Trump Takes Action in Portland

Trump Takes Action in Portland

(RightWing.org) – After watching the debacle that resulted as local officials “dealt” with the CHAZ/CHOP takeover in Seattle, President Donald Trump decided he didn’t want to see a replay of those events in Portland, Oregon. Acting Secretary Chad Wolf, of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has sent federal officers from several different agencies into the city to ensure history doesn’t repeat itself.

Making Pretzels out of Facts

The Progressive Liberal politicians and their media shills are trying to claim the president is illegally stomping on people’s First Amendment rights by having his “secret police” sneak in and “kidnap” people off the streets. They’ll even quote that passage of the Bill of Rights, focusing on “… the right of the people peaceably to assemble [emphasis added], and to petition the government…”

Using their ability to blithely ignore things that don’t fit their narrative, which apparently includes their own words of very recent history, they call these peaceful protests. It was literally just days before the arrest of some of these paragons of virtue simply exercising their rights that Portland Mayor, Ted Wheeler, posted a series of tweets in which he twice called for an end to the “nightly violence.”

As if we needed more evidence of the Left’s hatred for all things traditionally considered American, they’ve just provided the world with one more glaring example. Here they proved their obsession with ousting President Trump in the fast-approaching November election is more important to them than the protection and well-being of the citizens of this country.

Usurping the Black Narrative

Many in the mainstream media are painting the DHS deployment of federal agents as an outright attack against Black Lives Matter (BLM). They’re doing this to evoke anger directed at Conservatives, in general, and President Trump, specifically. It’s the tactic they’ve used throughout this period of racial hostility whether it’s true or not. In this case, it’s not.

A radio host out of Seattle has said, “there is this movement to try to pretend that this is a [BLM] protest… and that’s obviously not what’s going on.” He also intimated one of the reasons may be because the “… local leaders don’t want to get involved in Antifa violence.”

One local leader in the Black community wrote to Mayor Wheeler telling him the ones causing problems are 99% white, and are not representative of the BLM movement. The story also noted that Police Chief Chuck Lovell estimated the cost of officer overtime — which does not include any damage done by the rioters – at more than $6.2 million.

It’s become fairly obvious that the Democrats and other Liberals are working hard to foist their Socialist/Communist worldview upon all of America by vilifying anything or anyone who opposes it. At times, it seems they’ve learned the stratagem of Nazi Germany, which is summed up in one sentence attributed to Adolf Hitler for dealing with the masses: “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
