Antifa made the Portland Mayor flee his home and they sucker punched him in the face. But in response he did nothing.
Even in the final days of the Trump administration, Ted Wheeler was an indirect Antifa advocate. He was publicly offended at comparisons being drawn between the Far Left group and the January 6th Capitol Riots. Last year after the death of George Floyd, Antifa spent the summer sieging the Portland courthouse.
Pushover Wheeler has let Antifa riot in the city regularly, but now he’s taking it no more.
The Punished Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler put out a video announcement that’s essentially a call to action for the general public. “Let’s make them hurt a little bit,” Wheeler says.
Mayor Wheeler has extended the state of emergency in Portland through noon Monday. He asks members of the public to get license plates of people dressed all in black and report them to the police. "Our job is to unmask them, arrest them and prosecute them." pic.twitter.com/QsW73Me9fL
