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.”

Washington State teacher kicks 10-year-old out of online class for admiring President Trump

I guess one good thing that has come from remote learning is parents can see what some teachers are ACTUALLY doing to their kids.

The real story: It’s not just a few big Democrat cities that are burning

Demorats have generally ignored rioting in the streets and have suggested that President Trump is the cause of any social disruption. Mainstream media have suggested that the rioting is confined to half a dozen big cities. Republicans have blamed Demorat mayors and governors for not bringing the riots under control.

But fact is, none of us are getting the true picture of what is happening to this country. Protests and riots have occurred in all 50 states. The Army National Guard has been deployed to at least 23 states and the District of Columbia to combat rioters and looters. More than 350 cities and towns have been wracked with unrest—all this while left-wing socialist/communist government officials sit in complacent approval of the mayhem.

Our country is coming apart at the seams. Nero fiddles while Rome burns.

What follows is research published on June 2, 2020 by Mohammed Haddad, writing for Aljazeera. These data are more than two months old.

I have to wonder, how much worse is it now?

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.

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 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!

Wuhan virus being used as political warfare? Double standards prove it

You don’t think the Wuhan virus is being used as a political tool to hurt #OrangeManBad this November? Here’s the double standards that prove it is a prolonged, political warfare:

“Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration on Friday urged additional vigilance by local officials in 11 counties where there are upticks in COVID-19 cases”

“Mayor Lori Lightfoot breaks her own rules to get a haircut

“Democrat Gov. Pritzker’s Wife and Kids Caught Visiting Florida While He Orders Illinois To Stay-at-Home

“Gov. Inslee extends pause indefinitely for phased reopening

20,000 People Protest In Hollywood, Smaller Groups March Throughout LA And Orange Counties”

West Hollywood protest/CBS photo

Indeed, how much longer are us Americans going to allow these double standards to exist? Remember this November that elections do have consequences.

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?
