Opinion on Nadler

November 5, 2020 Updated: November 5, 2020

Long-time liberal Manhattan Congressmember and Democratic House Judiciary Chairperson Jerry Nadler believes that the ongoing violence in Portland, Oregon, committed by Antifa is a myth. Has he spent too much time in the alternate universe known as Capitol Hill in Washington? He reminds me of the famous three monkeys—Hear No Evil, See No Evil, and Speak No Evil. How can anyone, 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.
