Antifa/BLM continues to nightly mount some form of demonstration or “direct action”, normally now outside of downtown Portland, with organized black bloc groups in the hundreds assailing police precincts, the police union hall and Mayor Wheeler’s divorce-necessitated condo, which he’s since abandoned because of Antifa harrassment (driven from a second home by female braying?).
Insurrectionist numbers are declining down to hardcore committed Antifa and a few furious blacks, in increasing disharmony.
Black speakers predominate at demonstrations now, in keeping with the movement’s determination to be led by blacks, who rail at length before supplicant whites about being marginalized and not getting paid. When the whites aren’t submitting to this, they’re busy organizing and sometimes throwing themselves at riot police. The dynamic is a predictable cliché: black freeloaders, grifters and thugs hustling naïve whites; even within the BLM movement its silly premises are comically contradicted.
Those earnest black bloc kids were out last night in teams blocking off streets for a small march as they do; sad they were, perhaps, at the low turnout and feel compared to midsummer, when the energy was high and they didn’t stand out as much. Blending into those crowds wasn’t just good for evading police; it made it harder for black predators as well. Now that the normie-adjacent element is gone, it’s just Antifa standing out there to be harangued, and sometimes assaulted, by their black “accomplices” (a movement term).
Perhaps because things are slowing down and there’s less grift (and attention) to go around, unhappy black protest leaders are calling out white press or livestreamers for “profiting” off of blacks, by taking donations when they, say, livestream black protest leaders complaining about them profiting off of blacks.
