Portland Mayor Attends Portland “Protests”, Gives Stamp Of Approval To Attacking Federal Property And Employees

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’m all for Los Federales just leaving the city of Portland and letting it destroy itself, then sending a bill to the city for the destruction of federal property, but, on the flip side, they should not be allowed to destroy federal property with impunity

That was the headline yesterday. It’s changed a bit since if you click on the link

There’s something that the news outlet, which is a Portland TV station, forgot

Mayor Ted Wheeler, a Democrat, said it was the first time he’d been tear gassed and appeared slightly dazed and coughed as he put on a pair of goggles someone handed him and drank water. He didn’t leave his spot at the front, however, and continued to take gas. Around Wheeler, the protest raged, with demonstrators lighting a large fire in the space between the fence and the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse and the pop-pop-pop of federal agents deploying tear gas and stun grenades into the crowd.

If you’re lighting things on fire, you aren’t protesting peaceably anymore. If Wheeler doesn’t want the federal officers in Portland, then he should tell people to stop attacking the federal center and federal employees. Stop the vandalism. Stop the property destruction. Stop tearing down fencing, stop throwing things, stop trying to break in. It’s that simple. It’s cause and effect: the violent hooligans attacked the federal buildings, hence, federal officers came.

Oh, BTW, the protesters jeered Wheeler and called for him to resign.

Protesters in the crowd held signs aloft that read “Tear Gas Ted” in reference to the Portland Police Bureau’s use of the substance before federal agents arrived. When the mayor left the protest, around 12:40 a.m., some protesters surrounded him and shouted angrily at him as he walked away. One person shouted, “You’ve got to be here every single night!”

Why isn’t Ted social distancing? You can see plenty of video in Andy’s tweets showing the violence and arson, such as here and here, including setting a Comrade on fire.


Downtown Portland business owners feel negative impacts of continued nightly protests

What happens when all these businesses, and those in other parts of the city, flee? The owners may “support the purpose of the protests”, they don’t want their businesses trashed and know that few are going to want to come to the area.
