(Tea Party PAC) – Democrats just keep digging their graves deeper and deeper. For a long time after President Trump’s election, many voters who identify as Democrats were easily duped because the lies weren’t so outlandish, despite the fact that they were still lies, for example Trump being a racist or xenophobe. Now, however, they’re just brazenly lying right in American’s faces when all Americans have to do is get on social media to see the truth with their very own eyes.
Despite the fact that anyone with a smartphone can get on Twitter or Facebook and see any number of videos of the protests being anything but “peaceful,” Democrat House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) insisted that the violent Antifa and BLM riots going on in Portland are just “a myth.”
Here’s what happened when Nadler was approached by journalist Austen Fletcher in DC and asked if he would disavow the violence:

“It is true. There’s violence across the whole country,” Fletcher said, “Do you disavow the violence from Antifa that’s happening in Portland right now? There’s riots—”
“That’s a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.,” Nadler claimed without evidence.
“About Antifa in Portland?” Fletcher pressed.
“Yes—” Nadler once again claimed without evidence.
“Sir, there’s videos everywhere online,” Fletcher said as Nadler walked away. “There’s fires and riots, they’re throwing fireworks at federal officers. DHS is there. Look online. It gets crazy, Mr. Nadler.”
Of course, Nadler was quickly rushed into a car and away from the camera by what we can assume was an aide.
Nadler’s remarks totally contradict social media videos that actually show the violence and rioting and also goes against what the Department of Homeland (DHS) has to say about what’s happening in Portland.
“The violent situation Portland has witnessed for the past eight weeks continues with violent anarchists rioting on the streets as federal law enforcement officers work diligently and honorably to enforce federal law, defend federal property, and protect the lives of their fellow officers,” DHS said in a statement on Sunday. “As federal officers left the courthouse to respond to attacks on the fence, just like on previous nights they were met by rioters with hard projectiles, mortar style fireworks and lasers that can cause permanent blindness. Over the previous 24 hours, such assaults have resulted in at least 14 federal officers injured.”
The Department of Justice said in a statement late last week:
According to court documents, since May 26, 2020, protests in downtown Portland have been followed by nightly criminal activity including assaults on law enforcement officers, destruction of property, looting, arson, and vandalism. The Hatfield Federal Courthouse has been a nightly target of vandalism during evening protests and riots, sustaining extensive damage.
U.S. Marshals Service deputies and officers from the Federal Protective Service, Homeland Security Investigations, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection working to protect the courthouse have been subjected to nightly threats and assaults from demonstrators while performing their duties.
Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf added on Twitter yesterday, “Day 56. Last night six DHS law enforcement officers were injured in Portland. To be clear, criminals assaulted FEDERAL officers on FEDERAL property…and the city of Portland did nothing.”
“It’s time Portland join other responsible cities around the country to hold criminals accountable and protect federal property and officers,” Wolf continued.

But apparently, your eyes deceive you, it’s all just “a myth.” Luckily, this is exactly the kind of chicanery that’s turning people away from the Democratic Party.
