See What Backing Antifa Gets You

It doesn’t get you a lot of support, apparently. At least not in the riot-riddled city of Portland. The mayor there, Ted Wheeler is finding out the hard way, that backing “the protesters”, which has led to over 100 nights of riots and destruction in The Rose City, has also led to his downfall. At least that’s what the latest poll shows.

See, Ted Wheeler is up for re-election, and it appears he doesn’t have much support among the normally uber-leftist snowflake in his fair city. Only 26% approve of his job as Mayor. A whopping 63% have a negative view of hizonor.

Wheeler is probably best known for telling Donald Trump that he didn’t want his brand of “politics of division and demagoguery” in Portland. Trump responded by saying Wheeler was incompetent like Sleepy Joe Biden. The next day, there were hundreds of protesters outside of Wheeler’s condominium, calling for his resignation. Instead, he decided he would move so his neighbors could get a good night’s sleep.

And this is what backing rioters and looters, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa gets you apparently. So, it’s really strange that so many companies are spending millions of dollars on advertising designed to show they support this rather radical group. Now, I will be one of the first to say that I don’t believe that blacks should be treated any differently than any other race or ethnicity in this country. That said, I also believe that means you don’t put them up on a pedestal either. We are all equal. That means all the same. I get it they feel put upon, and they feel that the police are “out to get them”, and they are afraid to drive down the streets in some cities. That shouldn’t happen, but if they are afraid, you have to ask yourself, just why are they afraid. Is it because they are trying to avoid any contact with the police because of prior criminal acts? Or is it because the police are uber-sensitive to seeing people of color? Neither leads to a good outcome.

What all of this shows is that Ted Wheeler, like Lori Lightfoot in Chicago, and Bill de Blasio in New York City are seeing is in trouble politically. When you have a lot of your staff quitting, the police force opting for early retirement, and your streets littered with rubble from nightly protests and violence, you probably ought to consider a different line of work. It is very likely that Wheeler will lose the election in November to urban policy consultant, Sarah Iannarone after failing to get 50% plus one votes in the May primary. At this point, Wheeler has a better chance of defeating Donald Trump for the presidency.

I would expect that other mayors like Lightfoot, de Blasio, Jenny Durkin of Seattle, and Lovely Warren the Mayor of Rochester, New York are all going to be looking for work after their terms expire. de Blasio is term limited, so he’s toast after 2021. Durkin is already running for re-election in Seattle. Warren, who’s lost a lot of her staff due to the violence in Rochester, has an election in 2021 as well. And Lightfoot’s term in Chicago is up in 2023.

What will be interesting to see moving forward is whether or not the anti-mayoral attitudes in these cities, and around the country will actually play out on the national stage with Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Biden has finally come out against the rioters after spending months not saying a word about them. Trump’s law and order campaign seems to be taking hold and he’s narrowed a very wide 15 point gap to somewhere between 5 and 7 points in just a couple of weeks. Only time will tell.

Blowing Up The Cities

There’s an old adage that you get what you pay for. That certainly seems to be the case with the urban populations around some of the country currently. And it’s funny when you look at and analyze it. The people that are doing the “blowing up” of some of our nation’s cities are of the same political persuasion as those in charge of those cities.

When you look at what has been going on in places like Chicago, and Seattle, and San Francisco, and Portland, you realize one thing very quickly. These are all cities that have been run for decades by Democrats. These are liberal enclaves. So, why are liberal mayors having such a hard time bringing the looters and rioters under control? It’s simple. They are agreeing with them. Because to bring them under control is to disagree with them, and they can’t be seen going against groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

So what’s the solution?

Well, first off, I would disagree with Donald Trump. I don’t think sending in the troops would be the way to do it. These people would view that as signaling the start of the civil war they really want to kick off. They are trying to agitate the government into fighting them, then they can get the public on their side (as happened in the early days of the BLM protests), and take down the government. That’s totally the opposite thing to do.

No, the thing to do in places like Chicago, and Seattle, and Portland, and yes, even San Francisco is you let them do what they want to do. Let the marketplace decide.

At some point, Donald Trump should step aside and let these cities deal with it on their own. That means no federal troops, no federal money, nothing. If these cities that elected liberals and socialists to run them want to back idiot groups like Antifa, then they get what they deserve. The solution is in the ballot box come the next election. Do you really think that Seattle Mayor, Jenny Durkan, or Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot will be a shoo-in come their next election?

Now, taking that stance, yes, you do run the risk of actually getting someone more liberal. But at some point, even dumbed down liberals will have to understand that their way of life isn’t working and it’s turning their city into a cesspool. And, hopefully, if there are any conservatives left at that point, one of them will resonate with the voters.

But to go ahead and try and force an end to the violence that still permeates our nation’s streets is fruitless. Let the rioters have their way. Because as we saw with CHAZ/CHOP, and as we saw with Occupy Wall Street, these things are basically short-lived. One thing we know about these liberal idiots, they can’t stay out of their parents’ basements long enough to enact real change. To do that would require some real, honest-to-goodness convictions. That’s one thing these people don’t have.

Rather than agitate, ignore. The results may be worse in the short-term, but in the long-term, they will come around. Either that or there won’t be a city for them to ruin!

The Left Moves To Do Away With FDR

Well, they haven’t…yet. But they ARE moving in that direction. In Portland, Oregon, leftist wacko’s have beheaded a statue of the Father Of Our Country, draped it in an American flag, and lit the flag on fire. Calling George Washington “a rich white supremacist, bigot, and slave owner”.

If that’s true, they have a lot of explaining to do!

Let’s take a look at arguably two of the most influential progressives in our country’s history. Let’s look at Woodrow Wilson, the father of modern progressivism, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the father of modern American socialism.

Wilson, a rich, white supremacist, was a notorious bigot and racist, and was constantly looking to increase and expand segregation. Yet, I don’t see these leftist snowflakes trying to destroy any statue of Wilson’s?

Let’s look at another rich, white supremacist racist bigot in Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The only four-term president in our nation’s history, and the father of modern socialism in America was also notorious in his bigotry. After all, wasn’t it Roosevelt that incarcerated some 112,000 Japanese-Americans, citizens of THIS country back in World War II? Yet, I seem to recall some 23 years ago or so, we actually put a statue of Roosevelt, in his wheelchair on the Mall in Washington, DC. How does such a bigoted socialist, a wealthy white supremacist, get a statue on the Mall in DC, by jailing in concentration camps, over 100,000 American citizens?

Yet, these Antifa-styled groups want to glorify Vladimir Lenin, the father of Communism, and the man responsible for upwards of 15 million deaths in Russia and the Soviet Union in the early 1900s. Does that mean that killing those that disagree with you is an ok thing? If so, does that mean that here in this country, we can go out and kill liberal snowflakes that take over parts of a city? I would hope not!

The idiots on the left, and I’m including their leadership in positions of power, at the city, state, and yes, the national level have jumped on the bandwagon of these rioters and looters. Oh, these people think it’s just a protest. They think it’s just “a summer of love” as Seattle Mayor, Jenny Durkin said. Of course, now that there’s been a shooting in CHOP, she’s turned against that summer of love thing, and is insistent that the police re-enter that area and take back their precinct that she ordered them to abandon just two weeks ago. What happened to the summer of love?

What happened to the CHOP and CHAZ areas that were supposed to be anarchist zones? Why was it that when those people needed something, they called outside their zone to truck in the necessities. And why was it that when they had a shooting, the first thing they did was call 911, the very police that they wanted to ban from the area?

No, people like Nancy Pelosi, Jenny Durkin, Jay Inslee, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden have no place in politics. They are all traitors to this country for back insurrections such as what we’ve been seeing go on in this country’s cities over the past two weeks. It’s time America wakes up and removes them from office!
