WATCH: Black Lives Matter Rioters in Portland Tear Down Statues of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt

Warn bystanders that if they do not support the Black Lives Matter movement they should 'f— off...'

Portland rioters tore down historical statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, shattered the entrance to the Oregon Historical Society, and vandalized several storefronts during the “Day of Rage” protest.

Organizers created the “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage” in response to Columbus Day, which is a federally recognized holiday.
