The top federal law enforcement officer in Oregon has had more than enough of the liberal media flying wingman for the violent rioters that have besieged Portland for more than two months.

U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams torched the media in a frank interview for refusing to call the violent riots that have rocked the city for over two months “criminal.”

Williams was asked to share his thoughts on whether the “late-night protests” (interesting choice of words, huh?) are “shadowing the overall message about Black Lives Matter” and “taking away from the fight for racial justice.” (Can you say “loaded question”?”

The top cop got straight to the (what should be) obvious point.

“These aren’t late night demonstrations. This is criminal activity. There’s a difference. What you have failed and the media have failed to distinguish, between, you seem unwilling to call people engaged in criminal conduct, as criminals, as opposed to lawful protesting. This is unlawful. And people, whether you’re an opportunist, an antagonist, an agitator, or an anarchist, call it out for what it is.”

Williams seemed to grow agitated as one of the two obviously-liberal interviewers refused to call the violent rioting “criminal,” one of them saying it was because she “hasn’t seen the police reports.” [Eye roll.]

“You’re using, ‘late night activity,’ it sounds like a party. It’s criminal. Look at the debris. We haven’t had a front door since July 3. That’s criminal, okay?

He returned to the point again, later in the interview.

“You’re choosing terms that sort of downplay the criminal activity and what I’m suggesting is if there is an honest accounting of what this is, that helps build the reality check for how this can stop. That’s my point.”

Not to rain on Williams’s parade, but using terms like “honest accounting” and “reality check” when discussing rioting anarchists or their apologists in the liberal media is wishful thinking at best; there is zero honesty or reality on the Radical Left — and no end in sight.

Unless they are stopped, that is.
