Antifa set fire to the Mark Hatfield federal courthouse in downtown Portland, OR Thursday night.

Demonstrators were protesting against police violence and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The protest began around 8:30 p.m. outside the courthouse. Shortly after 9 p.m., images of the courthouse on fire circulated the internet.

According to a tweet by journalist Andy Ngo, people were inside the courthouse at the time of the fire.

At least one person was arrested, according to reports.

Darby Howard, 22, is facing charges of first-degree criminal mischief and resisting arrest after he allegedly resisted arrest and punched an officer in the face, according to Portland police.

Demonstrators smashed windows, burned american flags and set fire to the plywood outside of the building.

The courthouse had already been boarded up due to several protests, marches and riots since last May following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The building was the scene of over 120 consecutive nights of rioting by Black Lives Matter and Antifa last summer.

On Thursday night, the Portland Police Department said they were preparing for more unrest throughout the weekend.

“We are aware of events planned tomorrow and this weekend in which people plan to gather and demonstrate. Demonstration Liaison Officers (DLOs) are available to work with community members organizing these events,” the Portland police tweeted.

Portland Police Bureau Deputy Chief Chris Davis told KOIN 6, “Protest is fine, that’s not what we’re talking about. With this group, this is a small group that is bent on destroying things. And what they want is a conflict.”

American Girl publishes ‘guide’ for girls aged 3-12 on how to transition gender

Parents are furious over a popular doll brand is offering advice to girls as young as three on how to transition their gender. Though a published magazine, American Girl not only advocated for medicines available to “delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender” but supported the notion of making such decisions without parental consent.

“If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you” the magazine, titled “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image” writes. It offers readers to “turn to the Resources on page 95 for more information.”

The publication then details what discussions with a doctor could entail: “If you have’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity.”

“If you’ve already gone through puberty, a doctor can still help” it continues. “Studies show that transgender and nonbinary kids who get help from doctors have much better mental health than those who don’t.”

Normalizing body dysmorphia, the book reads “Parts of your body might make you feel uncomfortable, and you might wan to change the way you look. That’s totally OK!”

The Daily Mail notes “earlier this year, its parent company Mattel, recently put a transgender Barbie doll on the market. Before that, American Girl, which sells more than 30 million dolls a year, shilled an Asian doll when anti-Asian hate crimes were skyrocketing across the US.”
