Escape from Portland
Unarmed cops, an 18% murder rise, and vigilante justice.
January 7, 2019
Daniel Greenfield
 

It was a big year in Portland where the murder rate rose 18.6%. That was the perfect time for Portland’s progressive politburo to spend over $1 million on unarmed cops armed only with pepper spray.

There was a little bit of excitement when it was learned that their 200 hours of training would include “Taser Orientation” suggesting that they might be allowed to carry tasers. But Mayor Wheeler’s office explained that the weaponless cops weren’t being trained to use tasers, but “how to avoid being tased”.

Portlanders aren’t waiting for officers to show up and shout, “Don’t tase me, bro”. Instead in a city overrun with crime, they’re increasingly taking matters and guns into their hands.

Mr. M has a good friend in Portland. Bob definitely is a liberal, but their friendship is greater than political differences. Last night, Bob called and immediately started railing against Oregon's far left governor making a big deal out of being "bisexual." Bob was practically yelling, "Who the __ cares if she's bisexual?!?" This went on for quite a while.

I think there's hope for Bob.  happy77
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

The worst thing about electing the Far Left is you have to live under them. That's how you end up with economic deserts like Detroit. People will move out of Portland into the suburbs and Portland will become a crime-ridden cesspool that becomes a cash teat for the city's politicians. You will end up with just immigrants running stores and people living on crime/free government money. Then the pension system will collapse.
Hahahahaha....No seriously. Who is the President?

And then the leftists will escape the mess they've created - and infect some new area, kind of like what Californians are doing to Texas (or so I've heard).

And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses. Nehemiah 4:14 (KJV)
