The Seattle City Council overrode Mayor Jenny Durkan’s veto Tuesday night; vowing to defund their police department by a whopping 50% as the region struggles to crackdown on protests, homelessness, and rampant drug abuse.

“We cannot look away from this and we can no longer accept the status quo if we truly believe that Black lives matter,” Council President Lorena Gonzalez said.

“Everyone deserves to feel safe … Countless videos of Black and brown lives lost here in Seattle and across the country shows us that not everyone feels safe,” González added, according to the Times. “We need public safety that’s centered on harm reduction, not the status quo…When I look back in this moment of time, I want to be able to tell my daughter, who I’m currently holding in my arms, that I did the right thing and that I voted on the right side of history.”

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.14.20

A group of ‘Black Lives Matter’ protesters in Seattle reportedly took to the streets of a quiet residential neighborhood overnight Thursday; demanding residents “give up their homes” to promote social justice.

“Last night a group of anti-gentrification protesters in Seattle marched through a section of town for a couple hours to complain that white people were living on stolen land. Well, not stolen exactly. They aren’t claiming the black people who used to live in this neighborhood were pushed out at gunpoint. But they are claiming that an injustice has taken place because white people are now living in new homes in this formerly black neighborhood,” reports HotAir.

Local officials in Seattle refused to crackdown on protesters occupying the ‘Capital Hill Autonomous Zone’ Friday; referring to the demonstrators as “patriots.”

“It’s simply not true. Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color is not terrorism. It’s patriotism,” said Mayor Jenny Durkan, referring to President Trump’s labeling of the protesters as “domestic terrorists.”

Durkan has previously posted that the protest is “a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world.”
