Democrats have now abandoned any attempts to even pretend to appeal to moderate Americans with their defense of ANTIFA and the rioting that has rocked Portland for nearly two months.
Following a viral video of federal CBP agents dressed in camouflage arresting a black-clad anarchist, Dems and their front groups swarmed to the defense of the anarchists and criminals as they have done throughout the Trump presidency.
Some would suggest that Democrats are enabling the rioters and one of those who has done so is Republican Senator Ted Cruz.
In a tweet sent during another weekend of mayhem in Portland, Cruz pointed the finger at the fully-radicalized Democratic party and its shock troops.

Cruz, R-Texas, retweeted a graphic video that purports to show Antifa and Black Live Matter activists attacking a boarded-up federal courthouse in Portland overnight Friday.
“This is not Fallujah. This is not Beirut. This is America,” Cruz tweeted. “And Dem politicians are facilitating & cheering them on.”
The Texas Republican had previously called for the investigation of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler who has practically given ANTIFA the keys to his city.
“To federal law enforcement: investigate & bring legal action against a Mayor who has, for political reasons, ordered his police officers to let citizens be attacked by domestic terrorists.”
The video that spurred a flurry of lawsuits against the Trump administration including the ACLU which used to be a defender of civil liberties before becoming a legal arm of the Democratic party is disturbing but a necessary measure to restore order.
That drove top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi to a fit of rage that the feds would dare to muss a hair on the heads of her party’s not so secret paramilitary arm.
Pelosi took to Twitter to rail against the CBP agents, comparing them to “stormtroopers” and promoting the big lie that the “protests” are of a peaceful nature.
According to Madame Speaker:
“Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti. Those are not the actions of a democratic republic.
@DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission.
Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”
“First Amendment speech should never be met with one-sided violence from federal agents acting as Trump’s secret police, especially when unidentified. This is disgraceful behavior we would expect from a banana republic — not the government of the United States.”
Pelosi’s rabid goons in the House which now has more in common with the old Soviet Politburo than a constitutional institution of American government are warming up for investigations after a trio of committee heads led by the morbidly obese Trump nemesis Jerrold Nadler sent a letter to the DHS and DOJ inspector generals over the weekend.
As former President George W. Bush famously put it: “you are either with us or with the terrorists” and there is little doubt to which side that Pelosi and her Democrats are on.
