The Insurrection Spreads: Police Shut Down Attempted Autonomous Zone in Asheville, NC (Video)

It seems the radical left’s insurrection is spreading across the country.  On Friday, protesters attempted to set up another so-called “autonomous zone” in Asheville, North Carolina, reported.

A poster on Reddit uploaded a picture and said the attempt was made on Lexington Street.  An hour later, someone said traffic was already moving.  The report indicated the attempt only lasted a couple hours.

People are attempting to set up an autonomous zone here on Livingston street. I’m here with the medical team and we are set up just outside the borders. from asheville

“There were still some people milling around last I checked, but they were all off the roads,” one person said.

Here’s video of authorities tearing down the barricade:

The attempt in Asheville isn’t the first since insurrectionists took over a six-square-block area in Seattle.  According to, one was attempted in Portland, but it didn’t get much attention:

Protesters/insurrectionists considered setting one up in NAshville, Tennessee, but Gov. Bill Lee warned that “lawlessness, autonomous zones, and violence will not be tolerated.”

Meanwhile, secessionists continue to hold territory in Seattle, thanks in large part to inaction and tacit support from a Democrat mayor and the state’s Democrat Governor, Jay Inslee.  Reports have surfaced, however, stating that patriots and bikers might move in to retake the area on July 4.
