Portland protests: Democrats tacitly endorse riots 

Madison WI’s doppelganger

Portland mayor Ted Wheeler presides over a city that has become a watchword over the years for left-wing thuggery unchecked by municipal authorities. Now he has roused himself to state of high dudgeon — over federal officers trying to counter ongoing assaults on a federal building.

He calls the feds “a direct threat to our democracy” and argues that they are engaging in unconstitutional arrests and inflaming protests that he had hoped “would end within a matter of days.”

Oregon senator Ron Wyden had this coolheaded take on the president and his acting secretary of Homeland Security:

“Now Trump and Chad Wolf are weaponizing the DHS as their own occupying army to provoke violence on the streets of my hometown because they think it plays well with right-wing media.”

If Portland was on the verge of calm prior to the arrival of the feds in force, it would have been the first time since the killing of George Floyd.Protests have taken place every day since May 28. A few headlines of a timeline from the website of a local TV station KOIN.com:

  • May 29: “Massive vigil in North Portland leads to declared riot downtown.”
  • May 30: “Curfew imposed — and ignored.”
  • June 30: “Police union building protest: Another riot was declared by police.”

    It beggars belief. And no wonder that destruction continues unabated when local/state leaders encourage it by default. But Portland is not alone in its deflection of reality, just the most noticeable -thus far… It is coming to a city near you soon. Perhaps it’s already here

    In Columbus, WI, the 20 year old who mangled the victim’s hand, broke every window in his vehicle and stole his stuff, had 17 priors, (young yet productive) and mostly ALL violent crimes. Battery, substantial battery, ad nauseum.

    The net result? DISMISSALS of ALL charges in almost every case…. Yoiks… So as the Boy Scouts used to say, B4 they donned rainbow neckerchiefs, BE PREPARED!

    The Gotch saw a new Virtue Signalling sign in Midvale Heights, Silence is Complicity, shoehorned into a real REAL WOKE (three [3] other signs) neighbor’s lawn.

    I wonder if they mean the silence, as in NO CONDEMNATION, regarding the riots/looting/general miscreant-lawless-mayhem from the CommonSenseLess Council, the County Board, the Mayor’s office, Urban Triage, FreeDUMB Inc, et al?

    Or is some silence more equal than others…?

    Wouldn’t it be better if DHS simply declared martial law and occupied the city?

    Rose City Antifa owns that town, and their goal is to turn it into Mogadishu. Madison has some eyes eagerly watching this and their little “hamster-wheel” brains are spinning.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I have not heard one Democratic, except Carpenter, disavow this. Some are even embracing it. This IS the new face of the Democratic party.

        The only people dreading anything is the gop. They are trying to figure out how many more seats they are going to lose. And now they are eating their own. A bunch of old white guys going after Lizzy Cheney. Ann Coulter calling trump an idiot and telling people to vote for the Dem. against the turtle. Trump went from masks are for pussies to patriotic in a day. Every southern state run by a gop goober is out of control with the virus. Faux news is up to their ass in lawsuits AGAIN. Repubs’ in Ohio jailed because of child porn. And it gets worse…the gop convention in Fld, in August, in the midst of covid. What stable genius thought that one up?

    Where are Satya, Evers, Pocan, Tammy? Aren’t they leading Madison? They’ve all professed great love for lovely Madison prior to every election. Lord knows they aren’t working. Can’t WSJ/CapTimes get a statement from any of them?

    I am humored at the sycophants on this blog who worship at the altar of Blaska and label any opinion expressed that doesn’t agree with theirs being from a “lefty” and not adding anything to the discussion. Do comments like “Suck it up Sunshine” by madisonexpat. and those of the Gotch and Pantifarts (too numerous to list) seriously add anything to the discussion? Come on guys, you can do better than that!
