A group of Antifa protesters in Portland, Oregon harassed an old man this week for disobeying their traffic orders, with apparently no action taken against them by the Portland police.

A report from the Wall Street Journal from August details the a wave of anarchy taking over Portland, Oregon. Antifa and Black Lives Matters protests have been taking to the street and blocking traffic in an effort to bring attention to various social issues.
A mob surrounded ICE’s office in Southwest Portland June 19. They barricaded the exits and blocked the driveway. They sent “guards” to patrol the doors, trapping workers inside. At night they laid on the street, stopping traffic at a critical junction near a hospital. Police stayed away. “At this time I am denying your request for additional resources,” the Portland Police Bureau’s deputy chief, Robert Day, wrote to federal officers pleading for help. Hours later, the remaining ICE workers were finally evacuated by a small federal police team. The facility shut down for more than a week.
