Since Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives and gained some new members with far-left policy stances, like abolishing all prisons in the U.S.

Despite Republicans underperforming in the midterms, Democrats still lost control of the lower house of Congress, setting up a GOP-controlled chamber.

There are now two Democrats within the incoming first-year class who have voiced support for abolishing prisons.

Progressive Democrat Rep.-elect Summer Lee, D- Penn is taking over the district of longtime Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle in Washington.

Lee is a Democratic socialist backed by Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

Lee has openly endorsed several socialist policies, including controversial progressive policies like abolishing prisons and including the redistribution of wealth.

“Instead of ‘thanking’ Black women, Black voters, and especially, Black organizers… give us the investments we need and deserve, redistribute wealth, ends police violence, abolish the carceral state, commit to building Black directed political power… and reparations,” Lee tweeted in November 2020.

Florida gained a young, progressive congressman in the form of Rep.-elect Maxwell Frost, who endorsed the anti-police and anti-prison group Dream Defenders in 2020.

Frost’s endorsement of Dream Defenders included a call “for a prison [and] police-free society.” He also endorsed other far-left groups, including the radical environmental group the Sunrise Movement.

Frost was endorsed by both Sanders and Warren, as well as several other progressive groups and lawmakers.

As Fox News reported:

The Democrats have seen an uptick in progressive and socialist membership as the party continues to lurch leftward, even in conservative states.

Texas will see a progressive Democrat headed to Washington next Congress, with Rep.-elect Greg Casar — a self-described democratic socialist who was endorsed by the “Squad” leader herself — taking a seat to represent parts of Austin and San Antonio.

The progressive gains will serve Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Squad” members well, giving them more leverage in getting their priorities at the front of the party.

This is how NYC became a prison in the movie “Escape from NY”, they simply just walled in the entire thing and nobody could claim it was a prison.

I think they should put a giant wall around NYC and send all criminals into the city to fend for themselves. I think they made a movie like this.

So, no police and no prisons? What do we do about murderers? Bank robbers? Rapists? Eliminate all traffic laws? Just tell them to “go and sin no more”? Astoundingly stupid people.
