Democrat Ted Wheeler, Mayor and Police Commissioner of Portland Oregon had a press conference Sunday afternoon just 4 hours after telling President Donald J. Trump to “stay away” from Portland and to stop offering Federal law enforcement to clean up the City that has made world news for the violent riots over the most 90 days.
Wheeler, a far-left radical who refuses to take the violence seriously in his virtue signaling said “We want to protest here powerful and boldly. Lets used the power of our shared values to move together. We need to use the collective power of your officers to build together,” Wheeler said, signaling that he would not be calling on the National Gaurd.
Wheeler said that the Black Community would have to lead the changes and the people in the street to end the violence, that they would need to have the answers.
Wheeler went on a tirade about fake things that he attributed to Trump, like “making fun of a disabled man”, as a reason why Portland is so violent. Wheeler said that his people were hurt and angry because of things that Trump has said.
“I stand here with the police chief to denounce the violence. We have to all stop the violence. I am calling on people to stay away and let us deescalate the violence. Let’s pull together in the name of peace and humanity. What makes our nation is strong is that we can work together to build each other. We are going to re-imagine what racial justice and police reform can look like. We will engage in that work together,” Wheeler said.
Again laying the blame for the violence in Portland at Trump’s feet, with the most inflammatory and inaccurate misinformation and completely ignoring the people who are creating the violence, Wheeler said,”We have listed to all of your attacks, and now you are attacking Democrat mayors who have served us well. The voice is you who has created violence with your racism. “
Wheeler tended to talk about how he was implementing his community’s desire to end racism and have police reform, and that seems to be his focus. He is so dedicated to this idea that he gave no investigative information on the murder that happened Saturday night.
Refusing to acknowledge the real problem, making the problem worse, and then frame their opponent as the cause of the problem.
Mike Schmidt the newly elected radical District Attorney blamed the death on people going into his city to “terrorize” people, and talked about “systemic racism”. “It will take all of us together to stop the bleeding in our community,” Schmidt said.
Even after Wheeler has refused all law enforcement to address the violent riots in his community for close to 100 days, Wheeler says that it is Trump’s fault and said, “We all saw this coming and I have said that we must address the violence and we must work together, and Trump must acknowledge the systematic violence.”
Wheeler went on a number of illogical rants, that did not address any issues in Portland.
“I am not sure how to combat this,” Wheeler said. ” I will defend Trump supporters to be here, and I embrace those rights, and I am asking people to stay away,” Wheeler said.
They set up the violence, they perpetuate the violence and blame the Violence on their political enemy.
President Trump reacted during the press conference:
The Police Chief Chuck Lovell was very laid back, explaining his approach to riots and murder sort of like he was trying to figure out how to get his surfboard for the wave action, and he was confusing and talking in circles about how they would provide safety in the days ahead. He admitted that he could not figure out how to police the community.
