Confronted With the Fact Their Policies Are Ruining US Cities and Killing Thousands, Dems Give The Usual Reply: ‘Shut Up, Racist!’
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.”

Tandler made no mention of skin color. Chatfield apparently inferred that, because the concerned citizen was talking about crime, she must have meant acts committed by non-white people. This proved, once again, that leftist, race-baiting whites are the most racist people on the planet. ‘The Birth of a Nation’ is a 1915 silent movie that the Washington Post called “the most reprehensibly racist film in Hollywood history.”
Crime is apparently a touchy subject in the San Francisco DA’s office, and in DA and mayoral offices in Democrat-run cities across the US. Lawlessness is rampant, and people can’t help but notice. Even CNN acknowledged on Wednesday that more than 850 people were shot, including at least 233 fatally, while Americans celebrated the Independence Day holiday weekend. In Chicago alone, some 100 people were reportedly shot, and 19 were killed. Thirteen children and two police officers were among the injured.
Homicides nationwide jumped 25% last year, according to preliminary government data. A Council on Criminal Justice report on 32 major US cities showed that murders rose 24% from 2020’s torrid pace in this year’s first quarter alone.
It’s easy to see why Democrat politicians don’t want to be confronted with news of this trend. The 13 largest US cities are run by Democrat mayors. Out of the 25 biggest cities, only two have Republican mayors. Playing the race card is a sign of the desperation among Democrats to deflect attention away from their failure to perform government’s most basic role: protecting citizens.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot bristled last Friday when a Newsmax reporter questioned whether she believed, as she had said previously, that crime was falling in the city. She insisted that violent crime was “trending down” and denied the reporter’s assertion that there were race riots in Chicago last summer. She also stood by her comment in an interview last week that “about 99%” of the criticism against her was motivated by the fact that she’s a black woman.

More than 2,000 people have been shot in Chicago this year, and the city is on target to have its deadliest year in more than a decade.
