2. Good God.

These people are sick beyond measure.

Can’t wait for the original hippie Jesus to come back and straighten out these “Christians.”

The city is in the midst of an internal investigation into the use of a far-right, anti-protester meme in a PPB training presentation.
According to the city, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) training presentation was created at some point in 2018, but was re-discovered by a PPB employee in September 2021 while reviewing records requested through a lawsuit against the city. The entire presentation appears to be training for crowd control tactics, those used by PPB to quash demonstrations. The city chose to make the presentation public Friday, since it will also be shared in public court filings.

The image depicts an armored person in a black helmet punching another person (who appears to be a lot less armored) in the head. The image is layered with text, which reads:

"And the Lord said...
Woe be unto you, dirty hippy;
Four thou stinketh of patchouli and BO;
For thou talk of Marx, yet know him not;
For thous hast bills, yet have not paid;
For thou hast dreadlocks and white skin.

And so I shall send among you,
My humble servants with hat, and with bat;
That they may christen your heads with hickory'
And anoint your faces with pepper spray.

And one thou hast been cuffed and stuffed;
Once thou has been stitched and bandaged;
Perhaps thou shall learn,
I'm tired of your shit.

Amen."


According to the website Know Your Meme, this image has been called the "Prayer of the Alt-Knight" and is attributed to a far-right activist named Kyle Chapman (also known as "Based Stickman". Chapman is the founder of a group called the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights, which the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as the “tactical defense arm” of the Proud Boys.

9. That is consistent with many people's experiences during 2020

I can now look forward to this MLK Day weekend as the trolls once again descend to support this un-American ugliness and complain about people objecting to being beaten in the streets by these uniformed thugs.
