As civil unrest continues in the city, another viral video from Portland is circulating social media, recorded by a protester filming an arrest of a female Antifa activist who accidentally misgendered a Portland police officer.
The person filming asks a question concerning the nature in which the detained suspect was processed before being led into a police van. In the short clip, the person filming asks her male companion “Is there a female officer present to do this?”
“Good question,” answers her male companion. “Is there a female officer present while you’re patting her down?”
The officer promptly replied, “How do you know that I don’t identify as a female?”
“F***ing smarta***,” responded the camerawoman’s male companions as the officer’s colleagues erupt in laughter.
As the detained woman is taken to the back of the police van, a distant protester yells “we hate you,” in what was termed “childish” on social media.

The video was warmly received on social media, after footage of a different nature painted a far bleaker picture of the unabated violence to continue in Portland since late May.
Social media users also basked in giving rioters and protesters a taste of their ideological medicine.
“Apparently they don’t like it when their ideology is turned back on them. Hilarious!” One person said.
While another responded, citing Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals:’ “One of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals: RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” Didn’t think that could be turned against them, did they?”

President Donald Trump has furiously condemned the ceaseless protesting and damage to Federal buildings in the Oregon city, which is famed for being a hotbed of radical left-wing activity. Disturbances began with the in-custody killing of George Floyd in late May–and even saw the short-lived formation of an anarchist commune until, of course, it began to encroach upon the Mayor’s condominium.
