It is a fair question to ask: why are so many of our large American cities failing, especially in the areas of crime and gun violence? Recently, we have shared with you stories of delusional deranged progressive socialist leftist obfuscation when it comes to the cities that they control, and have done so for decades. In Chicago, Mayor Lightfoot blamed Republicans for the weekly mass shootings that occur in the city she inherited from Rahm Emanuel. We took the time to explain to her that criminals do not follow laws and that Chicago’s problem is Chicago’s problem.
Then we had the dubious individuals who form the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, their city council. This past week they unanimously passed a resolution designating the National Rifle Association as a domestic terrorist organization. Hmm, this is the same San Francisco that is a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants where a young American woman, Kate Steinle, was gunned down by a five-time deported criminal illegal immigrant. Oh, yeah, he was found not guilty, and a California court of appeals dropped the unlawful possession of a firearm charge.
So, in San Francisco, a law-abiding, legal, American gun owner is a domestic terrorist . . . and a freaking criminal illegal immigrant, who shot and killed an unarmed American woman, walks free.
I want our dear confused progressive socialist friends to explain to me that absurd illogical reasoning? Furthermore, please, explain to us sane, rational, and intelligent people, how is it that you support this nonsense? I reiterate, today is “Stuck on Stupid Saturday,” and it comes at the end of a week with lots of stuck on stupid leftist nonsense.
Ask yourselves: who among you wants to see the United States of America resemble Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, Detroit, Tallahassee, FL (8th most dangerous city in America) . . . or even the state of California? I mean seriously, do we want our country overrun by criminal illegal immigrants and homeless people urinating and defecating in our streets? Do we want rampant crime, shootings, and killings . . . all while we are being driven towards disarmament as citizens?
Here is another bit of stupid emanating from the once lovely, conservative, Golden State of California. As reported by Fox News:
“California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, on Tuesday signed a bill that no longer requires any “able-bodied person 18 years of age or older” in the state to help an officer who requests assistance during an arrest. The Sacramento Bee reported that the old law, the California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872, was common in the country’s early days, but Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Los Angeles Democrat who sponsored the bill, called the old law a “vestige of a bygone era.” The law was employed to help catch runaway slaves, the report said. The old law made it a misdemeanor that carried a fine of up to $1,000 for refusing to help a police officer who requested assistance during an arrest. The report said Newsom did not issue a statement after signing the bill. The California State Sheriff’s Association said in a statement that it is “unconvinced that this statute should be repealed.”
Okay, let me restate the obvious: this is about the most absurd and illogical thing I have ever heard . . . until the next time a progressive socialist opens their mouth. California was never a slave state, and certainly was not a border state accepting “runaway slaves.” That is a doggone long way to run! To try to pin this statute on some slavery issue is absurd. No law enforcement officers in California would be seeking out to arrest “runaway slaves” in California. It was against the law.
What this endeavor is all about is the leftist goal of undermining our law enforcement officers. Shall I remind you that it was in California where an armed criminal illegal immigrant gunned down a law enforcement officer, Officer Ronil Singh? Sadly, we didn’t hear a peep from the former mayor of San Francisco, the consummate leftist ignoramus, Gavin Newsom. Who are these people who care more about criminal illegal immigrants than Americans, law enforcement officers?
But, should we really be shocked by Newsom’s actions? I think not, this is who the left is. After all, the George Soros funded group Black Lives Matter would chant in the streets, “what do we want, dead cops, when do we want it, now?” For some odd reason, to the deranged leftist mind, that is perfectly fine . . . but the NRA is a domestic terrorist organization? Please ‘splain that one to me, to us.
Consider what has been recently happening in New York, where the NYPD officers have been doused with water and verbally assailed. And what has the avowed socialist mayor of NYC done? As a matter of fact, every single crime statistic has risen under ol’ Billy de Blasio: rapes, assaults, and shootings. Kinda reminds me of the days of that abject leftist failure of a Mayor David Dinkins. But, it is not just in NYC where our law enforcement officers are being accosted. Just look at what is happening in Philadelphia where the police officers are being shot at and receiving verbal abuse.
Gavin Newsom has made it legal and acceptable — in California — to disrespect and endanger our law enforcement officers. We already know that due to the sanctuary state status, we have leftist police chiefs who wear a uniform yet place political ideology over their duty to protect and serve the people. Heck, you have the Oakland California mayor aiding and abetting criminal illegal immigrants, with no consequence whatsoever. Here in Dallas, we have a problem with city council and county commission corruption at the expense of our law enforcement officers, and, let us never forget the five LEOs who lost their lives while protecting a Black Lives Matter protest march a few summers ago.
This is the progressive socialist left in America. They do not believe in our national sovereignty and welcome masses of illegal immigrants, including criminals and gang members. They seek to do everything possible to undermine our rule of law, and fail to support our law enforcement agencies. And, they want to disarm law-abiding Americans, all for their insidious tyrannical goal of ruling over us, not governing.
These people are openly admitting who they are and what they seek to accomplish. Sadly, they are having some success . . . so far. In the end, just like in Venezuela, they will arm their thugs, like Antifa, to coerce, threaten, intimidate, and enact violence against people due to their political views.
We now live in an America where the left, as they always have, is creating lists of people, heck, even a Texas member of Congress has done so — without consequences — with the purpose to destroy them, and their businesses. And they are no longer hiding in secret, as we shared with you about Debra Messing.
How long will it be before our law enforcement officers are targeted and attacked by leftist enabled thugs, gangs? Oh, I am sorry, that is already happening. Now, thanks to diabolical, devious, and dangerous leftist elected officials like Newsom, it will be legal to watch and not come to the aid of our law enforcement officers. what type of sick person supports this?
This is all coming to a head and I believe that America will abjectly reject this tyranny, this maniacal obsession. For too long we have accommodated, appeased, and attempted to compromise with the progressive socialist left here in America. They, just like their allies, the Islamo-fasicsts, have no desire for civility and coexistence. As Hillary Clinton said, only when they are in charge there will be civility. That is not what I call civility. I call that subjugation.
Soon we will have another Democrat (socialist) Party presidential debate, and guess where it is being held? Yes, it will be in Houston, Texas, the same city where, in November of 2018, every single Republican elected official was defeated. This cancer is spreading, and that is why as the Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, I will be doing surgery.
Lastly, I back the blue, the men and women of the Thin Blue Line. I condemn Gavin Newsom and his ilk for disrespecting our Law Enforcement Officers, and if anything happens, he has blood on his hands, and we shall not forget!
