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.

The Intolerant Left and Their Sign Charade

Having been sheltered for decades in the liberal mainstream media bubble, Liberal yard sign bearers have a twisted world view

Published

on

Drive through nearly any town in America, during an election season or not. You’ll see signs on front lawns or in picture windows proclaiming, “Hate has no home here,” “Science is real,” “Black lives matter,” “Love trumps hate,” “Love is the answer,” etc. On car bumpers you’ll see stickers proclaiming, “No hate in my state.”

These virtue-signalers are quick to post BLM signs, just so you know that they are sufficiently ‘woke.’ They fervently believe that all conservatives and anyone who voted for Trump are a hate-filled, despicable lot, who dislike immigrants, children, old people, dogs, and clean air.

Having been sheltered for decades in the liberal mainstream media bubble, these yard sign bearers have a twisted world view. For them, all news and information arrives heavily filtered through the New York Times, Washington Post, L.A. Times, Chicago Tribune, AP, Reuters, NPR, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, etc.

Untold Looney Contentions

The Left erroneously espouses that President Trump hates immigrants, a contention that is simply wrong: Unlike Biden, he didn’t want endless floods of illegal immigrants arriving, especially when orchestrated by Leftist groups continually seeking to undermine U.S. sovereignty.

Under Biden, illegal immigrants storm our borders and overrun our facilities. Contrary to Leftist drivel, they account for a disproportionately high amount of crime. They jump ahead of people who’ve been waiting in line legally for months, or years, to become U.S. citizens.

The misguided Left contended that President Trump is an anti-Semite. This is ridiculous on its face, as Ivanka Trump Kushner, his politically prominent daughter, converted to Judaism to marry a Jew, and her three children – his three grandchildren – are all Jewish. Moreover, Trump’s support for Israel is unyielding.

While Biden is pure of heart to the Left, they would have you believe that Donald Trump is a racist who harms Black people. Yet, before he ran for president, he was honored on numerous occasions by the NAACP and other African-American groups. Amazingly, the nano-second he ran for president, that all changed!

Claiming Much, Knowing Little

The Left always knows best, even when they know little, which is most of the time. If members of the Left occasionally proceeded beyond the mainstream liberal media bubble, in which they are firmly ensconced, and read more widely, these cloistered folks might realize that it is Democrats, ‘progressives’, and liberals, in general, who promulgate most of the hate in society today.

‘Love trumps hate’ is a pleasant thought, and an intriguing notion. Thus, it is shameful that Leftists are so venomous. Here are a few items and issues, out of scores more, that many of those on the Left loath:

Individuals and group who disagree with them politically, acknowledging the rights of the unborn, fair and effective voter I.D. laws, acknowledging the cerebral differences between men and women, encountering acts of patriotism, free speech on campus (unless of course they agree with it), merit-based college acceptance,  anyone who does not conform to political ‘correctness,’ maintaining U.S. sovereignty via secure borders, and African Americans who deign not to be Democrats.

They also dislike anyone who is deeply religious except Muslims, news features about illegal immigrant crime, school vouchers, returning power to state and local school boards, anyone who runs for, or wins, office as a Republican or Libertarian, and seeing 20,000+ people at Trump rallies (peaceful protests), with thousands more outside who wanted to attend — when Biden drew 10 to 50 people, if that many.

Not Tolerant Compared to Conservatives

Pew researchers found that liberals actually are less tolerant than conservatives based on liberal’s tendency to “unfriend” or to stop following someone a social media site when their viewpoints are challenged.

“Roughly four-in-ten consistent liberals on Facebook (44%) indicated they have blocked or de-friended someone” because they “disagreed with something that person posted about politics.” Only “31% of consistent conservatives” and 26% of Facebook users overall have acted similarly.

Could their ingrained lack of tolerance be the driving force behind their constant virtue-signaling? Yup. Liberals seek to feign that within them intolerance reigns.

The Right’s Love Affair With Kyrsten Sinema and the Elephant in the Room

Published

on

Many on the right are breathlessly talking about Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona as if she’s the next Ronald Reagan, fawning all over her, commenting on how beautiful she is and how they’d like to see her on a vice presidential ticket for president. It’s true she’s provided crucial assistance blocking radical leftist bills or watering them down. But overall, her voting record isn’t that much different than most Democrats. 

 

In 2018, when she first ran for the U.S. Senate, her lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union in the House of Representatives was 13. It’s only gone up to 14.59 in 2020, and is lower than it was in 2013. Similarly, The Heritage Foundation’s lifetime ranking of Sinema is 9. The truth is, she has merely opposed her own party on a few high-profile bills. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has voted against the party far more often, 8%, compared to Sinema’s miniscule 2.8%. As of June 7, she voted with President Joe Biden 100% of the time.

Democrats have been scrambling the past few years to explain Sinema’s aberrations, deliberately leaving out the most obvious explanation since it goes against their mantra — she has to in order to ensure reelection in a red state. It’s essentially the elephant in the room. They don’t want to admit that, since they’ve been falsely claiming that Arizona is turning purple or blue. Admitting Sinema votes with the Republicans because she’s worried about reelection might make it look like they admitted there was election fraud in 2020.

 

Politico said Sinema’s dissenting votes are “something of a mystery to her Democratic colleagues,” quoting numerous Democrats who said they are confused about her behavior. CNN dared to acknowledge the real reason, but said Sinema is mistaken — doubtful considering how bright Sinema is. “Part of what may be happening is that Sinema thinks that Arizona is a redder state than it actually is.” 

 

While it’s true that Sinema is no longer as radical as she was in her early days in the Arizona Legislature, when she was awarded the Vladimir I. Lenin award by the Arizona Federation of Taxpayers for being the furthest left legislator, her record since supposedly becoming a moderate in the House of Representatives is still pretty bad. 

 

She voted to convict Donald Trump in both impeachment trials. She urged her colleagues to vote for the highly partisan January 6 commission to investigate the events at the U.S. Capitol (she didn’t vote herself, citing “a personal family matter.” She worked to pass the radical DREAM Act. NARAL rated her voting record on abortion 100% in 2020 and her record on the Second Amendment is about as bad.

 

She fooled people by campaigning on a platform that sounds very centrist, avoiding all mention of the Democratic Party. She spent hundreds of thousands of dollars while running for Congress on TV ads that are so vanilla it was impossible to tell whether she was a Republican or Democrat. 

 

People can’t point to much that she’s done to oppose her party other than quibble over Biden’s Build Back Better bill and oppose abolishing the filibuster. She likely chose those issues since they are so high-profile, making her look more moderate than she really is. And there are a few more issues, such as illegal immigration and overturning Dodd-Frank, where she’s bucked the party. 

 

Sinema also seems determined to fill the role of Arizona’s late Sen. John McCain as a maverick. If he could keep getting reelected by voting against his party on a few high-profile issues, she probably figures it’s a safe move for her. 

 

Yes, we can be grateful to Sinema for blocking far left bills from her party. But she’s only doing it in order to get reelected in a red state, deep down she is still a lefty and not anyone suitable for president. Voting for someone because they’re “hot” is a terrible reason. You may as well vote for actress Alyssa Milano, who is considering running for Congress.

 

Arizona is about to get a test of how blue it’s become in the other Senate seat up for election in 2022 held by Democrat Mark Kelly. It’s considered one of the most vulnerable Democratic-held seats in the Senate. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a former director from The Goldwater Institute who is championing election integrity, is challenging him and widely expected to take the seat. Similarly, newscaster turned political candidate Kari Lake, who identifies as a “Trump Republican,” is expected to replace the more moderate Doug Ducey as governor. 

 

People point to Californians fleeing their state and moving to Arizona in droves, but only 19% of them are Democrats. It’s mainly Republicans fleeing, they are not turning Arizona blue. If anything, Arizona is becoming redder as Republicans widen their lead in voter registration. Sinema is very intelligent and understands this. Don’t be fooled by her. We can do a lot better for vice president — like a Republican.
