Progressives blamed the gun, now they blame the car

The mother of all SUVs!

Defendants in criminal trials are permitted to offer alternative theories to the crime. Maybe the public defenders for Darrell Brooks will blame Elon Musk and his self-driving software for the carnage in Waukesha. For awhile, his Teslas were driving into police squad cars. Sounds like the Twilight Zone. 

If so, the career criminal will have the support of the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris news media. National Review took notice with “The curious case of the Waukesha ‘killer car:”

CNN on Sunday 11-28-21 took its ignorance of facts one step further in reporting that Waukesha “will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others.”

The Washington Post took a similar phantom-car perspective, writing in a tweet: “Here’s what we know so far on the sequence of events that led to the Waukesha tragedy caused by a SUV.

NR notes that the progressive press wrote in the active tense and listed the subject by name who drove his car through that Charlottesville VA protest.

Killer car

The New York Post explains:

There’s a reason that MSNBC and CNN and CBS refer to it as merely a “parade crash” and quickly move on to other news. … There’s a reason that President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have not prejudged the violent, racist, BLM-supporting career criminal charged with murder. … They are burying the Waukesha story because it threatens the very core of the progressive revolution convulsing the country: criminal-justice “reform.”

But not ‘public safety’?

Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm, Democrat, shared the stage 03-11-21 with notorious San Francisco D.A. Chesa Boudin. Subject: the “Progressive Prosecutor movement.” (Source here.)

Anyone dispute that San Francisco has become a dystopia? The scion of 1960s’ Weather Underground criminals reads out of the Woke progressive playbook, blaming poverty, wealth inequality and unmet needs. “The result has been an increase in crime so sharp that San Francisco’s liberal residents are … supporting a recall of Mr. Boudin, with a vote set for June 2022,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

He has emptied the jails back onto the streets of San Francisco’s — inmate population is one-quarter what it was just two years ago. WSJ reports “More than half of all offenders, and three-quarters of the most violent ones, who are released from jail before trial commit new crimes.”

→ “Chisholm’s dangerous proteges” 

→ We count 5 felony and 1 misdemeanor bail jumpings on Trevon Adams’ rap sheet. He’s the guy arrested for the whacking at a gas station just east of Madison on Milwaukee Street.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: It’s not just John Chisholm. Wisconsin RightNow names the eight who share responsibility for putting Darrell Brooks back on the streets. They include Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul. Like the court commissioner who set one of the low bails; he formerly managed the City of Milwaukee Equal Rights Commission.

    That is really odd that they don’t publish his name.

    A couple days after the slaughter in Waukesha, a report on WPR referred to it as an “incident” and neglected to mention the perpetrator’s name or his lengthy criminal record, both of which had by then been released to the public. If the POS who launched the SUV into the parade had been a white Trump voter, his photo would have been plastered everywhere amid calls for every punishment the law allows, and then some. I wonder if GoFundMe will block any efforts to raise funds for his legal defense the way they did for Kyle Rittenhouse.

    It IS not credible, is it not, how the MSM slip-slides away from facts. Not only facts, but reality. Each time a new example is offered up manifesting their absolute disregard of the world around us, it continues to fascinate and disgust. Incredible, Nay, prodigious & provocative, thumbing of their noses at the citizenry of this fine country. Yet daily and eagerly lapped up by the loudest Leftist mopes…

    Remington, one of the oldest companies in the US was sued out of business over Sandy Hook. You know, it was the gun that killed those kids not the shooter. Now it’s Ford and GM’s turn. Narcotics kill a lot of people too. They jump right in your mouth!

  5. God who gave us Life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed the conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

    No wonder the Democrat’s Kancel Kulture Klub removed your statue.
    You were unashamedly pro-Life.

    I have a question to ask. Can we the people sue our overlords when they repeatedly let dangerous, violent criminals out of jail on signature bonds or bonds that are of such a low amount that they can easily come up with the money? After all, how are they protecting us when they let career criminals out with no consequences.

    After all, what difference does it make when the D.A. or the Court Commissioners, or the Judges let career criminals out again and again only to commit more and more crimes.

    The question I would have is; are these people who let violent repeat offenders out on such low bonds or just signature bonds the same as the likes of one, Robert Courtney, who was a Kansas City Pharmacist who was accused and convicted of diluting medications for cancer patients.

    I for one would like to know if our elected officials are intentionally letting these violent criminals out to commit more and more crimes or are they just so stupid that they think that crime will be solved if they let the violent criminals go?

    If the former is the case, in my opinion, these people belong in JAIL! Just like Robert Courtney who is serving time for his crimes as I see no difference in principle between what he did and what is going on in the county, state and national levels.


    • Gary L. Kriewald says:

      Their approach to crime is based on the logic of a child: There are a lot of people in jail; jail isn’t a nice place. What should we do? Let them out.

      Yesterday a 13-year-old stole a car and crashed it on the Beltline. Wanna bet he’s already back on the street thanks to a Dane County judge who embraces the logic outlined above?

      A career criminal purposely drives his car into a Christmas parade killing 6 and injuring dozens, mostly kids. Why was he living among us? See above.

      When will the limit be reached? I don’t mean the limit of progressive elites to endanger the lives and property of the rest of us because they know no limits. I mean the limit of the rest of us to tolerate their self-righteous indulgence of criminals at our expense.

    Jason Riley in The Wall Street Journal:

    “Waukesha Killings Make the Media Colorblind Again
    The contrast with the Kyle Rittenhouse case illustrates the double standard.”
