Protesters In Seattle’s Streets Are Shocked That Cars Drive Through Their Tik Tok Videos, Er, Protests

If you’re dancing in the streets to put stuff up on Chinese owned Tik Tok and other social media, “protesting”, don’t be surprised when vehicles drive through

Marchers say hit-and-run that killed protester on I-5 isn’t the only time they’ve been targeted by drivers

Demonstrators protesting racial injustice and police brutality had marched on Interstate 5 in Seattle for 19 consecutive nights without incident before a driver bypassed Washington State Patrol barricades early Saturday morning to careen into a group of marchers, killing one and seriously injuring another.

The fatal hit-and-run drew national attention, with lawmakers expressing shock and horror over the death of Summer Taylor, 24. The driver also hit Diaz Love, 32, who remains in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center but is improving, a hospital spokesperson said Sunday evening.

Why does a hotbed of Modern Socialism need to protest? Are they saying they’re racists? And most of them are uber-white. An if the police were closing a major highway, I-5, how did the driver get on it?

If protesters were blocking off sections, then why is anyone surprised someone was driving on a highway? Interestingly, none of the Seattle media, nor the few national outlets covering this, are mentioning that driver was black.

But the collision — which demonstrators say seemed intentional — isn’t the first time cars have sped into the ongoing protests in Seattle sparked by the killing of George Floyd, a Black man in Minneapolis, by a white police officer.

“Everyone wants to use the excuse of us being on the freeway,” said a protest organizer, who gave their name as Nicole, in a video statement broadcast on Facebook. “This happens to us on a daily basis. Cars try to run through us on a daily basis, no matter where we are.”

Um, because you’re in the streets? Made to convey vehicles from place to place. The article mentions one “incident” in Seattle and a couple in other states. Funny how they don’t mention the ones where people were driving then attacked, such as in Utah.

In the aftermath of the fatal hit-and-run, the Washington State Patrol said Saturday it would begin arresting people for walking on the freeway because the agency can no longer guarantee protesters’ safety, said Capt. Ron Mead, who made the decision to close I-5.

So, after 19 nights of “protests”, the police plan to do their jobs?

At the request of the State Patrol, the Washington State Department of Transportation announced June 4 it would close the I-5 express lanes for several days “in order to keep all people safe during the demonstrations in the city.”

According to Washington law, pedestrians are not permitted to walk in the center of the highway, although WSDOT may restrict vehicle traffic for funeral processions or parades or for pedestrians or other nonmotorized traffic.

Illegal. Do you know why people aren’t allowed to hitchhike or walk on the side of a highway? Of course you do.

The crowd was dancing the Cupid Shuffle when, 45 minutes later, Dawit Kelete, 27, drove his white Jaguar the wrong way up a freeway exit ramp and swerved into the protesters at high speed, killing Taylor and injuring Love.

Sounds more like they were using the notion of a protest to simply do their thing for social media.

    45 minutes later? Sounds like the cupid shuffle dancing was unrelated to this incident.

    Summer Taylor, huh? It seems that no one wants to tell you that Miss Taylor was actually a ‘non-binary’ person, and Diaz Love was, well to judge by her picture, another whacko.

    These two young women were crazy, which was why they were standing in the middle of the road. Miss Taylor is stone-cold graveyard dead, and Miss Love possibly on her way to her eternal reward as well, because they were both mentally ill.

      They were both protesting in the road because they are organized activists for the democratic party and this was their assignment. Dear dead/injured lesbian activists: the white cis-gendered patriarchy thanks you for your sacrifice. Joe Biden can’t win without your help.
