Los Angeles civil rights attorney Leo Terrell has claimed that violent left-wing groups like Antifa are the Democratic Party’s electoral base, assuming that’s why they are “soft” on prosecutions for related crimes.

Terrell told Fox News on Friday that Democrats had “returned” U.S. cities like Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles to such groups, assuming the situation would only get worse as long as Democrats remained in city and federal offices.


“We already know as we sit here today, Friday, that there’s going to be crime, murder and arson in Chicago and Los Angeles. And this whole idea that Joe Biden wants to defund the police . It’s a gimmick,” Terrell said.

He and “Hannity” host Tammy Bruce condemned the brazen shooting of a man at a gas station in the West Oak Lane section of Philadelphia, near the Cheltenham Township line.

The last time this city elected a Republican mayor was for Bernard Samuel, who left office in 1952.

“The Democrats have abandoned law and order,” Terrell said. “That’s why we need people like Gail in Congress, because Democrats don’t care about crime.”

During the interview, Terrell was joined by former TV reporter Gail Huff, a Republican candidate for US House in New Hampshire, who is also married to the ex-Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass.

“Antifa, Black Lives Matter, felons, career felons — that’s the Democratic base,” Terrell said.

“And they’re not putting their base in jail.”

Bruce echoed some of Terrell’s comments, noting that “what we’re seeing across the country is complete devolution of the Democratic Party, complete disregard for the country, and complete unwillingness to admit their failures as major American cities continue to crumble. out of control.”
