But that was then, this is now. Seattle today is a city dominated by homeless bums, rabid drug addicts, and sexual perverts. Earlier this week, several of that class of citizens decided to take over a district in the City known as Capitol Hill after the police fled from the precinct in the face of the peaceful protests. The scum then had the audacity to declare an independent socialist republic! The area is known now as the 'Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or 'Chaz'. Somewhere along the line, they even appointed a President: one Solomon Simone who had a career a few years back as a hip-hop musician.
Now President Simone heads a country that (so far) is unrecognized by any other government---including that of the United States. The Trump Administration has offered to send in Federal troops to put down this insurrection, but the Whacko Left running Washington State roundly rebuffed the suggestion. Frankly, if I were in his position, I wouldn't ask for permission. One look at the local law enforcement apparatus should indicate just how competent they are to bring the situation under control.
Those living outside of the Chaz Soviet might laugh over this; but it's no laughing matter to the citizens trapped inside of this cesspool. By the Seattle Police Chief's own admission, our first Worker's Paradise is conspicuous for violent crimes and property expropriation. That's been true of all Communist States however. As Lenin---who coined the term ' Political Correctness' famously said: "You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs." And President Simone strikes me as the type who enjoys cracking eggs just because eggs are white.
The vermin in the MSM have been carrying on as if the Chaz Soviet is some sort of idyllic land where everyone partakes of the opiate of Universal Love. It's real Opioids that is likely fueling most of this, however.
Reality, however, has this way of intruding upon Liberal pipe-dreams. Ignoring the Chaz Soviet isn't going to make it go away. This is a situation that's bound to get worse if it isn't stopped cold. Communists are thugs; and thugs are attuned to sense weakness in others. And that weakness just emboldens them. The Chaz Soviet maybe a brush fire; but brush fires can become wildfires: and that's what will happen once the scumbags in other cities decide they want their own countries too.
If the last four years have taught us anything, they've taught us not to underestimate President Trump. Whatever he has planned, he needs to do it fairly soon. We're probably closer now to a Red Revolution than we've ever been, and we need an intervention ASAP.
