First of all Gateway Pundit.

Second of all, supported by Tweets.

Third of all ... feeds right into the right-wing narrative fearmongering.

Here's information from the neighborhood:



“The decision has been made to allow demonstrators to march past the East Precinct later today,” an announcement sent to department staff about the decision to close the building read. “Additional measures are currently underway to enhance our ongoing efforts to insure the security of our East Precinct and provide for the safety of all our officers.”


Capitol Hill Seattle



At 11:20 PM some seven hours after Chief Carmen Best held a hastily arranged press briefing outside the facility, the mayor tweeted that the retreat is “an effort to proactively de-escalate interactions between protestors and law enforcement outside the East Precinct” and said Best had ordered the barricades surrounding the East Precinct removed and secured the building.

“Keeping demonstrations peaceful must be a joint effort between our community members and law enforcement,” Durkan said. “I am hopeful that tonight, with these operational changes, our city can peacefully move forward together.”


So ... once again, Gateway Pundit's garbage gets reported here as fact.

nobody here is interested in the non-crazy world.
All they want is things to be righteously furious about so they don't have to consider their own lives too deeply.

Why would I be furious? I've said if people want to go set up their little self-sustaining commie Utopias, nothing prevents it. The only shame is that they decided to do it by confiscating the property of others.

If they want to try a social experiment like that, they need to go out and buy their own land and buildings and create their own township.

So Antifa is actually the militant arm of Trump?


How else can you explain the wall they put up ...

Form a blockade, problem solved; they'll give up when they get hungry.



Very easy to limit traffic in and out of the local cell towers and jam wifi to land lines and cable.
I bet that will be an option.

Your info is old (11:20pm last night, to be exact), and I am sorry, but Reddit as a source, then a left wing rag, as proof of a non-crazy world....


ROFLMAO


I at least prefaced by saying my source was questionable.

It's a bit like a replay of the Occupy movement. They didn't end playing that one out so well. I wonder if they've learned from that attempt.

Seriously, I would be all for watching a group like this try to realize whatever they think an idealized society would be.

I'd even go so far as to allow them the base means to set up on their own somewhere so long as we could add lots of hidden cameras to the place and study what goes on and create a new reality TV series out of it.

We might learn something, and who knows? They might actually create something viable.

So I'm guessing Krystalnacht is next?

If Trump has his way, yes.

It's in Seattle. Who cares? If they want to let some angry kids run some city blocks, then that's on their mayor and city council. I'm sure they allow urban camping. How different is this really?

I do feel for the people whose lives and property are being impacted though.

11:20 PM last night is "old"? In what way? What's wrong with the description in the article? Please fill us in.

It explains the situation you tried to concoct and present as something completely different than it is. "ANTIFA" has not taken over part of Seattle. If it has prove it.

People on the ground, in Seattle, do not agree.

Reddit is a message board. It's no more politically aligned than ATS is, at least formally.

The thread linked comments from people who are IN SEATTLE, which are at least equal in relevance to your "sources."

So uh. Like, um what’s their end-game? Like what are they doing with this prime real estate? Just curious. Have they stated what they wanna do? Like are they gonna open a B&B or run a socially-distanced night club. Are they making Knick-knacks and Antifa memorabilia patches? Are they serving healthy juice drinks for the kids during reading hour? Like what is goin on there..... ??


Why am I thinking of the Stanford Prison Experiment and smelling weed and coffee? Odd. I’m sure it’ll be fine...

I agree, except all the people who are there on the ground seem to be interested in is protesting. The area (East Precinct) had been under police lockdown previously.

I'm for local determination as long as basic Constitutional rights are upheld. Heck from the British point of view, the American patriots were rabble rousers and terrorists.

uhm, so like, so far they have like a park, or something, lol

This thread was more just satire, hence the question mark after the terrorist label for Antifa. Antifa doesn't really have control of anything. Their lives, their mental state, their finances, or their rooms in their cohabitated dwellings, and mother's basements.

I actually really disagree with labeling Antifa a terrorist organization.

That would mean they are organized. I have seen their meetings, and training vids. They are not an organized bunch.

Kidding, kidding. I know it opens the doors to labeling others in the same light, and wouldn't want myself thrown in with some group, cause I don't believe an opposing view.

It sure as hell is funny watching gryphon get their panties in a bunch, though.
