Dear Letters Editor:
Long time liberal Manhattan Congressmember Jerry Nadler and Democratic House Judiciary Chairperson believes that ongoing violence in Portland, Oregon committed by Antifa is a myth.  Has he spent too much time in the alternate universe known as Capital Hill Washington?   He reminds me of the famous three monkeys — Hear No Evil, See No Evil, and Speak No Evil. How can anyone, a liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, young or old be in denial about two months’ worth of nightly demonstrations, which frequently turned into chaos or riots.  How many times have we seen or read about attacks on public buildings and private businesses, looting, arson, and physical assault on law enforcement officials?  Previous generations who engaged in peaceful protest would never dream of doing these things.  Clearly, Congressmember Nadler along with many other members from both chambers of Congress needs to take a cognitive memory test.  I hope Congressmember Nadle is not suffering from the early onset of Alzheimers.
