- CHOP … As in Madam Guillotine: We’re Watching the Reboot of the French Revolution

What do you call would-be revolutionaries chopping the heads of statues of Christopher Columbus and other historical figures? Practice.
I wrote that a couple weeks back as a bit of dark humor. Little did I know that in less than a week the anarchists and militants CNN loves calling “peaceful” would be threatening French Revolution-style beheadings. Even their new name screams “guillotine.”
In case you missed it, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle, or CHAZ, changed its name. It now goes by Capitol Hill Occupied Protest, or … wait for it … CHOP. The mayor talks “summer of love,” while these foaming radicals dream of the “reign of terror.” (Now, after a series of rapes and shootings in CHOP, Mayor Jenny Durkan is finally going to dismantle the occupied territory. She says.)
Swing, Swing, Swing Guillotine
Last week, leftists from CHAZ … uh, CHOP … migrated over to Seattle Police Department’s West District. According to the Seattle Times, a speaker said “It is not CHAZ, it is CHOP,” then gave the gathered hordes a history quiz.
“Has anybody here ever heard of the French Revolution before? That is another revolution (that happened) because people started putting property over lives! They started putting money over people! Does anyone here know what happened to the people who did not get on board with the French Revolution?”
“Chopped!” the crowd replied. Again. And again.
“That is the message we need to send! We are serious! This is not a joke!”
“Does anybody know what happened to the people who did not get on board with the French Revolution?”
“CHOPPED,” the crowd answered. pic.twitter.com/FfyUAvcUhM

This is what’s left of the Portland elk fountain after antifa militants set it on fire two days ago in the name of BLM. The flames severely damaged the base of the statue, causing the city to remove the elk over fears it could topple & injure someone.
