That's happened to Mayor Wheeler in Portland, but he's still going to prop up the thugs who came after him because it's what his political movement is now.
The top U.S. prosecutor in Oregon on Wednesday rejected a request from Portland's mayor to end the federal deputation of dozens of police officers as part of the response to ongoing protests, saying it was the only way to end "lawlessness."
In a joint statement, U.S. Attorney for Oregon Billy J. Williams and Russ Berger, the U.S. Marshal in the state, swatted down Mayor Ted Wheeler's request and called him out for a "lack of leadership" that they said has allowed acts of violence to overshadow more than four months of nearly nightly protests since the death of George Floyd.
You can at least, on some level, respect an actual radical as a worthwhile enemy. But the Democrat cutouts for the radicals are pathetic and despicable figures, weak and dishonest, lying to us and to themselves at the same time, and the first to fall once the extremists they prop up turn on them.
