Taxpayers Association of Oregon
A mass gathering of protestors gathered in downtown Portland marching through the South Park Blocks in protest of Columbus Day. They smashed windows and toppled the statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
They broke into the entrance of the Oregon Historical Society and threw an ignited flare into the lobby.
Update: Damage to Portland Art Museum, flare thrown into building. Protesters now marching through streets. Riot declared. #PDXprotests #pdxriot #PortlandProtests #portlandriot #portland #protest #riot pic.twitter.com/DPHBt1ncrK

The news even made a President Trump Tweet (before the the site linked took it down).
Andy Ngo shared this from the people responsible:
Tonight the “indigenous” faction of antifa held a “day of rage” riot in Portland. They banned video recording as the criminal acts were planned ahead. They’ve toppled the statues of Roosevelt & Lincoln so far using chains. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/PkTqxeCLIj

On 4th of July weekend the Taxpayer Association of Oregon rallied in support of George Washington and against his statue toppling.
