Anarchy in Portlandia | Mayor Ted Wheeler to clamp down on protests at City Council meetings

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler to clamp down on protests at City Council meetings | OregonLive.com

The Portland Mayor and city commissioners are among the most progressive, left leaning politicians in the country. The protesters are left of the city council. That puts them in the anarchists, socialists and communists category. The more they get the more they want.

“Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said he will impose new rules allowing him to eject disruptive people from Portland City Council meetings after jeering protesters again prevented the council from doing city business Wednesday.

The council ultimately finished its work on city contracts, policies and spending behind locked doors.

Wheeler failed to quell chanting, taunting and even laughter from dozens of protesters who kept commissioners from talking to each other and hearing from staffers or the public.

Wheeler paused the meeting twice in the hopes protesters would settle down, and ultimately moved the meeting to behind locked doors at City Hall.”
