#2 Cool. Amazon can complete their move to Texas with their thousands of $150K/year jobs.

Also H1-B Sawant forgot to say "Elizabeth" after "We are coming for you."

#5 ^ She squeaked by last time. The all in / fold principle says she will lose next time or be elected mayor. If all the productive people leave Seattle she will be elected mayor for sure.

#7 In case anyone thinks Sawant is an isolated case, there are thousands like her in Seattle. The question arises, what element of American industry wants to remain in a decaying city?

#8 what element of American industry wants to remain in a decaying city?

When the hipness factor is outweighed by the unrest, crime, taxes and cost of real estate, businesses will move on. Trendy addresses have always been considered a good recruiting characteristic. Some businesses will die on that hill.

#9 Microsoft has been scattering its R&D labs all over the world. When the Seattle tax locusts finish stripping the city bare, they will set their sights on outlying areas. See: 'Allegheny Regional Asset District" as an example.

#10 While she is comedicly self involved, rest assured the revolution IS absolutely coming for you. There is no too rural, too anonymous, too broke, too rich. They will have your obeisance or they will have your life. It is a well established pattern and they sure haven't deviated from it thus far.

#11 Chicago is to cars as Seattle is to tech.

#12 You have to wonder whether there is some natural limit to the number of corporate headquarters Dallas can accommodate.

But hey, if she really wants Seattle to be an island of communism then (1) she's got to build a wall around the city, uh, to prevent jealous non-Seattleites from entering and (2) Seattle has to have its own currency. Let's call it "the Sawant" and let it float against all major currencies. By the end of the year the exchange rate will be 10 million Sawants to the dollar.

#15 So, can we agree that we are dealing with an anti-American, anti-freedom, totalitarian, statist fascist?

J1. She came as a student.

#17 It is nice when dictators make themselves known long before they have real power.

If she is re-elected it will say a lot about Seattle voters

#18 ^ I know family member in Seattle.

They would vote for her in a heartbeat if she vomited leftist talking points (i.e., environment, racial, social programs, etc).

#21  Mount Rainier is only napping...

Along with Cthulhu and who knows what else.

I admit I didn't watch the video, but it is interesting to note that everything in that image - machine-made textiles, eye-glasses, optics, video-conferencing, electricity and even Shwarma herself who presumably arrived via airplane - all products of Western Civilization, AKA the White Man. Of course, you have to be a special sort of idiot to think that any of that involves skin color.

#22 J1. She came as a student.

She probably came to the US on a H-4 visa. Though she was a software engineer in India, there is nothing I can find that she worked as one in the US. She was rotten baggage on her husband's H1-B.

H-1B visa holders can bring immediate family members (spouse and children under 21) to the United States under the H-4 visa category as dependents.
