Ted Cruz Calls For Investigation Of Portland Mayor Amid Antifa Riots Overunning Portland [Video]
Portland, Oregon is not the place to be right now.
There has been a large increase in violence lately given the growth of Antifa in Oregon, and now Senator Ted Cruz is calling for the Mayor of Portland to be investigated after many have been severely injured.
According to The Daily Wire,
More Antifa violence erupted in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, when “demonstrators” physically assaulted gay conservative journalist Andy Ngo, an elderly man, and at least six others, among them police officers. In response, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called on federal law enforcement to take action to look into exactly how Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler allowed the situation to get so out of hand. Wheeler has since issued a statement about the city’s response.
And Ted Cruz isn’t the only person to call on an investigation of Portland. Richard Grenell has done the same asking the Department of Justice to step in to investigate.
“I have asked
@TheJusticeDept to investigate this incident in Portland. I can’t just sit by and watch my friend be brutally attacked.” – @RichardGrenell

Also from The Daily Wire,
The video shows members of Antifa punching and kicking Ngo, while others throw milkshakes and shoot him with silly string. Ngo does not fight back, but another man does try to defend him. Ngo then walks away from the group but is followed. Another member of Antifa — which ironically stands for “anti-fascist” — pelts him with a milkshake while others film and taunt the journalist. One woman in the crowd can be heard yelling, “F*** you, Andy!”
After the attack, Ngo posted a video to Periscope that showed him covered in milkshake with cuts and bruises on his face and around his eyes. He reiterated that no police officers helped defend him during the attack, but paramedics tended to his wounds after.

This was no means the first time they’ve attacked Andy Ngo, nor is it the first time they’ve attacked a person.
There have been numerous accounts of severe violence from Antifa thugs.
Adam verified that the pix @Rambobiggs posted of his bloddy, gashed head are him at the ER. His CT scan was thankfully clear. Adam ended up with a total of 25 stitches.https://t.co/klqkruauVH /e pic.twitter.com/t5eqqfIK2M

The group also has a “milkshake” recipe they throw at others.
The concoction is a mixture of soymilk, Quick Rete cement mix, and chemical additives to cause long term injury and burns.
“Prior to the event, information was circulating that some participants planned to throw milkshakes on others. As the event progressed, officers learned from some participants that a substance similar to quick drying concrete was being added to some of the ‘milkshakes,” said a press release from the Portland police.
