A Democrat Star Has Finally Been Ousted – They’re Throwing Him Out!
(UnitedVoice.com) – In 2020, America got hit with a double whammy. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government exerted its powers to shut down businesses and schools and put people in a general state of fear. In May 2020, Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin sparked a national outcry when he put his knee on the back of George Floyd’s neck. Across the country, Democratic major far-left cities began assessing the value of police. City leaders began defunding police departments. Still, crime enablers emerged as powerful left-wing district attorneys who began ignoring crimes and refusing to prosecute criminals, emboldening crime even further.
However, it appears even liberal Democrats have red lines as voters demonstrated they’d had enough in one liberal city. In another, crime is so bad a conservative mayoral candidate who never would have stood a chance at winning an election in the past has a great shot now. So, are Democrats revolting against those they once supported?
San Francisco District Attorney Recalled
On Tuesday, June 7, San Francisco voters decided they no longer wanted to be guinea pigs. They voted in massive numbers to end one of America’s most extreme experiments in social justice reform by ousting DA Chesa Boudin after serving only two and half years in office. During his tenure, Boudin eliminated cash bail, focused on holding police accountable instead of criminals, and refused to prosecute people or send them to prison.
In 2019, Boudin campaigned on a promise of decriminalizing homelessness and poverty. He promised not to prosecute homeless people who violated the law, prostitutes, or those who participated in public bathroom activities. In 2021, homicides in San Francisco soared by 36%. Motor vehicle thefts, arson, and robbery skyrocketed from 2019 to 2021. Some victims stopped reporting crimes believing nothing would happen to their assailants. The situation was so dire that San Francisco Mayor London Breed called for refunding police and cracking down on drug dealing.
On Tuesday, 60% of San Francisco voters said enough was enough and voted to recall Boudin. The lopsided vote demonstrated that even in one of America’s most liberal cities, the far-left is out of touch with many Democratic voters.
Could Los Angeles’ Next Mayor Lean Right?
In another shocking California development, far-left Los Angeles Democrats may face voter wrath over issues such as homelessness and crime. Billionaire Rick Caruso left the Republican Party and registered as a Democrat to run for LA mayor. His top issue is police and crime. Despite entering the race late, he immediately jumped the line ahead of traditional Democratic liberals to earn a place as one of two candidates in an upcoming runoff election.
Democratic pollster Carly Cooperman told Newsweek that the two elections in California were consistent with national trends. Voters feel the Democratic Party is leaving them behind as they continue to shift farther left despite voters wanting them to return to the center.
So, do the two California elections predict doom for Democrats ahead of the 2022 midterm elections this November and beyond?
