A glimpse into how progressive Seattle politicians treat their constituents

From the video description:

“Seattle City Council Meeting during public comment period. All Council Members paying attention to their phone and not speakers. Speaker rudely treated by Council Member Juerez when he asked if the Members could show proper respect.”

The constituent, Richard Schwartz, had this to say about his experience with the Seattle City Council:

Schwartz made what appeared to be polite attempt to get members of the city council to pay attention, but they simply stared at their phones and ignored him, with councilwoman Debora Juarez speaking merely to remind him of his remaining time and scold him for apparently wasting it.

“When I got up there intending to speak on that, I saw the tops of their heads, and I’ve been to a few of these meetings as well, and that’s the way it always is,” Schwartz said. “I thought this is was another example of what I came to talk about, so maybe I’ll mention it. So I just asked very politely I thought, if they could look up and give me their attention for my two minutes of time.”

“My point was: You set aside 20 minutes out of the week supposedly for public comment, and I just don’t understand why during those 20 minutes you can’t detach from the other things you might be doing — and I understand they have a lot of things they’re doing — and just give citizens their attention for 20 minutes out of the week.”

These councilmembers are rude and it appears they have utter contempt for this constituent. With leadership like this, it’s not a surprise that “Seattle is Dying.”

It only makes sense when you realize that they don’t work for us.

This gentleman nailed it. They are beyond rude, they’re deranged. Several years ago, a Seattle city council woman used the story of her abortion in her campaign and afterward for publicity.

Any wonder why Seattle is so messed up? And these jerks get paid for being elected aholes! I guess the fact that the guy was white and male he had two strikes against him from the get go.
Bunch of wankers! I hope that this gets played when these clowns are up for re-election.
The morons were probably texting, “Ha ha, yeah I’m at work and doing nothing at all!”

The City Council feels their power, are arrogant and totally rude. In their twisted minds, they are above citizens as it shows!

There were two speakers before Richard Schwartz. I think it’s important to start trying to understand this by first watching those two speakers. The first one was ejected from the meeting. The council head Debora Juarez loudly demanded cameras and his mic be turned off him as he was so nasty, calling them all criminals, etc. The other was very hard to listen to as he ranted and raged, making accusations, rambling references to statistics, but he did not go past that point of civility. He spoke freely. When Richard Schwartz started they probably though they were going to have… Read more »

Offensively polite (patronizing) stuck-up bureaucrats. Don’t listen, don’t care, etc.
