Crime On The Rise In Democrat Cities: Mayor Blames Business Owners


This week Governor DeSantis took a stance against crime in Florida and vowed to do exactly the opposite of what Democrat-run cities and states are doing.

And for good reason.

Crim has been on a rise hitting all-time highs in cities like New York and Chicago.

Liberal policies have really done a number on the crime rate in these cities.

Defund the police, no bail, and bad gun policies are how liberal mayors and governors are helping criminals every day, putting the lives of ordinary citizens and police at risk.

But do they take responsibility?


Here’s Fox News with the scoop:

Democratic mayors are raising eyebrows with their responses to the rising crime plaguing major cities like New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia.

The U.S. murder rate rose 30% between 2019 and 2020, according to FBI data – the largest annual increase on record, with Chicago topping the list. At least 12 major cities, including New York, have already set historical murder records in 2021. Robberies and assaults are also on the rise, and retailers in major cities across the country are reporting an uptick in organized smash-and-grab crimes during the busy holiday shopping season.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot faced criticism last week after she responded to the recent flood of robberies in her city by blaming retailers for not better protecting their merchandise.

“We also got to push retailers,” she said during a Dec. 6 event. “I’m disappointed that they are not doing more to take safety and make it a priority. For example, we still have retailers that won’t institute plans like having security officers in their stores, making sure that they’ve got cameras that are actually operational, locking up their merchandise at night. Chaining high-end bags, these purses seem to be something that is attracting a lot of attention on these organized retail theft units.”

Lightfoot’s comments were blasted by retailers as misinformed.

Ok, wait hold on for a second.


Is she actually serious?

Hey idiot, how about you don’t run your city into the ground instead of blaming business owners and retailers.

Like actually?

How do you expect small businesses to hire security guards?

I thought that’s why we paid taxes to have the city step up police spending not defund the police and spend money on liberal-backed agendas like critical race theory and gender studies.

These people are corrupt and they blame the people that work hard to pay taxes and feed into their corruption.

The system has been broken in liberal cities since the 70s and now it is spewing out.

Here’s Fox with more:

In Philadelphia, where police have reported a 13% increase in homicides compared to 2020, District Attorney Larry Krasner sparked a backlash this week after he claimed the city does not have a crime problem.

“We don’t have a crisis of lawlessness, we don’t have a crisis of crime, we don’t have a crisis of violence,” the district attorney told reporters Monday. “It’s important that we don’t let this become mushy and bleed into the notion that there is some kind of big spike in crime. There isn’t. There is not a big spike in crime. … There is not a big spike in violent crime. Neither one of these things is true.”

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon also recently came under fire amid a surge in violent smash-and-grab robberies in his city. Critics blamed Gascon’s zero-bail policies for releasing 14 suspects who were allegedly involved in 11 smash-and-grab robberies last month hours after their arrest.

Gascon defended himself during a press conference last week, blasting what he described as “fearmongering and misinformation” regarding crime in L.A. County, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and more!

When are voters going to face the hard facts and realize that liberal-run cities and states are just bad for business, bad for employment, bad for homelessness, and bad for crime!

The funniest part is that these people living in these places realize how crappy their life is so they move to Texas, or Nevada, or Colorado.

And do they vote red?


They push the same leftist agendas, vote in the same sort of people, and pass the same laws.

Watch what happens.

Soon enough Texas is going to have crime be as high as in New York.

All because liberals can’t face the facts!

You know why it’s so good in Texas?

Because they vote red!

Here’s Twitter with how they feel about crime in liberal cities:

NATIONAL POLL: Do You Still Have Trump's Back 100%?

That last Tweet is a whole story on its own.

I wish President Trump were still in office…

Correction, I wish the 2020 elections weren’t falsified at 4 in the morning.

Hopefully, America will wake up to the issues that really impact the day-to-day wellbeing of ordinary people.

Crime, employment, inflation, this is what we care about.

Critical race, gender fluidity, covid mandates, not so much.
