Democrats have taken this nation to the brink of destruction by treating police like the enemy while coddling criminals. Across America, leftists in power also defunded local police departments and opened up jails.
Removing cash bail is another bad decision made by the Democrat Party in the name of criminal justice reform. Now, Americans are paying the price as crime rates skyrocket.
The nation’s crime crisis is so out of control that some businesses are closing their doors and refusing to subject their employees to working in certain communities. Now, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is weighing in on just how dangerous America’s current crime crisis could become.
The End of America as We Know It?
During a radio show interview, Gingrich stated the crime rates in major cities like Atlanta, New York, and Chicago demand very real changes. He then warned without a robust police force and district attorneys who are willing to uphold the law, the collapse of civilization will occur.
Gingrich said this fact is beginning to dawn on people. Within the past several months, Americans have seen left-wing district attorneys in Democratic strongholds like Manhattan and Philadelphia come under fire for high crime rates.

Later during the interview, the former House Speaker said district attorneys who won’t uphold the law have criminals as their biggest fans.
After noting criminals are motivated to vote for district attorneys who take a permissive stance towards lawlessness, he said the nation must be vigilant about the rise of organized crime often happening via “gray economies.”
A Long Way to Go
Many people across the country are waking up to the danger of being soft on crime. Though the country isn’t out of the woods just yet.
There are sitting congressmembers and congressional candidates who see no issues with defunding the police and even letting murderers out of prison. Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman has expressly endorsed the latter.
Even amid a violent crime wave, extremist Democrats like John Fetterman in PA and Mandela Barnes in WI want to empty our prisons and release violent criminals back into our communities.

Meanwhile, elected officeholders who support defunding the police, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D), aren’t rushing to defund their own private security details.
In fact, as everyday Americans struggle to make it to work safely, Democratic elites are paying hundreds of thousands of dollars per year just to have armed protection at their beck and call.
