Mayor Ted Wheeler Took A Stand Against The Mob
Barry Nussbaum: Welcome to ATP's, Really Dumb Things, They Said. I'm Barry Nussbaum.
Now more from Portland. You know Portland, with Mayor Ted Wheeler, the embattled progressive mayor. He finally took a stand against the mob that was hell-bent on destroying his city. Here's how the mob responded:
"Blood is already on your hands, Ted!"
States the video's narrator, wearing a full-face mask and with an anonymous style altered voice. He continues, "The next time, it may just be your own blood." The narrator says in the two-minute video with a menacing chuckle as his address is posted. "Ted, we are asking for the last time that you resign. If you ignore this message outright, the destruction to your city and your precious way of life is going to escalate."
The speaker is identified as a member of Portland's anarchist, anti-fascist community and maintains that the disorder, the widespread property destruction will proceed until Wheeler resigns. Listen to the rest of the quote.
"Windows smashed, and riots are a necessary escalation when those in power have proven they're unwilling to listen." And that's how the video's narrator wraps it up. It occurred days after Wheeler finally announced that it was time to:
"Make a stand against the self-described anarchist mob that has been tearing apart the city of Roses since George Floyd's death."
So, I have a question. At what point will the people that should care, you know, like the mayor, the city council, people in positions of authority, and of course, the prosecutor's office unite and take a stand against those who hate civilization because until they do, dumbness and these types of people will continue the destruction.
The good citizens and businesses will continue to flee from Portland.
