Man Set On Fire In Portland As Rioters Commemorate 100th Night Of “Mostly Peaceful Protests”
(Tea Party 247) – The word “peaceful” is one of nuance and varying interpretations. Some people think that if something is “peaceful” it means that it’s free of disturbance and is tranquil but that’s just one potential meaning for the word. Another way the word “peaceful” can be used in 21st century woke America is to describe the nightly riots that have been going on in cities across the country for over three months.
“Peaceful” can include actions like lighting candles and having a moment of silence as well as burning down and looting local businesses, vandalizing and tearing down statues and monuments, flipping and setting cars on fire, violently attacking the police and anyone who disagrees with you, and even lighting other human beings on fire.
Portland had yet another “peaceful protest” Saturday night, marking the 100th night of “peaceful protests” to plague the city. In commemoration of reaching this milestone the friendly and well-meaning extremists threw Molotov cocktails which resulted in one man being peacefully and lovingly lit on fire.
According to police, rioters hurled “multiple fire bombs, mortars, rocks, and other items” at officers Saturday night. Sure does sound like a fun-filled, peaceful family event.
ABC News has more details on the night:
One of the homemade bombs caught a community member on fire. Medics offered treatment at the scene, and the injured individual was later taken to a hospital by a private vehicle, according to a press release from the Portland Police Bureau.
“This criminal activity presented an extreme danger to life safety for all community members, and prompted a declaration of a riot,” the law enforcement agency said in a statement early Sunday.
More than 50 people were arrested overnight, including at least two who were clad in body armor. One individual was armed with a dagger while another had a knife, police said. The names of those arrested and their charges were not immediately released.
Video posted on social media shows what appears to be a Molotov cocktail being thrown into the middle of crowd and exploding into flames on a residential street. One person’s legs appears to catch fire as they run away.
The video shows police in riot gear using flash-bang grenades while making loudspeaker announcements, ordering people to disperse the area. Some demonstrators are seen setting off fireworks in the street as police advance.

Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of these peaceful demonstrations, no doubt.
ABC News continues:
A sergeant was struck by a commercial-grade firework, which burned through his glove and injured his hand, according to the Portland Police Bureau. Several other law enforcement officers were hit by rocks in the head, arms, shoulders and feet, with only their protective gear preventing serious injury, police said.
Meanwhile, an Oregon State Police vehicle was damaged by rocks, including broken windows and dents.
The Portland Police Bureau said “it was clear that the intent of the crowd was not peaceful protest,” as many people were carrying large shields and were dressed in protective gear, including helmets, gas masks and body armor.
It was clear to the police that this crowd was ready for violence and chaos yet the media can’t seem to figure it out. There was literally absolutely nothing peaceful about the night and there hasn’t been for 100 nights. Yet, that doesn’t stop the leftist propaganda outlets and deranged Democrats from calling these extremists “peaceful.”
That’s what the lying media and the Democrats think of the American people. They think we’re all too stupid, ignorant and unable to think for ourselves to see through their lies. This is the America the Democrats want. One where all of us lowly subjects are scared into submission by violent mobs of criminals and thugs. This is “justice” and “equality” apparently.
If Joe Biden wins in November, we can expect “peace” to spread across America like wildfire.
