It has been reported that it looks to some observers like Trump’s Troops (Private Militia) (Gestapo) (Unidentified Federal Agents) may have caught the Mayor of Portland, Oregon in a cloud of tear gas during a recent “Demonstration” (Scourge of Vandalism) in that beleaguered city.
I am particularly disturbed by the use of tear gas by these unknown entities who have been allegedly identified as Federal troops sent into the city to quell the riots taking place there. I am always somewhat disturbed by any mass attack by armed troops advancing on a civilian population with clouds of any kind of gas …. In this case, I am also very thankful that teargas is their choice and not something worse.
Now there are reports that some of the fires being set in Portland are being set not by so-called “Demonstrators” but by certain of the police themselves. There is no way at present to substantiate those claims but I have heard of this kind of tactic before … set the building on fire and blame it on rowdy civilians. —— https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichstag_fire
Trump has referred to the “Demonstrators” as “Anarchists” and in the case of the Reichstag Fire, the “Communists” were blamed.
In my opinion, the sudden arrest (without warrants) of civilians off the streets of Portland and hauling them away to unknown destinations in unmarked van-type vehicles gives me a mental impression of a few dozen unfortunate souls jammed into a large military truck on their way to God only knows where back in the days of the Second World War.
The good news, as far as I am concerned, is that nobody has yet reported that the arrested “Demostrators” are being taken to any kind of special “Detainment/Interrogation” camps or anything of that nature. But assessing the personalities who are behind these kinds of actions, I have to conclude that anything is possible in the future.
I wonder if this thing will escalate to the days when we see a revival of McCarthyism or worse or a day when these kinds of protesters will be waterboarded or worse.
How far are we all away from martial law in The United States?
