Call 911 on Criminal of Color, Get Fined

Under California-style anarchotyranny, you had better think twice before calling 911 to report a criminal. If the evildoer is a hated Caucasian, all is well and good. But if the scofflaw is a sacred BIPOC and you are not, the authorities may regard you as the transgressor; you could face a heavy fine.

I only wish this were from the Babylon Bee rather than Hot Air:

Out in Santa Cruz County, California, the Board of Supervisors has passed a new municipal ordinance involving 911 calls. They want residents to know that they are free to call the emergency services line if they see something suspicious, but if it involves a person of color, the caller may wind up getting hit with a fine of up to $1,000.

It is also unwise to report criminals who seem the type to engage in establishment-endorsed aberrant sexual activities. Via CBS SF BayArea:

The new law creates civil penalties — up to a thousand dollars — against anyone who reports someone to law enforcement because of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or other legally protected classes.

This lunacy is consistent with critical theory, the religion of our ruling class. According to moonbat doctrine, only heterosexual white men should be viewed as the bad guys. Everyone else is oppressed by them, and incapable of doing wrong so long as they do not betray identity politics by expressing conservative opinions. This was the ideological justification for Democrats supporting the sociopathic War on Police in the name of Black Lives Matter.

Replacing justice with social justice should save on court costs, freeing up more tax money for welfare payments. No one needs to establish who did what to whom. Only respective positions in the cultural Marxist victim hierarchy need be determined.

Handcuffed and Caged for Walking Dog in NYC

Under moonbat rule, crime is essentially legal. Shoplifters fill garbage bags with merchandise and walk out of the store unmolested. Walking your dog, on the other hand…

From New York City:

An Upper West Side woman was handcuffed, tossed into a police holding cell and treated like a criminal all over a minor infraction — walking her two dogs without a leash in Riverside Park…

Since the dogs were engaged in impermissible activity, they qualified for the same treatment:

Though unleashed, Comet and Sophie also stood obediently nearby, circling around their owner as one of the officers tried in vain to herd them into wire cages. […T]he officer who initiated the arrest gleefully explained how he’d use an electric stick to shock them into compliance.

Fortunately, her boyfriend arrived to rescue Comet and Sophie.

Once at the precinct, Marchand said she was treated like a “real” criminal — officers stripped her of her shoes and made her remove the strings from her pants as she sat in a holding cell…

On the contrary, if she were treated like a real criminal in New York, she would be awarded $millions in damages to compensate her for psychological trauma, and AOC would deliver tearful speeches on her behalf.

If only she had thought to throw a brick at the park cops and scream, “Black Lives Matter!” Then authorities would have left her alone.

The term for the liberal system of government is “anarchotyranny.”

Buffalo’s Next Mayor Calls for Social Worker Cannon Fodder

Letting Black Lives Matter maniacs run wild and dictate policy inevitably resulted not only in $billions in property damage but in an ongoing explosion of violent crime. Yet cities that have succumbed to the Democrat Death Spiral, rather than pull back in horror from the abyss, plunge ever deeper into moonbattery. Avowed socialist and Black Lives Matter supporter India B. Walton won the Democrat primary, so she will be the next Mayor of Buffalo. Here’s what that means for public safety:

Walton has said that she wants to cut the funding to the police force and send social workers to respond to some emergency calls instead.

On Wednesday, Walton reiterated that policy when responding to an incident where a 3-year-old was shot.

If the savages who make Buffalo unsafe will shoot a 3-year-old, odds are slim that they will spare social workers. Nonetheless, moonbattery dictates that they be deployed to address crime, because police officers only make matters worse.

“It is my concern that that community has experienced a very deeply hurtful trauma, and our response was to re-victimize them with another traumatic event, rather than sending in social workers and mental health counselors,” Walton said.

She said she plans to reallocate $7.5 million of police funds to social programs.

If there are any sane people left in Buffalo, get out before it’s too late — and don’t relocate to a city run by Democrats, or you will only have to escape again.

Mob of Savages Prevails in Philly Suburb

It takes no more than a tweeted rumor to set off the mob. Pray no one tweets about you, or you could end up like Edward Cagney Mathews of the Philadelphia suburb Mount Laurel. After context-free video of him spewing racial invective at a Neighbor of Color who pushed him and called him a “white monkey” hit social media, Black Lives Matter showed up at his house.

In the video, he behaved like a belligerent jerk asking for trouble. But if belligerent jerks don’t have the right of free speech, then no one does — and if they don’t get to live in a civilized country, no one does.

Renegade Tribute reports:

Mathews was placed under arrest for bias intimidation and harassment and was later hit with additional bias intimidation and assault charges. As best as I can tell, the assault charges may have been for him getting up in his neighbor’s face and pushing his belly into him.

Not even one member of the mob who attacked him, responding police, or his house was placed under arrest.

Watch how the mob behaves as Mathews is taken into custody:

It is now commonplace to see savages throwing missiles at the police, knowing that there will be no consequences because the liberal establishment will always take their side.

Rather than telling BLM not to form vigilante mobs and surround and attack people’s homes and instead let our justice system work out such disputes, Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina told the mob they “had every right to be upset” because of his “despicable conduct.”

The town’s mayor Stephen Steglik issued a statement that Mathews makes him sick to his stomach. Mathews “is not who we are.” The mob is.

Officers were hit with pepper spray and bottles. Not only Mathews’ townhouse but those adjoining it were damaged by the mob. But he’s the one in jail, not for being a jerk, but for angering Black Lives Matter.

Civilization is collapsing before our eyes. Liberals may not like what replaces it as much as they think.

Fined $18,000 for Clearing Trees to Build Home

As we have seen, shoplifting in California is effectively legal now, those in charge openly siding with criminals and against business owners. It sounds like anarchy, but the system of government imposed under single-party Democrat rule is better categorized as “anarchotyranny.” Yes, thieves and other sociopaths can do whatever they please, but it is a different story for property owners who clear trees to build something:

A couple who bulldozed and buried 36 Joshua trees to make way for a home were recently fined $18,000…

Imagine the havoc a Black Lives Matter rioter would have to wreak to get punished like that.

This is why the cost of housing keeps Californians poor. You can’t put up so much as a garden shed without violating forty-eleven regulations.

As in other forms of tyranny, not even Big Government can be everywhere, so informants play a crucial role:

An investigation into the destruction began Feb. 11, when a Morongo Basin resident saw his neighbors using a tractor to mow down dozens of the twisted, bristled trees and reported it to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife through a tip line, wildlife officials said.

East Germany’s infamous Stasi had about 189,000 informers. Deutsche Welle reports that “political ideals served as the primary motivation for people to turn in their neighbors, friends and acquaintances to the secret police.” Similarly, sheer moonbattery is enough to motivate liberals to rat people out. The State doesn’t even need to pay them rewards.

George Will Equates January 6 With September 11

As documented here and elsewhere, America faces disgraceful ruin at the hands of an enemy within — namely, the leftists in the process of consolidating absolute power. To make matters worse, the opposition has also been enervated and corrupted by its own enemy within. Some Republican politicians knife their own party in the back in return for 30 pieces of praise from the liberal media. Supposedly conservative media figures include fifth column columnists like George Will, who compares a few hundred yahoos allowed to trespass in the Capitol with 3,000 Americans murdered by Islamic terrorists:

“I would like to see January 6 as burned into the American mind as firmly as 9/11.”

Yes, Will really said this:

That’s why Will supports a 9/11-style commission, that is, a gala theatrical extravaganza intended to keep the sheep focused on demonizing anyone Dems can manage to associate with the one riot liberals don’t approve of rather than the far more alarming developments currently emerging, such as a multipronged attack on our system of government (institutionalizing voter fraud, packing the Supreme Court, packing the Senate, etc.), incipient hyperinflation, and a government-facilitated foreign invasion.

Osama bin Laden has been replaced as the personification of evil by the Buffalo Guy. The Democrat Party/establishment media wants to make a monster of anyone who objects to voter fraud in the runup to establishing indefinite single-party rule with the For the People Act.

George Will demonstrates how you get to be a token “conservative” on left-wing propaganda programs like This Week. “Even I, as conservative, agree that all conservatives should be impaled on stakes…”

Meanwhile, the USA faces lawlessness that puts even the fearsome Buffalo Guy into perspective. For example, Minneapolis continues to flounder in anarchy due to a predictable shortage of police. Spiking violent crime has highlighted the insanity of the movement to defund the police. The recent street violence against Jews by Hamas supporters in American cities reflects the inevitability of bad people exploiting lawless conditions.

Even the Clintonista James Carville is denouncing the “faculty lounge politics” of the Biden Administration, which is hardly likely to reassert law & order. However, Biden’s handlers surely approve of Trump supporters being locked in solitary confinement for months on end, largely on trespassing and disorderly conduct charges. The term for the form of government we will have under single-party Democrat rule is anarchotyranny.

In Broad Daylight in America Under Liberal Rule

Be careful not to go out in broad daylight in our nation’s capital city. It isn’t safe under Mayor Muriel Bowser, who made her attitude toward law & order clear during last year’s tsunami of riots by painting BLACK LIVES MATTER in giant letters on 16th Street leading to the White House:

Meanwhile, in our nation’s largest city, which is under the control of a radical leftist who physically participated in painting BLACK LIVES MATTER on several streets to showcase his politically fashionable hostility toward law enforcement:

You can wallow in moonbattery or you can live in a civilized country. You can’t do both for long.

Antifa/BLM Own NYC Streets, Attack Journalist

Meanwhile, as our liberal overlords exploit the insurrection at the Capitol last Wednesday as a pretext to crush free speech, Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue to enjoy a free hand to dominate public spaces, and not only in dystopian Portland. Yesterday they flexed their muscle in New York City:

A large group of Antifa and Black Lives Matter demonstrators wearing black bloc and carrying shields marched in the streets of Manhattan on Sunday. …

The marchers chanted, “Whose mother-f**king streets? Our mother-f**king streets” …

Here’s how they treat interlopers on their MF’ing streets:

Social-media journalist Tara Szczepanski reported being assaulted by some from the rally. She reported having an egg smashed on the back of her head.

In the video she tweeted, she is assaulted by at least two of the men. One sprayed her with a chemical string and another appeared to strike her with a skateboard.

The mob identified her as “a f**king Nazi” and accused her of supporting the President of the USA. Anyone who fails to embrace Antifa/BLM ideology is a Nazi and will be treated accordingly.

Szczepanski rushed to nearby NYPD police officers and appears to be assaulted again — in view of the cops. She said they “they told me to stay 6 feet from them and let me be attacked.”

What else would you expect in Bill de Blasio’s New York?

Let’s watch some of Szczepanski’s video, since the MSM doesn’t cover stuff like this:

Our progressive future opens before us like the gates of hell.

Probation for Burglarizing While on Probation for Burglarizing

In a single-party Democrat jurisdiction like Chicago, what do you suppose the penalty might be for committing burglary while on probation for committing burglary? That’s right, probation:

An accused serial burglar and thief has been sentenced to probation for a burglary in Lincoln Park last year — even though he was already on probation for two burglaries at the time of the alleged break-in.

Jonathan Hernandez, 26, pleaded guilty to one count of theft in exchange for an 18-month probation sentence in the latest case, according to court records. He has been arrested seventeen times in Chicago since March 2014, according to CPD records.

Young as he is, Hernandez is a cinch to clear 100 arrests in his career, provided the government can keep law-abiding homeowners disarmed — and Chicago has repressive gun laws.

Among the bullet points on his résumé, Hernandez has been charged with threatening to shoot an off-duty cop whose garage he was allegedly burglarizing.

That Hernandez is still running around loose confirms that burglary is effectively legal in Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago.

But don’t try opening your business in violation of lockdown restrictions, or you might get in trouble.

Seattle May Effectively Legalize Crime

Leave it to a city at the cutting edge of liberalism to discover a way to combat “mass incarceration” that works even better than letting all the criminals loose. The moonbats running Seattle have stumbled onto the solution of never locking them up in the first place by establishing poverty, mental illness, and recreation drug use as legal defenses.

Via Judicial Watch:

Elected officials in a major U.S. city plan to pass a law that will allow thieves to sell items they steal if they do it to earn money for basic needs and trespassers to set up camp on private property when it is to obtain adequate shelter. Dozens of other crimes—including assault and harassment—will be excused under the preposterous measure if suspects are poor, mentally ill or addicted to drugs. It is being crafted as a poverty defense and will allow municipal court judges to dismiss a multitude of crimes if poverty, mental illness or a substance-abuse disorder drove the perpetrator to commit them.

We are closing in on absolute anarchotyranny, under which only those who are not criminals need to fear law enforcement (e.g., people who want to run a business during COVID-19 lockdowns, people who want to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms).

The proposal was first introduced during the Seattle City Council’s budget deliberations weeks ago, according to a local news report. It … has gained incredible steam and appears to have enough support to alter the city code early next year.

The aftershocks of the fabricated hullabaloo over George Floyd’s fentanyl overdose may prove even more devastating than the initial wave of rioting.

The force behind the push for the new law is a leftist organization called Decriminalize Seattle that opposes policing and the criminal legal system. The group has called for defunding the Seattle Police Department by at least 50%…

Crime was already skyrocketing in Seattle even before anti-police, pro-criminal Black Lives Matter mania took hold. Residents are advised to get out before property values collapse. Better a city should burn to the ground than succumb to moonbattery.

Judge Orders Half of Orange County Jail Let Loose

Given the excessive power held by ideologically deranged judges in California, almost any extreme of malevolent lunacy can be inflicted on the public in the name of COVID-19 — even letting half the criminals out of jail:

A Superior Court judge has ordered that the Orange County jail population be cut in half, ruling that the sheriff had failed to reduce the number of inmates to ensure adequate social distancing.

Credit the ACLU with an assist:

The move came in response to a lawsuit filed in April by the American Civil Liberties Union against Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes, seeking the release of medically vulnerable and disabled inmates as well as necessary measures to protect those remaining in the jails from the coronavirus.

So Judge Peter Wilson decided to let half the criminals loose. That way, everyone will be safe from the ChiCom virus.

Barnes said in a statement that the order would result in the release of more than 1,800 inmates, many of whom have been convicted of or are awaiting trial for violent crimes…

Why not just let all the criminals loose and put anyone who isn’t a criminal in jail? At least the law-abiding would be safer there than out in public in a state succumbing to anarchotyranny.

Wilson has commanded Sheriff Barnes to maintain the insane reductions “until the current COVID-19 emergency is declared terminated.” You can see why they wanted the curve as flat as possible; the flatter the curve, the longer they can draw this out.

Daisy Ramirez of the ACLU of Southern California crows triumphantly:

“This order recognizes that we must not forget the humanity of incarcerated people, and they should not be put in mortal danger.”

However, forgetting the humanity of regular Americans and putting them in mortal danger by unleashing violent felons upon them is SOP for the ACLU and for California’s liberal overlords.

Daily Wire has some background on the Orange County jail, which at least until recently was the second largest in California:

Barnes reduced the jail population by about 45% last spring and was instructed by a court to release even more detainees, including some sex offenders. According to the agency, the average daily jail population count declined to 2,826 on May 11 at the height of the active COVID-19 cases in its system. That number has steadily increased to 3,628, far below its capacity of 6,159.

Of Orange County’s 691 inmates who have tested positive for COVID-19 since March, none have died, and only three have been admitted to hospitals for treatment, recent data provided by the department indicates.

But we already knew this isn’t about keeping criminals safe from coronavirus. It’s about unleashing chaos while simultaneously criminalizing constructive activities like running a restaurant.

The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble

In case anyone besides Democrats has forgotten, Mark Dice reminds us that the First Amendment guarantees not only freedom of speech and religion, but also “the right of the people peaceably to assemble”:

Actually, the capital of Oregon is Salem, but Portland is certainly the cultural capital of the people in charge. You might say the 100+ leftist riots that have occurred there this year have made it the cultural capital of moonbats throughout the country.

Oregon Gauleiter Kate Brown’s assertion that there is no difference between calling the police over a noisy party and ratting out neighbors for seating seven at the Thanksgiving table is absurd. In the former, the infraction is not gathering; it is creating a disturbance — similar to the case if Oregon’s leftist rulers were to enforce laws against rioting. With Thanksgiving restrictions, it is explicitly the gathering itself that is forbidden, despite being a fundamental right guaranteed in the Constitution.

We Haven’t Forgotten Who Terrorized the Country All Summer

Not everyone has forgotten the hundreds upon hundreds of riots leftists recently inflicted on this country with the avid support of the Democrat Party and the rest of the liberal establishment:

Now leftists want us to pretend we don’t notice substantial voter fraud. Making a big enough fuss to potentially change the media-declared result could lead to our neighborhoods getting burned down by mostly peaceful protesters. But if we don’t push back, the USA will be run by corrupt thugs like a Third World country.

Oregon Decriminalizes Hard Drugs

California decriminalized shoplifting. We saw the predictable result. Oregon replies, “Hold my beer.” Greater Portlandia has upped the anarchy ante by decriminalizing hard drugs. The moonbattery-addled state has passed Measure 110:

It reclassifies personal possession of heroin, cocaine, and LSD, from misdemeanors or felonies to violations punishable with a $100 fine.

A “completed health assessment” may do in lieu of the fine.

As with shoplifting in California, it will no longer be worth a police officer’s time to do anything about possession of hard drugs, which may as well be legal.

Peter Zuckerman was the campaign manager for Measure 110. He says passage is “a big step forward.” However,

“Today is a huge day of celebration but the work is not over and we have a lot more work to do to win a better system for everybody,” he said.

What good does it do to effectively legalize hard drugs when people don’t have money to buy the drugs because they are focused on getting high rather than employment? This is a job for wealth redistribution. Utopia is always one more measure away.
