MADISON — In case you haven’t heard, a new country launched last week. The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ, rose up to represent a six-block area in the city formerly known as Seattle. CHAZ has no government, no police, no rules. It’s paradise, like college without classes.
According to King 5 News, “businesses inside the zone put out free food, medical supplies, masks and other necessities to help sustain protesters.” That was great while it lasted but by Friday, CHAZIANS took to Twitter to establish a supply chain for everything from vegan food, shoes, tents, bedding and clothing to cigarettes, cellphone cards and body lotion. Oh, and Gatorade. Lots of Gatorade.
Apparently, CHAZ is really more like college without the classes, dorm room and meal plan. And with no allowance or steady income, CHAZIANS have to grow their own weed in “The People’s Garden.” The same garden that was raided by homeless people who stole their food.
Reality has a way of harshing your mellow.
But don’t you worry about these revolutionaries. If the guilt-ridden Seattle progressives don’t continue to feed and clothe the citizens of CHAZ, they can always go back to their parent’s basement.
