I lived in Seattle for about nine months back in the late eighties. I was still a Liberal Democrat back then, and even I thought the people in Seattle were nuts.
Apparently that nuttiness has only gotten worse over the intervening years.
A portion of downtown Seattle has been taken over by radical Leftists and the foolish clown mayor is totally okay with it.
In fact, she thinks they’re patriots.
The police were forced to board up and evacuate their own precinct. A radical socialist city council member unlocked the doors to city hall and let the lunatics overrun what was already an asylum.
911 calls from the overrun area relating to rape, robbery and assault have tripled.
But for Seattle Mayor Jenny Chamberlain … oops, sorry … I mean Jenny Durkan, this is just one great big patriotic block party – Seattle’s own Summer of Love.
This fool thinks armed insurgents taking over a section of downtown Seattle are just exercising their first Amendment rights?
Where in Lucifer’s reach does the First Amendment protect anyone’s “right” to illegally occupy property, set up roving bands of vigilantes, or shake down local business owners to pay tribute to them?
What is wrong with this woman?
It doesn’t surprise me that Chris Cuomo responded by saying, “I understand your sentiment.” After all, he’s the same blithering idiot who said, “Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful.”
Maybe Chris thinks the First Amendment does protect the “right” to rape, rob and assault people. He isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Chamberlain Durkan isn’t just appeasing a mob. That’s bad enough. But she’s also acting like a proud mom – delighting in the mayhem, chaos and anarchy as if it’s the most wonderful thing in the world.
“Summer of love.”
Sweet merciful Zeus.
Yes, it must be a Summer of Love. I mean, look at the increase in rapes!
But what can you expect from a Mayor elected by the nuts who live in Seattle?
I can’t even with this.
“Hi, my family and I were on our way to church in Pearl Harbor. And right before the planes started bombing the base, it was very peaceful.”
Given how insane Seattle residents already were in the eighties, this kind of “aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the show?” cognitive dissonance doesn’t shock me too much.
But I expect a Mayor to have a better grasp on reality.
Then again, lacking a grasp on reality just might be a requirement to run for office in Seattle. Who knows?
Chamberlain Durkan also has the added handicap of End-Stage Trump Derangement Syndrome.
She is a proud member of the ResistanceLOL — so hyper-focused on Bad Orange Man that she can only see things through the lens of “owning Trump.”
Now, part of me doesn’t give the hairy ass of a rat if Seattle turns into a lawless shithole. Maybe that’s cynical of me, but really, you get what you vote for.
Listen, Seattle. If you elect a dingbat like Jenny
Chamberlain Durkan, that’s not a me problem; that’s a you problem.
You break it, you buy it.
As I said last week, when you have a leadership vacuum, something is going to fill that void.
Jenny Durkan has created a leadership vacuum. Which is why an aspiring rapper armed with a Kalashnikov has now declared himself King of what Jack Posobiec calls Antifastan.
But because Durkan is a feckless, appeasing fool, rather than seek to regain control of the city she supposedly runs, she waxes nonsensically about a Summer of Love and Patriotism while taking nasty swipes at President Trump.
You break it, you buy it, Seattle. She’s all yours.
There is another part of me, however, that is not so cavalier about the breakdown of civic order in Seattle.
As the cascading riots of last week showed us, these things do not remain contained. And, sadly, there are far too many capitulating appeasers leading Democrat-run cities in America.
If Mayor Durkan lets this continue, these radicals will become emboldened. Other cities, run by equally feckless mayors, are going to see the same thing happen to them.
Radical anarchists like Antifa and far-Left Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter want make this country ungovernable.
And they won’t have to exert much effort to get there. Not when major American cities are governed by reckless fools like Mayor Jenny Durkan who happily give them a helpful assist.
All to defeat Trump in November.
