• Eeek! Handful of Cities Offer a Foretaste of America’s Future If Dems Gain Power

    Surge Summary: Turmoil in Democratic-dominated cities across America gives us a glimpse of what America will be like if the Democratic Party takes over the levers of national government in 2020.

    Montgomery County, Maryland, is all in on the left’s agenda, including the anti-police mentality that dominates the left.  Here’s the latest example.

    James Shelton and his young son created a wooden Blue Line flag to honor Montgomery County police officers on National First Responders Day.  The officers expressed their appreciation to Mr. Shelton and his son, and said that the wooden flag would be displayed in their station.

    Opponents of the flag claim that it has been appropriated by white nationalists and is racist.  Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich branded the Blue Line flag “divisive” and “a symbol of dismissiveness” and ordered police not to display the flag.

    Montgomery County, Maryland, has always been liberal.  But this shows just how extreme it has become.  One of the left’s favorite chants in recent years is, “Cops and the Klan go hand in hand.”  It’s disgusting and absurd, especially when today’s police force is the most racially diverse in the history of our country.

    But once again, we see how the left is taking normal conservative impulses, like support for law enforcement, and equating it with racism.  Now that’s divisive!

    The reason I bring this up is because it shows what happens when the left is totally in control.  An act of kindness by a young boy for the police gets twisted by woke progressives who just can’t tolerate it.

    By the way, Montgomery County is a sanctuary county where at least nine illegal immigrants, who should have been deported, have been arrested on charges of rape and sexual assault.

    In New York City, also dominated by the left, there was a mini riot this weekend that was triggered in part by police officers enforcing subway fares.  Fare evasions and crime are so prevalent that city officials recently announced the deployment of an additional 500 officers.

    The city is losing hundreds of millions of dollars because some people think they have a right to ride the subway for free.  Evidently, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez agrees with them.

    Everyone knows what a failure San Francisco is when it comes to homelessness and illegal immigration.  Well, Austin, Texas, has swung hard left in recent years.  So, where does the mayor of Austin go to get advice on homelessness?  California!

    Guess what? Austin now has a huge problem with homelessness.  Governor Greg Abbott is stepping in and sending state officials to clear out Austin’s homeless encampments.

    Speaking of California, many in the Golden State are seriously reconsidering an effort to relax enforcement of minor property crimes.  The liberal experiment, backed by the ACLU and other progressive groups, had predictable results:  Shoplifting, vandalism and other property crimes have skyrocketed in recent years.

    My friends, we don’t have to guess at what the country will be like if the left takes back the White House and the Senate next year.  From Montgomery County, Maryland, to Austin, Texas, from New York to San Francisco, there are plenty of case studies warning us against the left’s agenda.
