America has descended into rampant lawlessness.
On May 31, 2020, President Trump said he “will” declare Antifa to be terrorists.
Why the future tense?
Doesn’t Trump know that more than four years ago in April 2016, the Obama administration’s DHS/FBI already had identified Antifa as domestic terrorists?
Antifa are more than terrorists: they are taking over Seattle to set up their own territory.
Last weekend, Antifa took over six square blocks in the Capitol Hill region of the city of Seattle, WA, declaring the blocks to be an “autonomous zone” that belongs to Antifa.
Gateway Pundit reports that Antifa erected barricades around the border of six city blocks and asked “folks with firearms” to take shifts “defending” the barricades.
Antifa are also demanding the businesses within the zone to pay them for “security”. Yesterday, business owners reported threats by the Antifa thugs if they would not pay for their “security”.
Ian Miles Cheong, the managing editor of Human Events, tweeted this social media post by Marcus S., a Seattle business owner:
Emboldened by the inaction of Seattle’s mayor and police, the Antifa terrorists say they will expand the zone and invade police precincts. The Post Millennial reports:
Following the surrender of the East Precinct of the Seattle Police Department to an Antifa mob and the occupation of Seattle City Hall, a source on the ground in Seattle says that other police precincts around the city are preparing to be the next targets.
Regarding the autonomous zone established by the Antifa-led mob, the source—whose anonymity we are protecting—says, “They bar media from entering and screen people coming in. They are walking around fully armed. Talking about making their own currency and making their own flag. SPD is talking about abandoning the west precinct now.
“West precinct has the 911 call centre. This is just like the Occupy movement. Soon we will have feces and drugs everywhere and people getting assaulted and raped in the encampments.
According to Andy Ngo, the editor-at-large of The Post Millennial, who had battled Antifa thugs in Portland, OR, the Seattle Antifa have a sub-Reddit forum on which they are posting about making homemade chemical weapons (chlorine gas), how to maintain water supply, and how to use volunteers armed with guns to push police back.
Last night, President Trump warned Washington governor Jay Inslee and Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan — both Demonrats — that if they don’t immediately take back the city, he will.
