    Employees at a Pacific Northwest burger chain triggered a new policy after employees wore buttons that read “Abolish ICE” and “No one is illegal” with their uniforms. Ten employees of fast food restaurant Burgerville, located in Portland, Ore., were sent home for a day last month when they refused to remove the buttons while on their shift, The Oregonian reported. The silent protest came amid national outrage regarding the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy that previously separated thousands of migrant children from their parents at the US-Mexico border. Calling for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be dissolved has...

    The union representing Burgerville employees in the Portland area on Friday blasted the company's move to ban buttons on their uniforms , a decision handed down as some workers continue to wear pins proclaiming "Abolish ICE" and other political statements. The Burgerville Workers Union in a tersely worded statement called the new policy, announced Thursday and effective Sept. 13, "disgusting" and "deeply disturbing." The group also accused the company of caving to pressure generated by those angered over the buttons, whom the union appeared to uniformly cast as a horde of right-wing bigots. Portland Burgerville workers serve 'Abolish ICE' message,...

    ORTLAND, Oregon—Outfitted in a flak jacket and fighting gloves, Enrique Tarrio was one of dozens of black, Latino, and Asian men who marched alongside white supremacists in Portland on Aug. 4. Tarrio, who identifies as Afro-Cuban, is president of the Miami chapter of the Proud Boys, who call themselves “Western chauvinists,” and “regularly spout white-nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Last month, prior to the Patriot Prayer rally he attended in Portland, Tarrio was pictured with other far-right activists making a white-power hand sign. Last year, he and other Proud Boys...

    A registered Democrat and Bernie Sanders supporter has been beaten up by left-wing militants for carrying an American flag at a protest rally. Paul Welch, a 38-year-old self-described 'slightly progressive leftist' took the flag to the Portland rally earlier this month in a bid to 'take it back' from the conservative movement, according to Oregon Live. The Oregon man joined hundreds of counter-protesters gathered at City Hall when he was approached by two Antifa activists who demanded he drop the'fascist symbol', ripping it from his hands and leaving him recoiled on the ground with a bloody wound to his head.

    A Portland-based ice cream shop partnered with NARAL to create a controversial abortion-inspired ice cream flavor to “save Roe” from President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. For a limited time, What’s The Scoop? customers can order a pint of “Rocky Roe v. Wade” for $9.50 to “help defend reproductive freedom,” according to a NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon fundraiser poster. “Is the hot weather and political climate getting you down? It’s time to eat more ice cream!” NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon wrote on its Facebook page.

    Warning: This story contains graphic content Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known. With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter...
  • Portlandia: Further descending into leftist madness

    Portland, Oregon, has gradually become the laughingstock of the country. The far left began moving there in droves a few years ago, taking over the city and transforming it to their liking. Taxes and regulations increased. Many of the changes involved implementing more aggressive environmental laws, some that seemed based on junk science. Money was directed into public transit instead of relieving motor vehicle traffic congestion, leading to the fifth-worst traffic in the nation. The TV comedy “Portlandia” emerged, making fun of the city’s nuttiest aspects. The far left in Portland became obsessed with protesting white supremacy through violence. They...

    Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw is not satisfied with how reporters have covered the heavy-handed police response to antifascist counterprotesters at an Aug. 4 rally. Today, she used a vivid analogy to make her point. She told conservative talk-radio host Lars Larson she thought the protesters were acting like children who lost a schoolyard fight and had gone of to "whine and complain" after police fired flash-bang grenades, rubber bullets and pepper spray into a crowd of demonstrators. (At least two people were sent to the hospital with serious injuries after being hit directly with stun grenades launched by...

    Portland police chief Danielle Outlaw says she told the mayor Portland police would clear the protest camp surrounding a federal immigration office, with or without his support. In a very frank radio interview first noted by the Portland Tribune, Outlaw says she approached Mayor Ted Wheeler and told him she intended to use her bureau's resources to put an end to the protest outside U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's headquarters. "I went to the mayor and said, 'Look, this isn't sustainable, not just resource wise, it's just out of control for many reasons,'" she told talk-radio host Lars Larson on...

    A protest against police brutality itself turned violent Wednesday when activists attempted to storm Portland City Hall, clobbered one security guard and scuffled with several others. It was the biggest disruption to a Portland City Council meeting in more than a year, but the Council did not address the substance of protesters' ire: violent crowd control techniques used by police during a large counter-demonstration downtown Saturday. Some of those who say they were injured by officers dressed in military gear and wielding batons or non-lethal munitions were on scene Wednesday, trying to speak with city officials. Amid an outcry over...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A right-wing group and self-described anti-fascist counter-protesters rallied in Portland, Oregon, Saturday as police tried to prevent the gatherings from turning violent as they have before. The rally organized by Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson was the third to roil Portland this summer. Two previous events ended in bloody fistfights and riots, and one counter-protester was sent to the hospital with a skull fracture.This time, Gibson changed the venue from a federal plaza outside U.S. District Court to a waterfront park so some of his Oregon supporters could carry concealed weapons as they demonstrate. Protesters saw...

    Officials in Portland, Ore., are worried the far-right rally planned for this weekend could turn into “another Charlottesville.” Fears of violent protests in the area are rising ahead of the rally scheduled on Saturday by Patriot Prayer, a conservative group founded by far-right Senate candidate Joey Gibson. In a “Hate Watch” report, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) warned “threats of violence” are looming over the upcoming rally, which it suggested could be “another Charlottesville.” The report comes days after Gibson said in a Facebook post last week that the “Freedom March” rally would be held at a location that...

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler on Tuesday denied claims by the union representing Immigrations and Customs Enforcement employees that city police officers would not respond to their urgent calls for service during a recent occupation by protesters. Through attorney Sean Riddell, the union on Monday criticized the mayor for his laissez faire approach to a protest at the local ICE field office, which lasted five weeks. When the protest began, Wheeler announced that he would not allow Portland police officers to be "sucked into a conflict" over the protest and said federal police would be responsible for protecting their own building...

    ICE officers sent a cease-and-desist letter Monday to the mayor in Portland, Oregon, demanding he apologize for ordering city police to stand down as protesters ravaged the immigration agency’s headquarters and menaced its employees. Agency employees say they were harassed, followed and had their personal vehicles damaged when protesters tried to block them from leaving. They say Portland police refused to respond, under orders from Mayor Ted Wheeler, who said he backed the protesters over the feds. With police on the sidelines the Occupy ICE protesters shut down U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s building on Macadam Avenue for a week...
