You see the ‘smile’ logo almost everywhere you go.
But in one major city, that famous grin may soon be absent from the streets and doorways.
Because Amazon just decided to vacate this city due to a rise in violent crime.
Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, is a flaming radical leftist.
He’s helped the socialist politicians who’ve worked to defund police departments around the country.
He’s also joined his billionaire socialist buddy George Soros in funding prosecutors and district attorneys who don’t prosecute crimes, including violent crimes.
And not surprisingly, defunding the police and not prosecuting criminals has led to a huge spike in – yup! Violent crimes!
And this is especially true in hard-hit Seattle, WA, where Antifa terrorists and BLM criminals have terrorized and destroyed large sections of the city for almost two years with no repercussions.
Now, in an ironic twist, Amazon has announced they will be relocating its Seattle office due to the rampant violence that continues to plague the dystopian city.
A spokesman for the global tech behemoth said that more than 1,800 employees working at their Seattle location will be offered an alternative location outside of Seattle for their safety.
The statement read: “Given recent incidents near 3rd and Pine, we’re providing employees currently at that location with alternative office space elsewhere. We are hopeful that conditions will improve and that we will be able to bring employees back to this location when it is safe to do so.”
KOMO News in Seattle reported that several deadly shootings had been plaguing this section of downtown for a few weeks.
In fact, several companies with offices in downtown Seattle had already been allowing their employees to work remotely because of the surge in violence.
But a new low came on March 2nd when 15-year-old Michael Del Bianco was shot and killed on 3rd Avenue and Pine Street, right near Amazon’s office building.
Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell’s office released a statement claiming “[he] is working every day to make downtown a safe and thriving neighborhood for residents, workers, and businesses.”
“Mayor Harrell will continue to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety in collaboration with police and safety advocates, community members, service providers, and businesses, including Amazon, to activate, revitalize, and restore downtown for all.”
But this statement – or any promise from the Mayor – means nothing to the crime-weary residents of Seattle.
They have watched their once beautiful city be destroyed first by Antifa and BLM “activists” who committed arson, robberies, destruction of property, and even murders – and then again from policies like defunding the police and not arresting criminals who commit “non-violent” crimes.
So, basically, Jeff Bezos’ support of these ‘woke’ radical leftist causes is the very reason his own employees now have to relocate out of Seattle.
