Issues That Favor Republicans - Crime


Recommended Posts

At this point in time, crime is an issue that seems to favor the Republicans over the Democrats.  That is, it seems that the majority of voters think that the Republicans would do a better job at handling this issue than the Democrats.

We definitely have a problem with crime in our country. 

Unfortunately for our nation, the Republicans in our government (AKA, the Radical Right Republicans (the RRRs); AKA, the Pro-Coup MAGA-Republicans) are better at selling lies, than the Democrats are at selling the truth.  As a result, we are bombarded with RRR disinformation about our crime problem that blames it ALL on Biden and the Democrats, and we hear little from the Democrats to counter that disinformation.

The RRRs like to say that the Democrats are “soft on crime” and “pro-crime”.  However, there is significant evidence that Trump and the RRRs are “soft on crime” and “pro-crime”.  Note:

> Much of the crime in our country involves gun violence.  The Democrats want to combat gun violence.  However, the RRRs have repeatedly refused to do anything to combat gun violence.  (Apparently, when it comes to gun violence, the Democrats are anti-crime and pro-life, and the RRRs are pro-crime and anti-life.)

> As for murder rates in our country:  A March 2022 study by some fact checkers found that the 25 states that voted for Trump had a murder rate 40% higher than the 25 states that voted for Biden.

> Trump and the RRRs are inciting violence against election workers and election officials.

> Trump and the RRRs are inciting voter intimidation at polling sites and drop boxes.  That is, they are inciting Trumpers, including heavily armed Trumpers, to behave like thugs and to illegally intimidate voters who they don’t want to vote.

> When Trump was the Divider-in-Chief, he incited violence during the Covid crisis, with the full support of the RRRs.  For example:
* He incited violence against Asian Americans, when he used various anti-Asian terms to describe the Covid virus.
*He incited violence against healthcare workers who were fighting to save American lives from Covid.
*He incited violence against the governor of Michigan when she took steps to protect Michiganders from Covid.  (These were steps that were recommended by the CDC.)

> Trump and the RRRs praised a guy who killed two unarmed people with an assault rifle, and attempted to kill a third unarmed person.  These people were peacefully protesting the unnecessary deaths of black people at the hands of certain police (e.g., George Floyd and Breonna Taylor); and the killer was looking for unarmed people to threaten and terrorize with his deadly weapon.

> Trump and some RRRs are attracted to a group that wants mass executions of people who that group falsely accuses of doing evil deeds.  In other words, that group wants to commit mass murder of people they don’t like. 

> A number of RRRs colluded with Trump to illegally overturn the 2020 election that Biden legally won; for example, they tried to replace legal slates of electors with illegal slates of electors.

> The RRRs support and praise the rioters who illegally stormed our Capitol on Jan6; and who destroyed and pillaged government property; and who bashed in the heads of Capitol police; and who killed a number of people, and wanted to kill many more people; and who wanted to illegally overthrow our government and install Trump as our dictator, and thus destroy our democracy, and our nation.

> When Trump left office, he stole documents from our government:
* And then, he refused to return the stolen documents, after the government repeatedly asked him to do so for well over a year.
* The stolen documents included documents that contained classified information that could put our national security at risk, and that could get our intelligence people killed, if that information was seen by the wrong people.   
* Trump stored the stolen documents at Mar-a-Lago, which is NOT a secure location for classified documents.  Thus, the stolen classified documents may have been accessible to people who want to put our national security at risk, and who want to kill our intelligence people.
* At this point in time, we don’t know what damage Trump did to our national security and to our intelligence agencies.  The government is now doing a “risk assessment” to determine what damage he did.  Trump impeded that effort for a while; but then the Supreme Court stepped-in, and the risk assessment is now proceeding as it should be.

NOTE:  As we can see from a number of the items above, not only are Trump and the RRRs “soft on crime” and “pro-crime”, they appear to have committed crimes.

The RRRs like to say that the Democrats want to “defund the police”.  Note:

> The phrase “defund the police” is a reaction to the unnecessary violence against minorities at the hands of some (but NOT all) police.  That phrase became the basis of sloganeering and policy for a small number of progressive activists who were frustrated with that violence.  That was VERY unfortunate, because it did a lot of damage to the Democrat Party.  For example, in response to that sloganeering, the RRRs falsely claimed that “defunding the police” was a policy of the Democrat Party as a whole; and unfortunately for our nation, MANY voters believe that false claim.

Bottom line:  The claim that the Democrat Party wants to defund the police is another Radical Right Republican myth.  In other words, that claim is another Big Lie. 

> Some fact checkers found that large cities with Democrat mayors spend far more money on policing, and hire far more police officers, than large cities with Republican mayors.  For example:
* The 25 largest Democrat-run cities employ 75% more police officers than the 25 largest Republican-run cities, on a per capita basis.
* The 25 largest Democrat-run cities spend 38% more on policing than the 25 largest Republican-run cities, on a per capita basis.

> Biden and the Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan.  That plan provided $350 billion that local governments can use for their police departments (e.g., to hire more police).  Most of the RRRs voted against the plan.    

Bottom line:  The RRRs like to falsely accuse the Democrats of wanting to “defund the police”, but the RRRs don’t want to “fund the police”.

> The RRRs actually want to defund the FBI.  Why?  The answer:  Because the FBI enforced our laws.  That is, the FBI retrieved documents from Mar-a-Lago that Trump stole from our government; documents that he was illegally storing at Mar-a-Lago; documents that he illegally refused to return, after the government repeatedly asked him to do so for well over a year; and included documents that contained classified information that could put our national security at risk, and that could get our intelligence people killed, if it was seen by the wrong people. (Bottom line:  Not only are the RRRs soft on crime and pro-crime, they don’t care about our national security or the lives of our intelligence people.)
 
In conclusion:  The Democrats really need to improve their messaging strategy in order to combat the Radical Right Republican’s success at selling lies.  And they should have been doing that many months ago.
