Fearmongering: Seattle mayor says visiting family during Thanksgiving could mean visiting them in the ICU at Christmas

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has a frightening message for y’all up north:

Apparently Seattle – and the whole state – is seeing an alarming number of Wuhan virus cases. How bad are the numbers? Let’s take a look, shall we?

As of 11/21/20:

Note that the above numbers are cumulative.

Washington State has a population of 7.6 million people. Total cumulative confirmed cases of Wuhan virus: 141,260. Total hospitalizations: 9,765. Total deaths: 2,619.

You do the math.

Note that on the state’s Wuahn data dashboard, for hospitalizations they state the following: “COVID-19 in Washington State: COVID-like Illness Hospitalizations: COVID-like illness hospitalizations (CLI) are not exact counts of people hospitalized with a COVID diagnosis. Since these data do not rely on a diagnosis, they provide near-real time trends of the outbreak.

Funny how Mayor Durkan wasn’t so concerned with “flattening the curve” during the “summer of love.”

Remember these large, “mostly peaceful” protests?

One thing I learned having grown up and lived in demorat-controlled Washington state for over forty years, the masses will never understand this one simple and obvious lesson:

Seattle’s “The Stranger” says our childish obsession with seeing family is going to kill in record numbers

“The Stranger,” a progressive Seattle blog, made quite the claim the other day:

They went on to note that you can quit pretending to enjoy your grandma’s cooking:

Do you think The Stranger was this concerned for the citizens of Seattle when this was happening this past summer?

Typical hypocritical demorats.

The definition of insanity: Majority of Seattle voters unhappy with direction of city & city council

You CANNOT fix STOOPID.

Seattle has been a sh*thole city for quite some time now. Remember the CHAZ fiasco under the direction of Mayor Jenny Durkan this past summer?

I’ve covered the many, many, MANY failures of Seattle’s demorat leadership for years. See the following examples:

BLM achieves justice in Seattle: First black police chief resigns
Man who dropped out of Seattle City Council race last year exposes city & allies’ coordinated efforts to mislead the public on their homelessness crisis
Seattle has a solution to their homelessness crisis: A 75-person task force
King County judge on why repeat offenders get no punishment: “We’re just talking about property crime
Violent repeat offender in Seattle assaults toddler with coffee, two days after his jail release

Yet Seattleites KEEP electing demorats while, I guess, expecting a different outcome?

Turns out some Seattle folk are unhappy with the direction of the city! Gee, I wonder why???

Excerpts from KIRO 7 News:

A new survey of Seattle voters found that many are unhappy with how the City Council is handling things and the direction of the city, according to EMC Research.

After polling voters in late October, researchers found 54% of voters think things in Seattle “have gotten pretty seriously off on the wrong track.” A third of voters (35%) think things are “generally going in the right direction.”

In an open-ended question with no response options, 45% of voters mentioned homelessness as the issue they are most concerned about, followed by affordable housing/cost of living and police brutality/defunding the police.

Three-quarters of voters polled said they are unhappy about the growth of illegal homeless camps in many Seattle neighborhoods, city parks and playgrounds and a majority don’t agree with the council ending most encampment cleanups.

I’m fresh outta any empathy for people in Seattle. Demorats will NEVER learn this one EASY lesson:

The city of Seattle has found a new class of victims: Volunteers!

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced yesterday that the city is getting ready to address “systemic racism.”

It’s going to cost the taxpayers only $100 MILLION. Yet given Seattle’s hi$tory with trying to solve their homelessness problem, you know that amount will go up.

The press release is a word salad of progressive lingo: Deep disparities, systemic racism, institutionalized oppression, racial reckoning, climate justice, sustained investments, culturally competent prevention, school to prison pipeline, and so on.

Excerpts from the mayor’s press release:

“The City of Seattle announced today the initial membership of the Equitable Communities Initiative Task Force, which will spearhead a community-led process to develop recommendations for a historic $100 million new investment in Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities to address the deep disparities caused by systemic racism and institutionalized oppression. The $100 million investment builds on additional city investments and programs.

“Today, Seattle takes a significant step to recognize and address the generational impacts of systemic racism in our country and city and to build a more just and equitable city for the generations to come. History has placed us in a time of a worsening pandemic, an economic crisis, and a racial reckoning. Still, these unprecedented challenges also impose a moral obligation to act now to create healthy, just, and resilient communities for our Black and Indigenous neighbors and all communities of color,” said Mayor Jenny A. Durkan.

A diverse group of POC community leaders with deep connections and representing a cross-section of industries including economic development, labor, food justice, education, health care, homelessness, climate justice, are longtime community leaders. The task force will determine the scope of their work and lead all community engagement.

The task force will engage with the broader community to prioritize focus areas for investment and make funding recommendations for sustained investments and improved outcomes. Those areas may include educational and economic opportunity, community wealth building, community wellness, and the Green New Deal.”

Read the whole press release here.

Toward the end of this press release, I found that Seattle has identified another victim group: Volunteers!

The last paragraph of the announcement:

Recognizing that communities of color have often been abused by volunteerism – lending considerable time and expertise to correct systemic problems while not being paid – the City has set aside funds to ensure members are compensated and do not face financial hardship due to participation.

When one signs up to volunteer you expect that there will be no financial compensation; you do it out out of the goodness of your heart. And it’s also done of your own free will.

But of course, progressives find ANOTHER class of victims due to “systemic racism and institutionalized oppression.”

Seattle: BLM mob demands White people move out of neighborhood & give their homes to black people

The demorat leaders of blue cities have allowed BLM to riot, loot and destroy their communities.

In Seattle, the BLM mob is now brazen enough to demand people surrend their homes to them in the name of justice, or something. In their words, “We’re bringing it to your front f-cking door.”

Here’s what happened in Seattle the other night:

Kitty Shackleford has several more videos on their Twitter timeline. See them here.

The BLM mob knows they can get away with this. Just look how easy it was for protestors to take over a portion of Seattle and create CHAZ/CHOP. There are NO consequences for their actions when demorats are in charge.

Remember in November.

Seattle City Council readies bill to abolish police but hey, you can get the library to read you a story!

PRIORITIES. LEFTIST priorities.

Seattle Police? BAD. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST. WHITE SUPREMACISTS. Must be gone.

The Seattle City Council knows exactly who is best to respond to your immediate, critical needs. The NY Post reports:

“Under the bill, cops would be replaced by “community-led activities” and organizations focused on “housing, food security, and other basic needs” along with “culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections,” according to documents posted by Christopher Rufo, Director of Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth & Poverty.

To gain police department funding, groups must show they are “well-versed in de-escalation skills” along with “trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis” and are “committed to hiring staff from the communities they serve,” according to the proposal.”

But hey, don’t worry if you can’t get an armed police officer to assist you during a rape or violent beat down. The libraries are still closed due to Wuhan virus political warfare, yet you can call Seattle Public library (SPL) and listen to a taxpayer-funded employee read a story. That’s because there’s $86 MILLION taxpayer dollars funding the library.

In a crisis, you can just call the SPL Lit Line for a little comfort!

“This phone service is designed to help library patrons with limited technology access stay connected to literature, local history, and their library while they are unable to visit us in person. Simply call 206-386-4656 and listen to a recording of a story, article or poem. “

I realize that the Seattle Council isn’t suggesting you call the library instead of the police they want to abolish yet…you never know with these crazy leftists. It could just be one part of their progressive solutions!

You don’t say: Residents fleeing liberal utopia of Seattle

The once-beautiful, demorat-run city of Seattle has turned into a nightmare.

You’ve got a serious homeless problem. Even a BILLION taxpayer dollars isn’t enough to solve that problem.

You’ve got a serious problem with repeat criminal offenders. Due to the progressive “criminal justice reform” agenda, there are many, many repeat offenders who are never properly punished.

Then you’ve got ANTIFA/BLM/demorat thugs taking over the city streets and rioting, looting and burning the city down. And the elected politicians cave to their demands.

So why would any reasonable, taxpaying-citizen want to remain in this liberal utopia? It appears that many residents have had enough and are heading out.

KOMO News reports that more Seattle-area residents selling their homes and fleeing the city. This is based on a Redfin report which states that the number of home sellers looking to leave the Seattle metro area has jumped to 13.7%, compared with 11.2% at the same time last year.

Also notable? The net outflow of homeowners from Seattle has soared from 363 in the second quarter of last year to 6,007 in the second quarter of this year – a jump of more than 1,500%.

Redfin claims that the reasons people are leaving are because of the Wuhan virus, to move closer to family, flexible remote work which means people don’t “have to live in this area,” and low mortgage rates.

Gee, ‘ya think the crazy violence and lack of law and order might have something to do with it?

Seattle to “transform” police department & “re-imagine” community safety; Seven people injured in two shootings after announcement

SHOT:

On Sunday night Mayor Durkan announced a plan to transform Seattle Police and “reimagine” community safety.

From Durkan’s announcement:

“Mayor Jenny A. Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best have been conducting a thorough review of the Seattle Police Department’s (SPD) budget and the impacts budget reductions would have on services to the residents and businesses of Seattle. On June 18, the Mayor and Chief asked SPD leadership and the City Budget Office to comprehensively analyze the department’s current services. Based off that analysis, the Mayor and Chief today announced early actions to transfer programs and functions currently within SPD out of the department and identified some preliminary reductions to the 2021 budget. In total, these early steps would lead to a $76 million reduction in SPD’s budget for 2021.

“Chief Best and I believe we can build a new model for community safety in Seattle by reimagining our approach to policing and investing deeply in community,” said Mayor Durkan.

“The Seattle Police Department has been very clear – we are committed to a community-led re-envisioning of what community safety should be,” said Chief of Police Carmen Best.”

CHASER:

Good luck, Seattle, You’re going to need it.
