    "Council member Sawant let protesters into City Hall to show it belongs to the people

    SEATTLE - Seattle City Council Member Kshama Sawant says she did nothing wrong, and the bold move was intended to uplift the diverse voices of protesters.

    Sawant used her keys to open the doors and allowed protesters to enter City Hall Tuesday night. Sawant says she did it to show City Hall belongs to the people and she wanted the diverse group of demonstrators to be heard in the halls of power.

    More than 1,000 protesters spent an hour talking about defunding the Seattle Police Department, banning chemical weapon use by police, and railing on Mayor Jenny Durkan, demanding she step down immediately.

    Who is Kshama Sawant? :dunno:


    "Kshama Sawant (/ʃʌmɑː sɑːˈwʌnt/; born October 17, 1973)[1][2] is an American politician and economist who serves on the Seattle City Council. She is a member of Socialist Alternative. A former software engineer, Sawant became an economics instructor in Seattle after immigrating to the United States from her native India.

    What is the "Socialist Alternative"?

    "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".[1]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialist_Alternative_(United_States) "


    Trotskyist? What does that mean?


    "Trotskyism is the theory of Marxism as advocated by the Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky. Trotsky identified as an orthodox Marxist and BolshevikLeninist. He supported founding a vanguard party of the proletariat, proletarian internationalism and a dictatorship of the proletariat based on working class self-emancipation and mass democracy. Trotskyists are critical of Stalinism as they oppose Joseph Stalin's theory of socialism in one country in favor of Trotsky's theory of permanent revolution. Trotskyists also criticize the bureaucracy that developed in the Soviet Union under Stalin.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trotskyism"

    So, a communist from India allowed her fellow communists to take over an American city hall of a major American city.

    She wouldn't open the doors for a gun-rights protest no matter how racially and ethnically diverse it was.

    Long conversation with one of my liberal neighbors who completely supports the looting, burning and destroying of "the man's America" because of a sense of victimhood that permeates the left.

    They will learn nothing from this and will keep voting for people who say they will "give them stuff."

    Victimhood and entitlement is their mantra.

    The fact that all the rioting destroyed the communities, homes and businesses of the very people who are being described as the victims? She felt that made an even stronger case FOR the riots.

    I have had keys for many buildings, businesses, others homes. It was always with understanding. Anyone I let in I am responsible for their behavior, actions.

    If it’s any question I call the person In charge to get permission. I make sure things are back In order before I lock up.
    She is responsible for ever bit of damage. Just as I would be up until I tried to order them out, to stop.

    Has she given anything to the cause? She could set her car on fire and break some windows in her home. Bash herself with a skateboard.

    Just wonder if the people of Seattle want their 6 sq. blocks back? The mayor should be forced to state her position: Are you for the anarchists or against them? The police chief (what a joke) should go in and take back the commandeered real estate or resign.

    Conditions will NEVER get better for the police in this socialist city. If they're smart they will start putting together their resumes for other depts. Depts that will respect them. May not pay as well as Seattle but there's more to a job than just the pay.

    She needs to personally be sued, by numerous people, for millions. Her personally. Then a separate suit against the city counsel as a whole.

    Why would you even think this way?

    BTW is this person with keys and an elective office a United States citizen?

    Every time I look at her picture, she reminds me of this terrorist:

    When I asked if the riots were to come into our neighborhood and destroy homes, burning and looting, she said we would have deserved it... This community is upscale homes and approaching 40% black.

    She's the Indian AOC. Majored in economy, but is a Socialist. It's very clear our colleges are massively failing us. That was the main thing I learned upon graduating.
