San Francisco's Marxist district attorney accused of purging the DA's office

Kimberly Guilfoyle is now known as a media personality and as Donald Trump, Jr.'s girlfriend, but few remember that she was a prosecutor in the San Francisco District Attorney's Office for several years in the early 2000s.  After she left the prosecutor's office, she was first lady of San Francisco for two years, during her marriage to then-mayor Gavin Newsom.

When Guilfoyle talks about goings-on in the San Francisco District Attorney's Office, she speaks as an insider, not an outside reporter.  That's why an opinion piece she wrote for the San Francisco Chronicle, warning about the city's new district attorney, Chesa Boudin, needs to be taken seriously.

Most people in America have already been made aware of the fact that Boudin is the son of convicted Marxist murderers and that radical Leftists (and Obama mentors) Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn raised him.  That hard-left upbringing means that Boudin believes in "decarceral justice."

Decarceral justice is the claim that the system criminalizes conduct that flows from poverty, not evil, and that people end up in prison because the system serves only the rich.  In Boudin's case, decarceral justice means announcing that he will not prosecute lifestyle crimes (e.g., public drug use, low-level drug-dealing, soliciting sex, living on the streets, urinating and defecating on the streets).

What people outside San Francisco missed is that, to effect these new policies, Boudin purged the D.A.'s office, getting rid of prosecutors who have the most experience in dealing with homicides, gangs, and felonies:

The institutional knowledge possessed by someone like Ana Gonzalez, who headed the city's gang unit, is irreplaceable. Criminal organizations and their operations are often very complex, especially in a metropolitan area such as San Francisco. Without prosecutors who have a deep understanding of the various syndicates and the players within them, lawful prosecution of crimes becomes tremendously more difficult, allowing real criminals to walk free.

Guilfoyle does not believe that Boudin's actions are simply because, as a D.A .who has never prosecuted a case, he doesn't understand how prosecution works.  Instead, she sees it as part and parcel of the same Marxist approach to law that Bernie Sanders trails in his wake:

These firings weren't based on any incompetency within the department; they were just a transparent effort to cripple the department's prosecutorial ability. Boudin is advancing a radical ideology that's focused on completely redesigning the city's — and the nation's — criminal justice system.

This dangerous reality is also being peddled by a new brand of Bernie Sanders-endorsed Democrats across the country. And, worse yet, the ideology is seemingly inspired by American communist revolutionaries who gained notoriety during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Of course, if this was just this one city's district attorney with a wild, made-for-Netflix story, it probably wouldn't be worth noting. But it's much more than. This is exactly the kind of candidate Bernie Sanders — who has his own checkered past supporting communist dictators abroad — has been championing all over the country.

Since losing the Democratic presidential nomination to Hillary Clinton in 2016, Bernie Sanders has waged a proxy war in Democratic primaries across the nation to nurture his radical agenda. Now Bernie is his own champion on the campaign trail. He is also, arguably, today's frontrunner for the Democratic nomination. That should give every American pause.

Americans who think Bernie Sanders and could never implement the policies of his comrades in California and around the country at the federal level are wrong. They came less than half a percentage point away from victory in Florida and Georgia last cycle.

In Democrat-run cities all over America, ordinary citizens have been guilted into believing that the most humane thing to do is to allow homeless people — most of whom suffer from substance abuse and mental illness — to pursue their bliss, living on the streets.  People in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Sacramento, and New York have seen the cities become squalid and lawless under those policies. 

Now, under the guidance of Chesa Boudin and other Bernie Sanders lackeys, that lawlessness will become a city's open and affirmative policy.  If citizens in leftist-run cities thought their cities were bad before, they are in for a big surprise, for the worst is yet to come.
