Portland Mayor Shuts Down ‘Autonomous Zone’ Protest When It Gets Too Close To His Home (VIDEO)

There’s an old expression that goes: Not in my backyard.

This is like the ultimate expression of that.

Left wing protesters in Portland, Oregon were setting up an ‘autonomous zone’ like the one in Seattle. But it got shut down when it got a little too close to the home of the mayor.

Twitchy reports:

As Twitchy reported earlier, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had the cops clear out an “autonomous zone” that a mob just happened to be building in his neighborhood. Wheeler might be the biggest squish of a mayor after Seattle’s Jenny Durkan, but he wasn’t about to become a resident of an autonomous zone built by extremists outside his condo.

Both the Associated Press and fact-checking site Snopes have declared that Seattle’s Capitol Hill Ongoing Protest, or CHOP, is festive and has a carnival-like atmosphere, even though the local warlord can be seen on Facebook Live handing out AR-15s from the trunk of his car. If you believe right-wingers like President Trump, you’d think it was a mob that had armed members checking people at the border and shaking down local businesses.

How interesting that everything is different when it might affect the Democrat mayor.
