The political norms are really coming apart here.
Politicians and their people used to wait to steal from voters until they were elected. They also generally stole at the source, rather than going to people’s homes and stealing their packages. But considering Warnock and Ossoff’s radical socialist beliefs, we can just call this early wealth redistribution.
Now just wait until Bill de Blasio is wriggling through your window with a bag of loot in one hand and a sandwich in the other.
Two supporters of Georgia Democratic Senate candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff apparently couldn’t wait until January to redistribute some wealth.
The Augusta Chronicle on Wednesday reported that the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Santina Walker and Cesar Guerrero for allegedly stealing packages from porches of homes in Evans and Grovetown ahead of Christmas.
Walker and Guerrero, each 19 years old, “confessed to taking the packages Tuesday and Wednesday while doing their jobs distributing political fliers,” the newspaper reported.
These fliers support the candidacies of Warnock and Ossoff, although campaign spokespeople were quick to distance themselves from the young political workers.
“These individuals are not associated with or paid by our campaigns and we strongly condemn this criminal activity,” Warnock and Ossoff campaign spokespeople Terrence Clark and Miryam Lipper (respectively) said.
Uh-huh. So they were just handing out fliers for your candidates for free? Or is this a new criminal scam: vote for our candidate or we’ll steal your stuff.
To make matters worse, Guerrero was also charged with felony obstruction for allegedly “punching a deputy multiple times in the head while being taken into custody.”
So he’s a perfect candidate for the next Democrat political cycle.
The Dems already treat criminals like their base. And punching police officers is the equivalent of military service for them nowadays.
But who’s behind these porch pirates? BlackPAC.
The canvassers turned porch pirates were paid by BlackPAC, according to investigators. That’s the same political action committee that brought Grammy award-winning rapper Common to Augusta earlier this month to campaign with Mayor Hardie Davis for Ossoff and Warnock.
Who’s behind BlackPAC? You won’t be hugely surprised to learn to know that it’s as white as curdled cream, speaks with a Hungarian accent and has a Nazi past.
BlackPAC’s financial resources, for one, do not come from an army of small-dollar, “grassroots” donors in the style of a politician such as Bernie Sanders. Instead, its primary bankrollers are a coterie of well-heeled organizations with deep ties to the national Democratic Party, such as the pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC Priorities USA Action.
These groups, in turn, are funded in large part by wealthy, white men. Liberal, “dark money” nonprofit groups that don’t publicly disclose the identities of their own contributors are also among BlackPAC’s bankrollers.
Which leaves some to wonder: Is BlackPAC little more than a convenient rent-a-group for wealthy Democratic interests struggling to connect with black voters in a post-Barack Obama political era?
Come on. You know you’re waiting for it.
BlackPAC was “incubated” by SEIU, Shropshire said. The union continues to play a significant role in the amount of funding that BlackPAC receives. Black Americans do retain relatively strong ties to organized labor: In 2017, black workers, at 12.6 percent, had a higher rate of union membership than white, Hispanic or Asian workers, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
A commonality among these BlackPAC backers is that they’re largely funded by wealthy, white donors.
Senate Majority PAC has, for its part, given BlackPAC $566,240 — money that comes from the fortunes of hedge funder Donald Sussman, billionaire businessman George Soros and Soros’ son, Alexander Soros, among others, according to FEC records.
George Soros. He won’t just rob the nation. His campaigners will also steal your packages. It’s wealth redistribution.
