The City of Seattle is lost. The City is no longer controlled by its elected officials, no matter how Left and Socialist they are. The City government, and many private businesses surrendered to Antifa and the Black Lives Matter terror groups [I define them both as terror groups due to their methods, including arson, looting, vandalism, and illegal “occupation” of public rights-of-way]. The Police Chief of Seattle negotiates with the so-called “protestors”, thus granting them status. And no one thinks anything of it.
Here are some reasons why Seattle is lost.
Seattle City Council OKs ban of “crowd control weapons”.
Capitol Hill Trader Joe’s store closed indefinitely following Black Lives Matter protests.
Visitors go to the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest Zone
From Wobblies to CHAZ, Seattle has a long history of protests.
CHAZ changes its name to CHOP to better reflect demonstrations’ message.
Thousands participate in Seattle Children’s March.
[ED: New stories today, June 16. It gets worse]
Seattle reaches agreement with occupiers. Agreement includes the Seattle Department of Transportation replacing wooden barriers with concrete ones! Seattle Government Agency is helping the terrorists occupy City territory. Seattle considers the “occupiers” to be the City’s equal. This is frankly disgusting. You don’t negotiate with terrorists, you rout them.
Seattle business owner near occupied zone detains robbery suspect, calls police. Police do not respond. Now we know who is more important in Seattle. And it isn’t the law-abiding business-owning taxpayers of the City.
Seattle City Council mulls bills repealing loitering crimes for drug offenders, sex workers. This speaks for itself. With no police to enforce the law, we simply repeal the law. Welcome to Lawless Seattle.
Yesterday, in the midst of the Riots (otherwise described as protests against the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis), that would have been Mayor Jenny Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best.
Today, on the other hand, responsibility for the Seattle Police Department has been handed over to: “SEATTLE POLICE-ACCOUNTABILITY GROUPS”. In a story titled:
Mayor Durkan Announces Temporary Ban on the use of tear gas by SPD at demonstrations
The Mayor and the Police Chief have deferred to so-called Police Accountability Groups in their policy of banning, for at least 30 days, police deployment of tear gas to break up huge crowds of rioters in Seattle. Hereafter, police policy will be made by groups not elected by the citizens of Seattle. Now, the anarchist group known as “Antifa” has vowed to take their brand of rioting, violence, and destruction to Seattle neighborhoods not in the downtown core. I am wondering tonight how the residents of Seattle are feeling about that. Funny, but nowhere in the KOMO article are the “police accountability groups” named.
In another story, too, the Martin Luther King County Labor Council has informed the Seattle Police Officers Guild that it needs to“become and anti-racist organization”, or “get out”.
The violent inmates of the Insane Asylum of Seattle have been handed the running of that former city in the Pacific Northwest. I feel sorry for the ordinary citizens of the city, who brought this upon themselves by electing their far-Left governments, over and over.
You did? This is what you voted for.
Antifa protesters outside the home of Tucker Carlson, a Fox News commentator.
Protesters outside the home of Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Mr. Pai has a wife and children, who were frightened by the angry people shouting outside their home. They had to go into hiding.
This is what Antifa promises people who do not agree with them.
This is who they are. These people are not supporters of conservatives.
Democrat supporters prefer mob rule. Anyone who disagrees with them is liable to have a mob on his front lawn, or outside his office, screaming and threatening violence.
If you voted Democrat on Tuesday, this whom you voted for. Be very careful out there. One wrong word to the wrong person could lead to these people forming up outside YOUR front door, demanding blood. Your livelihood may be threatened, your family might be in danger, if you get on the wrong side of the Liberal Mob.
