Joe Biden and the Democrats have proven to be disastrous in leadership.
And the American people are taking note.
Now Democrats are fracturing because of one growing problem that could cost them in 2022.
In 2020, Democrats refused to acknowledge a startling rise in crime.
They encouraged the rioting and looting that carried on for months because they were determined to use George Floyd’s death as political currency.
But the moment has passed, and people are sick of the stark uptick in violent crime.
The problem has gotten so bad, Democrats are beginning to call each other out.
Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez downplayed the crime and said:
“[A] lot of these allegations of organized retail theft are not actually panning out . . . I believe it’s a Walgreens in California that cited it, but the data didn’t back it up.”
This is absurdly false.
There are many videos of pharmacies and department stores getting robbed.
Over a dozen Walgreens have left San Francisco because of the theft policy that essentially allows for burglary up to $950.
Former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hinkind ripped Ocasio-Cortez, saying:
“AOC doesn’t care about victims. She cares about the criminals . . . All she’s interested in is defund the police, close the prisons down, defund the prisons . . . I think it’s time to defund AOC. She’s a danger. I really think she’s a danger. These crimes that are being committed, there are real victims out there.”
It wasn’t just Hinkind going after the radical Left.
Former Democrat Mayor of Philadelphia Michael Nutter said of George Soros-backed Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner:
“I’d like to ask Krasner: How many more Black and brown people, and others, would have to be gunned down in our streets daily to meet your definition of a ‘crisis’? How many more children and teens have to die in record numbers to capture your attention, and be considered a ‘crisis’?”
Philadelphia set a new record high in murders on Krasner’s watch.
Eric Adams, Mayor-elect of New York City, said:
“You’re seeing a Democratic Party, basically they’ve thrown up their hands . . . We’re continuing to see the same problems in our inner cities . . . This is going to be a city where we are going to be safe. We are going to have effective policing that is not heavy-handed . . . We’re going to have the backs of our police officers. We’re going to hold them accountable to do their job.”
Unrest due to crime has torpedoed much of the “defund the police” rhetoric that took place in 2020.
New York-based Democrat consultant Hank Sheinkopf put it best when he said:
“[Democrats] don’t understand that crime and disorder are unacceptable to the entire population . . . People will lie to pollsters and go into the voting booth and vote for the person they think is going to protect them.”
Democrats are bracing for a red wave in 2022, and it’s probably too late for them to turn around the oil tanker.
