So, Seattle, not one to let Minneapolis run to its Left, is moving to abolish its police department because it is the faunt of “racism and violence” to supprot “white supremacy culture”, and instead institute a “civilian led Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention”… in other words a type of committee of public safety!
Specifically the city council Seattle Soviet demands that “Seattle” become “deccriminalized” and replace the police with:
- “Culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections”
- “Housing, food security, and other basic needs”
- “Trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis”
Note the use of the Marxist term “praxis”, which is a dead give-away of the ironically very, very White basis of the Seattle City Council’s thinking. Unlike “racism”, “justice’, et al., “praxis” is very much an alien term to anyone who isn’t versed in radical Leftism.
Even your humble author is shocked by how unassumingly a major city of the United States is declaring its institutional privilege, institutional power, and institutional governance—as declared by the word “Praxis”—is to be concentrated towards an outright attack against every fiber, essence, and element of the United States in such a way as to make the Constitution’s Treason Clause seem less like a reasonable, though radical at the time, restriction, and more like a moral imperative.
The blatant Marxism goes further:
“And finally, the plan demands that the City conduct an ‘immediate transfer of underutilized public land for BIPOC community ownership’—in essence, the redistribution of land, which is a hallmark of Marxist regimes.”
This is in lock-step with the demands to “[d]ecriminalize Seattle and King County Equity Now” (note again, the use of “equity” as a justification for perpetual racial discrimination, perpetual racial animus, and perpetual racial hate).
