Urges governor to stop anarchist riots
Earlier on Friday, Representative Bill Post (R-Keizer) released the following statement on Governor Brown’s recent executive order and the ongoing violence in Portland:
“Oregon’s political leadership is so narrow-minded. The governor should have made this executive order long ago. This weekend, what is being called a “right-wing” group will be protesting in Portland, and now she wants to defend the community? The “right-wing” groups
being referenced do not have a history of violence in Portland, unlike some of the “left-wing” groups that have been protesting since May. There have been violent nightly wars in Portland for over 100 days with loss of life and heavy destruction of private and public property. Where was the concern then? Our political leadership only sees the enemy they choose to see and ignores the facts.
I strongly urge Governor Brown to extend this executive order to stop these anarchist riots from continuing as they have been since May.”
