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.

Comparing gender fluidity in the military vs this 77yo telegram

While the gender neutral PC brigade strives to prevent hurt feelings by way of compelling correct pronoun usage in the military, perhaps they might reflect on how Lt. Norman Martin Peterson was feeling at the time he telegrammed his wife in 1941. Only true veterans can possibly understand how precious life is when living day in and day out under live fire against people sworn to kill them. They never knew when their number might be up. Yet our top brass want to cloak our soldiers in imaginary verbal flak jackets.

75 years ago, this is what Lt Peterson of the 1st Australian Field Ambulance had to say about the people who took for granted the very freedoms he and his mates sacrificed so much to provide. The military is no place for snowflakes.

“Well on reading about some of the women you were telling me about I feel a loathing for such hypocritical parasites. Is this what men are laying down their lives to protect? I sometimes wish that they could see how a bloke looks like when he is unburied for a couple of months, a skeleton with boots and clothes on, eaten by ants. A grinning skull and shirt black and stiff with congealed blood. Or a few Japs scattered around a shell hole with leg bones protruding from their boots…

…I wonder and think that these bones were a few months ago living people, with their loves and hates, wives and mothers, and sweethearts, posted as missing, they are frequently seen in the jungle, unburied until found. Then I think of the mongrels safe in Australia and having a great time the bastards – pardon my eloquence but I really get worked up over the mongrels that are not worth the little finger of the boys on the job defending their pseudo honour and their miserable little lives.”

When a man can see sadness and pity even for his sworn enemy, it makes one reflect on the horrors of war and why we should spend much more time honoring our military’s  bravery rather than protect cowardice by hiding behind compelled speech indoctrination.
