CHAZ has 99 problems, and all of them involve fighting.

First, some of the left-wing activists who inhabit the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) in Seattle are reportedly trying to rename it the Capitol Hill Occupation Protest (CHOP), and the evidence suggests it’s because they’re embarrassed.

The thing about autonomy is it denotes self-reliance. Yet the Chazistanis, as they’ve been mockingly called, displayed zero self-reliance when they called the Seattle Fire Department late Thursday to help them with a dumpster fire.

Not too long after the story went viral on social media, videos began emerging of the left-wing activists formerly known as Chazistanis suddenly telling people that they are Chopistanis, not Chazistanis, and were in fact never Chazistanis.

Look:

But the evidence strongly suggests otherwise, and this evidence includes media from before the dumpster fire incident showing the words CHAZ displayed all over the so-called Capitol Hill Occupation Protest.

Look:

Hmm …

Seems like someone‘s embarrassed, the key operative there being “one, “because not all the Chazistanis/Chopistanis agree with this abrupt name change.

Observe:

You know, they could just call themselves the Morons™, but …

But that’s not the only problem inside CHAZ/CHOP. According to reports, there has also been some white vs black tension fighting/arguments.

“Inside Seattle’s self-proclaimed autonomous zone, black organizers have expressed doubt over the sincerity of white protesters, as the commandeered six blocks have transformed into a festival-like scene with many snapping selfies in front of murals of men and women who died while in police custody,” Fox News reported Sunday.

Indeed. On Friday several members of Seattle’s African American Community Advisory Council tried to speak with the Chazistanis/Chopistanis about these concerns but wound up being booed and driven off by the region’s mostly white denizens.

Watch:

I’m not done talking, boy!” one of the women yells in the clip above.

Speaking with USA Today, CHAZ/CHOP member Tracy Stewart, a black woman, offered her thoughts on the situation as well.

“These people, I’m not even sure they know why they’re here,” she said. “White people need to stay in when it gets uncomfortable and stop treating this like it is a party.”

“The marching and the protesting, all of that is important. But the work is every day holding the mayor and the City Council and the Legislature and all the way up to the president accountable.”

Accountable for what? Who knows …

“We want to engage them in this movement; it’s very important that if you say ‘Black Lives Matter’ that action follows,” another Chazistani/Chopistani, Jason Beverly, reportedly told the Capitol Hill Seattle blog.

“White affluent people are absolutely in a position where they can step up. You can talk to equity boards in your company, you can ask for funds or donations, you can step up for the African-American communities. There hasn’t been that response yet.”

Though there certainly hasn’t been a lack of effort.

Viral footage from inside CHAZ/CHOP recorded Saturday showed some sort of tribal leader “of color” ordering white Chazistanis to fork over $10 to black people.

Watch:

“I want you to find, by the time you leave this autonomous zone, I want you to give $10 to one African American person from this autonomous zone,” the tribal leader said.

“And if you find that’s difficult, if you find this hard to give $10 to people of color, to black people especially, you have to think really critically about in the future are you going to actually give up power and land and capital when you have it?”
