The Democrats have become so desperate to stay afloat that they’ve now begun spinning the news stories in their favor, claiming crime rates in the US being on the rise is a result of Republican policies.
However, if you look at the data, you’ll find the Democrats’ pro-crime policies are the actual culprit; although it doesn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.
Democrats once again showing they’re the real problem this country’s dealing with
The man who once stated the internet would be about as impactful as a fax machine, Paul Krugman, was one of the deluded Democrats pushing these claims.
He ended up skewing the numbers out of proportion when saying Oklahoma’s murder rate is nearly 50% higher than that of California.
Biden and the Democrats are the ones guilty of crimes against the United States of America!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

However, Krugman, who’d once been awarded a Nobel Prize for some unknown reason, failed to factor in the majority of these murders in Oklahoma were from Oklahoma City and Tulsa. The counties here are run by Joy Hofmeister, a Democrat.
In fact, Oklahoma City and Tulsa are two of 62 counties accounting for 56% of the murders that happened in 2020, which is only 1% of all counties in the US.
If you look at the counties on this list, you’ll see the majority of them are Democratic strongholds like New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, and many, many others.
The numbers don’t lie
By looking at things from this perspective, it’s easy to see we’re not dealing with a crime problem, but rather, a Democrat problem that’s closely tied to their policies on crime.
If 42% of All Murders Happen in 1% of Democrat-Controlled Counties…
Do we need Gun-Control laws?
Or do we need Democrat-Control laws?

This really puts into perspective that the US is much less violent of a country than the media writes it up to be. It goes to show that gun culture has little to no impact on the crime rates, seeing as it’s the Democrat-run counties driving up the murder rates.
Democrat policies have created a massive social stigma around gun policies that wouldn’t have even existed otherwise. If we were to remove these counties from the mix, the murder rate would have been only 4.31 per 100,000 back in 2020.
Foreign policy disasters.
What are Democrats focused on? Indicting President Trump.

It’s crystal clear that America isn’t the dangerous, crime-riddled country that foreign media constantly describes it as. It’s usually the Democratic cities ruining our image with their pro-crime policies and politicians.This article appeared in The Record Daily and has been published here with permission.
