From #WashTimes’ Cheryl K. Chumley: Anarchists masquerading as social justice activists and George Floyd sympathizers who’ve taken over streets in Seattle and set up a Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, CHAZ, in which no police are allowed have a list of demands for local and state governing officials that clearly shows A) they’re unaccustomed to normal political bartering that includes give-and-take, concession for success, diplomacy as part and parcel of the dance — and B) they’re nuts. And not just any old nuts. The kind of nuts that takes years to hone and develop. Meanwhile, America take note: the takeover of Seattle’s streets is just the beginning. Defund enough police, dismantle enough departments, handcuff — figuratively — enough law enforcement officers from doing their jobs and similar uprisings will come to communities near you. And me. And those of our children. • Full story on our website #opinion #editorial #commentary #washingtontimes #seattle #seattlewashington #chaz #capitalhillautonomouszone #antifa #liberals #anarchist #democrats #blacklivesmatter #politics
