The emerging crime wave is also on Tucker Carson’s radar.
There is no doubt that Black Lives Matter and the ongoing War on the Police by the media is the cause of the explosion in violent crime. Merrick Garland’s Department of Social Justice hasn’t succeeded in abolishing the police yet. They have succeeded, however, in defunding the police in lots of big cities and raising the potential costs of being a police officer far above the benefits. No one wants to be vilified by the media as the next Darren Wilson or Derek Chauvin and so cops show up and go through the motions now without really doing any policing that would leave them exposed in risky situations. The people who end up paying the price for this are mostly the black and brown law abiding citizens in big cities who are preyed on by all the criminals who have been emboldened in their neighborhoods.
The Jacobin ladies are spooked by this development. After all, it is the people who live in these big cities like Chicago or New York City who are getting shot and killed in record numbers. It is not the “white supremacists” or the “reactionaries” who are shooting them. We don’t live in these places. Those people who are getting victimized by emboldened criminals also have Joe Biden and Merrick Garland, Black Lives Matter, progressive activists and the media to thank for glorifying them.
