Next time, they should do this in conjunction with an open carry rally.

It's like they say, when the First amendment fails you, then you have the Second.

A .223 has a lot better reach than pepper spray.

CALLING THOSE LARGE WOODEN CONSTRUCTIONS 'SIGNS' IS A LIE. THEY ARE CLEARLY PORTABLE BARRICADES. A CONSTANT PROBLEM WITH LEFTIST PROTESTS IS THE PRESENCE OF THE ANARCHIST REVOLUTIONARIES. THEY START ALTERCATIONS WITH THE POLICE IN ORDER TO ATTEMPT TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE STATE IS OBVIOUSLY TRYING TO SILENCE ITS CRITICS. THE OL' RED'N'BLACK (NOT THE CAFE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN) HAVE BEEN DOING THE SAME THING SINCE THE POTEMKIN.

IS THERE ANY REASON WHY THE RETURN ENVELOPES ON THE BALLOTS AREN'T JUST POSTAGE-PAID? IN 2008, ~1.8 MILLION BALLOTS WERE CAST IN OREGON. I'M SURE THAT THE OREGON ELECTIONS DIVISION CAN ADD AN EXTRA MILLION TO ITS PRINTING BUDGET TO HELP RAISE THE RATE OF ENFRANCHISEMENT.

Thanks for the video's denis - I needed a good laugh, and these folks looking for a fight with cops was just the answer.

Israel's conclusion from their own war game simulation of an all out assault against Iran: Everything will be just peachy, Iran won't retaliate, Russia and China will sit on their thumbs, it will be over in a matter of weeks.

Gee, it all sounds so great...but I'm still not totally convinced. Maybe Netanyahu could come out with another Wile-e Coyote cartoon bomb diagram to put it in terms I can understand?

Fucking A, Dennis, those are battering rams or shields -- you can see how they're designed with heavy-duty loops on them for their forearm and hands.

People don't make signs like that. And people don't make signs out of wood to begin with, it's uneconomical and clunky. No austerity in the sign making world for these people, apparently.

You are an insanely biased journalist, it's so damned blatant too. Personally, I would have a hard time writing like you knowing I was putting out the truth and nothing but the truth, but I guess you're okay distorting the truth.

Here's some pictures of these things:

Signs, eh? Yeah right. The video shows exactly what those things were. "Shield" doesn't even do them justice as they were clearly used as an offensive tool in an advance.

Dennis, you can offer me a turd and call it an apple, but that don't mean I'm going to take bite. Good grief.

Selfish sycophants begging for attention to their otherwise miserable lives.

Here's a clue. You're not cool for taking on the cops. It doesn't make you awesome to antagonize "the man" until you get a face full of mace. You fuckers deserve that. You don't represent Portland very well at all. Portland is much better than what you idiots have to offer.

For those of you who bring your kids to these events: You should be investigated by the authorities for putting your kids in harm's way.
