Councilwoman uses her own key to let protesters into Seattle City Hall, demand removal of mayor for not defunding cops

The most radical member of the Seattle City Council purposefully allowed a crowd of unruly “peaceful protesters” reportedly brimming with Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists to enter Seattle City Hall late Tuesday so they could chant for the mayor’s resignation.

Look:

Why all the anger against Mayor Jenny Durkan? Because she’s been willing to allow Seattle police officers to use a very limited amount of force to quell the looting and rioting that has ravaged the city since Minneapolis black man George Floyd’s death in late May.

During one riot last Saturday, for instance, rocks, bottles and explosives were thrown at local officers. Several officers were reportedly injured.

Look:

In response, city police chief Carmen Best, a black woman, reportedly authorized her officers to use flash-bang devices and pepper spray to disperse the clearly unruly thugs.

But for reasons that remain unclear, this justified action by the city’s black police chief outraged the city’s Maoist-mob and its veritable leaders in the Seattle City Council.

Example:

The woman above, Teresa Mosqueda, is a member of the Seattle City Council. So is Kshama Sawant, the radical member who allowed “peaceful protesters” into Seattle City hall late Tuesday. She was equally disturbed by the police not only defending themselves but also arresting the thugs who’d tried to assault them.

And as seen in the tweets below, Sawant chose to aim all her fury at Mayor Durkan:

Days later, she permitted “peaceful protesters” to storm into Seattle City Hall.

“Hundreds of protesters entered Seattle City Hall Tuesday night along with Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant,” local station KCPQ reported.

“People marched from Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood where Sawant held an event at Cal Anderson Park. The protesters made their way into city hall and speakers were demanding change. They were heard calling for the resignation of Mayor Jenny Durkan.”

See more footage from the “protest” below:

Led by Sawant, the “protesters” reportedly also called for re-taxing Amazon …

“Taxing Amazon is absolutely a part of Black rights … It’s about actually putting dollars in the table to address inequities affecting the Black community,” the radical Seattle City Council member said in a statement to Evan Bush of The Seattle Times.

Two years ago, the council passed an ordinance that would have forced an annual $275/employee on all large businesses in Seattle, including Amazon.

The tax was repealed shortly thereafter because of backlash from not only big employers like Amazon but also labor unions. Mosqueda and Sawant were predictably the only two members of the council to vote against the repeal.

During Tuesday’s “protest,” Sawant was also questioned about why she led hundreds of people into a closed space amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

She responded by making it clear that, much like other left-wing hypocrites, she doesn’t feel that safety concerns ought to apply to her cause, of course.
