Dem Lawmaker Throws In Towel: “It’s time to talk about bringing in the National Guard”

A democratic councilman from New Orleans, Oliver Thomas, suggested calling in the National Guard to stop the violence in the Dem-controlled city as the politicians refuse or are unable to do their jobs.

“Maybe it’s time to talk about bringing in the National Guard,” Thomas said according to WDSU 6. “If it’s realistic to save lives, to stop these people from coming to shoot up our town.”

“If it’s realistic to stop them from disrespecting our municipal and criminal laws that may be the only realistic thing we can count on,” he added. Thomas said earlier on Fox News:

“This outburst of indiscriminate crime in too many of our cities includes New Orleans.

“People want a balanced response. We want to reform the system. 

“We want 21st-century policing. 

“We want respect for the law, just like we want respect for our citizens, but we don’t want to see anything goes.

“When I use the term Gotham City, too often there are people who think in our cities and in New Orleans that they can do what they want, when they want, how they want, where they want, and to whom they want,” he said.

He is not the only one upset so are the voters in the most liberal city in America, San Francisco.

San Francisco voters just voted to recall soft on crime District Attorney Chesa Boudin. 

Boudin was ousted with 61%, compared to 39% who wanted him to stay as the district attorney.

“This is a movement, not a moment in history,” Boudin said. “The coalition that we built is broad, it is diverse, it is strong. And it is a coalition that is deeply committed to justice.”

Mayor London Breed will appoint a temporary successor to fill the DA’s office until the next election.

“Boudin is not keeping San Francisco safe. He refuses to adequately prosecute criminals and fails to take the drug dealing crisis seriously. He doesn’t hold serial offenders accountable, getting them released from custody, and his response to victims is that ‘hopefully’ home burglaries will go down,” the petition to recall said.

The vote put Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón on notice.

“Tonight showed that voters from every community and every walk of life, regardless of political ideology, are rejecting pro-criminal policies that are masked as criminal justice reform,” said a representative of the Recall Gascon Campaign.

“George Gascón and Chesa Boudin’s failed social experiments have destroyed communities while doing nothing to meaningfully reform the system. If LA County voters sign and return their recall petitions, Gascon will be walking the same plank in the near future”
