Camouflaged federal agents have descended on Portland. Trump's DHS is out of control. The Border Patrol are picking up, interrogating and arresting people without probable cause, far from the national border.
We had similar episodes happen a few months ago in San Diego, unmarked vans with insignia less agents randomly picking people off the street. They have blinded innocent people and inflicted serious injuries with "less than lethal rounds."
These secret police have gone after innocent people walking and peaceful protesters. They also have targeted journalists. I would say this is how the fascist state starts but it has been happening for far too long.
These are the same jackboots who clear a square of peaceful protesters with batons and tear gas based on violent actions of other people, on a completely different day, so that the President can hold his bible in front of a church and get his picture taken.
Amazing how quickly our legal rights vanish when the autocrats get scared.
