Seattle is already panicking over Donald Trump’s presidency due to their sanctuary city status. Now it turns out that a member of the city council, who is an avowed socialist, is using government resources to plan anti-Trump protests.

Seattle Council Member Using Gov Resources To Organize Anti-Trump Protests
A Seattle city council member is openly using government resources to organize anti-Trump protests in collaboration with a radical socialist organization.
Councilmember Kshama Sawant posted an open letter to her “fellow activists” on the City of Seattle’s taxpayer-funded website, urging participation in anti-Trump “Occupy Inauguration” protests organized by the Socialist Alternative Seattle. More than 3,500 people have already committed to joining the protests, according to the event’s Facebook page.
“A right-wing anti-worker bigot has been elected President. Donald Trump’s cabinet is a who’s who of multi-billionaires with long records of hostility towards workers, the labor movement, women’s rights, and the planet,” Sawant charges in her letter, which was posted on New Years Eve. She goes on to urge visitors to the government website to engage in “resistance” to the president-elect.
Here’s the key passage in the report:
The group, which claims to have “spearheaded” Sawant’s political campaign, stands in “political solidarity” with the Committee for a Workers’ International, a far-left organization that calls for a “Marxist programme” to end capitalism.
In short, Sawant is using taxpayer resources to organize anti-Trump protests sponsored by a radical socialist organization that brags about its ties to global Marxists.
This is an elected member of Seattle’s city council!
How is she being allowed to do this with taxpayer money?
