Video: “San Diego Is NOT Portland!” Hundreds Of Cops & Angry Citizens Face Off W/ ANIFA Terrorists
Eric Thompson| Opinion| There are only a few far left-leaning cities, with Marxist mayors and citizens who will not stand up to anarchists.
They just stand by and let them destroy their properties and terrorize their communities.
Portland, Seattle, and Chicago, to name a few, give SJW wannabees in other cities the impression they can also go to local cities and terrorize them.
What they are finding out is most Americans are NOT going to stand by and there will be a lot of guns waiting for them, from the police and private citizens.
Another case in point.
In La Mesa, CA, in San Diego County, located 9 miles east of Downtown San Diego, there are 57,000 people who are looking to live the American dream.
Last Saturday San Diego Black Lives Matter protesters held a rally in support of the street terrorists in Portland.
You know the ones In Portland, angry violent leftists who have destroyed the downtown in 2 months of rioting.
Black Lives Matter terrorists tried again to turn La Mesa into an autonomous zone like has been happening in Portland and Seattle. La Mesa is a liberal suburb of San Diego. This is the second time they have failed. The week before only about 20 terrorists showed up and were greatly outnumbered.
About 300 people showed up for a sympathy-with-Portland event in La Mesa, a suburb of San Diego.
Some BLM terrorists declared that there would be “war” that night. However, after finding themselves greatly out-numbered and surrounded by hundreds of police and angry local citizens, many BLM terrorists decided to leave early in mid-afternoon, long before dark. The Organizer declared that “San Diego is not Portland!”. What a disappointment for them!
It is clear that they were intending to turn La Mesa into San Diego’s “autonomous zone”, much as in Portland and Seattle. The event was billed as a stand-with-Portland event.
There were several groups of defenders there to make sure the rioting and destruction of property did not happen again.
The largest contingent was coordinated via the Defend East County Facebook group. Probably there were about 150 defenders representing the various groups, scattered around town. They were not really counter-protesters. They were “defenders”, there to try to make sure that BLM did not devastate La Mesa again.
There was no vandalism and no fires. Many of the terrorists packed up and went home in mid-afternoon, long before dark when the “war” was supposed to start.
Some stayed until about 9pm, but eventually, the police left and they all left a few minutes later, concerned about their own safety for a change. (On May 30th they had burned down two banks and another major building, vandalized and looted dozens of other businesses.)
This is how you do it America, communities come together, stand down the terrorist, and they will go away.
A majority of the confused youth, behind their silly homemade masks, don’t want to die or even get hurt, they just want to do as the mob does. If the mob gets to destroy things, they will, if not, they go home.
Just like Occupy Wall Street, once the Winter comes, these roaches will go back into hiding, except where they have been allowed to take over. In addition after the elections are over and the left will have not use for them any longer, or at least until they need a diversion again, in pursuit of cultural unrest.
