You Have Entered the Autonomous Zone

“Claims that bands of militant Antifa members are roving the Seattle streets appear to be grossly exaggerated in right-wing media,” CNN reports. It would be nuts to think that! “It is true that demonstrators have occupied a small, six-square block section of Seattle and designated it an ‘autonomous zone.’ And it is true that, after clashes with police, a precinct was boarded up and evacuated in an attempt to deescalate the situation.” Move along, nothing to see here . . .

Governor Jay Inslee assures us, “The area is largely peaceful.” It has a nickname: CHAZ, for Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

The New York Times has a piece about this.

Emily Pothast has a leftward take on CHAZ.
