The Democrat Party headquarters was vandalized by rioters in Portland, Oregon, Sunday night, including graffiti that said “F—k Biden” and “No more presidents.”

Independent journalists posted video of the destruction on Twitter, showing the headquarters of the Democratic Party’s building in Multnomah County, Oregon, with a number of windows smashed and additional graffiti stating, “BLM” and “ACAB.”

Independent journalist Andy Ngo posted a flyer on his Twitter account that was reportedly a call to action for local Antifa members. The flyer claimed the event was anonymously organized and included “no good presidents” and “in solidarity with BLM.”

The words “No streamers, No megaphones, No masters” was also written in bold letters at the bottom of the advertisement.

According to Ngo, the profane graffiti was pained over almost immediately after the attack.

Portland police officers made at least one arrest Sunday.

The Pacific Northwest city has been the target of destructive rioting and vandalism since George Floyd died while in custody of the Minneapolis Police Department in May. After months of Portland police struggling to contain the rioters, Oregon Governor Kate Brown activated the National Guard for the first time last week.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s office announced the presence of additional law enforcement, saying Governor Brown was responding to acts of violence to “maintain public order and ensure community safety,” Fox News reported.

“Guard members are trained in crowd control and will be riding with local response teams. They are dressed in military style garb, which is their uniform,” the Sheriff’s office said. “Oregon National Guard members are civilian community members helping to protect us. We don’t take this decision lightly.”
