President Trump Finally Reveals The Real Reason Seattle Mayor Took Down CHOP Zone
(Tea Party 247) – One of the most bizarre situations to unfold this year, and given the vast amount of strangeness that’s occurred over the last several months, that’s really saying something, is no doubt the CHOP Zone in Seattle, Washington. You know, when a bunch of liberal soy drinking “freedom fighters” banneded together for a month and took over six-city blocks of the downtown area and transformed it into a nightmare.
It essentially became a little petrie dish for a socialist experiment, which failed miserably and imploded in violence, anarchy, and destruction. People died. Women were sexually assaulted. And there was no police available to help because they ran them off.
This went on for a month. A MONTH. And no one bothered to stop it. Mayor Jenny Durkan did nothing to end the shenanigans and it cost two teenagers their lives. Finally, she declared the gathering “unlawful” and sent in the police who cleared the area in 8 minutes with little fanfare.
Well, President Trump finally revealed to Sean Hannity the real reason that Mayor Durkan decided to clear out the CHOP Zone.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
During their discussion Sean Hannity asked President Trump about rumors he heard about the president warning the Seattle Mayor about the CHOP Zone in Seattle.
Sean Hannity: I had a source that told us but have not been able to confirm it the the reason the Seattle Mayor finally acted was because they were given notice that if they didn’t act that you were going to. Is there any truth to that?
President Trump: 100%. We were going in very soon. We let them know that. And they all of the sudden they didn’t want that. So they went in before we got there. But we were going in very shortly.
Here’s more on the clearing out of the CHOP Zone From KING5 News:
A total of 25 people were arrested overnight in the area of Broadway and East Pine as protests continued after police dismantled the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” zone (CHOP).
Police used blast balls and pepper spray while making arrests, after people in the crowd began throwing bottles at officers, according to the department.
Demonstrators continued to march and protest on Capitol Hill, downtown Seattle, and some marched to Mayor Jenny Durkan’s house.
The Seattle Police Department moved into the CHOP around 5 a.m. Wednesday and returned to the East Precinct after abandoning the building nearly three weeks ago.
Officers arrested at least 44 people on Wednesday for failure to disperse, obstruction, resisting arrest, and assault. However, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said she recommended the city not file charges against misdemeanor arrests from Wednesday morning.
Durkan issued a 48-hour executive order for protesters to vacate the area due to the ongoing violence and public safety issues in the area of the East Precinct and Cal Anderson Park. Mayor Durkan’s order declared the gathering as an “unlawful assembly” that required immediate action.
“These acts of violence hurt our whole community and they are also in direct contrast to the message ringing from the streets that Black lives matter,” Durkan said during a briefing after the operation.
It’s not hard to believe at all that Durkan wouldn’t act unless pushed by President Trump’s, uh, let’s call it “prompting” to actually get off her backside and do something about the chaos engulfing her city. Clearly, Durkan feared doing the right thing would make her appear racist and put a damper on her political aspirations. Because that’s what these folks really care about. How they can get ahead and take power for themselves.
Let’s hope that if a situation like that ever happens again, mayors aren’t as lax as Durkan and require the president to motivate them to do their jobs.
