Members of Antifa trashed Portland, Oregon, again on Friday as part of a New Year’s Day riot that resulted in looted businesses and fires. CBS-affiliate KOIN reported that a riot was declared in downtown Portland Thursday night as Antifa gathered and threw fireworks and Molotov cocktails. They also broke windows, set fires, and looted businesses in what amounts to at least tens of thousands of dollars of damage. “At least two Molotov cocktail-style firebombs were thrown,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement the following day. “Large, commercial grade aerial fireworks were launched at the Federal Courthouse and the Justice Center. Some individuals tried to use tools to break into the Justice Center but were not successful.”
