(Tea Party 247) – How do the vegan far-left radicals feel about this one?
Police officers in Portland, Oregon were forced to rescue a live pig from the violent rioters last week.
Why, you might ask?
Well, it’s because the “peaceful protesters” had planned to publicly behead the pig in a dramatic gesture of anti-police rhetoric.
Yeah, no, these people totally aren’t violent. Not at all.
“In the early weeks of the riots, a pig was found abandoned near downtown Portland in the middle of the night,” the Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo reported on Friday. “Police rescued the animal. It is believed a protester was going to kill the pig as an act of anti-police protest but abandoned it last minute.”
According to the Oregonian, the perfectly innocent pig was named Betty and was one of the Yorkshire breed. Police officers found it asleep in a flower bed near the Portland waterfront.
“Someone had brought the pig there to ‘sacrifice it to end all police brutality,’” animal rights activist Mary McDonald-Lewis, who cared for the pig until police arrived, explained.
The activist told the police they had planned to behead the poor creature, saying that the “animal was going to be slaughtered so its head could be used in the protest”.
McDonald-Lewis’ comments were confirmed by Portland Police Officer Brian Pelster.
“SAV’N LIVES .. ONE HOG AT A TIME !!!” he wrote on Facebook.
“Last nights nut jobs decided they were going to sacrifice a pig at the protest and cut its head off. [Portland Police Bureau] said HELL NO and took custody of the little lady.”
Betty has thankfully been rehomed by Pelster to a nearby animal sanctuary.
“It’s going to live out its days as kind of a pet,” he added. “It’s not headed to the slaughterhouse.”
This isn’t the first time that the Portland protesters have demonstrated a penchant for pig heads as part of their violent protests.
Ngo noted in his reporting that a decapitated pig head donning a police hat was set ablaze by rioters as a dramatic message to police.
Antifa protesters dumped a bloody severed pig's head on an American flag outside the Justice Center in downtown Portland. They put a cop's hat on it and set all of it on fire. #PortlandRiots #antifa pic.twitter.com/qfAOT4ItxP

The use of imagery like decapitated heads and burning bodies by Antifa appears eerily reminiscent of the beheadings and immolation infamously perpetrated by the Islamic State terror network in the Middle East during the mid-2010s. President Trump has declared that he is seeking to similarly designate Antifa as a terrorist organization for its violent and anti-American activities over the past two months.
