The Multnomah County Republican Party joins U.S. Senator Ted Cruz in condemning Mayor and Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler for the Portland Police Bureau’s continued refusal adequately to police Antifa thugs that ran wild again this weekend. Despite extremely violent and widespread attacks, even including a vicious attack that put independent journalist Andy Ngo in the hospital, the Portland Police Bureau apparently managed to arrest only three people.
The MCRP calls upon the President and Attorney General to restore effective federal law enforcement in Oregon. “It is long past time for the federal government to invoke fundamental federal civil rights statutes, like 18 U.S.C. § 241, that make it a felony for groups of people to run around in masks attacking other people for exercising their First Amendment rights,” said Party Chair James Buchal.
