Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler should seriously consider resigning from his job after posting a threatening tweet last week. Did he really think this would go over well?

In his tweet, Mayor Wheeler hinted at the use of live ammunition and federal officers. Is he trying to start a riot or does he want another Kent State? Either way, he is asking for trouble.

In case you don’t remember or are too young to know, thirteen students were shot and four of them were killed at Kent State in 1970 by members of the Ohio National Guard in an attempt to put an end to the violence caused by anti-war activists.

That shooting was a catalyst for massive protests across the country at the time.

Now, 50 years later, we are right back there again. Mayor Wheeler claims that federal officers may begin using live ammunition to quell the protests. It’s true when they say those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.

Mayor Wheeler exact words were:

This afternoon I was made aware of concerns within the community that federal agents may be authorized to use live ammunition on demonstrators this evening.

He must have received some negative feedback because the quickly followed up with this:

Given the deployment of federal agents to other American cities and the clear escalation of the federal government, this information was alarming. I have spoken with the U.S.Attorney of Oregon, Billy Williams, who assures me that the federal government has no plans to use live ammunition on Portlanders tonight, and that such an order would be unlawful. Nevertheless, I am sharing this information publicly out of an abundance of caution. If you plan to demonstrate tonight, please be safe.

He is gaslighting the situation just by using the words.
