First, let's start with the new name of downtown Seattle. The communist-anarchist terrorists call it "CHAZ" for Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. I've changed the name to "CATZ" for Communist Anarchist Terrorist Zone.
I'm talking, of course, about the new "country" formerly known as Seattle. The domestic antifa terrorists clearly in charge have set up borders, roadblocks and armed guards. They are holding six blocks of an American city hostage as a "no-go zone." There is a wave of robberies, assaults and rapes going on inside that "zone," according to the Seattle police. It's all being run by a "warlord" -- a Soundcloud rapper. You can't make this stuff up.
This insanity is happening in America.
Then there are the liberal and obviously mentally ill politicians in charge. The Democratic governor claims he knows nothing about it. He's doing his best imitation of Sgt. Schultz from the old TV series "Hogan's Heroes" -- "I see nothing. I hear nothing. I know nothing." The governor pretends he doesn't know the biggest city in his state has been seized by communist-anarchist terrorists.
The Democratic mayor of Seattle calls the terrorists "patriotic." I kid you not.
The leading councilperson in Seattle -- also a Democrat -- gave the radical terrorists the keys to city hall.
Now she's demanding the police surrender to the terrorists, while introducing legislation to permanently hand six city blocks to domestic terrorists. The lunatics are running the asylum.
This isn't an American city. It's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
How is this different than a violent bank robbery? When a bank is robbed, do the police surrender and permanently hand the bank to the bank robbers?
How is this different than an Islamic terrorist attack? If Islamic terrorists held a portion of Seattle hostage, wouldn't we send in the U.S. Marines to take it back?
But let me give you the best example of all. Substitute my hometown of Las Vegas for Seattle. Downtown Vegas has been seized and occupied by domestic terrorists. But instead of communist anarchists, these are armed white extremists, Ku Klux Klan terrorists. Just picture that scenario under Democratic former President Barack Obama, with Vegas under the control of a Republican governor, Republican mayor and Republican city council.
Now picture the Republican Nevada governor saying: "What are you talking about? I don't know anything about it. I haven't heard about any takeover." Picture the Republican mayor calling the takeover "patriotic." Picture a Republican councilperson demanding police "surrender" the Vegas downtown permanently to the KKK terrorists.
How would President Obama react? How about the liberal mainstream media, or leading Democratic politicians, or the NAACP? Would they all demand President Obama send in the U.S. Marines to retake downtown Las Vegas from terrorists? You can bet your last dollar they would.
And the Republican governor, mayor and councilperson who took the side of the KKK terrorists would also be charged with either treason or aiding and abetting terrorism.
So, why is the media responding so differently to an antifa terrorist takeover of Seattle? It's time for action. Domestic terrorists have invaded and taken over an American city. They are holding it hostage. American citizens are being terrorized.
So, there are two options, Mr. President: Send in the SWAT team, National Guard or U.S. Marines to take back Seattle from the terrorists.
Or, here's my solution, a peaceful option that won't endanger innocent lives: Surround the "autonomous zone" now called CHAZ, formerly known as downtown Seattle, with a massive show of law enforcement, FBI SWAT teams and either the National Guard or Marines.
Next, bring in the U.S. Army Core of Engineers. Construct a fence with barbed wire on top around the entire six blocks. Seal the terrorists in.
Next, cut off all electricity, gas, water and sewage. Prohibit supplies from being brought in. The terrorists are trapped.
Give them a few days with no food, water, electricity or toilets. Watch them walk out with hands up, holding white flags.
Immediately arrest them; put them in handcuffs and leg irons; and fly them to Guantanamo, where they will await trial for terrorism charges. If convicted, be sure they receive life in prison.
That's a strong message sent to future rioters, hostage takers, invaders and various terrorist groups.
Isn't this what President Obama would have done to KKK terrorists holding a city hostage? You're damn right.
Go get 'em, President Trump.
