Portland’s continuing high crime rate further proves liberal Democrats’ failures in governance
In her “Ingraham Angle” commentary on Tuesday, host Laura Ingraham said that Portland, Oregon with a staggering violent crime rate continues to spiral out of control, as state and municipal Democrats largely ignore the crisis.
Ingraham noted that Oregon Gov. Kate Brown claimed in August that the true crisis was one of right-wing violence:
“Further threats and use of violence against people in the direction of property for larger or political social purposes undermines our growing commitment to a truly inclusive community. We use dangerous attempts to keep our community safe and undermine democracy. Committed to working together to combat that,” Brown said according to the host at the time.
Ingraham responded that left-wing Antifa rioters caused $500,000 in damages in Portland alone last week, something none of the “democracy defenders” like Brown condemned.
“Of course not! They don’t care, because they will say anything to maintain power and control, no matter how disastrous for their constituents,” she said.
Ingraham said that Portland had fallen from the political left “Model City”—a “bizarre” television show called “Portlandia”, starring Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen, as well as its 21st-century vibe “friendly”. A fun little town run by vegetarians and environmentalists”. “

It is all doomed, the host said, because leftist policies lead to a sad existence for the people there.
He noted that Brown and Mayor Ted Wheeler last year condemned then-President Trump for sending federal agents to suppress left-wing Antifa violence, as terrorist activists repeatedly called Mark O. Hatfield attacked the Federal Court.
“It’s all kind of sad, final, predictable act that liberal Democrats touch from Detroit to Oakland and now this reign of Portland terror always ends with chaos and escape and of course death.”
