‘Antifa Mayor’ Says of Rioters Attempting to Murder Cops: ‘I Understand Why They’re Angry’

Sarah Iannarone, the self-described “Antifa” candidate interviewed with KGW Channel 8 Straight Talk host Laural Porter and although Porter gave Iannarone many chances to condemn the violence in Portland, she refused to do so even once. Porter even gave her a chance to agree with the protests but condemn the violence.

I actually pity the voters in Portland even though I usually just figure they get the government they vote for. But, this year it’s ridiculous. They have a choice between a mayor that lets Antifa commit as much violence as they want or a candidate who encourages the violence. Six of one and a half a dozen of the other.

Iannarone is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). When Porter ran off a list of violence perpetrated by Antifa and noted that in many cases the victims are Black, Iannarone gave a really inane answer:

“They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I would have to go back prior to this uprising to work on the issues that are causing these folks to be angry in the streets, working on police accountability. And so I know that nobody controls a social movement, and the mayor really isn’t the person to quell popular protests.”

Porter then asked what should be an easy question, “But what about the criminal activity we’re seeing? Do you denounce that part of it?” To which Iannarone answered, “I understand why they’re angry.”

Porter tried again:

“But lighting fires with people inside the building? Would you denounce that part of it with lighting fires, arson with people inside buildings?” 

Iannarone: “I’m not the person setting the fires, I’m not the person doing the graffiti, I’m not here to tell people how to protest.”

So, what is she actually saying here is that rioting is none of the mayor’s business and they should just keep out of it. If you live in Portland and you just want to remain safe, you have no one to vote for mayor.

From PJ Media

Yes, Iannarone dismissed the arson attacks that even Mayor Ted Wheeler — who had previously debased himself to defend the rioters — described as “attempted murder” as nothing more than “petty vandalism.” Antifa rioters in Portland have fired commercial-grade fireworks at police officers, shone lasers in their eyes to blind them, and attempted to barricade them in burning buildings, but this Antifa candidate says all that is just “petty vandalism.”

    Then she should understand when We the People come to blow her fucking head off for treason. What else could she expect to happen when the police are defunded?
    -Even the federal officers won’t go to Portland. She is defenseless.
    She better watch her mouth, or start running, because tyrants like her are exactly why we own guns, and why we have the 2nd amendment.
