Here is the original article speculating about the posts, which seem to have been discredited, according to Lead Stories and others.
Opinion| Mark Sidney| By now I am willing to bet that you have heard of CHAZ. If not, CHAZ is the ‘Capital Hill Autonomous Zone’ in Seattle, Washington.
CHAZ consists of six square blocks or so, that have been divided up by radical domestic ‘terrorists’ as some call them, however, according to the Mayor of Seattle, the CHAZ is just a place for peace, love, free speech and expression:
Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society and provide true equity for communities of color is not terrorism – it is patriotism.

This contradicts the statements from her very own Chief of police (whose precinct in the CHAZ was occupied by ANTIFA and BLM style ‘protestors/insurgents.:
Seattle Police Chief: "Rapes, robberies and all sorts of violent acts have been occurring in the area and we're not able to get to [them]." #capitolhillautonomouszone #antifa #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/Oe5YfVz3uL

President Trump has threatened to use the federal government to reclaim the CHAZ. Those in the CHAZ seem to have think they have succeeded from the USofA.
Radical Left Governor @JayInslee and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stopped IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!

Well, it seems that some citizens may be thinking about taking matters into their own hands, and restoring order to the Capital Hill area of Seattle on their own:
The Gateway Pundit reported that:
A post on Facebook has announced that some American patriots are planning to take back the Antifa occupation zone on July 4th. The post reads:
On July 4th, Independence Day, a coalition of patriot groups and all who want to join are going to retake the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone for America. Antifa members are illegally occupying public property and terrorizing small businesses in the neighborhood. American patriots have agreed to come together again, remove the barricades illegally obstructing traffic, and free the people in the zone.
We are not going to hurt anybody, break the law, etc. We are simply going to tear down the illegal barriers on public property, clean up the mess these communist kids made, and return the police station over to Seattle Police Department control.
*The staging area will be Seward Park. The parking lot can handle roughly 10,000 bikes easily.
For what it is worth, this is not the only post on social media which suggested that a battle was coming to CHAZ:
Placerville, CA. 👇
ANTIFA announced that they will be coming to town, and dared anyone to stand in their way.
To do so there will be consequences i.e. violence.
In an unprecedented, never heard of in the history of the Hells Angels and Mongols.

Let’s hope order is restored and no one gets hurt, sooner rather than later. Also, keep in mind these are just posts on social media, so no one is sure if this is going to happen or not. The 4th of July is still weeks away, a lot can happened between now and then … Regard all this as speculation.
