DHS Secretary Wolf Gives Media a Big Reality Check
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf gave the media a big reality check over their attempt to try and blame federal officers for the violence in Portland.
According to Town Hall:
Chad Wolf, the acting secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, gave a “reality check” to the mainstream media after they blamed the federal officers for the violence in Portland after they were sent to protect the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse from rioters.Advertisement
In the weeks since Oregon State Police took over the security for the courthouse, rioters have moved on and began to once again attack different Portland Police Bureau buildings in the city.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Wolf posted screenshots of different articles that blamed federal officers for the riots and highlights how he PPB has had to declare riots and unlawful assemblies almost every day since the agreement between DHS and the Oregon state government.
The articles were published by The Washington Post, TIME, and the Associated Press.
Reality Check: It’s been 10 days since the agreement between DHS and Oregon. During that time, @PortlandPolice has declared riots or unlawful assemblies 12 times.
