‘Defund the Police’ looks like ‘de facto war lords’

Seattle goes the way of Mogadishu

A pretext for class warfare

From the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal:

The City of Seattle made the decision to abandon the East Precinct and surrender the neighborhood to the protesters. “This is an exercise in trust and de-escalation,” explained Chief Carmen Best. Officers and National Guardsmen emptied out the facility, boarded it up, and retreated.

Seattle Times

Immediately afterward, Black Lives Matter protesters, Antifa black shirts, and armed members of the hard-Left John Brown Gun Club seized control of the neighborhood, moved the barricades into a defensive position, and declared it the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone …”

On the new rebel state’s first night, the atmosphere was festive and triumphant. Hooded men spray-painted the police station with slogans and anarchist symbols, renaming it the “Seattle People’s Department East Precinct.” Raz Simone, a local rapper with an AK-47 slung from his shoulder and a pistol attached to his hip, screamed, “This is war!” into a white-and-red megaphone and instructed armed paramilitaries to guard the barricades in shifts.

Later in the night, Simone was filmed allegedly assaulting multiple protestors who disobeyed his orders, informing them that he was the “police” now, sparking fears that he was becoming the de facto warlord of the autonomous zone. A homeless man with a baseball bat wandered along the borderline and two unofficial medics in medieval-style chain mail stood ready for action.

The Seattle City Council has already begun to champion the protesters’ demands. Socialist Alternative councilwoman Kshama Sawant declared the takeover a “victory” against “the militarized police force of the political establishment and the capitalist state.”


“The more we encourage and focus on the race thing, the greater our attention is not focusing on the fact that this is class warfare,” said a 28-year-old protester and self-described anarchist. — New York Times

    Well it is time to surround the fences, let no one in or out and if they want to surrender put them federal custody, identify, fingerprint and dna test them and charge them with being a part of a terrorist organization. Cut off water, gas, electricity and sewer immediately. Have a medical facility setup and screeners to send the drug addicted to detox centers and the rest once cleared send to lock up facilities to await prosecution. That is what should happen.

    What I see happening is the Seattle mayor will try to bomb these folks with bread and love. If you cross this line you are in trouble young “IT”, wait if you cross this line this time you are big trouble. There is no logical reasoning with the crowd of Fascist “AntiFascists”

    Good Luck Seattle, you reap what you sow.

    When I despair B/C the capitulation of politicians, QB’s & celebs, this new community in Seattle provides a faint ray of hope. As every panegyric gets more strident about George Floyd, (and the attendant de-funding of police), the outcome of this “autonomous zone” can only be chaos piled upon anarchy -And w/ violence. This predictable fore-taste of “de-funding” would certainly do a serviceable job of making people “woke”…

    Take a good long look at the current condition of State St.

    The socialist anarchist crazies want it to look like that forever. If they could they’d take inspiration from the wackos in Seattle and do the same to State St.

    he entire street, boarded up from the Capitol to Library Mall, looks like Detroit and some in that crowd would prefer it be Beirut. Whether it’s misspelled profanities or pathetic attempts at “street art” barely concealing boarded-up windows, all there is up and down that street now is the stench of destruction and hatred.

    Never in a million years did I think I would’ve longed for The Gap and Starbucks but here we are.

    It’s a disgrace and a stain on Madison and Wisconsin.

    And for what???

    Up to 40 businesses, maybe more, may never reopen. Get used to it. As for me, my walk down State St. last week will be my last visit for a long time if the crazies and their cowardly enablers have their way.

    I will spend my money elsewhere.
