Sometimes, the Dems are so out there that one just has to laugh.
After all, it is pitiably impressive that they manage to blame literally everyone but themselves for the outcomes of their own terrible, pro-crime policies.
Take the latest Mayor of Chicago, for instance.
“Brandon” Johnson actually blamed corporate tax rates for the violent behavior of hundreds of Chicago youth.
And while his accusation was nonsensical, “Brandon” knew that his constituents wouldn’t think too deeply.
And, not wanting to be outdone, yet another “Brandon” has also jumped onboard with the absurd blame game.
Baltimore City Mayor Brandon Scott has recently decided to blame foreign corporations for rapidly escalating crime rates, failing to consider that zero bail policies and other such nonsense is perhaps the bigger underlying factor.
As detailed by The Blaze, the city of Baltimore has apparently filed a lawsuit against two Korean corporations, Kia and Hyundai, claiming that the auto manufacturers have allegedly been “failing to equip their vehicles with industry-standard vehicle immobilization technology.”
Baltimore city officials added that “[a] rash of thefts of these vehicles [has occurred] not only in Baltimore City but nationwide. Five hundred seventy-seven Kias and Hyundais have been stolen in Baltimore so far this year, a pace that will likely result in a year-end total that more than doubles that of 2022.”
Apparently, the Korean manufacturers dare to produce cars that can be started without a key, which, per the office of “Brandon” Scott, is “a flaw that has been the subject of numerous TikTok videos demonstrating the ease with which these cars can be stolen.”
Well, Mr. Scott, Republicans have been trying to ban TikTok for multiple reasons, yet Biden insists on letting TikTok thrive, despite its obvious encouragement of criminal behavior and societal decline.
Moreover, how about holding the criminals themselves culpable for the crimes they commit? Imagine that novel concept!
Scott also raged that the “cost-cutting measures” are apparently “unacceptable” since they have supposedly come “at the expense of public safety.”
“They have left our residents vulnerable to crime and are significantly burdening our police resources,” Scott continued angrily.
Is he for real? Does he not think that an openly anti-police attitude may also come “at the expense of public safety?”
Are Dems seriously so deluded that they literally sue corporations for rising crime, when rising crime rates are clearly correlated to an absence of justice?
Commissioner Michael Harrison detailed how the city police have “tracked the striking increase of auto thefts of Kia and Hyundai vehicles throughout the city,” noting that “year-to-date, auto thefts are up 95%, with Kia and Hyundais representing 41% of all stolen vehicles.”
Nice admission on Baltimore’s rising crime rates. Now why would that be?
Amazingly, Dems in other cities have also sued corporations for rising crime, doing literally anything but looking in the mirror.
As also reported by The Blaze, the City of Seattle filed a lawsuit against the same automakers for apparently failing to “abate public safety [hazards].”
According to City Attorney Ann Davison, “Kia and Hyundai chose to cut corners and cut costs at the expense of their customers and the public. As a result, our police force has had to tackle a huge rise in vehicle theft and related problems with already stretched resources.”
Perhaps those police resources wouldn’t be so “stretched” if they weren’t defunded, Ms. Harrison.
“Now Seattle taxpayers must shoulder the burden of the increase in theft,” she remarked, adding that “Kia and Hyundai need to take responsibility for the public safety hazard that they created.”
Sure. More like Seattle taxpayers must “shoulder the burden” of defunding police, rising costs, and a host of other ailments associated with Dem rule.
