Democrat Congressman Suddenly Upset After San Jose Mayor’s House Was Vandalized

We’ve seen this again and again: the violence from the BLM/Antifa mob is pretty much OK as long as they don’t cause problems at the homes of the Democrat political masters

Dem. congressman condemns ‘vigilante justice’ as protesters vandalize San Jose mayor’s home

Protesters vandalized the home of San Jose’s mayor Friday in a demonstration against the Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake.

They marched to the mayor’s home, then ran off after spraypainting the house. Mayor Sam Liccardo and a number of neighbors scrubbed the graffiti off later Friday.

Around 150 protesters marched near San Jose City Hall in a Black Lives Matter demonstration earlier in the day, calling to defund the San Jose Police, according to the San Jose Spotlight. By nightfall, a smaller group of 30 or 40 protesters had veered off to march toward Liccardo’s home. (snip)

“I’m tremendously heartened by the response of dozens of my neighbors who dropped everything late last night to spend a couple of hours scrubbing graffiti from Jessica’s and my home,” he said. “Many of these same neighbors’ homes bear “Black Lives Matter” signs, and they represent the true spirit of the movement, and of our San Jose community. They contrast sharply with the roughly hundred so-called ‘protesters’ who stood by silently — or even cheered — as a flag was burned and while ‘f*ck you’ and other messages were scrawled on our home.”

Man, if only there was some sort of group which could stop this kind of criminal activity. Interestingly, Liccardo can barely find it in himself to publically slam the B/A folks for this. But…

Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna, who represents the San Jose area, condemned vandalism of the mayor’s house as “morally outrageous” in an interview with Fox News.

He called on every elected official to speak out against violence, destruction and looting, which he said undermines the police reform cause.

“There is absolutely no justification for the vandalism that took place at the mayor’s personal residence. This is not the first instance.  His house, his property has been targeted in the past. ” Khanna said.

“We resolve issues of dispute through political means, through elections, through dialogue, through peaceful protest. We do not resort to violence and that applies equally to vigilantes. We’re not a nation that tolerates vigilante justice,” the congressman continued.

He’s not wrong. I’ve been saying the same thing since the violence continued after the first few days in Minneapolis then spread around the country in Democratic Party run cities: the violence does undermine even discussing police reform. Is there any being done? All we usually hear is about defunding the police. Who does that help? The structural issues that can lead to bad behavior is still there.

But, notice that Ro only seems to care when it was the mayor’s house that was vandalized. Not when the B/A mob was causing problems for store owners and regular old citizens. I do wonder if he is now on the hit-list for the B/A mob?

Anyway, Liccardo is wrong: the vandalism does 100% represent the BLM movement, as backed by the Antifa nutters and all sorts of young, white college kids playing at being revolutionaries: violence and threats to attempt to get what they want, which is mostly free money and Marxism.

    Lesson for Mayor Sam Liccardo: as you sow, so shall ye reap!

    Around 150 protesters marched near San Jose City Hall in a Black Lives Matter demonstration earlier in the day, calling to defund the San Jose Police, according to the San Jose Spotlight. By nightfall, a smaller group of 30 or 40 protesters had veered off to march toward Liccardo’s home.

    So, 30 to 40 out of 150: that works out to a fifth to more than a quarter of the ‘mostly peaceful protesters’ are not peaceful, but simply thugs and vandals.

    I’ve said it before: the liberals who are encouraging the mob will be surprised when they are among the first lined up against the wall.

    Note that the stupid “Black Lives Matter” sign in the window proved to be no defense against the thugs and the vandals. The slightly more respectable left believe that the mob will have at least some reasonableness to it, but common sense and restraint are not characteristics of mobs. The distinguished Elwood P Dowd had better hope that the “Black Lives Matter” mostly peaceful protesters don’t decide to protest in his neighborhood, because all of his ravings and the “Black Lives Matter” signs he has festooned on his house will not keep them from burning it to the ground.

    Here’s hoping that Mr Dowd has his insurance already paid in full.
