Portland, Oregon ABC affiliate KATU reported an Antifa member punched Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) while he attempted to eat dinner with an unidentified woman at an upscale restaurant in the city’s Nob Hill neighborhood.
WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
Besides the alleged assault, the mayor endured being verbally accosted. The incident occurred at 8:30 pm (PT) Wednesday. The punch was not caught on video.
Townhall’s Bronson Stocking reports:
“You are going to be made to feel like the scum you are,” one of the protesters shouts. “F*ck you, f*ck you, shame on you.”
The alleged attack occurred just days after Mayor Wheeler slammed Antifa and said he was ready, finally, to “push back” against those who are “set on destroying our community.”
In August, a Trump supporter was shot and killed by an Antifa activist. And for months, Antifa supporters attacked the Hatfield Courthouse in Portland and dozens of officers were injured in the nightly riots. The violence was largely ignored by Democrats and the media.
