Portland mayor claims he didn’t order cops to ‘stand down’ in face of Antifa; Andy Ngo’s lawyer blasts him

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler fired off a response to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) via Twitter on Monday refuting claims that he ordered his police department to ‘stand-down’ in the face of Antifa protesters who marched in city streets — again — over the weekend.

His reply comes after Cruz called him out following the savage beating of independent journalist Andy Ngo, who was attacked by several Antifa mobsters as he was covering their protest.

“Dear @TedCruz,” Wheeler responded. At least get your facts straight. I ordered no such thing. Could you divert some of those investigation dollars to something that would actually benefit American cities? Infrastructure, affordable housing, mental health services come to mind,” he tweeted.

Harmeet Dhillon, Ngo’s attorney, wouldn’t let that one stand. She fired back at Wheeler noting that her client told Fox News on Monday that officers in his department admitted they were told not to interact with Antifa members.

“Mayor @tedwheeler is denying that there was a stand-down order, but see the video and judge for yourself,” she tweeted, referring to Ngo’s appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show.

“Officer told @MrAndyNgo that they didn’t want to ‘incite’ the Antifa mob by doing their jobs to protect citizens. Whose order was that? I’ll bet that any line cop who got into this job to help people, didn’t like the order, but had to follow it. We’ll find out what happened.”

Someone’s not being honest. As for Wheeler, he most certainly has ordered his police department to stand down for politically motivated reasons in the past.

As the Williamette Week reported in June 2018, the mayor ordered cops not to intervene in assisting federal ICE employees whose workplace was under siege by Left-wing lunatics because he disagrees with enforcing immigration laws.

American Liberty: “Established 1776” Order yours now!

“The policy being enacted by the federal government around the separation of very small children from their parents is an abomination,” Wheeler tweeted. “I want to be very clear I do not want the @PortlandPolice to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency that I believe is on the wrong track, that has not fully lived American values of inclusion and is also an agency where the former head suggested that people who lead cities that are sanctuary cities like this one should be arrested.”

Dhillon says she’ll get to the bottom of what happened with her client. We believe her; Wheeler should too.

  1. This Mayor of Portland sounds like he’s a Radical/Liberal, who wants to decide that citizens of Portland are NOT worthy of being protected by their Police Dept. that OBVIOUSLY he told AGAIN to “Stand Down”…..

    I hope this Mayor is fined, fired and NEVER sees another position wherein people are put at risk, by the likes of these “Paid Antifa TERRORISTS, who think they do NOT have to follow LAWS, and can attack, assault and injure those they disagree with.” Find these Little Bastards, and throw them in jail, then OFF to GITMO, where they can join OTHER TERRORISTS WHO ARE A THREAT TO AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!

    American Citizens are “Tired of being silenced, bullied, and attacked by these TERRORIST THUGS, that the likes of Maxine Water, etal. have “Given them the GO AHEAD TO SURROUND CITIZENS, AT MALLS, RESTAURANTS, OR WHEREVER THEY MAY BE, TO ‘MAKE THEM LEAVE, OR GET OUT’…..THAT IS PROMOTING VIOLENCE, AND MAD MAXINE SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM CONGRESS FOR FOMENTING VIOLENCE AGAINST ANYONE WHO IS NOT OF HER ‘CORRUPT DEMOCRAT PARTY!’

    GUESS SOROS IS STILL PAYING THESE TERRORISTS, JUST AS HE’S PAYING FOR THE “ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION OF AMERICA IN SOUTH AMERICA, PROVIDING BUSES, FOR THEM TO GO TO MEXICO, THEN ONTO THE USA…..INVESTIGATE THAT AGITATOR, AND AMERICA-HATER, ALSO, AND SEND HIM BACK TO HUNGARY WHO WANT TO CHARGE HIM THERE ALSO.”

  2. The Portland mayor may not have ordered police to stand down while Soros-paid Antifa thugs brutalized Andy Ngo, but the leftist mayor seems to have pulled a Pontius Pilat tactic by washing his hands of it. He stood by and let the violence proceed. He is complicit with the radical left Deep State cabal in working to turn his city, then his state, and finally—as the cherry on the top of their anti-sovereignty cake—our entire country—the best nation on earth—into a Sharia Law caliphate and a nightmarish dictatorship. That’s their goal, and if they win it’s goodbye to freedom. They are evil and sick, and determined to succeed. They actually murder those who oppose them or get too close to them and know too much to stay alive. Right, Clintons? Stay strong, Patriots. We can’t allow those psychopaths to win. May God protect us from the left’s Satanic agenda. Trump 2020!

    Antifa…What a bunch of cowards. Not one of them will show up to the challenge put forth by THE PROUD BOYS and others. They have been called out, and now they are soiling their jock straps. It was publicized that the Oath Keepers were hoping they would show up in DC a couple weeks ago, but not one of them showed their criminally masked face. And in June 2 years ago in NYC. Same thing. They were invited but only 2 masked faces were seen, hiding behind the barricade, petrified from fear, letting their friends with their fart whistles make fools out of themselves. No, the only time they show up is when people are peacefully speaking their minds, and then they hit you from behind, just like the weasels they are. They get their flash mob call only if their target crowd looks weak to them. They love beating on senior citizens and women with babies in their arms, like they did at the restaurant in Charlottesville. Pusillanimous punks with puke for brains.
