So, is this bitch liable for incitement when her commie followers try it?

This started with
The Seattle City Council passed a unanimous resolution this week which declares May 1 a "day of action" on which city employees are encouraged to attend planned anti-Trump protests instead of going to work. 

The resolution—drafted by Councilmember Kshama Sawant, a member of the Socialist Alternative party—instructs supervisors of city government departments to remind their workers that they are entitled to take two days of unpaid leave for "days of faith and conscience," and that attending Monday's protests is a legitimate use of this leave.
and continues with
"If we truly want to build a summer of resistance against Trump and the billionaire class," Sawant said in a Tuesday interview on King5, an NBC affiliate, "then we will need disruptive action like shutting down airports, and shutting down highways."
I imagine a lot of businesses were just bloody thrilled to hear someone on the city council calling for this.

The mayor tried to play both sides, voting for this but saying  "We need to keep our freeways and our on and off ramps...the state, of course, needs to keep our on and off ramps open."  No condemnation of the call, just this.  And am I alone in thinking this is a slimy politician saying "I hope state authorities keep the roads open, so the city police don't have to" ?

It must be nice to be a public employee, so smugly confident in your job security that you can publicly advocate non-union protests specifically designed to undermine the free movement of the public which pays your salary.

It must be awful to be an elected official of the state which is hamstrung in efforts to serve the public, and not special-interest employees.

Can't wait to see how many public employees lose their jobs because their anti-Trump protests conflict with "To Serve And To Protect" public employees.
