This is not what Democrats wanted to hear heading into the 2022 midterm elections.
But bad news was on the way.
And Trey Gowdy unleashed one rant that made Democrats gulp in terror.
On Fox News’ “Special Report,” host Bret Baier and his all-star panel discussed the uptick in murder and how it would play politically in America.
Baier played a clip of the late Dr. Charles Krauthammer discussing a previous uptick in murders blaming it on leftists demonizing the police, causing them to pull back.
When cops pull back, the criminals sense opportunity.
Trey Gowdy agreed with Dr. Krauthammer pinning the blame for rising murder rates—murders are up 13.5% so far in 2021 from 2020—on Democrats that support “defunding the police.”
“Yes, Bret, Dr.Krauthammer is right again. And then you add to that the calls to defund the police, and then the thought wing of the Democrat Party, if that’s theright phraseology, some of them even said they wanted to eliminate the police and hire social workers. You have these so-called progressive prosecutors who have never met anyone that they think ought to be in jail,” Gowdy began.
Gowdy also ripped the corporate media for setting the agenda on the left by describing Black Lives Matter and antifa terrorists and rioters as “mostly peaceful protestors” as another cause of the spike in violence in America.
“And then you have got both political parties, both of them have minimized acts the violence on their side. You add to that a media that can’t tell the difference between an arsonist and a peaceful protester, it is the most natural and probable consequence in the world. You are going to see a spike in crime when you have seen a spike in lawlessness,” Gowdy added.
Democrat-run cities like Atlanta, Philadelphia and Los Angeles have seen double-digit percent increases in homicides from 2020 to 2021.
But the worst situation is in Portland where antifa and Black Lives Matter routinely overrun the streets at night because Mayor Ted Wheeler allows his ideological allies to rampage through the streets unchecked.
Murders shot up an astonishing 533% in 2021.
Instead of cracking down on crime, the city DA indicted a police officer causing the entire Rapid Response Team on the police force to resign in protest.
Even Democrat voters are terrified of the anarchy unfolding in the streets and demand answers.
In the latest New York City Democrat mayoral primary, former NYPD officer Eric Adams looks to be on a path to victory after focusing his campaign on crime after polls showed public safety was the number one issue for the city’s overwhelmingly liberal electorate.
Even Joe Biden was so worried about rising crime in Democrat-run cities that he delivered a widely mocked speech where he blamed gun laws in red states for blue state crime and threatened to incinerate Trump-supporting gun owners with nuclear bombs and missiles fired by F15 fighter jets.
Americans of all political persuasions are crying out for an answer to the crime problem.
And Trey Gowdy spelled out the problems Joe Biden is going to have selling the public on the idea he cares about solving this crisis.
