Local Mayors like Sacramento’s Darrell Steinberg, Los Angeles’s Eric Garcetti, San Francisco’s London Breed and Oakland’s Libby Schaff, and Gov. Newsom, need to be held to account immediately for their inaction to the riots, and then for the destruction they surely helped cause.
Monday during his video press conference, Gov. Gavin Newsom admitted he has failed as an elected official. He largely said he is not a leader, is a part of the institutional racism, and that California under his leadership has filed.
What exactly did he say?
“Violent extremist organizations – they’re well defined, those same names, same groups……We continue to share that info in real time with local law enforcement. They also share what they hear with us.”
Former Congressman Doug Ose, Chairman of Rebuild California Foundation, issued the following statement:
“I listened carefully this morning to Governor Newsom’s remarks. This means that the identities of the persons fomenting the chaos in our cities and neighborhoods is known to law enforcement,” Ose said. “I urgently call upon Governor Newsom to release any names and any pictures of the individuals involved. The American public has a long history of assisting law enforcement in protecting our society from bad actors. Those who are peacefully protesting the killing of Mr. Floyd and other transgressions want the bad actors removed. Releasing the names and pictures of these bad actors is the right public policy, just as it is when murderers or gangs are running rampant through our communities. Release the names. Release the pictures. Let the public help.”
Spot on. Yet, Gov. Newsom said that is exactly what he wouldn’t do.
Most Sheriffs and police departments not only usually release the information of the bad guy they are attempting to locate, they encourage help from the citizenry by putting over the airwaves the description(s) of the criminals, and the whereabouts.
So why are Mayor Steinberg and Gov. Newsom withholding this information, when there are many videos and photos of these thugs destroying downtown property and local small businesses?
California and other blue-Democrat-run cities and states, are under siege. Looters are destroying shops, groceries, clothing stores, electronics stores, and everything privately owned. Corporate companies are attempting to re-open, but are met with political correctness standards.
Democrat Mayors are accusing everyone else of their misdeeds, wringing their hands and claiming that the “peaceful protestors” have a right to “protest.”
Indeed, they do have a right to go back to Tony’s Deli (a very good Sacramento deli, by the way), but if Tony’s is still closed down by huge insurance premium payments following the destruction of his deli and replacement of plate glass windows and products, what comes next?
Is this a victory for Antifa – to shut down a local deli, or bridal shop, or chain restaurant? Or is the goal total destruction? Then what?
Is the destruction of American society the goal? Is the way to do that to destroy the local Birkenstock store, or the organic grocer?
Local Mayors like Darrell Steinberg, Los Angeles’s Eric Garcetti, San Francisco’s London Breed and Oakland’s Libby Schaff, and Gov. Newsom, need to be held to account immediately for their inaction to the riots, and then for the destruction they surely helped cause.
California is under Antifa siege, but did not have to be, had there been any actual leadership; the state is awash in political special interest tools masquerading as Mayors and a Governor.
Ose has it right: “Releasing the names and pictures of these bad actors is the right public policy, just as it is when murderers or gangs are running rampant through our communities.”
