Ferguson protesters spent the weekend after Christmas chanting “Deck The Halls With Rows of Dead Cops” just one week after the execution-style murders of New York City police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

Anti-police protesters in Portland, Oregon sang parody Christmas carols Saturday night near Christmas decorations on Peacock Lane in the notoriously liberal city, including “Deck The Halls With Rows of Dead Cops.”

Ramos and Liu were killed December 20 by Ismaaiyl Brinsley, reportedly in retaliation for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

Calling for cop murder has been a familiar refrain among Ferguson protesters. As The Daily Caller reported, protesters at an Al Sharpton-led march in the Murray Hill neighborhood of New York City chanted “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now” prior to the killing of Ramos and Liu.

St. Louis-based agitator Bassem Massri, who was invited to give input to the Department of Justice after the Brown shooting, chanted “Pigs in a blanket smell like bacon” with his compatriots at a demonstration in the aftermath of the Ramos-Liu shooting.
