  • Anti-cop Seattle councilmember gets SPD to pull appreciation event invite

    Anti-police Seattle City Councilwoman and mayoral candidate Lorena González pressured the Seattle Police Department to rescind an invite to a law enforcement appreciation dinner. The May event is being hosted by Rev. Franklin Graham and the Ministry of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The SPD Wellness Unit forwarded a link to the invite without commentary on April 14. But in Seattle, you don’t get to appreciate law enforcement — not if Gonzalez has anything to do with it. APRIL 18, 2021 AT 4:30 PM Councilmember Lorena Gonzalez.

  • The soul of Seattle: Riots and rabid left-wing lunatics aren't the only thing plaguing this once livable city

    If you've spent any time in Seattle, and I have over the past three decades, you will notice that something strange has occurred. I don't mean the socialist idiot city councilwoman Kshama Sawant and her raving minions. Nor is it the entire city council that echoes the latest and most progressive progressions of the progressed. Neither is it the homeless encampments defiling a once beautiful, clean cityscape with their needles, trash, and turds. No, this is much more subtle until it hits your cognitive center like a Tesla running out of juice before you get to your destination with no...

    Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said Tuesday that the city is working on new methods to protect freedom of speech while holding protesters accountable for acts of vandalism committed during demonstrations. Her comments come hours after storefront windows were shattered and graffiti splashed on walls during a Monday night march to protest the shooting of Daunte Wright by a police officer near Minneapolis. “We will support those people who protest peacefully but the people who come just bent on destruction and committing crime, we won’t condone that at all” Durkan said. Most of the mainstream media reported that no arrests were...

    The Washington Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that the effort to remove a Seattle councilwoman, who was accused of allowing protesters into city hall during riots in the city, can proceed. City official Kshama Sawant, a socialist, faced a recall after she purportedly "admitted hundreds of people into Seattle City Hall," "led a protest march to Mayor Jenny Durkan’s private residence," and "failed to comply with public disclosure requirements," the court wrote. Charges were "factually and legally sufficient for recall," and the effort was allowed to continue, justices concluded. **SNIP** A group committed to preserving Sawant's spot on the government...

    A Black Lives Matter protester who spent time at CHOP is now charged with hate crimes against Asian-American women. Prominent activists and organizers in the BLM movement told KOMO News they remember Christopher Hamner, but not for his contributions. One remembers his “creepy stares,” and another said his actions seemed “to come out of left field.” Seattle police arrested Hamner last month for two separate incidents of alleged anti-Asian hate attacks. Pamela Cole said Hamner threatened her and her young children when they tried to drive past him. “He just opens his door and starts yelling at me. ‘F’ you,...
  • A Professor Pushed Back On Mandatory ‘White Fragility’ Training For Four Minutes, The School Investigated Her For Nine Months

    Today Reason published a piece by Jesse Singal about an English professor named Elisa Parrett. Parrett teaches at a public technical college outside of Seattle called the Lake Washington Institute of Technology. Last June 19, in the wake of the death of George Floyd, the school held an event called Courageous Conversations which was based partly on Robin DiAngelo’s book White Fragility. The event was mandatory in the sense that the school’s president sent an email asking every professor to attend unless they had a conflict with their teaching schedule. It was also segregated by race, meaning whites in one...

    A private social services nonprofit booted a foster family with four kids from its home in order to house unaccompanied migrants. As a result, one foster teen was hospitalized with anxiety. Another teen ran away and as of Monday, is still missing. Kirkland-based Friends of Youth (FOY) owns a property in Renton called the Howard House. They decided to transition to a new source of funding, ditching local foster children for migrants from the border. The group removed Edmundo Serena Sanchez, his wife, and their four teenage foster kids from the home. FOY is turning the residence into a group...

    A well-known Black Lives Matter activist, Democrat, and ANTIFA member Christopher Allen Hamner, 51, is accused of committing anti-Asian hate crimes in the Seattle area, according to Komo News. Hamner was arrested on Thursday, March 25, for allegedly attacking and threatening multiple victims because of their perceived race, court documents showed. King County prosecutors charged the 51-year-old of SeaTac, Washington, with a felony hate crime for targeting multiple Asian victims on two separate occasions in March. Hammer, who is biracial, allegedly threatened women and children, one as young as 5-years-old with racial slurs, according to PM. On March 16, Hamner...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Prosecutors in Seattle and San Francisco have charged men with hate crimes in separate incidents that authorities say targeted people of Asian descent amid a wave of high-profile and sometimes deadly violence against Asian Americans since the pandemic began. Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Los Angeles and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday, the latest in a series of rallies in response what many said has become a troubling surge of anti-Asian sentiments. “We can no longer accept the normalization of being treated as perpetual foreigners in this country,” speaker Tammy Kim...

    Oh, well: Seattle police arrested a suspected carjacker Thursday night, after he was alleged to have driven the stolen vehicle through a crowd of protesters. Roughly 100 people gathered around 6 p.m. Thursday at Cal Anderson Park, as part of a call to defund the Seattle Police Department and “invest in Black communities.” The group — which included Seattle council candidate and local activist Nikkita Oliver — marched downtown and stopped in front of SPD’s West Precinct. While marchers were moving through the downtown core, a fight was reported near 11th and Pike.

    Grier reportedly admitted to agents that he had drunk several beers and multiple shots of alcohol before boarding the plane. He apparently fell asleep on the flight and awoke to flight attendants yelling at him for urinating on his seat. While he was apparently passed out, however, Grier allegedly struck a flight attendant who asked him multiple times to put on his mask, which had apparently fallen off while he was asleep. Grier reportedly told federal agents that he had no recollection of this. Unfortunately for Grier, he is facing federal charges of interfering with a flight crew and attendants....

    Last week, leading Socialist Alternative member Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant declared that she was joining the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) in the US. Sawant’s announcement followed a December 15 statement from Socialist Alternative that it would be sending a significant section of its membership into the DSA. Sawant said that her decision was motivated by the need for “a mass working-class party, a stronger labor movement, and victorious struggles in our ongoing fight against the billionaire class.” She added, “In my view, to move forward we need to advance the Marxist ideas that will be necessary to...

    Seattle City Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda amplified a Socialist promoting communist propaganda from Cuba. It also includes a picture glorifying Cuban tyrant and mass murderer Fidel Castro. The tweet screenshots an “article” from Granma, the official voice of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee. In it, the communist propaganda outlet snaps at the United States for designating their country a state sponsor of terror. They earned that designation for … sponsoring terrorism. They also harbor terrorists and U.S. fugitives. The move, in the waning days of the Trump administration, reversed an Obama-era decision from 2015. Mosqueda’s tweet comes after what...

    Last year’s dreadful miasma of Covid, recession, police violence, and coup attempt obscured some remarkable advances by local and national left-wing movements. Florida voters, while rejecting the Biden/Harris ticket, overwhelmingly approved a $15 minimum wage. Arizona and Oregon approved tax increases on the wealthy to fund public education. Colorado passed paid family leave. Portland, Me., voters approved rent control. All six representatives in historically swing districts who supported Medicare for All won reelection. Ninety-two of the 93 House Democrats—including all four in swing districts—who ran in November as Green New Deal sponsors won reelection. At least 20 candidates endorsed by...
