Democratic politicians who have lost control over their cities are busy pointing fingers to avoid responsibility for grotesque failures of the public trust. In Portland, Oregon, a radical leftist murdered a conservative in cold blood. The killer was a hardcore Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioter. A left-leaning judge released him despite wide-reaching charges.
Alleged shooter Michael Forest Reinoehl and his 17-year-old son were reportedly arrested in early June for racing their vehicles at over 100 mph while intoxicated and in possession of firearms. According to reports by an Oregon State Trooper, “usable amounts of marijuana and unidentified prescription pills” were found in the vehicle. Compounding the crazed behavior, Reinoehl’s 11-year-old daughter was in the back seat.
Despite gun charges, DUI, and reckless endangerment of a child, a Baker County judge allowed him to walk and the 48-year-old apparently remained in possession of his weapons. The Antifa and Black Lives Matter radical made no efforts to disguise his future criminal intent on social media.
“Every Revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight. There are so many of us protesters that are just protesting without a clue of where that will lead. That’s just the beginning that’s where the fight starts. If that’s as far as you can take it thank you for your participation but please stand aside and support the ones that are willing to fight,” Reinoehl reportedly posted on Instagram. “It will be a war and like all war, there will be casualties. I am 100% ANTIFA all the way!”
The psychopathic BLM and Antifa member was identified in videos targeting a Patriot Prayer advocate at a peaceful pro-Trump rally in Portland. The Democrat mayor has been trying to flip the script by pinning his failure to maintain order in the riot-torn city on unarmed conservatives and President Trump.
“It’s you who have created the hate and the division,” Mayor Ted Wheeler reportedly said in an attempt to evade responsibility. “You’ve tried to divide us more than any other figure in modern history. And now you want me to stop the violence that you helped create.”
Mayor Wheeler went on to imply that Trump supporters are not welcome in Portland and the presence of such conservatives perpetuates violence. What the Democrat failed to acknowledge is that law enforcement has officially classified more than a dozen violent protests as riots. President Trump sent federal agents to help quell the unrest, attacks on police, looting, arson, and shootings. Oregon Governor Kate Brown has resisted federal assistance to regain control over the city in a move to inflame the liberal base. As if wearing blinders, Governor Brown continues to throw her support behind Antifa and BLM even as people are killed in the streets.
“For months this summer, we have seen powerful images of Oregonians uniting for the cause of racial justice, calling for justice for black men and women who have been killed by police violence,” Brown reportedly said. “We remember them, we say their names.”
During her strategic speech, she went on to say names associated with the BLM cause. She failed to mention Aaron Danielson who was murdered in the Oregon streets by her violent voter base.
