Kshama Sawant Blames Seattle CHOP Autonomous Zone Shootings on Capitalism

Two people were shot dead Monday in Seattle's lefty anti-capitalist CHOP (Capitol Hill Occupied Protest) zone.

So what did Seattle socialist city council member Kshama Sawant blame for the killings? Capitalism.

"Deepest condolences from Socialist Alternative and my Council office to the family and friends and fellow activists of the community member who was tragically killed in the drive-by shooting at the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP)," she tweeted.

"While we await details of this tragic killing, it highlights capitalism's brutality & endemic violence. Our movement rejects insinuations & falsehoods perpetuated by corporate & conservative media that this violence is outcome of CHOP or of our movement," she continued.

There you go. Why deal with reality when you can just blame capitalism?



  1. Who knew that there was capitalism in Seattle?

  2. The Idiocracy is flexing its non existent mental muscles ... AGAIN

  3. Wikipedia tells us that Sawant grew up in Mumbai but "After moving to the United States, she was shocked by the level of poverty and decided to abandon software engineering." I guess the level of poverty in Mumbai was just dandy for her.

    She also lost her father at age 13, so she's probably dealing with an impressive amount of anger.
