Seattle mayor who defended CHOP is outraged after protesters showed up at her home

It is always about themselves with the left.

A few weeks ago she was calling this a love fest.

Now that SHE and HER HOME is involved she doesn’t like it. (Admitedly her “change” has been morphing before this).

I have a feeling Mayor Durkan has absolutely no problem with guns . . . . As long as they are from HER people used to protect HER.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan expressed outrage after Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at her home Sunday afternoon, despite her previous support and defense of the “CHOP” encampment.

Protesters targeted her home after Durkan announced last week that the city would no longer support the Capitol Hill Organized Protest encampment and would seek to remove the concrete barriers that helped define the autonomous zone. But the CHOP remains intact. . . .

. . . "Mayor Durkan and her family are in the state program to keep their address confidential because of the death threats mostly related to her work as Seattle’s U.S. Attorney under President Obama. . . .

. . . KING-TV spoke to one protester about why they targeted her home.

“We came down to Jenny Durkan’s mansion to bring the demands of the movement and of the families who have been impacted by police violence, uh, to her doorstep and she seems to not be able to hear our demands any other way,” she said.

Complicating the matter was yet another shooting Monday morning at the CHOP. One black 16-year-old teen was shot and killed, and a 14-year-old was injured and is in critical condition. Police are investigating the incident, but no suspects have been identified.

Here’s a news video of the mayor’s response . . .

Seattle Mayor Durkan: ‘We Could Have the Summer of Love’ – We Have Four Blocks That Are ‘More Like a Block Party’

IAN HANCHETT

11 Jun 2020

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) stated that in the city, there are four blocks that are “more like a block party atmosphere” and “We could have the summer of love.”

Durkan said, “We’ve got four blocks in Seattle that you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere. It’s not an armed takeover. It’s not a military junta. We will make sure that we can restore this. But we have block parties and the like in this part of Seattle all the time. It’s known for that. So, I think the president, number one, there is no threat right now to the public. And we’re looking, we’re taking that very seriously. We’re meeting with businesses and residents. But what the president threatened is illegal and unconstitutional, and the fact that he can think he can just tweet that and not have ramifications is just wrong.”

Host Chris Cuomo then asked, “The counter will be, block parties don’t take over a municipal building, let alone a police station and destroy it, basically thumbing their nose at any sense of civic control. . . .

. . . We are — we have our public safety approach in one way. And during this time, a number one priority every American city has is to protect the First Amendment right. Our country was born out of protest. The right to gather, the right to protest, the right to challenge government when it’s wrong is our most fundamental constitutional right. It’s a reason it’s the First Amendment. And as a mayor of the city, I will do everything to protect that right and balance the public safety. I think not only can we do both, I think we have to do both.” . . .

. . .Cuomo later asked, “How long do you think Seattle, and those few blocks, looks like this?”

Durkan responded, “I don’t know. We could have the summer of love.” . . .

Doesn’t she know that parties are driving the spike?

But she’s . . . upset. . . now, trying to find who leaked her address.
As a former Federal DA, she’s afforded confidentiality under the law and it would be illegal to enable what happened. She’ll have to move now.

I repeat what I said in the other thread: like many progressive elites, she can sure dish it out, but she can’t take it when it comes back at her.

Gung ho for weeks about CHAZ/CHOP while completely unmindful of the toll it took on the residents and business owners within the zone and close to it, not to mention the toll in body count. But once she got a taste of what she had allowed to happen to those residents and business owners? Whoa! what a turnabout!

I am so not feeling sorry for her. She dug her own hole and it’s interesting that everyone who’s anyone in the Democrat and progressive ranks are suddenly abandoning her.

This is so typical of the rich white leftists: they make decisions for the rest of us for which they refuse to bear the costs if they can help it.

By the way, how the heck does Durkan afford a $5m home on a US DA’s salary and then a mayor’s salary? Turns out she’s gay and came out long ago. Ok I don’t have a problem with that by itself. But she doesn’t want to share any information about her partner, Dana Garvey. Here are some interesting answers:

from the article:

Even though we are referring to Garvey as Durkan’s “partner,” they are not registered domestic partners and they are not married. Because of this, Durkan is able to shield Garvey from much of the public disclosures that the spouses of previous Seattle mayors have been subjected to.

Seattle mayors, like all city employees, are required to file financial disclosure forms that clearly describe what they own and their business relationships. That disclosure requirement extends to the spouses of politicians because Washington is a “community property” state, where your assets are shared with your legal partners, according to Wayne Barnett, executive director of the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission. These disclosures are intended to prevent public officials from making decisions that directly benefit their own finances. We wouldn’t want an official awarding contracts to their own business, and disclosing their assets publicly helps prevent such moves.

These laws apply to Durkan, who filed a financial disclosure statement in which she said she was worth $5.75 million (including a checking account with more than a million dollars in it and stock in Costco and a company called Nanometrics). But what Garvey is worth (and what she invests in) is anyone’s guess.

By all indications, Garvey is worth a lot of money. Not only has she worked in high-paying corporate jobs, and not only does she own her own companies, but she very likely started her life with some change in the bank. Her father was a Louisiana telecom magnate who sold his wireless telecommunications firm for $400 million, according to an obituary published in the Times-Picayune in New Orleans.

Maybe the money was inherited like Trump’s money was?

What a fraud this lady is. Suddenly it isn’t so fun when the target is painted on you. She’d be an embarrassment to most normal cities in America.

Notice that most of the mayors of the cities with riots and insurrection are Democrats. They’ve lost control.

The rules only apply to conservatives and white folk. Protestors can do what they want, we don’t stop arrest looters and statue topplers, and if black Americans want their own song because simply being American isn’t good enough, we’ll coddle them too.

What’s that saying, “what goes around comes around” lol

It must REALLY hurt because what the Left wants more than anyting is control. Opinions, facts, and feelings contrary to their dogma cannot be tolerated by the “tolerant” Left.
