'We Are Living In A Fascistic Nightmare!' Screams Rioter Given Free Rein To Do Anything He Pleases On Streets Of Portland For Weeks

PORTLAND, OR—Sources indicate that a rioter, who had been given free rein by local authorities to do whatever he pleases on the streets of Portland for weeks, has been screaming at the top of his lungs for hours to get his message out that he believes we are all living in a fascistic nightmare.

The man, who was wearing a spiked leather jacket replete with anarchist symbols and wielding a large, heavy brick, had been marching down the streets of Portland smashing windows, setting fires, and throwing fireworks at retreating police officers while screaming non-stop for hours about how repressed all of us are under a “Cheeto Mussolini who wants to kill all trans people” and “oppressive system of fascism.”

When assembled media figures asked the man to elaborate with simple questions like “what is fascism?” and “what specific actions of the president lead you to believe he is acting like a dictator?”, the man only became more enraged and began setting even more fires.

At publishing time, local authorities had sent uniformed social workers to ask the man how the city of Portland could be less fascist and meet his perceived need for less fascism.

This behavior is explained very well by https://slatestarcodex.com/2014/09/30/i-can-tolerate-anything-except-the-outgroup/

The obvious thing is for everyone to be forced to wear masks.

Funny thing is the guy with the Mohawk and brick looks like one of my punk friends from highschool/college.

He had some extreme views but they definitely weren't left.

One was to force sterilize the illegal mexicans coming into texas to drop babies. All of them.

Most punkrockers I've ever known really just wanted to be left alone to do their own thing, usually something degenerate by societal norms. In hindsight I find it strange so many push the image but are lefties rather than libertarians.
