Today’s quote comes to us from jenny durkan, the Mayor of Seattle, Washington.
Before showing you durkan’s quote, please read this, from Elise Takahama’s article for the Seattle Times:
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best revealed at a Wednesday news conference that police discovered explosives, smoke bombs and other weapons in a van stationed at the weekend protests.
Saturday’s demonstration, promoted by the Youth Liberation Front in support of protesters in Portland, erupted in violence. Best said over the weekend that officers used blast balls, pepper spray and 40mm sponge-tip rounds, while some in the crowd of protesters broke windows and started fires. At one point, she said, someone threw an explosive that blew an 8-inch hole through a wall of the Police Department’s East Precinct.
Now that you know what was happening in Seattle last weekend…
…and keeping in mind that this is the culmination of over two months of non-stop carnage in that city, which durkan first referred to as nothing more than “a summer festival” and then allowed to escalate to the point where federal agents had to be sent in…
please read Mayor durkan’s assessment of the current situation, which she graced us with during Monday’s Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC:
“I hate to say it, but it looks like this president is doing a dress rehearsal for martial law, sending in federal forces to take over police duties in city after city for political purposes. It is frightening and it’s making things worse. It has not improved public safety, it has decreased public safety.”
That’s it? That’s the explanation for two months of allowing Seattle to be taken over by antifa anarchists, “Black Lives Matter” radicals and street thugs? To blame President Trump???
As regular readers of this blog know, I have been calling jenny durkan the idiot Mayor of Seattle.
I award durkan Quote Of The Day honors for, again, demonstrating why I do so.
