From the very start of the Summer riots, far-left Democrat leaders have refused to act. Even as major cities are reduced to rubble, liberal mayors and governors ignore the violence, calling rioting and looting “peaceful protests.” President Trump has frequently offered federal assistance to restore law and order. Frequently, Democrats denied him. Most recently, the mayor of Portland sent an open letter to the president, insultingly rejecting federal law enforcement. Then, this happened.
There are several possible reasons Democrats have been so stupid in not condemning and ending the riots. It’s partly because they are afraid of being called racist by radical hate groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa. It’s partly because they don’t want to prove Trump right, who quickly condemned the violence.
And it’s also possible that Democrats wanted the riots, both to blame them on Trump and to scare minorities into voting for Joe Biden. Democrats did publicly bail out rioters. Black Lives Matter and Antifa are linked to the Democratic Party and liberal donors.
But it’s no secret that for whatever reason Democrats called violent riots peaceful, it’s clear things have not gone as they planned. Those “useful” idiots who are staging these riots are out of control. Whatever Democrats hoped would happen—saying winning over American voters—is not happening. In fact, Democrat voters in many liberal cities are so outraged over the destruction, they are now openly endorsing Trump.
Some Democrats are even getting so scared, they are calling on their party to finally condemn the riots. Mayor Wheeler of Portland didn’t get the memo. Because although Portland has suffered the most since the riots began, he openly insulted the president’s help in a letter.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler refused President Trump’s offer to send federal law enforcement to the city to control downtown protests that have continued for more than 90 days.

The city of Portland is burning. Regular citizens are under siege by radical Marxists. Neighborhoods on the verged of collapse. Yet Wheeler is throwing around words like “demagoguery.”
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the dumbest politician on the planet (next to Joe Biden).
Wheeler must have last week’s Democratic playbook, the one that told liberals to do nothing about the riots and blame Trump when he sends in federal law enforcement. The big mistake? Trump is only sending in the Feds, when the locals ask for you. You can’t call Trump a “demagogue” when he’s offering you aid.
Democrats really shot themselves in the foot. And yet, few of them have even realized it.
I wonder if Wheeler finally figured it out after his lapdogs turned on him?
On Friday night, a group of protesters descended upon Wheeler’s condo building and began chanting, playing music, and dancing. The progressive organization Rising Tide North America posted video of protesters entering the building and refusing to leave by linking their arms with tubes. The protesters demanded Wheeler resign, abolish the police by 2022 without any kind of replacement, and give the money saved to black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities as well as other city services.

Idiot Wheeler has tried again and again to pander to a small group of hate activists. And time and again, they have shown him how much they hate him.
Why isn’t he trying to appease the 99.9% of Portland residents that want this over? Democrats’ polling can’t be this terrible, right? Why didn’t Wheeler just take the federal support and just shut up?
Today, Democrats’ hatred of Trump is so great, they are deliberately hurting their own people. I’m sure Wheeler won’t even change his tune after this.
The only solution, Portland? Stop electing morons like this!
I don’t think there is much more left to say, is there?
