Things got real for Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan 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.”
