Portland Asshole Now Threatening Food Stamp Recipients with Flyer

The anonymous Portland coward who last month went around threatening to publicly post the names of local voters who received governmental disability benefits is now doing the same to people who receive food stamps.

The Huffington Post reports that flyers very similar to those distributed in the middle of the night in several Portland neighborhoods in August are turning up again this week, with almost identical language:

"There are twenty seven people in this neighborhood who vote and receive food stamps," said a flier distributed Monday, according to local TV station KPTV. "The names of these people are being posted where they can be seen by taxpayers and the neighborhood can decide who is truly in need of food."

Like with the previous flyer campaign, which you can read about below, the new flyers are signed "Artemis of the wildland." Food stamp recipient names are not public records, meaning that to obtain them one must have access to U.S. Department of Agriculture internal files. No names have actually been posted thus far.

Portland Asshole Threatens Disabled Voters with Anonymous Flyer

Portland Asshole Threatens Disabled Voters with Anonymous Flyer

With all of the Portlandia-style hipster jokes emanating from the Pacific Northwest, it's easy to forget that the region is lousy with far-right lunatics. Case in point: A flyer being distributed around Portland neighborhoods threatening to post the names of people who receive government disability benefits.

The flyer, pictured above, was recently left on up to 75 people's porches or doors in 14 neighborhoods around Portland, according to the Oregonian. The note's creator—known only as "Artemis of the wildland"—claims he or she intends to publicly post the identities of voters on disability so that they "can be seen by taxpayers and the neighborhood can decide who is truly disabled." The number of disabled voters varied from neighborhood to neighborhood, from nine people to 23. The flyer eventually goes on to—of course—misattribute a quote about the impending death of America to Benjamin Franklin.

Artemis of the wildland has yet to make good on his or her promise to release the names of disabled voters, probably because people who sneak around in the dead of night to anonymously spout off their hateful political beliefs are liars, cowards, trolls, or all three.
