BLM achieves justice in Seattle: First black police chief resigns

This is liberal logic for ‘ya.

Soon to be former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best

Carmen Best has been the Chief of Seattle Police since 2018.

She’s been through the trenches lately with the CHAZ/CHOP fiasco in Seattle (where two people were shot and killed and BLM/Antifa thugs took over public city streets). Agitators also showed up in her neighborhood to harass her.

Yesterday the Seattle City Council approved historic cuts to the Seattle Police Department. This included a $100,000 paycut for Chief Best.

Carmen Best is considered one of the more reasonable folk left in Seattle. And now she’s out. Read her resignation statement here.

Seattle citizens DESERVE what they vote for. Chief Best, not so much.

BLM/Antifa must be SO PROUD for driving out a women of color. Social justice achieved, indeed!

Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan defends Antifa occupation of 6 city blocks as ‘peaceful’ expression of ‘community’

Last weekend, Antifa — the radical left group whom the Obama administration  had identified as domestic terrorists four years ago — took over, barricaded and occupied six city blocks in the Capitol Hill region of Seattle, WA, and declared the territory as their “autonomous zone” — Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ).

Antifa then proceeded to act like the terrorists that they are by declaring local rapper Raz Simone as their first warlord, “defending” CHAZ with armed guards and homemade chemical weapons (chlorine gas), and terrorizing the hapless owners of businesses within those six blocks, demanding they pay for “security” and “protection” to the tune of, in one case, as much as $500.

President Trump immediately issued a warning to Demonrat Washington governor Jay Inslee and Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan that if they did nothing, he will stop the occupation — a warning that Inslee and Durkan blithely ignored.

It gets worse.

Cristina Laila reports for The Gateway Pundit that instead of dispatching the police or calling the National Guard to dispel the Antifa occupiers, Mayor Durkan, 62, is coddling the occupiers.

Denouncing calling Antifa “terrorists,” Durkan declared her solidarity with the occupiers, insisting that their takeover and occupation of six city blocks to be a “lawful,” constitutional (“first amendment”) and “peace[ful]” “self-expression” of “patriotism,” “free speech” and “community”.

Durkan even oh so thoughtfully provided the terrorist occupiers with port-a-potties.

Durkan also directly defies President Trump’s authority by declaring she will not “allow” the military into Seattle to dispel the occupiers.

The next move is yours, President Trump.

If you do nothing to stop this, this will be the beginning of civil war and the long-predicted break up of the no-longer United States of America.

Antifa terrorists take over 6 blocks in Seattle as their ‘autonomous zone’

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.

Bloomberg’s C40 Cities group of mayors: Goal is to build a more “sustainable” and “fairer” society during Wuhan virus recovery

On Thursday Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted the following:

“I am proud to be part of @c40cities and to serve on the #COVID19 recovery task force. We know that it is going to take all of us working together to keep our residents healthy, support our workers and businesses, and rebuild our economy better than before.”

She included this tweet from something called C40 Cities:

“Today, C40 mayors released a statement of principles
to build a better, more sustainable and fairer society out of the recovery from the #COVID19 crisis
. https://bit.ly/COVIDTaskForce”

The Twitter bio of C40 Cities: C40 connects 96 of the world’s leading cities taking bold climate action to build #TheFutureWeWant. Their Twitter page brags of #InThisTogether.

What is C40 Cities (known as C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group)? From Wikipedia:

“The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group is a group of 96 cities around the world that represents one twelfth of the world’s population and one quarter of the global economy. Created and led by cities, C40 is focused on tackling climate change and driving urban action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, while increasing the health, wellbeing and economic opportunities of urban citizens.

As of 2019, Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti serves as the C40’s Chairperson, former Mayor of New York City Michael R. Bloomberg as President of the Board, and Mark Watts as Executive Director. All three work closely with the 13-member Steering Committee, the Board of Directors and professional staff. The rotating Steering Committee of C40 mayors provides strategic direction and governance. Steering Committee members include: Amman, Boston, Copenhagen, Durban, Hong Kong, Jakarta, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Milan, Paris, Seoul, and Tokyo.”

Which mayors have formally endorsed the Statement of Principles by the Global Mayors COVID-19 Recovery Task Force? The expected libtard suspects: Stephen Adler (Austin), Bill de Blasio (NYC), London Breed (San Francisco), Jenny Durkan (Seattle), Sadiq Khan (London), Lori Lighfoot (Chiraq), Martin Walsh (Boston), and Ted Wheeler (Portland).

The task force’s web page includes the following standard progressive talking points: equitable, sustainable, fairer, social equity, etc.

It is clear that the harm caused by COVID-19 has not been equitable. We, as leaders of major cities across the globe, are clear that our ambition should not be a return to ‘normal’ – our goal is to build a better, more sustainable, more resilient and fairer society out of the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

The recovery, above all, must be guided by an adherence to public health and scientific expertise, in order to assure the safety of those who live in our cities.

The recovery must address issues of equity that have been laid bare by the impact of the crisis – for example, workers who are now recognised as essential should be celebrated and compensated accordingly and policies must support people living in informal settlements.

Climate action can help accelerate economic recovery and enhance social equity, through the use of new technologies and the creation of new industries and new jobs. These will drive wider benefits for our residents, workers, students, businesses and visitors.”

As with most progressive tactics, their goal (transfer of wealth via equity) is never aligned with the real issue (economic recovery). Never let this Wuhan virus crisis go to waste.

Seattle Mayor Durkan: President Trump should “spend a little more time learning from cities like Seattle”

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan

President Trump has threatened to send illegal aliens to sanctuary cities.

Sounds like Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is more than happy to accept them. In fact, she’s trying to convince her followers that she’s shown such great leadership that Seattle is more than capable of handling the illegal aliens they want to protect.

Apparently because she has solved all the city’s problems.

Here’s the proof:

From Mayor Durkan’s Twitter timeline:

Instead of threatening immigrant families and the cities that welcome them, this president should spend a little more time learning from cities like Seattle. @TIME

Retweet of Mayor Eric Garcetti‏: “L.A. isn’t afraid either!”

Retweet of Meet the Press: “WATCH: Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) responds to President Trump’s threats to transport immigrants to sanctuary cities. #MTP @JayInslee: “You can’t threaten somebody with something they’re not afraid of. And we are not afraid of diversity in the state of Washington.”

If you read through the good mayor’s Twitter responses, you’ll find there are less than 1% positive responses to her Tweets. Example replies to her include the following:

This mayor is a state embarrassment and a clown. Only wakes up when its time to get on camera. The mayor is equally worthelss and a disgrace. Inslee has as much chance as me being Pope. And my odds are better.”

“Hey here’s an idea. Stop worrying about @realDonaldTrump and fix our shithole homeless issue in #seattle and #Washington @MayorJenny @JayInslee are the worst. One talks out of both sides of his mouth, the other is just full of shits. #politics”

“They won’t find housing but we’ve decided tents in cities streets are acceptable and the garbage left for tax payers look at. Get it together!”

“Make Tent Cities Great Again”

“Again, stop with the political posturing. Your ran a campaign on fixing Seattle’s homeless problem. You haven’t done shit. Fix our city, then worry about @realDonaldTrump #seattle deserves better”

“Are you serious? Take a look around our once beautiful city. A huge mess!!!

“It isn’t “your city”. It’s the citizens city and they are over your lack of leader ship and what you’ve done to destroy What was once a beautiful place to live.”

“Learn what….how to destroy a city? You and your liberal friends and this disgusting governor @JayInslee have ruined it. He pushed the homeless in Olympia into the neighborhoods and you’ve continued the path of destruction for a once great city. Shut up!”

Elections have consequences, Seattle! Sure sucks to be you right now…
