Radical protester threatens to tear cops apart if they don’t commit suicide—Seattle city councilwoman justifies his sentiments

Good residents of Seattle deserve better than this city council—cops certainly do.

Seattle City Councilwoman Teresa Mosqueda posted a live video on Facebook, knowing it contained vicious anti-Seattle Police Department (SPD) excrement, including a threat from a piece of filth in the crowd, bellowing through a bullhorn at cops protecting their precinct.

He vomited, “‘SPD, I need you to do me a favor. Take your guns, put them onto your chins, and pull the trigger,’ the man yelled. ‘I need you to kill yourselves. That’s your only redemption. Go ahead, save us the trouble of tearing you apart and *****ing kill yourselves. Did I stutter? I said, ‘k-k-k-kill yourselves [emphasis mine].'”

The lunatic emphasized, “****ing kill yourselves. It’s the only chance you have to do something good for the world and that’s remove yourselves from it.”

Jason Rantz, for mynorthwest.com, wrote that at the sometimes violent protests, Councilwoman Mosqueda remarked about the vermin’s threats and told the crowd “The anger you hear is justified.” Did she miss the threat to tear the cops apart, if they didn’t draw their guns and blow their own heads off? Did she miss that?

The city’s voters have packed the Seattle City Council with anti-police radical socialists. But, not to be outdone, King County Councilman Girmay Zahilay was also there and said, “I’ve seen nothing but peaceful protesters out here.” Apparently, threatening to kill cops is now peaceful. Then, turning himself into a caricature, he uttered these reassuring words to police. “You have declared war on the American people. We do not forgive, we do not forget. Expect us.” Expect us? Another threat?

City Councilman Dan Strauss decried the “weapons of war” on our streets against our residents. Rantz pointed out police used no weapons on the demonstrators during that protest. However, as Strauss also described them, the “peaceful” protesters “threw rocks, bottles and incendiary devices at police, sending two [officers] to the hospital.” Shamefully, city leaders ordered police to retreat away from their precinct. Councilwoman Mosqueda announced her “demands” on Twitter:

  1. Defund Seattle Police Department
  2. Fund Community-Based Health and Safety
  3. Don’t Prosecute Protesters

She followed that up with this oh-so responsible statement: “The police are rooted in violence against Black people. In order to protect Black lives, this moment calls for investing in and expanding our safety and well-being beyond policing.” Never has the trite idiom “the inmates are running the asylum” fit a group of political whackos so well.

As Rantz alludes to in his closing, Councilwoman Mosqueda Tweeted a list of demands that infers she’s holding hostages. But wait…she is holding hostages. The good residents of Seattle who deserve better than this city council. Then again, they’re the ones who keep voting for these lunatic leaders. Four of them pictured in the Twitter post below (Seattle City Councilmembers Andrew Lewis, Lisa Herbold, Dan Strauss, Teresa Mosqueda, and State Rep. Nicole Macri) adorned the requisite virtue-signaling face masks and nestled amongst the anti-police throng. You know, the throng which includes the man with a megaphone who told cops to kill themselves so the “peaceful protesters” wouldn’t have to do it.
