Seattle’s brain dead mayor Jenny Durkan is defending the anarchists who have taken over the self proclaimed “Capital Hill Autonomous Zone” or CHAZ saying that their actions are patriotic.
Via the New York Post:
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Thursday defended the protesters who have declared an “autonomous zone” on the city’s streets as “patriotic.”
In her remarks to the press, Durkan also said President Trump’s threat to send in federal forces to crack down on the protesters was “unconstitutional and illegal.”
“Unfortunately, our President wants to tell a story about domestic terrorists who have a radical agenda and are promoting a conspiracy that fits his law-and-order initiatives,” Durkan said, according to Patch.
“It’s simply not true. Lawfully gathering and expressing First Amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color is not terrorism. It’s patriotism.”
Durkan is literally insane for claiming that taking over 6 blocks of a major American city and terrorizing the business owners and residents is “patriotic.”
This woman needs her head examined, and soon!
During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo Durkan doubled down on her stand and it’s about as ugly and nasty as can be.
Durkan said, “We’ve got four blocks in Seattle that you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere. It’s not an armed takeover. It’s not a military junta. We will make sure that we can restore this. But we have block parties and the like in this part of Seattle all the time. It’s known for that.
So, I think the president, number one, there is no threat right now to the public. And we’re looking, we’re taking that very seriously. We’re meeting with businesses and residents. But what the president threatened is illegal and unconstitutional, and the fact that he can think he can just tweet that and not have ramifications is just wrong.”
Host Chris Cuomo then asked, “The counter will be, block parties don’t take over a municipal building, let alone a police station and destroy it, basically thumbing their nose at any sense of civic control. Do you believe that you have control of your city and that you would be able to clear those streets? Because you haven’t.”
Durkan responded, “We do. And the chief of police was in that precinct today with her command staff looking and assessing operational plans. But we saw that it was a point of conflict night after night between the police department and protesters, and we wanted to de-escalate that, and what we decided was the best way to do that was reopen the streets.
And that itself ended up with some ramifications for the precinct to remove anything that was valuable from out of that building. But we will make sure that all of Seattle is safe. We take public safety seriously. But the description the president has given is not only wrong. But if it were right, his remedy is wrong. You don’t ‘dominate[.]’ Remember why we’re here. You know, we’re here because the nation saw Mr. Floyd murdered.
And that lit a match across this country. And we have to acknowledge and know that we have a system that is built on systemic racism and we have to dismantle that system piece by piece. We have to empower the black community and communities of color. And we have to invest in their health and their safety and their education and opportunity.” She later added that people are protesting “a system of domination.”
Jenny Durkan is currently in the lead for being named America’s dumbest and worst mayor, but she has stiff competition in Portland and around the country.
It’s time for the President to invoke the Insurrection Act and clear the anarchists out of Seattle’s CHAZ and throw the lot of them in prison.
