Portland Protesters: Violence Is ‘A Useful Tool’ For Change - WATCH
Rioters in city admit to using violence to accomplish agenda
Rioters in Portland were interviewed by Intrepid reporter Ami Horowitz on the violence surrounding the federal courthouse in the city.
“For weeks, Portland has seen Black Lives Matter protests nightly in front of the federal courthouse," Horowitz reported.
"The mainstream media would have you think that these protests are peaceful and they simply want to stop police brutality. Nothing could be further from the truth,” he revealed.
Rioters are seen using pipes and golf clubs to destroy the courthouse’s protective paneling.
The video shows rioters shooting fireworks over a fence erected around building and setting trash fires.
Horowitz notes that hundreds of protesters cheered the violence of those attacking the building as federal law enforcement officers were trapped inside.
“There were groups of people interrogating journalists. They warned me that if I portrayed the protesters in a negative light, I would face ‘street justice,’ and after being recognized, I was pelted with broken glass,” Horowitz continued.
“In the words of the protesters that I spoke to, the goal of these protests is to encourage societal breakdown so that it could be rebuilt in their own warped image.”
Horowitz asked protesters if using "chaos" was a useful tool in fulfilling their agenda.
“It’s become a useful tool,” one protester said.
Another protester said the chaos should be “organized.”
One protester agreed it was time to “end the American experiment.”
“Definitely,” said the protester, dressed in all black with little more than his eyes showing.
“If we failed as an American experiment, it needs to be addressed.”
Another protester stated, “we have to burn it down.”
On the subject pf using violence to bring about change, one female protester said:
“Yes! Yes! You gotta have violence.”
She went on to describe looting and rioting as “part of being protesting.”
Another woman said violence is “an outcry of being silenced for way too long.”
But one protester was not comfortable with the violence.
The man, who was black, said the destruction will ultimately be left for the local black community to clean up.
“I don’t know no black folks who’s throwin’ mortars and s**t. I don’t know no black folks who’s throwin’ bombs over a fence,” the man said.
“That don’t have nothing to do with us.”
“And when everybody gets to go home, we stay black, homey, and we get blamed for your Black Lives f***ing Matter,” the man added.
“This is bulls**t."
Last week, Portland's Police Union boss slammed the city's Democrat leadership for facilitating violent Black Lives Matter protests, arguing that the riots are "no longer about social justice."
Portland Police Association President Daryl Turner ripped elected officials in Oregon for condoning "destruction and chaos" in the liberal city.
"This is no longer about George Floyd," Turner blasted.
"This is no longer about racial equity or social justice."
