When did the left lose its last shred of sanity? Portland, Oregon, has become a smoldering war zone after more than 60 straight days of protests in the city, forcing President Donald Trump to finally send in law enforcement from the U.S. Marshals Service and the Department of Homeland Security, among other federal agencies. Instead of applauding the attempt at restoring law and order, stories began circulating about innocent protestors being pulled into unmarked cars by “secret police” in violation of their Constitutional rights. That narrative has somehow gained traction despite the ongoing violent unrest, including the siege at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in Portland where Trump sent in federal agents to defend federal property.
