We have heard a lot from AOC, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib in recent weeks. All three of these communist squad members have made headlines for their absurdness. Then, Ayanna Pressley is not to be outdone by her squad counterparts, releasing a massive criminal justice reform bill.
The proposal is masked behind the label of criminal justice reform, but it is so much more than that. In the bill, Pressley proposes changes to how many people can be jailed, legalizing sex work, and much more. Pressley said, “for far too long, those closest to the pain have not been closest to the power, resulting in a racist, xenophobic, rogue, and fundamentally flawed criminal legal system.”
There are massive issues in this bill that surpass any suggestion of racism or power. In the bill, Pressley wants the elimination of the death penalty, life without parole and the use of solitary confinement as a means of punishment. Pressley states that the bill will reduce social injustice so the criminal justice system is smaller and more humane. Unfortunately, the bill will only enable criminals.
For example, buried deep in the bill is the removal of any prosecution of drug related offenses. The removal of prosecution for low-level offenses such as loitering and certain thefts are also included. Legalization of marijuana and removal of some bond programs are included. Does anyone else see issues here?
Pressley doesn’t stop there, but lets talk about these for a moment. So, we are going to release criminals on the streets. You know, those who have been convicted of selling drugs to minors. If you don’t want to pay for your toothpaste or deodorant, no worries because they will no longer prosecute you. No problem if you kill someone, you just have to do 15 years, or 10 years if you are over the age of 50. How absolutely absurd.
The lefts war on prison’s are insane. The excuse is that minorities are targeted as part of the current system. Yet, that is simply a lie. Sure, maybe their incarceration rate is higher. The left ignores the fact that this is a people problem, not a system problem. If someone commits a crime, they go to jail. If they obey the law, they are free. It’s pretty simple actually.
The bill continues through “criminal justice reform” by proposing an increase in the minimum wage, funding the Green New Deal, paying reparations for slavery and a permanent assault weapons ban. The gun reforms also include a mandatory gun buyback program and federally restricted gun and ammunition manufacturing.
She continues by proposing housing assistance, free college tuition, open borders, federal restrictions on local law enforcement, and multiple protections for LGBTQ Americans. The bill is simply a wish list for every special interest the Democrats are targeting.
The thought that this bill is to address criminal justice is absurd. The Democrats efforts here are disingenuous. This is simple pandering to special interests in an effort to win some votes. In a culture where no one wants to offend anyone, Democrats believe they can pander to these special interests and win the election.
The left wants to erase any punishment for anything. Simply, if it feels good you should do it. It’s obvious that the communist squad feels this way. AOC and Tlaib have no concern for campaign finance law. Ilhan Omar has no concern for campaign finance or tax laws. Maybe we will learn Pressley did something in the coming days as well, who knows.
These types of plans continue the war on our law enforcement officers who are already under scrutiny. The problem is not law enforcement, guns, property owners, CEO’s or colleges. This type of social warfare is simply leading to more division. Obviously, this division is exactly what the left wants in their efforts to push us into communism.
