￼ rumors that violent crime and homicide have spiked in Minneapolis and St. Paul in the last year are…
… Well, pretty much a political football.￼
Mayor McDreamy responded with a bit of cheap theatrics, lavishly staged for the eager cameras of the Twin Cities TV stations, as was thoroughly predictable.￼. I’m not going to plug his little tantrum here – read the link to article, in the “Minnesota Reformer”, which is to the 2020 is what the “Minnesota Monitor” was to the 2000s.￼
So – if you don’t live in Minneapolis or St. Paul, you have no business talking about policy for either city.
Naturally, that isn’t going to be applied to people from the metro area imposing land-use, mining and gun control policies on the rest of the state. That’s just crazy talk.
When they left makes good on its goal of getting rid of the electoral college, they won’t even have to bother insulting people from outside the urban core.￼
So – when the subject is urban crime, the cities are safe Dash but when the subject is law abiding citizens with guns, then the streets are running red with blood?
The problem, of course, is that the Democrat base can’t be bothered with , and most cases has never learned, the sort of critical thinking that would allow them to read this sort of twaddle and think “who do these people think we are? Idiots?”￼
