Portland’s Ted Wheeler, mayor of the certifiably craziest and meanest city in America, won’t admit that he quietly encourages mob rule in his city. In Portland, the police stand down as thugs run amok.
Journalist Andy C. Ngo posted a video of protesters – Antifa and Black Lives Matter – obstructing an intersection and ordering motorists to obey their traffic instructions. The activists chased down 74-year-old Kent Houser, hammering his car and smashing a window, because Mr. Houser wouldn’t do exactly as the Democratic gang commanded him.
“I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” Wheeler said at a press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.”
Failing to separate obvious irony from transparent mendacity, Wheeler said “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”
I wouldn’t feel safe driving in downtown Portland even if Wheeler agreed to be my hood ornament. more here
