Portland, Oregon has been ground zero for some of the most violent anti-Trump protests. There have been reports of random destruction, including the smashing of car windows. Now we find out more than half of the dopes who have been arrested didn’t even vote.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Report: Most of those arrested in Portland anti-Trump protests didn’t vote
County records show more than half of the anti-Trump protesters arrested in Portland, Ore., last week didn’t actually vote in the election, according to a local TV station.
WKGW reported 69 of the 112 people arrested in recent protests either weren’t registered to vote or didn’t turn in a ballot. The TV station compared the names of the people arrested by police and compared them to state voter logs compiled by Multnomah County elections officials.
According to the report, 34 of the people arrested didn’t return a ballot and 35 of them weren’t registered to vote in the state. The station is still working to verify 17 of the protesters’ voting records.
Of the 112 arrested, 25 voted.
This shouldn’t really surprise anyone. Many of the people participating in the protests are anarchists. They just want to make trouble. The riots are an excuse to act out violently.
Some of them are probably professional protesters, too.
