Today in liberal hypocrisy…
Seattle radio host and self proclaimed “Cat Dad” Paul Gallant had taken to Twitter back in June to respond to President Trump’s handling of the protesters in Seattle. Responding to a Tweet where the President was critical of the Seattle mayor, Gallant responded “Chill dawg” before saying he saw “no burning, pillaging or deaths” in his city.
Today, Paul has taken to Twitter to sing another tune: “I feel like I need to buy a firearm”.
Why the change in attitude? Perhaps it was because rioters in his city trashed and looted the downstairs to his apartment complex. Gallant arrived back at his apartment this weekend to find it vandalized and looted.
Came home to my apartment complex. The Starbucks underneath has been destroyed, and cops are telling us to stay away in case something explosive is inside. pic.twitter.com/OOJgzUmusk

“I feel like I need to buy a firearm, because clearly this is going to keep happening. Enough is enough,” he wrote in a subsequent Tweet. “Really angry right now,” he continued.
“Great job assholes,” he wrote in a subsequent Tweet.
Naturally, Gallant, who once thought he had “dunked” on President Trump, spent most of the weekend being dunked on by the internet for his own hypocrisy.

Recall, this isn’t the first we’ve seen of hypocrisy in Seattle. The mayor dismantled the city’s anarchist CHAZ/CHOP district not after six shootings and two teenage deaths, as hedge fund manager and author James Altucher notes – but rather, after protesters threatened to take over Mayor Jenny Durkan’s 5,000 sqft., $7.6 million house.
And to Gallant, we only have one thing to say: chill dawg.
