It’s hard to evade blame when cities are falling apart and virtually all of them have been ruled by Democrats for decades. That doesn’t stop the Dems from trying. From Tony Cox at lewrockwell.com:
Don’t believe your lying eyes – the bullet holes, bloody shooting scenes and crying mothers. Don’t believe the stats or what the police say. The leaders of America’s big blue metropolises say there’s no crime surge on their patch.
And here’s one of the most predictable parts of the gaslighting: If you dare to say that violent crime is rising, and especially if you suggest that it’s scary and out of control, you’re a flaming racist. Of course. Might as well don the white hood.
That was the message on Sunday from Kate Chatfield, a senior director in San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin’s office. “Husbands are ‘scared for their wives’ – your reminder that the ‘crime-surge’ crowd shares the same ideology as ‘The Birth of a Nation,’” said Chatfield, who has since taken her Twitter account into hiding. She was responding to a message by San Francisco native Michelle Tandler, who had said her friends were all considering leaving the city because of crime, which has caused parents to fear for their children and husbands to be “scared for their wives.”
