We must not lose sight of the horrors that are still taking place in our cities in the midst of the newest hand-waving about vaccinations and variations.
In the weeks after the November 21 tragedy, when a man purposely drove his SUV into the Waukesha Christmas Parade, Democrats’ silence and forgetfulness have captivated their party. Six people were killed and 62 were injured when a career criminal was freed on minimal bond as families and communities gathered to celebrate this important event.
In spite of their natural tendency to be upset, Democrats have paid little attention to either this deliberate assault or the many acts of violence that continue to plague our country. Instead, they’re stuck in a time loop that began on January 6, 2021, and won’t end until January 6, 2022.
In defending individuals they say they care about, their fury is selective.
Violent demonstrations started even before President Trump was inaugurated in, and they have continued to spread throughout the nation. A fire broke out at St. John’s Episcopal Church amid demonstrations near the White House, injuring 49 US Park Police personnel. While attempting to safeguard a neighborhood business from looters, former St. Louis police captain David Dorn was fatally shot. Fires, looting, the “CHAZ” autonomous zone, and the occupying of a police station roiled Seattle.
In Portland, where demonstrations have become a way of life, they are often accompanied by violence. This catastrophic upheaval is falsely described as “mostly calm.”
As a consequence, a slew of trespassing convictions and political posturing have occurred as Democrats in Congress remain myopically focused on January 6. When it comes to law and order, they’ve lost all credibility in tackling the genuine problems that face American communities throughout the country.
He had been arrested two weeks before to the Waukesha parade for allegedly driving over his girlfriend. On the basis of this and his 20-year history of violent and sexual acts, he was only charged with “second-degree reckless endangerment” and freed on $1,000 bond, an absurdly low sum.
Voters are being misled by Democrats who pretend to be oblivious to the bloodshed taking place in their communities. As a result of their own policies, they put public safety at risk. They disregard the effect of increased crime on families, minority-owned companies, property values, and upward mobility for people who are striving toward a better quality of life.
Unscrupulous regulations enable innocent people to die while criminals are shielded from the consequences of their own actions. In the wake of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-lauded Cortez’s push to defund the cops, many are keeping their vow to do so. Both Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both from Michigan.
What has been the outcome of this liberal philosophy thus far? Who better to ask than Lori Lightfoot, the Democratic mayor of Chicago, who suggested slashing $80 million from the city’s police budget? At already high levels of violent crime, certain communities have seen a 100% rise in the number of deadly shootings in the area. The situation has deteriorated to the point that the mayor has asked federal authorities to intervene.
The consequences of the Democrats’ reluctance to restore law and order are dire. According to the Atlanta Police Department, 157 people were killed around the city in 2020, up from 99 in 2019 and the greatest amount in at least two decades.
The situation is the same all around the country. The murder rate in the United States increased by 30 percent between 2019 and 2020, the greatest rise in modern history, and several cities are on course to break new records in 2021, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
To divert from Democrats’ policy and governance failings, Democrats will continue to deploy narratives of the unending epidemic and the events of January 6th.
Why will they be ousted in the midterm elections? Because they refuse to deal with the reality of crime, open immigration and inflation at a time when Americans are struggling for a return to normalcy.
Democrats have shown that they are not only out of touch with reality when it comes to protecting American families and communities, but they have actively sought to undermine public safety.
