Portland BLM Reportedly DISTANCING From Antifa, Inaccurately Claiming Innocence Over Violence

(PresidentialInsider.com)- On Wednesday, Oregon Public Broadcasting reported how Black Lives Matter activists announced that they were tired of “white” members of Antifa, and that they want racial segregation in their movement and protests. The report explained how Black Lives Matter claimed their movement had been hijacked by Antifa, though did not explain how the BLM activists felt about black activists who have also engaged in violence throughout the 2020 riots.

The outlet explained how tensions between Black activists and other “anti-establishment protesters” have “bubbled beneath the surface for months.”

Black Lives Matter in Portland, Oregon, has finally realized that the nightly violence that occurred for more than 100 days over the summer might be making them look bad, and is reportedly trying to separate itself from Antifa.

The problem? It’s not just Antifa causing the violence. Footage published online shows how Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists regularly joined forced to cause unprecedented damage to the city, with projectiles thrown at police officers and explosives used in an attempt to destroy federal buildings.

OPB reported how six months after the death of George Floyd, activists in Portland are “divided as to whether they are still fighting in a racial justice movement centered on Black lives, or if an unfocused, anti-establishment fight against capitalism and state power has usurped the initial cause that brought thousands of Portlanders in to the streets.”

The violence in Portland is still ongoing, with statues toppled in recent days.

According to OPB, Black Lives Matter activists also claim that members of the Antifa group are “privileged” – a word you’ve probably heard far-left activists use before. It generally just means “you’re a white person and therefore life is easy for you.”

“Most Black people in our community don’t feel like they have the privilege to go straight to the police and yell in their face,” one BLM activist said to OPB. “If you’re privileged, if you’re white, you care less about whether or not a protest is going to result in reforms that might save even just one life. And you have the ability to be a purist in a way that Black and brown communities really do not.”

Despite claims that Antifa is responsible for all the violence in Portland, video footage and arrests show that BLM activists also played a very big part.

Do they really think they can just distance themselves
