Poor Nancy Pelosi.
Crime is raging in her home district of San Francisco, having moved nicely along from poop- and needle-dotted streets becoming routine to this newfangled “youth” pastime of mass, coordinated lootings.
In late November, as The Epoch Times recently noted, a group of around roughly 40 looters (probably just on the hunt for bread for their children, I’m sure) hit up a string of high-end retail locations across the Bay Area for three days straight (they assumed Nordstrom’s and Louis Vuitton outlets would have satisfactory plunder to feed their starving broods at home, I guess).
Yet old Nan, who I suppose has just spent so much time at her arduous job of wrangling a group of almost entirely ineffective members of Congress that she hasn’t had time to gander the dire sitch in her hometown, is drawing a blank when she begins to consider why, exactly, large-scale mass looting has become commonplace in the good ol’ City by the Bay.
Bless her heart.
“The fact is that there is an attitude of lawlessness in our country that springs from I don’t know where,” Pelosi said when pressed on the recent notable, overt crime waves that have hit her district so notably over the last few weeks during her weekly press conference.
Yeah, seriously? Just where, oh where, has this attitude come from?
It couldn’t possibly be that the radical leftist faction of her party that we all know is leading her by the nose has been condoning, some may even say glorifying looting in the name of “social justice,” could it?
It couldn’t possibly be that increasingly lenient D.A.’s virtue signal their downness with the cause by doing away with cash bail and declining to prosecute “low level” crimes like theft or city officials who combat drug addiction by installing “safe” injection sites?
No, I’m sure that’s not it.
Who knows where it’s coming from.
“We cannot have that lawlessness become the norm. … None of it is acceptable, and it has to be stopped,” she added for good measure.
This echoes recent painfully ironic comments from San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who also made the brilliant observation “It’s time the reign of criminals who are destroying our city, it is time for it to come to an end. And it comes to an end when we take the steps to be more aggressive with law enforcement.”
You mean the same law enforcement departments that she and her fellow progressives have been demonizing, slandering as unforgivably racist, and threatening with unemployment should they refuse to disclose their vaccine status?
You’ve just got ask yourself: do these Democrat politicians really not know what is driving these crime waves, or do they just think we’re dumb enough to not notice that they’re totally and completely feigning ignorance as their policies continue to destroy great American cities?
