On Tuesday, San Francisco voters will boot their communist/progressive District Attorney Chesa Boudin from office. Recent polls assure his departure, including the latest one from Public Policy Polling. That poll showed that Boudin will be recalled by at least a 10-point margin.
His recall is likely to have statewide, if not nationwide, consequences. Los Angeles DA George Gascon is facing efforts to recall him for his wildly progressive/destructive policies. Gascon served as San Francisco’s DA before moving to LA, leaving the way open for Boudin to take his place.
As The New American reported on Boudin’s background back in March 2019, just as Boudin was announcing his campaign to replace Gascon,
The Boudin name has a long pedigree in communist and terrorist circles. His maternal grandfather, attorney Leonard Boudin, in addition to being a member of the Communist Party USA, was the longtime legal counsel for Fidel Castro’s communist dictatorship, and was infamous for defending communists, terrorists, and leftists of every stripe.
Chesa Boudin’s parents were members of the terrorist Weather Underground. What’s more, they helped build a bomb factory in San Francisco to aid in their war against “Amerika.”
Chesa Boudin says he is committed to the same goals to which his parents were, and are, committed. They have not repudiated their past violence — which included bombings, rioting, mayhem, and murder.
Even Wikipedia reveals Boudin’s radical communist background:
Boudin was born in New York City to Jewish parents. His parents, Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, were Weather Underground members.
When Boudin was 14 months old, both were arrested and convicted of murder for their role as getaway car drivers in the Brink’s robbery of 1981 in Rockland County, New York. His mother was sentenced to 20 years to life and his father to 75 years to life for the felony murders of two police officers and a security guard.
After his parents were incarcerated, Boudin was raised in Chicago by adoptive parents Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who, like his parents, had been members of the Weather Underground….
Boudin descends from a long left-wing lineage. His great-grand-uncle, Louis B. Boudin, was a Marxist theoretician and author of a two-volume history of the Supreme Court’s influence on American government, and his grandfather Leonard Boudin was an attorney who represented controversial clients such as Fidel Castro and Paul Robeson.
After 90,000 low-information San Francisco voters put Boudin into office in January 2020, they soon learned of their error. In March 2020, he used the Covid pandemic as an excuse to release from prison hard-core criminals onto the streets, claiming that this would help limit the spread of the virus. What it actually did was increase the rate of violent crime to the point where even Democrats have revolted and are supporting his recall.
Nima Rahimi currently serves as a board member of the California Democratic Party. He wrote a scathing article supporting the recall of his fellow Democrat on Friday:
I am a California Democratic Party Executive Board member, and I support the recall of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin … because I’m sick of Boudin’s disingenuous campaign, and I believe recalling Boudin will save lives … because people have died and will continue to die as a result of his choices and his policies.
We have to hold our own accountable.
Crime jumped, thanks to Boudin’s “choices and policies.” Homicides in the city increased, wrote CBS News, by 16 percent, while larceny theft jumped more than 24 percent during his reign as DA.
The “RecallChesaBoudin” campaign explained:
Since he took office, burglaries, car break-ins, homicides and overdose-related deaths are at a crisis level.
Boudin is not keeping San Francisco safe. He refuses to adequately prosecute criminals and fails to take the drug dealing crisis seriously. He doesn’t hold serial offenders accountable, getting them released from custody, and his response to victims is that “hopefully” home burglaries will go down.
Boudin said he wouldn’t prosecute “victimless” DUI offenses, and he failed to charge a repeat offender who then killed two pedestrians on New Year’s Eve while driving intoxicated in a stolen car.
The recall campaign was highly successful, obtaining 83,000 signatures when only 51,000 were required to put Boudin’s future up to the voters in Tuesday’s recall election. That is almost one in every 10 San Franciscans.
Three recent polls show Boudin losing heavily. And the result is likely to impact a similar recall effort in Los Angeles where DA George Gascon has implemented similar policies, with similar results.
