Portland businesses fleeing downtown offices due to nightly BLM riots

Demorat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler

The City of Portland is on day 80-something of demorat-approved nightly chaos: Rioting, looting, burning buildings and people being injured. It’s a dangerous place for residents to visit.

Apparently some businesses have had enough and are packing up and leaving. From NY Post:

Large companies are fleeing offices in downtown Portland — because nightly Black Lives Matter riots are making the heart of the Oregon city a no-go area, according to a report.

“Businesses are leaving,” Andrew Hoan, president and CEO of the Portland Business Alliance (PBA), told KATU.

“The financial consequences to the downtown corridor are a running calculation that is almost impossible to wrap your mind around,” he said — with one company already saying the riots have cost $20 million in damage and lost business.

“You have blocks and blocks of plywood. You have graffiti. You have an accumulation of damages that are unrepaired, an ongoing perception that coming downtown is not a safe place,” Hoan said.

“We need to start to turn the corner now, so that this sort of irreparable damage does not last,” the business leader said.

Portland has seen regular violence and destruction during 83 consecutive nights of protests, with Tuesday once again being declared a riot as a mob smashed its way into a government building and set fires.”

Good job, demorats. Remember this in November.

You mean that when terrorists loot a business, raze the building, and beat the proprietors…the business closes down and leaves!? No way!

No, they won’t stop voting for “D.rats”. They will move to a red or purple state and do the same. They can’t figure that out;)

The problem is that, once the Dems solidify control of a state or city, they so RIG the system that they can’t be turned out of office-not PEACEFULLY, anyway…

I see the same result coming for Chicago after the Miracle Mile debacle. And New York. If the city won’t protect your business and people are afraid (or not allowed) to patronize you, what reason is there to stay? It could happen in many cities. Then where will they get taxes to support the natives and idiots burning their own towns down? Did they even consider that?

BTW, Wheeler, meet your half-brother, DeBlabio.

It seems so clear to me that the first thing needed is to blow the Democrats out of power in this city and state. But will the Portland voters operate on such common sense as that? I hope and pray the answer is yes.
