The Chaos In Our Streets Is The Inevitable Result Of Decades Of Failed Liberal Policies
What did we think was going to happen? We allowed liberals to run most of our major cities for decades, and now those cities have degenerated into drug-ridden, crime-infested hellholes.
Forty years ago, my elderly grandmother lived in one of those major cities, and she would take us on very long walks through the heart of her city without any concern for our safety whatsoever. And that was because the city was safe. But now everything has changed. The worst areas of our largest cities now look like something out of a post-apocalyptic horror movie on a permanent basis, and the rest of the world is laughing at us.
Needless to say, we didn’t get here by accident.
What we are currently experiencing is the inevitable result of decades of liberal policies. And when I use the term “liberal”, I am not just talking about Democrats. I personally know some Republican politicians that pretend to be “conservative” to get votes, but in reality there is very little that sets them apart from the other party.
Over time, we have allowed our politicians and our courts to push traditional American values almost completely out of public life, and that includes our system of public education.
But that doesn’t mean that our kids aren’t being taught any values at all. New “values” that are diametrically opposed to the old values are being relentlessly pushed on our children, and as a result the way that they view the world is being deeply warped.
Meanwhile, the quality of the education that our children are receiving has gone into the dumpster. At this point, a very high percentage of U.S. kids cannot even read “at a basic level of comprehension”…
About one in three children in the United States cannot read at a basic level of comprehension, according to a key national exam. The outcomes are particularly troubling for Black and Native American children, nearly half of whom score “below basic” by eighth grade. “The kids can’t read — nobody wants to just say that,” said Kareem Weaver, an activist with the N.A.A.C.P. in Oakland, Calif., who has framed literacy as a civil rights issue and stars in a new documentary, “The Right to Read.”
Our system is producing vast numbers of young people that lack the skills necessary to function in society at even a very basic level, and they have also been endlessly indoctrinated to see the world from an extremely liberal point of view.
Of course the consequences have been absolutely horrific.
For example, just consider what has happened to the city of Philadelphia. If Benjamin Franklin could see what has happened to his once great city, I am sure that it would make him want to vomit.
In the worst areas of Philadelphia, you literally need to watch every step that you take so that you won’t step on discarded drug needles, human feces or human blood…
In this sort of an environment, anything that is not nailed down is likely to get stolen.
In fact, someone just stole approximately two million dimes from a Walmart parking lot in northeast Philadelphia…
Police are investigating after someone broke into a trailer containing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of dimes in Northeast Philadelphia. The discovery was made around 6 a.m. Thursday in a Walmart parking lot on the 4300 block of Byberry Road. Police on the scene say an estimated two million dimes, worth $200,000, were stolen. That’s an increase from an earlier estimate of one million dimes.
Philadelphia didn’t have to turn out this way.
But it has been run by liberals for ages.
The same thing has happened to Chicago.
Once upon a time, it was such a beautiful city, but they just kept electing one liberal after another.
In the most recent election, the citizens of Chicago kicked out Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
That was a good thing.
But then they replaced her with someone even more liberal.
Brandon Johnson is a “defund the police” advocate who wants to have “health professionals” respond to 911 calls…
Johnson was the only candidate who did not support “hiring more police officers” or “filling the about 1,600 vacancies” in the Chicago Police Department, Block Club Chicago reported. Rather, he backs efforts to “dismantle systemic racism,” erase a database of gang members, and “have health professionals, not police, respond to crisis calls.”
When Lori Lightfoot took office, she had similar ideas, but obviously they didn’t work because the murder rate in Chicago went up about 40 percent during her tenure…
The incoming mayor’s crime platform is startlingly close to the current mayor’s. Lightfoot also took office as a progressive criminal justice reformer, saying in 2019 that the city must “go to neighborhoods and provide supports to community, not just with law enforcement.” In her failed reelection campaign this year, she emphasized providing “resources and services to address the root causes of violence” and employing mental health providers “to respond to 911 calls.” The city’s homicide rate has jumped nearly 40 percent since Lightfoot took office in 2019, the watchdog group Wirepoints reported.
At this stage, the city of Chicago is a complete and total nightmare.
I don’t know how else to say it.
On Saturday night, hundreds of teens violently rampaged their way through the city…
Hundreds of teenagers flooded into Downtown Chicago on Saturday night, smashing car windows, trying to get into Millennium Park, and prompting a major police response. At least one person in a car was attacked. Shots were fired near the corner of Madison and Michigan, and FOX 32 Chicago decided that it was unsafe to keep our news crew on the scene.
We have reaped what we have sown.
These kids are acting a certain way because they have been trained to view the world a certain way.
If they had been raised with different values, they could have turned out much differently.
Theft is another colossal problem in our major cities.
Do you remember the looting that we witnessed during the BLM riots a few years ago?
Well, at this point looting has become a way of life in some of our largest cities, and it is costing retailers billions upon billions of dollars every year.
And “progressive” district attorneys empower the looters by putting them back into the streets time after time…
Progressive district attorneys in cities like Chicago, New York, Portland and California have also been blamed for effectively legalizing shoplifing with either not prosecuting thefts under $950, or letting criminals off with a slap on the wrist.
In New York City, 327 serial thieves have been “arrested and rearrested more than 6,000 times”…
Nearly a third of all shoplifting arrests in New York City last year involved just 327 people, the police said. Collectively, they were arrested and rearrested more than 6,000 times, Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said. Some engage in shoplifting as a trade, while others are driven by addiction or mental illness; the police did not identify the 327 people in the analysis.
If law enforcement authorities would just get those 327 people off the streets for good, that would go a long way toward turning things around.
But they just won’t do it.
And so thieves will just go on looting.
And violent criminals will just go on hurting people.
On Saturday night, there was a mass shooting in Alabama that resulted in over 20 people getting shot…
A high school football standout was among four killed in a mass shooting in small-town Alabama where more than 20 people were shot at a Sweet 16 celebration for the victim’s sister. Phil Dowdell, a senior set to graduate in a matter of weeks, had been celebrating his sister Alexis’ birthday Saturday night at Mahogany Masterpiece dance studio in Dadeville when the first shots rang out following what police suspect was a fight.
My guess is that this mass shooting was probably committed by someone that has been arrested multiple times already.
As more information comes out, we’ll see if my hunch is correct or not.
Over and over again, horrible crimes are being committed by people that should have been put behind bars a long time ago.
But being tough on crime is simply not a priority for most of the people that are running our society.
However, if you are an Amish farmer that believe in traditional farming methods, you are likely to have armed federal agents show up at your door…
Armed federal agents were used to threaten a traditional Amish farmer just 150 miles outside Washington, D.C., who does not use pesticides, fertilizer, or gas to run his farm.
So what was his great crime?
Well, it turns out that he was organizing “food clubs” where people could buy food that was grown in a traditional manner…
Miller has helped organize private food clubs where individuals can purchase produce, dairy, and meat from traditional farmers; the Department of Justice (DOJ) seems intent on stamping them out.
The feds don’t seem to care about the horrific crimes that are being openly committed in our major cities.
But if you threaten the profits of the big food corporations, they are going to crack down really hard.
We live in a society that has been turned completely upside down.
If we choose to stay on the path that we are currently on, things will not end well for us.
Sadly, liberal politicians in both parties just keep winning elections over and over again.
We have gotten to such a low point as a society because we deserve to be here, and hopefully we can get this country to wake up while there is still time to do so.
