Portland police and the FBI are investigating a veiled death threat against Mayor Ted Wheeler, days after he promised to “take our city back” from the “anarchist mob,” according to a report.
The chilling threat was made in a video on Twitter Wednesday night in which self-confessed Antifa loyalist vows to continue rioting in the Oregon city — and includes the mayor’s home address as a warning, The Oregonian said.
“Blood is already on your hands, Ted,” says the video’s narrator, wearing a full-face mask and with an “Anonymous”-style altered voice.
“The next time, it may just be your own,” the narrator warns in the two-minute video — with a menacing chuckle as his address is posted.
“Ted, we are asking for the last time that you resign. If you ignore this message outright, the destruction to your precious way of life is going to escalate,” it warns.
