Portland Mayor Attacks Federal Law Enforcement, DHS as ANTIFA Criminals Run Wild

Handing the streets to the criminals of ANTIFA.

Published

on

Neoliberal Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler rebuked acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf and the contingent of U.S. Marshals in the city on Tuesday, shaming the federal authorities for their action to crack down on ANTIFA’s spree of street riots and violent crime.

Wheeler recounted a conversation with Wolf, in which the DHS Secretary asked him how the federal authorities could help to alleviate the daily riots and street violence unleashed by ANTIFA-linked criminals upon the city. Wheeler then demanded that the Trump administration official remove the federal law enforcement presence from the city, leaving federal institutions such as the Hatfield Federal Courthouse at the mercy of the rioters.

The Mayor has opted to condemn what he claims is a “system of white supremacy” necessitating the rioters’ criminal gatherings, accusing federal law enforcement of unfairly targeting the demonstrably violent street criminals.

ANTIFA rioters have taken to the city streets in violent ‘demonstrations’ for more than 40 nights since the death of George Floyd, attacking the city’s federal courthouse on a near nightly basis with weapons such as improvised firework mortars. The federal authorities have made arrests of ANTIFA terrorists enacting political violence, but the Portland police have been largely called off, and Multnomah County prosecutors have consistently dropped criminal charges against left-wing street rioters.

Small business owners and the downtown Portland community stand to pay the price as the Mayor cedes authority to left-wing criminals, with one estimate of the costs of economic damages from the nightly riots at $23 million dollars.

The free pass for the thugs and violent criminals of ANTIFA is all but explicit, with Portland’s systematic leftism enabling the criminal activities of the anarchist organization. The rioters will be emboldened to further attack U.S. Marshals and Portland’s federal facilities, knowing that the city’s mayor is on their side.

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”

There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.

Published

on

The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”

“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.

Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.

The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.

Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”

Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.

Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
