As Twitchy reported Saturday evening, Trump supporters gathered by the hundreds at a suburban Portland shopping mall parking lot so they could participate in a pro-Trump caravan around the city and into the downtown area. Newsweek‚Äôs Kurt Eichenwald called it ‚Äúthe next stage in evolution of a fascist country‚ÄĚ while Amy Siskind tweeted, ‚ÄúI have friends who live there and they are terrified! This is authoritarianism.‚ÄĚ
So starting fires every night for three months in Portland is ‚Äúmostly peaceful,‚ÄĚ but having a car caravan with flags is authoritarianism?
We already have one Trump supporter dead from Saturday night in Portland, and here‚Äôs a woman who can‚Äôt stop giggling as she shoots video of her comrades hurling items off an overpass at what we‚Äôre assuming is the caravan as it passed under. If not, it‚Äôs still video of people hurling eggs or something at cars flying Trump banners and American flags.

Boy, it will surely be great when Joe Biden is elected and the country can come together as one again.
People have been killed by stones thrown from overpasses. These morons should be held accountable for their actions.

This criminal conduct at a minimum is reckless endangerment.

Is a felony in my state.

We don‚Äôt know who originally uploaded the video, but we‚Äôd like to think law enforcement would be getting in touch.
Someone in my area died because of this

This is beyond dangerous‚Ä¶ laughing about it is insanity.

Is this a day out from some kind of institution? They look old enough to know better than that.
‚ÄĒ Jon Edwards ??? (@jonuk76) August 31, 2020
this is considered a felony in most places.

They know they won't be punished.

Can‚Äôt really see it getting any better regardless who wins

Jesus Christ those are full grown adults too.

Everyone in this clip on the overpass needs to be arrested.
‚ÄĒ Robert_Chadwick1 (@OpusVI1) August 31, 2020
Luckily their aim is bad.
I sure hope law enforcement can trace this video and arrest the criminals for the actions.

That's actually very illegal. Thankfully they recorded it and posted it on line.

They never learned how to function in a civilized society. I am willing to bet that before long, someone is going to educate them abundantly.

All fun and games until you hit like some elderly person and they crash
‚ÄĒ Peter Weyland ?? (@NathanAlgren12) August 31, 2020
man that's so dangerous. Regardless of what they're throwing, if just one driver overreacts and swerves, could lead to a terrible wreck.

This is how people get killed. Which would probably tickle these fools even more.

Are those eggs? I knew someone who was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon for throwing eggs at cars.

They could kill someone

They can‚Äôt stand seeing successful proud American families having a good time. This angers them to the point they have to commit violence.

It‚Äôs easy to dehumanize Republicans when people like Speaker Nancy Pelosi are calling them ‚Äúdomestic enemies‚ÄĚ of the state.
