On June 14, 2020 Scriberr’s co-founder and field reporter, Kalen D’Almeida was attacked while doing coverage in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) early in the morning.
The zone has been declared “police-free.” D’Almeida’s footage depicted several aspects of the community banding together to help one another.
At first, CHAZ stayed relatively peaceful throughout the day as reports of a “festival-like” vibe started circulating. However, several groups started prowling the streets after dark. Per D’Almeida’s account of the situation, some of the groups were ANTIFA, John Brown Gun Club, and the self-proclaimed “warlord” rapper Raz Simone and his acolytes.
“I was sitting on a couch 40 yards away filming Raz Simone in case anything interesting happened while he was out,” D’Almeida stated. Previously, there had been a number of reports of Simone patrolling the zone with a gun strapped to his leg.
Simone sustained that his actions were peaceful in nature. Nevertheless, several fights took place within his group that ended up being settled by force. D’Almeida and other reporters present recounted that some of Simone’s friends were gathered in a circle staring at something on a cell phone. After spotting D’Almeida, they proceeded to stalk him.
“Give me your phone, show me what’s on your phone, or I’m going to knock you the f*ck out,” one man told D’Almeida.
D’Almedia quickly fled the area after another assailant grabbed him by his jacket collar and threw a punch at the back of his head. He was then surrounded by more assailants which prompted him to escape the zone’s barrier and look for help. The journalist said he yelled for people to get him out of the area but no one responded to his calls.
Although D’Almeida left the CHAZ and informed Seattle authorities about the situation, the assailants continued following him in a Toyota Camry with fully-tinted windows. He claimed that the angry mob demanded he give up his phone and equipment and report to a medical tent for interrogation.
Seattle Police Department were able to peacefully escort D’Almeida back to his hotel.
Thanks to lax policing in leftist-run cities, now there is chaos across the board.
The federal government has been lackadaisical to say the least.
Nonetheless, such incidents showcase how dysfunctional these urban centers are and serve as a warning to people about the dangers of living in these areas.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
