Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson dropped a satirical tourism video this week depicting “all the wonderful things that communism has to offer” in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, known as “CHAZ.”
Even in its humor, the video reveals the harsh reality of what a society without rules, order, and mixed with chaos might look like – thankfully, it’s just the street in Seattle.
“Are you sick of living in capitalist America? Sick of your freedoms and rights? And security and due process? Well, come on down to CHAZ,” Jonson says in the video’s opening.
The hilarious video shows areas full of trash and graffiti, as well as people publicly defecating and using drugs in the streets. In fact, come to think of it, it would be downright disgusting and scary if you were really there.
“Be a good environmentalist by throwing your trash everywhere and expecting capitalist America to pick it up,” Johson says jokingly.
“Artists in CHAZ are free to create art anywhere they want, even on playgrounds for children and historic buildings. You can even create art on bathrooms that capitalist America has donated to CHAZ. However, I wouldn’t recommend using these facilities. Instead, just poop in the street.”
The nearly 6 block area was formed by a group of anarchists who took over a police precinct when government officials ordered the police officers to surrender.
The attack followed the tragic death of George Floyd, who died in police custody after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly 9 minutes as he repeated “I can’t breathe.” Since Floyd’s death, subsequent riots and protests have erupted nationwide.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
