The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ or the Zone), also known as Free Capitol Hill, is a self-declared autonomous zone in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The Zone, covering approximately six city blocks, was established on June 8, 2020, after Capitol Hill’s East Precinct building was abandoned by the Seattle Police Department (SPD).
Local governance in the Zone is decentralized, with the goal of creating a neighborhood beyond policing. Purported demands associated with the Zone include rent control, de-gentrification, police abolition or defunding, funding of community health, and the dropping of charges against protesters.
Reactions to the Zone have varied through the political spectrum. Left-wing and alternative publications The Industrial Worker and The Stranger have reacted positively to the commune. President Donald Trump called for the governor of Washington and the mayor of Seattle to “take back” the Zone, while Texas Senator Ted Cruz said the situation was “endangering people’s lives”. …
Hip hop artist Raz Simone has emerged as the de facto leader of the Zone. He has denied claims that he is behaving like a “warlord”. Controversy arose after a streamer recorded an interaction that appeared to show Simone patrolling the Zone with firearms and assaulting a tagger.
First thing they did? They built a wall and started patrolling the borders.

High point around 10 minutes. An hilarious collection of profound hypocrisies.
The revolution continues.
This is, of course, a massive vote loser for the left. The Democrat leaders are saying nothing, and the media are hardly mentioning it. CNN is even saying it’s just a right wing conspiracy theory — sure CNN, even Wikipedia knows about it (see link above).
