Liberal activists in Portland, Oregon, were caught going nuclear on minority cops–spewing hateful, racist threats and rants at officers, just for doing their job.
According to OregonLive, liberal protesters descended on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, Oregon, in order to show their support for abolishing the department.
But OregonLive reports that, when protesters came across nonwhite police officers, they went ballistic. OregonLive reported:
Marshall Runkel, chief of staff for Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, on Tuesday confirmed he heard reports from Department of Homeland Security officials and protesters about racially-tinged verbal altercations between officers and protesters. A representative of Abolish ICE PDX, an occupier group led in part by people of color, declined to comment.
In emails obtained by the newsroom, one African American officer reported to an administrator that protesters “began yelling racial slurs” at him, including the N-word. The officer said he was also called a “blood traitor” and an Uncle Tom, a derogatory term implying a black person is acting subservient to whites for money or prestige.
“These racial slurs have been directed at me throughout the entire length of the deployment,” the officer wrote.
Another officer, who is a woman of Hispanic and Native American descent, said she was called derogatory terms for Hispanic people and told she is “a weak female” and a “traitor.”
“I was berated for so long I can’t even remember everything that was told to me,” the officer wrote…
A third officer reported that he and other federal agents had been “insulted and harassed almost nonstop” by demonstrators, and were told they are murderers, rapists and Nazis, the emails show.
“They have yelled continuously that they hope we die, they hope our families die,” the officer wrote.
Mayor Ted Wheeler of Portland told demonstrators to “peacefully” leave their camps near the ICE office soon after.
