Tucker Carlson, Hannity expose CHAZ hypocrisy, insanity
Calling the occupation group in Seattle “losers,” Sean Hannity’s monologue last night blasted the mayor of Seattle, the governor of Washington and the self-styled Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, also known as CHAZ.
The mayor and governor compelled police to abandon their precinct station house, which prompted protestors to occupy a six-block portion of downtown Seattle that has been renamed CHAZ.
“Once again, a big liberal city has completely now lost control of what is a critical situation …” Hannity said. “Look what’s going on in Seattle. It is so bad that a bizarre group of these loosely affiliated anarchists and other losers have literally now taken over six city blocks in one of Seattle’s most prominent neighborhoods.
“Dozens of homes, now under siege without any police protection,” he continued. “A police precinct is now under anarchist control.”
In fact, police allege that occupiers-anarchists are now exacting protection fees from local businesses and manning armed check points.
Reports KOMO News:
“While Washington is an open carry state, there is no legal right for those arms to be used intimidate community members,” [Assistant Police Chief Deanna] Nolette said.
Nolette said operating a citizen checkpoint on a public street is illegal.
“We have heard anecdotally of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area; this is crime of extortion,” Nolette said.
But Hannity wasn’t the only Fox host to call out the fools in the city.
Tucker Carlson mocked “CHAZ” as the “latest addition to the global family of nations,” noting that despite their so-called progressive ideology, “the first thing they did was establish rigid national borders. They built a wall around the place just like Donald Trump once said he would do.”
Later Carlson’s guest, Seattle Police Officers Guild president Michael Solan, said he was embarrassed to even be a Seattle resident.
“It’s the closest I’ve seen to our country becoming a lawless state,” said Solan.
“So where is the reasonableness here?” he asked. “Where is the safety of the reasonable community of the city of Seattle? To me, that is absolutely appalling, and I am embarrassed being a Seattle resident to even talk about this.”
The mainstream media has helped the police retract the statement about armed men patrolling the street.
“[C]laims that bands of militant Antifa members are roving the Seattle streets appear to be grossly exaggerated in right-wing media,” reports CNN. “In fact, according to the Seattle mayor’s office, city officials haven’t seen any evidence to indicate armed members of Antifa are even on the ground.”
Yet evidence on social media mounts that protestors are armed and patrolling the streets of CHAZ.
Soon, it may no longer be a laughing matter.
The police are saying that “911 calls from CHAZ, Seattle’s Autonomous Zone, have tripled. Calls pertaining to ‘rapes, robberies and all sorts of violent acts’ are going unanswered, because the good people of CHAZ have disbanded the police.”
At some point, however, someone will have to do something. It would have been better for the mayor, the governor, police and the city if they hadn’t done nothing at the beginning.
