Poor governance in blue states and cities is beginning to have undeniable negative effects.
Residents are fleeing blue states for a host of reasons in record numbers.
And the truth is, Democrat-run cities are now playing a deadly game with citizens’ lives.
District Attorneys backed by George Soros are cropping up all over the country, and the results have been deadly for local citizens.
These far-left progressive prosecutors believe that pro-crime policies will benefit society as a whole by reducing incarceration.
But in true leftist fashion, they believe they can remake society by simply shifting numbers around without actually addressing the root causes of issues.
Reducing the prison population by letting career criminals go with a slap on the wrist may lower the incarceration rate, but it does not reduce crime.
Americans are experiencing that as the crime rate jumped 30% in 2021, the steepest one-year hike ever recorded.
In Philadelphia, Soros-backed DA Larry Krasner has overseen the highest ever murder rate in the city.
In San Francisco, DA Chesa Boudin, whose birth parents and adoptive parents were Weather Underground terrorists, is facing a recall effort due to his inane soft-on-crime policies.
Crime has gotten so bad in San Francisco, even progressive mayor London Breed sounds like a law-and-order Republican.
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.”
The breaking point for San Francisco came when flash mobs robbed several high-end stores.
In Los Angeles, DA George Gascón won election after narrowly losing to Boudin in San Francisco.
In 2021, Los Angeles experienced over 130 follow-home robberies, and even liberals in Beverly Hills began buying firearms.
In St. Louis, DA Kim Gardner let Black Lives Matter protesters and rioters operate with impunity, but aggressively prosecuted Mark and Patricia McCloskey for defending their property.
Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, the latest Soros stooge, announced he will “ask judges for jail or prison time only for the most serious offenses – including murder, sexual assault and economic crimes involving vast sums of money – unless the law requires them to do otherwise.”
Soros-backed DAs are ushering in anarcho-tyranny – criminals get a walk, but law-abiding citizens get hammered.
In the Left’s ideal world, only ideological criminals belong in the gulags.
