Woke Out Of Touch Seattle Mayor is not Running for Re-Election
Jenny Durkan infamously announced last summer that the takeover of part of Seattle by antifa and Black Lives Matter radicals was really a good thing. Sure, home and business owners felt unsafe and endangered, but Durkan told them to turn their frowns upside down. She appeared on CNN to tell a national audience that, in fact, the area run by angry radicals could turn out to be the “summer of love” instead of the hell hole it was becoming. There were “four shootings, two deaths, arsons, and several alleged sexual assaults” inside the squalor known as the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone, which was later re-christened CHOP, or the Capital Hill Organized Protest area.
In a video announcing that she would not run for re-election, Durkan claimed as one of her accomplishments that she “stood strong against the Trump administration,” which probably refers to her lawless sanctuary policies and letting antifa run wild. She infamously stood down the police, which led to her police chief resigning. Two white Black Lives Matter protesters were hit and killedwhen Durkan let protesters flood the freeway.
Like many other West Coast cities that have not enforced laws on vagrancy, sleeping on the streets, and drug use, Seattle is overrun with people looking for no- or low-cost and responsibility-free housing where they can indulge their drug addictions. A documentary about the wave of homelessness called Seattle Is Dying is part of Durkan’s legacy.
