Globalist George Soros is getting his money’s worth.
Progressive district attorneys that he’s bankrolled across the country are spreading havoc.
Now a radical prosecutor is at war with one Democrat Mayor.
San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is one of many far-left prosecutors funded by George Soros.
Boudin is as radical as they come – both his biological parents and adoptive parents were Weather Underground terrorists, and he himself worked for Hugo Chavez.
Boudin and other progressive prosecutors are laser-focused on letting criminals go free regardless of the public health cost.
The result in San Francisco has been rampant crime, and so much human feces on the streets that an app was created to alert pedestrians where it was.
Even leftist Mayor London Breed is fed up with the crime.
Breed said during a fiery speech:
“It is time for the reign of criminals who are destroying our city – it is time for it to come to an end. And it comes to an end when we take the steps to be more aggressive with law enforcement, more aggressive with the changes in our policies, and less tolerant of all the bullsh*t that has destroyed our city.”
If that speech had been made by a Republican, MSNBC would’ve called it fascist.
In reality, it’s just common sense.
But Boudin doesn’t agree with his Mayor’s new tack.
“We can’t arrest and prosecute our way out of problems that are afflicting the Tenderloin. Arresting people who are addicted to drugs, jailing people who have mental health struggles, putting folks who are vending hot dogs or other food on the streets in cages will not solve these problems, and they are certainly not the only tools available . . . Right now in San Francisco it’s easier to get high than it is to get help. That has to change . . . I will do everything in my power to make the Tenderloin safe for all of San Francisco.”
This is all part of the progressive lie.
San Francisco is one of the richest and most left-wing cities in the country.
Roughly $300 million is spent on homelessness, but like any government bureaucracy, the more money spent, the worse the problem gets.
It’s not in agencies’ best interest to solve problems that would put them out of work.
Another problem is that, philosophically, leftists have decided that it’s okay for people to live on the street.
People with severe mental health issues are not voluntarily going to commit themselves for treatment.
So long as leftists let criminals, addicts, and people with mental health problems build encampments, the problem will never be solved.
And leftists seem okay with that arrangement.
