JUST AN ‘IDEA’? Terror Group Antifa Posts Real Death Threat to Portland Mayor

'We are not just challenging the idea of having Ted as a mayor; we are challenging the idea of having mayors at all...'

Federal authorities and Portland law enforcement were rushing to investigate a two-minute Twitter video posted by Antifa that threatened the life of far-left Mayor Ted Wheeler.

“Blood is already on your hands, Ted,” a masked narrator said in the video, according to The Oregonian. “The next time, it may just be your own.”

Democrats and their deep-state allies in the intelligence community have repeatedly gaslighted the public by downplaying the threat—if not outright denying the existence—of domestic terrorism group.

During debates last year, then-candidate Joe Biden refused to condemn them and insisted that they were an “idea” rather than an organization.

But with leftists now fully installed in power—and no Donald Trump to scapegoat for the violence and destruction in radical cities like Portland and Seattle, which have given safe harbor to the anarchist subversives—the tune is quickly beginning to change.

As Portland’s rates for murder and violent crime have skyrocketed, Wheeler—who was, himself, violently assaulted in January—now laments his support for defunding police and efforts to seek solidarity with anti-government rioters.

He recently called on citizens to “take the city back” and begin doxing the lawbreaking leftists.

“They want to burn, they want to bash, they want to intimidate, they want to assault,” Wheeler said last week while declaring a state of emergency. “Our job is to unmask them, arrest them and prosecute them.”

The announcement led some of the more snowflake Antifa members to complain that they were being treated unfairly.

However, the more hardened ones quickly proceeded to double-down with their death threat, which first appeared on social media Wednesday night.

The anonymous speaker, whose voice was altered,

“We are not just challenging the idea of having Ted as a mayor; we are challenging the idea of having mayors at all,” it said.

“We want abolition,” it continued. “Abolition is absolute. If peaceful marches, speeches and voting were enough to bring about that goal, then we would have already been there.”

After having pouted earlier that Wheeler valued “windows more than lives,” the person hiding behind the post asserted, “Window smashing and riots are a necessary escalation when those in power have proven that they are unwilling to listen.”

For good measure, the nihilist speaker threw in some climate-change alarmism, suggesting that the new-world anti-government order would somehow find a way to continue regulating carbon emissions.

Spokespeople for Wheeler, Portland police and the FBI all confirmed that the matter was under investigation and that the law-enforcement agencies were working together.

But left-wing activists seemed to be siding more with Antifa than with Wheeler over the direction that the city should take.

The ACLU of Oregon denounced Wheeler’s appeal to hold the terrorist rioters accountable, claiming it would promote vigilantism—from the Right, of course.

“His comments are inappropriate, irresponsible, and dangerous,” said an ACLU statement. “After more than four years as police commissioner, Ted Wheeler must finally recognize the role that unchecked police violence has in escalating tension in Portland.”

Some on the Left were even attempting to link Wheeler with former president Donald Trump, who called him a “fool” last year for his soft stance on the riots, resulting in a public war of words.

Propagandist posts from radical leftist blogs now refer to Wheeler as a “Trumper.”
