Democrats are the party sent to save black people from the “evil, racist Republicans.” It’s the narrative heard from the mainstream media, taught in liberal run schools and constantly hammered home by Democrats.
This oft pushed liberal falsehood is used especially around voting time, when Democrats are unable to formulate an argument, or someone presents facts that show how bad Democrat politicians, and their policies, are for minorities, especially blacks.
In California last month, the far left state argued the merits of, a bill written by Democrat State Senator Bob Hertzberg. This bill which is being sold to the black community as “bail reform,” has become a controversial issue in the Democrat run state.
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson attended the hearing toas to the harm the passage of this bill could inflict upon poor, black neighborhoods. As he, and many others, see it, this bill lets dangerous black criminals out of jail without any ways to ensure those convicts come back for trial.
Peterson, a prominent black clergyman, talk show host and conservative activist, assumed the California public safety board, which is overwhelmingly Democrat, would be happy to hear his input. The party that constantly touts its fight for blacks, should be happy to hear from a black man of faith that is very familiar with the community that would be most affected by this bill.
Yet when Peterson started to speak about the criminal reform bill, the reception was less than inviting, and became outright hostile once the reverend lashed out against the bill, and its author. “Senator (Robert) Hertzberg and the sponsors of this bill hate black people,” said Peterson, who then went on to say, “They hate black women; they hate black children.”
Democrat Chairman of the committee, Assemblyman Reginald Jones-Sawyer, demanded Peterson “stick with the merits of the bill,” but after Peterson continued to strongly criticize the chairman, his mic was cut.
“You, sir, don’t respect black people,” said Peterson, followed by “You don’t live in those communities.” It was then his mic was cut and he was threatened to stay quiet, or be forcibly removed.
While Peterson may have been a bit harsh, he has been mentoring blacks for a years, and has seen the effects of Democrat “help.” The bill itself admits that it’s intent is to let people back onto the streets. The bill states it “would safely reduce the number of people detained pretrial, while addressing racial and economic disparities in the pretrial system, and to ensure that people are not held in pretrial detention simply because of their inability to afford money bail.”
How does letting criminals out and making the penalty for skipping bail address “racial and economic disparities?” Peterson is joined by law enforcement, legal professions, in opposing this poorly thought out bill.
Reported by the Sacramento Bee, SB-10 “faces heavy opposition from commercial bail bond agents, law enforcement officers and prosecutors, who argue that monetary stakes are the most effective way to ensure someone shows up in court after being released. Eliminating bail, they say, would cause considerable harm to the public.”
While some on Peterson’s side accused him of playing the race card, the outspoken advocate does not see it that way. Poor communities rarely have someone from the community, fighting for them, without looking for something in return, so in his eyes, he is making sure the people most at risk have someone looking out for them, for once.
“Some lobbyists and bail-bonds people also opposed to the bill were upset with me. They thought I ‘pulled the race card‘ and called the senator ‘racist,’” Peterson says. “But I didn’t. I said he hates black people — blacks are the ones most victimized by crime.”
Since conservatives and the Republican party have not proven capable of fighting back against the “conservatives are racist” narrative, so Peterson feels he must be the lone voice to take on yet another bad Democrat idea that would, once again, hurt the black community.
Peterson commented on this when he said, “Unfortunately, Republicans, whites and too many good” people are afraid to call Democrats out on their lies and hit them hard with the truth. Democrats lie about blacks being hurt by ‘racism.’ Why not tell the truth about blacks being hurt by Democrats?”
sB-10 bill would be yet another Democrat bill passed to “help” blacks that ends up hurting blacks.
Many Democrat run cities are ground zero for drugs, crime and violence, yet they never pay a political price. Liberal ideas have never improved communities, but made them less safe, created generational poverty and lowered expectations, leading to lower effort.
Democrats would NEVER lower the bail of white criminals so they could be released back into their neighborhoods to prey on their kids, their homes and make their neighborhoods less safe. So why are Democrats so adamant about passing SB-10, which puts criminals back into already high crime communities. Let’s make Democrats live under the laws they love to pass.
