The anarchist violence in Portland is a myth.
We know this because no less a light than jerrold nadler told us so…
…uh, wait. Actually, you couldn’t get less of a light than jerrold nadler, could you?
In fact, things have gotten so bad in Portland that even its idiot, lunatic-left Mayor, ted wheeler, has had to stop playing let’s-pretend and acknowledge the disaster his city has become.
From Brie Stimson’s article at foxnews.com:
“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said in a news conference with Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell.
“Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are,” he said. “You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”
Wow, what a guy.
First, wheeler not only allows the anarchists, “Black Lives Matter” radicals/extortionists and assorted street thugs to take over and decimate parts of downtown Portland, he tacitly supports them.
Then, for over two months, as the carnage continues, he finds ways of rationalizing/apologizing for their actions, while attacking the people who speak against it.
And now, after giving them a green light, thus emboldening them further and further to the point where they tried to incinerate a building with people inside – the hated police, of course – what is wheeler’s focus? Is it on the attempted murder? On the ruination of the city? On the insanity of demanding there be no police?
Nope, nope and nope.
Instead, wheeler’s big concern is the possibility that this could help Donald Trump. That’s the issue that stands out more than any other.
Portland’s voters elected this idiot Mayor. And it elected an all-Democrat City Council – just as left as wheeler is – to back him up.
They, therefore, deserve what they are getting. And are they ever getting it.
