Moms are coming to the rescue in Portland, Oregon where federal troopers are storming the streets.
Self-identified Moms have come out en masse in July 2020 to protest Trump’s order of sending in federal troops to take back control of cities where Black Lives Matter (#BLM) protests, fueled by the senseless killing of George Floyd in May 2020 by Minneapolis police, continue. These federal troopers are unidentified, have taken protestors into unmarked vehicles, and have been accused of “blatant abuse of power.”
According to a July 22, 2020 story in the Washington Post, “Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) has for days called for the immediate removal of federal troops.”
It’s hard to believe that we’ve come to this. We are definitely living in dangerous times. But, never fear, the Moms are here! Not only are they setting a great example of courage, the Moms are also showing us the importance of fighting against what is looking more and more like authoritarian rule.
Thank you, Moms.Follow
