  1. “Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps”
    ― Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto. Keep up the good work Comrade Ted .

  2. "Far Right"?? STOP calling LAW ABIDING PEOPLE FAR RIGHT !!!!!! "That way we can "allow them" to exercise their rights"??? The Supreme Law of the Land states you have no say in the matter. That way we can sift the weevils out of the flour ourselves….We The People.

  3. "If you're coming here to commit acts of violence, you're not welcome"…unless you're antifa, then we'll protect you.

  4. Scumbag mayor and far right protestors Fox News? These 2 are never trumpers anyway escape Portland Christians judgement will fall on Portland modern day sodom and Gomorrah

  5. the way american government treats the people coupled with apathetic non-existent parents these kids were setup for this behavior. its obvious they're getting worse and more violent and nobody is doing anything. to me this means the authority is actively supporting conflict rather than protecting civilian society from unrest. if authority won't do anything the people will act. the reason nobody has done anything is because this is a mob of angry children nobody takes children's tantrums seriously and nobody wants to hurt your stupid kids. they will never be taken seriously and their tantrums will grow. its time to treat them like adults and put them in prison for their behavior or let street justice take its course. im not opposed to the latter im quite ready to handle this myself.

  6. Antifa is nothing less than a treasonous entity subverting our nation. They are anything but American. Socialists Communists only want one thing and that is the destruction of our Constitution, our values of life, liberty, and prosperity and all that is great about America that we want to pass onto our children and all those after us. Antifa claim to be anti-fascist but they and their enablers' actions mirror that of totalitarian Communists committing treason in our country.

  7. WE are watching TED. Let's see how many ANTIFA criminals get arrested ? You've proven to be the instigator of ANTIFA under YOUR protective HAND !

  8. Apparently once again I'm confused, seems to be happening on a regular basis. Masked gangs of cowards protected by police allowed to disrupt peaceful business and perpetuate violence like what was done to Andy Ngo. Wouldn't that be labeled as domestic terrorism? But when your state is a sanctuary to Federal Outlaws anything goes correct? Most certainly sends that message I would suspect???

  9. This mayor is a liar it is the opposite. It is the intolerance of all the racist people who hate the whites it's very f**** simple

  10. So the right gets called far right.. While these assholes are called antifa activist? Give me a break!! FAKE NEWS!!

  11. "If you're coming to our City to commit acts of Violence, You are NOT Welcome here … Unless you're a Member of ANTIFA"! Mayor Ted Wheeler~

  12. Almost two months after Ngo was Assaulted and not one person Arrested?

    The COPS there KNOW who it is … but they, Like the Mayor, Support ANTIFA!!!

    Most WORTHLESS Cops on the Planet!

  13. This mayor has no intention of stopping violence from the clowns in Halloween costumes nor is he interested in arresting any of them.

  14. Ted Wheeler is supportive of the Social Communists Antifa goons terrorizing our citizens and Patriots around the country from exercising their liberties and rights as Americans. Per their say, we cannot love our country nor defend it nor exercise any of our amendments including right to assembly and free speech. Apparently all Americans are "far right" to them, even independent journalists, elderly people, and regular citizens being attacked by Antifa.

  15. LAW ENFORCEMENT READY READY TO WHAT??? STAND BY AND LET CIVILIANS CONSERVATIVE REPORTERS AND ANYONE WHO ISN'T ANTIFA GET THE CRAP BEATEN OUT OF THEM?

  16. Only after he felt he International glare on him …..otherwise it would be chaos as usual ….The people that value their small businesses and the citizens that value their safety should vote against the Parasitic Carcinogen called Antifa that is ruining the once beautiful east Coast….signed an outside Observer PS Sometimes Children Need Spankings!!!!!

  17. This guy puts on his Black mask and black attire when he goes home and looks in the mirror like silence of the lamb‘s and tucks it!!!!

  18. If you are white and love your country they call you far right. It is so wrong to lie everyday. God knows all. Mayor is covering antifa. He won't say antifa is violent.

  19. And today, patriots had a peaceful rally and as they left, Portland police allowed antifa to cross the bridge and attack the buses of the patriots leaving. Hey Portland, you have a terrorism problem. Not a "Far right" problem. IDIOTS!

  20. Watch the videos coming out now. The patriots just wanted to have a peaceful demonstration. The radicals were trying to hunt them down, and when they came upon isolated patriots, the older and weaker ones, they attacked them as a mob.

  21. this guy is a joke! Portland has been tolerating violence for years now. now that people are protesting. He's got a different standard. you guys need a new police commissioner and a new mayor.

  22. Shitty City should be the new informal name of the city. You've got the Big Apple, Chi Town, The Big Easy…now you've got Shitty City!

  23. "Don't let the shitty city get shut down."
    -Ted Wheeler

    It's only shitty because you allow Antifa to run amuck. What a weasel you are for dodging any mention of Antifa even when directly asked multiple times about them. Coward.

  24. Mr mayor if you meant a word of that stinky crap you just spit out then you would of done something to antifa those little punks need delt with you let them where masks and attack press like Andy you and kate brown need to go… the footage is all over youtube

  25. Translation what he is saying is, we don't want conservative groups hear and we (antifa) are ready for you.

  26. No one go into detail that is the problem of today media and political Hypocrisy.For this problem you learn Newton law "every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction".why Trump won ?..its not because he is racist but there is a many people who residing in community who feel neglected ,they not say anything openly otherwise media show them racist some of them now come openly and more extreme way but what about the people who are silent.Think.

  27. Lofty words from the man who allows Antifa to attack innocent people. With all due respect, this hypocrite needs to be thrown in jail.

  28. I hope one day Korea, China, whomever nukes Portland with ground zero the major's residence. He has not moved a finger to prosecute the antifa communists. His talking about "hate speech" gave him away. I consider him a communist traitor.

  29. Portland Mayor and Police support violent attacks by Antifa. Portland Mayor and Police are Communists Sympathizers and are not to be trusted.

  30. Yep, the mayor is NOW saying there will be arrests this weekend for violence, AFTER Ngo was attacked, with police a few yards away, yet he wants to target the right for standing up for themselves. We all know whats gonna happen; antifa soyboys will start a fight, then run crying like bitches and hiding behind cops pointing at their opposition to get them arrested. Hec the mayor all but printed it out on paper.

  31. Kinda late with that message. He should have said it the previous protest. Oh I forgot he’s a DUMB-ocrat and encouraged Antifa to incite violence so the corrupt police officers can arrest more Trump supporters.

  32. What a dissembling bastard! FA has been living under this olfactorily challenged nose for some years. FA doesn't come to Portland; they ARE Portland. This horrendous mayor, head of police, and scumbag should be thrown out of office for collusion and incompetence, tarred and feathered, and run out of town on a rail.

  33. If these "far right groups" were left alone to do their thing nothing of consequence would happen. They'd stand around a park waving flags for an hour or two then pack it in for the bar and head home.

  34. it isn't about politics where you been under your rock? that's all it's been about and that's all your city enjoys is controlling people into following your ideology you support antifa mr. mayor and you going to sit up here and say it's not about politics he is just another fraud another phony and I am over it

  35. nothing but talk to save face…
    portland is a crappy city. you think this mayor would have learned from over the years of vandalism and physical harassment… that these protests are nothing only but to start chaos..
    but when oregon is a democratic state run by a Democratic mayor… well then that only brings anger and violence which is all democrats want.
    this mayor is ALL TALK..
    NO ACTION NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!

  36. FBI should investigate this mayor to find out what his connections to ANTIFA are. Dude just implied that he blames white people and trump supporters.

  37. He hates Americans. He never speaks against Antifa, only what he calls "far right" and "white nationalist."
