Leftist extremist Rosie Castro, a civil rights activist and the mother of former San Antonio mayor Julián Castro and current Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro, has declared her interest in being appointed by the San Antonio City Council to the seat in District 7 being vacated by Ana Sandoval. If Castro is appointed, the City Council and city government would be moved further to left in their actions and policies.
President Joe Biden used Martin Luther King Day to vilify police officers when he spoke at Reverend Al Sharpton’s radical, anti-police National Action Network. He called for more police reforms and accountability which translates into limiting or even punishing police for doing their job. It appears he is signaling a new round for the anti-police movement while completely ignoring the crime and violence the nation is experiencing.
Crime and violence impact all parts of society and the community, and liberal, soft-on-crime policies excuse, tolerate, and encourage more crime and worse crime. The citizens of San Antonio need to understand this connection and act to address it. Here are some examples.
If there is anything the Fake News and leftists/liberals hate, it is questioning or investigating election results. Liberal National Public Radio, a taxpayer-funded news service, has reported how Texas state leaders have “mandated” an open investigation into Harris County (Houston) 2022 elections.
Republicans in Houston and Harris County are accusing county officials of “election improprieties” that resulted in delayed polling site openings, paper ballot shortages, and staffing issues on Election Day, among other things.
Crime and violence keep rising in San Antonio, and still, liberals and leftists keep attacking the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) to dismantle it, demoralize the officers, and harm public safety. There is a new city charter amendment proposed designed to limit police activities, and a law enforcement task force that could benefit public safety, but in which SAPD does not participate.
On June 10, 2020, San Antonio’s version of “Black Live Matter” called then “Fix SAPD” vowed to dismantle the San Antonio Police Officers Association, to force their control over police officers including the hiring, promotion, discipline, and firing of officers. The anti-police radicals do not want justice, they want revenge and power so they can enforce laws.
