Yep. Wish they would just let the Proud Boys make fools of themselves and be universally condemned.

That said, people like to throw the Antifa label at a lot of people who have nothing to do with it.

I think Portland has reached a tipping point, with the liberals finally waking up to the harm that's been done to their once great city by extreme Progressive policies. I don't know if the Dems are ready for Repub candidates but I bet a Dem who is moderate could easily win in a FAIR election. "Fair" is the operative word

Ok, fair enough. I disagree with the SPLC for the simple reason that they tend to have a strange criteria for who goes on their list.

How so? It has been and continues to be one of the most desirable cities in the nation to move to. Great economy.

What they're getting fed up with is these out of state groups targeting the city for violent protests. As well as the homeless/drug issue, which really is a nationwide problem to figure out.

You watch too much tv.

When protests and such happen it's usually just at a park or one intersection or a block. Won't even know it's going on in the vast majority of the city.
