Republicans Want To Isolate Seattle


Republican wants to introduce a bill in the Legislature that would lay the framework to eventually make the city of Seattle its own county, too,

Senate Bill 5932 from Sen. Phil Fortunato would not specifically separate Seattle from the rest of King County but it would create procedures for creating a new county in the future.

If it were passed, Fortunato’s ultimate goal is to see Seattle, which he says influences much of what happens elsewhere in the county, venture out on its own.

“Seattle has gone so far off the left cliff that the rest of the county is paying for Seattle’s craziness,” Fortunato said. “So my dream is Seattle could be King County, and they could do whatever the heck they want, They could have a $25 minimum wage. They could give away free needles. They can do whatever the heck they want, they just can’t do it with my money.”

The bill is being proposed during the special session of the Legislature.

King County Executive Dow Constantine, a Democrat, said the Legislature has more important things to do right now.

  1. There is some process whereby the Dihms have taken over cities. It may be due to occupying key positions, or creating key rules. This needs to be understood and unwound if possible.

  2. I wish the same could be done to isolate Atlanta by splitting south Fulton county with Atlanta away from north Fulton county. We in north Fulton, an hour away from Atlanta, pay for every crackpot affirmative scheme and welfare boondoggle conjured up by John Lewis, Hank Johnson, and Atlanta’s mayor and city council.

    Milton County lives again!

  3. There’s no hope for that hellhole. Just like CA, it was once a beautiful place to take your family to enjoy, but has steadily gone downhill and become a drug/crime infested haven for addicts, thieves and losers of all sorts.

  4. They should do that to every Blue State big city. Manhattan, Chicago, SF, LA… throw them to the dogs. Make them pay for their employee pensions and high taxes without help from the STATE… see what happens in 10 years. (probably won’t take that long)

  5. I thought it was the leftists that wanted to establish their own country when Trump was elected. Now they are whining that the legislature has more important things to do? I would think a lot of Washington residents would disagree.

  6. @ Wyatt

    Of course, you know the answer to your post already. They want control over everyone as much as possible and this would curtail that. They always know what’s good for everyone else, donchuknow.

  7. @Dadof4: When it comes to establishing an independent governmental unit, progressives know with near absolute certainty that the productive sector of society will leave; therefore it is necessary to make sure that there is no place to go. Seattle progressives know that if the city is put in a separate county, eventually Seattle will consist largely of hipsters, drug addicts and coffee houses.

    Different areas have different tolerances. California has vast natural beauty and great weather, so California can punish its citizens more and still get away with it – although there is still a business exodus from that state. Illinois – not so much, although I find much of the state attractive in its own way. But at least according to several reports I have read, both Chicago and the state as a whole are losing residents.

    I have several progressive friends who, after Trump’s election, were adamant about California suceding from the United States. But they know (and will not expressly admit) that a separate nation of California will not suceed, so they have dropped this idea.

  8. ha! yup, Wyatt.

    “..progressives know with near absolute certainty that the productive sector of society will leave”

    Why you never hear them talk about this consequence. They know it will kill their plans if they admit it out loud. Only speak of ways to keep control of anyone opposing them. Truly evil once you realize this. No freedom for you! Get back in line!

    They want their own jizzya tax on everyone.

  9. Brilliant. Why should the libtards in the city voting in all their crap with their socialist city council and child molester mayor get subsidized by the rest of the county that doesn’t agree with their policies.

  10. Yep, the difference between a socialist and a communist is that the socialist keeps his host (the productive) alive while the communist kills it outright.

  11. Seattle is a shithole, but let me clue ya’ all into something that everyone is overlooking, the east side i.e. Bellevue Republican establishment is, in their own way, every bit as bad as the worst Seattle has to offer. I don’t prefer one over the other. In fact I have this to say in favor of the Seattle Stalinists virtues over the east side establishment Republicans, the Seattle Stalinists don’t lie to their base to get elected and then dry shave those who believe in them, the east side establishment Republicans stock in trade is to lie to their base to get elected and then screw them every chance they get.

  12. Just set up stands on every other street corner dispensing free 100% pure Fentanyl and issue a do not resuscitate order for all drug overdoses. The problem will solve itself.

  13. Seattle, like every trust fund baby, knows that living the lifestyle they desire requires more money than they can make on their own.

  14. reboot, it’s not the whole state that’s at fault. Outside of a narrow strip on either side of I-5, most of WA is fairly conservative (some areas more so than others). We would LOVE to see Seattle isolated and barred from forcing us to pay for their … whims and pipe-dreams.

  15. NavyBratRet, I lived in Bremerton for
    5 years, I’ve seen the entire insanity. I’ve
    also seen commipornia college students on the
    streets trying to test socialist bills to run
    in the elections there. You guys gotta get
    rid of your socialists. Ain’t nobody else can
    do it.

  16. We’re working on it, reboot. Unfortunately, it’s not always who votes and how they vote, it’s who COUNTS the votes that matter. And as long as the unions count the votes up here…But we’ll keep chipping away as long as we can.
