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.”

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
