Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, a Democrat, is moving from his $840,000 condo to avoid rioters who have repeatedly targeted the building, including setting fire to a dentist’s business on the first floor of the building as they called for him to resign. Wheeler wrote to neighbors in his building to say it would be “best for me and for everyone else’s safety and peace” for him to move from the building that rioters smashed windows and tried to torch on his 58th birthday. There were no police on the scene per his directive of ‘deescalation’, according to a reporter on Twitter.

The Democratic mayor of Portland, Ore., is moving from his $840,000 condo to avoid rioters who have repeatedly targeted the building, according to a report.

Ted Wheeler wrote to neighbors in his building to say it would be “best for me and for everyone else’s safety and peace” for him to move from the building that rioters tried to torch on his 58th birthday Monday, according to The Oregonian.

“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position,” Wheeler reportedly wrote, according to a screenshot of the email.

“It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.”

The mayor bought his two-bedroom condo in the building with 114 units for $840,000 in 2017, the paper said, citing property records. It has regularly been a scene of protests, with fireworks lit and lights shone on the building as fires also get lit in the street.

Wheeler has faced harsh criticism for his handling of the protests in the City of Roses for 97 consecutive nights since George Floyd’s police-custody death in Minneapolis in May. He has sympathized with protesters, called for cops to refrain from arrests and also pledged to defund the police.

President Trump on Sunday called him a “wacky Radical Left Do Nothing Democrat Mayor of Portland” who has “watched great death and destruction of his City during his tenure.”

Portland’s police chief, Chuck Lovell, used the arson attack on Wheeler’s condo building as proof that “the nightly violence is coming at increased cost.”

“Our elected officials need to do their part to draw a line in the sand and to hold people accountable,” he said, calling for “urgent action.”

“The violent behavior must end,” the chief said.

Wheeler also attacked the acts of “senseless violence” that “range from stupid, to dangerous, to criminal” — while highlighting alleged police brutality and saying he still stands with protesters.

“Elected leaders – or those seeking office – who remain silent in the midst of these acts of violence and criminal destruction are equally complicit,” he wrote.

“The community must rise up and say ‘enough is enough’ and hold all of us accountable. We cannot truly move on together and make the positive changes we want to see until this violence is stopped. All violence.

The Transition Integrity Project (TIP), reportedly funded by Soros, prepared for a clear Trump win with a plan for Joe Biden to refuse to concede, while expecting the military to force Trump out of office. A “street fight,” would be advised in this scenario rather than legal battles or “elites observing norms.”

Just about everyone in the country except the FBI knows this is not true. The FBI is protecting Antifa, allowing it to create chaos and terror throughout the nation.

Vicarious liability! Those injured, or subject to violence, and those close to victims of murder in Portland riots should file lawsuits against the Mayor of Portland, and identified offenders, the City of Portland, and whoever else is directly, or indirectly responsible.
