California Gov. Gavin Newsom Apologizes for Calling Gangs …. “Gangs”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Apologizes for Calling Gangs …. “Gangs”

Gavin the Clueless strikes again!

On Saturday, I noted that while attending a clean-up at a ravaged Los Angeles rail depot, Governor Gavin Newsom exclaimed: ‘It looked like a third world country, these images, the drone images that were on the nightly news. ”

Not 24 hours passed before Newsom walked back part of his unusually insightful assessment of the Progressive Thunderdome that Los Angeles has become.

California Governor Gavin Newsom apologized for calling a group of cargo train thieves ‘gangs of people’ and, fearing the term was offensive, clarified that the criminals were actually ‘organized groups’ of people traveling from place to place.

‘This is not one-off. This is organized theft. These are organized gangs of people that are coming out,’ Newsom said during a Los Angeles news conference Thursday, before clarifying: ‘Forgive me for saying “gangs” – that’s not a pejorative.

‘They’re organized groups of folks that move from site to site.’

The woke Democrat also likened the site of the freight train package thefts to a shanty town exclaiming: ‘It looked like a Third World country, these images, the drone images that were on the nightly news.

‘I took off the suit and tie and said I’m coming because I couldn’t take it,’ he added. ‘I can’t turn on the news anymore. What the hell is going on?’

It appears that the pillaging of the trains escalated when the state was experiencing a spate of “smash and grab” robberies of luxury goods.

State officials and the Department of Transportation say they are acting now after weeks of trains’ cargo containers being raided in Los Angeles during station stops. The thieves grab the contents of packages and throw the empty boxes and envelopes onto the tracks causing a mountainous pileup of debris.

“A lot of this stuff ends up on platforms you shop on,” Mr. Newsom said Thursday. “I promise you, all of you — some of you have bought some of this stuff that was not in those boxes because they ended up on some online platform at a remarkably discounted price.”

He said more than $2 million in items have been recovered so far.

As a reminder to Newsom, here is the definition of gang.

Other terms Newsom could justifiably use include:

  • Pillagers
  • Marauder
  • Raiders
  • Brigands
  • Plunderers
  • And the new, gender non-specific term, highwayperson.

Meanwhile, polling shows that more than half of Californians wanted to refugee to another state, including almost two-thirds of millennials.

According to the California Policy Lab, which is affiliated with the University of California, the number of people leaving the state is up 12 percent since before COVID-19.

In fact, there are more people heading out than coming in.

Even before the pandemic, a survey from Edelman Intelligence found that more than half of residents in California said they wanted to high-tail it to another state. Among millennial residents, it was almost two-thirds.

Chalk it up to cost of living — the 13.3 percent max income tax rate is the country’s highest — as well as safety and other quality of life issues. And then there are the housing prices: Per Zillow, the median home value in San Francisco is almost $1.4 million. (No wonder “Should I move out?” has topped the Google search rankings there.)

My husband and I are now beginning to formulate retirement plans. Moving out of California is at the top of the list.

See, he isn’t as shocked as he claimed, at least not shocked enough not to offend anyone, even if it’s the criminals.

Sooo, we can no longer properly refer to a group of raccoons as a “gang of raccoons?” How about gang-related drive-bys, gangsters, police gang task forces and gangland-style executions?

If gavin’s “organized groups of people, moving from site to site” can now be equated and treated as criminals in need of immediate apprehension, then please arrest all “educators” taking kids on field trips, all sports teams at away games, all convention-goers and organizers, all lefty “marchers” (sorry…looters, arsonists), hiking clubs, bar crawlers and, last but not least, all members of sycophantic, lefty press pools. Oops, I forgot to mention all of the newly defined criminals booking cruises.

Apparently, according to gavin, gangs are filled with plain, ordinary, peaceful, law-abiding, work-a-day good citizens and should never be referred to in any way he thinks will demean their character or behavior. What an IDIOT!

    No, he’s not an idiot. That would give him an excuse.

    He’s a corrupt POS, who is as incompetent to lead as that other CA weirdo, Kamala Harris. God knows who Newsom allowed to bugger him to get where he is.

‘I took off the suit and tie and said I’m coming because I couldn’t take it,’ he added. ‘I can’t turn on the news anymore. What the hell is going on?’

The Emperor sheds his own clothes, LOL!

From now on, they will be referred to as “social clubs.”

“I would just like to say that social organizations such as crips & bloods do a lot of fine work in our golden state.”

By “gangs” he means “other gangs,” as in “dammit, other gangs as getting all the loot.”

Coincidentally, did you note that he’s setting up his excuse to more tightly regulate internet commerce?

So Newsom is a clown. But not a funny clown, a sad one.

They’re just “folks”.

“Nice guys but…..”

“Mostly peaceful and honest folks… who take things that aren’t theirs and break stuff.”

So, Sam Cook’s body could be rolling over to:

“Well don’t you know

That’s the sound of the men

Working on the chain … organized group of folks.

That’s the sound of the men

Working on the chain … organized group of folks.”

Who cares if it’s a bit choppy. It still rhymes.

The biggest gang in the nation is the Democratic Party.

To be honest most of the criminal gangs, of whatever ethnicity, are merely the Democrat Party’s Sturmabteilungen. The different gangs are simply unit designations akin to the NSDAP’s Standarten.

It is what it is.

Newsom is a great demonstration of how Democrats react to crime but fail to realize that it is all caused by the breakdown of law and order. which is their fault by virtue of their policies and views on criminal justice

We should let these “organised groups of people moving from place to place” that Governor Newsom has some really good stuff at his mansion. Help yourselves. He won’t mind.

“more than half of Californians wanted to refugee to another state,”

Oh, gawd, are we verbing again?

I’m so old, I remember when party was a noun and ask was a verb.

Gavin Newsom wants to express his deep concern for this serious problem, but first, he needs to quibble about woke semantics, an even greater threat to, er, something. God help me, I live in this sad place.
