Police arrested eight people on Wednesday in connection with Antifa and BLM rioters damaging both federal and private property.
The protests began following the inauguration of President Biden, who largely ignored left-wing rioters for the last six months.
Wednesday afternoon a group of at least 150 people marched to the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Oregon and vandalized the building with graffiti, broke windows, and set dumpsters on fire.
Charges for the eight arrests included criminal mischief and possession of a destructive device. Police seized weapons including Molotov cocktails, knives, batons, chemical spray, and more.
Wednesday night, the group marched to the Portland office of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Rioters were armed with tasers, pepper balls, fireworks, shields, and rocks.
When federal police arrived to protect the facility, rioters threw rocks at officers and sprayed graffiti on the building. Federal officers used crowd control munitions to control the crowd.
No word yet if this attack will be considered “insurgency” from “domestic terrorists” as the attack on the Capitol was categorized.
There were no reports of “right wing” rioters in the country yesterday, although widely advertised to be imminent by the main stream media.
