The National Guard has been patrolling the streets of Washington, DC for months because of a Democrat fantasy about right wing violence that has never materialized.
Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, the far left is still acting out in violent ways, basically terrorizing the city. This week, they actually set fire to a federal courthouse.
Why is the National Guard in DC? And where are all the Democrats who are supposedly so worried about domestic terrorism?
FOX News reports:
Portland rioters draw law enforcement response near federal courthouse: report
Downtown Portland, Oregon, erupted in violence yet again Thursday night, drawing tear gas and smoke bombs from federal officers who were deployed to quell the unrest, according to a report.
Rioters set fires and smashed windows in the area of the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse until being driven away by federal officers, OregonLive.com reported.
The courthouse is often defended by the Federal Protective Service but it wasn’t immediately clear if FPS personnel were the officers involved in Thursday’s action. Portland city police and Oregon state police have also been deployed during past riots in the city.
The crowd later made a return to the area, managing to break some courthouse windows and set another fire, the report said.
Whether anyone was arrested or injured was not immediately clear.

Protesters assembled in front of the downtown federal courthouse tonight. Old patterns emerge. This is the second push of federal officers clearing the park with flash bangs, less lethal munitions, and gas. pic.twitter.com/78l2w6LtrA

This is the bottom line:
Imagine if a version of the Capitol riot were happening … every night — for 8 months straight, but was somehow not being reported in the major media. That’s basically what’s been happening in Portland. pic.twitter.com/2ncpivdVbO

Democrats have politicized law enforcement and security. It’s despicable.
