#BasedTucker has been on an absolute rampage of late – not surprising given the sheer amount of material that he has to work with these days – and his rant from last night was a thing of beauty to behold:
So let me get this straight:
The residents of a six-block area in Seattle basically up and declared themselves an “autonomous zone”, instituted border patrols and armed security checkpoints, and started harassing and intimidating people who try to come into their new “country” to see what’s going on, and started beating up on people that wanted to leave?
Man, John Ringo’s The Last Centurion is TOO close to real life for comfort. Those who’ve read that book will note that this is EXACTLY how things play out in the “Detroit scenario” within the last three or four chapters.
For those who haven’t read the book – I won’t spoil it here, because I honestly think that it is one of the best books that Mad Johnny has ever written (and that’s saying something given the general quality of his output), but basically, the USA falls apart due to a massive triple-whammy of a deadly pandemic, an economic collapse, and a totally incompetent and crazy President who is a thinly veiled caricature of the Hilldebitch. Various American diversitopia cities break away from the body politic of the USA and establish themselves as, essentially, free-fire zones that are then supported by the VERY liberaltard establishment types.
Not just that, but the guy who sets himself up as the leader of the “Caliphate” of Detroit is a Black criminal scumbag who has charisma, charm, and the ability to play the media like a fiddle. He sets up a true Islamic Caliphate within Detroit, and of course it immediately descends into Hell for values of Hell.
You will notice that this is basically what is happening now in Seattle. They haven’t gotten to the Caliphate stage yet, but give it a month for this nonsense to continue, and I’d say it’s better than even money that we’ll see it happen.
There are a number of angles to take with this story. You can look at it as one gigantic joke, which in many ways it is – check out what the residents of CHAZ are saying right now:
Protesters in Seattle have been camped out this week in a six-block enclave called the “CHAZ” — where there’s a smoking section, room for political discourse and free food, if you can find it.
Short for the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” the “CHAZ” is located outside the Seattle Police Department’s now-deserted East Precinct at 12th Avenue and East Pine Street in the hip, bar-friendly neighborhood. The department’s sign was painted over to read “Seattle People Department.”
“From what I’ve gathered, we’re trying to take our community back so we can live without a massive police force patrolling the streets,” Michael Taylor told the Seattle Times.
The Seattle police abandoned the precinct Monday, hauling out sensitive items and boarding up the building’s windows before opening up the streets to protesters, Patch reported. The department has been sued for allegedly using violent tactics including tear gas and flash bang grenades against peaceful protesters.
By Tuesday, demonstrators took over the area, erecting a screen for a late-night showing of director Ava DuVernay’s movie “13th” for some 200 protesters, some of whom camped out overnight in tents.
Armed citizens stand guard in the streets, according to KOMO News.
Washington is an open-carry state but Assistant Police Chief Deanna Nollette warned, “there is no legal right for those arms to be used to intimidate community members.”
“We have heard anecdotally reports of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area,” Nollette added. “This is the crime of extortion.”
A “No-Cop Co-Op” has been doling out free food like Clif bars and fresh fruit, including to the homeless, and there’s a designated smoking section, as well as medical aid on every corner.
But at least one protester warned of a food shortage.
“The homeles [sic] people we invited took away all the food at the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” the person tweeted. “We need more food to keep the area operational. please if possible bring vegan meat substitutes, fruits, oats, soy products, etc. – anything to help us eat.”
Holy Mother of God, that’s hilarious.
These people are handing out free vegan food, wandering the streets of a six-block area of a city with guns, and intimidating businesses and people who live there and extorting them – yet, they depend on the rest of America to keep them fed and watered.
And let’s not lose sight of the whole vegan food thing, either. My readers are manly men of manliness who like steaks and bacon and meat, and you lot understand that manly foods like these help you to be a man – which is to say, they help you to be strong, alert, tough, disciplined, and attractive to women.
After a few weeks of nothing but vegan soy-bars and lattes, the residents of “CHAZ” are going to be so weakened from lack of real food that a six-year-old kid with a water balloon could take them all out.
Actually, it gets funnier than that, even.
Think about it. These people have basically established an enclave that operates outside the laws of the USA – on American soil. They are not recognised as a sovereign nation by anyone of any consequence. They are therefore an occupying force on American land and do not recognise the laws of the USA.
This means that His Most Illustrious, Noble, August, Benevolent, and Legendary Celestial Majesty, the God-Emperor of Mankind, Donaldus Triumphus Magnus Astra, the First of His Name, may the Lord bless him and preserve him, has EVERY POSSIBLE EXCUSE IN THE BOOK to declare it a territory in rebellion against the laws of the USA, mobilise against it, crush it, occupy it, exterminate any and all sources of trouble and nuisance, and restructure it as territory sin suffragio in perpetua.
(I’m loosely paraphrasing LTC Tom Kratman’s classic words, but you get the gist.)
Now it’s time to get a little more serious.
I have absolutely no doubt that there are quite a few of us on the Hard Right who are practically giddy and ecstatic with glee over the thought of watching the US Army doing what they are SUPPOSED to do and kill people and break things in order to take back the streets of American cities.
As much fun as it would be to watch the American military exercise some VERY long-overdue hippy control, let’s be clear about a few things.
First, the God-Emperor is severely limited in terms of his powers and abilities to do anything.
That is a VERY Good Thing. The powers of the Federal Executive are deliberately designed to be limited, and the Founders were mortally afraid of a President using his powers to occupy American homes and cities with a military force. The Posse Comitatus and Insurrection Acts delineate pretty precisely when the President can, and cannot, activate the military to occupy and crush armed resistance.
Realistically there is very little that the Lion of Midnight can do, within the limits of his powers, until and unless he is specifically asked by the Governors of particular states to intervene. And, remember, despite the protestations of the idiots who hate him, Donald Trump has actually shown more fidelity to the Constitution and its limits on his powers than ANY President within living memory.
I do mean that, by the way. I was just a toddler when St. Reagan Magnus of the Right, and obviously I am not American, so I have no memory of what the legendary Ronaldus Magnus was like. I do, however, remember what Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama were like, and they were all basically much of a muchness – globalist tools to the core with no care for what the Constitution said and meant.
Second, even if the God-Emperor moves against these idiots and does the job that the Mayor of Seattle and the Governor of Washington flatly refuse to do and enforce the laws of the United States, there is no way to put this particularly nasty genie back in the bottle.
The “United” part of the USA’s very name is now being tested. It will not take very long before it is tested to and beyond the breaking point. It’s already happening – we’re seeing it unfolding before our very eyes during these Crazy Times.
The inevitable end result will be a fracturing of the USA into multiple political entities – at least two, and I’m willing to wager that it will be up to four.
Now, interestingly enough, the heartland of the USA is not really going to have this problem. The gun nuts and rednecks – God love ’em! – in “flyover country” are watching this nonsense in Seattle with grim amusement and laughing and saying, “Good luck, we don’t have these problems here!”. I do think that Red State America will come through the coming conflagrations relatively intact, in all aspects – cultural, economic, territorial, linguistic, demographic, etc.
But Blue State “America” – which isn’t really America anymore – is looking right down the barrel of some serious Hell Times. God help them all. I lived in Blue State America for 12 years, and toward the end of that period I couldn’t wait to get out and move to Texas or Arizona. (Couldn’t because H-1B visa, etc.)
Third, and worst of all, the kind of “anarchy” that the talking heads on Fox and other right-wing networks are raging about, is not actually what we are likely to see.
This takes some explanation.
One of the most effective and powerful ways to trigger an anarchocapitalist or libertardarian is to tell him: “if you want your stateless Utopia, go to Somalia!”. When you actually do this, as an intellectually honest anarchist – in the proper academic sense of that word – you might be surprised to find out that places like Mogadishu are actually war-zones fought over by other government entities:
Anarchy in its most literal sense means, quite simply, no leader. The word comes from anarchos, which is to say, the negation of the Greek noun archos – ruler.
The “autonomous territory” – sorry, I can’t help but laugh at that – of CHAZ is anything but leaderless. The presstitutes of the liberal (((media))) claim that the situation right now is “extremely chill”, and that the rumours of a “SoundCloud rapper” being in charge are totally false right-wing propaganda. But it is clear that there is some kind of leadership involved, and that there are plenty of weird goings-on happening in this one six-block part of Seattle.
The entire reason we have government is precisely because governments make people less violent than they would be with complete autonomy.
However, the governments that come into being must have some kind of legitimacy among the eyes of the people. Otherwise, they become nothing more than kleptocracies. And that, evidently, is exactly what is happening in CHAZ right now.
When you have a kleptocracy, you don’t have anarchy. You have outright blatant theft, extortion, and terrorism brought to people’s front doors by men with guns.
Pay close attention to what happens in the next few days, lads. Things are going to get downright wild before very long – and if you thought that what has already happened is the limit of the craziness, then I’m sorry to tell you that we’re not even halfway through 2020, the Year of the Kung Flu Murder Hornet Mongol Monkey Swarm on Apocalyptic Death Horses.
"… intimidating businesses and people who live there and extorting them …"
This is a bagel joint within the east edge of The CHAZ, across the street from the police precinct.
They have a Special POZ Promotion! Check it out!
Just scroll down the page and look for their special statement as well as that Special POZ you have to say in order to get a free bagel!
So, yeah, these people are literally throwing bagels at The POZ because they figure it's better than getting their bagel shop destroyed.
I'm surprised American money still works there.
They're LITERALLY feeding the crocodiles in the hopes of being eaten last.
Life is getting a little TOO meta these days.
