…allow me to introduce Chesa Boudin, who – with the enthusiastic endorsement of Bernie Sanders – ran for District Attorney there, and may well have won (it’s a virtual tie between him and Suzy Loftus, with “ranked-choice votes” to determine the winner).
Who is Chesa Boudin and why – how – could he make drug infested, homeless tent city-infested, feces on the streets-infested San Francisco even worse?
Read these excerpts from Michelle Malkin’s commentary and then you’ll understand:
He’s the Bay Area public defender and former shill/translator for the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez who plans to turn the craphole of San Francisco into an even bigger sanctuary for the homeless, drug abusers, illegal immigrants, gangsters, vandals, thieves, recidivist criminals and cop-haters than it is already. Boudin [Tweet him] leads a spooky field of left-lefter-leftists running for DA on the Nov. 5 ballot.
The cornerstone of Boudin’s campaign is sabotaging immigration enforcement. He has called for prosecution and imprisonment of ICE and police officers for doing their jobs and vowed to create an “immigrant defense unit” within the DA’s office to “stand up to Trump on immigration.”
What makes Boudin especially toxic is his family tree. Boudin is the militant offspring of spoiled-rich radicals Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, members of the violent Weather Underground terrorist group, which bombed government buildings and corporate headquarters, aided convicted felons in jailbreaks and participated in a 1981 Brink’s armored car holdup in Nyack, New York, with the Black Liberation Army.
Steeped in Marxist ideology and self-pity, Boudin moaned to The New York Times that he was “sad that my parents have to suffer what they have to suffer on a daily basis” because they were “dedicated to fighting U.S. imperialism around the world.”
Now Boudin wants to avenge his cop-killing parents by imposing “restorative justice” and “decarceration” policies that will incentivize violent crime and endanger lives in San Francisco and beyond. If you think California is on fire now, just wait until this red diaper baby takes control of the prosecutorial wheel.
Now, ask me if I have any pity at all for San Francisco, as it continues its degeneration from what once was a showcase, world-class city into a filthy, teeming sewer.
Nope. I do not. Not when, knowing what the city has become, the voters may have decided that, rather than addressing the downfall of San Francisco, they will accelerate it.
I am sorry for the minority of San Franciscans who know better and are forced to deal with this insanity. But that is where my sympathy ends.
Some of you might remember that old Toyota commercial which touted its selling points by singing “You asked for it, you got it, Toyota”.
Well, the voters of San Francisco asked for it. And they may well have gotten it in Chesa Boudin.
Political masochism is alive and well in the Bay Area.
