Black Lives Matter activists will find it increasingly difficult to prove their movement is pacifist. For more than two months now, riots have plagued the United States, and particularly the city of Portland, Oregon, where US President Donald Trump has been forced to deploy numerous federal agents to maintain order.
On the night of Friday July 31 to Saturday August 1, racial activists highlighted their symbolic violence aimed at white Christians by burning Bibles and an American flag, reported the New York Post.
The scene, extensively filmed and shared on social networks, shocked the United States. Several hooded activists are seen setting a Bible on fire, then covering it with the American flag, and setting it alight, shouting “F*ck Trump!” in front of the Portland courthouse.
In another video, other activists are seen, carrying Black Lives Matter signs, lighting a large bonfire made up of an assortment of trash and wood panels stolen from neighborhood businesses, while throwing more Bibles in the flames.

According to several journalists present on the spot, the Black Lives Matter activists, mixed with Antifa activists, tried to provoke the federal police forces stationed inside the courthouse. The rioters even violently hit the garage door of the building with a makeshift ram and set garbage cans on fire.
A few days earlier, rioters in Portland had set fire to a pig’s head wearing a police cap and an American flag. Regularly, racial activists try to provoke the police by throwing them with excrement, bleach, bricks or even batteries, reported the New York Post.
