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.

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’
On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.
The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.
Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.
“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”
“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”
While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
