“Rising crime”, Monterey Herald, June 3, 2021
On May 26, Jen Psaki, speaking for Biden (since he can rarely answer press questions) responded to a question on the present US crime waves: She stated falsely that the present administration was not responsible for the murder rate rise. This is completely inaccurate since the murder rates have spiked up to 800% in Democrat-run cities, and only Democrat-run cities. In fact, Portland leads the pack! Furthermore, she failed to acknowledge that the 2020 murder spike in New York, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Washington DC and other Democrat-run cities were clearly due to leftist BLM and Antifa riots, which Biden shamefully failed to condemn during the entire year and even to date. Just the opposite actually, going so far as to defund police (and hastily trying to refund them months later due to disastrous results in crime waves, who’d have thought!) removing cash bail, as well as the current Democrat policies which have obviously contributed to the massive ongoing crime waves.
