George Soros has spent millions of dollars electing far-Left officials across the country.
But now, Soros’ socialist plans are being voted down by the American people.
And he just got dealt one massive electoral defeat in the last place he could have expected.
George Soros has devoted millions upon millions of dollars to get Leftists elected to every possible office in the country.
And many of these races haven’t been for Federal office.
Instead, Soros has spent most of his fortune working to get progressive democrats elected as District Attorneys, often in Left-wing strongholds like Seattle, Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.
But while the Left can ignore reality, they cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.
That’s why after the Summer riots of 2020 and the surging crime rate across most American cities, the general public in many blue parts of the United States are beginning to turn on Soros-funded DAs in droves.
And among those places where Soros is now playing defense is San Francisco.
The city that gave Joe Biden over 80% of the vote just took a sharp right turn in June after voting to expel its city District Attorney, who had been heavily backed by Soros.
Under the reign of Chesa Boudin, crime ran rampant as the District Attorney refused to enforce even basic laws related to property rights or theft.
Many shops in San Francisco simply closed their doors because of the sheer number of crimes being committed, while other criminals realized that there was nothing stopping them from looting and stealing as they pleased.
In fact, things got so bad in San Francisco that residents were leaving their car doors open when they parked because they knew if they did not, looters would smash the windows in order to steal whatever lay inside.
But even a city like San Francisco has its limits when it comes to radical Leftists.
The Federalist reports, “On Tuesday, San Francisco’s largely liberal residents successfully recalled their woke district attorney, Chesa Boudin. The majority of San Franciscans held Boudin accountable for the city’s skyrocketing crimes and the deterioration of the quality of life. The recall’s success has significant implications for San Francisco and the rest of the country.”
“Implemented radial policies in the name of criminal justice reform, including under-prosecuting or not prosecuting some criminals, not trying juveniles who committed violent crimes as adults and eliminating cash bailouts. They have prioritized the needs and welfare of the criminals over that of the victims and the wider society. Consequently, crime rates in these cities have spiked, and perpetrators with long criminal histories continue to roam around cities and terrorize residents and businesses freely,” adds the Federalist.
San Francisco’s soaring crime rate, murder rate, and drug use rate has led to a sharp drop in the quality of life for the city, and also has triggered a mass exodus to greener pastures.
San Francisco lost nearly 7% of its population in a single year between 2020 and 2021.
But for Soros, the move could signal a similar backlash against other far-Left DAs in cities like New York and Philadelphia, which are both also in the midst of a massive crime surge.
