Why a ‘Back the Blue’ #WalkAway Republican is About to Become Seattle’s Next City Attorney

Published

on

The Democrats have put up a candidate for Seattle City Attorney so insane that a #WalkAway “Back the Blue” Republican is widely expected to win the race next month. Two former Democratic governors of Washington and the far left Seattle Times have endorsed the Republican, that’s how scary Nicole Thomas-Kennedy is. Democrats love to make fun of Republicans who say far out things, but they’ve met their match with Thomas-Kennedy. The Republican, Ann Davison, was a safe 21% ahead in a poll earlier this month.

 

The race is getting no coverage outside of the Seattle area because the mainstream media doesn’t want Americans to know just how frightening the left can be. Thomas-Kennedy is running as an “abolitionist” who wants to abolish the police and jails. She intends to dismantle the criminal division of the office and stop prosecuting crimes. That part of the office prosecutes misdemeanors; including DUIs, assault, theft and domestic violence.

A former public defender, Thomas-Kennedy said “property destruction is a moral imperative.” and “I for sure hate this country.” She despises the police, referring to them as “serial killers,” “pigs, “Nazis,” “stains on humanity” and “ACAB,” which stands for All Cops Are Bastards. When rioters tried to shut down the Seattle Police’s East Precinct in the summer of 2020, she said the person who detonated an explosive device, blowing a hole in the precinct wall, was a “hero.” Similarly, when someone set fire to a construction area and trailer, she tweeted, “YAY! Thank you to the heroes that set the Children’s Jail on fire.” 

 

She said the police don’t deserve the COVID-19 vaccine and “Eat some covid laced shit and quit ur jobs.” When former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, who was forced out by radicals, promoted department efforts to rebuild community trust, Thomas-Kennedy responded with “Enjoy sitting in your dirty diaper you crybabies.” She said she has a “rabid hatred” for the police and “I currently read like a single issue law enforcement abolition anarchist.” 

 

She has a lengthy discussion on her campaign website of why theft should not be prosecuted, claiming that people steal because they’re hungry and want a sandwich. But as a former prosecutor, I can tell you that’s not true, very few people steal food because they’re hungry (they can get food at food banks), and if they are prosecuted for it, it’s only in order to have them plead guilty to a lesser charge than their more serious crimes.

 

Her campaign manager, who tellingly protects her tweets, is even scarier. Tye Reed said Biden should die after a speech he gave on race and social justice, saying his wasted breath was “hopefully his last.” Nothing happened to her of course, since she’s a leftist. She said about Seattle’s Mayor Jenny Durkan, “That b**** Mayor Durkan … is gonna get her a** beat one day.” In response to a shooting, she wished, “Prayers the victim is a kkkop.” She referred to Best as an “Uncle Tom motherf***** benefiting off the suffering of black folks.” On Thomas-Kennedy’s campaign Facebook page, there is a photo of Reed wearing a shirt with a photo of a burning Seattle Police SUV with the slogan “This is a policy proposal.” 

 

Thomas-Kennedy defended Reed during an interview with Fox 13 earlier this month. “I think that she’s a Black woman in America that has seen a lot of people that look like her being killed by police and she was probably pretty angry about that.” 

 

  1. Kimi Kondo, who served 28 years as a Seattle Municipal Court judge, calls Thomas-Kennedy “an avowed anarchist,” and was one of 30 retired judges who endorsed her opponent. The Washington Democratic Party admitted they were not endorsing her, and refused to defend Reed’s tweets, with Democratic Party Spokesperson Alex Bond saying she “doesn’t appear to have much affection for the Democratic Party or our elected officials and doesn’t work for us, so I’m not sure how or why our party would answer for inflammatory and irresponsible statements they might make.”

 

Democrat-turned-Republican Ann Davison has zero experience in criminal law and lost two previous races. She ran as a Democrat for city council emphasizing removal of homeless encampments from public spaces including parks. After that, she switched to the Republican Party and failed to make it past the primary for lieutenant governor. 

 

She’s annoyed the left by referring to them as “The Democrat Party” instead of “The Democratic Party.” She opposes a new law requiring school districts to provide sex education. She attended a “Back the Blue” rally in August 2020, posting photos of herself with the president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild. She criticized Seattle’s policies banning residential evictions. She attacked Democrats for demonizing business and criticized Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee’s mask mandate. She recorded a video with #WalkAway Brandon Straka in June 2020, saying what caused her to leave the Democratic Party was how they looked the other way at homelessness. She said it’s not being green spending money to improve areas that are just then allowed to be destroyed by the homeless. “It breaks my heart what they’ve done to my city.” 

 

Granted, Davison is not a hardcore Trumper. She voted for Biden last year. She didn’t vote for either Inslee or his Republican challenger Loren Culp last year. 

 

Thomas-Kennedy is trying to back away from some of her most controversial tweets by saying she has a right to troll people on Twitter — but her platform on abolishing the police and the prisons is still on her website. She thinks she should get a free pass for her tweets — even though the left viciously cancels conservatives for tweets they regret.

 

Many Democrats endorsed Thomas-Kennedy anyway, including former Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and Seattle City Councilmembers Tammy Morales and Teresa Mosqueda. They chose her in the primary over the incumbent, Democrat Pete Holmes, whose focus in office appeared to be eliminating crimes related to marijuana. While Thomas-Kennedy may be too radical today, the number of Democrats who are just fine with her is a disturbing sign of where things are eventually going.

Mini-Movie Reviews, 6

Two out of three ain’t bad

Published

on

Here are three movies, each having received at least one Oscar nomination:

All Quiet on the Western Front — here is a remake of the 1930s classic, and I was prepared to have this be the same old trench warfare, with all the accompanying platitudes. Instead, I was surprised. This was well done, with decent acting, and a few hand-to-hand combat sequences unlike anything I have previously seen, some truly touching. It is a German production, but all in English. Although it’s on the long side, I think it is worthwhile.

Everything Everywhere All at Once — starring Michelle Yeoh, and receiving 11 Oscar nominations is alternatively amusing, excessively noisy, clever, confusing, and lacking boundaries. It is without a raison d’être, as with other movies during this awards season, notably The Banshees of Isherin and Tár. Everything Everywhere is getting rave reviews, but I say “skip it.” As one reviewer put it, the plot seems to suggest “that what makes life meaningful is the recognition that because there is no inherent meaning, all things and moments are equally meaningful.” Oh, sure thing….

Aftersun — a subtle but touching recollection of a 30-year old woman, when she was on a long vacation with her divorced father, 20 years earlier, before the new school year starts. Not much happens, yet we are drawn to this twosome, and the screenplay and the director skillfully lead us to an articulated but implied conclusion. Newcomer Paul Mescal, as the father, received an Oscar nomination and (Miss) Frankie Corio, as the 10-year old daughter, is equally good. Aftersun is not for the masses, but I found it to be worthwhile.

The Left Is Fueling a New Racism

Published

on

It’s my firm belief that the number of Americans holding racist views is small, whether white, black, or Hispanic. At this point in our history, the vast majority of Americans try to live up to the challenge delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. We keep moving toward the hard-fought dream he envisioned of an America where a citizen’s character would mean more than the color of their skin.

We are a different country today. I’ve presented leadership programs to hundreds of companies over the last 40 years. I’ve seen the work they’ve done to embrace diversity and advance capable employees and leaders from all races. Many minority members have advanced and earned their rightful place in making this great American economy work. At a time we should be celebrating and furthering our progress, our American culture is under attack from the left. Angry race-baiters are doing everything they can to increase our racial divide through pushing the 1619 Project, CRT, and BLM. They make extreme racist claims with a clear goal—to expand the government gravy train that only racial “victims” can justify.

I lived in pre-civil rights Atlanta where there were separate schools, separate bathrooms, and the baseball team was the Atlanta Crackers! Today, it’s more likely that leftist blacks are the ones who want separate schools, separate rights, and special reparations for their race.

As one anonymous post asserted, “Only in America can an ethnic group of black awareness month, black holiday, black only colleges, black only dating sites, and black only bars and clubs…and turn around and call everyone else racists!” You don’t have to look far to find evidence of extreme black racist demands.

In California, the San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee released a report calling on the city to pay every qualifying black California resident $5 million and absolve them of their outstanding personal debt. This is madness. California was a free state and did not condone slavery, but the committee is doing all it can to justify reparations: “While neither San Francisco, nor California, formally adopted the institution of chattel slavery, the tenets of segregation, white supremacy and systematic repression and exclusion of Black people were codified through legal and extralegal actions, social codes, and judicial enforcement.” To the left, this “failure” warrants millions of innocent California citizens being forced to pay higher taxes to fund exorbitant benefits to one race they haven’t abused in any way.

In Washington, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is proposing a law that could codify black racism in America. There is a common mantra in her political speeches: White America is defined by institutional racism, systemic racism, white supremacy, and white nationalism. She attacks “white” America and seems to see the clan in the face of every white citizen. Such general attacks are evidence of a new racism—black racism.

Read for yourself Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s proposed law, the Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023. The legislation promises to criminalize criticism of any minority that is subsequently used to incite anybody else to commit a hate crime. The law reads: “A conspiracy to engage in white supremacy inspired hate crimes shall be determined to exist between two or more persons, at least one of whom published material advancing white supremacy, white supremacist ideology, antagonism based on ‘replacement theory,’ or hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-White person or group could, as determined by a reasonable person, motivate actions by a person predisposed to engaging in a white supremacy inspired crime.”

This is a chilling attack on freedom of speech against one race—caucasians. In short, if you criticize a minority and another person states that your statement was all the motivation needed to do a hate crime, you may be jailed because your criticism “motivated” a hate crime you did not commit. Get the message—be silent and conform or we will put you away.

Black racism is real and just as evil as white racism. Both must be soundly rejected by responsible citizens. As a Christian, I affirm my Savior’s claim that all God’s children matter! No responsible citizen should be shamed into silence by the irresponsible racist attacks of the left. Be proud of yourself and of America. Whether black, brown or white, success as a small business person or advancement as a good employee had to be earned by hard work, long hours, and diligent sacrifice. As with Americans for generations, it was not handed to you. You didn’t depend on government handouts to get ahead, you had to find a way to earn your own American Dream.

Reparations will never happen! Politicians can’t even afford to fund the entitlements they’ve already promised. Special black racist demands are unethical, divisive, and risk fueling a new racism backlash. Politicians from the left keep making the promises to fuel racist anger and secure special interest donations and votes.

Don’t fall for their racist rants and demands. Depending on government entitlements is never the answer. Instead, get busy following the models and learning from citizens of all races who have made America work for themselves and their families.

Let’s reclaim the American Dream Martin Luther King, Jr. affirmed. Do not judge a fellow citizen by the color of their skin. Celebrate the character of the vast majority of good American citizens you meet. Keep rejecting racism of any kind. It’s time to stand proud and applaud hard work and success wherever we find it, no matter what the race. May it always be so in this great republic we treasure…America!
