Russel Honore on Feds in Portland: 'What kind of bullsh-t is this!?'

Extremely important segment, please watch in full, from the first quote from the Oregon AG filing suit, to Honoré, to Williams' reference to Timothy Snyder's book On Tyranny:

https://www.msnbc.com/11th-hour/watch/russel-honore-on-feds-in-portland-what-kind-of-bullsh-t-is-this-88101445932

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré is blasting the Trump administration for deploying anonymous federal agents into Portland, OR as Trump officials suggest they might do the same in more U.S. cities.


Honoré is amazing as usual here, says Wolfe should be run out of Washington, has no business being in charge of Homeland Security, and says the federal forces in Portland are a lawless group who wear militarized uniforms to intimidate people, to look like warriors, and aren't good representatives of law enforcement.

Brian Williams pulls no punches either: "When we say Feds what we mean is no name name tags, not easily identifiable militarized camo-wearing quasi-secret police force that our friend Steve Schmidt has called 'federal stormtroopers and jackbooted thugs.'"

Finally: Timothy Snyder's On Tyranny:

2. I was listening to Honore, an he was seriously pissed...

He considered it just about a personal insult and threat that cops are wearing military uniforms without ID. Police and military are two entirely different functions and should never be confused.

8. That was covered in "The Hunt for Red October" when Jack Ryan (CIA) came about the sub

in a Navy officers uniform and crew took offense with that until they were informed he was indeed Navy and was that rank.

10. I'll always respect Honore, when the first thing he said is weapons down. These are survivors &

citizens, not foreign fighters. What he did personally after that, I have no idea. Things didn't get "better" - where did all the money actually go? That's not on him, but on State Gov't.

We know Hayley Barbour stole funds mean to rebuilt MS after Katrina - $780 billion - and people in MS STILL have sewage running down the middle of the street, using outhouses, no running water or electricity.

Can't get people used to a simple standard of living, now can we?

9. My favorite line from the "Hunt For Red October" should be on the lip of every GOP member.

Because that exactly what Trump has done.





Wouldn't you love to see this weaved into a Lincoln Project ad.

that Joe will find some kind of position for Gen. Honoré in his administration.

12. If this is allowed to continue and expand, then indeed; the end has come. We are done.

13. I'm constantly trying to tell myself the water isn't boiling yet - not knowing if I'm in denial or

if I'm overreacting. I don't know what's the rational outcome of 4 years of Trump.
