You don’t have to wait till November to see what Joe Biden meant when he said that he wants to “transform” America on Sunday. The Democrat version of America can be seen in any big blue city near you.
Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Minneapolis, Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Houston, and others are run by Democrats and have been for a long time. They have had decades to bring their idea of American utopia in their cities, and the result is that our cities are in an ever-worsening state of decay.
While Democrat prosecutors release more criminals onto the streets to harass law-abiding citizens, those same citizens are hindered in their second amendment right to protect themselves with firearms. Chicago, which has strict gun-control measures enacted, is overwhelmed with gun violence year-round with dozens of shootings every weekend.
Other blue cities have the same problem, albeit on a smaller scale. The recent unrest over the death of George Floyd only increased gun violence in New York City, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Minneapolis, and Chicago. But the Democrats always argue that people don’t need guns to defend themselves, they have the police for that — but not for long.
In Democrat cities, where law-abiding citizens have been stripped of their 2nd amendment right to defend themselves, there is a new cry to “defund” the police in the name of racial justice. George Floyd’s death under the knee of a police officer in Minneapolis triggered demands to defund, dismantle, abolish the police in these cities.
The city council of Minneapolis voted to dismantle their police department and other blue cities are calling to “reimagine” policing. Meanwhile, the police in these blue cities are often told to stand down while rioters and protestors destroy police precincts, police cars, neighborhoods, and businesses.
To compound the problem of rampant crime, gun control, and debilitated police departments, these blue cities often have soft-on-crime, George Soros approved or funded District Attorneys, securing “bail reform” and refusing to prosecute lesser crimes like shoplifting and drug charges. The bail reform helped rioters, looters, and arsonists to get right back onto the streets even if they had been arrested. Bail reform in practical terms means more criminals on the streets in these blue cities and a more dangerous environment for citizens of every race.
While pretending to fight racial injustice in incarceration rates, the Democrats and the mainstream media refuse to acknowledge the crime in Black neighborhoods that initiates police contacts, arrests, and incarceration. As the crimes are ignored, the criminals in these neighborhoods are emboldened to commit more crimes against the innocent in those same neighborhoods.
Crime and its associated precursors are just one aspect of the liberal utopia that Joe Biden and his leftist backers are gunning for in the 2020 election. Under Democrat control, many of America’s great cities are experiencing an explosion of homelessness, mental illness, and drug abuse that the party of social justice refuses to address.
In a nutshell, Biden’s vision of the transformation of America is previewed in many Democrat-controlled cities and states. There is no mystery here like there was when Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America. Much of Obama’s vision has been enacted, and Americans can see the results. Democrats and Joe Biden want to perpetuate racial division indefinitely because it gives them power. Democrats and Joe Biden want the American people living in a veritable hell on earth: Disarmed and huddling in their homes in fear after the police are abolished and criminals rule the streets.
