Yes, they stopped for the rain and started up again due to what hit the news about Kentucky.

I just wish the mainstream medua would give mire recognition to these people.

The mainstream media are often de facto accomplices - so of course they aren't gonna betray those they are protecting. It might even be a "silver or lead" kind of bargain, or as would be said in "The Godfather", an offer they can't refuse. "Nice media company you have there. Be a shame if it caught fire some night. Cover us in a favorable light and your fire insurance is paid up."

I didn't see The Godfather but it makes sense. While rioters go to various neighborhoods to march they have not destoyed black owned businesses. They did go after ones owned by those from Iran and India.

How does rioting in Portland help the situation in Kentucky?

"While rioters go to various neighborhoods to march they have not destoyed black owned businesses. They did go after ones owned by those from Iran and India."

So the rioters are hypocrites and xenophobes by the definitions used by their own supporters.

And by targeting businesses owned by specific ethnicities, their actions should technically come under the definition of hate crimes. But then by their standards, the only people who are capable of committing hate crimes are those with pale skin and west European ancestry. Everyone else gets a free pass to run amok and commit whatever acts of arson and wanton destruction that they please.

Extrapolating, it makes me wonder if, should they get the upper hand of power, if they'll do a Balkan States type ethnic cleansing.

The same way it helps the man who died in MN from a foot on his neck?

I guess there are new laws taxpayers, especially property tax payers in Portland, have not seen yet? Portlanders will be footing the bills for all this.

Hate crimes are only hate crimes if someone is willing to charge them.  Rioters seem to get away with a lot. They are being arrested, then let out.

Oh, I bet a lot of retired, unemployed, and other fixed income people will end up losing their homes due to tax foreclosure when the property tax skyrockets. I've said for decades that the ad valorem tax is the most cruel tax of all, since it creates a liquidity squeeze for the elderly especially.

Yep. If the victim is white and CIS, it's never a hate crime. That double standard is understood loud and clear.

But of course even objecting to being looted and burned out is "hate speech", and heaven forbid someone actually tries to defend themselves or <shudder> their property.
