Unity? Antifa Rioters Didn’t Get Inauguration Memo

In his Inauguration Address to the nation, Joe Biden asked the country to end “this uncivil war,” and for the “unity” to “do great things and right wrongs.”

Progressives like CNN’s Van Jones squeed about how beautiful the speech was, and how beauty heals.

“That was beautiful. You know, beauty heals. Beauty heals. There was not one part of that that wasn’t just medicine in the wound. And if you have any doubt that one person can make a difference, that one person’s voice, one person’s commitment, one person’s bedrock faith can be the pivot point for a nation, just watch that speech again and look at how the country responds.”

Well, some people in the country didn’t respond too well to Biden’s speech. But that would’ve been those hardcore Trump supporters, right?

Um, no. Because just as Biden and Harris were taking their oaths of office, Antifa/BLM types in Denver were burning flags outside the Colorado State Capitol in Denver. Apparently they didn’t get that unity memo.

The “We Bash Back” crew also assaulted two street preachers who showed up to protest abortion. So much for unity and the beauty that heals.

However, the Denver stunts were small potatoes compared to the Inauguration Day events in. . . you guessed it. . . Portland.

Prior to the Inauguration, Antifa in Portland had already made plans for “direct action” — that is, riots. They arranged to meet at the aptly-named Revolution Hall in the so-called “J20” demonstration to protest the Inauguration and police, while also demonstrating for indigenous peoples rights.

Oh, and f*** Biden, too.

So about 100? 200? protesters — depends on whom you ask — set out on the beleaguered streets of Portland to protest All The Things. They carried signs that bragged “We Are Ungovernable” and called for “A New World From the Ashes” — whatever that means. They didn’t want that Joe Biden unity; instead they want revenge for “police murders, imperialist wars, and fascist massacres.”

Naturally, this being Portland, these protests wouldn’t be complete without destruction and mayhem. Thus, they smashed windows and painted anarchist graffiti on. . . get this. . . the Democrat Party headquarters.

Here are the goons in action. They also brought umbrellas to avoid being captured on surveillance cameras.

Portland police tweeted this:

“Officers have observed people in the area of Revolution Hall take an officers bicycle and throw objects at retreating officers.”

Hold on — retreating officers? So why are Portland’s finest backing away from the mob? Well, what would you expect in a city run by Mayor Ted Wheeler — a soy boy who was clocked by a protestor while he was dining at a restaurant two weeks ago. He apparently prefers beta male behavior in his police force.

But Portland wasn’t the only city whose protesters didn’t get Biden’s unity memo. In Washington State, reporters were rejoicing that the State Capitol in Olympia was peaceful during the Inauguration. None of those right-wing Trump-lovin’ militants showed up to raise hell in the Evergreen State.

Except protesters showed up to raise hell in Seattle, and they weren’t Trump supporters, either. Once again, Antifa caused chaos, this time in downtown Seattle in their version of a J20 protest. They burned American flags, vandalized the U.S. Court House and stores — including an Amazon Go store where they spray-painted “Guillotine Bezos.” Their chant? “No cops, no prisons, total abolition.” Plus, they want to “f*** Biden,” too.

Last summer the media would’ve called this a “mostly peaceful protest.”

So what about the unity? Or the beauty that heals? Or the gushing, mawkish praise for Biden’s speech emanating from the media’s circle jerk? Especially because the Orange Man is now gone.

Apparently none of that inspired Antifa to give up their rage and instead love their fellow Americans in a Kumbaya moment. Because such violence was never about Donald Trump, nor was it even about George Floyd or race or fascism. As for those people who thought that a Biden presidency would take away all the nation’s bad feelings — sorry, you got played.

Rather, this chaos is about hate for America. Hate for her traditions and for people who love her. Joe Biden’s flowery sentiments about unity in his inaugural speech don’t mean a hill of beans to people who just want to see America burn.

    None of that anarchy penetrated the media’s portrayal of Dr Biden’s fabulouso style! And your ten principles of conservativism need to be broadly disseminated, IMO!

    Oh Lil’ Kim, you don’t get out much do you? People who know anything about Antifa and the anarchist type goons in Portland didn’t expect them to stop with Biden’s presidency. There is a core group of around 100-200 people in Portland who like to demonstrate, fight and destroy property. It doesn’t matter to them which party controls the presidency. They just like to cause problems. This is a commonly known fact in Portland according to a couple people I know who live there. Perhaps the biggest part of the problem in Portland is that the district attorney usually does not charge these Antifa-anarchist goons with property crimes, so they keep doing it. If you want to complain about what has been going on in Portland, call out the district attorney. No president, whether it would be Trump or Biden, would have any influence on these people’s actions. The district attorney, on the other hand, could probably have some influence and lessen their destructiveness if he chose to do so. I’m glad to help you out with this information. Maybe next time you can do a little research so your feelings don’t override the facts.

    Oh 3Q (just one short of . . . oh, never mind) so are you suggesting that the DA is “at fault” NOW, when perhaps he was OK when he made the same decision before last Nov 3?
