Seattle City Council Member Kshama Sawant Vows to Overthrow the United States and Replace with “a Socialist World”
What, would be worse? Going to hell or going to Seattle? Considering that Seattle is ruled by socialists like Kshama Sawant, I think Satan is not all that bad. She is now claiming that she and her kind will overthrow the United States and turn this country into a socialistic fourth world country.
Sawant is a communist who just helped pass the “Amazon Tax.” That tax amounts to an income tax that will be paid by Amazon and not the employee.
The tax for the top three employees alone will top two million dollars a year. Amazon is expected to start renting space outside of Seattle.
Sawant is threatening Jeff Bezos with a revolution from the citizens if he tries to avoid the tax.
We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, violent, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism, this police state.
We cannot and will not stop until we overthrow it and replace it with a world based instead on solidarity, genuine democracy, and equality – a socialist world.
I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class.
If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to defeat you.
And we will not stop there.
Because you see, we are fighting for far more than this tax, we are preparing the ground for a different kind of society.
And if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it.
Because we are coming for you and your rotten system.

Sawant has a B.S. (W@e all know what that stands for) from in computer science from the University of Mumbai and a PHD (Piling it Higher and Deeper) in economics from North Carolina State University. My father referred to people like Sawant as educated idiots and the name fits.
Many people today want socialism in this country but only because they have never had to live through it before.
