Trump’s secret police seizing protesters in Portland, OR. https://www.thenation.com/article/politics/trump-secret-police-portland/
quote: “We’ve done a great job in Portland,” Trump said Monday during a White House event. “Portland was totally out of control, and they went in, and I guess we have many people right now in jail. We very much quelled it, and if it starts again, we’ll quell it again very easily. It’s not hard to do, if you know what you’re doing.”
Every day is Opposite Day in Trump country. He has escalated the hostility and roughly tripled the size of the protest.
These scenes are exactly like the ones Republicans have been describing for years claiming the Democrats were coming for your guns. When heavily armed mercenary thugs show up anywhere, with no discernable identification and refusing to answer questions, it makes me think of one opportunistic warmonger in particular.
