This wasn't unexpected, NOT! Isn't this one of the antifa "home" cities? We are provably going to see a lot of liberal failures in the next couple of months. Remember, by any means necessary and this has been in the works for a while.

Kshama Sawant is an American politician and economist who serves on the Seattle City Council. She is a member of Socialist Alternative, a democratic socialist party. A former software engineer, Sawant became an economics instructor in Seattle after immigrating to the United States. She ran unsuccessfully for the Washington House of Representatives before winning her seat on the Seattle City Council. She was the first socialist to win a citywide election in Seattle since Anna Louise Strong was elected to the school board in 1916
Socialist Alternative (SA) is a Trotskyist political party in the United States. It describes itself as "a national organization fighting in our workplaces, communities, and campuses against the exploitation and injustices people face every day" and "a community of activists fighting against budget cuts in public services; fighting for living wage jobs and militant, democratic unions; and people of all colors speaking out against racism and attacks on immigrants, students organizing against tuition hikes and war, women and men fighting sexism and homophobia".
Socialist Alternative's highest profile public representative is Seattle City Councilor Kshama Sawant, who was elected in November 2013. It is active in over 50 cities in the United States.

Far left progressives are digging in their heels and their big city utopias are failing spectacularly.
Conservatives in rural America are doing the same and their communities are crumbling as well and being left behind as the world moves into a new age.
How much more obvious can it be?
We need to start coming together to find some middle ground. Neither temperament, whether left or right, can stand on their own.
