It’s a question based on the silencing of Portlander Michael Strickland, Multnomah County Republicans, speakers Ann Coulter, Charles Murray, Heather MacDonald under threat of violence.
As one of the self described anti-fascist (Antifa) protesters put it when his threats resulted in the cancellation of Portland’s 82nd Street Avenue of the Roses Parade:
You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely. Let us know your decision by tuesday by emailing back. We will also wheatpaste fliers across the march route naming sponsors and holding them accountable for backing an event with this type of rhetoric which may endanger future parades ability to get sponsors. We will also begin emailing groups who are participating in the march to inform them you are allowing a group of bigots to march in the parade.
Of course, I’ve been saying for years that they believe the police “cannot stop” them from “shutting down roads.”
This lady tried with the only weapon she had, some Tide detergent to get the thugs out of her way:
The only ones the police and institutional Portland silence is one guy who was being threatened, assaulted and mobbed by these same thugs. And now he faces prison.
The rioters veto has won.
