Portland Revisited – Mayor Butthurt & Hangry

| August 7, 2020

If I hide like this, no one can see me

I checked the calendar, just to be sure: Nope, it isn’t Friday the 13th this month.

Oh, now the Mayor of Portland, OR, is upset because his beeyootiful city is being torn apart by the raggedy-man protesters and it’s all Trump’s fault because they work for him and he’s just all butthurt about it….

From the article:  PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The mayor of Portland, Oregon, a city wracked by nearly 70 consecutive nights of unrest, on Thursday angrily denounced those who attempted to set a police precinct on fire with officers stationed inside as props in President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign and said those individuals were not protesters, but criminals.

“You are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,” Mayor Ted Wheeler said in hastily called news conference alongside Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell. (Yes, those are his words.)

“Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are,” he said. “You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.” – article.

Okay, sure, blame someone who isn’t standing next to you for your own mistakes. He could have stopped this before it started, but isn’t THIS mayor the same mayor who went out into the streets and joined the protesters?

Why, yes: yes, he is. Here’s the link to that history. He also held a “listening session”.

From the print article:  PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler joined large crowds of protesters near the Justice Center in Portland Wednesday night.

This is the first time that Wheeler has been among protesters since federal officers arrived in Portland in the beginning of July.

Wheeler held a listening session and was passing around a microphone and responding to protesters’ comments.

One asked Wheeler if he would commit to work towards abolishing the Portland Police Bureau.

Wheeler answered, “No, I do not support that,” and then received boos from the crowd.

He talked about supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and talked about how federal officers need to get out of Portland.

“If they launched the tear gas against you, they’re launching the tear gas against me. We are a community. Here’s what I think about the federal government being in our city. They were not asked to be here. They are not wanted here. They’re not property trained to be here. And we are asking them… we’re demanding that they leave. We demand that the federal government stop occupying our city,” Wheeler said. – article

He was so with them, wasn’t he?  He didn’t seem quite so butthurt back then, did he?

Isn’t amazing how short-term memory loss seems to affect some people when they’re trying to suck up to someone, and then they switch gears later on when things are not as hunky-dory as they thought they’d be. I’d just like to know if he’s from the same planet we’re on, or if he’s really a space alien who thought he could hide amongst us while The Overlords of The Galaxy work to destroy us. My opinion is unprintable, because 4-year-olds might see it and say some of the bad words they’re not supposed to know just yet.

On another note, I’m still concerned about that retired sailor whose house is a block from Portland’s town hall. I hope he’s okay, but haven’t found anything on him so far.

    Oh FFS, I thought I had read your comment on the other thread wrong when you said “prop for Trump’s re-election campaign.” “…more to come.” We gotta wonder who put those words in his mouth. Get the Veteran and any other Patriots the hell out of there, an nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

    • Ex-Ph2 says:

      You got that right, 5th/77th. Either do that, or kick that idiot from Portland to whatever islands there are west of the Pacific shore.

      Oh, wait – no islands? Tough! Just put him in a boat and shove him westward. He is such a jerk. He will never, ever take any responsibility for what happened.

      I’m on the other side of the Columbia… I’ll send picks for the BDA when it happens!

      • David says:

        My brother used to live almost directly opposite the airport… you were neighbors. He has since moved further out of town; I believe he had enjoyed being close to Portland enough.

  2. UpNorth says:

    Mayor Ted, this whole mess is on you, you thought a little riot would be cool, that your fellow leftists wouldn’t turn on you.
    The costs of this entire debacle are on you and the city commission

  3. 2banana says:

    A useful idiot starting to realize he is a useful idiot…

  4. Graybeard says:

    You made your bed, now lie in it.

    My sympathy meter is pegged at zero.

  5. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Funny how it’s all fun and games until the mob is no longer your friend.

    These cities are largely run by Democrats, and yet Democrats are suggesting the problem is Republicans.

    In Minneapolis where Mr. Floyd died there are exactly ZERO Republicans on the city council it’s a complete Democrat city council.

    I’m not clear how voting for Democrats in Minneapolis changes anything of significance in that city.

    Or Louisville where the no knock warrant left a sleeping young woman dead in her bed…7 Republicans on a 26 member city council….surely Democrats aren’t suggesting the 7 run the city?

    As I’ve said many times, I no Trump fan. But I am somewhat of a realist and I can find no reason to consider how more Democrat “leadership” benefits this nation or these cities in any measurable fashion at this time.

    I and the many, many other Independents like me aren’t gimme votes for Democrats. I believe like 2016 that we Independents are taking our time and lying to pollsters like 2016 and come election day there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth once again.

    Well gee whiz, Mayor Shit-for-brains done shit in his nest and now he has to lie in it! Lefties have proven time and again that they’ll turn on each other at the drop of a hat, and I’m laughing my ass off at this! In the meantime, what aid has been offered to those whose livelihoods have been destroyed by those rioting maggots?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Lefties have proven time and again that they’ll turn on each other at the drop of a hat – API

      That is exactly why I posted both of those articles, API. They’re even more dishonest lying sacks of porcupine crap than they were in the 1960s.

      Here’s hoping they disgust so many people this time around that they get smacked good and hard for it.

    Teddi Soi Boi is starting to see Pantyfa go into neighborhoods… and people are starting to take a stand against the little thugsters. I wouldn’t be shocked if someone who has been threatened opens fire on Pantyfa soon…

    • Ret_25X says:

      when that happens…and it will…MSLSD and CCPN will have non stop breathless reporting about how the “over reaction to the peaceful protests” is soooo problematic and racist, and colonial, and rotten, and mean, and awful, and horrible, and Trump’s fault.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      “I wouldn’t be shocked if someone who has been threatened opens fire on Pantyfa soon…”

      It’s already happened and the little shits have ended up at the receiving end of firearms elsewhere they’ve tried to infest Red State America. Yeah, they handed out firearms to their minions in CHOP/CHAZ/whatever, but did their useful idiots have any knowledge whatsoever in using them? I’m assuming that it’s only a matter of time until they try to intimidate people with firearms who already have them and are not afraid to defend themselves, that’s when the little maggots are going to end up on the Coroner’s slab!

      • NHSparky says:

        I watch that video with the militia numbnuts trying to explain why one of his fellow mouth breathers had a ND, and the shit keeps getting funnier every time I see it!

  8. NHSparky says:

    Fuck you, Wheeler. You expected skittle-shitting unicorns because you asked nicely?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      He obviously thought they’d be his perpetual friends because he “stood” with them, I can’t wait to see how he ends up next election!

      • NHSparky says:

        Meh, even if he gets primaried out, they’re so far left it’s just replacing one moonbat leftist with another.

        Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

  9. Ret_25X says:

    Think about this…if Hillary were president and this happened BLM and Antifarce would already be dead.

    Of course, since they represent the DNC’s SA that could never happen….but it is an interesting thought experiment

    • Combat Historian says:

      If the BLM/antifa rioting looting continues out of control and the demonrats’ internal polling plunges into sewer shit territory, is it not inconceivable that the demonrats would launch their own blue-on-blue “Night of the Long Knives” and kill off a bunch of the worst antifa BLM thug leaders and then try to blame it on Trump? Hitter used the SS to destroy the SA and eliminate Ernst Roehm. Wouldn’t the demonrats use the same strategy to destroy BLM/antifa if their own Frankenstein creation goes uber rogue and threaten the demonrats’ electoral prospects in November?
