It seems that pigs heads aren’t the only thing being set ablaze in Portland, Ore. On Saturday, video emerged of Antifa/BLM terrorists burning a stack of Bibles in front of the federal courthouse there.

“Public gatherings to burn Bibles: OK Public gatherings to read Bibles: BANNED,” one Twitter user grimly declared, sharing a video posted by Ian Miles Cheong.

Here’s the video:

The New York Post reports that some of the protesters were holding “Black Lives Matter” signs while others tossed copies of the Holy Scripture onto a raging bonfire. The video, which has gone viral, had more than 1.8 million views and thousands of retweets. From the Post:

“Now we move to the book burning phase,” said Donald Trump Jr. in a tweet Saturday. “I’m pretty sure ANTIFA doesn’t actually stand for what they say it stands for. Maybe just remove the anti part of [their] name and it’s perfect,” he wrote.

The fire was later put out by members of Moms United for Black Lives Matter, who doused the flames with bottles of water and stomped on the embers, according to KOIN 6, a local CBS affiliate television station in Portland.

Keep in mind that Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization.

In another tweet, Cheong noted: “I don’t know what burning the Bible has to do with protesting against police brutality. Do not be under the illusion that these protests and riots are anything but an attempt to dismantle all of Western Civilization and upend centuries of tradition and freedom of religion.

He’s right. This has nothing to do with George Floyd. It has everything to do with hatred of America and the desire to foment violence, bloodshed, and a second civil war.

Perhaps, since Portland Mayor Tom Wheeler loves these terrorists so much and doesn’t give a damn if the city is destroyed, President Trump should build a wall around the city, give patriots living there a window in which to leave, and let the radicals burn the rest to the ground. Call it a win-win if you can get past the bitter irony.
