My question is why is Ted Cruz the only Congressman demanding an investigation? This is NOT free speech, it’s violence, it’s domestic terrorism, and it’s dangerous to our society.

The chief of police in Portland, Danielle Outlaw, should, along with mayor Ted Wheeler, be arrested, tried and convicted for actively promoting violence.

Good for you Ted Cruz! This is such a disgusting act. This is a glimpse of what life would be like if we became a socialist country. Antifa claims to fight against fascism, but THEY are actually fascists. The left ignores these kinds of attacks routinely because they want to suppress conservative values and oppress Republicans.

There’s simply not enough footage being shown in MSM about the sheer numbers in the streets in places like Portland. That’s not protesting – it’s unfettered chaos. No one in any position of responsibility for a city’s prosperity and its citizen’s well-being would allow these communist mobs to run amok unless they were at least sympathetic or at worst complicit. Senator Cruz is on point here.

Soros, titular head of the international left, can actually remember how powerful Hitler’s brown shirts were in 1930′s Germany. One may wonder if his current black shirts, Antifa, will receive the same fate as, the brown shirts when they were no longer useful to the National Socialist Workers Party. Research, the night of the long knives, for yourself.
