Guess the common denominator: US cities set record-breaking crime/gun violence/homicides in 2020

Many in the media are blaming the increase of gun violence/homicides in U.S. cities on the Wuhan virus.

Just how bad was 2020 for violence in some American cities? Take a look at these headlines:

Seattle police report record-setting homicides in 2020
Chicago ends 2020 with 769 homicides as gun violence surges
St. Louis’ 2020 homicide rate is highest in 50 years
Shootings in Portland more than double in 2020
NYC ends 2020 with 41% spike in homicides
Minneapolis homicides and shootings up 64% compared to last four years
Milwaukee ends 2020 with record 189 homicides
San Francisco homicides are up amid the coronavirus pandemic
LA’s 2020 Murder Rate 25% Above Last Year
Louisville shatters record for homicides, nonfatal shootings in 2020

Gee, I wonder what all these cities have in common?

So is the Wuhan virus really to blame for this increase in voilence?

I’d argue that the soft-on-crime, “criminal justice reform” DAs contributed. I’d argue that the demorat mayors who allowed rioting and looting contributed. I’d argue that the demorats who support #defundthepolice contributed. I’d argue that demorat mayors who allowed Antifa free-reign (Seattle and Portland) contributed.

Most importantly, I’d argue that the criminals pulling the triggers were most responsible.

Yet we know that the media much prefers to stick to their narratives rather than the facts.

Jan. 6, 2021: Revolution. Who’s actually behind it? Capitol Hill has been over run. So has the Senate Chamber… Shots have been fired, tear gas and masks deployed. On Fox and CSpan now…

I love the scene of protesters “streaming in”… yet walking in calm lines within the roped off sections. 😉
I can’t even imagine antifat or blm working so diligently.

I’m just still not sure it’s actual Trump supporters, or those on the other side trying to instigate things. Isn’t that what the Left claims actually went on when violence actually did break out within their own “protests” and “peaceful demonstrations”?

Brad Parscale just tweeted it’s NOT MAGA…

On OANN,I heard a Congressman say the “Protesters” that crashed the gate acted like ANTIFA,not Trump supporters,dressed sloppy,etc. . There we have the answer.

That’s what I’d say about the ones who broke out and entered windows. Maybe not antifa, I don’t know. But anarchists – instigators.

Still, if a revolution is what’s called for to save America, “it’s just property”, right? As they say.

Antifa was infiltrating by various means like carrying small flags. It was suggested they would….

The Cretin, Maxine Watters, fired first shots in today’s debacle on inauguration day 2017 when she bellowed “impeach 44” before the day was over, furthermore & thereafter instructed her goons to “resist, & follow Trump supporters into gas stations, restaurants, their homes etc., anywhere they saw them & harass them– get all up in their faces…& then, of course, Nancy Pelosi fed a steady supply of ammunition, for starters–the shameful and baseless “impeachment,” supported by her toadies (one day I hope to rip up the State of the Union speech, on camera, of her stuttering, shuffling old POTUS, Joe Biden,… Read more »

I think it’s high time we give them back a good dose of their own medicine. Say, four years’ worth. Make their lives hell… Unfortunately, we don’t control high tech, education, and the media the way they do.

Even my local county board of commissioners in a red county in a red state has gone blm… I have NO IDEA who voted them in, but I have an idea it wasn’t old white guys like me. Property tax rates immediately jumped more than in the past two decades combined.

Sadly and distressingly, none of this will change the minds and voting of Democrat residents in those cities.

BTW… I’d argue that the soft-on-crime, “criminal justice reform” DAs contributed. I’d argue that the demorat mayors who allowed rioting and looting contributed. I’d argue that the demorats who support #defundthepolice contributed. I’d argue that demorat mayors who allowed Antifa free-reign (Seattle and Portland) contributed. I’d argue that anyone who says otherwise is either lying, delusional, or has been living in a cave. And where was the outrage from the Dems, RINOs, and Media while all the lawlessness was (and still is) occurring? Not the day-to-day crime, but the rioting, arson, attacks, destruction of private & public (& federal) property,… Read more »
