Alt-right rally in Portland declared a riot after right-wingers go on violent rampage

Published

on

A rally in Portland, Oregon organized by Joey Gibson, who is running for U.S. Senate as a Republican in Washington state was declared a riot on Saturday night, the Oregonian reports.

Gibson is an extremist who holds “free speech rallies” to provoke Antifa and other leftists. Today’s event, held near the site of the family-friendly rally opposing President Trump’s immigration policies devolved after police told everyone to go home.

In a video posted by independent journalist Mike Bivins, one of the right-wingers appears to throw a heavy metal trash trash can lid at a what appears to be a much smaller woman.

At one point there was a brawl involving what appeared to be at least 100 people from both sides, throwing smoke bombs and then exchanging blows.

Other video from Bivins shows police firing tear gas, making arrests and right-wingers brandishing shields and wearing absurd costumes.

Bivins reported that a number of Proud Boys were arrested following the clashes.

The protests have been regular occurrences, taxing the city’s resources as both sides are seemingly eager for violence.

A local weekly covering the protest reported hearing police officers discussing strategy at Starbucks, with one of the cops heard saying that the city should “just let them fight.”

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-ILL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."

GOP looks like it’s in a ‘state of panic’ after labeling combat veteran a ‘socialist loser’ for running as a Democrat: columnist

Published

on

Republicans in Cincinnati, Ohio, may have overstepped the boundaries of poor taste, calling a former Air Force pilot a "socialist loser."

As columnist Jason Williams writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the GOP majorly flubbed their campaign against the Democrat.

"Yeesh, not a good look for the Trump Party," Williams writes. "Democrat Nikki Foster is neither a socialist nor a loser, from what little we know about the Mason moderate after she launched her campaign in Ohio's 1st Congressional District on Monday."
