Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who for months saw Antifa and other leftist groups lay siege to the federal courthouse, is still sticking with the narrative that it’s white supremacist groups that are causing the need for coordination with other government agencies. He’s highly concerned about potential violence from neo-Nazis.
Given the heightened concerns about potential violence, particularly from white supremist organizations and the divisive rhetoric from Washington, D.C., the need for coordination and partnership takes on statewide significance. Oregon is likely to be a flashpoint.

Oregon is always a flashpoint, you knob. And it’s because you’ve let anarchists take the place of the police force.
Leftists burned this guy's apartment building and chased him out of town, but "white supremacists" are the issue https://t.co/SlrakBwviP

EVERY murder associated with your Antifa protestors was committed by … THE LEFT. Every single one, Ted.
Every fire was too.
Every single one, Ted.
Every broken window.
Every single one, Ted.

It’s not Trump supporters or the mythical “white supremicists” burning your city to the ground Teddy.

Who was responsible for the march of destruction on MLK Blvd on Saturday night? That group then went over to Vancouver, Wash. to do the same to businesses there. They chanted, “Black lives matter.”

OBVIOUSLY, it was white supremacists. Or it was a peaceful protest. Those are the only options. The media has told reliably informed us.

Portland has been an Antifa flash point for months. Just an idea Ted.

Wait what? This man is a mayor? How? I thought that took like a high-school level education at least. Does he think all the riots and violence in his city have been white supremacists?
He's like the wife that insists the husband that beats her is really a good guy and loves her.

You’re about to be replaced by a lunatic. All you had to do was be reasonable, but instead, you leaned in on the old Orange Man Bad shtick.

It is the left-wing nuts that are the cause of the riots.
