Socialist Seattle councilwoman Kshama Sawant

Doing what flaming liberal do best, biting the hand that feeds them and creating a socialist utopia, newly elected avowed Socialist Councilwoman Kshama Sawant told a group of union thug Boeing workers in Seattle if the company elects to move out of the state they, "should take over the factories, and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine."

Well great, let's just see that happen. I'm sure a bunch of union thugs who march to the tune of an avowed Socialist now on the government payroll, would be capable of running a multi-billion dollar aerospace company. Not!

If Boeing decides to take their manufacturing plant out of state, the liberal councilwoman said, "That will be nothing short of economic terrorism." She is also a proponent of a $15 an hour minimum wage. Of course the liberal mind doesn't have the math skills to figure out a $15 minimum wage is the exact "economic terrorism" they speak about that should cause McD's happy meals to rise in cost to around $11.50.

We'll see who whines about economics when that and everything else in Washington state tied to the minimum wage, like food, goes up by 50% over night.

Seattle City Councilmember-elect Kshama Sawant told Boeing machinists her idea of a radical option, should their jobs be moved out of state

“The workers should take over the factories, and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine,” Sawant announced to a cheering crowd of union supporters in Seattle’s Westlake Park Monday night.

This week, Sawant became Seattle’s first elected Socialist council member. She ran on a platform of anti-capitalism, workers’ rights, and a $15 per-hour minimum wage for Seattle workers.

On Monday night, she spoke to supporters of Boeing Machinists, six days after they rejected a contract guaranteeing jobs in Everett building the new 777X airliner for eight years, in exchange for new workers giving up their guaranteed company pensions.

Now Boeing is threatening to take those jobs to other states. “That will be nothing short of economic terrorism because it’s going to devastate the state’s economy,” she said.
