Well, their shirts weren't brown, and didn't have the Obama logo on the arm, so it's okay.
That is not cool.
Speaking of disappearances: in 20 years it's going to be very hard to find any Trump voters.
That ... is fucked-up.
Shit like this that makes secession attractive.
Trump, do you want us to be Pacifica? Cause this is how you get Pacifica.
No, shit like this is how "federal agents" who refuse to identify themselves get themselves killed.
That too, but since that only escalates the problem, it still feeds in to my hypothesis.
Welcome to the party pal!
Life in Trump america.
@T.R is overjoyed.
I believe if I was in Oregon's Congressional Delegation, I would be, very publicly, standing in the North Portico to the White House until I had some answers.
I may need to email Bleumanaur, Merkley, and Wyden
This seems all completely fine.
Uh... Hopefully the media will start looking into this. Because if these guys really are federally deputized mercenaries then HOLY FUCK THIS IS BAD!
Yeah, stupid liberals whining about people people being kidnapped by mercenaries when we have real problems, like people in states with Democrat governors being forced to wear masks in public!
Just want to point out that I haven’t seen any confirmed report these goons are mercenaries. Right now it is just people on FB saying it and we all know how reliable that can be.
Hopefully the media is investigating and can give us answers on who these kidnappers really are.
Performance art? Protestors staging their own "abductions" to retain media attention? Just spitballing here.
Just trying to wrap my head around this - it does say "POLICE" on their uniforms in this video, but the assertion is these guys aren't Portland PD but rather some independent mercs posing as cops?
I mean they do jam him into a van and not a cop car which is pretty fucked
If true that's pretty wild, but need more information
Nothing about who the goons actually are but some good context for the situation.
In the video from the OP these guys do not announce themselves as cops, nor do they follow proper arrest procedure. And they're in military uniform.
We don't do shit like this in the US.
Eyes off last month or so and raises an eyebrow.
Not in our US. However, Trump's US is something else.
So now we're getting our news from Twitter and Facebook?
Anyone have a reputable news source on this?
Anyone want to guess how long it is before WAB starts complaining about MAOHS avatar? He's already gone for steve's anti-Twitter schtick, so I'm assuming the other can't be far behind.
If only someone had posted an article from Oregon’s largest newspaper...
@We Are Borg since you seem to be having a hard time.
Jesus H. Christ. Talk about jumping to conclusions. I ask a simple question (which @Ancalagon only partially answered with an article that doesn't mention anything about "kidnappings") and suddenly I'm anti-Twitter?
If this is true, it's a BIG. FUCKING. DEAL.
Major national news outlets would be running the story and I haven't seen anything except on social media.
Look, I'm quite obviously no fan of Trump but I also have a healthy skepticism of pretty much everything on the internet.
