• More Portland Mayhem: Trump Supporter Gunned Down, Radicals Gleeful About It

    Surge Summary: A Trump Supporter was shot and killed on the streets of Portland Saturday night as a Pro-Trump group clashed with Leftist Radicals. Afterwards, anti-Trump forces celebrated the victim’s death. This type of act has not come out of nowhere – Progressives’ hostility toward conservatives and Trump voters for many months has created an atmosphere conducive to such violence.

    In Portland [Saturday] night, a Blue Lives Matter supporter and a member of the Patriot Prayer group was shot and killed.  The alleged assassin posted on social media that he is “100% ANTIFA all the way.”

    Gabriel Johnson, a black resident of Portland, told Fox News [Monday] morning that he left his apartment to find out what happened in his neighborhood [Saturday] night.  He was sickened to find people celebrating that a Trump supporter had been murdered.

    They were dancing with their fists in the air, yelling that they had killed a “fascist” and a “Nazi.”  This is what Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has allowed to fester in his city.

    What happened in Portland wasn’t an isolated incident.  Trump supporters were holding a rally on Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles when someone opened fire on them from an apartment building.

    How did we get here?  Well, this is what happens after decades of demonization.

    Pro-life activists and conservative Christians who believe in the traditional meaning of marriage have been called “fascists” and “the American Taliban” for years.

    The media cheers whenever conservatives are run out of restaurants or harassed at their homes.  By the way, it’s happening now to ordinary Americans simply trying to enjoy a night out.

    When some Americans defended historical memorials, the media and the left united to condemn those people as bigots and haters.

    When Bibles were being thrown into the Portland bonfires, there was no dissent from the “mainstream” opinion makers.  We all know what would have happened if Korans had been thrown into the fire.

    Today’s left has no respect for freedom of speech and free thought.  That’s why Antifa feels justified in attacking conservatives and silencing conservative speakers.  That’s why leftists feel justified in forcing Americans attempting to eat dinner to bow to their demands.

    But now the left insists that all this left-wing violence is really Donald Trump’s fault.  And I suppose Christians and Jews all over America are somehow responsible for their churches and synagogues being vandalized and burned down too.
