Neoliberal Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is trailing a left-wing election challenger who identifies herself as a member of the ANTIFA movement, according to a new poll from the Portland Business Alliance.
Wheeler is supported by 30% of likely Portland voters, while ANTIFA-affiliated progressive challenger Sarah Iannarone has 41% support. Iannarone had challenged Wheeler, who has since become universally unpopular in the city for his efforts to appease left-wing militants while largely blaming the failures of his administration on President Trump.
Another recent poll indicates that Ted Wheeler has an unfavorability rating of 63% with only 26% of Portlanders approving of his job performance. It is difficult to win reelection to any office with those sorts of underwater approval ratings.
Iannarone has openly identified as a member of ANTIFA. She had previously challenged Wheeler for the mayoralty in Portland’s non-partisan elections in 2016, but the atmosphere of violent leftism in the city appears to have boosted the prospects of the leftist candidate.
I am Antifa because the Red Hats are coming after brown & black people, after Jews, after queer & trans people, and more.

If Iannarone wins the November election, the Portland Police would stand to be either sharply limited from performing law enforcement duties at ANTIFA riots, or abolished entirely. It’s likely that federal police and US Marshals would have to return to the city in force to prevent the destruction of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse.
Perhaps Mayor Iannarone would push for the wholesale secession of the city of Portland from Oregon and the United States if President Trump secures reelection in November. We could be looking at the first real independent ANTIFA-occupied zone in the United States, if you’re not counting the month-long existence of Seattle’s CHAZ.
Cops Stand Down as ANTIFA Terrorists Attack Trump Supporters at Rally in Ithaca, NY
This is what rule by mob looks like.
Police stood down and allowed ANTIFA terrorists to attack a group of peaceful Trump supporters in Ithaca, N.Y. on Friday afternoon.
“We gathered to have our Trump 2020 Rally, and at 4 PM were immediately met by a large group of counter protestors. After about a half hour went by and the counter protestors saw that they had a large numerical advantage, they began crossing the street,” organizer Rocco Lucente wrote in a Facebook post.
“At that point they began pushing, shoving, kicking, punching, stealing peoples signs and flags, taking peoples hats, and attempting to physically intimidate the crowd into surrender. It got to the point where the mob was attacking anyone who still had Trump gear on. We called Ithaca Police Department to let them know what was happening, but they didn’t show up for a half hour and merely directed traffic away from the riot once they did show up. Mayor Svante Myrick enabled this thuggish display of violence by mobs of his voters by telling IPD to stand down,” he added.
Lucente noted that a 60-year-old woman was accosted by the mob and suffered a dislocated shoulder due to the ANTIFA terror. He is urging Trump supporters to show up with overwhelming numbers for a follow-up protest next weekend to show the mob that patriots will not be deterred by their thuggery.
“I will be posting more on this in the future, but this post has ONE message: The only way to respond to this is to show up a week from today in MASSIVE numbers,” he wrote.
“If the mob learns that they can intimidate us into silence, it’s over. At that point, we no longer have freedom of expression in the place where we live. The ONLY way to show them that this doesn’t work is to show them that this will cause us to show up in LARGER NUMBERS THAN EVER!” Lucente added.
Tompkins County Republicans also noted that the ANTIFA terrorism that is being celebrated by nascent left-wing organizations such as the Democrat Socialists of America (DSA).
The Cornell Daily Sun covered the event and correctly noted that the ANTIFA terrorists instigated the violent situation.
“We had no idea we’d be joined by people calling us members of the KKK,” organizer Nancy Sullivan said. “We’re not here to create trouble.”
Cornell history professor Russell Rickford endorsed the terrorist display publicly, showing how institutional power works to punish conservatives and endorses violence against them.
“I think it’s really important in a town like Ithaca, with its liberal veneer, to actually demonstrate strong opposition to racist and reactionary politics,” said Rickford, who is a member of the Ithaca DSA. “Quite often, liberalism is willing to accommodate the far right, to justify it and, by doing so, legitimize it.”
Even though Trump supporters have been hunted by ANTIFA terrorists nationwide, the China-owned feds continue to look the other way, as Big League Politics has noted:
After repeatedly denying the ANTIFA terror threat and diverting federal resources to the false canard of white supremacy, a grassroots movement is urging for President Donald Trump to fire FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Newly saved Christian and long-time Trump advocate Roger Stone is publicizing a petition to the President to fire Wray that is rapidly gaining signatures.
“So attorney general Bill Barr says he has absolute solid proof via the FBI of Antifa’s organized financing and structure yet FBI director Christopher Wray insists that ANTIFA, which is a dangerous terrorist group, is just an ideology and not dangerous at all,” Stone said in a video address against Wray posted on his Telegram account.
“Chris Wray is the epitome of a swamp rat. He has worked against President Donald Trump to cover the excesses of the FBI since the moment he was appointed. It is time for the President to fire Chris Wray,” he added.
The petition can be accessed at MagaPetition.org/firewray. The language introducing the petition makes an even stronger case for Trump to depose Wray.
“Director Wray has failed to pursue in any meaningful way the criminal abuses of power perpetrated by his predecessor and the former Deputy Director who participated in nothing less than a seditious conspiracy aimed at a sitting president, after spying on this president while a candidate for that office, obtaining extraordinary secret warrants under knowingly-false pretenses and by systematic deception of a federal court, in service to tawdry personal and partisan vendettas against this president,” the petition description reads.
“Director Wray has failed to reform the culture of the FBI that has for too long been tainted by political correctness and the selective targeting of enforcement against only those who have opposed certain political actors, sects or ideologies, while ignoring serious and widespread crimes committed or fomented by these same political actors or their fellow travelers,” the petition continues.
Despite what taxpayer-funded Marxists say on college campuses, all of the institutional and systemic oppression in this country is against white conservatives. Diversity and multiculturalism mean the death of the rule of law with low IQ savagery reigning supreme.
