Antifa believes this is their moment.
And in many ways, they are right, considering that many places refuse to stop their violence.
But that is all changing after police dropped the hammer to destroy their biggest dream.
Following the death of George Floyd, Antifa jumped at the chance to foment violence.
They wasted no time and destroyed cities, attacked innocent Americans, and even killed multiple people, including retired Police Captain David Dorn in St. Louis.
And amid the chaos, they took their biggest stand in Seattle.
They formed what was initially known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), which later changed to Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP).
To do this they took over multiple city blocks, including a police station, and refused to allow any police inside.
Naturally, chaos and violence happened very quickly, with multiple different shootings resulting in two people dying.
After it formed, left-wing politicians lined up to excuse their lawlessness.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan even denied that any violence was occurring, calling the area a “street festival,” and arguing that it was going to be the “Summer of Love” in Seattle.
But that “Summer of Love” was very short-lived, considering that in recent days, the police finally shut down the area following a class action lawsuit filed by business-owners and residents in the area.
Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best made clear that they shut down the area due to the violent lawlessness occurring.
“Our job is to support peaceful demonstrations but what has happened on these streets over the last few weeks is lawless and it’s brutal and bottom line it is simply unacceptable,” Best told reporters.
Since its inception, President Donald Trump has offered to assist in shutting it down.
He said that he was just waiting for a call from Seattle’s Mayor, and he would use the full force of the government to ensure law and order.
And President Trump has done more to console victims of the violence in the area than any official in Seattle.
Trump called the father of 19-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr., who was killed in the CHOP.
“Incredibly, Donald Trump called me,” said 50-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr. “The President of the United States called me today. He gave his condolences, and me, I’m not a political guy. I told him, ‘Nobody likes you.’ I’m real. Donald Trump called me and he didn’t have to call me.”
Thankfully, this disaster is over.
But there is no telling what Antifa will do next.
