Spineless SJWs in Seattle

The Seattle City Council has determined that multiple roles traditionally operated by the Seattle Police Department should be replaced with the ‘Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention.(DOCS&VP).’

Their logic is clear enough:

Whereas, the Council is committed to confronting the structural and institutional racism as a fundamental step towards addressing the racist institution of policing

…Whereas, these protests forced many nationwide and in Seattle to confront the racism that has been plaguing the Black community for centuries and spread to other communities of color, the harmful impacts of white supremacy culture, and the Seattle Police Department’s (SPD) role in perpetuating racism and violence.

As a city, whites make up 65.7%, Asians 14.1%, Black 7.1% and Hispanic 6.3%.

Ethnicity of the Seattle PD is 74%, 6.9%, 8% and 4.7% respectively.

For what it is worth, if the Seattle PD perpetuates so much racism, why is the Chief of Police Carmen Best, black? Why is Assistant Chief – Special Operations Bureau Eric Greening, black? So of the 8 command staff, 50% are white. Meaning 50% aren’t.

The DOCS&VP will be required to have:

Culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections

• Well versed in de-escalation skills and mental health support

• Trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis

• Connected to resources like housing, food security, and other basic needs.

How spineless are the Democrat council members, so desperate to score moral preening points, that they spit in the face of the brave men and women who defend them?

Mayor Jenny Durkan already displayed her brazen incompetence over CHAZ. Stands to reason that her council share her shocking lack of judgment. Await another spectacular failure which will only end up perpetuating the very things they think they’ll stop. Madness.

Bill DeBlasio introduces gun buyback program

Where will NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio’s genius end? As gun crime spikes in his city, he thinks a gun buyback will solve it. Maybe cutting $1bn from the police budget might be a factor in rising crime? When his own police officers are quitting in droves and making spoof videos about the new rules he has set for interacting with suspects.

Perhaps gangsters can hand in the guns of their victims and start a side business. Who knew the mayor might end up subsidizing criminals?

Sadly, despite shootings up 253% in NYC in mid-July, the studies on gun buybacks in the US have all returned the same result – ineffective.

We are struggling to work out who is the worst mayor in America. De Blasio must be in the running. The field of incompetent Democrat mayors is deep. – Lightfoot, Durkan, Bottoms, Bowser, Wheeler, Garcetti… the list goes on.

Petition to recall Seattle mayor approved by judge

The Recall Jenny Durkan campaign to remove the Democrat mayor of Seattle is underway after getting a King County Superior Court judge’s approval. Mayor Durkan was the individual who said CHAZ was an acceptable form of protest, even calling it a “summer of love” right up until the mob came to her $7m mansion. Never mind the deaths, the violence, destruction of private property, rapes, forcing whites to pay blacks $10 and demanding a whole host of supplies from the very democracy they wanted to overthrow. Our posts on Durkan can be seen here.

We view this as a good benchmark for anti-Democrat sentiment, especially given that Seattle and Washington are hard core blue states. Hillary Clinton garnered 52.5% of the vote vs Trump’s 36.8% in the 2016 election. Durkan won 56.25% of the 2017 mayoral election.

The Recall Durkan website notes,

Mayor Durkan’s complete negligence in protecting the rights and safety of the people of Seattle has made a clear case that she is no longer fit to govern.

Together, let’s keep making history and #FireTheMayor…

…For our petition to elicit a recall, the petitioners will need 56,202 physical signatures.

Over 36,000 have signed the change.org petition in the two days it has been approved.

Surely there are enough centre-of-the-road Democrats with common sense to join the movement to oust such an out of touch elected official.

Segregated in Seattle

This is truly sick. How much more of this racial segregation malarkey can Americans tolerate? What are we on about?

The City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email last month inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness.

Christopher Rufo wrote an article in the City Journal after he received the training pack under a freedom of information request. His piece can be found here.

Rufo notes, “trainers explain that white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their “humanity” and caused “harm and violence” to people of color.

Once the diversity trainers have established this basic conceptual framework, they encourage white employees to “practice self-talk that affirms [their] complicity in racism” and work on “undoing [their] own whiteness.” As part of this process, white employees must abandon their “white normative behavior” and learn to let go of their “comfort,” “physical safety,” “social status,” and “relationships with some other white people.”

This insanity is off the charts. We’re surprised rats in face cages aren’t part of the process.

It isn’t the first time this type of brainwashing has hit Seattle. Starbucks also indulged in this Marxist rubbish two years ago after a store called the police on two non paying customers who refused to leave that just happened to be people of colour.

We wrote,

Starbucks closed 8,000 stores on Tuesday and reached out to activists and bias training experts to put a curriculum together for its 175,000 workers to prevent “unconscious bias

…While training staff is never a bad thing, do the human resources/ PR department at Starbucks honestly think that explicitly educating white people about their racism (if it truly exists on any scale to warrant the conscious bias based indoctrination) will do anything other than alienate more customers? What a smear on the majority of clientele and staff who no doubt exercise decency when transacting their skim milk doubleshot latte.”

These diversity trainers are absolutely the last people qualified to dictate to others about society.

Note Seattle has been Democrat for the last 30 years. Mayor Jenny Durkan was the one who called CHAZ a “summer of loveuntil it threatened her $7m mansion.

CHAZ gets the CHOP. Democrat Mayor acts after her $7m mansion threatened

Jen

Liberal logic at its finest. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) has finally sent in the police to clear out the “summer of love” after her own $7.6m mansion was threatened. This tweet captured it all. Good videos of the action here.

We wonder whether CHAZ should take their grievances to the UN Security Council and ask for sanctions on the US for invading a peaceful sovereign nation. After all, #AllNationsMatter.

Funny how politicians start to act when things begin to personally impact them.

Who Knew? 18.6% of Minneapolis real estate listings up for sale in last 7 days

Minnyap@

Do Americans really want Democrat policies at a national level? As the Minneapolis City Council voted to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with community-led public safety groups, reports are that 18.6% of Minneapolis’ total real estate listings have come up for sale in just 7 days. Real estate website Zillow has tested at 15%. As a rule, 5-6% of total properties is a general average for properties for sale at any one time. Minneapolis at 3x that. Who knew?

What did these politicians think when they were debating to disband the police? None of this cross their minds?

What is worse, the tax base will shrink with it further compounding the problems these political hacks think they will solve for with kumbaya hand-holding. Watch crime soar. Well done liberals. Just when we think new levels of stupidity are hit, you guys manage to lower the bar time after time.

Once again, how can sane Americans honestly see Democrats as a credible alternative to Trump, for all of his foibles?

Seattle Mayor says CHAZ could be a “summer of love”

Seattle’s Mayor Jenny Durkan (Democrat) has fired back at criticism over the Capitol Hill Autonomous Hill (CHAZ) secessionist movement defending the armed Antifa types who have driven off police and set up checkpoints, by saying it is “more like a block party atmosphere” than an “armed takeover.

Even CNN’s Chris Cuomo questions the occupation of a municipal building and destroying a police station.

What an embarrassment. Durkan said she was not sure how long CHAZ would stay but it could be a “summer of love.”

CHAZ has released a charter with specific demands. Will Mayor Durkan cave into them?

1. Abolition of the Seattle Police Department and attached court system. We do not request reform, we demand abolition. This means 100 per cent of funding, including existing pensions for Seattle Police. At an equal level of priority, we also demand that the city disallow the operations of ICE [Immigration enforcement] in the city of Seattle.

2. In the transitionary period between now and the dismantlement of the Seattle Police Department, we demand that the use of armed force be banned entirely.

3. We demand the people of Seattle seek out and proudly support Black-owned businesses. Your money is our power and sustainability.

4. We demand that not the city government, nor the state government, but that the federal government launch a full-scale investigation into past and current cases of police brutality in Seattle and Washington.

5. Reparations for victims of police brutality, in a form, to be determined.

6. The retrial of all People in Color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crime, by a jury of their peers in their community.

7. Replace the current criminal justice system the creation of restorative/transformative accountability programs as a replacement for imprisonment.

One doesn’t need to be a rocket scientist to work out the tribal identity politics being demanded.

Perhaps Durkan might want to speak to Seattle Councilwoman Kshama Sawant who said “CHAZ” should remain in community control permanently. Sawant openly declares on her Twitter handle that she is:

‘Seattle City Councilmember ~ Socialist ~ Member of Socialist Alternative and AFT 1789 ~ kshama.sawant@seattle.gov’

Sawant tweeted, “Our movement needs to urgently ensure East Precinct is not handed back to police, but is turned over permanently into community control…My office is bringing legislation to convert East Precinct into a community center for restorative justice.”

That summer of love may turn into a winter of discontent for the majority of residents in Seattle, especially if the heavily armed warlord, Raz Simone is out there dispensing rough justice on those that fall out of line.
