Welcome to “Bizarro World” Seattle. Last night after the May Day march, the antifa “anarchists” were anything but. And today, civic discourse descended into the pit of despair as bluster, posturing, speechifying and flat-out verbal abuse displaced serious policy debate on complex issues.
Two resolutions were adopted in the City Council’s meeting this afternoon. Both are well intentioned, and will probably end up doing good things. But they way they passed — and the way one almost didn’t — speaks volumes about the current level of dysfunction in City Hall.
