Sleepless…, uh, I mean Clueless in Seattle!

Seattle, one of the most liberal cities in America, is on the verge of absolutely falling apart.

ablondie 4

It’s like an episode of “The Walking Dead!”

ablondie 9

ablondie 10

The city is being torn apart by those with a brain, and those without a brain.

ablondie 11

According to David Aaro of Fox News, “The leadership in Seattle appeared to be in disarray [Wow! That’s about as nicely as you can describe that situation!] on Friday after the city’s embattled mayor called the protesters who took over an ‘autonomous zone’ in the city ‘patriotic’ while the official who ordered police to flee the nearby precinct has refused to come forward.”

Say what?!

Wow.  These people really do think we’re all as stupid as they are!

ablondie 5

“Despite the slow-moving disaster and protesters calling on Mayor Jenny Durkan and Chief Carmen Best to resign, the mayor resisted the call and raised eyebrows when she joked about considering a ‘Thelma & Louise’ moment in an interview, referring to the 1991 movie about two women on the run from the law.”

Again…, say what?!

They call this an “autonomous zone.”

I would say it’s more like “The Twilight Zone!”

ablondie 7

“At Thursday’s news conference, Best told reporters it wasn’t her decision to leave the precinct, while Durkan also denied responsibility, according to ‘The Stranger,’ a Seattle-based newspaper.”

‘“We were asked to do an operational plan in case we needed to leave,’ Best said. ‘The decision was made. We’re still evaluating about how that change came about but it didn’t come from me.’”

ablondie 8

“Despite the fact that police cannot gain full access to the police station, Durkan tried to downplay the situation on the ground. She claimed that Trump was wrong to call the protesters ‘domestic terrorists.’”

Ha! Ya…, he should’ve included you in that group, Mayor Durkan!

‘“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,’ she said.”

ablondie 6

We would all agree with that, Ms. Mayor…, but what about the slight matters of looting, burning, vandalism…, oh, and forcibly taking over square blocks of a city, along with a police precinct that you seem to have overlooked?

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

ablondie 2

“KIRO 7 reported, citing police, that demonstrators moved barricades near the police station and threw rocks and ‘improvised explosives’ at officers on several occasions. Best reportedly said that 25 cops were injured since the protests began.”

This is what Durkan describes as, “Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color?”

These people have all lost their minds.

This situation with Mayor Durkin, and many other of these liberal mayors as well, reminds me of an old “Blondie” cartoon that I cut out of the newspaper at the time and kept.

ablondie 1

The cartoon showed Blondie’s husband, Dagwood Bumstead, at work talking with his boss, Mr. Dithers.  The cartoon went something like this:

Mr. Dithers: C’mon, Bumstead!  Come out and have a drink with me and the boys before you head home.

Dagwood: Okay, Mr. Dithers…, just let me call Blondie first.

Mr. Dithers: Call Blondie first?!  Aren’t you the boss around your house, Bumstead?

Dagwood:  Of course, I am!

Mr. Dithers: Well, why do you have to call then?

Dagwood:  Because, if I don’t call, Blondie won’t let me be the boss anymore.

I know this correlation is a bit of a stretch, but I hope you can see what I’m referring to here.

The point is, Dagwood isn’t really the one “in charge,” and neither is Mayor Durkin.

‘“You [the police officers] fought [Actually they were prohibited from fighting.  It was more like just standing there, like sitting ducks.] for days to protect (The East Precinct). I asked you to stand on that line. Day in and day out, to be pelted with projectiles, to be screamed at, threatened and in some cases hurt. Then to have a change of course [by their beloved mayor] early two weeks in, it seems like an insult [Oh, it was an insult!] to you and our community,’ Best said in a video, according to the station.”

“On Thursday, the crowd continued to occupy the six-block downtown area, named the ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone’ (CHAZ) because of its location in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.”

ablondie 12

“President Trump told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner in an exclusive interview Thursday that his administration is ‘not going to let Seattle be occupied by anarchists.’”

‘“If there were more toughness, you wouldn’t have the kind of devastation that you had in Minneapolis and in Seattle. I mean, let’s see what’s going on in Seattle,’ Trump told Faulkner. ‘I will tell you, if they don’t straighten that situation out, we’re going to straighten it out.’”

ablondie 3

“It’s clear @realDonaldTrump doesn’t understand what’s happening on five square blocks of our City. Cal Anderson and Capitol Hill has for decades been a place for free speech, community, and self-expression,” Durkan tweeted out in response.

“Durkan has insisted that CHAZ was ‘not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection, but a peaceful expression of the community’s grief following the death of George Floyd in police custody on May 25 in Minneapolis.’”

Just because you say something isn’t what it obviously is doesn’t change the fact that it is what it obviously is, Mayor Durkan.

I hope that makes sense to you…, it makes sense to me.

WINNING!

Stupid is as stupid does…

… but these liberals are dangerous!

adefund 18

There is a growing movement across the US to defund many major metropolitan police departments and get rid of the police, as we know them, altogether.

adefund 1

I guess these big, liberal, cities can do what they want.  I just thank God I don’t live in one of these cities!

These liberals have literally lost their minds.

adefund 12

Who exactly is going to live and reside in these “policeless” cities?

What businesses are going to feel safe operating there?

What about utility services, as well as fire departments and emergency medical services?

What hospitals are going to want to operate in that type of environment?

What law-abiding and decent people are going to want to live in these places with their families?

Who is going to want to risk their lives visiting these places anymore?

adefund 15

The criminal elements in all of these cities must be laughing their a$$es off at these liberal idiots and licking their chops in anticipation of a cop-free environment.

I predict that these major, liberal, cities will become wastelands within a year if they manage to achieve their “policeless” goals.

Have you seen the movie “Escape from New York?”  Well, if you want to see a preview of life in New York City without a police force, watch it.

adefund 10

According to Sam Levin, in Los Angeles, for “The Guardian,” Activists say the way to stop police brutality and killings is to cut law enforcement budgets and reinvest in services.”

“The movement to defund the police is gaining significant support across America, including from elected leaders, as protests over the killing of George Floyd sweep the nation.”

adefund 2

“For years, activists have pushed US cities and states to cut law enforcement budgets amid a dramatic rise in spending on police and prisons while funding for vital social services has shrunk or disappeared altogether.”

“Government officials have long dismissed the idea as a leftist fantasy, but the recent unrest and massive budget shortfalls from the Covid-19 crisis appear to have inspired more mainstream recognition of the central arguments behind defunding.”

“A leftist fantasy?”

More like a social nightmare.

adefund 16

‘“To see legislators who aren’t even necessarily on the left supporting at least a significant decrease in New York police department [NYPD] funding is really very encouraging,’ Julia Salazar, a New York state senator and Democratic socialist, told the Guardian on Tuesday. ‘It feels a little bit surreal.’”

adefund 19

Oh, it’s surreal alright!

I’m also guessing that Ms. Salazar won’t actually be living in these “policeless” areas.

“Floyd’s death on camera in Minneapolis, advocates say, was a powerful demonstration that police reform efforts of the last half-decade have failed to stop racist policing and killings.”

I’m not sure you can lump all police problems into one big racial pile, Mr. Levin.

More than twice the number of whites have died in police custody as opposed to blacks, and many black officers have been involved with these deaths as well.

I’m sure race comes into play occasionally, but for the most part we’re just dealing with a handful of inept and/or uncaring cops who should really be in another line of work.

“Meanwhile, the striking visuals of enormous, militarized and at times violent police forces responding to peaceful protests have led some politicians to question whether police really need this much money and firepower.”

“Violent police forces responding to peaceful protesters?”

Excuse me, Mr. Levin, but are you taking some type of hallucinogenic medication, or are you just being intentionally disingenuous?

I’m guessing the latter.

How many protesters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many looters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many criminal vandals and rioters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, vandals and rioters have been killed by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, and vandals have been injured in some way by the police in response to their actions?

There have undeniably been some…, and probably rightly so.

Overall, I feel the police forces across our nation have shown incredible restraint, unbelievable restraint, when dealing with all of these protesters, looters and rioters.

Now…,

How many cops have been shot during these “protests?”

Over a dozen, and counting.

How many cops have been injured in some way during these “protests?”

Easily in the hundreds, and counting.

If you’d like to see the police officers who have died in the line of duty, just doing their jobs, I’d like to invite you to visit the Ofice Down Memorial Page at https://odmp.org

“Community groups advocating for defunding have put forward differing strategies, some merely opposing police budget increases, others advocating mass reductions, and some fighting for full defunding as a step toward abolishing police forces. Some initiatives are tied to the fight to close prisons. All are pushing for a reinvestment of those dollars in services.”

Abolishing police forces and closing prisons.

Who are running these community groups?

The Joker?

The Penguin?

Lex Luthor?

The Riddler?

I mean, really!

adefund 14

“Amid the protests, some local leaders with budgeting powers have started proposing modest cuts to policing. The most substantial change so far, has come in Minneapolis where the school board on Tuesday voted to end its contract with the police department. The University of Minnesota has also pledged to stop working with police.”

‘“People have been fighting for years to get cops out of schools, and now it’s happening overnight,’ said Tony Williams, a member of MPD150, an abolition group whose literature on building a ‘police-free future’ has spread on social media in recent days. One elected Minneapolis ward member said this week that the city’s police department was ‘irredeemably beyond reform,’ the kind of remark that would until recently have been unthinkable to organizers.”

I don’t believe that the people and students of Columbine High School, Sandy Hook Elementary School, or Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were too upset about the cops being in their schools.

Just sayin’.

adefund 22“Kelly Lytle Hernandez, a UCLA historian and recent MacArthur recipient, said this could be a pivotal moment for the US: ‘We’ve created over the last 30 to 40 years a sense that our safety and wellbeing always comes from investing more and more in police.’”

Well, Miss MacArthur award recipient (let’s just say you won’t see any conservatives winning that award), how else would you recommend spending money to promote safety in our big cities?

I do agree with you, however, that this is “a pivotal moment” for many of our big cities.

Either they can choose to use common sense when approaching these problems, or they can go off the deep end, following these know-nothing, anti-American, liberal pied pipers.

I’m guessing that common sense will not prevail amongst these idiots and liberal provocateurs.

‘“This week, it seems there is increasing recognition of this failure,’ she said, adding, ‘Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation that I’m hoping you’re seeing broad-based support for on the streets today.’”

Well, there you have it.

“Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation.”

Just the first step.

And the “historical transformation” involves the abandoning of our American values and the surrendering of our freedom as we devolve towards a socialistic/communistic/globalistic mess.

Tyler Olson of Fox News adds that, “Several members of the Minneapolis City Council this week have expressed support for radical changes to how the city handles law enforcement, including a move to ‘dismantle’ the police department and replace it with ‘a transformative new model for public safety.’”

Ha!

I’m anxious to see what these daring young fascists have in mind.

“Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and a representative of the city’s Ward 5, explicitly led calls to ‘dramatically rethink’ how the city keeps its people safe.”

adefund 9

‘“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,’ he tweeted. ‘And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response.’”

I’m sure their “rethinking” will include Sharia Law in there somewhere, based on his family’s Muslim background.

“His call was echoed by Lisa Bender, the president of the city council.”

The president of the city council!

adefund 21

‘“Yes,’ she said in response to Ellison. ‘We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.’”

“That was not the first time Bender had addressed calls to ‘dismantle’ the city’s police force this week, however. On Wednesday she posted a thread about how a ‘white person’ should think about dismantling the police.”

I honestly don’t think you’ll have many white people left in your city by that time, but let’s hear it anyway, Ms. Bender.

“If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?  I mean this quite sincerely & seriously: just look at recent conversations about City-funded neighborhood organizations to understand how explicitly we would have to work to establish alternative systems that do not replicate the same problems. White ppl need to show up for this.”

I’m really not sure what to say about this racist individual or her confused train of thought.

I always wonder, “how do all of these idiots get elected?

“According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Bender sees the city’s potentially revamped public safety force as potentially sending social workers or other civilian personnel into situations that are traditionally handled by police.”

Oh, ya…, that’s going to work out real well!

It’s confirmed.  These liberals HAVE all lost their minds…, at least what little minds they had.

Liberal Lunacy 101!

OK…, I’ve enrolled you in this new class.

Welcome to class.

Now let’s get started.

alunacy 7

A few days ago, all of these confused, liberal democrat mayors and all of the equally confused, democrat, “blue state,” governors were only worried about making sure people didn’t gather in churches, that people practiced social distancing and wore masks everywhere, and made sure no one could operate their business…, unless their business’ name was Walmart, Costco, Target, Home Depot, etc.

Apparently, people are immune from the virus in these stores only…, and nowhere else.

Oh…, but now…, what a difference a day, or a couple days, makes.

alunacy 2

George Floyd dies while in police custody, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and this gives “protesters” carte blanche to loot, burn and generally destroy whatever they want to.

alunacy 11

Now here are some real crimes!

All of the liberal, loser, governors and mayors aren’t worried about those “virus violations” now, at least for the time being.

There’s no doubt George Floyd would be alive today, if not for the careless and unnecessary behavior of one or more Minneapolis police officers.

alunacy 12

And these individuals are the ones we and any protesters should be focusing our anger towards…, not the police in general, not the cities in general, and certainly not towards innocent business owners.

alunacy 4

There are bad and misguided people in every line of work and in every type of business and organization, but we don’t hold everyone accountable for the actions of one or a few people, do we?

alunacy 14

And to tell you the truth, this isn’t what’s really happening here, for the most part, anyway.

What’s really happening here is, we have people protesting peacefully during the day, voicing their frustrations with “the system,” and then there are whole other groups of individuals coming out at night, who could care less about George Floyd, but who just generally want to cause unrest and damage things, and others who just want to take advantage of the situation in order to loot any businesses they can in order to get free stuff.

alunacy 5

alunacy 1

alunacy 16

The people just trying to get stuff for free I can understand…, but what about these people burning down buildings and generally destroying their neighborhoods and cities?

alunacy 13

This group can be further broken down into a few more sub-groups.

The first group are just the idiots that enjoy wrecking anything they can just because that’s how they get their rocks off. The enjoy getting back at “the man,” and inflicting pain on anything and anybody in an attempt to ease their own frustration.

alunacy 10

I’m not a licensed psychoanalyst, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before.

The next group are those individuals who are being paid and directed to cause this destruction by individuals who hate America, and will do anything to cause problems in our country.  And don’t think these people don’t really exist, because they do…, and they’re aligned with the anti-American democrat party.

alunacy 9

Then, there are the attention starved, liberal fools, who make themselves easy pawns to get sucked in by the before mentioned group, in order to help them create their havoc.

This is where these idiotic liberal tools…, these liberal mayors and governors have a hard time understanding what’s really going on.

They’re afraid to do anything about the rioters at night because they’re afraid they’ll be seen as infringing on these peoples’ right to protest, when in reality, the people at night could care less about protesting.

Oh, sure, you’ll see a person with some feeble sign here or there, or someone yelling at the cops, but these are a few out of a hundred…, and believe me, the other ones who are burning buildings and police cars, throwing rocks, and looting, appreciate them for providing cover for their criminal activities. Some of these “protesters” are even planted there by the ne’er-do-wells themselves.

All in all, these liberal mayors can at least take comfort in knowing that they won’t have to worry about many of the businesses in their city wanting to open up anymore!

And most of the rioters were wearing masks, after all!

We wouldn’t want any of our friendly neighborhood vandals catching the virus while they’re busy expressing their frustration by destroying our city!

Social media is getting pretty antisocial!

According to Subrat Patnaik and Shubham Kalia for Reuters, “Twitter hid a tweet from President Donald Trump on Friday, accusing him of breaking its rules by ‘glorifying violence’ in a message that said looters at protests in Minneapolis would be shot.”

That doesn’t sound like “glorifying violence…,” it sounds like a warning or a threat.

atweet 17

“Twitter’s decision to step in, at a time of racially charged civil unrest in cities across the United States, escalates a feud between [President] Trump and tech companies.”

“It came just hours after Trump signed an executive order threatening Silicon Valley social media firms with new regulations [guaranteeing] free speech.”

‘“…These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!’ [President] Trump’s tweet read.”

atweet 2

“[President] Trump’s message can now be seen only after clicking on a notice which says: ‘This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.’”

So nice of you to allow us to see what our President has to say!

Where the hell are we?!

We are still living in America, aren’t we?

atweet 13

This is beginning to sound like more and more like George Orwell’s book, “1984.”

atweet 8

It took a little longer than George thought, but it is happening.

“1984” is a dystopian novel by English novelist George Orwell.

A dystopia is a community or society that is undesirable or frightening. It is a state or society where there is great suffering or injustice.

The book was published in 1949, and centers on the consequences of government over-reach, totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of all persons and behaviors within society.

The story takes place in an imagined future, the year 1984, when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, a distortion of the historical record, and propaganda.  The “thought police” are employed there as well.

“1984” popularized the adjective “Orwellian,” which represents things such as official deception, secret surveillance, brazenly misleading terminology, and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian or authoritarian state.

atweet 16

Is all of this starting to sound familiar?

“Twitter said it had taken its action over the Trump tweet ‘in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts.’”

Oh…, of course…, it was in our best interests, for our own safety, for our own good.

That’s what the Nazis told the Jews as the forced them from their homes.

atweet 4

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and liberal political activist, Colin Kaepernick, recently tweeted about the Minneapolis riots, “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”

atweet 3

Now there’s a tweet that seems to be “glorifying violence.”

atweet 9

Where’s the notice that this tweet violated Twitter’s rules?

We all know Twitter is just fine with Kaepernick’s tweet, but all up in arms over President Trump’s tweet.

atweet 7

There are hundreds of millions of tweets every day.

This is targeted censorship.  I guarantee you that I could tweet the exact same thing President Trump did and there would be no warning or disclaimer attached to my tweet.

In fact, I can guarantee you there are tens of thousands of untruthful tweets and tweets promoting violence out there that will never be flagged.

The only tweets that will be flagged are those which, by flagging them, will advance the liberal narrative.

There’s no real concern about safety or truthfulness.

It’s ALL about advancing the liberal narrative.

atweet 15

On a side note…, Twitter is based in…, where else but…, in San Francisco, California!

Well, who’da thunk it?

atweet 12

Where else would the liberal word and thought police be headquartered?

WINNING!

atweet 5
