Seattle’s Autonomous Zone Has Its First Warlord; Local Rapper Raz Simone Takes Over

The nation of CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) in what used to be Seattle was set up by antifa earlier this week.

CHAZ has its first self declared dictator/warlord. Seattle based rapper Raz Simone evidently deputized himself and his crew, and they are patrolling the streets, regulating any unauthorized activity in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

They’ve already started assaulting people who are engaging in unauthorized activity:

Note that they even announce themselves as “the police of the community now”

So basically they’ve declared themselves to be the authority, and they operate with impunity, as they go around assaulting whomever they deem to be breaking laws that don’t exist.

Report: Antifa Sets Up Mafia-Like Shakedown Racket In Seattle 'No Cop' Zone

As if antifa’s takeover of the Seattle East Police Precinct and the surrounding areas wasn’t frightening – and galling – enough, now it’s being reported that the violent leftist enterprise has set up a Chicago-mob-style shakedown or extortion racket. Protection rackets can’t be far behind.

The mayor removed the cops from the area on Monday. Soon, antifa and protesters set up the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ). Now it appears, a “warlord” of sorts has taken over the zone.

A shakedown racket goes something like this. A business owner wants to do, uh, business. A gang or mob comes on the scene and tells the business owners that it would be in their best interest to give the mob what they want. In a simple shakedown, the mobsters just take what they want.

In a protection racket, which usually follows, the antifa mafia says to the owner, “it sure would be a shame if anything happened to your business,” followed by, “I can guarantee your business is safe – as long as you pay me a regular fee.”

You can look at it as an extortion scam, or, as this fellow believes, it’s just a Robin Hood-like move from “a place of more privilege to less privilege and deemed righteously woke” – at the point of a gun or a can of kerosene and a match, that is.
