(RightIsRight.co) – Just because mainstream media has failed to cover the ongoing unrest in Portland, Oregon doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. This week, Antifa rioters rallied against a Federal courthouse in the state’s largest city, setting fires and smashing windows wherever they could.
On the evening of Thursday, March 9, rioters showed up at the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse and met officers who used tear gas and smoke bombs to stop the self-proclaimed protestors. After the rioters were sent away once, they returned and broke windows while setting fires outside the federal building.
Founder and editor of Grabien Media shared a photo of the unrest from Fox News:
Imagine if a version of the Capitol riot were happening … every night — for 8 months straight, but was somehow not being reported in the major media. That’s basically what’s been happening in Portland. pic.twitter.com/2ncpivdVbO

The group allegedly was protesting against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), but earlier in the day, protestors gathered to decry a pipeline between Alberta, Canada and Superior, Wisconsin.
While the right to protest is one we will fiercely protect in our nation, when these demonstrations resort to violence, they must be stopped. We’re thankful police were able to step in to protect our law-abiding citizens on Thursday — we hope our media will condemn these acts as well.
