Leftist Mob Attacks State Capitol and Innocent Bystanders

Political violence has certainly been on the rise here in the United States as of late, and the mayhem is manifesting itself on both sides of the aisle.

Most famously, (or infamously), were the events of January 6th, as a large crowd of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to prevent the certification of the results of the 2020 election.

But, prior to and in the aftermath of that tragic day, radical leftists in the Pacific Northwest have been absolutely maniacal in their violence.  Over the weekend, they took this agitation to the Oregon State Capitol.

Salem Police arrested at least three people and urged others to stay away from Oregon’s State Capitol building Sunday evening as violence linked to Antifa-aligned protesters broke out.

The “heavily armed” crowd had grown to as many as 200 people, Fox 12 Portland reported. The chaos unfolded as a planned right-wing protest and Antifa counter-protest were scheduled in Salem for the same day.

Police received reports of vehicles driving past the Capitol being struck with balloons filled with paint as well as green lasers being pointed at drivers.

The scene was chaotic to say the least.

The violence in Oregon has been ongoing for months, with a number of prominent political figures repeatedly calling on local leaders to step up and put an end to the chaos.
