Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Flees Official Residence Over Far-Left Violence

(ThePatriotSource.com)- Far-left extremists causing chaos outside of the home of Democratic Portland Mayor’s official residence have caused him to flee, fearing his safety. Mayor Wheeler told residents in his condo building that he is planning on moving out of the facility after several instances of far-left extremists attacking the building.

Wheeler said he was concerned for the safety of other residents in the building also, and appears to be leaving in the hope that Antifa and Black Lives Matter will stop the destruction.

According to The Oregonian, Wheeler told residents that moving out would be “best for me and for everyone else’s safety and peace.” He now plans on finding a new place to live, meaning Black Lives Matter and Antifa’s actions have caused an elected politician to flee for his safety.

Isn’t this…fascism?

“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position,” Mayor Wheeler said in an email to other residents. “It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.”

Mayor Wheeler has refused to cooperate with President Donald Trump and his administration, rejecting several offers of federal assistance and even telling President Donald Trump that the National Guard and federal agents would not help the city. As a result, Portland has experienced more than 95 consecutive nights of violence. The riots have resulted in several police officers being permanently blinded by lasers, federal courthouses firebombed, and violence in the streets.

The Oregonian reported that Wheeler purchased the two-bedroom condo back in 2017 for $840,000.

The Portland Police Department issued a statement after violent far-left extremists attacked the building, stating that a mass gathering “devolved into a riot” when people started breaking windows, burglarizing a business, and even “lit a fire in an occupied apartment building.”

“A group began by gathering in the North Park Blocks near Northwest Park Avenue and Northwest Couch Street. About 10:00p.m., a march began in the street to the area of Northwest 10th Avenue and Northwest Glisan Street. Some in the crowd began lighting off what appeared to be illegal commercial-grade fireworks,” the statement explained.

Officers said they told rioters to disperse over loudspeaker but they did not comply. Arson investigators are reportedly looking for the person who started the fire.

It just goes to show that no matter how much Mayor Wheeler capitulates to the violent Democrat voters on the streets, they don’t care. They’ll still attack his building.
