  1. I'll translate what he said. Any conservatives or republicans will be arrested for having a difference of opinion. If you are ANTIFA you have my blessings in terrorizing conservatives and republicans and you may set the city on fire comrades.

  2. Veteran here….
    Of course there's cameras.
    I saw the online footage of NGO being beaten, is that not enough?!.
    I'm having second thoughts about this Fox news, your talk just doesn't convince me your on the side of the citizens.

  3. Why not enforce "NO MASKS ALLOWED?" Otherwise how could they be ID? If investigators can't find Andy Ngo's attackers BY NOW, then how do they expect any future arrests? Either the mayor is dimwitted, or he just doesn't care!! Antifa goes to these types of events to fight, that's the problem!! Someone needs to record and observe HOW Antifa punks arrive! Is it by bus, car/van pool? Check registration and license plates. Trace them back to good old Georgie boy and wa la, you might actually have something there!!!

  4. Yeah right Portland's f**** joke and their police support antifa terrorists I don't believe one word this guy says

  5. Why do these two make it sound like there are Nazis coming to Portland, "far right", if the mayor had not stood down while the reporter was being beaten senseless these people would not be showing in Portland.

  6. Expose this thug for all he is Andy Gno did an old fella get a crow bar over the head why would any sane person vote dems when they act like nazis

  7. America is not buying what he is selling. On one breath he says people have a right to free speech and on the next he says bad things were said. He means Antifa can still act violently.

  8. I was Verbally assaulted by an Oregonian on a plane to visit a sister in Portland. He heard me talking to nicely about Trump and got very upset, telling me I was not wanted there in Portland and to go home! This guy is like 4x my size and stands over me ducking from the ceiling height….finally the steward made him sit or leave himself.

  9. Yeah right , Antifa has an established headquarters in Oregon since 2004 … their purpose is to intimidate Conservatives and conservative free speech by threatening violence against any who would exercise their conservative fee speech …

  10. The people of Portland are to blame—they elected this violent liberal. You get what you elect. This is not rocket science….this man hates the city he is mayor of and the US in total.

  11. You don't get involved in public safety either, it seems. Antifa? We don't get involved in politics here so hands off the little darlings when you're in my city, Buster!

  12. This mayor is corrupt and should be investigated for any crimes he may have committed. Portland Oregon will most likely be ground zero for the next civil war.

  13. ANTIFA ARE THE VIOLENT ONES. I know ppl going and they ARE NOT "RIGHT WINGERS". Their Police protect ANTIFA FACIST TERRORISTS.

  14. In other words ANTIFA will get away with everything and everyone else will get arrested. Antifa are the ones starting the violence you asshat

  15. This mayor of Portland is so full of crap, he still never admitted that antifa is causing the issues, and the reporter who got beaten in June still is waiting for justice, this mayor is a total libitard do nothing moron, the people voted for this loser they get to enjoy him as their mayor, lucky them

  16. BS, they have stood back and let AntiFa assault people and do nothing about it. As long as they allow hiding your face they are complicit with AntiFa.

  17. “We’ve built partnerships”…as if the notion of State and Federal law enforcement working together is somehow novel and unique. What a spinner.

  18. Yeah, unless Portland gets a new mayor who doesn't live off soy infusions, violent Portland protestors and terrorists like Antifa have nothing to worry about.

  19. Why is he telling his friends, antifa, that their violence will not be tolerated? He's previously told the Portland Police to stand down and let antifa takeover the city. I guess the poltroon is up for re-election or something.

  20. Really ted, why wasn’t action taken when that reporter was being assaulted? Oh but now there’s right wing personnel and now action is gonna be taken? Pathetic, resign or do your job! Twit!

  21. Wheeler refused to denounce Antifa. That tells the whole story. I'll be watching several sites to see if ANTIFA is stopped and locked up. My guess is they wont, but good conservatives will be. We shall see.

  22. OOPS!! HE PULLED A BIDEN BLUNDER😂
    “ DON’T LET THE SH*TTY CITY GET SHUTDOWN “ 🤣🤣🤣
    Kudos for letting YOUR TRUE FEELING OUT🤷🏻‍♀️
    🇺🇸TRUMP FOREVER 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  23. Notice how he says "national rising tide of violence towards women, towards people of color, towards immigrants" yet can't cite a single example that didn't turn out to be a farce.

  24. What is different this time is there is a lot of attention being paid to pdx and ppb policies.
    He did say shitty city.

  25. We already know some of Trump supporter support hate, viloence and rascism and the news already exposed one in El Paso we havent forget! And said the same thing Trump said INVASION! So we know thats a alt right code and now coming into the light! Exposed!!!

  26. We will enforce the raw? Freudian slip? This is democrat versus republican. Get it 👉 right Fox. U guys just teleprompter readers. This is real world.

  27. Same guy who told the police to stand by while they put up with Antifa beating on cars and threatening people.

  28. Wheeler is such a fake. He has no intention of having any Antifa arrested. He and Kate Brown fully support Antifa, and probably have friends and relatives in that disgusting organization. They ARE Antifa.

  29. THE PORTLAND MAYOR SHOULD BE FITTED WITH PORTLAND CEMENT BOOTS AND DROPPED OFF THE NEAREST WHARF TO WASH OFF ALL OF HIS DIRTY POLITICS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN. NOTE THAT, AT 5. 05 MINUTES INTO THE VIDEO, HE SAYS REFERS TO PORTLAND AS THE "SHITTY", INSTEAD OF CITY. LIKELY, A FREUDIAN SLIP, PERHAPS, THE ONE THAT HE IS WEARING UNDERNEATH HIS ANTIFA 'STREET CLOTHES'…

  30. Antifa is gonna dress up like trump supporters and get violent. It was on antifa web pages. It was brought to police attention. Mayor or police aren't gonna do nothing about it. They are gonna sabotage this rally.

  31. Didn't he say that we know the rhetoric against people of colour ,women bla bla bla is from the far right ,but when asked about antifa he said we don't get involved with politics ,the mans a nitwit.

  32. Ted Wheeler is a criminal violating constitutional law. He illegally hold 2 offices of Oath as mayor and police commissioner. He's a traitor to his oath to uphold the constitution and should be prosecuted . He's a defacto Mayor and defacto police commissioner. Ted Wheeler and Governor Kate Brown are TRAITORS.

  33. Yeah, I watched his stupid speech. Everything he said pertains more to the punks ruining the streets of his city (anti)fa but of course he has to seal the deal with "the hateful rhetoric coming from the president". Conservatives are taking to your streets, Wheeler, because your goon squad doesnt discern from actual white supremacists nirmal free speech advocates. To include black trans free speech advocates marching against their voices being silenced and being attacked by your fascist squad of thugs "anti" fa. The chickens have come home to roost Wheeler.
