A newly resurfaced November 2015 memo from a senior Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) official calls the Black Lives Matter Movement "radical," and offers Democratic House candidates suggestions for how to handle activists who attempt to approach their campaigns.

The secretive document, first leaked in 2016 by the hacker "Guccifer 2.0," was characterized as insensitive and condescending at the time. Now, as Democrats are confronted with a newly resurgent Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement that has led politicians to kneel in kente cloths and changed free speech norms across the country, the memo threatens to undermine their stated commitment to reform following the in-custody death of George Floyd.

"This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building," the memo from Troy Perry, a top DCCC official, begins. "Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone."

Black Lives Matter advocates for a "collective ownership" economic model, reparations and the "immediate release" of everyone convicted of a drug offense, in addition to defunding police forces and other left-wing agenda items.

If approached by Black Lives Matter activists, Perry advises in the memo that House candidates offer to meet with them -- but that they shouldn't "offer support for concrete policy positions."

Under no circumstances, Perry says, should Democrats "say 'all lives matter' nor mention 'black-on-black crime.'" "These are all viewed as red herring attacks," the document reads. "This response will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists. This is the worst response."

Protestors and anarchist [many BLM and Antifa] have taken over and occupied the six-block downtown area in Seattle, Washington and named the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ). They have declared it an independent nation. They have declared it a so-called “cop-free zone”. They have their own armed militia. They set up barricades around the area and established controlled entry and check points. Residents who live within the boundaries are "forced to show ID to prove you “belong” there." “We have been hearing from community members that they have been subjected to barricades set up by the protesters with some armed individuals running them as checkpoints in the neighborhood,” Assistant Police Chief Deanna Nolette said, “While they have a constitutionally protected right to bear arms there is no legal right for those arms to be used to intimidate community members.” “We have heard anecdotally of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area; this is crime of extortion,” Nolette said, referring to a comment posted to CHS by a purported area business owner.

They wish to control the entire city of Seattle. Their list of demands included abolishing the Seattle city’s police department, banning the use of armed force, removing officers from schools, eradicating juvenile jails and prisons, and distributing reparations to victims of police brutality.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) wrote that “antifa” — a loosely connected, militant activist network known for violence — had designated Seattle as its capital and that the United States should not “surrender ANY of its communities to mob rule EVER.” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) commented sarcastically: “Lord of the Flies in downtown Seattle. What could go wrong?”

There's no way that every person within "CHAZ" agrees with the anarchy within its "borders". I feel sorry for those people. Even if they wanted to sell their home or condo to leave, they can't. Property values within "CHAZ" are in limbo or even nullified. Perhaps the "citizens" of "CHAZ" have claimed ownership of all property "collectively"?

Two topics for the price of one :wink:

The CHAZ will probably collapse very soon, which will be ample demonstration of the utter failure of these people’s ideology.

So if one isn't a far-left anarchist, they will be considered a persona non grata in Seattle?

All lives matter is a slogan used by racists to distract from the way black lives are uniquely devalued by American society. What exactly is dishonest about that?

Similarly, how exactly is it false to be aware of how black-on-black crime is often brought up to dismiss the idea of black lives having value because of crime within their communities, as though that's not a reflection of the way racial biases in policing? If police only interact with a community as though they're perpetrators, never caring about when they're the victims of crime it makes sense that that community won't trust them. This will be further compounded if they also have a high rate of arresting the wrong suspects and beating or killing members of that community regularly.

It's nice that some of your posts sometimes display a degree of personal compassion but it would be nice if that sense of compassion would motivate you to understand the broader situation.

"Secret Memo"

Hush, Hush …

Don't speak the honest words of "all lives matter" or "black on black crime".

They might be dumb enough to say those phrases, loads of Democrats are just as horrible on racial issues as Republicans but at least their party is willing to remind them that they're supposed to be better than that. The Democratic establishment is deathly terrified of establishment candidates being replaced with more AOCs, even if more AOCs is probably what their base would prefer.

Personally I'd rather see the people who would need reminded to not say those things not represent the Democratic party, but between two racists I'll take the one who at least feels an obligation to not be open about it.

The Democratic base pretty consistently rejects the AOCs of the world, outside of Massachusetts. Obviously there are exceptions but it seems apparent the Democratic base prefers liberals.

Socialists might have the edge over the Joe Manchins of the world in bluer states but Manchin is as far from the centre of the Democratic Party as the socialists are.

Townhall senior reporter Julio Rosas, who is on the ground in Seattle covering the city's police-free “Autonomous Zone,” thinks the mainstream media is downplaying the story, and that coverage would be more hostile if President Trump supporters had taken over parts of a city.

Liberal news outlets have largely downplayed the six-block downtown area, dubbed the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ), because of its location in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood. CNN has dismissed the chaos, while The New York Times celebrated it as “a homeland for racial justice.”

Rosas: I think the biggest misperception in the media is that only good things are happening in and around the autonomous zone. As I have been documenting the past few days, things are not all sunshine, rainbows and unicorns. There has been fighting, there was an armed "warlord" and there have been threats of violence. Yes, things have been mostly peaceful, but that's not all that's happening here.

CNN is trying to claim there are no armed members of Antifa here in the zone, but that is simply not true. As others have documented, there have been Antifa types who have carried guns in the zone, along with other types of people. I have seen some armed with wooden or metal poles. They are mainly on the barricades that have been set up in an attempt to keep out law enforcement or anyone they think is a white supremacist.

Honestly, I'm not surprised the mainstream media is trying to downplay what's happening here. We saw an MSNBC reporter trying to downplay the riots in Minneapolis as a building was on fire behind him.

The most unbelievable thing I've seen so far is just the abandonment of the Capitol Hill neighborhood by the Seattle city government. When I was in Minneapolis, while they did abandon parts of the city for a few days, they did give clear intentions of taking back the area. In Seattle, we've seen the opposite. Not only have they signaled that they do not intend on taking back the East Precinct anytime soon, but they are enabling the occupiers by providing porta-potties and keeping most of the barricades in place.

As I said, things are mostly peaceful and that is a big difference from Minneapolis, but the only reason it's peaceful is because the local and state government is taking an appeasement approach to the situation. As history tells us, appeasement is only a short-term solution and I can say the occupiers do not plan on leaving anytime soon.

Protesters inside the self-declared autonomous zone in downtown Seattle booed and heckled members of the African American Community Advisory Council Thursday afternoon as the group told demonstrators they had "hijacked" the message of Black Lives Matter.

The council works to foster relationships between the Seattle Police Department and the community, a necessary liaison, particularly in the climate of mounting tension against police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

“The thing is, you have hijacked this! You have taken the meaning away!” a woman from the council said, addressing demonstrators inside the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” (CHAZ)-- a six-block region, which includes a police precinct-- that has been taken over by protesters.

After weeks of protests, Seattle demonstrators successfully ousted police officers from the East Precinct, forcing them to shutter the building and leave, and attempts at negotiating a police presence have been unsuccessful.

“Black lives do matter but there are also black lives that are police lives,” a woman from the council said, according to reports by Komo News. “They feel the same way that you do.”

The woman was booed and demonstraters grabbed other microphones and began talking over her, the news outlet reported.

AACAC Chair, Victoria Beach lambasted the city's mayor, Jenny Durkan, calling her "cowardly" for opening up the streets "to all of the mayhem,” she told the local news outlet.

Police officials attempted to enter the East Precinct on Thursday but were jeered by protesters, who have reportedly set up checkpoints with armed guards to keep law enforcement officials away. Other protesters attempted to escort officers to the precinct, to the dismay of their fellow demonstrators.

Since police have left the area, officers say their response time to incidents in the city have tripled because they are unable to access the area for calls for help.

Activists and police have clashing views regarding the activities going on inside the so-called "CHAZ," a six-block area of Seattle that has been taken over by protesters — and authorities are still scratching their heads as to who is actually running the rabble.

Photos of demonstrations inside the zone, which includes a now-shuttered police precinct, seem to paint a rosy picture: outdoor movies, music performances, sidewalk artwork and more.

"There's that stuff, but then there's the darker side of things too," according to one law enforcement official.

One CHAZ supporter, identified as Armani on Twitter, encouraged protesters to "buy guns."

Police have repeatedly said they have "heard, anecdotally, reports of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area" while others have complained about armed guards asking to see identification for people to enter their homes, according to Assistant Chief of Police Deanna Nollette.

Police have also said their response time to 911 calls has tripled over the last few days because they are unable to access the downtown region and are being blocked out by protesters.

A possible leader behind the movement is Kshama Sawant, a Seattle City Council member who helped let hundreds of demonstrators into City Hall earlier this week in a late-night protest calling for Mayor Jenny Durkan to resign.

"The process for deciding East Precinct conversion must include those involved in CHAZ, black community organizations, restorative justice, faith, anti-racist, renter orgns, land trusts, groups, labor unions that have a proven record of fighting racism," Sawant wrote in a post on Twitter.

Even for 2020, events in Seattle are bizarre: Armed radicals have taken over six blocks downtown, with the de facto blessing of city officials.

It’s the 2011 Occupy Wall Street (OWS) takeover of Zuccotti Park, but multiplied by a factor of 10 or 20. Indeed, the OWS radicals were tame by comparison, with their drum circles and chants: This crew has at least one guy running around with a pistol and an AK-47.

Image

Zuccotti Park saw rapes, theft and disease under its occupation. CHAZ promises more of the same. The zone also resembles OWS in its lack of coherent leadership; demands from various quarters include abolishing the SPD to “de-gentrifying” Seattle to the mayor’s resignation.

Durkan says she’s committed to maintaining a space for peaceful protests but wants to dialogue with the invaders. Gov. Jay Inslee on Wednesday actually pleaded ignorance of the situation.

This has nothing to do with any legitimate protest. It’s a motley gang’s power grab, plain and simple — encouraged by Durkan’s appalling weakness.

I take it as an example of how to create affordable housing. Just create your own state.
