Even though the courthouse and plenty of Seattle’s streets are covered in human fecal matter thanks to the socialist policies that have pushed people into poverty, a democrat has decided the streets cannot be cleaned up using a pressure washer. Using this method to get the feces off the streets is racist said city council member Larry Gossett in a tweet.
The King County courthouse in downtown Seattle is located near the social service centers and several homeless shelters. A tent city has sprung up in the little park outside. There have been several assaults on courthouse employees, and even two attacks on jurors In May and June, leading to citizens summoned for jury duty to voice concerns about their safety, according to a report by RT.
Judges Laura Inveen and Jim Rogers, backed by King County Sheriff John Urquhart, asked the county to do something about the violence and the fecal matter that continues to pile up, the Seattle Times reported last month. Among their requests was a daily power-wash of the sidewalks, which “reek of urine and excrement.”
Bu Councilmember Larry Gossett objected to the measure because power-washing “brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists,” according to the Seattle Times.
Seattle is trying to figure out how to clean poop off their streets but A Democrat Councilman doesn’t like the idea of using a pressure washer hose because it reminds him of hoses used against civil rights activists…
You can’t make this stuff up. Insane.https://t.co/fxqdvmRYa2

High-pressure water hoses were used by police in Birmingham, Alabama against civil rights protesters back in 1963. They have also been used to wash sidewalks in most American cities on a daily basis ever since, without being accused of racism – until now. We have democrats to thank for the ridiculous and unending racism that’s lingering.
This is 2019 when everything is racist – the New York Times says so – and anyone who doesn’t call it out is assumed to be an enabler, according to the rules of the “woke” cancel culture. So, the sidewalks of Seattle must remain covered in human waste, lest someone gets offended. -RT
“Gossett’s concern here is nothing short of insane,” wrote Kat Timpf in National Review. “What else are you going to do — not wash them? Because I really, really reject the idea that leaving sidewalks covered with human bodily waste is the less offensive move in this (or any) situation.” And many on Twitter agreed that Gossett’s view was insane.
These people have serious mental issues. They shouldn't be running anything.

I guess the Seattle Fire Department will have to stop using hoses to put out fires then???

Gossett claimed pressure washers were racist in 2017, however, it’s 2019, the streets are still filled with human poop and the solution from democrats is to not wash them. Because…racism. This is now our dystopian reality.
