The same woman who marched a crowd of protesters to the Seattle Mayor’s residence (see below) is now threatening Jeff Bezos and capitalism.

Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant delivers a message after passing the “Amazon Tax” at a digital city council meeting on Monday.

“I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class. If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to beat you. And we will not stop there.”

“You see, we are fighting for far more than this tax. We are preparing the ground for a different kind of society, and if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it. Because we are coming for you and your rotten system. We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, violent, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism. This police state. We cannot and will not stop until we overthrow it and replace it with a world based, instead, on solidarity, genuine democracy, and equality: a socialist world. Thank you.”


Councilmember Sawant recently marched a pack of protesters to the mayor’s home:

Things got real for Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan recently when a CHOP mob, led by a city councilmember, marched to her home with a list of demands. This was after Durkan finally called for the CHOP area to be shut down.

Until then, Durkan had a hands-off approach to the takeover of several blocks in the city. She had described the anarchy as a “summer of love” while it was anything but that. Crime skyrocketed in the area, and residents have sued the city for its negligence in protecting its citizens.

After the incident, Mayor Durkan released a statement that is full of irony:

“Instead of working to make true change, Councilmember Sawant continues to choose political stunts. Tonight she did so without regard for the safety of the Mayor and her family. The Mayor was not even home — she was working at City Hall. Seattle can and should peacefully demonstrate but should not put families and children at risk.”

Durkan suddenly didn’t like it when the protesters came to her doorstep because she says they “put families and children at risk.” What about the families and children who live in the six-block area that was taken over by the mob? Didn’t the mayor put those people at risk?

There have been three deaths in the CHOP area of Seattle, but this leftist mayor only sits up and notices when the mob comes to her door:

“Seattle can and should peacefully demonstrate but should not put families and children at risk.”
