I went to the park that Occupy had taken over in New York City. The smell was memorable.
PJ Media has a good bead on this Seattle circus.
Antifa Seizes Seattle PD, Sets Up ‘Autonomous Zone’ Just Like ISIS and the Paris Commune
Do you know what the Paris Commune was?
It was a short lived socialist coup in 1871 which eventually ended up in “The Bloody Week” when the army put the insurrection down, like the rabid dog that it was. The moment inspired Karl Marx. It was truly an annus horriblis.
Here’s another quote:
“Folks in Seattle have secured six block of city [at the moment], barricaded it, and gotten local businesses and residents to agree to, well, disaffiliate from Seattle basically. It’s a flux state in the making,” Alex Humva tweeted.”
Yeah, I’ll bet they got local businesses to agree. “Nice store you’ve got here. Pity if it burned to the ground.”
This little group of nutjobs in Seattle isn’t going to do their cause any favors.
The zone includes the “Captured Regime East Precinct (Abandoned Police Station with doors left unlocked lol),” along with areas marked “Commune Food Stations,” “CHFZ Commune Barricades,” “Relaxation & Dining Field (food regularly handed out + coffee bar),” and a “Stoa (Informal Congregational Area).”
Doesn’t it sound like paradise? I wonder if there will lots of weed and free love passed out too… if everyone isn’t too passed out in their own feces to enjoy it.
And what would Anti-Seattle-ifa be without a coffee bar?
The leftists are getting in Seattle exactly what they deserved. I wonder if they are enjoying themselves now.
I am reminded of a series of dystopian books. The action takes place in Washington State, and in Seattle.
299 Days: The Preparation by Glen Tate
Not great literature, but thought-through regarding a collapse of society and the sort of people who take advantage of the problems.
These domestic terrorists will leave behind a toxic waste zone as bad as the ideas they embrace.
Let’s pray that it not end in quite the same way as The Commune did.
Perhaps the Archbishop of Seattle could have public readings of his new pastoral letter on liturgy to bring everyone together in common vision of sharing and equality.
Where ever left-wing politics and ideologies reign, this is what happens, both in society and in the Church. Disease and social dis-ease overlap, for reasons that are increasingly manifest.
