In video captured by reporter Austen “Fleccas” Fletcher on Sunday, Rep. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called the violent riots rocking Portland and other cities across America “a myth.”
“It is true. There’s violence across the whole country,” Fletcher is seen saying to Nadler on a sidewalk. “Do you disavow the violence from Antifa that’s happening in Portland right now? There’s riots—”
“That’s a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, DC,” Nadler interjected. “About Antifa in Portland?” asked an incredulous Fletcher as Nadler allowed his handler to move him to a waiting car. “Sir, there’s videos everywhere online, there’s fires and riots, they’re throwing fireworks at federal officers, DHS is there. Look online. That’s crazy, Mr. Nadler.”
Crazy, indeed. Democrat leaders not only won’t disavow the property destruction and attacks on law enforcement by what the DHS properly calls “violent anarchists,” they won’t even acknowledge that the rioting exists. This is today’s Democrat Party.
