“Today’s explosion in violent crime parallels the return of 1970s-style inflation and gasoline lines. Wide ties and polyester slacks can’t be far behind.

Liberal [sic] Democrats concocted at least three rotten policies that have propelled the mayhem now tormenting Democrat-run cities plagued by the left’s peanut-allergy-like aversion to law and order. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the poster girl of the neo-Marxian left, promised this about America, after police defunding: ‘It would look like a suburb.’ How is that working out? In New York City, AOC and Black Lives Matter got what they wanted: Mayor Bill de Bolshevik and the City Council last year defunded the New York Police Department’s budget by $1 billion or 9.2 percent.” (06/10/21)
