Michael Yon’s Observations On Primitive Graffiti In Portland

BY Herschel Smith
1 month ago

Michael Yon is back in the states from Thailand.  His recent Patreon entry is fascinating and informative.

When you are assessing the situation in your area, Watch the Graffiti.  Make photographs.  Remember what you can.  Valuable.

As I travel through America, I will make thousands of photos of graffiti.  Watch for patterns.

Example: if I see certain graffiti in Seattle, and then see same again in DC, but nowhere else, that can be a clue.

Don’t just walk by graffiti.  That’s like walking past the prints and poo on the jungle floor without stopping when you are tiger hunting.

Often I just photograph close and also establishing shots for later study.

In this case, I stopped here in Portland to photograph.  This fellow quickly arrived and started talking about 9th Amendment, and Veteran issues.  He was aggressive, erratic, rambling like the graffiti.  He began to read for me.  Unfortunately, I did not think to ask if he wrote this.

Bottom line: this is just near the Federal Courthouse that has been attacked for about 100 days.  Many police casualties.

This scribbling is par for the base-level art and messaging in the area.  This area has the most primitive protest-graffiti I have seen in my years of war and conflict, including hundreds of violent protests, some far more violent than here.

The finest messaging I have seen has been Hong Kong, and Thailand.  You knew exactly what they wanted.  Specifically.  Not some general ramble or idea like “justice,” or “black lives matter,” or “anti-fascist.”  In Hong Kong, as example, it was FIVE DEMANDS NOT ONE LESS.  And they would list those specific demands.  Clear,  concise, and memorable.  Bite sized for meme-ability.

I watched many live stream videos of the fighting in Portland before I got here.  I still have little idea what they want after watching for several months.  In Thailand or Hong Kong, you’d know specifics in 5-10 minutes.

In 2020, I have not seen a single person analyse this graffiti.  If you have, Please leave a comment.  I want to see their findings and opinions.

I’m not aware of any analysis of the graffiti in Portland other than Michael’s.  This caused me to pause and consider what he said for a few minutes.  Allow me to extrapolate if I may.

These people are homeless, drug addled, mentally and spiritually ill and vacuous, perhaps combined with under-educated liberal arts majors who have never been held to account by a single professor, paid by outside provocateurs (like George Soros).  “Here’s another $100, do it again tonight, and come back and I’ll pay your drug or food money or apartment expenses again.”

None of these people work for a living.  None of these people can construct coherent sentences, or even coherent, meaningful art.  The images in their head are completely incongruous, mixed up and messed up, with no thoughtful or considered theoretical framework.  The people in Hong Kong, Thailand or virtually anywhere else can do better than this.

By the way, I give a little to Michael and you should consider that too.

    Communist and totalitarian organizers use the dregs of society in many cases. They are easy to convince that their horrific life situations are the fault of others. Useful idiots, to coin a phrase.

    On the other hand you can hear incoherent ramblings form Nancy Pelosi, Mazie Hirono, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, and Hank Johnson to name a few. I wonder what kind of Graffiti they would produce if left to their own devices.

    Which brings us back to “who’s funding all that?” and the societal and personal tragedies of listening to liberals when they insisted on closing institutions and limiting treatment to the mentally addled because it “wasn’t fair” to not “mainstream” them (which, possibly, was also a remotely funded effort; do we know how long “national subversion through dollar distribution” has been going on?).

    How many tribe do they have in Hong Kong? My bet is very few. In the US, however, the tribe run the education system, just as they run the Media. Thus you get Portland graffiti!!!

    The difference between Hong Kong and Seattle is the difference between an anti-communist protest and a communist protest.

    Your description of the behavior of these sorry individuals reminded me a lot of the story of Jesus and the Gergesene demoniac in Luke 8. And it should not surprise us that many of them are dealing with demonic forces -some possessed, others oppressed -given the Satanic influence their puppet masters have embraced.
    This does not excuse their violence and lawlessness; it’s just intended to remind us of what we are up against

    As someone mentioned, it’s the difference between a communist vs anti-communist protest.

    Of further note, a genuine organic movement doesn’t require the mentally ill, drug addicted and paid provacateurs to be sustained.

    Michael Yon’s observations are the first time I’ve seen someone use iconography (graffiti – http://www.cp-journal.com/iconography/) to link political movements in the US (versus criminal orgs). An interesting approach that could possibly road map who the paymasters and controllers of this movement are…well done!

    I look forward to further updates from Mr. Yon. The Intel will be good if properly consumed, analyzed, and parsed for your family and team’s needs in your sector.

    That said, we know what they want. It’s no hard. It’s not a mystery to be deciphered. They want you dead. That they will use any and all means both strategy of command level and tactics at the street level to effect your death is, well, that is war.

    Third, not that Mr. Yon is doing this but generally; stop wasting your time on those who are pointing out the hypocrisy of the Left. They are not serious men and women that are still doing this. Those types still think that there may be a political solution other than politics by other means. The Left will do anything to take power, that’s war. There is no hypocrisy in war, just wining or losing. Continuing to analyse the Left’s hypocrisy does not advance the conversation or more importantly your Intel position or your capabilities. They will be in the camps pointing out that the Left has no worms in their gruel and that don’t even have to eat gruel. They are not helping.

    I talk to sometimes up to dozens of random young people every week. They are uneducated, even the ones in college. They have a 500 to 700 word vocabulary. They can’t hold 2, let alone 3 or 4 disparate ideas simultaneously in their mind and draw a reasoned conclusion based upon those points of information/fact. They haven’t been taught how to think. This, I pray will help you to understand them. Barbarians (the uneducated and uneducable) really only know not much more than a common animal; water, food, shelter. And anything that is actually or supposed to be a threat to those basic elements of human need is good enough to fight against.

    We know who is funding them. We know who is commanding them. We know what they want. Did I mention that Antifa is being run out of Government offices in DC? Just thought that you should know this.

    Go tell somebody about Jesus today. And when you do, keep it simple for they are ignorant. There is no political cure for the spiritual maladies of the former America.

    Agreed, Fred. There’s no point in blustering on about the open and flagrant lies, hypocrisy, cheating, fraud, hatred, etc. of the Left. That’s old hat, and it only works if people actually care about morality and are interested in participating in a civil society. Nothing we can do is going to change their ways, and they will continue to get away with it (well, not ultimately anyway). We need to move beyond that established reality and prepare for things in a more serious way. We are never going to get a fair shake, so stop expecting one.

    Ain’t that the truth. I meet them at my gym. The regurgitated crap they come up with is mind boggling. I’ve often thought about throwing a couple of those cheap copies of the Constitution in my lifting bag and handing them out to these clowns. But the truth is, they wouldn’t read it anyway. The key word here is indoctrination. And we let it happen.

    Nail head, meet hammer.
    This is the mistake people have made since the beginning of time. We tend to assume the people we deal with on a daily basis have the same capacity for logic and reason that we do, even if they’re obvious nutjobs.
    Those with empathy and any kind of moral compass want to believe everyone has some kind of good inside them. The truth is, they don’t. Some people are just pure evil.

    Are we gonna let them win?

    There is no point in accusing leftoxenomorphs of hypocrisy, flagrant lies and cheating.

    Leftoxenomorphs are at war with the rest of us.

    Everything they do is geared at winning.

    THIS – IS – A – WAR.

    When you accuse a leftoxenomorph of anything bad, the leftoxenomorph doesn’t even hear you.

    Leftoxenomorphs are not even human anymore.

    Leftoxenomorphs are after power.

    The raw power of violence, aggression and brute force.

    Feudal power.

    Medieval Dark Ages feudal power.

    The power of the savage to enslave a population and exploit it.

    Leftoxenomorphs are waging war against the rest of America to bring the country to its knees, destroyed, demoralized, giving up, surrendering . . . to them.

    They will do anything for power.

    Leftoxenomorphs HAVE to destroy anything that works, soil anything that’s decent, crush the spirits of their foes, bring the “it’s no use” answer to anything that’s suggested to oppose them.

    Leftoxenomorphs long for a leftoxenomorph juggernaut that marches on regardless of anything the opposition might do.

    They dream of bringing about a leftoxenomorphzilla that can not be defeated.

    They dream of civilizational debacle and of leftoxenomorph utter conquest of the remains and the demoralized survivors.

    This is a Dark Ages like attack against America, Western civilization and the very concept of decency itself.

    “Decency? . . . We don’t need no stinking decency!!!”

    “What we need is bullshitsectionality and cultural marxism and a leftoxenomorph ant-hill with a one-hive-mind under a One World Government part of the New World Order”

    “What we need is communism.”

    If you listen to leftoxenomorphs THAT is their song.

    They are not being hypocritical about that.

    They are educating the young from kindergarten to academia on it.

    They are shouting it with spittle spraying apparent insanity from street corners.

    SJW NPC are ALL about it and nothing else.

    All they do is geared for war.

    All they do is geared for winning.

    They will say and promise and do anything to win.

    This is medieval.

    This is even pre-human.

    A warring party of chimpanzees will do anything to win.

    We are going back to the beginning, here.

    Leftoxenomorph are pure evil.

    Leftoxenomorphs are against anything good for humans.

    Leftoxenomorphs are anti-human.

    Leftoxenomorphs are the quintessential evil in human-form.

    And the contrast with the decent, tolerant and benevolent life of everyday Americans is so great that most can’t even understand neither (a) what’s at stake here and (b) what they are dealing with.

    A leftoxenomorph can shout in the corner that she’s out to destroy America and bring about marxism and the horror of the possibility is out of the reach of most Americans experience.

    It is almost as if the SJW was shouting in a frequency of sound not fit for human ears and most people were thus unable to hear her.

    That is to the benefit of the leftoxenomorphs.

    They expect their opposition to never fully prepare for the war they are giving.

    They expect their opposition to never fully launch a response.

    They expect their opposition to never fully go to war against them.

    They expect their opposition to basically surrender without a fight.

    And this is what we have today.

    Leftoxenomorphs have taken over most of the cultural mores of the country and are getting away with most all of their plans, virtually unopposed.

    We have pisslim leftoxenomorphs in Congress shouting their hate for America and Americans as if it was the most normal thing in the world.

    Can you imagine in 1943 a nazi member of Congress shouting her hate for America and Americans wearing a swastika arm-band?

    We have been brainwashed by decades of leftoxenomorph education and conditioning to look passively as our country is attacked and destroyed and we are reacting with the despair, the passivity, the Pusillanimousness and the inanity of lack of response that was imbued into us by the traitorous leftoxenomorph 5th column that has most of the country’s cultural resources safely in its pocket.

    This was in the works for more than a hundred years.

    And we let them.

    They are now very close to final triumph.

    And those on the side of decency haven’t even started to fight because most still don’t understand what is happening.

    Leftoxenomorphs have moved the Overton window so much to the left, towards concepts once insane to contemplate, towards a level of indecency and moral corruption once impossible to even mention in polite company.

    Leftoxenomorph have quasi insanity into a common day occurrence of normalcy.

    We have minors “trans” strippers.

    We have minors being “educated” in sodomy at K-12 level.

    We have 3 year olds “choosing” their “sexuality” against their parent’s will.

    We have children being told they are evil by reason of the color of their skin, if they are white, of course!

    We have looting, arson and murder being called “reparations”

    We have rabid enemies of the country in government.

    We have entire agencies infected and gatekept by leftoxenomorphism and betraying the country and acting like enemies against its citizens like the IRA and the FBI and EPA.

    We have blacks attacking anybody they fancy with the abandon of free reigning mau mau.

    People are being murdered with zero response.

    We have BLM and antifa acting unimpeded like an army of occupation.

    We have a president that has faced an insurrection from day one that is only getting worse with time.

    And there is no response to all this.

    There is no reaction.

    Just like what the more than a hundred years of leftoxenomorph miseducation prepared us.

    Leftoxenomorphs are winning, hands down.

    And we haven’t even started to . . . anything . . .

    Leftoxenomorphs are winning.

    Because decent folks are doing nothing.

    Leftoxenomorphs are winning like an infection against an organism whose immune system has completely given up and ceased to function.

    Because America was groomed for this.

    And Americans allowed ourselves to be groomed for this.

    And now we are conditioned to doubt instead of judging, to keep silent when falsely accused, to feel fundamental guilt when any bogus blame is laid on us, to give the benefit of the doubt to any low life with the stupidest and most evil notion out there, “who am I to say?”, “who’s to tell?”, “what is so wrong with that?” and there is no end to it.

    We have been conditioned to cringe and feel shame when anything at all is laid at our feet and any insulting lie is spit to our faces making us responsible of anything at all.

    We have been conditioned to feel fundamentally guilty of EVERY wrong on Earth.

    We are supposed to be evil.

    We are supposed to be “colonizers”

    We are supposed to be “settlers”

    We are supposed to be “racists”

    We are supposed to be “sexists”

    We are supposed to be “abusers”

    We are supposed to be “toxic”

    We are supposed to be “rapists”

    We are supposed to be the beneficiaries of “white supremacy”

    We are supposed to be “misogynists”

    We are supposed to be anything and all of the bad things, real or imaginary, that any low live leftoxenomorph can come up with.

    And they have dedicated their lives to this with the fanaticism of any rabid adept to any emerging religion ever.

    The amount of ignorance and meekness in today’s average American citizen is mind boggling.

    He knows nothing except that he should feel fundamentally guilty and sinful and to obey anything that’s barked at him by a leftoxenomorph.

    Grooming.

    It works.

    And we are supposed to lower ourselves to the ground and kiss their feet and feel ashamed to the marrow in our bones and apologize and crawl like maggots throwing dust to our faces and to do as we are told, as slaves, to atone for all the evil in our lives?

    Why?

    It’s all bullshit.

    All of it.

    It’s a con.

    They groomed us for this.

    They groomed us for surrender.

    They groomed us for conquest.

    They brainwashed us to defeat us and enslave us and exploit us like farm animals.

    It is not any more complicated than that.

    They have been preparing us and miseducating us since more than a hundred years ago so they can finally conquer us without a fight.

    We are being had.

    We are being conned out of our civilization and our freedoms and out of the greatest Constitutional Republic ever.

    The most rational, the most glorious, the safest and the most comfortable civilization ever is letting it all go down the drain because of . . . nothing . . . nothing but stupid self doubt and giving up to a con.

    America is the freest country in the world.

    The least racist.

    America means freedom.

    Freedom itself lives here.

    Why?

    Because America stands for freedom.

    And we are being spit the opposite of the truth to our faces and we are giving up.

    That is how stupidly tolerant we are.

    That is how stupidly benevolent we are.

    We have been conditioned to give evil the benefit of the doubt.

    “Who am I to judge?”

    You are a human being.

    That is who you are to judge!!

    Your enemies don’t seem to have a problem with judging you.

    Why do you?!

    You know that the drugged savage mau mau out there is a vermin, a low life animal almost unworthy of the bullet to end its sorry, useless, criminal life.

    So he’s black.

    Does that make him impervious to evil?

    Does that put him above other humans?

    So she’s a woman.

    Does that give her the right to throw Molotov bombs at decent folks?

    So she’s an incurable leftoxenomorph pervert full of hate for anything not leftoxenomorph.

    Does that give her the right to take your taxpayer money from the educational system to introduce and train your six year old into sodomy?

    Or tell him that he’s “toxic” because he was born with a penis and that he needs to “learn not to rape”?

    Or tell him he’s guilty of “racism” because of the color of his skin?

    How much more down into evil do we want the country to go?

    How much?

    Are we REALLY going to let them get away with it all and win?

    BLM is Astroturf: “Last summer, the Ford Foundation, one of the most powerful private foundations in the world, announced that it was organizing to channel $100 million to the Black Lives Movement over the next six years… In a statement of support, Ford called for the group to grow and prosper. “We want to nurture bold experiments and help the movement build the solid foundation that will enable it to flourish.”…
    From the beginning, the “mothers of the movement” Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi…specifically opposed uniting blacks, whites and immigrants against the brutal class-war policies of the capitalist state. Instead, the group did its best to confine anti-police violence protests within the framework of the capitalist system and push a racialist and pro-capitalist agenda.
    Even prior to 2013, however, all three of the cofounders had developed close ties to corporations, foundations, academia and/or government-sponsored agencies. Tometi, in particular, was a well-known quantity in these circles. She had spoken at the UN … had been to the White House and met with Obama liaison Heather Foster, and addressed the Aspen Institute, a high-level think tank associated with the US military and intelligence community….
    The real substance of the group’s policies is the unremitting injection of racial divisions and animosity into the movement of opposition to police violence. It aims to update the age-old tactic of divide and conquer, seeking to prevent the unity of the working class—black, white and immigrant—from challenging the capitalist system, the source of the deepening social and political oppression.
    …..The Ford Foundation—with its long history stretching from its CIA fronts in the 1940s and the promotion of black capitalism in Detroit in the aftermath of the 1967 riots—provided a financial anchor for BLM’s expansion.
    The Ford Foundation enlisted other such “philanthro-capitalists”: the Hill-Snowden Foundation, Solidaire (Ford Foundation and Leah Hunt-Hendrix, granddaughter of the oil and gas tycoon H.L. Hunt), the NoVo Foundation (started by Warren Buffett’s son Peter and daughter-in-law Jennifer Buffett in 2006), the Association of Black Foundation Executives (Kellogg Foundation and JPMorgan Chase and its Black Organization for Leadership Development [BOLD]), the Neighborhood Funders Group–Funders for Justice (also funded by Ford), among others.
    The media and the state
    While spontaneous protests began to adopt the #BLM hashtag as opposition to police violence developed, it was the promotion by the bourgeois media that brought #BLM into national prominence…. As data accumulated by killedbypolice.net and other news media sources underscored the fact that police killings were directed against poor and working-class whites as well as inner-city blacks, the issues of social inequality, poverty and class began to take center stage. The more universal slogan “All Lives Matter” came into wide use.
    BLM denounced the specter of growing class unity and decried “All Lives Matter” as illegitimate and even racist.…
    BLM personnel meanwhile were being groomed for top-level official positions. Leading Black Lives Matter spokespersons made repeated trips to the White House in 2015 and 2016 to hold meetings with President Obama and his representatives. The Democratic Party was conferring official authority upon the group. …
    Later in July, at a separate meeting with Obama, Mckesson and Packnett agreed that Packnett would serve as an official representative on Obama’s Task Force for 21st Century Policing…
    These remarkable meetings of top Black Lives Matter associates with the US president and his top police agencies demonstrated that the group had no objection to being incorporated into the state apparatus. Indeed, a “seat at the table” was their aim….BLM’s hostility to the working class and reactionary rhetoric play an ever more dangerous role in the current political climate, dovetailing with the extreme right wing and legitimizing racialism.
    Their assessment of the election of Donald Trump demonized the white working class, a view also promoted by Hillary Clinton, the New York Times and other pro-Democratic Party media. Utterly hostile to the unification of the working class against the class-war policies of the new government, BLM sees the possibility of “opportunities” under the Trump administration. Vowing to train 300 black leaders to take positions on “school boards, city councils, neighborhood councils, and every branch of government,” the group looks to a further political future within the Democratic Party.”
    (“Black Lives Matter cashes in on black capitalism”, World Socialist Web Site)

    Of course, all authoritarians are fighting each other for power, so this is one faction of Socialists digging up dirt on another faction of Socialists…
