Antifa rioters, among others, in Portland toppled statues Sunday night – including those of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln – in what was described on social media as a ‘Day of Rage’ to protest against the Columbus Day holiday.

These rioters and looters destroyed the “entrance to the Oregon Historical Society in Portland’s South Park Blocks late Sunday before moving into other areas of downtown, smashing storefronts and engaging in other acts of destruction,” according to news reports out of Oregon.

Police could not stop the rioting and according to news reports law enforcement officials did not directly intervene until more than an hour after the first statue fell.

President Donald Trump announced last month that his administration plans to designate both the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and Antifa as terrorist organizations, and call for making lynching a federal hate crime. Trump also announced an investment of $500 million for Black Americans to increase access to the amount of capital in Black communities.

On Monday morning President Trump tweeted in response to Sunday night’s destruction that the “FBI and Law Enforcement must focus their energy on Antifa and the Radical left, those who have spent the summer trying to burn down poorly run Democrat Cities throughout the USA!”

Police are trying to get an armed man to surrender just outside the United Nations building in New York City. The man is holding a shotgun, and photos show him placing it below his chin, looking like an attempted suicide effort.

Cops were forced to shut down Manhattan streets Thursday, police said. “The unnamed man, who is in his 60s, was pacing on First Avenue between East 42nd and 45th streets late Thursday morning and was believed to be suicidal, cops said” reported the New York Post.

“Disturbing photos from the scene show the man, wearing a red jacket and blue jeans, pointing the firearm under his chin. Police are working on getting him to surrender.
Cops shut down roads surrounding the UN complex, which was also placed on lockdown.”
