This Fox News Web Site story today is just priceless. The Mayor, white, homosexual, female Jenny Durkan, has been “demanded” to resign by avowed Socialist City Council-creature Kshama Sawant. Yeah, as if Durkan takes orders from the Clowncil! Sawant let demonstrators into City Hall, because in her view it “belongs to the people”.
“Protesters” Storm City Hall! Those same protesters took over the Seattle East Precinct, making a 6-block “police-free zone”.
And now this, from MyNorthwest.com. It seems that the so-called “demonstrators” on Capitol Hill (above) are armed, and now establishing checkpoints around the neighborhood, and attempting to extract “protection money” from local businesses. How is this helpful? With no police, this is what you get.
Here are some quotes from another article on the KOMO Web site, about the “protester-occupied Autonomous Zone” near the Seattle Police East Precinct on Capitol Hill.
After Seattle police boarded up and abandoned the east precinct, a story started to spread that protesters with guns had broken in and were occupying the building. This is false. [emphasis mine]
Now, just think about the bolded statement above. The Seattle Police have abandoned their precinct station, and basically surrendered to the Occupying Force of Protesters. What, exactly, does this say about the Police of the City of Seattle, whose job it is to protect the citizens of the city. This is appalling! In my opinion, this reflects the known fact that the city government of Seattle does not support its police force, and has not done for many years. They are the descendants of 1960s radicals who think of police as “pigs”.
However, armed citizens are patrolling the streets around the police station. It’s also true that rifle-toting citizens have set up checkpoints and may be restricting who goes in and out.
Does this sound like a revolution to you? An entire neighborhood of the city patrolled by armed “citizens” who probably do not live in that neighborhood.
And the truth actually gets even worse.
“We have heard anecdotally reports of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area,” Nollette said. “This is the crime of extortion.”
“The collective believes in the diversity of tactics,” said protest organizer Dae Shik Kim Hawkins, Jr. “I think a lot of different coalitions and efforts are trying to achieve a very similar goal.”
Police said they are reaching out to these leaders so they can move back into the east precinct without inciting more civil unrest.
What does this sound like to you? To me, it sounds like, again, the Police have surrendered to the Protesters, and have to ask their permission to move back into their precinct house! The Protesters’ Goal is a Police-free city.
Hey, “protesters” and “demonstrators” in Seattle. Be very careful what you wish for, you might just get it. I wonder how criminal gangs and drug-pushers feel about Leftist wimps who pull the police from the streets in favor of social workers? We may be about to find out.
