Default 'Wall of Vets,' join protests in Portland

'Wall of Vets,' join protests in Portland

Quote:
...the group of dozens of veterans served as a barrier between law enforcement and protesters. They joined a group of Portland mothers calling themselves “Wall of Moms,” who chanted,“Moms are here. Feds stay clear.”

Both groups were eventually dispersed with tear gas and other crowd control agents used by the federal forces.

Duston Obermeyer, a Marine Corps veteran, told the Times that the veterans were “there to ensure our citizens did not have their right to free speech and their right to protest and right to assemble taken away from them.”

“Our veterans are here to support specifically the rights of the protesters,” he said.

Last week Christopher David, a onetime member of the Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps, was struck with a baton and sprayed in the face with a chemical irritant while attending the protests. The 53-year-old later learned his right hand was broken.
...uh... is all this anonymous uniforms attacking protesters legal?

Federal marshals were only dispatched to Portland after local officials ignored attempts to loot and burn the Federal justice center in Portland. Nobody's right to peaceful protest is being impaired. Useful idiots like the moms and vets are serving as screens for Antifa and BLM fascist thugs intent on destruction and mob rule.

I read that the "mothers" were actually rioters who changed clothes and pretended to be mothers, which they were not.

The left, because of the utter vapidness of their positions, always feels the need for human shields, proxies to push policy who are immune from criticism unless one is willing to suffer demonization. The "moms" and the "veterans" are just the current proxies in the image of the Sandy Hook families.

It is a despicable practice but it is effective when so many stupid people buy so deeply into it (with a full court propaganda press by the DEMedia). The hangers-on (like the OP) put up the "veterans" as unimpeachable because no challenge to the leftist policy is accepted because the proxy has venerable status.

Hopefully those crazy leftists regardless of who they pretend to be are also arrested when they try to stop federal agents from arresting looters and arsonists.

It Seems Antifa Plays Dress-Up Again – After Wall Of Moms Were Exposed Just As Rioters That Put On A Yellow Shirt, Now They Pretended To Be US “Veterans”

Quote:
Well, investigative journalist Andy Ngo who was once again on the field provided a video in which he says he can identify many of the women in yellow as Antifa rioters who only put yellow shirts and most of them aren’t even mothers.

Its part of the lib-tard thing where if a man says he's a woman then he's a woman. Now I guess if someone who hasn't served in the military says they are a vet then are a vet or someone who isn't a mom says they're a mom then they're a mom.

Awesome Tim Pool segment on the tactics of the far left activist conglomerate.

The "moms" and the the "vets" are just another chapter in the book of propaganda tactics used by these subversives and terrorists.

She's waiting for her talking points to counter the actual facts. So far, the media has not provided them to her.
