Skip to comments.Trump to Governor Inslee Amid Seattle Antifa Revolt: 'Take Back Your City NOW. If You Don't, I Will.'
Posted on 06/11/2020 6:37:29 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
As antifa militants have taken over six blocks of Seattles Capitol Hill district, calling it the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone or the Peoples Republic of Capitol Hill, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has refused to act, and Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) actually laughed about this open revolt, claiming he hadn’t heard about it. He did say, however, that he was demobilizing the National Guard. President Donald Trump told Durkan and Inslee to get their acts together, stat.
“Radical Left Governor [Jay Inslee] and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before,” the president tweeted. “Take back your city NOW. If you dont do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stooped IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!”

President Trump is correct this is not a game. Roughly 500 Americans live in the six city blocks that antifa militants have claimed in the name of their revolution. The anarchists in the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” appear to have set up an extortion racket to blackmail local businesses into forking over supplies.
Yet Jay Inslee appears to think it is a game.

Under 35’s in the NG probably support CHAZ.
Scary but decent chance you’re right.
I’m glad he thinks this is funny, I didn’t realize commies had a sense of humour.
I guessing thats also true for the active military.
I’m pretty sure that President Trump will not intervene. The Democrats hope he does. The Democrats hope Trump sends in troops and shoots Americans down in the street. But the President isn’t going to fall for that. This is a Democrat problem. They can either have the chaos and destruction or the Democrat governor can send in the National Guard to shoot Americans down in the street.
It’s like conservatives think their commie kids are the ONLY ones.
They’re ALL commie.
Trump should stay out of it and let the State of Washington burn. They voted for the leadership that they have.
If Trump doesn’t follow through,he’ll look like a paper tiger. Please Mr.President,stop this madness or WE will.
I have a younger cousin who is.
If not commie, then radical islamist.
But seriously, what does Trump think he can do?
Unlike Occupy Wall Street, I think you will see areas surrounding that 6 block area begin to have problems when resources become an issue.
This is really Inslee and the Seattle mayor's problem. At least for now.
It’s a guarantee that MOST of your younger cousins are.
They were educated to hate and despise you.
There are patriots in Washington as well as other blue states. Don’t abandon them.
Dag gonnit....... About the time ya get a decent revolution started, the homeless show up, with all their begging, and break off all the good food and drugs and liquor.
And it’s getting worse. Here come all the raggedy trailers and tents, garbage, barking dogs, and.....guess where the new toilets are?? Watch out where you step.
I’ve been saying this was to goad the federal government into another Waco I-style response.
Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Somehow I don’t think Barr will be promoting/defending flamethrower tanks or FBI snipers.
The other one seems normal.
