Andy Ngo explains in Unmasked that the BLM organization and Antifa operate in tandem and are run by Marxists who seek nothing less than to destroy America—its governments; its houses of worship; its monuments to historic figures; and its flag and national anthem. They also seek to destroy free enterprise and to replace the standard pedagogy in schools with Marxist Critical Race Theory, hoping to breed generations of Marxist revolutionaries to promote violent overthrow. These efforts endlessly manifest themselves across the nation in the looting and burning of businesses, government buildings, and churches; robbery; assaults; and murder. They are furthered by many Democrat District Attorneys, Mayors, and Governors.
The violence is part of a larger stratagem. With the Biden Administration’s complicity, Democrats controlling cities, counties, and states are aiding the destruction by removing all obstacles to violence. They deny police the means necessary to stop rioting, looting, arson, assault, and murder. They release those arrested without charge. They limit the charges brought against violent felons, so they avoid execution and long prison sentences. They accept plea deals that put violent felons back on the streets within months or a term of years far below ordinary sentences. They refuse to prosecute violent felons. They advocate early release of felons. In short, they are systematically undermining the criminal justice system by defeating its primary purposes: protection of the public and justice for crime victims.
Those spearheading the efforts were put in office by voting majorities, many of whom mistakenly thought “social justice” meant fair treatment. Those they elected condemn the United States, the Constitution, and the criminal justice system and favor authoritarian rule. PACs and non-profits funded by billionaire George Soros figure prominently in the financing of dozens of these politicians. Consider a few choice examples.
George Soros’s Justice and Public Safety PAC donated nearly $1 million to help elect prosecutors committed to avoid prosecution of criminals in Fairfax and Arlington Counties, Virginia. Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano recently distinguished himself by entering a plea deal with Oscar Roberto Zaldivar, age 53, who confessed to multiple sex offenses. The felonies were heinous, involving sodomy and aggravated sexual battery of a young girl repeated over five years, beginning when she was five and ending at the time of his arrest when she was 10. Crimes of this horrific nature ordinarily warrant a life sentence, but Descano entered a plea deal with Zaldivar for a 17 year and two-month sentence. Descano has come undersevere criticism, not only for this shameful failure to demand a life sentence, but also for refusing to prosecute all manner of crimes involving theft. A recall effort is underway.
George Soros’s PAC also funded the campaign of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin (son of Weather Underground parents convicted of murder) who drew national headlines when he announced that his office would no longer prosecute prostitution, public camping, public urination, and other “quality-of-life crimes,” exacerbating lewd and lascivious behavior, drug abuse, trespass, theft, and unsanitary conditions throughout the city. Boudin’s unwillingness to prosecute thieves has turned San Francisco into a pre-civilization where hoodlums brazenly pull goods off store shelves at Walgreens and steal expensive handbags at Neiman Marcus in broad daylight without any police response, leading several stores to close. Efforts to recall Boudin are underway.
George Soros’s PAC also gave millions to elect George Gascon District Attorney of Los Angeles. Most recently, Gascon’s office registered no objection to the parole of Robert F. Kennedy assassin Sirhan Sirhan, sending no prosecutor to attend his parole hearing. Sirhan Sirhan was granted parole subject to confirmation by Governor Gavin Newsom. Gascon refuses to seek the death penalty and will not seek sentencing enhancements in criminal cases. Renewed efforts to recall Gascon are underway.
George Soros’s PAC gave $2 million to elect Kimberly Foxx to be Cook County States Attorney. She not only refused to prosecute Jussie Smollett, who allegedly staged a hate crime, she also dropped(according to a study by the Chicago Tribune) 29.9 percent of all felony charges, including those for murder, causing 25,183 accused individuals to go free.Recall efforts are underway.
Restoration of law and order requires that a silent majority become vocal and vote out those responsible for the emasculation of the police and the support of Marxist revolutionaries. There appears to be a coordinated effort to elect those who will violate the law by using their offices to aid and abet crime in jurisdictions across the country. Those who finance and engage in that coordination should be investigated and, if they have violated criminal laws, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
