Black Lives Matter protests in Portland turned from the typical ugly to another kind of ugly as protesters turned to bibles and American flags, torching them in front of a Federal Courthouse.
A video posted on Twitter showings the protesters tossing Bibles and American flags into the flames.
Many have been offended by these antics questioning the link between burning bibles and resolving racial bias in the police departments.
“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 continued.
Another user saw this as another rewriting of history.
“There is a purpose to this. The protesters are signaling they will dismantle and replace our whole entire narrative,” tweeted another user.
Protests broke out across the US after the murder of George Floyd while under police custody and some states have been calling for the defunding of the police and a different option for law enforcement.
