Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant (Socialist Alternative) gave a speech Tuesday night after passage by the city council of the so-called Amazon Tax in which she vowed to overthrow the United States, replacing the government and society with a “socialist world.”

HAL TURNER REMARK: Strip her of citizenship and DEPORT HER.   She clearly lied when she swore the oath of citizenship to uphold the Constitution of the United States.  Lying in an immigration procedure, voids it.

Sawant, 46, immigrated from India as an adult with a B.S. in computer science from the University of Mumbai received in 1994. Once in the U.S., Sawant earned a Ph.D in economics from North Carolina State University and became a U.S. citizen in 2010. Sawant has served on the Seattle City Council since 2014.

Lest anyone think this is hyperbole, here is the close of Sawant’s speech:

We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, violent, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism, this police state.

We cannot and will not stop until we overthrow it and replace it with a world based instead on solidarity, genuine democracy, and equality – a socialist world.

Before Sawant vowed to overthrow the United States, she threatened Amazon owner Jeff Bezos “and his class”, saying “we are coming for you and your rotten system.”

I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class.

If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to defeat you.

And we will not stop there.

Because you see, we are fighting for far more than this tax, we are preparing the ground for a different kind of society.

And if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it.

Because we are coming for you and your rotten system.

  1. Yay Kshama! I’m all for it. Let’s do this. I want this change in my lifetime! I want a more equitable system for us all. The system is wrong. I think Democratic socialism will be better for the vast majority of us. Too many poor people under the current system and too much selfishness.

    • You want equality, do what we hard working Americans do everyday… Get up early, put your work boots on, and go to work… I’m getting tired of paying taxes for a bunch of liberal nut jobs who want everything for free….

  2. Do you want should be deported immediately. I’m a lifelong democrat, but this gal is a radical crazy foreigner that we need to get out of our country!

  3. Kshama Sawant is a radical foreigner Who is endangering our way of life in the US. She should be deported back to India immediately! Let her read her have it in her own country!
