Reports: Seattle’s Autonomous Zone Has First ‘Warlord’; Inslee Remains Clueless (Video)

As we and others reported, Antifa insurrectionists have essentially seceded from the Union and have formed what amounts to a separate “country” of sorts in Seattle’s Capitol Hill area.  Naturally, city authorities have retreated out of the area, leaving a vacuum.  That vacuum appears to have been filled by a Soundcloud rapper going by the name of Raz Simone, according to various reports.

RedState tells us that Simone is now the “de facto ruler” of the so-called autonomous zone.  And from what we have seen, he’s not exactly a nice guy.

As you can see in the video below, it appears he’s not beneath using a bit of thuggery to get his way:


It pretty much seems that way.

Sean Davis minces no words describing what this really is:


And of course, we’re not surprised to hear this:

Meanwhile, Jay Inslee, the Democrat governor of Washington state, admitted he has no clue what’s going on in the state’s largest city:

Here’s how that went:

Q: Governor, I’d like to ask you about what’s going on in Seattle. There’s this thing called the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. What’s your thought on that — the fact that the protesters have taken that over, and not allowing people to come and go freely? …

A: Well, that’s news to me. So I’ll have to reserve any comment about it. I have not heard anything about that from any credible source. [Laughs] Not that you’re not credible, it’s just that I — before I espouse an opinion, I should know of which I speak. [Laughs]

We’re not too surprised that Inslee’s clueless, since, as Newsbusters reported, propagandists in the liberal media have largely ignored the whole brouhaha:

Republicans in the state aren’t too thrilled:

President Trump responded:



Of course, both Inslee and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin have given the president the middle finger:

Okay, so Trump did tweet a typo.  Big deal.  At least he knows what’s going on in Washington, which is more than Inslee can say.  And for the record, when lawless thugs engage in what amounts to a rebellion against the United States, that happens to be the president’s business…

Simone also responded to Trump:

What?  Has this guy never heard of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?  And has he not kept up with current events?  Give us a break…
