Dem Leaders in Seattle Surrender to the Mob, Allow Antifa Goons to Take Over Part of the City

The weak Democrat leaders of Seattle have surrendered to the antifa mob, boarding up a police facility, allowing unruly radicals to flood a city council building, and even take over a large section of the city.

Hundreds of far-left agitators and at least one City Council member stormed Seattle’s City Hall Tuesday night to demand the mayor’s resignation if she refuses to defund the city’s police department.

Councilwoman Kshama Sawant reportedly helped the agitators get inside the building.

Antifa extremists in the city recently seized a six-block area in the Capitol Hill section of downtown Seattle that now includes an abandoned police precinct, calling the commune the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” or “CHAZ.”

“When antifa can’t achieve a full revolution, they take over a small area in leftist cities to carry out their utopian commune experiment,” independent journalist Andy Ngo explained on Twitter. “It ends in neighborhoods being destroyed & occupiers forcibly dispersed because of health hazards. They leave the filth behind for others.”

Below are some of the demented figures inhabiting Seattle’s “autonomous zone.”

The above antifa account put out a request on Twitter for more food , including vegan meat substitutes, fruits, oats and soy after the homeless people they invited to their commune stole their supplies.

A seattle-based antifa group put out a request on Twitter for “more people with guns” to patrol “CHAZ.”


Like many other cities, Seattle saw violent riots following the death of George Floyd, the unarmed career criminal who died at the hands of Minneapolis police.

For nearly two weeks, antifa-fueled mobs in Seattle clashed with the police, throwing glass bottled, rocks and other projectiles at officers. The police responded with pepper spray and tear gas to break up violent rioters.

The riots and looting destroyed many businesses in downtown Seattle, including those owned by minorities in the Chinatown/International District, according to the Post Millennial.

Even though Mayor Jenny Durkan handicapped the city’s police force on Friday by banning the use of tear gas against the violent mob, the agitators were not satisfied.

On Tuesday, they released a long list of demands that included abolishing the police and “youth jails,” as well as “reparations for victims of police brutality,” and “a retrial of all People in Color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crime, by a jury of their peers in their community,” and assorted free stuff. The entire list can be seen here.

According to Fox News, Seattle Police responded to the radicals by rolling back “aggressive policing tactics,” saying they will only enter antifa’s “autonomous zone” if there is a 911 call for an emergency.

In an effort to “de-escalate,” police on Monday removed the barricade that protected the East Precinct facility from violent demonstrators.

During a press briefing, Police Chief Carmen Best said Seattle Police explained that demonstrators would now be able to walk freely around Capitol Hill. “We’re not going to evacuate or abandon the East Precinct,” she said. “We will be hardening the East Precinct facility by boarding up the exterior windows, and applying fire retardant to the building exterior and installing fencing.”

In June of 2018, an anti-ICE Autonomous zone in Portland Oregon was allowed stand for five weeks, becoming a biohazard with intravaneous drug abusers and masked agitators terrorizing local residents and businesses. Tax payers ended up footing the bill for the extensive clean-up after they were finally driven out.

In response to the demonstrations Tuesday night, Durkan’s office said in a statement that she remains committed to making “actual steps on policing” and other measures of reform.

“As the person who originally investigated the Seattle Police Department for the unconstitutional use of force, Mayor Durkan believes that SPD can lead the nation on continued reforms and accountability, but knows this week has eroded trust at a time when trust is most crucial,” the statement said.
