Apparently, it's unacceptable for anybody to protest about anything that hasn't happened directly to their own body. Unless you have actually been killed by the police, you are just being an ungrateful little bitch.

The two adjacent lots shown in the video are temporary homeless camps for unhoused Portland residents, according to two nonprofits that helped install them. The campsites were set up in April, predating racial justice protests that have persisted nightly in Portland since late May."

Except the residents have been identified as attendees of the "mostly peaceful" protests.

There are as many online articles stating that it is an ANTIFA camp as there are those denying it. The truth is likely to be somewhere in between.

That approach would certainly reduce anti- abortion protests.

Oh no! Homeless person goes to a protest for justice! **** me those Marxists are dangerous.

"Online articles" are not the same as reported facts by serious news outlets. Right wing halfwits posting garbage online doesn't means it's true. You're just wrong. Accept it.

So if people make shit up and widely float it around the Internet, that somehow makes the truth something different than before the shit was made up? Well maybe in your alternate universe.

If you repeat shit often enough, it somehow becomes true. This must explain the serial plastering of BE with youtube vids full of made-up shit.

"JOIN, the nonprofit that operates the outdoor shelters, and a Home for Everyone, the board that coordinates local governments' response to homelessness, also issued a statement to explain why the camps exist.

"These shelters opened in April, after weeks of urgent planning prompted by the pandemic," the statement says. "They offered badly needed places to stay, and food and hygiene options, for scores of neighbors who didn't have a place to call home at a time when our community was under a strict stay-at-home order."

Kafoury says she and others are working with Portland police to ensure the safety of shelter residents in the face of threats.

"I was sickened not only by how quickly the lie spread, but also that it was used almost immediately to incite violence," Kafoury says in a statement.

“Since yesterday afternoon, many people and organizations have tried our best to fight back against these dangerous lies by sharing actual facts,” she adds. “But we are also taking seriously the many online calls to intimidate or harm people living at the campsites.”

Now there are threats against them. Paulry and Boiler, how about condemning that?

Problem is your "serious news outlets" are not trusted and unbiased news outlets - that ship sailed a long time ago. Your "online articles" circulated by your "serious news outlets" are no more intrinsically reliable than anything else we might find on the internet. That is the truth. Accept it.

Really! Three major PNW news outlets and AP news are not more reliable than your youtube links?

Here is the website of the charity running those encampments.
https://joinpdx.org/programs/

Here is the Multnomah County government site talking about the work.
https://multco.us/joint-office-homel...ltnomah-county

Here is another national news outlet on the subject.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/ve...nd/ar-BB18NJD8

The list goes on and on. But I'm sure they're all Marxists, and it's far more likely that they are all lying than it is that you are lying, no?

The Anarchists and Marxists claim to not trust main stream media because they are owned by corporations and billionaires, pumping out capitalist propaganda. Whats your reasoning?

This sums up perfectly a couple of posts I made the other day about finding 'evidence' supporting Trump's denial of mocking the disabled that was not connected to Sean Hannty.

Every blog, every tweet, every youtube video siding with Trump and presenting 'evidence' was directly taken from a Sean Hannity/Fox news piece.

In Paulry's eyes these are multiple examples of proof.

The people responsible for that certainly weren't woke, they weren't even just asleep - bordering on brain-dead would be my guess!
