Even left-leaning Americans are becoming fed up with blue-city policies.
In a recently posted video, residents of Oakland, California, have finally stood up to city officials for doing nothing about the rise in crime.
One woman, who is the owner of an Oakland martial arts studio, told city officials that a “mentally deranged” man has been living ten feet from the door of her business.
According to the woman, he has threatened her and others as well as defecated on her property.
“I don’t want to have to get threatened with sexual violence. I don’t want my children to see this as a normal behavior from an individual on the street,” the woman said.
“He’s been naked, he’s masturbated in front of them, he’s urinated in front of them,” she continued before explaining that the police have told her they can do nothing.
Glenn Beck watches the clip and is disturbed.
“Why are you paying taxes?” Beck asks.
Another Oakland resident stood up to tell city officials that the “hundreds of gunpoint robberies” that are happening mostly to women are making it increasingly hard to survive.
They add that it’s “systemic violence.”
“So, let’s talk about defunding the police,” Beck responds, “and saying that the homeless you know can live anywhere they want and all of this. How’s that working out for you?”
Beck believes that far-left policies have created a nation of people living in fear.
“How many people in this country now are living in fear that weren’t living in fear 10 years ago? How many people who own a business in a town live in fear of what the police won’t or will do?”
