Pelosi House Break in draws attention to soft-on-crime Democrats

The issue of skyrocketing crime across the country under Democratic rule has come to the fore again after the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was burglarized on Friday by an individual who attacked the president’s husband with a hammer.

Crime, the second most serious problem in the country, has taken center stage as midterm elections come to an end on November 8.

The attack on the Pelosis by a 42-year-old Berkeley resident has been condemned by establishment media and Democrats alike.

In Wisconsin, Democratic Senate candidate Mandela Barnes is one of the most radical Democrats of the 2022 cycle. He has pushed for defunding the police, allowing felons to retain the right to vote, and believes that the population prison in Wisconsin should be cut in half. According to Wisconsin Right Now, Barnes allowed at least 884 convicted felons back on the streets by parole.

Barnes claimed that the police do not prevent crimes. “Police don’t stop crimes from happening,” Barnes falsely said declared on Real Talk with Henry Sanders. “We don’t live in a surveillance state and neither would you.”

Barnes also believes in abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and allowing driving license for illegal immigrants

In Pennsylvania, Senate candidate John Fetterman is soft on crime. Fetterman pushed to decriminalize heroin and create drug dens where individuals can legally get high. He supported ending cash bail. In 2018, Fetterman recommended to arrest criminals another day if they run away from the police.

He advocated for the abolition of life sentences without parole. Asked by Jason Flom about Righteous Convictions in 2021, what he would do with a magic wand, Fetterman replied that he would end prison sentences “for life without parole”.

In 2022, Fetterman called for a ban on the “possession” of guns, a step beyond simply banning the sale of guns, which he also supported by ending the filibuster. “I’ve always supported banning assault rifles,” Fetterman said April 11. “We should not have weapons of war in the hands of civilians.”

In New York, Governor Kathy Hochul has also implemented soft-crime policies. The Governor of New York recently created gun-free zones in the state. It has additionally enacted many other gun control initiatives, such as banning the sale of AR-15s to people under 21. Hochul also tried to enact gun-banning legislation that a federal judge recently struck down.

Republicans appeared to be campaigning for a national referendum on crime. The Republican National Committee (RNC), which is tasked with allowing Republican candidates to take over the House, Senate and many governorships, has lambasted Democrats for their lenient policies on crime.

I think what’s really reprehensible right now is that Democrats are watching crime go up,” Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the RNC, told Gray TV’s midterm election series on Sunday. “They still want to talk about something that has been universally condemned instead of talking about the issues that average Americans are facing right now and are suffering under the leadership of the Democrats.”

“They own everything,” she added. “They have the White House, the Senate and the House, and instead of solving the problems of Americans who are suffering, they continue to talk about a day when we all condemned violence at all levels, Republicans and Democrats.
