Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan blamed President Donald Trump for the rising wave of criminal activity and political violence surfacing in her city, claiming that the President had somehow agitated Seattle residents to riot, destroy small businesses, and attack the police.
Seattle police made 45 arrests during a weekend riot on Saturday, in which ANTIFA-linked militants set fires to residential buildings and launched fireworks in a direct attack on a police station. The Democratic city is abolishing its county jail, and crime has increased by 525% since the creation of the since-failed anarchist commune known as CHAZ (Capital Hill Autonomous Zone) in the city’s downtown.
When asked about responsibility for the criminal activity by CNN’s Erin Burnett Monday, the mayor merely blamed Trump and the Department of Homeland Security.
“We don’t need the help that the president’s offering, and, in fact, I think the president’s actions have directly escalated and were responsible for what happened this weekend. Many people who were interviewed by media said they came to the protest because of what’s happening in Portland. The protest itself was billed as something in solidarity with Portland. And so, we are — today, I requested the Department of Homeland Security — since there was no actions directed against the federal properties here — to ask them to remove the standby team that they have.”
Durkan went on to claim DHS operations protecting federal facilities against left-wing militants were a taste of martial law.
“I hate to say it, Erin, but I really believe that we are seeing the dry run for martial law. This is a president that is using law enforcement and federal forces for political purposes, and that should be chilling to every American.”
Seattle residents have already initiated a recall effort against Durkan- for the dismantling of the CHAZ after four murders took place in the left-wing community.
Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Will Begin Teaching at Texas State University in Spring 2021
The Failed Senate Candidate Will Start Indoctrinating College Students Next Year
Former Congressman and failed Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke will start teaching Texas politics at Texas State University during the spring 2021 semester, according to an announcement by the Department of Political Science on October 15, 2020. Although his hire has not been finalized, O’Rourke will join the department to teach an online class.
Political Science Chair Ken Grasso said he talked about potential course material with O’Rourke. The former congressman said he has taken a great interest into Texas politics recently.
“He originally approached people in the administration… and expressed an interest in teaching,” Grasso commented. “I was thrilled. He’s got a unique take on things with his experience as a congressman and as [a] senatorial candidate and even a presidential candidate. So we’re very happy to have him.”
In addition, Grasso claims O’Rourke wants to reach out to young adults and is motivated to teach, above all, during a “crucial time for the state and the country.”
Grasso is of the opinion that the addition of O’Rourke would bring a lot of energy to the political science department.
“I don’t know that so much it’s going to increase enrollments; it’ll certainly increase visibility,” Grasso opined. “That’s always a good thing. We tend to sometimes to get lost in the shadow of other institutions.”
If the Wuhan virus pandemic dies down by spring time, Grasso stated that O’Rourke could potentially do in-person classes. The department aims to limit O’Rourke’s class size in order to promote stronger interactions with students.
Grasso cited O’Rourke’s experience in Congress and the El Paso city council as unique factors that will help students understand Texas politics.
“He’s an actual practitioner out there,” Grasso stated. “You don’t know a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins, and none of us have walked in his moccasins.”
For now, O’Rourke has plans of teaching for the spring 2021 semester but Grasso is optimistic that the university can forge a long-lasting relationship with the former congressman. He believes that this could be “the beginning of a long-term relationship.”
The fact that a darling of the Left and ex-politician is set to be quickly integrated into a major university in Texas just shows how consumed by leftism most American universities have become. O’Rourke will do a fantastic job in propagating political correctness, much to the detriment of his students’ learning experience.
