Antifa-supporting progressive competitor Nicole Thomas-Kennedy was taken to task after she pledged to stop most misdemeanor prosecutions, as well as for her previous statements attacking police, supporting riots, and promoting anarchy.

Former Washington state Democrat Governors Gary Locke and Christine Gregoire endorsed Republican Ann Davison for Seattle city attorney on Tuesday, while taking her Antifa-supporting progressive competitor Nicole Thomas-Kennedy to task after she pledged to stop most misdemeanor prosecutions, as well as for her previous statements attacking police, supporting riots, and promoting anarchy.

In a joint statement, Gregoire and Locke said Seattle needs "pragmatic city leaders who understand the challenges our city is facing and that will get Seattle back on track." The former governors added that Thomas-Kennedy's desire to abolish the police and jails while ending prosecution for most misdemeanor prosecutions of thefts and other offenses "would make the people of Seattle less safe and put our neighborhoods more at risk."

Though the race is non-partisan, local Democrats rushed to defend their radical candidate. Shasti Conrad, chair of the King County Democrats, lashed out at the endorsements on social media against the former Democrat governors and posted on Twitter: "You can’t call yourself a democrat and support a Republican for this job. You also can’t consider yourself an authority on much of anything when you’re supporting a candidate who literally said they don’t know how to do this job. Out of touch and playing old politics."

Thomas-Kennedy, according to her website, left the public defender's office to take on "pro bono activist defense work, part-time public defender contract cases, and volunteer with the National Lawyers Guild" during the riots in 2020 in the wake of the death of George Floyd led by Antifa and BLM, presumably to advocate for the rioters.

Thomas-Kennedy has spent the week deleting old tweets which showcase her radicalism. Her supporters have attacked people on social media for posting the candidate's old tweets by calling them fake. A deep dive of her Twitter history demonstrated that her top hashtags are anti-police and pro-riots.

During the ongoing riots in Seattle in August of 2020, Thomas-Kennedy referred to police as "armed thugs," supported black bloc Antifa activists and tweeted that "Property destruction is a moral imperative." She also praised activists for blocking ambulances in a now-deleted tweet.

During an interview, Thomas-Kennedy claimed the comment "was a joke," and went on to minimize property destruction in the wake of people being murdered in relation to that destruction of property. When pressed on the issue, Thomas-Kennedy belittled property destruction in comparison with murder even though Antifa and BLM activists had tried to burn down buildings in the city with people inside them. Perhaps the abolitionist did not care because the people inside were police officers.

Even though Thomas-Kenney claimed the tweet was a joke, she often repeats the sentiment. When Antifa and BLM rioters lit a construction site for the new Juvenile Detention Facility on fire, she tweeted: "Yay! Thank you to the heroes that set the Children's Jail on fire!"

Thomas-Kennedy's jokes become increasingly more threatening when she replied to another tweet in September 2020 and said, "I have a gun, so I'll be bringing that. But thanks for the threat. lol."

In another deleted tweet, the Antifa-supporting candidate posted that she was looking for land in between Portland and Seattle to stage riots.

The radical also called cops serial killers and called an attempted bomber of a police station "a hero."

Thomas-Kennedy in other deleted tweets called for the overthrow of capitalism and advocated for communism while discussing her hatred for America.

Thomas-Kennedy even joked about the brutal murder and dismemberment of a local single mother by her boyfriend in 2020.

On her website, the public defender said she will legalize most crimes because she claims the criminal justice system is racist and bigoted. As such, the abolitionist ignores the duty of the city attorney in providing justice for the victims of crime and instead will fund community-based organizations.

The model is not that dissimilar from current City Attorney Pete Holmes who has been widely criticized for Seattle's revolving-door justice system created by not prosecuting crime. Holmes failed to advance to the general election from the primary.
