Seattle Pays $10,000 to a Communist Activist

The media claims she is homeless. She is actually a computer science graduate and Marxist advocate.
Homeless Encampement At Cal Anderson Park

The city of Seattle agreed to pay $10,000 to settle a lawsuit last week. Brought to federal court by a woman named Ada Yaeger, the suit is in regards to the city’s plan to remove her tent from Cal Anderson Park last December as part of clearing out a new ‘autonomous zone.’

Local news outlets continue to refer to Ada as “unhoused” and “homeless.” But she is actually a former college student from Texas with close ties to Marxist and communist groups.

In December, the Seattle Police Department (SPD) and Parks Department announced that they would be clearing the massive homeless encampment in Cal Anderson Park. The park was the site of the infamous Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) this summer.

After the announcement, activists moved into the park and started building barriers to protect their riot staging areas, not the dozens of tents in the park. They claimed to be protecting the homeless from SPD, but many of those homeless people who were in tents accepted offers of shelter and services from the city and the police. Some of the homeless people who had been living in the park even accused the activists of assaulting them.

Ada Yaeger’s attorney filed a lawsuit and argued that any clearing of the encampments violated her constitutional rights and could result in the damage or seizure of personal property by authorities.

The suit delayed the clearing of the park pending a judge’s ruling.

The Seattle Times wrote that “she ended up in Seattle, where her partner is originally from, after living in Texas. The coronavirus pandemic and bad luck left her and her partner with few places to turn, Yaeger said, and the community at Cal Anderson took them in. Since the park was cleared, Yaeger worked with city officials to relocate to a tiny home operated by city-contracted nonprofit Low Income Housing Institute.”

In July, Yaeger listed herself as a Dallas activist and a member of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO).

According to an FRSO statement, they are not “planning to defeat imperialism at the ballot box but by building up the people’s movements and constructing an organization capable of leading a revolution. The defeat of Trump in the election will improve the conditions for these tasks.”

Their website attacks both Democrats and Republicans. It also calls to overthrow capitalism and the United States, while praising Communist dictators, red China, and the Soviet Union.

Yaeger told the court that she had been living in a “protest encampment” in the park since the summer and been “…subjected to repeated harassment from the City of Seattle by way of ‘sweeps’—a coordinated destruction and taking of personal property of unhoused citizens by Seattle Parks and Recreation and Seattle Police, two departments controlled and funded by Defendant City of Seattle.”

According to Yaeger’s social media, she studied computer science at Jesuit College Preparatory in Dallas before coming to Seattle.

Local media portrayed Yaeger as a homeless camper with no other place to live. None of the Seattle news outlets bothered to look into her background or at her social media profiles where all this information was readily available.

Lawyers for the city of Seattle argued that the people living in the park had been violent towards park-goers, police, and park workers, citing safety concerns.

The city hired private security guards to enforce park hours, but the people living in the park threatened and chased them away. Over the summer, an Antifa weapons cache was found in one of the park buildings during a previous clearing of an encampment. Spike strips, explosives, machetes, and shields were found in the building.

US District Judge Richard Jones rejected the restraining order in December. He said that Yaeger had offered little to no evidence that her rights to free expression or due process were violated. The ruling allowed the encampment to be cleared.

The majority of the ‘black bloc’ Antifa members, who claimed to be occupying the park to ‘defend’ the homeless, left before the police arrived at Cal Anderson, leaving behind only a few dozen protesters. According to SPD sources, Antifa was more concerned about losing their staging area for riots and stockpiles of makeshift weapons they stored in the park. Activists screamed at the police during the cleanup and spent the following weekend attempting to regain a foothold in the park.

The CHAZ attracted activists from all over the Pacific Northwest in July, as well as from across the country. It also attracted the neighborhood’s homeless population and was the site of a gruesome murder suicide, allegedly committed by one of the campers. After CHAZ was dismantled, the homeless continued to return to the park as did Antifa activists who used the park as a staging area for ongoing riots in the city.

A spokesperson for the Seattle City Attorney told the Times that they settled the lawsuit “to avoid the time and expense of further litigation.”
