Mayor Ted Wheeler to President Trump, after the President once again offered to send federal troops to protect innocent lives and property in terrorist-laden Portland, Oregon:
“We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery,” Wheeler wrote to Trump. “When you sent the Feds to Portland last month you made the situation far worse. Your offer to repeat that disaster is a cynical attempt to stoke fear and distract us from the real work of our city.”
Translation: “We are on the side of the looters and thugs. They are redistributing wealth and creating division. We LIKE that. Leave us alone. We WANT people to be at each other’s throats. We WANT to destroy civilization. Deep down, we hate ourselves and we hate all the glorious things our civilization has done for us. We feel like we don’t deserve it. That’s why we detest America more than we can say. You assert prosperity like it’s a GOOD thing. That makes you, President Trump, evil and hateful. The only way to achieve social justice and economic equality is to make everybody the same. Black Lives Matter and Antifa are doing that, here in Portland. We WANT that. If you actually claim it’s better for everyone of all races to live in a free, prosperous and civil enviornment, while still being unequal economically — well, President Trump, that makes you a racist. If you’re not a Marxist … then you’re a racist. P.S. Don’t think that I personally practice ANY of this when it comes to my own life. The more comfortable and wealthy I can be, the better. But I am aiding the social justice warriors in their quest for the leveling of America. So I need to be comfortable.”
