Why Portland Exploded | Guest: Nancy Rommelmann | Ep 114

Matt Kibbe talks with journalist Nancy Rommelmann about her experiences covering Antifa and the riots in Portland, Oregon. From a beautiful cultural center, the city has devolved into violence and chaos over a few short years. Frustration with lockdowns, anger at injustice, hatred of Donald Trump, and the complete absence of any tools to make things better have led to young people being romanced by a nihilistic desire to tear down the whole system, including commerce, police, and even the city government itself.
