Just like fellow socialist Bernie Sanders, Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant is a hypocrite. Here’s her latest screed on capitalism:
We need to continue building a powerful movement to end gentrification, to fully fund public schools & decent jobs.
Capitalism *is* a police state. While we'll have to fight to win reforms, we have to dismantle capitalism to win a violence-free society.https://t.co/xvAQs67GGn

The womyn who hates capitalism? She’s has a net worth nearly half a million. According to a story from The Stranger in October 2019:
“Council Member Kshama Sawant estimates her net worth at $490,000 and list an income from both her city council position and as a political organizer for Socialist Alternative, her political party, which pays her between $10,000 and $25,000 a year. Sawant owns a home worth between $200,000 and a million dollars and is married to Calvin Priest, who works for an organization called 15 Now.
Sawant said she would only take $40,000 of the salary and donate the rest, but came under fire after the blog SCC Insight reported that she donated portions of her salary to Socialist Alternative and 15 Now, the two organizations that her family gets an income from.”
For a womyn who sure seems to despise capitalism, it’s made her wealthy. Hypocrite.
