Conservatives have been warning for decades that liberal policies will end in damage, destruction, and death for the majority of people in the United States. No, it won’t happen all at once. We’ll likely be like that proverbial frog in a pan of water being heated slowly until we’re paralyzed and can’t jump back out.
No area of the United States demonstrates that more epically than the state of California with its progressive ideals, Hollywood elites, and tent cities of homeless. It’s become a literal open sewer in some places, with regular residents being accosted in the streets because homelessness hasn’t been dealt with.
Before someone’s bleeding heart goes overboard, it’s worth mentioning that no one is of the impression that homelessness will be cured. Much like suicide, however, if it’s illegal to sleep in the streets, authorities can intervene, push people toward shelters, etc. However, if given the option of staying clean, going to bed at a certain time and working to find a job while staying at a shelter, or sleeping in a tent, shooting up whenever they want and standing in line at a soup kitchen for food, so many find that their addiction lives better in the streets. So they persist.
The iconically liberal policies came home to roost, however, when 80-year-old former U.S. senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted on Monday in broad daylight. According to The Independent Journal Review the Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer was not seriously injured in the incident, which took place in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland.

“Earlier today former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland,” a tweet from the former senator’s office stated. “The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone, and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured.”
According to police, the assault took place a little after 1 p.m. local time and the Oakland Police Department told CNN that the individual “forcefully took” Boxer’s cell phone and then fled.
The incident was also recounted by Verizon employee Joseph Hauken who saw Boxer directly after she was assaulted because she went to his store. Boxer had reportedly just bought her iPhone two days earlier and she was looking to replace it after the attack.
“I just knew that she was shaking, very scared, traumatized. Just in distress, emotional distress. So I just was here to help her, get her water, whatever she needed,” he said.
Boxer was reportedly stunned, understandably, after the two males took her phone and fled the scene. She told KPIX “I’m really saddened by this experience because here is a grandma alone, on her phone, and two young people attacked. “I’m not hurt physically at all. I’m just shook up.”
According to the former senator one of the teens was likely under the age of 18:
“Well, he pushed me very hard,” she said. “It’s hard for me to describe what happened because it was so fast, but, when I started to move away from him, he came behind me, pushed me hard, and then before I could fall it was like he grabbed my phone in front, so it’s just hard to put all together.”
Boxer said she yelled at her attacker, “Why would you do this to a grandma?”
She went on to say to her attacker, “I want to call my grandkids, why are you doing this?” Boxer said that the assailant “could care less. He got in the car. But I hope he has some guilt.”
The question is, does Boxer have any guilt. Does she find issue with policies that broke down families, offered support for removing any and all moral guidance, took a sledgehammer to everything that fosters conscience, and yes, guilt? Or does she stand by her socialist ideals?
Remember kids, you can vote socialism in, you just can’t vote it back out again.
