The Democrat Party has spent more than three years both figuratively and literally bending the knee to the Black Lives Matter movement.
The result has been a massive crime wave sweeping through the United States.
And now a top Capitol officer has released one document that has Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi feeling totally humiliated.
Democrats in both the U.S. House and Senate not only condoned, but applauded Black Lives Matter’s supposedly, “mostly peaceful protests” during the so-called “Summer of Love” following the death of career criminal George Floyd.
In the first week of the 2020 BLM riots, about 150 local and federal law enforcement officers were injured in the District of Columbia alone.
Already that’s more devastation and destruction than the January 6, 2021 protest at the Capital that the corporate controlled press would have you believe was worse than 911.
And those numbers are only from one week in one place.
It’s before factoring in the damage nationally over several months.
The fact is, according to numbers obtained by the Daily Signal, the 2020 riots ultimately caused about $2-Billion in property damage nationally.
And worse yet, some 19 deaths.
The outpouring from the 2020 ‘Summer of Love”
Billions of dollars’ worth of damage, murders, rape, robberies and assault – and how did leaders of the Left respond?
Never forget the nba season was going to be shut down until systemic changes were made to protect people from law enforcement. Then lebron said let's put some words on the back of our jersey instead. Company man shit…

As you can see in the above image, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi bent the knee to Black Lives Matter and promised to make concessions.
And they were far from the only ones.
Democrats from President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to local Mayors in blue city after blue city praised the riots, made excuses for them and vowed to fight for BLM’s policy demands.
And what did BLM demand?
Among other things, soft-on-crime, criminal-friendly policies, like defunding the police.
Caving to BLM has resulted in a massive crime wave sweeping the country.
In the nation’s capital alone, violent crime has been steadily climbing since 2019.
In 2023 alone, Axios is reporting violent crime is up 38% in Washington D.C. compared to the same time last year.
The surge in crime has risen to such a major problem for residents, even Democrat Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser has been forced to appear to take action.
Mayor Bowser is now rolling back some of her restrictive policing policies she implemented during the “defund the police” movement.
One of the biggest problems has been carjacking.
In fact, multiple Congressional staffers have been recent victims of terrifying carjackings.
Chuck Schumer won’t like this move from a top Senate official
And now, one of the top officers in the city is issuing new guidelines that would have been unthinkable just a few short years ago.
America is known for being a mostly friendly place with neighbors helping neighbors and strangers that will jump into action when they see someone in a jam.
But apparently, that lifestyle isn’t in the cards for the Utopia leftists are trying to create.
The fact is, Congressional staffers are now being advised not to stop and help people along the roadside.
Thieves have been using that roleplay as a set up to steal people’s cars.
The edict comes from the Senate Sergeant at Arms – and Karen Gibson wasn’t done there.
Sergeant at Arms Gibson sent a set of 15 tips to Congressional staffers to help them avoid being victimized by the criminal state caused by Left-wing policies.
Along pulling over and calling the cops instead of actually helping when they see someone with a broken down car, Gibson’s bulletin advises staffers should keep doors locked and windows up, avoid driving alone, stick to center lanes, use only attended garages, park in well-lit areas, and remain on the alert when exiting a vehicle.
