  1. I think for many if you are not “woke” by now it’s not likely to ever happen. I am liberal and never cared for the phrase woke, but I liked a number of the areas it examines. At this point I hear woke more as a Republican bashing point than in a positive light. Continue it’s principals, but avoid trying to wake those who hate woke, it just seems to piss them off and further alienates.

  2. As soon as the term ‘woke’ actually became a thing.

    I think that’s the moment the world officially ended.

    1. @Yonggary 1999 is a masterpiece Why does being politically correct sucks? You are still complaining about something that started in the 90’s. In fact the concept that has happened with every cultural shift in history.

  3. To me, this recall comes down to nothing more than Boudin being a poor Politician. Trying to institute policies that made him look soft on crime in the middle of a wave of rising crime was foolish and politically naive.

  4. Yeah, DA’s usually suck and have WAAAAAAAYYYY too much power in general.
    There is a balance to be had in that position, he seems to have failed on multiple counts. Should be recalled and replaced. 🤷‍♂

    1. I honestly have no idea why such a position is an elected one to begin with. You’d expect a prosecutorial office to operate according to the law, professional standards and a uniform code.

  6. As a San Franciscan, you are correct – the recall was about frustration with the lack of prosecutions and the obvious decline in quality of life issues. While I agree with many of Mr. Boudin’s stated policies, such as diversion programs, I cannot support allowing repeat offenders to not have any motivation to change their conduct. Now hopefully law enforcement in SF will be motivated to do their jobs which is the other part of the equation.

  7. Guns keep our citizens safe,Guns keep the president safe, guns keep celebrities safe, guns keep our money safe I guess our children aren’t worth using guns to keep them safe.

  8. What you actually see here is moderation of authority, meaning that the people didn’t feel obligated to agree with their leaders…

  9. Wokeism—that’s a real stretch. The actual explanation is much simpler. As The Arrow would put it:
    “Boudin, you have failed this city.”

    1. @Iffat Husna Pretty good. My meeting with the shrink today went very well. He said that if I mind my p’s and q’s I should be out of the institution in 3 or 4 years.

  10. You hit it on the nose S E Cupp! We are a very liberal democratic city. We want him replaced by another democrat. The fact of the matter is crime has gotten worse than ever under his watch, and we feel he isn’t doing his job. He knew this was coming for like a year, so he could have made some changes, but chose not to. I am a liberal democrat that has lived here for over twenty years. While the city has always had issues, Boudin has allowed things to spiral out of control in our beautiful San Francisco. We want change, and fast! He can say it was Republican driven, but that simply isn’t true, he has blown his chance and our trust.

    1. @Tobester McDonkey I’m sorry, do you live in San Francisco? If not, don’t pretend that you understand the complexities of this city…

  11. The U.S does few things well these days.. locking people up is one of them. The U.S has 6x’s the incarceration rate of other developed nations with MUCH longer average prison sentences. Why? Perhaps because few other developed countries have the industrial prison complex. Dirt cheap prison labor is a MULTI- billion dollar business in the U.S.

  12. you know what , Sarah , we need to lighten up and at the same time be responsible of what we say , keep our sense of humor , don’t take ourselves too seriously and see more the irony and funny sides of life and sprinkled it with grace and wit , wokeism threaten Bill Maher , George Carlin types of peoples’ livelihoods

  13. The replacement of education by instruction is a serious matter. It naturally goes hand in hand with the abandonment of any real interest in students or their maturation which in turn is the inevitable result of the mass production techniques which are now being forced. Instruction is a practical enterprise in which a set skill, or a standard quota of information is imparted for a purpose. The point of instruction is to suit the subject to a task. Thus soldiers are instructed in the use of weapons, and trainee policemen are instructed in their duties. Instruction is standardized, uncritical, undialectical, and it discourages speculation about ends and means alike. Some university courses seem to be almost pure instruction. The student is there to absorb this material. He contributes nothing and his intellect remains unequaled. The teachings of some psychologists have aggravated this state of affairs.

  14. Fed-up San Francisco voters ousted their radical district attorney on Tuesday in a recall election that rejected his soft-on-crime policies following surges in shameless shoplifting, car break-ins and rampant, open-air drug dealing.The recall effort against Chesa Boudin, a former public defender and the son of convicted Weather Underground terrorists, was supported by 61% of voters in early returns, according to NBC.
    Boudin is the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, who served as getaway drivers for the infamous 1981 robbery of a Brink’s armored car in Rockland County, during which two cops — Nyack, NY police Sgt. Edward O’Grady and Officer Waverly “Chipper” Jones — and Brink’s guard Peter Paige were murdered.
    Gilbert was paroled in October after former NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo made him eligible during one of his final acts in office after announcing he was quitting over a sex-harassment scandal.
    After his parents were incarcerated, Boudin was raised in Chicago by adoptive parents Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who, like his parents, had been members of the Weather Underground a domestic terrorist organization.
    The latest official police statistics show that overall crime in the city is up nearly 8 percent this year, with a 20 percent surge in larcenies, as well as spikes in homicides, rapes and assaults.
    Offenses against Asian-Americans also proliferated amid the pandemic, with lifelong resident Henry Wong, 74, who worked for the late comedian Robbin Williams saying that people “spit on me on elevators, on the streets” and calling Boudin “the worst district attorney the city has ever had.”
    Viral videos have revealed shoplifters running rampant during smash-and-grab thefts at high-end stores.
    The ultra- progressive San Francisco ( 86% voted for Biden), population 815,000, soon soured on Boudin’s vision of “radical change to how we envision justice,” which included not seeking cash bail, not prosecuting juveniles as adults and not seeking tougher sentences under California’s anti-gang or “three strikes” laws.

    I can’t imagine voting for this POS in the first place.
    Democrats are DUMB as FU_K !
