San Francisco Democrats Oust Soros-Backed Radical District Attorney Chesa Boudin

San Francisco residents voted overwhelmingly to recall progressive District Attorney Chesa Boudin for allowing crime to flourish by eliminating cash bail and refusing to prosecute shoplifters, resulting in a plague of smash-and-grab crimes. Homicides, burglaries, and car thefts all increased under Boudin. He refused to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to apprehend criminal illegal aliens. Drug dealing convictions are grounds for deportation. Despite a surging fentanyl crisis that killed nearly 500 people last year in San Francisco, Boudin’s office did not secure a single conviction for dealing the deadly opioid for cases filed during 2021. Homelessness skyrocketed. Only 6.7% of registered voters in San Francisco are Republican, and Chesa was ousted by a 61% to 39% margin, showing that liberals were also affected by crime and changed their perspective.

The campaign was led by an organization called “Safer SF Without Boudin,” which bills itself as a “Democratic-led diverse coalition of community leaders, small business owners, activists, and parents.” In addition, the Asian American voting bloc was reported to have played a massive role in the recall as Asians were targeted in attacks.

It’s no secret billionaire George Soros has been tossing millions of dollars into district attorneys’ races around the nation, with the intent to slide some of his socialist ideas into local communities — specifically, to reform the justice system so that criminals run free and victims, well, victims are then victimized again and again.

But what is new is that Democrats are starting to feel the effects of this far-left “Let the Looters Be Looters and Loot” type of justice system.

Democrats are becoming the victims. And they don’t like it — no, they don’t like it one little bit.

Take San Franciscans, where the liberals loom large.

“In San Francisco, Democrats Are at War With Themselves Over Crime,” The New York Times wrote in a recent headline.

The story was about the city’s leftist district attorney, Chesa Boudin, who took over the office in January 2020 after raising “hundreds of thousands of dollars from donors associated with Soros,” as The Daily Signal wrote, but who is currently facing recall. Why?

“[H]is message of leniency for perpetrators has rankled residents of the city, many of whom feel unsafe and violated by property crimes,” The Times wrote.

No surprise.

Boudin once served as a public defender and translator for Hugo Chavez, the now-deceased socialist leader of Venezuela and had vowed during campaign season in San Francisco to implement no-cash bail policies and reduce incarceration rates — the latter, by simply turning blind eyes to certain crimes and criminals. But what to expect from someone whose parents who were card-carrying members of the Weather Underground, and after mom and dad were sent to prison, was then raised by the co-founders of the Weather Underground, right?
