Uh...what?...lol! Rise up against the violence? He has a ****ing police department.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler discusses protests, violence | kgw.com

“We have allowed our proud tradition of progressive protests to be stolen by a few dozen individuals engaged in violence and criminal destruction,” Wheeler said. “That’s a line we can’t allow our community to cross. Not anymore. Enough is enough. It’s time to rise up and take immediate steps to repair and beautify our city. But I need the help of the entire community.”

This guy doesn't have a clue what's going on. (Or he has deliberately put his head in the Oregon loam.)

He's saying what you insist Democrats don't say. The people need to police themselves, not threaten to shoot each other. It has worked everywhere that BLM turned against agitators in their midst. There's such a load of anarchists in Portland, though, that it's going to take a long time to lock them all up.

It turns out that they've realized, that backing the riots and protest has played out against them in the end and now many democrats are trying to act as though they were against this crap.

Too little, too late if you ask me.

Then arrest, prosecute, and convict those few dozen.

JFC it's damned if you do and damned if you don't with Trump-suckers, because first they demand to know why Democratic leaders DON'T condemn the violence and destruction and demand an end to it, and then when they do, either they're clueless or "it's not good enough".

This is why most people regard Trumpers as not even worth talking to.

Who apparently are unable to stop it. Extreme authoritarian response.

They could stop it but some lefty governors and mayors painted themselves into a corner by siding against their own police departments. Now if they have their police clean it up it looks incredibly hypocritical and it’s basically admitting that they were wrong.

Anarchists have called Portland home for decades, as far back as the 1950's, in fact.
There will never be a way to eliminate all the black flaggers from Portland or Seattle.

Oh yeahh, that'll work ... the same tactics the nazis used against communist antifi during 1930s Germany.

Exactly. Far too little, far too late.

They could stop which is why Trump sent in thugs in unmarked vans to kidnap people? They could stop it which is why it's been going on?

If it's not already too late to 'clean it up'.

There's an exodus from these cities of the middle class and above people, so basically these cities tax base is disappearing with their money.

California, realizing this, has become innovative. You may leave California, but California's taxes will follow you for 10 years after you've left.

California Dems’ Wealth Tax Follows People Who Move Out of the State
Tax ‘avoidance’ will not be allowed; it’s California’s money

‘Excessive Wealth’

In the new bill is an introduction statement that the wealth tax is “for the benefit of accumulating excessive wealth in this state,” Globe contributor Chris Micheli reported.

Knowing about the huge outbound migration from California, Cavuto asked what would happen to wealthy people who move out of state. Bonta said tax “avoidance” would not be allowed as California would tax them for the next ten years, despite what state they live in. Bonta said that because they accrued the wealth in California, the state can continue to legally tax it.

“Tax avoidance,” with the primary purpose of reducing the valuation of a taxpayer’s worldwide net worth is required to be disregarded. “The bill authorizes the Franchise Tax Board to adopt regulations necessary to carry out these new statutory provisions including the valuation of certain assets that are not publicly traded,” Micheli said.

“AB 3088 requires the FTB to adopt regulation designed to prevent the avoidance or evasion of the wealth tax.”

Conversely, a billionaire who moves to California but acquired their wealth in another state, will still have to pay the proposed wealth tax for ten years.

“In California, we’ve had taxes on millionaires in the past. We raised taxes in 2012 by 3% — and the number of millionaires and billionaires in California has grown,” Bonta said. “We have 25% of the nation’s billionaires, 17% of the millionaires, those numbers are up and we’ve grown to be the fifth-largest economy in the world. So, while worthy of consideration it has not panned out.”

'Excessive Wealth'? :roll:

Why not start with the wealthy in state government and CA's wealthy federal representatives as a starting point? A test run? See how it goes.

Is he implying violence against violence ...? "rise up against ... ?"

To be fair, I don't think so.

This guy doesn't have a clue what's going on. (Or he has deliberately put his head in the Oregon loam.)
Maybe he can hold a party and cake cutting ceremony with the protests hit the 100th day! That'll, calm them down and make them happy. Maybe make some S'more over the flames of the latest burning building and hold a few molotov cocktail throwing contests - for distance and accuracy.

I don't condone the violence but it sure aint helping Biden. The failure of the DNC to condemn the violence is hurting them bigly now. They know it and are trying to rewrite history. Too little too late.
