Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., has said that the protests in Portland aren’t as bad as they appear.

“Portland, Oregon, is not out of control,” Blumenauer said Tuesday in a floor speech. “To be sure, there are some people who have strong feelings and there are some who have done things that are inappropriate and unlawful.”

Not just an admission; it’s a proud proclamation.

Speaking of rioters and looting, anyone have any information on what happened to ATMs, bank vaults and business safes after the “CHOP” area in Seattle was abandoned by the thugs. Suspect they were looted by the MSM doesnot want to publizize the truth about the “protesters”.

Maybe we should just let Portland burn.

That is what they want.

Of course the rioting is not out of control — it’s going exactly as planned.

The pot must really be incredible up there. Maybe it's a combo of meth and Oregon ‘s natural soil.

What he’s saying is that ‘controlled’ rioting, looting and violence are OK. It all depends on what the meaning of the word ‘controlled’ is.

Its amazing that anyone would vote for someone who condones anarchy.

Good question.

If we actually had real journalists, we would know, or, could easily find out.

Perhaps the 71 year old representative who has been in Congress for 24 years could go down during the night to the place where the riots are occurring in Portland and have a word with the “mostly peaceful” demonstrators. He admits that they are doing some things that are unlawful. Shouldn’t the police be stopping the unlawful activities?

It truly is because they have the unique ‘ability’ of ignoring facts, logic and the lessons of history. They live in a consequence free world.

The communists are forcing the “centrist” Democrats to cede to their will. In other words, no more hiding who they really are. Antifa, BLM and the rest of the Soros paid communist subversives are forcing elected RATS out in the open for all to see.

Hey Earl, go down there like the mayor did, but without a security detail, and prove to us that you are right. But first let me take out a life insurance policy on you.

With the police and any semblance of law enforcement out of the way the perfect conditions for organized crime will arise. Once they take over it will take decades, if not more, to root it out.

The people of Portland have sown the seeds of self destruction.

Agree. And the so-called “centrists” are prime converts because they hate Trump and can be easily manipulated.

Now, imagine if a congresscritter 3 years ago had said the tiki-torch protesters in Charlottesville (who didn’t destroy anything, btw) just “had strong feelings,” he would have been cancelled out of the US.
