WATCH: George Washington Statue in Portland toppled, set on fire as protests continue

Per Andy Ngo:

Antifa rioters on Sandy Blvd. in Portland draped a US flag over a George Washington statue & set it on fire.

They then toppled the statue. “Genocidal colonist” & “f— cops” are sprayed on monument. Rioters have began to build another autonomous zone nearby.

KOMO News reports a group of people late Thursday night tore down a statue of George Washington that stood on the lawn of the German American Society in Northeast Portland.

There were 30 to 40 people there at the time.

Meanwhile, protesters elsewhere took a break from their nightly marching, but they still gathered at Jefferson High School.

The group is organized by Rose City Justice, which usually meets at Revolution Hall and marches somewhere across the city.

But on Thursday night they stayed at Jefferson and heard from numerous speakers about the Black Lives Matter movement.

And as they have done almost every night for three weeks, another group of a few hundred protesters gathered at the Justice Center downtown, which has been the site of the most clashes between police and protesters.
