(FreedomJournal.org)- You’ve probably seen by now how Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists successfully took control of between four and six blocks of the city of Seattle. Armed with guns and other weapons, radical leftists set up barriers around the blocks, reinforcing their borders in the way they criticize President Trump for doing and created the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” They are an armed junta taking control of American land, destroying property, and making a mockery of the policy – and the Mayor of Seattle let it happen.
Mayor Jenny Durkan, a Democrat, told the news that she wasn’t concerned by the “CHAZ” and the radicals who have taken over the section of the city. In fact, she seemed excited about it and told the press that she considered it more of a “block party.”
When asked how long she expects it to go on for, Durkan didn’t say she’d send in the police to solve it but instead suggested she’d let them go on for many months more. It could turn into a “summer of love,” she said.
But while the Mayor of Seattle mollycoddles the dangerous protesters, who have destroyed countless properties already, the President of the United States is promising to send in the military if necessary.
“I saw her break down. I saw her leave. I saw her have absolutely no control,” Trump said during an interview with Haris Faulkner. “I saw her make a lot of bad decisions.”
The president slammed Mayor Durkan’s appeasement of the violent, armed gang, and said that only toughness can solve the problem.
“Toughness sometimes is the most compassionate, because people are getting badly hurt,” he said. “What I mean is very simple. We’re not going to let Seattle be occupied by anarchists. And I’m not calling them protesters.”
The president also said that he would prefer to see the Governor of Washington Jay Inslee to send in the National Guard, but that he would take action himself if state officials don’t do it soon.
“If there were more toughness, you wouldn’t have the kind of devastation that you had in Minneapolis and in Seattle,” Trump said. “I mean, let’s see what’s going on. So I will tell you, if they don’t straight that situation out, we’re going to straighten it out.”
