(Tea Party PAC) – A socialist Seattle city council member who vocalized support for the now-notorious “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” (CHAZ), formerly the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ), has come up with a pretty crazy conspiracy theory for why someone got shot in the occupied zone, where police aren’t allowed.
And no, it definitely has nothing to do with the fact that the zone was expressly created to keep police officers out.
The Daily Wire reports:
In a statement released late Saturday, Kshama Sawant expresses her condolences to the CHOP community and doubles down on demands to “defund the police,” even though violence inside the “cop-free” CHOP has increased markedly over the past week according to long-term residents, who now say they no longer feel safe with the ongoing protest.
“Our deepest condolences go out to the loved ones of the black protester who was tragically killed this morning by gunfire at the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP),” Sawant said. “Socialist Alternative and I stand in solidarity with the family and friends of the victim, and with the injured protester now in the hospital, as well as with all community members and fellow activists.”
She then goes on to claim that the attack shows signs of a “right-wing” plot.
“Though we await confirmation of the details of the killing, there are indications that this may have been a right-wing attack. If so, this would not be the first such attack on the Capitol Hill Black Lives Matter protest,” Sawant suggests.
“We need immediate solidarity with the protest at the CHOP, and unity in our movement against reactionary violence. Our movement refuses to be intimidated.”
I don’t want to hear liberals ever question a thing that Trump says, ever again, if this woman can get away with such an absurd and baseless accusation.
So far, no other official has blamed the shooting which took place in the early hours of Saturday morning on the right.
The details of the shooting are unclear, as “residents” of the protest zone formed a mob and prevented law enforcement officials from responding.
But Sawant doesn’t need police intervention to know who is responsible.
Naturally, it’s Trump.
“It is no accident that right-wing hate and violence has grown dramatically with Donald Trump in the White House. If this killing turns out to be a right-wing attack, President Trump bears direct responsibility, since he has fomented reactionary hatred specifically against the peaceful Capitol Hill occupation, and even threatened to intervene with federal troops,” Sawant wrote.
Amazingly, Sawant tries to out-radicalize far-left Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan, who herself has quite lovingly referred to the occupied zone as a “block party” and a “summer of love.”
Sawant also blames Durkan!!
Sawant’s rant goes on, doubling down on calls to “defund” and “disband” the Seattle Police Department, but she does admit that she wants no movement on that particular issue until the same Seattle Police she wants to be eliminated gets to the bottom of Saturday’s violence: “Our movement should also demand and insist that the Seattle Police fully investigate this attack and be held accountable to bring the killer(s) to justice.”
