Knights Party Press Release: July 24. 2020

The Associated Press, yesterday, Thursday July 23rd, reported “Portland’s Mayor tear-gassed by US agents as protest rages.”

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The mayor of Portland, Oregon was tear-gassed by U.S. government agents late Wednesday as he stood outside a federal courthouse during another night of protests against the presence of the agents dispatched by President Donald Trump to quell the city’s ongoing unrest.

Mayor Ted Wheeler, a Democrat, appeared slightly dazed and coughed and said it was the first time he’d been tear-gassed.

Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party, based in Harrison Arkansas said, “What did Mayor Wheeler expect? These Democratic mayors in our cities are standing in with, and in support of these BLM and ANTIFA rioters, and you know what they say, ‘birds of a feather, flock together,’ so if you’re going to join in with the rioting, expect to be treated as a rioter. The funny part is that these rioters are calling for Mayor Wheeler to step down!”
