Antifa Seizes Seattle PD, Sets Up 'Autonomous Zone'
Just Like ISIS and the Paris Commune

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 6/10/2020 4:28:53 AM

Just as the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed territory in Iraq and Syria, antifa militants have claimed territory in Seattle, Wash. According to reports on the ground from The Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo and Townhall’s Julio Rosas, protesters and antifa instigators have seized land in the Capitol Hill area around the Seattle Police East Precinct. Like ISIS, the rioters appear to have decided on setting up a government in their occupied territory, naming it “Free Capitol Hill.” “Seattle [Mayor Jenny Durkan] is allowing a dangerous situation to fester. [Antifa] militants have taken over & created an ‘autonomous zone’ in city w/their own rules. Police precinct abandoned.

There are reportedly five hundred residences inside this Antifa-occupied zone. Imagine yourself suddenly under the authority of this gang of criminals! Nothing other than utter and ruthless force will rid our society of these vermin! Trump should declare open season on these enemies of the Republic and the NYT be damned!

I don't think this is going to last long. Now that Antifa has been designated a domestic terror group, the Feds are now in the process of going after their money. No money, this organization will become cripple and then the Feds can come in and dismantle them. Or, the people of Seattle will get tired and frightened of this and vote the councilman out of office. Replace them with sane people. At this moment, I'm not sure what can happen.

Everyday something totally off the wall happens and I find self saying, I cannot believe that is happening here. This, however, is the most disturbing and that says a lot. It is also a very dangerous model that will be quickly followed by these anarchists all around the country wherever they are able. They will start in democrat controlled cities where there will be little to no pushback against them. Eventually, they want to replicate their example in every state. We will have little pockets where these fascists will rule using resources pumped in by the dark forces that have been funding and enabling this violent mob’s insurrection. The media will be there to report glowingly on the utopia they have created. Do not be fooled by this. It is not an organic uprising of enlightened and concerned young people. This is fully funded and enabled by the anti-American globalists who are hell bent on destroying this country. It is as big a threat as any foreign enemy we have ever faced and could be even more dangerous. No one has dared to come to our shores to subvert our Republic until now. These are not a bunch of rag tag idealists but a very organized and funded direct assault on our government. This is an insurrection that will be repeated in cities all across this land unless our government goes in quickly and shuts it down using whatever amount of force is necessary. These are not kids taking over the university President’s office during a sit in. Think of similar no go zones Like the ones in Paris popping up all around the country. They just want to get their militant little feet in the door in order to create the chaos we have witnessed with shock and revulsion in other countries. This should appall every reasonable American. Our leaders should speak out forcefully against any community that would want to set itself apart from our laws and become its own quasi-government. The anti-American forces used this crisis as a springboard to foment their little plan to bring down this country from within. I know it sounds ridiculous considering our strength to repel any foreign invasion but what good is it if it will not be utilized. And they know the optics would be awful. Anarchy is a tool of every fascist revolution that has been used to control and then destroy nations and if you think it can’t possibly happen here, look around you. Democrats have aided and abetted their senseless chaos and don’t expect them to stop now. They want the total transformation of this country as much as these anarchists do. Their political benefactors are funding the chaos and the democrat party is going to offer protection. Our President is now faced with the most important challenge of his presidency. God help give him wisdom, clarity, and most of all trusted patriots surrounding him that understand exactly what this is and why it is the biggest threat this country has ever faced.

Gee. Is this the kind of thing Tom Cotton suggested required the military? Seal it. Methodically check it out and document every person checked/allowed to leave/detained. If this kind of thing isn't dealt with authoritatively, quickly, you'll get more. Having citizens defend themselves from this crap is not going to be pretty.

Since this is a Terrorist Group, shouldn't the Military handle this? Shouldn't they send in their Best, Raid the Place, arrest every single person who thinks they are part of the group, Try them and send them to Prison for a long time. Then do the same to ANY group in this country who thinks they are going to take over our Country. The people of Seattle should be packing their house and moving. They probably won't be able to sell it now, but maybe they can get their family out before this whole thing blows up. Those who stay should recall all the people in charge who allowed this travesty to take place!! This will be a campaign Ad before sundown today, and it should be to WAKE UP the people in this country who think these protesters and Looters are just blowing off steam. They have a Plan, and you will be affected by their plan if you just sit there and think we should allow them to do this because they are so repressed. Bullhocky! The funeral I saw yesterday looked like Princess Diana's. And why were they allowed to have 500 people in that church when the average person was not allowed to lay their loved one to rest without a Funeral at all? This is madness!

Go seize the mayor, city counselors, and district attorney's homes and offices. Even if the feds cut off Antifa or BLM's money, they can still be funded through the democrat party. It was recently discovered that BLM is funneling money to the dem party. The upcoming election will not be normal. This is their time; and they believe America is theirs for the taking; they won't quit until they are made to quit.

Re #10. I recall when Janet Reno and BJ Clinton sent the feds to arrest David Koresh and ended up killing 76 men, women, and children. They certainly didn't hesitate to use deadly force against a group perceived as right-wing. Unlike the Branch Davidians who weren't bothering anybody at that point, the Antifa bunch have seized private property and instigated violence. Let's see if Antifa gets treated the same.

They want to set up their own rules- and asked for volunteer armed guards.. This is beyond ridiculous- we have a volunteer army, armed and ready to protect and serve- We have police department filled with good cops- run by unions protecting bad cops.. The Antifa are trying to force Pres Trump to use military on citizens- optics for election year.

Anytime the domestic terrorists set up a defined so-called Antifa occupied zone in a leftist and liberal Democrat run city, the response by federal, state, and local law enforcement should be to physically seal them inside that zone, cut off all the electricity, and electronic communications abilities for anyone in that zone to reach the outside world, and starve them out. Anyone in those terrorist controlled zones who wants to voluntarily leave can be vetted and leave through designated departure paths, leaving the Antifa operatives to be identified, arrested, and prosecuted. It’s really up to the adversely effected voters of those cities to get rid of the local politicians who collude with and facilitate Antifa disrupting their cities.

10 U.S. Code § 252 - Use of militia and armed forces to enforce Federal authority Whenever the President considers that unlawful obstructions, combinations, or assemblages, or rebellion against the authority of the United States, make it impracticable to enforce the laws of the United States in any State by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, he may call into Federal service such of the militia of any State, and use such of the armed forces, as he considers necessary to enforce those laws or to suppress the rebellion. Mr. Trump this is an occupation of America to deprive citizens of voting rights; rights to constitutional law; safety; proper handling of government documents(deeds etc); and the right to life, and liberty. This cannot be tolerated, you must move this occupation immediately and restore the rule of law. Declare martial law for the city of Seattle.

Amazing how many "states rights" advocates now demand Federalizing a local problem like this. Antifa and its allies would love nothing better than a good head bashing or Koresh-style shootout with Federal officers to change the dimensions of all this from local to national...and then Katie bar the door. The states and cities have created this environment. They have the means to enforce the law and shut this down, and refuse - some have essentially surrendered. If Trump involves the Feds, especially the military in any of this, he's a fool. Perhaps that's why he has not. Have fun, Seattle, Chicago, St. Louis, New York, D.C., Richmond and wherever else this nonsense breaks out.

No, people should NOT move out and just let them have it. That's exactly what this strategy of theirs is hoping to accomplish so they can start accumulating more and more territory that they control, setting up their own laws and their own paramilitary police forces. Marxists always use relatively small, violent groups, often woven in to larger protest groups, to give the impression of "popular uprisings". This is an attempted expeditionary invasion by a terrorist group. It needs to be stopped by military force if the local authorities won't do it. And if military force is not used, the "Concord moment" may have arrived for patriots who will not allow our country to be ceded to any takeover. Antifa's big mistake is that instead of just hitting and running away into the night, they have concentrated their forces into a fixed area. They have made themselves an identifiable fixed target. Big mistake. A correctible one.

As an added thought: Who is supplying food? What rules do they want to establish? Did they buy the land? Are people free to leave the barricades? Or, are we dealing with a hostage rescue? Who is funding Antifa? Who is the prescribed leader of the Seattle illegal action? And since the Mayor is complicit in actions, needs to be arrested for aiding and abetting.. (actually any sanctuary city mayor should be arrested,but I digress)

Taking over a portion of US territory by a domestic terrorist group or groups, and placing that territory effectively outside the political and law enforcement control of US government entities, local, state, and federal, is definitely an insurrection against the USA. If that is not so, what is a insurrection?

Will the residents be allowed to own property? Remember, property ownership is bad for lefties. Gee, what political philosophy says property ownership is bad? The Seattle mayor let this happen. How clueless and stupid is that? This is what passes for leadership in America, folks. These people aren't fit to govern. We absolutely must do better than this.

At some point, we are going to have to start breaking heads, and perhaps shooting some of them, if the are violent. I think that time has passed, but we'll see. At least throw up a cordon and shut down power, water, internet, cell phones, jam all radio bands and no food. And take full biometric info on every single person who comes out. This won't last over a week, more likely less, if they do that.

This is ludicrous. I pray President Trump doesn't intervene until/unless there is a great hue and cry for federal intervention. The leftist mayorette, city council, and ignoramus liberal governor brought this on their people. Let them try to resolve it. Not until they fail and plead for federal help should President Trump ramp up the marines. Governor Inslee can call out the National Guard of Washington, such as it is, and try to fight them that way. And BLM wants to disband police forces in our cities. Ha. So much for that narrative.

Abe Lincoln would have Soros & Sons, the Washington AG, the Seattle DA, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Mayor Jennie Durkan, Chief of Police Carmen Best (if she can be found) arrested and federal troops shooting the Antifa bastards by dawn tomorrow. President Trump will probably wait until the Governor Inslee asks for help, and IF he does, deputize a couple of hundred National Guard as U.S. Marshals and send them in to restore order.... Then turn it back over to the wimpy leftist politicians that let it happen in the first place. :-(

As much as I hate saying this, There won't be any military attack until after November 3rd. Perhaps, turn off their utilities. Although, we'll have to be very careful with the other residences in that area. The Antifa are fierce and vicious on the street with ordinary people but are not sophisticated in battle. I'm thinking of mercenaries. Let's see how what they d next. I'm sure we have that hotel's specifications by now and have it under surveillance. I remember all that from watching 24.

Right now this is all on the Governor of the State of Washington, as the Mayor of Seattle has shown that she is scared to death of the Anarchists and is frozen in place. The Governor has the law enforcement and National Guard resources at hand to return that Anarchist occupied area of the City of Seattle to normal. The media is now reporting that the Anarchists are now armed with AK-47 semi-automatic rifles. Until the Governor formally requests federal assistance in putting down that insurrection the President should stay out except for federal law enforcement functions. Ultimately the voters of the State of Washington should watch what their Governor, and the Mayor of Seattle have done and are doing in response to the Anarchist’s challenge, and decide if those are the type politicians they want to run Seattle and their State on into the future.

I say we respect their claim to this land. However, since it's no longer part of the USA, put up a barbed wire topped fence -- nobody in our out. Guard it like any border with a hostile foreign country. Cut all American electricity, water, and gas to that area. No food deliveries. No medicine deliveries. Block all Internet and cell phone signals to that area. And most painful of all, no marijuana deliveries. And if anyone tries to leave, shoot them on sight. We can't have foreign terrorists invading our country!!! And when they finally all surrender, they instantly lose their US citizenship, since they renounced it when they declared independence from the USA. They are then immediately deported to any 3rd world cesspool willing to offer them asylum. Sounds like a win/win to me!!!!!

A man who worked at the same club with George Floyd and Derek Chauvin – and previously told CBS News the two had "bumped heads" – changed his story Wednesday, saying he had mistaken Floyd for another unnamed African-American employee. David Pinney told CBS News he worked at the same club where Chauvin and Floyd were employed to provide part-time security. Chauvin is the former police officer who is charged in Floyd's death. In an interview with CBS News, parts of which aired Tuesday, Pinney had described a tense relationship between Chauvin and a man who he said was Floyd,

Seattle’s hard-Left secessionist movement has claimed its first territory: six blocks in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. For the past week, Black Lives Matter and Antifa-affiliated activists have engaged in a pitched battle with Seattle police officers and National Guard soldiers in the neighborhood, with the heaviest conflict occurring at the intersection of 11th and Pike, where law enforcement had constructed a barricade to defend the Seattle Police East Precinct building. Hoping to break through the barricade, protesters attacked officers with bricks, bottles, rocks, and improvised explosive devices, sending some officers to the hospital. At the same time, activists circulated videos of the conflict and accused the police of brutality,

After the actual riots, the metaphorical ones. Reputations get burned down. Careers get their windows smashed in. Character gets assassinated. Much of this has been nearly as senseless, emotion-driven, and inane as the actual burning, looting, and destroying of urban neighborhoods. Attacking Drew Brees for expressing widely held patriotic beliefs was about as rational as setting fire to a gas station. Brees should have realized this, taken a deep breath, and reacted in the following way: by doing nothing. Brees should have let his original statement stand. “I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America,” was what he said,

John Gleeson is the former judge tasked by Emmet Sullivan, the judge in the Michael Flynn case, with talking him into sentencing Flynn in a case that the prosecution has moved to dismiss. One wonders whether any such “talking” is required, other than for the sake of appearances. In any event, Gleeson today filed his brief. He argues that Judge Sullivan should reject the government’s motion and continue the prosecution to sentencing, notwithstanding the prosecutor’s desire to stand down. Gleeson had sketched out this argument in a Washington Post op-ed before Sullivan appointed him to brief the matter.

Joe Biden’s video address to George Floyd’s funeral was impressive — but only if you just landed from Mars. With maudlin soundtrack and husky voice, the former vice president oozed empathy as he churned out empty platitudes about “racial justice” that are at odds with his personal history and the record of the Democratic Party he has represented for 47 years. “I grew up with Catholic social doctrine which taught me that faith without works is dead,” he said, “and you will know us by what we do.” OK, I accept the challenge.

Earlier today Allahpundit wrote about the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) which was set up in Seattle after police retreated from a few square blocks. The denizens of this new experiment in police-free living were probably envisioning a utopia full of peace and community love. Instead they got a new self-appointed police force led by a rapper named Raz Simone. Early this morning someone posted a video clip to Reddit which shows Simone and a group of people confronting a graffiti artist. Things escalate and eventually the tagger is assaulted by someone in the group and has his phone taken away.

Joe Biden is set to attend a high-roller fundraiser Thursday evening headlined by anti-police activist John Legend, who has openly promised that he'll try to push the former vice president towards totally defunding law enforcement and adopting other far-left positions. Legend has argued, for example, that President Trump's base consists of white supremacist terrorists -- a line of attack reminiscent of Biden's assertions that 10 to 15 percent of Americans are "just not very good people," and that many Trump supporters believe "Mexicans are rapists and all Muslims are bad." Barbra Streisand, Jay Leno, and Jennifer Hudson will also attend the 8 p.m. ET "Fabulous Evening" event,

Police and sheriff's deputies in Central California are searching for a man they say shot a deputy in the head early Wednesday and killed another man in what investigators described as an "ambush" attack on a police station. The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office said Mason James Lira, 26, opened fire at the Paso Robles Police Department before 4 a.m. Wednesday, shooting a responding deputy in the head. The deputy's partner dragged him to safety and returned fire, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson said. The bullet remained lodged in the deputy's head and he's in serious condition at the hospital, Parkinson said.

Black lives matter. That statement is undeniably true, but not all black lives matter to the group Black Lives Matter. Apparently, retired police Capt. David Dorn of St. Louis was not worthy of the same outrage as George Floyd. Dorn was gunned down by looters after answering an alarm at a pawnshop belonging to a friend. Black Lives Matter was silent. An arrest was made. Black Lives Matter was silent. As it turns out, it’s not the life that matters to Black Lives Matter, it’s the person who killed them. It’s hard to find anyone in this country who wasn’t outraged by the murder of Floyd. There have been other accusations

Brace for the fight of your life. The biggest difference between today and four years ago is that this time they know Donald Trump can win. Sure, it was ugly last time. They despised him, because they despise you. They wanted to destroy him, because they don’t care about you. They told endless lies about him because they are fundamentally dishonest people incapable of arguing about the vital issues Mr. Trump built his campaign around.

Grammy-winning country group Lady Antebellum is changing its name to Lady A, with members saying they are regretful and embarrassed for not taking into consideration the word's associations with slavery. The band, made up of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, made the announcement Thursday on their social media. The statement said that they chose the name after the antebellum style home where they shot their first band photos, and it reminded them of Southern styles of music. But they said in recent weeks, their eyes have been opened to 'blindspots we didn't even know existed' and 'the injustices, inequality and biases

Cornel West and civil rights attorney Leo Terrell were supposed to have a civil segment on defunding the police, urban violence, and Democratic incompetence at addressing these issues, but things went off the hinges almost immediately. It was absolute mayhem on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. Hannity prefaced the segment about the Democrats’ inability to govern, which was interrupted by West. The shouting began almost immediately. Terrell hit back at West for just recycling old Democratic talking points. He then tried to have a discussion with West, “black man to black man,” which West did not take well at all.

As antifa militants have taken over six blocks of Seattle’s Capitol Hill district, calling it the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” or the “People’s Republic of Capitol Hill,” Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) laughed about this open rebellion, saying he hadn’t heard about it. Inslee added that the National Guard is demobilizing, and his chief of staff suggested that even if an open rebellion had broken out on the streets of Seattle, it would be up to “local authorities” to fight it. “Passing the buck” doesn’t even begin to cover the insanity of this “response.” A reporter asked Inslee about the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone during the governor’s press conference

NASCAR is finally showing a red flag to the Confederate flag. In a major move for the sport of stock-car racing, NASCAR announced it is banning the Confederate flag. “The presence of the confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry," NASCAR said in a statement on Wednesday. “Bringing people together around a love for racing and community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the Confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.”

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis called George Floyd by name, twice, and offered support to an American bishop who knelt in prayer during a Black Lives Matter protest. (Snip) Francis “wants to send a very clear message to these conservative Catholics here who are pro-Trumpers that, ‘Listen, this is just as much of an issue as abortion is,’” said Anthea Butler, a presidential visiting fellow at Yale Divinity School. Butler, who is African American, said the Vatican is telling Catholics “to pay attention to the racism that is happening and the racism that is in your own church in America.

"There was a gentleman who was directly in front of the statue and when the statue finally did give way it came and fully hit him in the head," a local Black Lives Matter representative told news reporter Brett Hall.

Have you heard that a six-block section of Seattle has become an anarchist “capitol hill autonomous zone,” or “CHAZ” for short? It has. Police and firefighters vacated their premises and bugged out with a Twitter blessing from Mayor Jenny Durkan. Durkan dithered over the descent of protests into violence for a week before doing much, and when she did much, her choice was to tweet in hasty retreat. Anarchists quickly set up CHAZ to be and do its own thing, as long as that thing conformed with diktats of the CHAZ hierarchy. They put up makeshift signs saying, “You are now leaving the U.S.A.”
