Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Shields ANTIFA Terrorists From Blame in Statements Following Attacks

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has finally issued a response following Saturday’s rampage by ANTIFA that left several individuals brutally maimed, including journalist Andy Ngo of Quillette.

The far-left Democrat refused to address ANTIFA by name in his remarks:

The denialism from Mayor Wheeler is reminiscent of the classless display from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who referred to the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks committed by radical Islam as “some people [doing] something.”

Conservative critics in Congress and the Trump administration do not find Wheeler’s response acceptable. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is calling for federal action against the Mayor, who told law enforcement to stand down as ANTIFA terrorists committed a myriad of assaults against protesters.

US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is also calling for the feds to take action and investigate the matter further.

Mayor Wheeler has condoned ANTIFA terrorism for quite some time, but his advocacy may have finally backfired as the far-left menace has finally garnered national outrage.
