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.

The European Muppet Show

The EU has agreed to postpone Brexit till October 31st. This will give more time for PM Theresa May, undoubtedly the most incompetent PM in British history, to dither and faff around with another 27 versions of a plan that will still resemble the initial deal.  No amount of lipstick on this pig will sell it to the British public. How she hasn’t resigned given the lack of authority is beyond comprehension? Opinion polls already show an overwhelming preference for No Deal.

Yet the 77% of remainer MPs inside the Commons somehow think they know better than the peons. What these elected officials are failing to grasp is that their constituents are questioning the respect shown to the very democratic processes which gave them the privilege to serve in the first place. Many existing members will see their employers sack them at the next election. May has destroyed the Tories.

At the same time, Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party will romp home in the EU elections in May and add to the already rapidly rising trend of populist eurosceptic parties across the continent.  While the EU thinks the extension will just provide a path to keep the UK inside the union bar the nameplate, it actually significantly raises the risks of further revolt within the ranks. His party, not a month old is already polling 3rd, behind Labour and the Tories.

The Britons are being viewed as a calm, placid and polite people but when pushed the lion will roar. What we are witnessing is a complete rewriting of the rules. That all of the legalities surrounding the treaties are being ignored to get a different result to that originally agreed. It is shameless.

Perhaps the UK should look at it this way. If Westminster passes a result that locks the UK into the EU, requiring the latter’s unilateral approval to leave, maybe Brits should show the same exact disdain for legal process and choose to ignore it when it suits. What will the EU do? Invade?
