An Illinois state senator who sponsored recently-signed legislation that will eliminate cash bail in the state by 2023 is outraged that a man who allegedly flashed a gun at him while driving only had to post $1,500 to get out of jail.
The left intentionally enacts policies that are destructive to their core constituency, fully expecting that constituency to become more and more dependent upon big daddy government to keep them housed and fed and safe, but then are “outraged” on the rare occasion when the destructive policies they espouse actually affect them personally.
That’s not the way it works. Their policies are only for the little people, not for them.
That’s how the left works. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” means that the senior party officials “need” their three vacation homes and their yachts and their limousines and their personal jets, but everyone else only needs a loaf of bread a week, an apartment in a tenement building and unlimited access to propaganda.tv.
It’s good to be the King*
And they’re outraged when their destructive policies actually affect their exalted way of life.
