Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Wall of grandma: Two elderly women who stood up to the mob in Portland have become heroes in the neighborhood”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Yesterday, Allahpundit wrote about the two elderly women in Portland who stood up to the mob vandalizing and setting fires at a police precinct. Videos of the two women being confronted and splattered with paint by the crowd circulated widely on social media including by Portland police:

I referred to the unknown woman as the wall of grandma because despite being alone and being harassed, she stood up to the entire crowd.

KGW 8 tracked down both women, who live in the neighborhood near the police precinct that was being vandalized. Penny is 73-years-old and was the woman who put out a fire set in a trash can. “Wednesday night they broke windows and it was a real mess,” she told KGW. She added, “I’m very, very pro Black Lives Matter but I just think that the vandalism sabotages the message.”

After Penny put out the fire, someone came up and stole her fire extinguisher while another protester used a paint can to try to smash the plywood outside the precinct. Then the protesters lit the fire again.
