Crazed Portland Mob Tears Down George Washington Statue, Burns American Flag on Top of It

A Portland, Oregon, statue of George Washington was toppled Thursday night after leftist protesters first burned a flag draped over the Founding Father’s head.


Portland, a center of antifa activity, has been the site of rioting and protests since the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. A mob there had already taken down a statue of Thomas Jefferson that stood outside of a high school named after him.

The demonstration at the Washington statue began with about 20 people, according to KOIN-TV, and then grew until there were enough people present to topple the statue.

Multiple Twitter accounts showed parts of the destruction of the statue, from the flag that was draped across Washington and set afire to the graffiti scrawled on the state after it fell.

Police made no arrests, according to KATU-TV.

The statue had stood for almost 100 years, according to Newsweek.

It was part of the City of Portland and Multnomah County Public Art Collection.

    It seems if you have elected democrats to run your state the criminals are now in charge. Seems you democrat voters just don’t get it but it is just a matter of time before those that have worked for a living won’t have nothing left.
