Far-left Antifa extremists have reportedly returned to the streets of Portland, Oregon, even as Mayor Ted Wheeler has meanwhile been focused on being a feminist …

Late Friday evening and early Saturday morning, the extremists reportedly showed up in downtown Portland to once again stir up trouble like they’ve done countless times ever since the death of George Floyd in May of 2020.

Video footage from their latest riot showed them blocking streets, burning an American flag, starting a fire in the middle of the road and even reportedly trying to set Portland City Hall on fire as well.

For reasons that remain unclear, Wheeler chose to completely ignore the riots.

In tweets posted Saturday afternoon, the mayor instead proudly proclaimed his proud desire to “work to be a feminist” and announced a “Women’s March to mobilize and defend reproductive rights.”

Look:

All three tweets were quickly ratioed by two separate camps of people.

One camp of raging leftists shrieked at Wheeler for the supposed crime of allowing local cops to use teargas on Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters.

As far as Portland’s leftists are concerned, rioting left-wing extremists have the “right” to vandalize, start fires, harass bystanders and attack innocent people. Cops meanwhile have the “right” to shut up and preferably die, in their opinion.

It’s like they think the bad guys are the good guys, and the good guys are the bad guys.

The second camp of critics came at him from a different angle.

Their complaints included the correct observation that the nationwide marches Saturday were on behalf of abortion, not women, and the fact that he’s allowed the city to turn into a crime-ridden hellhole.

Look:

Because Portland is a radically far-left city, there weren’t as many Twitter users in the second camp as they were in the first camp.

Dovetailing back to the footage from late Friday and early Saturday, you may have noticed that the tweets often contained the hashtag #robertdelgado. This hashtag references a criminal deviant who was justifiably fatally shot by the police in Lents Park last April.

“East Precinct Officer Zachary DeLong shot and killed Delgado on April 16 after he responded to the park on a 911 call. The caller reported a man with a gun at the park doing quick-draws but not pointing the gun at anyone, according to police,” The Oregonian reported in September.

“Video recorded by a witness and presented to the grand jury showed DeLong and another officer standing behind trees, about 90 feet from Delgado, instructing him to put his hands up and get down on the ground, according to police and the District Attorney’s Office.”

Delgado refused to comply and instead pulled out what looked like a gun and pointed it at the officers, prompting them to open fire.

It was later discovered that he’d been holding a replica handgun. Still, given his aggressive behavior and lack of cooperation, a grand jury ruled last month that there’d been “no criminal wrongdoing” committed by the police.

Nevertheless, according to the Antifa extremists in Portland, Delgado is a victim who “deserves justice,”  because as previously noted, leftists in the far-left “utopia” think the bad guys are the good guys, and the good guys are the bad guys.
