Conservative political commentator Dinesh D'Souza joined Laura Ingraham on Fox News Tuesday night and slammed Democrat policies that have lead to increases in crimes throughout major US cities.
He took the Biden administration to task over their current push for gun control in relation to an increase in gun violence throughout the US, Ingraham asked D'Souza, "Why does the left not seem to care about the loss of so many lives in the inner city?"
"Democrats weirdly enough go after the two main deterrents to crime, defund the police and restrict the police," D'Souza said. "Limit them in all kinds of ways and then take away the guns of law abiding citizens."
"The left is pursuing behavior and policies that are just manifestly irrational." D’Souza said. "Because the two biggest deterrents to crime are number one, a kind of vigorous police force, which is a deterrent because they're going to get you. And the second deterrent is a law abiding citizen."
The best-selling author and filmmaker mocked Democrat lawmakers for being shocked when their outlandish policies lead to increases in crime. "Then they're like, wow, we can't believe that crime rates are going up. So they're attacking the very remedies of crime and then fanning astonishment when they get the predictable results of their own policies," D'Souza argued to Ingraham.
The Ingraham Angle host asked Dinesh a pressing question; she wondered what message it would send to criminals if far-left District Attorney's were removed from office.
"The problem is that you have a situation that I, as far as I know, is unprecedented in this country," D'Souza replied. "Criminals can't pose the threat on their own. There has to be a very powerful criminals lobby. And so these left-wing DA's who are supposed to be the good guys, that's supposed to be going after the criminals, they are sort of in league with the criminals. They're the enablers of the criminals. Then you have the media, which is pursuing its own ideological agenda."
"You have a criminals lobby, it's called the democratic party, and it is making it easy for criminals in America, in a way that, as I say is unprecedented, I think in the country's history," D'Souza said calling out Democrat party for their failed policies.
"That's why we're seeing this kind of festering epidemic of crime," D'Souza added. "It is not caused just by the criminals. It's caused by the society making it easier for the criminals."
