Seattle Mayor Durkan Downplays Autonomous Zone: ‘We Could Have the Summer of Love’

Seattle Mayor Durkan Downplays Autonomous Zone: ‘We Could Have the Summer of Love’

“We’ve got four blocks in Seattle that you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere. It’s not an armed takeover. It’s not a military junta.”

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan downplayed the six-block autonomous zone in the city on CNN last night after President Donald Trump demanded she restore order to the city.

Durkan claimed the zone is “not an armed takeover” and “more like a block party.”

Yet, the police chief said their “calls for service have more than tripled.” Videos show tension within this zone.

Doesn’t Durkan realize that no matter what she does these people still want her to resign?

The best part came when Cuomo asked Durkan how long she thinks this will last in Seattle.

Her answer: “I don’t know. We could have the summer of love.”

Breitbart has the transcript (emphasis mine):

Durkan said, “We’ve got four blocks in Seattle that you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere. It’s not an armed takeover. It’s not a military junta. We will make sure that we can restore this. But we have block parties and the like in this part of Seattle all the time. It’s known for that. So, I think the president, number one, there is no threat right now to the public. And we’re looking, we’re taking that very seriously. We’re meeting with businesses and residents. But what the president threatened is illegal and unconstitutional, and the fact that he can think he can just tweet that and not have ramifications is just wrong.”

Host Chris Cuomo then asked, “The counter will be, block parties don’t take over a municipal building, let alone a police station and destroy it, basically thumbing their nose at any sense of civic control. Do you believe that you have control of your city and that you would be able to clear those streets? Because you haven’t.”

Durkan responded, “We do. And the chief of police was in that precinct today with her command staff looking and assessing operational plans. But we saw that it was a point of conflict night after night between the police department and protesters, and we wanted to de-escalate that, and what we decided was the best way to do that was reopen the streets. And that itself ended up with some ramifications for the precinct to remove anything that was valuable from out of that building. But we will make sure that all of Seattle is safe. We take public safety seriously. But the description the president has given is not only wrong. But if it were right, his remedy is wrong. You don’t ‘dominate[.]’ Remember why we’re here. You know, we’re here because the nation saw Mr. Floyd murdered. And that lit a match across this country. And we have to acknowledge and know that we have a system that is built on systemic racism and we have to dismantle that system piece by piece. We have to empower the black community and communities of color. And we have to invest in their health and their safety and their education and opportunity.” She later added that people are protesting “a system of domination.”

Cuomo then asked about criticisms that she is tolerating people on the left running “free on the streets.”

Durkan answered, “So, Chris, as you know, I was a United States attorney here in Seattle, and during that time as United States attorney, we investigated and prosecuted a whole range of bad actors, including militia groups and drug cartels, anarchists, and the like. We are — we have our public safety approach in one way. And during this time, a number one priority every American city has is to protect the First Amendment right. Our country was born out of protest. The right to gather, the right to protest, the right to challenge government when it’s wrong is our most fundamental constitutional right. It’s a reason it’s the First Amendment. And as a mayor of the city, I will do everything to protect that right and balance the public safety. I think not only can we do both, I think we have to do both.”

Ms. Durkan believes these anarchists are patriots. She has said so. The only conclusion is that she should not be allowed to hold public office in the United States.

    Well, that disqualification pertains to all Dhimmi-crats, at all levels of government, across all geographies. They are vindictive, narcissistic, callous and imperially arrogant narcissists and totalitarians who are manifestly unfit to wield political power, in any capacity. I wouldn’t trust them to clean toilets, properly.

        Mayor and Govenor are feeding those communists on the taxpayer dime.

        They are not in Nashville and here are the results.

    She’s either an enormous dumbass who does well on exams, or she’s part of the plot.

    Either way…

      All of the Above.

        Not just part of the plot – I think “Mayor Jenny” is one of the prime organizers.

        SHE ordered Precinct 3 to be abandoned.
        SHE made sure to encourage them to move into City Hall.
        SHE made sure that Electricity and Water stay on.
        SHE is making sure that food shipments are being sent in.
        SHE is continuing to make sure that No Police can approach, and that any other LEO is kept far away.

        This is a planned Op orchestrated by Mayor Jenny and her political allies. Antifa is there because Mayor Jenny wants them there.

          Seattle Officials Planning to Take Back CHAZ Occupied Zone

          Mayor Jenny Now Worried About Safety…

These people are flat out stupid and nutso. How do they think this plays with decent America?

“We could have the summer of love.”

Unlikely. Plan of a summer of a lot of shiitte in the streets.

As I recall (or have read), the Summer of Love was pretty violent. Does herhonner know that?

“Summer of Love,” my derriere. More like the Battle of Mogadishu, circa 1993.

The Dhimmi-crats are vile narcissists and fools. Grant them political power at your own peril.

have they appealed to the US for foreign aid, admission into the UN?

Ali Mahdi Muhammad. When he was president of Somalia his administration only controlled a few city blocks of the capital. Warlords controlled the rest of the country.

Mayor Durkan is starting to resemble Ali Mahdi Muhammad.

“Liberalism is a mental disease.”

We are so far beyond that sentiment, we need to vote democrats out of office nationwide, and rally to keep them out of office wherever and whenever possible. We need to certify every single vote in every election nationwide. We need a complete overhaul of our voting system to include new penalties for fraud.

Enough is enough.

    The ghetto looting mentality had entered the mainstream when bill and hillary clinton got into the White House: they even stole the silverware.

    The GOPe jumped aboard very happily, grabbing whatever they could that was left behind.

    The ghetto looting mentality hit an abolutely zenith with obama in the White House and hillary clinton as secretary of state, and boehner was Squeaker of the House.

    The ashes of America are the legacy of obama. And transvestites sexually harrassing children in public libraries.

We have to empower the black community and communities of color.

I think that means “There’s nothing wrong with this country which couldn’t be fixed with more looting and arson.”

What we want: Mayor Jenny’s Summer of Love.

What we get: Colonel Kurtz’s Descent into Insanity.

Jenny Durkin is scared to death. When one of the city councilors gave the rioters the key to City Hall, they quickly occupied City Hall and chanted: “Hey Hey Ho Ho, Jenny Durkin has got to go.”

Mayor Jenny knows that if she says one wrong word, the Mob will turn on her, and the left-wing City Council will follow the Mob’s diktat and force her to resign.

That’s also why the Governor, Jay Inslee, pretended not to know about the Mob’s takeover of central Seattle. It’s better for him to feign ignorance than to open his mouth and say something that might upset the Mob.

Mayor Durkin is stuffed full of more nonsense than the Christmas Goose. As for the Summer of Love, I think she’s harkening back to the Haight Ashbury days in the summer of 1967. I was living in Berkeley at the time–and was danged glad that San Francisco Bay was between me and Haight Ashbury. Let’s drop Mayor Durkin the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone for three days and see she survives.

drednicolson | June 12, 2020 at 4:22 pm

For a certain definition of “love”, I suppose.

    She’s kind of a doofus.

    We can be sure she is chief because of her qualifications: being black.

    This is where affirmative action is the great destroyer of black people: it makes them untrustworthy in the eyes of people.

    In a meritocracy, color means nothing. If you needed surgery, who would you trust, Ben Carson or Bill Di Blasio?

Keep a copy of this post. Eventually there will be a purge and dissident elements in the CHAZ will be eliminated. When the pictures of the bodies come out, we need to label them “SEATTLE’S DEMOCRAT SUMMER OF LOVE”.

    Oh Dear – Seattle Officials Planning to Take Back CHAZ Occupied Zone – Mayor Jenny Now Worried About Safety…

    The Last Refuge

I’m in the UK and my heart goes out to all the decent people of the USA of any colour I can not belive what I’m reading are these loonycrates smoking crack or meth to see people on the streets looting and burning is bad BUT FFS letting it continue is insanity then add the press kissing far left’s arse .These liberal PC brigade morons need to stop patting themselves on the back for how modern and forward thinking they are and how the world will be a tree hugging liberal world no violnce(but when there is they will get a proper good telling off lmfao)no theft because theres no envy in the world for latest hand set or best trainers .The people causing thgis do not want to work they want to take(just like a spoilt kid ) A SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO ALL YOUR POLICE AND LAW INFORCEMENT AGANCIES STAY STRONG you my heart and soul goes out to the shit you take wow heros one and all

A Wild but Just Possible Scenario, entitled

CHAZ & The Mayor

(A Fiction)

I’m reckoning that one day in the not-too-distant future, when the CHAZ Summer of Joy, as it were, finally ended on June 26, 2020 — after, say,

17 instances of rape;
23 instances of breaking-and-entering;
11 car crashes, 3 with intent to do bodily harm;
22 instances of assault, aggravated assault, or assault and
battery;
6 instances of firing a deadly weapon without cause within
city limits;
2 instances of suicide;
1 instance of attempted suicide;
2 instances of murder in the 2nd degree; and
1 instance of attempted murder in the 1st degree

— after all that was investigated and done, and the toxicology results — ordered for the mayor, Jenny Durkan, following her admission to the UWMC’s ED after having been discovered lying unconscious by the pool at her home — now being completed are in, TMZ or another news organization might scoop this:

Medical Examiner of King County, Washington

Found, on 24 June 2020, in the serum or plasma of Durkan, Jenny (DOB: 5/19/1958), the following intoxicant(s), pursuant to a broad, unselective, medically ordered toxicology screen:

IDENTIFIED TOXICANT QUANT ASSAY

1) THC-COOH (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol
carboxylic acid) — prime THC metabolite: 642 ng/mL

_________________________________________________________________

WOW! Were this level true and correct (15 ng/mL indicates recent THC consumption; the amount shown is thus extraordinarily elevated), it would explain a great deal about the lack of sound quality and reliable integrity in the mayor’s judgement, and her continuously inaccurate, allegedly negligent assessment of what has been officially determined to be, despite the mayor’s regularly sunny appraisal, the real dangers and harm done to life and property occurring in her city’s Capitol Hill district between 8 and 20 June 2020.

This concludes the present report. In this FICTIONAL SCENARIO, done only in good faith in the hope of achieving a safe, minimally harmful civic outcome w/r/t the former CHAZ and its now- renormalized citizens, streets, businesses, and homes, we wish the mayor and her loving family a speedy, uneventful, and complete recovery.

All Americans continue to wish the citizens of Seattle well. As you have been for weeks, and remain so for weeks and more to come, our prayers and thoughts are with you.

If we’re lucky, we could have a redo of what happened in 1968 – when Dems crashed their own convention! It was a landslide for the GOP, because the Democrat party was so out of control.

The urban Woodstock, with out the music and without the genuine cause.

Is there anyone left who is sane in Seattle? Where is their “silent majority” of law abiding tax paying good citizens? Rise up and remove this moron from office, physically if necessary.
