The mask is off – the left has declared war on America. Violence, insurrection, lawsuits, voter fraud, propaganda …. they will use every tool in their treasonous toolbox to bring down this counter-revolution.
ACLU and Oregon Sue Trump to Stop Arrests of Antifa
By Victoria Taft, PJM, July 18, 2020:
Oregon officials have claimed a side. They’ve chosen the violent rioters of antifa and Black Lives Matter over the civil rights interests of citizens of the City of Portland.
The state of Oregon and the ACLU have filed lawsuits demanding the Trump administration from arresting and questioning the violent antifa and Black Lives Matter terrorists who have conducted nightly riots for the last 50 nights.
Riven by the more than six weeks of nightly rioting, the Trump administration sent federal police from several different agencies to defend the federal courthouse in downtown Portland. In one wild night, federal police officers from the Department of Homeland Security, Border Patrol, and other agencies battled antifa terrorists lobbing IEDs, rocks, and bottles and shining lasers in the eyes of officers. Police battled for six hours to keep the terrorists from getting inside the glass door they’d earlier shattered.
Reportedly starting July 14, the federal officers have stopped and questioned suspected black bloc-attired antifa militants in the middle of the night. They attempted to set up yet another “autonomous zone” right across the street from the federal courthouse.
Rioters report questioning from feds using “unmarked cars”
The Oregon Department of Justice lawsuit claims that federal officers using “unmarked cars” to spirit away and question suspected antifa members violated their civil rights. Taking the word of the suspected antifa terrorist Mark Pettibone, the attorney general accuses the federal agencies of not having probable cause to stop him in his black bloc attire in the middle of the night.
The DOJ lawsuit specifically highlighted the case of Mark Pettibone, a demonstrator who was snatched off the street by federal officers in the early hours of July 16, put into a van, and brought to the federal courthouse.
“On information and belief, defendants did not have a warrant to seize Pettibone or the other citizens who have been detained, and will continue to seize individuals off the street without a warrant, in the absence of an injunction,” the lawsuit reads.
Furthermore, the AG, Ellen Rosenblum, contends that because the antifa and BLM rioters don’t know what specific agency the federal cops are from, which the Border Patrol disputes, it leaves the terrorists subject to kidnapping from bad actors who may pretend to be police. She really said that.
Due to both federal agents and their vehicles being unmarked, the lawsuit states that Oregonians could be at risk of kidnapping by “militias and other civilian ‘volunteers’ taking it onto themselves to pull peaceful protesters into their cars, in a manner that resembles the federal actions described…”
Rioters get help from Oregon ACLU
The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon’s interim legal director, Kelly Simon, asks for federal police to be rounded up and thrown out of the City of Portland.
“These federal agents must be stopped and removed from our city,” Simon added. “We will continue to bring the full fire power of the ACLU to bear until this lawless policing ends.”
“This is a fight to save our democracy,” Kelly Simon, interim legal director with the ACLU of Oregon, said in a statement. “Under the direction of the Trump administration, federal agents are terrorizing the community, risking lives, and brutally attacking protesters demonstrating against police brutality.
It should be noted here that the ACLU has been asked but has never lifted a finger to help victims of antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters’ violence, such as journalists Michael Strickland or Andy Ngo.
