Are We Redefining ‘Failure’ Now, Too? Soros Pledges to Continue Backing Woke DAs.

Billionaire philanthropist and liberal megadonor George Soros wants you to know he’s not backing down on this whole hyper-woke, progressive District Attorney push. In fact, despite crime skyrocketing in most major American cities, Soros says we’re on the right track.

Soros defended his position in a Wall Street Journal op-ed this week.

“I have supported the election (and more recently the re-election) of prosecutors who support reform. I have done it transparently, and I have no intention of stopping,” Soros wrote, to the chagrin of every American who has read a violent headline on a front page in the past year.

“Our system is rife with injustices that make us all less safe. The idea that we need to choose between justice and safety is false,” Soros continued. “Some politicians and pundits have tried to blame recent spikes in crime on the policies of reform-minded prosecutors. The research I’ve seen says otherwise,” Soros insisted.

And which research would that be, I wonder. Soros mentions “a rigorous academic study analyzing data across 35 jurisdictions.” That’s funny, considering there are more than 90 district attorneys in the U.S. and 18,000 federal, state, local and city departments —all with their own set of rules. Is one study that analyzes 35 jurisdictions enough?

And how does Soros feel about San Francisco overwhelmingly rejecting Chesa Boudin? Someone needs to tell Mr. Soros that, and this is just spitballing, here —people don’t like soft-on-crime DAs because they put dangerous criminals right back on the street in favor of buzzword policing: a more equitable society! You know, like one that let’s teenagers strangle police officers and then go free without bail.

Who thinks this is a good idea?

Here are the stats we’re looking at, Mr. Soros —as presented by The New York Post:

Recently-deposed Chesa Boudin of San Francisco: violent crimes: up 4%, year to date; property crimes: up 8.2%, year to date; total crime rate: up 7.8%, year to date.

Alvin Bragg, Manhattan: major crime rate: up 43.2%, year to date.

George Gascón, Los Angeles: violent crimes: up 7.7%, year to date; property crimes: up 13.3%, year to date; total crime rate: up 11.9%, year to date.

Kim Foxx, Chicago: major crime rate: up 34%, year to date.

Larry Krasner, Philadelphia: violent crimes: up 6.3%, year to date; property crimes: up 27.1%, year to date; total crime rate: up 22.2%, year to date.

Kevin Hayden, Boston: violent crimes: up 4.4%, year to date; property crimes: up 4.8%, year to date; total crime rate: up 4.7%, year to date.

Not to mention a recent Gallup poll that says 8 in 10 Americans worry about crime —the highest in 6 years.

I’d like to get a good look at that special brand of Soros “research.”
