Socialist Seattle City Council Member Calls For Boeing Factories To Be Confiscated & Given To Workers
The only reason the libs in the: whole Democrat Party aren’t calling for this kind of lunacy is that they don’t think they can get away with it.
Seattle’s newly elected Socialist councilwoman accused aerospace and defense giant Boeing on Monday of “economic terrorism” and told Boeing machinists they should consider taking “over the factories.”

“The workers should take over the factories, and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine,” Kshama Sawant told a group of activists in the city’s Westlake Park.
Sawant’s comments were made at a rally organized by machinists after they rejected a deal that would reduce pensions for union members in return for guaranteed jobs in Everett, Wash., building 777X Boeing airliners for eight years.
Now Boeing is considering taking those jobs elsewhere.
“That will be nothing short of economic terrorism because it’s going to devastate the state’s economy,” Sawant told the crowd.
If Boeing tries to move out, Sawant said, union workers should simply take over the Everett airplane-building factory.
She referred to this as “democratic ownership.”
“The only response we can have if Boeing executives do not agree to keep the plant here is for the machinists to say the machines are here, the workers are here, we will do the job, we don’t need the executives. The executives don’t do the work, the machinists do,” she said.
It was a better country when Commies like this were getting blacklisted instead of being voted into office by enthusiastic liberals. On the other hand, these kind of left-wing fruit loops slowly but surely sow the seeds of their doom by scaring businesses away. The liberals in Detroit could tell Seattle all about it if they were self-aware enough to realize what they’ve done to themselves.
