Talk about being a delusional dimwitted Democrat, after the Black Lives Matter, Antifa rioters firebombed his building forcing him out of his condo, Portland’s Pandering Mayor Ted Wheeler has banned police from using tear gas to control the out-of-control unhinged leftist mob.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheller has done nothing to end the BLM, Antifa rioting that has plagued the city for more than 100-days-straight. But doing all he can to stop Police officers after he signed an order forbidding them from using the commonly-used crowd-control weapon.
“Effective immediately, I am directing the Portland Police Bureau to end the use of CS gas for crowd control until further notice,”
We need something different. We need it now.”
Wheeler went on to hysterically whine:
I expect the police to arrest people who engage in criminal acts.
I expect the district attorney to prosecute those who commit criminal acts. And I expect the rest of the criminal justice system to hold those individuals accountable.”
Of course, Wheeler knows that if these rioters are arrested, they are immediately released, with little more than a desk appearance ticket.
And as usual, just like every other screeching Democrat, after crying “We need something different. We need it now.” Wheeler gave no indication of what that ‘something different‘ might be to help Police cope with violent BLM, Antifa protests.
With BLM, Antifa rioters setting fires to buildings, assaulting people in the streets, and throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at police, officers have been quick to deploy tear gas to disperse the demonstrations.
But after Wheeler’s imbecilic order, the Police have little, if anything, in their arsenal to control the unhinged leftist mob from looting and rioting their way through the Rose City.

But Weren’t The Portland Riots All Trump’s Fault?
Making Wheeler’s idiocy even more moronic is the fact that for weeks the Democrats placed the blame for the rioting on President Donald Trump for his inciting violence after sending federal law enforcement officers to protect Portland’s federal courthouse.

Yet, despite the phased pullout from the city under President Trump’s announced agreement with Oregon Governor Kate Brown in late July, after six weeks of nightly rioting, there appears to be no end to the BLM, Antifa violence insight.
Of course, don’t expect the mainstream media to cover the three-month-long Portland rioting honestly. As evidenced by the Washington Post’s laughable July 31st article headline that read:
Of course, as we reported on Sept 6th Watch: Portland BLM Rioter Throwing Molotov Cocktail Catches On Fire WaPo’s story was just another fake news media fantasy.
