Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin must have lofty political aspirations in the Democratic Party. Why else would she allow a domestic terrorist organization to seize control of a section of the city and establish a caliphate on American soil?
The radical left long ago seized control of the party, making anarchy and cancel culture its brand. It was inevitable that as terrified citizens within the Seattle caliphate hired professional security to protect their lives and property, someone would eventually get killed.
“The decision to board up the precinct — our precinct, our home, the first precinct I worked in — was something I was holding off. You should know, leaving the precinct was not my decision,” Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told the rank-and-file after the mayor ordered her to hand it over to thugs.
Antifa criminals were seen brandishing semi-automatic rifles and brazenly telling police officers they cannot enter the “autonomous zone.” Reports of extortion, assault, and sexual misconduct were rampant. Still, Mayor Durkin supported the takeover as Antifa solicited members with firearms to hold the caliphate.
“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,” Mayor Durkin told CNN. “But we have block parties and the like in this part of Seattle all the time. It’s known for that.”
This block party included makeshift barriers, armed guards denying certain citizens access, and extorting money from white Americans. Being ordered to stand down and watch the section fall into lawlessness was demoralizing to Seattle PD.
“You fought for days to protect it. I asked you to stand on that line day in and day out, to be pelted with projectiles, to be screamed at, threatened, and in some cases hurt. Then to have a change of course nearly two weeks in — it seems like an insult and our community,” Chief Best said. “I’m angry about how this all came about.”
Two separate shooting incidents took place in the Seattle caliphate within 48 hours. A pre-dawn attack on Saturday, June 20, reportedly left a 19-year-old man dead and another critically wounded. Police responding to the murder “were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers’ safe access to the victims,” according to reports. Police officers were forced to retreat from Mayor’s Durkin’s “block party” without securing the streets or coming to the shooting victims’ aid. The fire department had to be called to transport them to the hospital. In a separate shooting, a 17-year-old suffered life-threatening wounds.
Given the Democrat mayor failed to keep the people of Seattle safe and kneeled to domestic terrorists, President Donald Trump ordered her to restore order or face federal intervention.
“Radical Left Governor @JayInslee and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW,” President Trump tweeted. “If you don’t do it, I will.”
Although she demonstrated complete and utter disregard for law and order, she apparently feared the political optics of troops on the ground. Seattle police were ordered to take back the neighborhood and expel rioters. The same thugs they handed it over to.
