Welcome to Antifastan

Remind me never to visit Portland, Oregon. Long associated with the brand of outré hipster leftism deliciously satirized in TV’s Portlandia, Oregon’s largest city is now a zone of mass political violence. It isn’t quite Beirut-on-the-Willamette, to be sure. No suicide bombs are ripping through the farmers’ market at Shemanski Park, and the city’s radicals don’t store rockets in schools and hospitals.
