With months of mostly peaceful Antifa protests in Portland, Oregon, it’s to be expected that the police will occasionally snag some pretty big fish in their nets.
This weekend, they did just that:
Kristina Narayan was arrested at the Portland #antifa riot where firebombs were thrown at people. She's the legislative dir. for the Ore Democrat speaker of the House @TinaKotek. Kotek recently denounced Portland Police in a letter. https://t.co/4HLjSn67bv https://t.co/fz1dSHF3Bo pic.twitter.com/Y7L48opdMs

She’s what, now?
The police arrested Kristina Narayan, who is legislative director for the top Democrat in Oregon’s House of Representatives, along with 58 others during a riot that began Saturday night and continued into Sunday morning, according to a Portland Police Bureau report. Narayan has worked for House Speaker Tina Kotek since 2016.

It’s not really sad.
But it is pretty significant, politically speaking.
For those in the back — arrested rioter is THE LEGISLATIVE DIRECTOR FOR THE OREGON SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE https://t.co/htH9su4630

You’d think this would be problematic. But who are we kidding?
Shouldn't that be disqualifying for her job?

She’ll put it right at the top of her resume.

Don’t be surprised.
I said this months ago.
The reason Democrats can't denounce Antifa is because THEIR STAFF IS ANTIFA. https://t.co/9QmEtLtw4O

So when they say, "This is what democracy looks like!" they mean firebombing the opposition from inside the House of government. 🔥
Good to know! 🌊💀
