Adults Have Portland Toddlers Hold Anti-Cop Signs and Repeat ‘F*ck the Police’
( Breitbart )
Adults in Portland appeared to have toddlers hold anti-cop signs and repeat “fuck the police” for a bystander recording the moment, as the city continues to descend into chaos on a nightly basis.
Journalist Andy Ngo, who has firsthand experience with violent Antifa rioters in Portland, shared a video on social media showing a group of adults walking with toddlers, who were holding anti-cop signs reading “Fuck the Police” and “Eff Trump’s Goons.”
“Show them your sign. Say, ‘Fuck the Police,’” an adult in the background told the children, who innocently repeated the phrase:
Toddlers and very young children are marched outside the Portland federal courthouse. They carry signs and say, “F— the police” on cue from the adults. One toddler does the black power fist. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/Xr4ubMrKZs — Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 23, 2020

Portland saw another night of violence on Thursday evening after a crowd of over 1,000 gathered outside of the Justice Center and Federal Courthouse. According to a statement from the Portland Police Bureau (PPB), several protesters set fires within the fence that surrounds the courthouse and breached the area, prompting a response from federal law enforcement.
“As Federal Police Officers dispersed the group they were hit with large projectiles, various incendiaries, and flashed with lasers,” the PPB stated:
By 1 a.m., a couple hundred people returned to the fence protecting the Federal Courthouse. These people continued to set fires, cut and breech the fence, and launch commercial grade fireworks towards the Federal Courthouse. The Federal Police Officers once again exited the Federal Court house and dispersed the crowd.
While Portland police did not engage with the demonstrators directly, they declared a riot shortly before 2 a.m.:
The activity outside of the Federal Courthouse has been deemed an unlawful assembly. Disperse to the north and/or west. Disperse immediately. Failure to adhere to this order may subject you to arrest or citation, or riot control agents, including tear gas and/or impact weapons. — Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) July 24, 2020

However, “many people stayed in the area and continued to light fires, and destruct federal courthouse property,” according to PPB:

Feds put out fire. But right as they left rioters started a new one that’s even bigger than this one How is this the Feds instigating violence? It all seems to be well planned and the MSM is in on it Where’s this footage on the major networks daily? You know why pic.twitter.com/00ePPVtiCH — ELIJAH RIOT (@ElijahSchaffer) July 24, 2020

PPB, which has been barred by the Portland City Council from cooperating with federal law enforcement, did not engage with the crowd nor make any arrests.
Portland Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty recently made waves after telling Marie Claire that she believes officers are “starting the fires themselves” to justify “attacking community members.”
