police did a sweep and cleared out the protesters’ camp early this morning. This used to be a little park with green grass and flowers. Not sure how this helps the cause.

It should be interesting to see tonight’s retaliation.

Portland, Oregon, broke a heat record yesterday

SUMMER HEAT QUOTES FUNNY image quotes at relatably.com

Yup, we cleared 100° F (37.7° C) on July 26 for the first time in 22 years. Well, the Portland International Airport did, that’s where they take the official reading. The reading in my backyard was somewhere between Damn! and Areyoufuckingkiddingme? but it’s been higher.

All this must have made the riots downtown extra special; I hear tear gas gets particularly delicious when it mixes with sweat. FYI, they aren’t just gassing mayors, moms, dads, and grannies now, they’ve branched out into veterans, too. Proof positive the Trump administration doesn’t discriminate.

Trump scurries into bunker as Washington burns

Yup, a rat will always find its hole. No mention whether this particular rat bothered to make sure his family got in there safely with him. That’s called consistency.

Also consistent is his surprise that race riots could get so severe so quickly. I mean, you shit on a people for centuries, blame them for the bruises they sustain at your hands, lie to them, ridicule them, deny them a voice and agency, and then take away their livelihood and freedom during a viral pandemic lockdown that turns the mental and emotional pressure cooker up to an eleven. Who knew they’d get desperate?

What a complete asshole.

Say, didn’t Hitler end it all in a bunker with his main squeeze and a gun? Maybe the White House should stock that thing with cyanide and a Luger, you know, for old time’s sake. Keepin’ it real.
