A journalist named Andy Ngo was recently attacked and robbed by Antifa during a 'peaceful protest' in Portland. One might think this wouldn't happen during an event that's supposed to be peaceful, but it certainly happened and Mr. Ngo ended up in the emergency room that night.
It appears as though Mayor Wheeler was giving the police a stand down order and basically forcing the police to allow things like this to go on. With no power in their hands, the police who did nothing might have been tied down by the Mayor, so if it seems like the police aren't doing anything - that's true, but it's not by choice. The police need to follow their orders to put food on their table, that's something we must take into consideration and look above them on the totem pole.
That leads to Mayor Wheeler.
Ted Cruz just came out and slammed Mayor Wheeler for letting his city go to crap and the Antifa people being able to do whatever they want.
Here's what Ted Cruz said.
To federal law enforcement: investigate & bring legal action against a Mayor who has, for political reasons, ordered his police officers to let citizens be attacked by domestic terrorists. https://t.co/5xyCDARICl https://t.co/c0Tf3SsKEf— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) June 30, 2019
As for the victim, Mr. Ngo was hospitalized, robbed of his equipment, and showed us the true side of Antifa once again.
Right wing figure Michelle Malkin posted a Go Fund Me for him and it has raised over $100,000 thus far.
Hopefully Mr. Ngo recovers and returns to work, but this time he may want to bring an AR-15 for self defense.
