Oregon Governor Finally Calls In National Guard to Respond to Portland Riots

This week has been one of the most disgraceful in all of American history, so naturally, idiots in Portland were rioting.

From the first evening of post-election riots:

Well, this is apparently what it took to finally prompt Oregon’s Democrat Governor, Kate Brown, to send in the National Guard.

Newsmax reports that Brown deployed the troops in response to “widespread violence” following Tuesday’s election despite having ignored calls to do just this for the last five months as rioters have been destroying public and private property and carrying out coordinated assaults on police officers.

“Widespread violence is occurring in Downtown Portland,” the Multnomah County Sheriff’s office announced in a Twitter pot on Wednesday. “In the interest of public safety, Governor Kate Brown, under advice of the Unified Command, has activated the use of the Oregon National Guard to assist local law enforcement in responding to any acts of violence, and to maintain public order and ensure community safety.”

Local Fox affiliate KPTV reported that among the buildings vandalized was a church that houses and provides services for homeless men and women struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues and social media posts showed a “feminist-owned, queer-affirming small business” was also not spared the wrath of the “anti-fascists.”

Riots had been ongoing in the city for over 90 consecutive nights before the poor air quality due to wildfires drove the activists indoors.

Brown, for her part, has spent more energy criticizing President Donald Trump for sending in the federal troops and joining many top Democrats around the country in downplaying the far-left violence for the sake of affirming the same rhetoric these street terrorists employ themselves.

I guess now that the election has come and gone, however, the idiots in the street aren’t useful anymore?
