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.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’
The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”
The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”
An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.
In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.
Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”
As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”
Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
