People feign outrage whenever anyone suggests that the left is actively trying to destroy America, but even if you grant that they aren’t, if they WERE, what could they possibly be doing that’s any different from what they’re doing already?
Here are a couple of inexplicable cases in point: New Yorkers have watched in anger and astonishment over the past few months as a new state law (written by the Democrats they elected to absolute power) allows criminals to be released without bail to commit the same crimes over and over. To no thinking person’s surprise, this has vastly emboldened criminals and sparked a big jump in crime.
In New York City, major crimes were up 22.5% in February from one year ago, and shootings were up 7.1%. Since the strict gun laws have only gotten tighter since then, while only restrictions on criminals were loosened, someone with rudimentary deductive skills might think that proves controlling criminals is a more effective way to reduce shootings than passing more gun laws.
New York City has seen increases in robberies, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny, grand larceny of a vehicle and hate crimes. Of course, attacks on police officers are up. Even “squeegee guys” are back! Rape is down slightly from 2018, but that could just be due to failing to report it to police.
Retired NYPD Bronx detective Malcolm Reiman was there in the hellish pre-Giuliani days under liberal Mayor David Dinkins. He told Fox News, “Crime was out of control. People forget how bad it was…Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
Reiman said, "You would walk down the subway steps every day, and all you could smell was urine; it was littered with muggers and mentally-ill people everywhere. Subways were truly terrifying places. Those protesting today don't know what it was like for everyone back then."
Well, they’re getting a taste (or smell) of it now, and without even having to fly to San Francisco or L.A. But what did they expect when they elected (and reelected!) Dinkins’ far-left protégé, Mayor Bill DeBlasio, who seems more concerned with protecting criminal illegal aliens than his own cops and constituents?
Maybe the power of video will shake some sense into New York voters’ heads if they see this latest horrific outrage on TV or social media. A 15-year-old girl in Brooklyn was surrounded on the street by five male teens (reportedly “friends” of hers with whom she’d had an earlier altercation.) They savagely beat her and left her lying on the sidewalk with head trauma and other injuries before stealing the Air Jordan shoes off her feet and running away. Luckily, the entire sickening assault was caught on video, and the alleged attackers turned themselves in to police. Although, under the current regime, who knows if anything will happen to them, or if they’ll be out beating up another girl by this time tomorrow?
This is what happens when young people have no respect for the law or the police. And why should that be a surprise when the political leaders in charge of enforcing the laws obviously have no respect for the law or the police either?
