Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza slammed the city of Portland on Wednesday for their false advertisement in The New York Times and other outlets, which attempted to repair their image and attract tourists after a year that included 120 consecutive nights of rioting and destruction.
"There's nothing funny about what's been going on in Portland over the past year. Incessant rioting, incessant arsons, occupations, burnings, even murders," D'Souza said. "All for this, with the sort of tolerance or look the other way attitude of the Portland establishment [the democratic establishment] I hardly need to add."
D'Souza expressed that Portland is facing many problems which led to them placing the add in The New York Times and mentioned the recent resignation of the entire Portland Police Rapid Response Team due to civil unrest in the city, as well as, the enablement from elected officials.
"Portland does have to divert attention from it’s problems," D'Souza added. "And the fact that it's becoming and has become one of the most unlivable cities in America, literally a horrible place, I'm sure there are all kinds of people in Portland looking to get out of there."
“Think about this,” he continued. "The city is taking a full-page ad to promote itself and basically go, "It's all okay guys. Come to Portland!"
D’Souza went on to mock the ad and provided a hilarious, yet accurate, rendition of the city's cringe ad in The New York Times.
"This ad is so dishonest from start to finish that I’ve had to write my own ad," The host of the Dinesh D'Souza podcast announced.
"This is the real Portland. This is what they really should have put in The New York Times," he said. "What they did is false advertising."
D'Souza's rendition of the advertisement read:
"My name is Austin. I live in my moms basement. I've been living here for seven years. I don't want to have a job. I'm very lonely. My mom doesn't like me. In fact, her nickname from me is Austin, the weirdo. Every now and then though I come out. I go, mom, where's my Halloween costume? I got to go fight Nazis. Now, to be honest, I've never met a Nazi. Nazis are bad, but I also think Republicans are bad. And therefore, I look at Republicans as Nazis."
"Now, I like Portland because they let me stop traffic. They let me jump on police cars. I like setting fire to stuff, I’ve been doing this since I was a kid. This is part of the reason that my mom would come and smack me across the face. But the police don't do that. The police let me burn cars."
"That's why I love Portland in Portland," D'souza said mocking Portland's advertisement. "I can be myself. Now, some will call it BS of a civilization, but for me, Austin, the weirdo, I like a place where this is okay and this is why I like Portland."
