Going into the tax day rally in Portland, local Tea Party organizers had concerns about security:
Oregon Tea Party members are taking a pledge of nonviolence for Friday afternoon’s Portland-area tax day rallies.
Party officials said they feared “union supporters” might try to stir up trouble at the rallies in Pioneer Courthouse Square and in other parts of the city on the day federal income taxes are traditionally due.
Those concerns were clearly unfounded because the progressive protesters who showed up were the epitome of decorum. Oh, wait. Then there is this video. The easily offended should not click.

But clearly there would be some respect for the National Anthem, right?
Or at least some liberal tolerance for racial diversity in the debate of ideas, righ….oh, forget it….
