The assholes and retards passing for well-educated politicians in Portland named a bridge after someone to promote kindness in a crime riddled city.
Guess who it was?
Way to go, Portland! This is off the charts levels of idiocy!
I’m sure crime will drop for at least one day as criminals try to get up off the floor from laughing so hard.
A new pedestrian and bicycle bridge in Portland has been named “Ned Flanders Crossing” after the Simpsons character created by Portland native and the city’s Lincoln High School graduate Matt Groening, according to a report by KPTV.
Transportation Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, Springfield, Oregon Mayor Sean VanGordon, and Travel Portland CEO Jeff Miller unveiled the name of the bridge over Interstate 405 on Thursday.
The bridge — which opened to the public on June 4 — is reportedly the first official Simpsons-related Portland location named in honor of a character from the show.
The Ned Flanders Crossing bridge was originally named the Flanders Crossing but was changed to the full name of the character in hopes that it will encourage citizens to be nice to each other, according to a report by Daily Mail.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler reportedly claimed that Ned is a perfect example for the promotion of kindness in the city.
“Ned Flanders has been a quintessential emblem of good neighborliness for over 30 years, keeping his cool and trying his best to be a good neighbor even when confronted with his rather difficult neighbors, the Simpsons,” Wheeler said.
As of August, Portland suffered 56 homicides, which makes 2021 the city’s deadliest year since 1994, when a total of 55 people were killed, according to a report by US News and World Report.
