A LITTLE LATE: Portland Mayor Vows ‘No Autonomous Zones’ in City After Months of Riots

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.09.20

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler confused millions of followers on social media Wednesday when he vowed there will be no “autonomous zones” in his city; seemingly forgetting months of non-stop riots and anti-police protests.

“I am authorizing the Portland Police to use all lawful means to end the illegal occupation on North Mississippi Avenue and to hold those violating our community’s laws accountable. There will be no autonomous zone in Portland,” posted Wheeler on Twitter.

 

“We all agree many of our nation’s systems and structures are fundamentally racist and require significant reform. There’s a housing crisis, a health care crisis, an education crisis, an employment crisis, a mental health crisis, and an addiction crisis,” he wrote.

“It’s time for the encampment and occupation to end. There are many ways to protest and work toward needed reform. Illegally occupying private property, openly carrying weapons, threatening and intimidating people are not among them,” Wheeler concludes.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler refused help from the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security this week; saying his city can handle six-weeks of non-stop, anti-police protests that have brought his town to a virtual standstill.

“Today the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security asked to speak with me about demonstration activity in Portland. He expressed his concern about ongoing violence and asked how his agency can help,” said the Mayor.

“I told the Acting Secretary that my biggest immediate concern is the violence federal officers brought to our streets in recent days, and the life-threatening tactics his agents use. We do not need or want their help,” he added.

ANTIFA UNLEASHED: Portland Mayor Defends Police Inaction During Oregon Protest

The liberal Mayor of Portland, Oregon Ted Wheeler praised his police department’s “decisions” during the Antifa-led protests over the weekend; saying they had to “weigh complex legal” issues before cracking-down on the left-wing activists.

Wheeler posted his response on social media following harsh criticism after law enforcement failed to restore order when “rival political factions” attacked each other in downtown Portland.

“I was appalled by what I saw in that clip and I support the decisions of the [Portland Police]. I trust them,” Mayor Ted Wheeler tweeted Friday. “I believe them as the law enforcement professionals who have to weigh complex legal and safety issues, not only for the people on the streets but also for themselves.”

The Mayor’s comments come days after leading Democrats -including Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, and Hillary Clinton- urged their supporters to ratchet up their anti-GOP efforts heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
