CHAZ “protesters” shouted down an MSNBC reporter who was pandering to them by comparing their lawless movement to a “street festival.” This incident underscores once again why you should never bend the knee to the outrage mob.
Seattle’s CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) is a six-block area that Antifa and Black Lives Matter agitators forcefully took over.

By calling CHAZ a benign “street festival,” MSNBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard was trying to downplay the violent criminality of CHAZ thugs, which are comprised of Antifa and Black Lives Matter agitators.
The brouhaha unfolded on Saturday after Hillyard did a softball interview with a small group of CHAZ agitators. When Hillyard labeled the lawless demonstrations a “street festival,” the protesters shouted him down and demanded an on-air apology.
Before being shouted down, Hillyard said: “It has been peaceful since Monday, after more than a week of clashes between the demonstrators and the police. Now you see essentially almost like a street festival-type atmosphere.”
That’s when one of the protesters interjected: “NO!! It is not a street festival! Do not say that. Shame on you for saying that. Learn right now, it is not a street festival!”
Another protester chimed in: “You have to understand some traumatizing things happened here. All of us are suffering from PTSD in our own country. This is not a street party.”
In response, MSNBC anchor Joshua Johnson told Vaughn Hillyard to let the protesters know that the left-wing network understands that CHAZ is “not a festival.”
Johnson said: “Let him know that we hear him 100% when he says this is not a festival because we saw what happened in Seattle. Let him know we hear him loud and clear. This is not a festival. This is a social movement.”
This incident spotlights why the United States cannot continue to humor street thugs who think they represent the will of 330 million Americans. CHAZ proponents, Antifa and Black Lives Matter do not speak for the entire country.
Meanwhile, a CNN crew was assaulted by Atlanta rioters, who torched the Wendy’s restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was shot by a white cop while resisting arrest.
The irony of rioters attacking left-wing CNN — which has been fomenting racial resentment around the clock — is comical.

In a typical knee-jerk reaction, rioters in Atlanta burned down a black neighborhood because “black lives matter.”

If rioters truly believe that “black lives matter,” why are they burning down black neighborhoods?
Meanwhile, chaos has erupted throughout Seattle’s CHAZ. A shocking video shows an unhinged naked man running through CHAZ. When asked why he was doing it, he responded: “Because I can.”
The sad thing is, this is probably the sanest person in CHAZ.

There are tons of children here too
No American laws. No clothes.
