In Seattle, anarchists did their normal “riot” act, and property was damaged (windows smashed with metal bars), and 14 people were arrested, and 8 police officers injured. Local law enforcement is unable to stop this, because they are held back by city government which is basically in sympathy with the “demonstrators”-scare quotes necessary, as they are not demonstrating, but rioting. Below, please find the effects of the communists whom the leftists in Seattle idolize. Hat tip to Evan Pokroy for finding this on Wikipedia.
