Oregon Democrats Issue Statement on Violence
Is white supremacy really a problem in Oregon?

After nearly being recalled, Oregon's governor Brown seems to be avoiding calling out the identity of those who are obviously the true culprits of the months of violence in downtown Portland Oregon. They are the groups popularly known as "Antifa" and 'BLM(Black Lives Matter, the organization)". They are Left-wing groups, so it would not serve the Democrat agenda to rightfully call them out. She instead insists that the "peaceful protests" are necessary, and will continue, in order to advance her idea of "Racial Justice" and "Police Reform" in Oregon. Governor Kate Brown has issued the following statement along with other elected officials and community leaders:

“As elected officials and community leaders, we are coming together to condemn the acts of violence in Portland that have occurred as thousands of Oregonians have been peacefully protesting for racial justice and police accountability.

“The violence must stop.

“There is no place for white supremacy or vigilantism in Oregon.

All who perpetrate violent crimes must be held equally accountable.

“Together, we are committing ourselves to do the hard work that will bring meaningful change for racial justice and police reform.”
