While Democrats across America celebrated the inauguration of President Biden, Antifa in Portland, Oregon had other plans, which included a protest through the streets and vandalism of the local Democratic Party Headquarters.
Mike Benner with KGW News tweeted a pair of videos of the destruction and said of the first one, “Sound of breaking glass at what appear to be democratic offices at 9th & Everett.”
In the second reply tweet with the second video, he showed the broken glass and vandalism and said, “Significant damage at the Democratic Party of Oregon bldg at 9th & Everett.”

Townhall reporter Julio Rosas shared a video of his own and some pictures of the incident.
“On the ground in Portland, Ore. for @townhallcom. A group of Antifa marchers just attacked the city’s Democratic Party office. They broke windows and spray painted the building. Some of them had a hard time breaking the windows,” Rosas said in the tweet containing the video
The Post Millenial’s Andy Ngo shared the video as well and noted, “They bring weapons while their comrades use umbrellas to block surveillance video.”
Rosas said in the tweet about the pictures, “The group left after Portland police rolled up. Some photos of the aftermath.”

The Portland police tweeted out a plea for the hoodlums to stop. “To those gathered near the Democratic Party of Oregon Portland Headquarters: Members of this group have been observed damaging the building. Anyone who is involved in criminal behavior including: vandalism and graffittiing is subject to arrest or citation,” they said.
In an additional tweet, they added, “Criminal conduct may subject you to the use of force, including, but not limited to, crowd control agents and impact weapons. Stop damaging the Democratic Party of Oregon Portland Headquarters.”

In another tweet shared by Ngo, apparently prior to the destruction, he shared a picture which showed, “Some banners from the current #antifa #J20 protest in Portland: ‘We don’t want Biden—we want revenge’ ‘A new world from the ashes’ ‘We are ungovernable'”
