It seems like the news of Antifa radical leftists taking over about six blocks of Seattle has gotten a fair amount of news and declared it the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ.
We reported about it when the seized the area and forced the police out, with police abandoning the East Precinct which the leftists have now declared a community center. The leftists then set up barricades to block people from coming in, with armed people alleged manning them.
As we wrote earlier, they immediately ran into trouble, just two days in, with one member tweeting out that they’d had all their food eaten/taken by homeless people and that they in need of more food, thus demonstrating early on the basic failure of their system.
But it got worse. There are now reports of an armed “warlord” taking over and acting in a police capacity, which allegedly included beating up some guy for tagging graffiti on a building in the “free” autonomous zone.

Policing in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone by @RazSimone. There appear to be no body cameras, reports, or oversight and accountability. This was an attempt at de-escalation for spraying paint onto a building which resulted in an alleged assault. #chaz #FreeCapitolHill pic.twitter.com/dI1J6QNcpn

That is for the community to decide. That “tagger” was intentionally being subversive in his actions.

Apparently being ‘subversive’ allegedly earns a beating. Almost sounds like ‘police’ brutality.
But guess what? In the midst of all this insane leftist nonsense disrupting the city and taking over a police precinct, it’s good to know that the leaders in Washington state are clearly on the job to deal with it all.
Oh wait. Maybe not.
A reporter asked Washington’s Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee for his opinion about what was going on with the autonomous zone in Seattle.
Here’s his unbelievable response:
Gov. Inslee on so-called "autonomous zone" on Capitol Hill:

That’s “news to me,” Inslee said. He also claimed he had not heard anything about it from any “credible source.”
So either he’s the most ignorant worst governor in the country (and that’s saying something with Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer, New York’s Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey’s Phil Murphy) or he’s just a straight up liar trying to deflect the question. Either way, the response is just ridiculous.
So I guess if the question is what is the government going to do about radical insurrectionists taking over six city blocks and forcing the cops out, Inslee’s answer tells you all you need to know. They’re going to do absolutely nothing, hoping it goes away until it becomes so bad someone has to respond, just like with Occupy and take them down.
“That’s news to me.”
