This is tRump’s US, where people using their constitutional right to protest are threatened, rushed, intimidates, beaten, humiliated, and pepper sprayed by right wing thugs acting as brown shirts for tRump. Also note that the police ask and request the proud boys and other right wing gang members to go back to their area where they were to be before they rushed the BLM people. Where was the rubber bullets and gas used on the black lives matter people, but not used here on a gang of thugs. This is clearly police sanctioned violence against a group of people. Is this democracy? They want to scare the BLM people into not demonstrating, but what will happen instead is both sides will arm up now, and both sides will use weapons and gas on each other. People will be hurt and maimed just because police are protecting their power to kill and mistreat a segment of the population. This is what the police are protecting for them selves, the right to be violent racists. Hugs
The Associated Press reports:
Vehicles waving flags for Trump, the QAnon conspiracy theory and in support of police gathered about noon at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City. Members of the right-wing group the Proud Boys went on to Salem, where a crowd of several dozen pro-Trump supporters had gathered.
At one point Monday afternoon, the right-wing crowd rushed a smaller group of Black Lives Matters counter-demonstrators, firing paint-gun pellets at them. There were skirmishes, and the Black Lives Matter group dispersed shortly after local police arrived on the scene.
*** Update *** The police did rush in to help one BLM person who was alone and attacked by the right wing gang.
