An Antifa militant who publicized a hit list of Seattle business owners has been identified as a trans nonbinary furry and children’s camp counselor who has been arrested multiple times at violent protests.
Mikaele Andrew Baker, 23, of Seattle, tweeted an extensive list of local business owners last week who signed a petition in support of the dismantling of a growing autonomous zone in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The business owners were subsequently doxed and received threats.
Baker was born male but now identifies as trans nonbinary and uses “they/them” pronouns.
For months, far-left activists took over part of Cal Anderson Park. The site was previously part of the infamous “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” during the summer. The city dismantled that zone following several shootings and homicides, but far-left activists and vagrants returned to retake part of the park. The city recently posted notices that the encampment was illegal and would be removed. In response, Antifa and others called for reinforcements. They barricaded the park with wooden pallets and other junk.
“These are the businesses (and literally one, single resident) that signed a petition to sweep Cal Anderson Park. No further comment,” tweeted Baker under the pseudonym “@ComradeFlute” along with a screenshot of a list. In a follow-up post, a fellow Antifa activist posted all the addresses associated with the business owners.
In a letter to Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Dec. 14, a group of concerned businesses owners in the Capitol Hill neighborhood pleaded with her to end the second iteration of CHAZ.
“The fact of the matter is that there are now dozens of people occupying the park who are not unhoused, but rather are treating the park as a base of operations for their occupied protest,” .
“They [right wing groups] were pretty belligerent, but I wouldn’t say I wasn’t either,” Baker said.
In addition to Baker’s clandestine extremist Antifa activism, they are also involved in local politics.
Baker is the vice chair of the Washington Progressive Party. He has penned anti-law enforcement messages on behalf of the organization. (The organization has been reached for comment.)
“The police exist, and have always existed, for one purpose: to uphold the current social order by inflicting violence on American citizens,” Baker wrote in response to the death of George Floyd in May. “This is what the police did when they were slave-catchers, this is what the police did when they turned fire-hoses on Civil Rights protesters, this is what the police are doing now when they teargas us, beat us, and shoot us with rubber bullets.”
The City of Seattle sent in a large team of police officers to Cal Anderson Park on Friday to protect a clean-up crew at the dismantling of the autonomous zone encampment.
In an email, Baker acknowledged receiving The Post Millennial’s inquiry but declined to comment.
“I do not consent to be interviewed or quoted for your publication, and respectfully ask that you please refrain from using my name or quoting me,” they wrote. Baker has also locked down their Twitter account.
