Seattle Mayor Describes ‘CHAZ’ As A ‘Block Party’, Not ‘An Armed Takeover’

In an interview Thursday night with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan described blocks of Seattle’s streets that have been designated by Antifa the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” as a “block party,” rather than “an armed takeover.” The Seattle police and local government surrendered the area to Antifa anarchists Wednesday, leading to chaos.

“We’ve got four blocks in Seattle that you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere,” Durkan said. “It’s not an armed takeover, it’s not a military junta. We will make sure that we can restore this, but we have block parties and the like in this part of Seattle all the time, it’s known for that.”

Sticking to his promise to restore law and order amid the violence in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death, President Donald Trump has promised to take action in Seattle if local leaders don’t.

Durkan added, “There is no threat right now to the public. And we’re taking that very seriously. We’re meeting with businesses and residents. But what the President threatened is illegal and unconstitutional. And the fact that he can think he can just tweet that and not have ramifications is just wrong.”

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
