Jerry Nadler must not watch the news.
Or he's on Antifa's pay-roll.
When a social media personality, Austen Fletcher, a.k.a. Essential Fleccas, asked him to comment on the Antifa riots being documented across multiple media sources, Nadler flat out denied it.
From Breitbart News:
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called the violent riots, which have destroyed property and injured numerous law enforcement officers, “a myth” on Sunday
“It is true. There’s violence across the whole country,” reporter Austen Fleccas said to Nadler. “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, DC,” Nadler said.
This is diametrically opposed to what the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) assessment of the situation 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 issued 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.”
And more from The NYPost:
The high ranking New York Democrat is being assailed for his comments online. Among the people who blasted Nadler for his comment was Eric Trump.
“This is the Democratic Party in 2020,” President Trump’s youngest son said in a tweet.
Elijah Schaffer, a member of conservative media company Blaze Media, also reacted to the encounter.
“Portland is at war every night, but Rep Jerry Nadler says my video coverage of Antifa violence & vandalism is a ‘myth,’” he wrote. “Antifa is very real, & they are incredibly dangerous.”
Protests in Portland were declared a riot early Sunday as thousands breached a federal courthouse where federal agents are being stationed, according to police.
Throughout the night police fired teargas in violent clashes with protesters who retaliated with fireworks, officials said, with at least 26 arrests.
They declared a riot in the early hours after “thousands” gathered at the federal courthouse and Justice Center and pulled down some of the fence, the Portland Police Bureau said.

“Throughout the night some people in this crowd spent their time shaking the fence around the building, throwing rocks, bottles, and assorted debris over the fence, shining lasers through the fence, firing explosive fireworks into the area blocked by the fence, and using power tools to try to cut through the fence,” the bureau said in a statement.
“People wore gas masks, carried shields, hockey sticks, leaf blowers, flags, and umbrellas specifically to thwart police in crowd dispersal or attempt to conceal criminal acts. People against the fence sprayed unknown liquids through it toward the courthouse. People tied rope to the fence and attempted to pull it down,” the bureau said.
“At about 1:03 a.m. people in the crowd attached a chain to the fence and with many people pulling managed to pull a section of it down,” the bureau said, with protesters also lighting fires in the street.
“People climbed over the fence to get close to the federal courthouse. People continued to launch mortar style fireworks at ground level that were exploding near others.”
The Democrats in our legislative and executive offices are treating these rioters as their para-military forces.
There is no condemnation, no call to peace by Jerry Nadler.
Eventually, these riots are going to move into a neighborhood that isn't so friendly, and that's when the liberal snowflakes will be dialing 911 til their fingers fall off.
The only problem is, thanks to them, there may soon be no one answering on the other line.
These elements in our country and the treasonous politicians enabling them are going to cause a disintegration of our society if people don't start getting tough.
That doesn't have to meen civil violence, it can hopefully mean elected officials with courage and the silencing of the propaganda arms of the Democratic Party in the Media.
