The Portland Police Department (PPD) and the FBI are investigating a purported Antifa video message threatening Portland Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler.
In a video that surfaced online last week, a person in a white mask standing outside a light rail station says that Antifa will continue to riot and destroy the city until Wheeler resigns from office. At the end of the video, the person also threatens Wheeler directly while flashing the mayor’s home address on screen. The masked person says:
Hello. We come to you as a small collective within the anarchist and antifascist community and I speak for the whole. As each individual may carry different ideologies and beliefs about how things could should or will be accomplished, we hope with this message to simply convey a few points that are commonly agreed upon within this community.
The mayor of this city is undeserving of his position. He has made it abundantly clear that windows to him are more important
