Looks like Antifa now has a state

Post by Greg » Wed Jun 10, 2020 4:58 am

Only a few people seem to be reporting on this, but it looks like the Seattle gov't has ceded part of the city to Antifa, which has now taken it over as its own territory.

I think if they are taking territory and fortifying, that means the boogaloo is on?

If they declare themselves a state, then war can be declared against them. Put a 2000 lb JDAM into the police building they took over.

They seem to be forgetting (probably because the state and local politicians where they prefer to operate tend to coddle them and pander to them) that a monopoly on organized violence is the whole reason that nation states exist. And that it's what they are best at.

I'm pretty sure that's treason against the State of Washington and against the United States.

I would say round up a group of Patriotic militia members from the common folk of Seattle to fix the issue. But I think both of those guys are on vacation.

This cannot end well, no matter how it ends.

These guys are fools. A coffee bar + capitalism must end? They're delusional.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

Not that I would advocate such a thing, but a .22LR into each of the transformers supplying the "nation" could have interesting effects.
