Wednesday Under the Fedora Thoughts (Mostly Seattle Edition)


If you want to understand why the left was so insistent on POTUS not having that Tulsa Rally look no further than Seattle.

For a month the mainstream media insited that what was happening in Chaz/Chop/Seattle Autonomous Zone (or as I call it Clueless in Seattle) was a block party when the president tweeted out against it both the mayor and the Governor ridiculed it. Rapes, assaults the handing out of weapons and even shootings didn’t change their tune

During his rally watch by over 7 million he brought it up again and said he’s ready to help clean it up as soon as they ask and viola suddenly the mayor thinks it’s time for it to end.

Just a coincidence I’m sure


One thing that I regularly argue is that reality doesn’t care what kind of fantasy you build for yourself, in the end it always asserts itself.

Here is an example of Reality asserting itself in Seattle

Coronavirus pandemic or not, an investment advisory company is leaving the cultural unrest in Seattle and moving its headquarters to Phoenix’s Camelback Corridor.

” … The unrest that has taken place in the city of Seattle … there is really is not a downtown business community today,” Smead Capital Management, President and CEO Cole Smead told KTAR News 92.3 FM.

People may give lip service and even dollars to BLM etc but when it comes to their own skin, they become conservative in a hurry.


The Mayor’s sudden reversal is causing a lot of schadenfreude on the right side of twitter but I submit and suggest that while all of this is fun what really matters is what happens in November.

If Seattle re-elects this same crowd it will be a signal to the business community and the populace that this can and will happen again.

If you live in Seattle, your city’s future is up to you. I submit and suggest unless your plan is to buy up land cheap and build a compound for yourself it might not be a good idea to re-elect these folks


One of the oddities of the net is that you will get the same story framed different ways. I was downstairs on my backup computer when DaWife mentioned something on Pam Geller’s site suggesting Seattle’s Mayor had moved in on Chop/chaz etc. I had just installed reinstalled Brave on the machine so I didn’t have a bookmark to her site there so I did a quick search for her to get there. Instead I got the SPLC listing and a dozen articles about how horrible she is. That’s when I realized the default search engine was “google” I switch the default search engine to Duck Duck Go and searched again. Entry one? Pam’s Site. (Turned out the story was the same report that she changed her mind).

That type of bias against conservatives is in play every day all over the world and the effect it has is insidious.


Finally to the surprise of nobody who has been paying attention lately the “NASCAR Noose” turned out to be a hoax, a garage pull.

I think the backlash against all this stuff is going to be spectacular come election day and the reckoning the week after the election will be worse.

One thought on “Wednesday Under the Fedora Thoughts (Mostly Seattle Edition)

  1. Well, I hope that you are right about the backlash, but I am not very hopeful myself. The folks in Seattle have been voting progressive for decades, and I don’t think that even this will change more than a few minds that are on the margin. The human mind is very creative in making rationalizations and excuses to try and overcome the cognitive dissonance that presents itself. Hope you are right though.
