Ridiculous things are a common occurrence in Washington D.C., but come 2018 one hotel will take it up a notch by providing a politically themed hotel for “the resistance.”
According to Fox News, a chain of hotels called the “Eaton Workshop” will be “built around community engagement and integrating a liberal philosophy into every aspect of the guest experience.”
The hotel will act as a hub for leftist activists, including video making services and poster board crafting for all those professional protesters. Essentially, this is a fancy occupy camp:
Katherine Lo, the founder of Eaton Workshop, told Bloomberg that the Washington location will include amenities that cater to public activism including TED Talks-inspired fireside chats and lectures, co-working space for progressive startups, activists, and artists, a writer’s residency, where investigative reporters can pursue stories and a multimedia studio where artists can create short films, podcasts, and other content in line with Eaton’s philosophy.
The lobby of the hotel will contain footage from the presidential elections of 2012 and 2016 posing the question: “How did our country get where it is today?” The minibar will include an activist toolkit that will include information on how to contact your congress member as well as material for making posters for demonstrations, Newsweek reported.
“And if we’d been open during this year’s Women’s March, I could have seen us putting poster boards and markers in the rooms,” Lo said.
The chain of hotels will also include locations in Hong Kong, San Francisco, and Seattle by 2019 according to Fox News. Each will have a different theme. The one in Washington is supposed to be the antithesis to the Trump hotel, while the one in Hong Kong will reportedly replace Bibles with copies of the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights.
The hotels will reportedly hire workers based on their activist history and not just their previous work in the service industry where one earns merit.
I for one am ecstatic about this hotel’s opening. I expect consistent complaints about the staff, trash everywhere, and at some point, I imagine they’ll have to set up rooms where women can go to in order to escape rape. As we’ve continuously seen throughout leftist history, anywhere they dominate a space, it turns into a giant pile of crime and disease.
So this should be fun to watch.
