Portland May Day rally turns into violent riot

Have you ever heard of a Tea Party event turning violent? Do you remember the Republican arsonists terrorizing everyone after Barack Obama's election wins in 2008 and 2012?

No.

Because our side consists of decent, law-abiding people.

Will there be a Portlandia episode about this outrgage?

From NBC Portland:
What began as a peaceful march for labor rights on May Day in Portland turned violent as a group of self-described anarchists threw objects at officers and officers fired non-lethal weapons back. Police canceled the permitted march and deemed it a riot as tensions escalated.

Portland police said more than two-dozen people were arrested.

Rallies began at noon and a march started at about 3 p.m. Portland police reported members of an anarchist group threw smoke bombs and other objects at police officers at about 4:10 p.m.

Police first said protesters with children should leave the march, then told everyone to disperse.
And that's not all.
Oregon Live has up-to-the-minute coverage of this leftist riot.

Back in the mid sixties when I lived in the Portland are the annual Rose parade and Festival was a big deal. People took the entire year preparing for it. I haven't been back in over twenty years but I'm still pretty sure there are a lot of people that are pretty cheesed off about the festival being cancelled and now this uncivilized riot. Will there be a turning in Portland? I have my doubts.

I was in Portland last summer. I think everyone is on dope there.
