Update (Feb. 1): The ringleader of the Portland anarchists, Micah Rhodes (FB; Twitter) turns out to be an alleged child rapist (h/t Robert Stacy McCain). Rhodes appears several times in this video, starting at 0:56, 1:27, and 2:10. From his FB account, it appears he is (or at least was) a student at Portland State University. He indicates he prefers being called “Jullian” or “Jules,” so let’s call this “Rhodes scholar” something else! More on the sex-abuse charges leveled against Rhodes here and here.
Update 2 (Feb. 7): A grand jury has indicted Rhodes on five counts of sex abuse, according to this report by a local TV station. Fun fact: apparently Rhodes likes boys and girls.

Even in uber-liberal Portland, Oregon, there is only so much ordinary liberals are willing to take from the leftist degenerates who Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has accurately termed “anarchists” — who stage wildcat “direct actions” which shut down civil society, in an effort to bend others to their will.
Upset that police employed a firm hand in shutting down their disruptive Jan. 20 Inauguration Day protest, on Monday, Jan. 23, the anarchists vowed that if the mayor did not immediately fire the police chief, they’d shut down the city. Unless the mayor capitulated, “nothing moves Wednesday,” they vowed.
And true to their word, nothing did move in Portland on Wednesday, in parts of the city, for a considerable period of time, as anarchists blocked traffic at intersections, an anarchist action which ended in the arrest of 12 adults and two juveniles.
This video, shot by Portland’s Fox 12 (KPTV), of police officers taking down some of the protesters, triggering shouts of approval from bystanders, has gone viral, thanks in part to Gateway Pundit (Jim Hoft). But even more informative in showing the reaction of ordinary liberals to such anarchy is this video credited to C.S.C. Media Group USA.
The following video combines highlights from the C.S.C. video with the Fox 12 video and, to highlight the cowardice of the protesters (they don’t stand their ground in front of cars, and they run at the first sign of trouble), clips of Brave Sir Robin of Monty Python fame. Enjoy!
When you’re done watching, please participate in the poll asking who is more cowardly: Brave Sir Robin, or the Portland anarchists?:
