Leadership in CHAZ/CHOP are calling for violence, saying it is justified and it is inevitable.
Media personality Ami Horowitz is known for conducting street interviews and his latest from CHAZ/CHOP zone in Seattle has raised fresh concerns about the motives of those leading the so-called “autonomous zone” protests that have been going on for well over a week.
Horowitz spoke with several people, most notably a woman who is allegedly a leader in the protest. Jaiden Grayson calmly and clearly all but promised (and justified) future violent acts.
Grayson also called for the complete abolition of the police department, the criminal justice system, and the prison system. She told Horowitz they were prepared to achieve those goals “by any means necessary.”
When Horowitz asked her if that was just a slogan, she was unequivocal. “It’s not a slogan. It’s not even a warning. I’m letting people know what comes next. If the Seattle Police Department turns in their badges, we’ll have made a move forward,” she explained.
Grayson also dismissed the 9/11 attacks as “one act of terror” while claiming black people have been killed for so long “the PTSD from that is unbelievable.”
Another hooded man and masked female told Horowitz they were okay with committing more acts of violence in part because “white people owned slaves, so f#$% em.” Both are white.
A man at the end of the video said he was part of the Black Panther movement and didn’t support abolishing police, saying that “people need them” despite the current anger.
The media and others have claimed the protests are “mostly peaceful” but it is clear there are elements involved who seek otherwise.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has been doing her best to appease and pander to the protesters, attempting several tweets of solidarity.
Her comments are meant to pacify, however, calling a hostile takeover over and a list of demands “first amendment activities” is a generous assessment of the situation.
Durkan also tried to use Fox News as an easy scapegoat and unifying rally cry.
Faithwire and CBN News will be monitoring the situation in Seattle and will update as necessary. Be praying for a peaceful end to this protest and that no more violence occurs.
