In recent days, as the police in Portland are not actively engaging with the protesters who are all but keeping the city hostage in many ways, federal forces have been sent out to protect federal properties and assets. One such location is the federal courthouse in that city. Sunday night, Antifa thugs attacked the building, and federal forces defended their ground.
And then the moms intervened.
A bunch of white women dressed in yellow stood between the mob and federal law enforcement and linked arms to form a barrier around the hoodlums, protecting them from federal authorities. They are a group of women who call themselves “Wall of Moms” and who have organized themselves against police brutality. A number of them are not happy that their teenagers were caught in a tear-gas fog while they were out “protesting” in previous days.
Aside from questionable parenting choices, these women now are guilty of interfering with federal police, and it is most convenient for them that they were all masked up so that identification is not easily accomplished.
Portland has been a hot spot for “protests” this summer, and the Department of Homeland Security has sent police there to assist in maintaining order. For its trouble, DHS is facing a lawsuit from the city claiming that federal forces are illegally interfering.
How this ends is anyone’s guess. In the meantime, the rest of the nation is seeing the true colors of the leadership in many locations. The voters will have something to say about that in November.
