A post of mine keeps getting removed by a moderator.... although on topic regarding my thoughts on CHAZ, and a direct historically accurate response to a question..... so not sure how I can reply to any other direct questions on this thread.

I'll just keep trying...

If you had a question for me, please ask again and I'll try a newly re-worded response that may not be as offensive to sensitive liberals views.



This is cute....

The valiant social warriors courageously taking over parts of the decrepit, degenerate capitalist society and naming it the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone are Heros of the Peoples' Revolution!

BWHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

All kinds of crimes and destruction of public property can be done and after intimidating the local politicians, there will be no consequences! No jail! The local political leaders are with you! The laws don't apply to you! And don't worry we're going to sock it to Roger Stone, Flynn and those other bastards!

The Tide Pod generation creates their own nation with their own laws.  
Two shootings. Segregation. Warlords. Hunger. Poverty.

They should charge for pay-per-view surveillance cameras, or make a reality show out of it.


Edit to add, 6/23: 
And now there's a 3rd shooting:

New #CHAZ/#CHOP list of updated terms:

Theft = unplanned donation

Bullet wound = unexpected body modification

Rape = unanticipated sexual sharing

Police officer = bastard

2) You drink Starbucks instead of grinding your own fair trade coffee

3) You don’t self-flagellate before bed to atone for existing in a capitalist society

Ugh. Snipping a lot of this, but going to comment on something that stuck out to me:

Did someone on reddit really NON JOKINGLY just say that some disadvantaged person may have needed YOUR PERSONAL ITEMS MORE? Does that make stealing okay?

Isn't that literally how all other stealing goes. Someone else needs the items more then me, or at least that's how they perceive it, and then they take it and sell it (or use it)

Sigh.

The thread must have been taken down since but you will see a mention of it on these feeds.

Quote
https://www.rt.com/usa/491883-seattle-autonomous-zone-anarchy/

Enforcing private property rights in an anarchist utopia has proven difficult. One of the CHAZ occupiers took to Reddit over the weekend to complain that their tent had been looted and their laptop stolen, along with $400 in cash. The CHAZ community quickly stepped in to reassure the victim that “a disadvantaged resident was in greater need of the items than you,” and to think of the theft as an “unplanned donation.”

I read an article saying a large portion of CHAZ 'residents' were fleeing the zone because of the high amount of crime and violence inside the No-Cop zone.

These kids cannot even see their own irony.

('Kids'- can also include Liberals in this context)



I had someone ask me the other day "How do you know which side are the good guys?" I told her it's usually the side that doesn't support burning buildings, erasing history, attacking the police, race baiting, taking away your rights and silencing free speech.

Yep, they're finally leaving. The Mayor of Seattle urged protesters to leave after things got violent with back to back shootings, one resulting in a fatality. It strikes me as odd that she referred to CHOP as a peaceful block party but now that things predictably went south, she's calling for protesters to dissipate.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/24/us/seattle-autonomous-zone-protesters-leaving/index.html

Most protesters are leaving on their own, and I'm sure the organizers of CHOP will consider their LARPing fantasy a success.

I've seen maybe a handful of articles like this, but the majority of them aren't saying such. All the media wants to report on is the fact that they're holding a few peaceful speeches and all about how they're developing a new community without law enforcement involved.

The media really should be showing the issues that are present in this 'new society' instead of just trying to skew the argument by JUST showing the 'amazing' of this society.

I can't believe people accepted that 6 blocks of a MAJOR US CITY was taken over by people and no one did a thing. Seattle flees. Interesting. I'd think that Trump would have the support of popular opinion of stopping this if it happened in DC.

Well..... its an election year.   And like we saw last election, the left has to get violent to "have their voices heard."
It wasn't enough last time, so they saw the error in their ways and have to scream louder.
They think they're making a point or expressing their views...... but the majority of Americans see the obvious. That they're discrediting their views by their actual actions. This will only encourage more voting AGAINST them.

The majority of Americans voted for no one last time. They chose not giving a crap over either candidate, because it didnt have that much effect on their personal life.  I think that'll will change a bit more this time, now that the innocent and indifferent have had their cities burned, cars pelted, and safety challenged.

Just look at RGR stock (Ruger gun company)... stock prices went from $38 to $73 in a matter of two months. Because everyone is buying guns, gun sales are soaring. Not because leftists are arming themselves against the government. But because everyone is arming themselves fearing a leftist mob will attack them.

Last time? 2016 turnout was 55%, typical for a presidential election. So most people did vote for someone.

Right.  Try that math again.


Of registered voters:
Maybe 20-22% voted for Trump
Maybe 20-22% voted for Killary
Maybe 2% voted for 3rd party independent
45% voted for no one

"Neither"  was the largest segment of registered voters.


(Not diggin up exact numbers for this, its quite obvious)

Can we talk for a moment about how low this really is. Like we had the two most hated candidates going up against one another. Each party beleives that they have the most to lose if the other candidate is elected and only a little bit more then half of people show up to vote.

Probably not going to change during this election cycle TBH. We'll have the same numbers, and the people that aren't voting are going to be the same people complaining that the system is flawed.

God if I another few percent of people voted, they could change the fate of elections. 2016 election was probably decided by like 150k total votes (spread across a few battleground / swing states - PA, WISC, FLORIDA, etc)

Hmmm...I heard the authorities there were looking at chatter among some "Oath keepers,Vets,Ex police,Bikers and "concerned citizens" forming a posse and heading down to CHAZ for a day out as is their constitutional right.Its illegal to send the uniforms in without permission but its not illegal for some tough doods to have a day out on "public property".

I imagine there was a panic in order to save all the soy boys,cucks,rabid feminists,militant lesbians and the other bullies from finding out what happens when people fight back.Trump never fails to entertain us while he drains the swamp  Grin Grin



Quote
A real-life modern-day “Mad Max” scenario is about to play out in Seattle. A group of patriot bikers and oath keepers are planning a ride to the anarchist-dominated “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) to retake that part of the city and hand back the Seattle Police East Precinct to city cops.

Although no implications of violence were stated, the likelihood of Antifa goofs going peacefully remains to be seen, especially given the seemingly unstable, crazed craniums which decided to wrest away the six-block tract from the city. Then again, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best didn’t appear to put up much of a fight, calling it “meeting peace with peace.” It has been anything but!  So much for elected and appointed officials standing up for taxpayers who in effect own the East Precinct and now have zero privilege to walk public streets taken hostage by unruly barbarians. However, that is soon to meet its end.

According to the Conservative Firing Line, “the group ‘American Patriots Retake the Seattle Occupation Zone for America’ plans a 4th of July event to remove the barricades, rescue the folks trapped, and clean up the mess left by Antifa/Black Lives Matter activists in the zone now being called CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone).”

"Neither"  was the largest segment of registered voters.

It's misleading to call it a "majority" in election context, which typically means >50%. What you're describing is usually called a "plurality" when talking about elections.

God if I another few percent of people voted, they could change the fate of elections. 2016 election was probably decided by like 150k total votes (spread across a few battleground / swing states - PA, WISC, FLORIDA, etc)

It was ~80k votes across PA, MI, and WI that made the difference. I don't know if "few percent" would be enough to change it. 5% of additional voters would need to vote ~60:40 against the otherwise-winning candidate to overcome even a tiny 1% winning margin. Sounds unlikely unless all those additional votes come from a largely atypical voter demographic, like millennials, and you know how I feel about those lazy bastards. They wouldn't show up to vote even if you handed out participation-trophy-shaped avocado toast at the polls.

It's also a bit weird to say "the majority of Americans voted for no one." That makes it sound like they walked into the voting booth and wrote in "No One."

The majority of voters actually voted for Hillary.

I have to take that back; the 3rd parties + Trump beat out Hillary.

Hmmm...I heard the authorities there were looking at chatter among some "Oath keepers,Vets,Ex police,Bikers and "concerned citizens" forming a posse and heading down to CHAZ for a day out as is their constitutional right.Its illegal to send the uniforms in without permission but its not illegal for some tough doods to have a day out on "public property".

I imagine there was a panic in order to save all the soy boys,cucks,rabid feminists,militant lesbians and the other bullies from finding out what happens when people fight back.Trump never fails to entertain us while he drains the swamp  Grin Grin...

Okay, I somehow find this interesting!

"Neither"  was the largest segment of registered voters.

It's misleading to call it a "majority" in election context, which typically means >50%. What you're describing is usually called a "plurality" when talking about elections.

It's also a bit weird to say "the majority of Americans voted for no one." That makes it sound like they walked into the voting booth and wrote in "No One."

The majority of voters actually voted for Hillary.

I have to take that back; the 3rd parties + Trump beat out Hillary.

Both of you are playing cute word games....

I originally wrote "The majority of Americans voted for no one last time." which is factually and contextually correct. Apparently that wasn't blatantly obvious enough for you two.

Your coming up with wordy BS to cover your own ignorance is nothing short of amazing.

It's not, unless you count kids.

Population: ~320 million
Voting age population: ~250 million
Voting age population who didn't vote: ~110 million
(it's even less if you adjust for inmates and non-citizens)

Calling that a majority is highly irregular - that's why it caught my eye.

I appreciate that you care so much about us simpletons and blessed us with this diagnosis.

It's really cute how you try to pick flyshit out of pepper.  I even explained the easy-to-understand sentence in the following post. Apparently still not clear enough, let me direct your attention to a pie chart in the sky:

Look up, draw an imaginary circle. Thats voters.   Now draw a line down the center, bisecting the circle into two halves.  
Next...in one... only one of those halves, bisect it again. But not the other original half.
You should be left with a pie chart depicting 1/2, 1/4 & 1/4.    Or in pie chart terms 50%, 25%, 25%.

Now assign some labels to those sections.  The big part being the half or 50%, write CHOSE TO NOT VOTE.   Then in the remaining smaller sections, being the 1/4's or 25%'s, write Trump in one, and Killary in the other.

Now, step back an marvel at the creation.   Which is bigger?    

American voters, in their choice of the 3, (no one, Killary, trump), the majority chose no one.

If that's still causing trouble for you, PM me your address, and I'll mail you a crayon drawing.
