Portland police investigate veiled death threat against Mayor Ted Wheeler

Source: The Oregonian

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s latest call for police and fellow Portlanders to aggressively crack down on a small group of destructive demonstrators has angered left-leaning critics, rankled civil rights groups and now led to at least one veiled public death threat.

Police are investigating a video published to Twitter on Wednesday night that claims militant activists in the city will continue to destroy property and riot until Wheeler resigns and also includes the mayor’s home address along with a menacing warning.

“Blood is already on your hands, Ted,” says the video’s masked and voice-altered narrator, who appears outside a MAX station and claims to be a member of Portland’s anarchist and anti-fascist community. “The next time, it may just be your own.”

Jim Middaugh, a spokesman for Wheeler, said the mayor and his office learned of the video Wednesday night and that the Portland Police Bureau opened an investigation. Middaugh said the city’s police bureau had also notified the FBI, but he declined to comment further.

1. A question remains


Is this antifa or could it be Boogaloo bois? Recently, a Boogaloo boi was arrested for being part of a "demonstration" that burned down a police station.

Clearly some anarchist and right-wingers masquerade as antifa.

I say find this guy, give him a fair trial, and then ...

2. domestic terrorism

No -- we shouldn't be using the term lightly -- but the left needs to stop offering up rationalization (and cover) for the people that are engaging in just that.

We all cheer when friends and family members 'dimed out' out the people that assaulted officers and stormed the Capital in DC .... Guess what ..?
