Fox News, aside from photoshopping images from video and claiming that they are authentic stills, is simply run by idiots. Being devoid of journalistic ethics seems to be a feature in a Fox News propaganda operation unaware of boogaloos.
Falling for stuff on Reddit is gravy. Apparently Fox News and the Daily Cellar(sic) believe that Seattle rapper Raz is CHAZ’s warlord version of Cinque, late of the Symbionese Liberation Army.
However, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone is something else when one tries to get past the blather of media industry products.
“#CHAZ The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), referred to simply as the Zone and formerly known as Free Capitol Hill, is a self-declared autonomous zone in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The Zone, covering approximately six city blocks, was established on June 8, 2020, during the George Floyd protests, after Capitol Hill’s East Precinct building was abandoned by the Seattle Police Department (SPD). Local governance in the Zone is decentralized, with the goal of creating a neighborhood without police. Purported demands associated with the Zone include rent control, the reversal of gentrification, the abolition or defunding of police, funding of community health, and the dropping of charges against those arrested for involvement in the protests.”
Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Fox News coverage:
1) Photoshop same armed man to create false visual narratives of violence and lawlessness
2) conveniently forget defense of 2nd A
2) Include an image of Old Navy being looted when there is not an Old Navy in the occupied area.
Absolute propaganda. pic.twitter.com/JsOAH44Yr8

Weird though how conservatives like Trump loved it when heavily armed "anarchists" took over federal property in Oregon, did millions in damage, and threatened to shoot down any law enforcement or federal troops.
Of course, that was about COWS and not civil rights, so… https://t.co/7S1hM9vPZg

And we now don’t have clear sense of who the agents provocateurs, so perhaps Trump is right(sic) when he says Seattle is being run by Anarchists. Others seem to want to leave that impression in other urban locales.
The Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment Memorial was one of 16 public art works damaged when thousands of protesters swarmed Boston Common on Sunday night.
A $3-million dollar restoration project for the sculpture dedicated to the African American soldiers who fought in the Civil War was granted clearance just last week. The outbreak of the coronavirus had delayed the project.
The conservator’s recent prep work protected the front of the bronze relief with plywood, but its granite backside was vandalized with four-letter words and phrases including “Black Lives Matter,” “No Justice, No Peace,” and “Police are Pigs.”
“In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.” – Guy Debord – The Society of Spectacle
Because the parody often approaches actual state propaganda:
"Safe space" is western term for sheltered area in which childish adults and simpletons may hide themselves from unpleasantness of the world and consequences of their own actions, while being coddled by enablers. pic.twitter.com/ZpvBab67Gs
