New York Times Forced to Admit BLM Terrorized Seattle Business Owners

( New York Times is probably the wokest newspaper in the United States, but some facts are just completely impossible to challenge and the sheer horror and terror inflicted on the businesses of Seattle by Black Lives Matter and Antifa is one of those facts. The far-left newspaper was effectively forced to admit this in a report published on Friday in which they discussed the terror caused to local businesses who were affected by the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.”

In case you (somehow) missed it, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone was an “occupied protest” that occurred earlier this year in Seattle. It took over six blocks of the city and Mayor Jenny Durkan allowed it to happen, despite the fact that it forced businesses to close and resulted in murders, robberies, and rapes.

The report published on Friday detailed the experiences of small business owners in the city who were affected by the protest.

“Young white men wielding guns would harangue customers as well as Mr. [Faizel] Khan, a gay man of Middle Eastern descent who moved here from Texas so he could more comfortable be out,” the report said. “To get into his coffee shop, he sometimes had to seek the permission of self-appointed armed guards to cross a border they erected.”

Of course, the New York Times couldn’t resist slipping in some blame on white people. Even though many of the people armed with weapons in the CHAZ were black.

“But he considers himself lucky – and he was,” the report continued. “Even weeks after the protests, blocks of his previously bustling neighborhood remained boarded up and covered in shattered glass. Many business owners are scared to speak out, Mr. Khan said, because of worries that they would be targeted further.”

Let’s be clear about this. These businesses have been terrified so much that they don’t even want to speak out about the horrors of being subject to this “occupied protest” for fear of being targeted by violent far-left extremists again.

The full article is very revealing, but it tells a story we’ve heard before. Black Lives Matter and Antifa are willing to terrorize and destroy the lives of anyone who doesn’t agree with them…or disapproves of their methods.
