Take for Example Chesa Boudin. At first glance he appears to be just an average Joe wearing a suit. He is in fact, San Francisco’s District Attorney. Chesa has a very unique and interesting history. Chesa’s mother is Kathy Boudin, who as a member of the radical terrorist group, the Weather Underground, survived the infamous explosion in Greenwich Village, New York City, in March 1970, when a members of the group accidentally detonated a bomb intended for an army ball in New Jersey. She and her husband, David Gilbert, another member, left Chesa with a babysitter so they could take part in an armored car robbery. It became one of New York's most notorious botched heists, a crime that left two police officers and a Brink's truck guard dead in a New York suburb. His parents were the getaway drivers and the officers and the guard were killed by the Black Liberation Army, which was a partner with the Weather Underground, in the attempted robbery to get money to finance their war against America.
Weather Underground...? Where else have we heard of them before? Oh yes, Bill Ayers co-founder of the terrorist organization and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, another member, two self-described Marxist and convicted terrorists, University of Chicago professors, from whose living room their neighbor, another UC professor, launched his political career by announcing he was running for the Illinois Senate seat vacated by his mentor and friend, Alice Palmer. We know him as Barrack Hussein Obama, and he was Palmer’s former Chief of Staff for her failed 1990’s run for the U.S. Congress. Palmer, an avowed communist, had even been an Executive Board member of the Communist Party USA in the 1980s, when she travelled to Moscow on a “Peace Conference.” More like to receive training and orders. Funny how Obama’s core inner circle contained Marxists and terrorists like his own childhood mentor, Frank M. Davis to Alice Palmer to the Ayers and Dohrn, among others... But I’ve digressed.
With his parents in prison, Boudin was raised in Chicago by Ayers and Dohrn. Boudin would go on to study at Yale and Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. Boudin, the product of radical far-left militant politics and an elite education, and the typical American stereotype: wealthy gringo who’s come to bear witness to, and empathize with, the lives of the less fortunate, would later spend, get this, a whole decade traveling extensively in South America, from Chile to Argentina to Ecuador, working, among other jobs, as a “translator for Venezuela's president at the time, Hugo Chavez,” before heading back to the U.S. and becoming a public defender in San Francisco. What? You can’t make this up.
Boudin's election marks the latest victory for a nationwide movement to elect candidates described as “progressive reformers” to similar positions. It's a trend that has come under fire from law enforcement at the highest levels, not least Attorney General William Barr, who said last August that, "the emergence in some of our large cities of district attorneys that style themselves as 'social justice' reformers, who spend their time undercutting the police, letting criminals off the hook and refusing to enforce the law, is demoralizing to law enforcement and dangerous to public safety."
So true. And who has bank-rolled all these District Attorneys? Wait for it... George Soros. The Soros effort is part of a years-long campaign by liberal groups to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system. He heads a consortium of private funders, the American Civil Liberties Union and other social justice groups and Democratic activists seeking social justice. There is that Frankfurt Institute phrase again. The cash infusion in the nonpartisan elections turns underdog challengers into contenders for one of the most powerful positions in local justice systems, roiling conventional law-and-order politics. All the victorious Soros financed DAs, now preside over big cities with skyrocketing crime, frayed relationships with police departments, rioting and looting without holding the perpetrators accountable and calling for the defunding or eradication of the police... Elections do have consequences.
