Antifa/BLM subversives topple Lincoln, Roosevelt statues in Portland.

On Sunday night, rioters in Portland, Ore., toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt and caused thousands of dollars’ worth of damage at the Oregon Historical Society. Declaring a day of action, the “indigenous wing” of antifa threatened violence to anyone caught live-streaming or recording video of their actions leading into Columbus Day.

The statues, once toppled, were covered in what appears to be orange paint.

After toppling the statues, rioters smashed windows at the Oregon Historical Society, an expansive museum on the South Park Blocks near Portland State University.

One person attempted to set the building on fire by throwing a lit flare into the lobby.

The east side of the Oregon Historical Society building faces SW Broadway Street, a heavily traveled thoroughfare through downtown Portland. That side of the building has a large, multistory mural depicting events from Oregon’s history. Rioters defaced the mural by pelting it with paintball guns.

The rioters claimed moral righteousness in destroying as much American history as they could get their hands on.

The Young Republicans of Oregon posted on Facebook:

President Lincoln has been toppled, as has Teddy Roosevelt.

The Oregon Historical Society was vandalized as well. They have been showcasing the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote.

The riots and graffiti have featured radical indigenous messages for many months, claiming that Portland sits on land stolen long ago from native tribes. The rioters have used these claims as justification to destroy as much property as possible, with the ultimate goal of driving European settlers out of the Pacific Northwest. Of course, that sets Portland up for virtually endless riots, especially if laws continue to go unenforced and the district attorney continues to insist upon not prosecuting riot crimes.
