PLEASANTON, TX- Portland, Oregon has become the poster child for the wacky, hard-left Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioting across the country, which is now well into its third month.
In some ways, the antics in Portland closely resembles the 1980’s movie starring Kurt Russell, “Escape From New York.”
Reality Defense, or RDI saw this as an opportunity to have a Portland-based event to add to their fall training lineup.
RDI is a training and consulting company which focuses on the preparation and response to an attack on either an individual or organization. The training component gives “attendees the building blocks necessary to protect themselves and their loved ones.”
“team will develop an action plan for your organization that centers around the development of…Emergency Action Plan (EAP).”
RDI describes its mission as:
“…to prepare individuals and organizations to not only survive, but to win a violent encounter should it occur.”
So, what exactly does the team have planned? “Escape from Portland.”
Pretty timely, right?
The team, which consists of former military operators and police officers, were looking for a “fun-type” event to add to their fall events. As they sat in their headquarters building adjacent to their training range in South Texas, one of the team members said:
“Wait…how about something we are all watching unfold daily? What if we do an “Escape from Portland” [theme?]
Silence filled the room, not from shock, but because the idea was perfect. So that was it…Escape from Portland.
How to do so? Turn it into a 5-weapon contest—AR15, pistol, revolver, shotgun and crossbow. Each member of the 5-man team will be assigned one of those weapons, and run a timed course of fire through junk cars and burning debris to help their team accomplish their goal, “Escape from Portland.”
The winning team will each receive a new Dreadnaught Industries AR15, the 2nd place team each get a pistol, while the 3rd place team will each receive a fully equipped IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit).
Or course, it’s going to be Halloween, so the course has to be run in the best costume one can come up with. So, what is the incentive? How about $300 cash for first prize in the costume contest.
Of course it didn’t take long for word to get out there. We got our first ‘haters’ emails on Friday (complete with spelling and grammar errors):
“This makes a mockery of those of us peaceful protestors who is being called rioters every knight by those pig police. They need too just give us the city because if anyone should leave Portland its shuld be them.”
“Leave it to a bunch of Texas racists to try and insert their microaggressions into our social battle in Portland. How dare they make a mockery of us. We are putting our lives on the line for freedom up here.”
