WTF is Happening in Portland?

Really, I don’t know. The information is sketchy. But according to more than one source, some really strange shit is going down in Portland, Oregon. And by strange, I mean fascist, or authoritarian at least.

Apparently, people in military apparel (cops? or actual troops?) are going around in unmarked vans and arresting people en masse, without any provocation or charges.
One person said they were taken to a federal building, where he was released after demanding a lawyer and asking to actually know what he was being charged with.
Oregon governor Kate Brown has identified the men as federal law enforcement officers and she tweeted “This political theater from President Trump has nothing to do with public safety. The President is failing to lead this nation. Now he is deploying federal officers to patrol the streets of Portland in a blatant abuse of power by the federal government.” She went on to say that they should leave Portland.”
I doubt the federal government will give a shit, though.
This is very, very bad.
