When CNN showed up to this city, they thought they were just doing a news report.
But it turned out a lot differently than they expected.
And now, CNN just accidentally proved how decades of Democrat rule destroyed San Francisco.
San Francisco has been absolutely ravaged by progressives who have taken control of power and refused to prosecute criminals.
In fact, even the left-wing residents of the city got so sick of their DA, Chesa Boudin, that they threw him out of office after he effectively legalized crime in the city.
But with radical progressives like Mayor London Breed still holding the reins of power in the city, getting rid of Boudin was simply too little too late.
The city is going downhill fast. It is a place no one should ever visit for any reason. It is dirty and unsafe.
The spike in crime got so bad that even CNN couldn’t ignore it. They sent reporters to the city to do a story about the increase in crime.
However, it turned out that the crime in the city is even worse than they expected. They got a nasty surprise when the reporters covering the story got robbed in broad daylight.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, “CNN reporters on assignment covering street crime in San Francisco, Calif., were robbed outside city hall on Friday, an incident that comes as the Democrat-run city struggles with a crime surge.”
Kyung Lah, a CNN senior national correspondent, had this to say on Twitter: “Got robbed. Again. @jasonkCNN & I were at city hall in San Francisco to do an interview for CNN. We had security to watch our rental car + crew car. Thieves did this in under 4 seconds. Security stopped the jerks from stealing other bags. But seriously – this is ridiculous.”
According to the article, “The theft happened while Lah and her crew were conducting interviews about voter discontent with the city’s rampant street crime, according to the CNN journalist.”
Of course, while it’s good that CNN and other liberal news outlets are finally waking up to this problem, what they will never say is that Democrats are to blame for it.
After all, there’s a reason this type of crime surge is happening in San Francisco, not in Ron DeSantis’s Florida.
And there’s a reason it lined up with the “woke” movement that has led Democrats to adopt pro-crime policies.
In the past, Democrats were certainly liberal on issues like welfare or abortion. But they at least had the sense to know that the residents of their cities want to feel safe. They would never have made crime legal.
But this Democrat Party is different. Influenced by “woke” young professionals coming out of the university system, they are adopting radical policies that are destroying the country.
If something isn’t done about it soon, the problem is going to spiral out of control. Crime needs to be stopped, and the education system needs to be overhauled to finally stop teaching this “woke” ideology to our future leaders like the ones in San Francisco.
