Seattle City council member Kshama Sawant provided a victory address recently that will send chills down the spine of any American who fears the rise of Communism. The city council decided to pass an “Amazon tax” and Sawant is now threatening to overthrow the entire country. She wants to replace our current government with a socialist alternative.
She has been serving on Seattle’s city council for the past six years and has been an American citizen ever since 2010. She immigrated to this country from India and has earned degrees in computer science and economics from the University of Mumbai and the University of North Carolina. We assure you that we are not exaggerating her statements or engaging in needless hyperbole.
Sawant said that they are coming to dismantle American society as we know it and no one batted an eye. She referred to the system as deeply oppressive and racist. “Utterly bankrupt” is another term that she decided to use. America was referred to as a police state and the system of capitalism was decried.
In other words, this is just another day in the life of the leftists. In Sawant’s mind, the current system has to be overthrown and replaced with a socialist world. If this shift takes place, Sawant promises a society that is based on true democracy, equality and solidarity. Amazon owner Jeff Bezos was threatened, as Sawant said that he and his “rotten system” are in danger.
I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class.
If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to defeat you.
And we will not stop there.
Because you see, we are fighting for far more than this tax, we are preparing the ground for a different kind of society.
And if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it.
Because we are coming for you and your rotten system.
If Bezos decides to try and overturn the Amazon Tax, Sawant is predicting a mass uprising. The American people will rise up and attempt to destroy him. Furthermore, she promises that they will not stop there. They are not merely fighting in favor of this tax, they are fighting for a whole new society. Jeff Bezos is being warned now.
Do not stand in their way or there will be consequences, claims Sawant. The entire speech is filled with this kind of fire and brimstone. It’s one heck of a watch if you want to see a truly unhinged leftist who is being egged on to say anything that comes into her head. The idea that people will rise up and destroy Jeff Bezos is a far fetched one but Sawant is high on her own self importance.
For those who have been paying attention, she is the one who is accused of opening the doors of City Hall and allowing the protesters to run amok inside. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar must be very pleased. It’s the same type of rhetoric that they offer up on a constant basis. We would not be surprised if Barack Obama and Joe Biden were encouraging this as well.
They spent their tenure in the White House enacting as many moderate policies as possible but now they want to reinvent themselves as revolutionaries. They are so desperate to get back into the White House that they are willing to tear apart the nation’s moral fabric. Liberal leaders all over the country are following their lead at an alarming rate.
Seattle already tried to experiment with new ideas, giving their residents the chance to establish a six block zone that was completely autonomous. Anyone who paid even a little bit of attention to that experiment already knows that it went very poorly. You would think that the Seattle liberals would be willing to calm down for a few minutes and let the family members of the fallen CHOP residents mourn for a bit.
It never ends, though. Sawant does not know how to read the room or offer condolences. All she and her fellow leftists care about is causing grief for the rest of America. We doubt that Jeff Bezos is going to lose even a wink of sleep over these threats. After all, the ‘defund the police’ movements neglect to mention the possibility that police forces could become privatized. The Bezos types would be further insulated from any threat that could come their way.
