A: nobody. Mayor Beetlejuice, Kim Foxx and Governor Tweedledum Pritzker have turned Chicago into a Hellish dystopia, and it is only going to get worse. When are corrupt, inept and possibly even criminal politicians going to be held responsible for their policies that are literally killing people?
The two most guilty are Mayor Beetlejuice – Lori Lightfoot and DA Kim Foxx. The city has become a warzone and young gang members commit crime with virtual impunity. If these incompetent Marxist stooges are not run out of office, the city is finished. Think Detroit in the 1980’s.
San Francisco was once a beautiful, safe, enjoyable city. Now it is dirty, dark and dangerous thanks to feckless Democrat “leaders”.
Democrats seem to do this a lot: add Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Minneapolis and New York to the list. When you decriminalize crime, release thousands of dangerous felons during Covid under the guise of “compassion” and reduce policing you get more crime. People respond to incentives, even criminals. Democrats are either too stupid to get this or it is a willful part of their plan to destroy the country. Either way it is evil.
And even has police ‘no-go’ zones according to one soon-to-be ex-resident.
This is not a product of “systemic racism” unless you are looking at the systemic racism created by the left. This is years of feckless, inept leadership and corruption by Democrats who are pretty much Marxists, as well as complete cowardice when it came to maintaining law and order. The horse has left the barn for Minneapolis and it will likely collapse until strong, ethical leadership cleans it up.
And take one guess who the perpetrators were? They were not white supremacists or even white. The left-wing narrative on anti-Asian violence is quickly turning into an embarrassment for them. I wonder if the NYT, CNN, NBC ect will cover any of this? Nah. The videos are sickening and any leftist, racialist or Democrat who equivocates on this has no humanity.
There is zero evidence that last week’s Atlanta shootings were tied to anti-Asian bias, but that did not stopped the despicable cretins in the Democrat Party and on the left from making such claims.
You want facts? Here they are.
A majority of crimes against whites are committed by whites. The same goes for blacks. The same goes for Hispanics. However, for Asians more crimes are committed against them by blacks than any other race. You won’t here that in our corrupt left-wing media. Here is an example that you will not see:
This is also related. The media is openly lying to you about who commits mass shootings. It’s always an angry white male, right? Turns out, nope:
Every race is represented, even an Asian or two but the perpetrators are overwhelmingly of one color, and it isn’t white. Dishonest, hateful leftists leaped at the chance to blame a white man for the Boulder shooting, until it became apparent that the shooter was a Syrian Muslim. Oops.
At this point I wonder if the evil, corrupt left isn’t openly trying to foment a race war in America. We are in a sorry state right now.
Getting the nickname ” Murderapolis again.
Bwahahahaha! Even though Dem cities lead overwhelmingly in violent crime on an absolute and per-capita basis. Yeah, crime doesn’t matter. That is why people flee crime-ridden cities, stupid.
I highly recommend watching this hour long special. It vividly illustrates what happens when radical leftists rule a big city. Seattle has devolved into a hellish pit of drugs, filth, crime and lawlessness, largely because the far-left Democrat government is no longer enforcing the law. Seattle now ranks number two in the country in property crime among US big cities, trailing only….wait for it……San Francisco.
This is a very important show.
Crossings are down, apprehensions are up, which the WaPo grudgingly admits to but sees as “bad”. And so far there isn’t even a wall. Put in simple economic terms, something that Leftists cannot comprehend: people respond to incentives.
If you tell an illegal they will be arrested and deported, they are far less likely to hand over their life savings to a coyote (smuggler) to get in the US.
Now, at the opposite end of the spectrum, murders are out of control in Baltimore after the police were basically ordered to stand down or be labeled “racist” by the majority black population. So what happened? Crime is way up. And who suffers? Law-abiding blacks. I wonder if BLM cares? Baltimore is reaping what it has sown.
