Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf sent a letter to far-left Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler of Portland, Oregon on Monday.

It said get control of your city and protect your citizens or the federal government will. Mayor Wheeler did not respond to the letter or to the Third World revolution situation on his city streets. He merely went back to playing politics. Wolf asked him to read the letter again.

Wolf Shuts Down Wheeler

Wolf said:

“The chaos, destruction, and suffering in Portland are evils you can stop—and must stop. Consider what happened recently in Wisconsin—where the State of Wisconsin requested and received federal law enforcement assistance and the violence and looting there ended. I urge you to prioritize public safety and to request federal assistance to restore law and order in Portland.

We are standing by to support Portland. At the same time, President Trump has made it abundantly clear that there will come a point when state and local officials fail to protect its citizens from violence, the federal government will have no choice but to protect our American citizens. Despite this, you have stood by passively, arguing that the nightly violence ‘will ultimately burn itself out.’ The evidence demonstrates otherwise.”

Wheeler Plays Politics In Response

Wheeler retreated again into a purely political response against the president, ignoring his city and its citizens.

“Portlanders are on to you,” he said. “We have already seen your reckless disregard for human life in your bumbling response to the COVID pandemic. And we know you’ve reached the conclusion that images of violence or vandalism are your only ticket to reelection.”

And what is the response of Wheeler and his mob to the murders on their streets? Andy Ngo enlightens us:

A friend of the murdered conservative the mob crowed over relates the tragic story of his killing in Bolshevik-occupied Portland. Chandler Pappas was with his friend Jay Danielson when Danielson’s life was snuffed out by leftists.

Pappas said:

“We have a First Amendment in the country. And for whatever reason, there seems to be this opposition that thinks we can’t do that. They have been attacking us for years. Really for decades in the grand scheme of things but very heavily in Portland…

I think the two of us alone away from all the rest of the Trump rally with all the trucks and all the other noise going on, I think they isolated us and they thought they could get away with it. I think they were looking for somebody just like us who were down there unprotected who didn’t go and bring guns because we didn’t have the intention of killing people…

It takes a second for you to process everything that happened. ‘Did he just shoot at me?’ I’m OK. I turn over and Jay’s dead because he believed something different.

“Jay’s not a racist, a xenophobe or whatever,” he concluded. “He’s not an ‘ist’ or ‘ism.’ They executed my partner. They hunted him down.”
