Declared three weeks ago by radical leftists as CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, rechristened CHOP, the Capitol Hill Occupation Protest, the six-block enclave inside Seattle ceased to exist July 1. The cops shut it down.

As Marx said, history repeats itself, first as tragedy then as farce.

They’re not “winning”. Common Sense is conceding.

We will see about that.

“Hard to believe. Statues of Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant and Theodore Roosevelt are dragged down, while the murals and graffiti of misfits who trashed downtown Seattle are to be preserved.”

As Levin noted yesterday, these Bernie supporters and racist BLM terrorists aren’t tearing down these historical giants, they’re tearing down what they stood for ... what they created as the American Republic. This is what the Democrat/Left hates (in addition to hating Americans in general).

It’s scary that one of our two major political parties now supports rioting and looting as a way to get what they want. What’s really scary is that they could win.

> The shooting death of a 16-year-old and critical wounding of a 14-year-old on Monday finally forced the mayor’s hand.

BS. It was only when she was personally threatened that she acted. Dead kids had nothing to do with it.

Support? They CONTROL it.

Like Hitler controlled the Sturmabteilung.

Of course we all know what happened to them once they outlived their usefulness.

We haven’t started shooting them in their faces and necks yet.. so they haven’t “won” anything.

>>Is shooting car jackers wrong?<<

It depends on the color of the jacker and the victim.

White* victim + black jacker = no

Any other combo = ok

*per leftist guidelines, “white”=not black irrespective of color/ethnicity

Gun shops all over America are winning. At my local store, they sell out of entry level pistols as soon as they arrive. I sweet-talked them into holding one for me, which they didn’t really want to do. These young punks, especially the ones dripping with white priviledge, have no idea what they are doing. Even my wife wants a gun. As long as it’s cute. And pink.

I agree. Normal, decent people see this and don’t like it. Now it’s a matter of them voting the right way.

My single daughter lives and works in Portland. She was to be married soon, but when the lockdown came her fiance started freaking out and doing random weird things. She finally found out he is Bi-polar and was experiencing a manic state. He moved out and they broke up, two weeks later her 14 year old dog died.

She decided there and then to sell her house, got two $50,000 over asking price offers in less than a week, one is in backup. She is staying with a friend while the house is for sale. Found out yesterday, it got broke into, stole a bunch of her personal items but no jewelry or the stagers furniture. They partied in her house most of the night, found cigarette butts in the sink and pea in the toilet. Did no physical damage, thank God.

She is not looking to buy another house in Portland now, she filed a police report, but they sounded not impressed or concerned at all. A single woman without a dog now, has her house broken into in the middle of the night, she is thinking about alternatives to Portland and is wanting law and order, she may even vote for Trump to get it.

They could win because the other party is supine.

Hoping that normal Virginians turn the State red. I don’t think any of them saw the fall of Richmond coming.
