CHAZ Leader: 'I'm Not Here to Protest, I'm Here to Disrupt Until My Demands are Met'


Leftist activists in our society think they’re owed something for one reason or another. It almost seems as if they think if they complain enough people will just give in to their demands.

In a YouTube video released last week, journalist and filmmaker Ami Horowitz went inside the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) to talk to people about their goals and vision for the police-free “utopia.”

In order to get to the bottom of what the people in CHAZ want from and for the U.S., Horowitz asked one of the "leaders of this movement,” Jaiden Grayson for her take. Grayson took a very militant and confrontational stance and appeared not to care much for unity.

“Every single day that I show up here, I’m not here to peacefully protest,” Grayson said confidently. “I’m here to disrupt until my demands are met. You cannot rebuild until you break it [society] all the way down.”

Notice how Grayson said “my” instead of “our” when it came to the demands of those playing community organizer in CHAZ. She also said that she shows up “every single day.” Does she not stay in CHAZ with the rest of the people there?

Grayson, who was accompanied by at least one armed guard, sat on her high horse while spewing her self-righteousness. When Horowitz asked Grayson about the phrase “by any means necessary,” he wanted to know directly from her whether the phrase was “just a slogan.” She also doesn’t view actual violence as violence if it’s a response to violence. Got that?

“No, it’s not a slogan,” Grayson said. “It’s not even a warning. I’m letting people know what comes next. A response to violence is not violence itself.”

Grayson also couldn’t understand why people are still “bitching” about the tragic events of 9/11 when there are so many black people being killed by the system.

“You have people still bitching about 9/11,” Grayson also said. “Unbelievable! One act of terror.”

Yeah. It was only one act of terror that killed nearly 3,000 people. Think about the ignorance of Grayson’s statement. If you took the amount of unarmed black people killed by police in 2019, nine, it would take an estimated 330 years to match the number of 9/11 victims.

Among Grayson’s other comments, she advocated for the abolishment - not the defunding - but the abolishment of the Seattle Police Department (SPD) and the criminal justice system in general. She wants them to cease existing, because of another ignorant reason.

“The unraveling that happens to that system is also exactly what will fuel the black minds in the black bodies that will recreate a new world,” Grayson said.

By the way, Grayson considers herself an "African" brought to America. No word on why she stays in this country if it's so bad. There’s radical leftism, and then there’s people like Grayson.
