Seattle mayor slams protesters for
showing no 'regard for' her 'safety'
as demonstrators circle her home

Original Article

A group of protesters marched to the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Sunday afternoon, upset that she pledged to dismantle the police-free "Capitol Hill Organized Protest" zone, known as CHOP. Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant joined a group of dozens of demonstrators gathered at Durkan's home who were holding signs, chanting, and demanding she leave the area alone or meet protesters' demands. Durkan said last week that police would soon return to Seattle's East Precinct, which has been overrun by protesters who set up the CHOP zone, but gave no timetable.

The most shocking about this story is that anyone (especially someone in a position of power) would believe that by appeasing the mob you will become immune to it. A lot of the "woke" out there are slowly waking up to this blatantly apparent fact and realizing that it's too late to back out. They've unleashed the beast and I think they're terrified.

I think the Seattle residents affected by CHOP CHAZ should take advantage of this opportunity and join the protestors on this one. However, I do believe this is more about a girl fight between the "mayor" and councilperson than anything to do with the best interests of the city. May they both lose.

If only there was some sort of organization that monitored citizens for violations of the law and was able to 'arrest' them for those violations and bring them to justice.

Why didn't she just sit with them on the front lawn for a chorus of Kumbya? A drum circle perhaps? Just remember: "don't take the brown acid". Peace love and dope mayor.

She should have watched more mob mentality movies when she was young. The old westerns used to lynch the inncocent cowboy. In her case they didn't "woke" to the face that she encourages violence but only to the people that agree with the mob.

Oh my, oh my...what to do! Next thing she will call the Police to protect her! Oh oh....they aren't going to give her the time of day even if the Mob hangs her from the highest tree. So...I guess she will have to call in the National Guard. Oh oh...they don't much care for her either! Should be interesting what Miss Smarty Pants will do to get herself out of this mess! And when the Mob finally is run out of Seattle, she will be facing an Angry Mob of Business People and those who lived in Apartments in the area of CHOP, who want her resignation and are going to sue Everyone involved, in allowing CHOP to takeover the City, for millions! Going to be a Long Summer of Love for that very Stupid Woman!

It's the 'summer of love' and Durkan wants to end their summer camp. Jenny this is what happens when the ride on the back of the alligator to cross the pond then it eats you. It's what they do. All you white liberal women better understand BLM doesn't like white skin including yours so why do you show solidarity with riotous thugs who really hate everyone who is not their own race. Enjoy what you let happen buy a gun like the St. Louis couple did and point it at them.

It is hilarious to hear a dem leader, Dr. Jenny Frankenstein, whining that the mob, her monster, is out of control and is sitting on her front lawn just waiting for a final trigger to run amok and destroy her. What righteous and delicious schadenfreude! Did mayor Jenny not realize that many of the people in Seattle have been terrified of her monster all along? This is a clear example of how dems are very willing to unleash uncontrollable destructive forces against America so that they might win an election.

Jenny don't show any regard for the citizen's of her city's safety, despite being the Mayor, and the official responsible. Jenny don't show much regard for the safety of the police, or their duties, but neither do the Seattle police. Louie Gohmert says if you don't enforce the rules, then there are no rules. Just an admonition to the left that the right might disregard the rules some day, and that might not be good for the left.

She shows no regard for ANYONE's safety in the city. I hope they keep her on edge for the next month. Her Summer Project downtown didn't work out. Note that all it took to get rid of it was the mayor saying it was an illegal protest....POOF - gone. The whole occupation zone was 100% her creation. It had to have her support and approval and it did the whole time. The idiots inside were just her puppets.

It took several months for the first iteration of the Ferguson Effect to become obvious. Michael Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in August 2014, triggering local riots and a national narrative about lethally racist police. Officers backed off proactive policing in minority neighborhoods, having been told that such discretionary enforcement was racially oppressive. By early 2015, the resulting spike in shootings and homicides had become patent and would lead to an additional 2,000 black homicide victims in 2015 and 2016, compared with 2014 numbers. Today’s violent-crime increase—call it Ferguson Effect 2.0 or the Minneapolis Effect—has come on with a speed and magnitude

The fevered frenzy against public monuments has caused varied reactions. Among scholars, the main symptom is seemingly contagious dispassion. When a New York Times columnist spoke with art historian Erin Thompson, for example, their interview closed with Thompson recommending the use of chains for those interested in inverting large objects. She appears to have an affinity for neither art nor history. Thompson may have caught the bug from archaeologist Sarah Parcak, who recently — and apparently satirically — briefed mobs struggling to dislodge obelisks. “It is sometimes complained,” drawls historian William Cavert, “that such acts erase history.” According to him, that is a popular grievance against the destruction of statues

Many see the slogan Black Lives Matter as a plea to ­secure the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, especially historically wronged African Americans. They add the BLM hashtag to their social-media profiles, carry BLM signs at protests and make financial donations. Tragically, when they do donate, they are likely to bankroll a number of radical organizations, founded by committed Marxists whose goals aren’t to make the American Dream a reality for everyone — but to transform America completely.

As protesters and armed anarchists seized control last month of a swath of Seattle's downtown that includes a police station, dubbing it Capitol Hill Organized Protest, the local and mainstream media largely echoed elected leaders by insisting it was a peaceful protest – until people started getting killed. The spin by the Seattle Times and national outlets that covered it belied the violent and dangerous origin of the area that began on June 8, when Seattle police abandoned their own station and allowed self-described anarchists to create a "police-free" zone. On Wednesday, police went back in and finished clearing out the area,

With five months until the election, things couldn’t look any worse for the president of the United States. His approval rating is down to 40%. People are getting tired of his antics and the insults he hurls at his opponents. The media is increasingly confident that, come November, the voters will elect a new chief executive. This might sound like June 2020, but I’m actually referring to June 1948 — when President Harry Truman, a Democrat, was running to keep his job against Republican Thomas Dewey. The similarities between the 1948 and 2020 elections are striking.

T he website PredictIt now shows California senator Kamala Harris as the clear frontrunner in the Biden veepstakes, with close to a 50 percent chance of getting the nod. The second most likely Biden VP, according to the site, is Florida congresswoman Val Demings — who is at 14 percent — and in third place is Susan Rice, the former national-security adviser to President Obama, who is at 12 percent. The conventional wisdom appears to get the three finalists in the veepstakes correct. Biden seems increasingly likely to pick an African-American woman, so that rules out Elizabeth Warren.

As states begin to reopen and America tries to recreate normalcy, masks have replaced social distancing as the new moral statement. Just as adherence to lockdowns was framed by many as a sign of virtue—with some arguing that those who refused to abide by the lockdown orders should forfeit medical care for Covid-related indications—masks have become a face-borne signal of righteousness. As a virologist, I find this perplexing, considering the limited evidence in favor of masks. More than anything, the scientific rationale behind masks appears to be that wearing them does little harm. Countervailing benefit need not be particularly significant to justify a public-health intervention.

A group of protesters marched to the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Sunday afternoon, upset that she pledged to dismantle the police-free "Capitol Hill Organized Protest" zone, known as CHOP. Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant joined a group of dozens of demonstrators gathered at Durkan's home who were holding signs, chanting, and demanding she leave the area alone or meet protesters' demands. Durkan said last week that police would soon return to Seattle's East Precinct, which has been overrun by protesters who set up the CHOP zone, but gave no timetable.

Hundreds of former officials who served under President George W. Bush are gearing up to endorse presumptive Democratic Nominee Joe Biden. The group of officials—which include members of Mr. Bush’s cabinet and other senior officers—has reportedly formed a political action committee dubbed 43 Alumni for Biden. Mr. Bush was the 43rd president. “We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal. The president is a danger,” Jennifer Millikin, one of the 43 Alumni organizers, who worked on Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign and later in the General Services Administration, told Reuters.

Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant joined a group of dozens of demonstrators gathered at Durkan's home who were holding signs, chanting, and demanding she leave the area alone or meet protesters' demands. Durkan said last week that police would soon return to Seattle's East Precinct, which has been overrun by protesters who set up the CHOP zone, but gave no timetable.

It’s all about the Benjamins. A couple of Republican senators rolled out a proposal Wednesday to cancel Columbus Day and replace it with Juneteenth, saying they don’t want to just list both dates as federal holidays because that would “put us further in debt.” Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and James Lankford of Oklahoma made the fiscally hawkish suggestion in an amendment to a bipartisan bill that would make Juneteenth a federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery without tinkering with Columbus Day.(Snip) Rather, Johnson said he and Lankford picked Columbus Day because it’s “lightly celebrated” and its cancellation would be “least disruptive

With five months until the election, things couldn’t look any worse for the president of the United States. His approval rating is down to 40%. People are getting tired of his antics and the insults he hurls at his opponents. The media is increasingly confident that, come November, the voters will elect a new chief executive. This might sound like June 2020, but I’m actually referring to June 1948 — when President Harry Truman, a Democrat, was running to keep his job against Republican Thomas Dewey. The similarities between the 1948 and 2020 elections are striking.
