Protesters burn Bibles and American flags at Portland riots

Political News



Protests and riots have been waged in Portland for over two months since the death of George Floyd. During Friday night’s protests, demonstrators exhibited their rage by burning Bibles and American flags.

In the street outside of the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse, protesters set bibles and American flags on fire. Video shows demonstrators create a bonfire in the street, and protesters with “Black Lives Matter” signs toss Bibles into the inferno.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) retweeted the Bible-burning video with the caption, “This is who they are.”

Donald Trump Jr. commented on the video of Bibles being set on fire. “Now we move to the book burning phase,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’m pretty sure ANTIFA doesn’t actually stand for what they say it stands for. Maybe just remove the anti part of them name and it’s perfect.”

Conservative activist Mindy Robinson said, “They’ve finally gone full Gestapo, never go full Gestapo.”

Besides burning Bibles, the demonstrators also set American flags on fire, some demonstrators chant: “F*** Trump!”

Protesters dumped garbage in front of the Justice Center and battered the garage door of the courthouse to agitate federal officers. Rioters also set large fires around downtown Portland.

One rioter nearly burned his own face after igniting a firework.

There was a shooting in Portland on Friday night where more than 150 rounds were fired, one hitting a woman.

“East Precinct officers have secured the crime scene and determined that more that 150 rounds were fired outside of an apartment building,” the Portland Police Bureau stated. “One round struck an adult female victim in an arm. Responding officers applied a tourniquet and she was transported to the hospital by ambulance with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries have been reported to police, however bullets struck at least 8 occupied apartments and 7 vehicles (unknown if occupied).”

During Thursday night’s demonstrations, agitators set fire to a severed pig’s head that was wearing a police officer hat outside the Justice Center in downtown Portland.

Last weekend, the violence was much more intense, and the Portland Police Department declared a riot by early Sunday morning. Rioters tore down the fence outside of the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse. “The violent conduct of people downtown is creating grave risk of public alarm,” the Portland Police Department stated.

Fox News reporter William La Jeunesse was embedded with federal officers in Portland for 12 hours this week. He witnessed officers get attacked with lasers and fireworks.

“It’s really loud and very disconcerting when you’re on the inside,” he said. “And these things, when they burn up in front of you, they burn agents’ legs and arms and neck, stuff like that. They’ve got to go in for treatment.”

  5. They were rioting and burning in Portland long before Floyd died. The Mayor and Governor, by their inaction, have contributed to the problem. Protect Federal property and do not worry about anything the MSM may say.
    We know what they will say, Trump screwed up again. That record is getting old and worn out but it sells advertisement.

  6. They are just fulfilling what the Bible states in Luke 17:26-32, Jesus said, V.26, “And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. (Genesis Chapters 6) V.27, They did eat ,they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. V.28, Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted,they builded; V.29, But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. V.30, Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. V.31, In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away; and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back, V.32, Remember Lot’s wife.” This is just a forerunner of what is coming down the road, so the true born again washed in the blood of Jesus, can prepare to turn loose of everything of this world, regardless of what it is.
