Portland's pathetic attempt heyrev Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 1,778 Likes Received: 1,908 Sep 4, 2020 #1 Kate Brown released a statement concerning violence in her state. It begins: "As elected officials and community leaders, we are coming together to condemn the acts of violence in Portland that have occurred as thousands of Oregonians have been peacefully protesting for racial justice and police accountability. The violence must stop. There is no place for white supremacy or vigilantism in Oregon." What?!? So what is it--peaceful protests or violent riots? And the perpetrators are white supremacists?!? Am I going crazy or is this the most pathetic attempt at addressing blatant crime in the annals of government? Even for Oregon, this is laughable. Even as benign as it is, two of the city council members wouldn't sign it. Too much 'muscle' for them I guess? Troianus Acies likes this.
