Several people on the internet have asked that same treatment be given to Antifa rioters as was given to Capitol protesters after a violent mob vandalized the Democratic Party headquarter in Oregon, set ablaze national flags outside state capitols, and yelled anti-Joe Biden slurs hours after the 46th president took oath of office in DC. The members of the militant left-wing-group gathered in several cities of the US and soon their protests turned violent, which resulted in the firing of tear gas by police. Antifa rioters marched down in the city of Portland while carrying protest banners. One of the banners carried a chilling message that read, “We don't want Biden, we want revenge”, The Sun reported. Authorities said that the anarchists not only smashed and vandalized the windows of the Democratic Party HQ in the city, they also threw rocks and eggs at the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, which forced federal cops to fire tear gas at them. It has been said that around 200 rioters were present outside the building late Wednesday night, January 20. While a group in Denver, Colorado, yelled, “No more cops in our community… f*** the pigs".

Eight were arrested in Portland on suspicion of offenses including rioting and reckless burning, while two were arrested in Seattle, police said.

Denver7 earlier reported that three protests had been planned for the inauguration day at or around the Colorado State Capitol. It was said that one protest would be carried out by Black Lives Matter and Antifa members, the second one was to be part of an anti-government movement, and the third called, "Colorado Inauguration March". "Our goal is to put pressure on elected officials and to remind the community that Biden and Harris did win but we still have to keep going, we still have to fight for change,” Iris Butler, an organizer of the Colorado Inauguration March, said. Protesters were also seen outside the Sacramento Capitol while screaming, “F*** you to the racist system, F*** you", and “No prisons, no walls - no USA at all.”

Taking to Twitter, Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary, wrote, “These rioters should be treated the same as the Capitol rioters. There is no difference. Use social media. Facial recognition. Find them, arrest them and put them on trial. Unfortunately, in Portland, the liberal DA will release most w no charges.”

“Now that the nation's attention no longer can be focused on Trump, the Biden/Harris admin's treatment of left-wing extremism will emerge into the spotlight.  And so will their even-handedness or lack thereof.  Biden's claim to want of achieve "unity" will be made or broken there,” another user tweeted. “Agreed. They should all be rounded up and jailed. Lawlessness cannot be deemed not important and go unchallenged,” the second user said.



 

 



 

 



 

“What?! I thought they would stop the destruction if Biden won! Wow implosion,” the third user expressed their shock over the violence while the fourth added: “While democrats praise them, raise money to bail them out of jail, and pretend their cause is somehow noble. Antifa is the brainless poster-child of the Democratic Party. And their leadership refuses to acknowledge or do anything about them. Their hypocrisy is constant.”



 

 



 

However, there were a few on Twitter, who did not seem convinced with the rest. One such person said, “Did they get directions from President? Did anyone die or get hurt ? Not justifying. I agree punish them severely. Lets not try and compare this to the calamity that Trump orchestrated.” The second user noted, “Well just a few off the top of my head: They weren’t incited by the POTUS and his minions. They weren’t recruited/funded by the GOP party apparatus and donor elites. They weren’t planning to assassinate elected officials or overturn a democratic election.”
