This left-wing American city is in dire straits after one gut-wrenching report

The Left has completely broken from reality.

And Democrat politicians are jumping on board with both feet.

Now this left-wing American city is in dire straits after one gut-wrenching report.

Portland has become ground zero for Antifa terrorism, and the predictable result is more death.

The city just broke its record for annual homicides with over two months to go.

Fox News reports:

“The number of homicides in Portland has now surpassed its previous annual record of 66, set in 1987 – and there are still more than two months to go in the calendar year…The homicides come as Portland’s police department is struggling to keep up amid an acute staffing shortage and budget cuts.”

One of the departments cut from the budget was the gun crime unit due to claims of “racism.”

Portland devolved into a war zone in 2020 amid the George Floyd riots.

A federal courthouse was firebombed nightly for several weeks.

And one Antifa terrorist murdered a Trump supporter in cold blood while walking down the street with a friend.

Fox News continued:

“The Pacific Northwest city is now implementing novel solutions aimed at improving safety, including adding traffic barrels to prevent drive-by shootings and suspending minor traffic stops so officers can focus on immediate threats . . . Nationally, homicides increased by nearly 30% from 2019 to 2020, based on FBI data. However, in Portland, deadly violence is increasing at a faster rate than nearly all major cities, with an 83% increase in homicides in 2020 . . .”

As crime spikes in the city, Mayor Ted Wheeler and Governor Kate Brown do nothing.

Both are terrified of their Left flank, so they allow Antifa goons to do whatever they want.

Wheeler allowed Antifa thugs to chase him out of his own apartment complex – he even moved to a different location after that.

Another Antifa lunatic allegedly punched him in the face in a restaurant when Wheeler was with his family.

Wheeler recently won re-election because he was the supposed “moderate” in the race.

His two opponents were a woman who calls herself the “Antifa Mayor” and a radical activist that was even to the Left of her.

Portland has been trying to court new businesses, but they can’t even show developers and executives downtown Portland because it has become an embarrassment.

Crime and homelessness are running rampant, and officials aren’t doing anything, all in the name of “progressivism” – a disease that is rotting this American city to its core.
