(PoliticalLookout.com)- Portland, Oregon, has endured more than three months of nightly violence in the city. Governor Kate Brown has refused to cooperate with President Donald Trump in sending in the National Guard, the Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler has told the president they don’t need any help, and Antifa keeps on destroying federal buildings and attacking police.
And despite this, Oregon’s governor this week said that the violence in the city is the result of “right-wing vigilantes” and “armed white supremacists.”
Her incredible claim, which is easily disproven by just looking at the wealth of footage showing violent left-wing extremists attacking federal buildings and assaulting police officers, came after a right-wing supporter of President Trump was murdered in cold blood by far-left activists. Footage shows left-wing extremists shouting “We have a Trump supporter” before moving in and shooting him.

The incident has spooked the Democrats, and it’s evident because Joe Biden is finally taking the violence seriously knowing that the people committing it are his supporters.
Governor Brown issued a statement calling for an end to the “cycle of violence” as if this wasn’t started by Antifa, and perpetuated by Antifa, for the last three months.
She did not acknowledge that the violence has been going on for months and has been committed y Democrat voters. Instead, she attacked right-wing groups and individuals who went to the city over the weekend to help protect residents from the violence.
“The right-wing group Patriot Prayer and self-proclaimed militia members drove into downtown Portland last night, armed and looking for a fight,” she said. “Every Oregonian has the right to freely express their views without fear of deadly violence.”
True. Which is why she should be doing something about the violence committed by Democrat voters in her city every night.
She then went on to say that she will “not allow Patriot Prayer and armed white supremacists to bring more bloodshed to our streets.”
It was a member of Patriot Prayer, by the way, who was murdered in cold blood over the weekend. Just saying.
