Far-left activists in Portland with the support of city council member @JoAnnPDX is trying to get a contracted concrete city worker fired for having a thin blue line flag on his truck. Look to Portland to see the Twitter tyrannical dystopia implemented in real life. pic.twitter.com/U7Aq5KKH1a — Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) May 28, 2021 A photo surfaced online showing an Oregon Concrete Solutions-branded truck with an emblem of the Thin Blue Line flag affixed to the front driver’s side panel. The Thin Blue Line decal shows an American flag with a blue line running through the stripes. It is meant to show support for police officers and law enforcement.
Oregon Concrete Solutions, also known as Sidewalk Solutions, is based in Portland. The small-sized business has just a handful of employees.
Hardesty’s office and the Portland Bureau of Transportation were made aware that the contractor’s Thin Blue Line decal was displayed while working for PBOT.
“The thin blue line imagery is viewed by many in our community as a symbol of white supremacy that has been prominently displayed by those that oppose the Black Lives Matter racial justice movement and we understand this is causing distress in the community,” Hardesty said via press statement Thursday. “You can count me as one of the many Portlanders that finds this imagery deeply offensive,” she added Thursday evening on Twitter.
She noted that PBOT reached out to the contractor and asked the small concrete company not to display the pro-police symbol while performing work for the city.
“Unfortunately, they declined, and we are limited in our ability to address this issue under our existing contracts and policies,” Hardesty wrote in the release.
Hardesty also said the “incident is proof we have more work to do for Portland to live up to last year’s anti-racism resolution, including holding City contractors to the same standards we hold City government.”

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
