Crime in Washington, DC has made the city akin to San Francisco: Chris Bedford

Washington, DC has become akin to San Francisco, said federalist senior editor Chris Bedford on “Tucker Carlson Today,” noting that he and many others sought to leave the country’s capital.

“There are shops you do not want to go into. There are restaurants you do not want to go into,” he said. “I have friends who have moved out of town because of this.”

Bedford noted that this wave of crime is not happening in the affluent neighborhoods where DC’s elite live, but rather in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods.

Neighborhoods are “deteriorating,” he said, but “of course not where the mayor lives.”

“Not, of course, where the city council lives, but in many areas it is deteriorating,” Bedford continues.

Bedford blamed the city’s Democratic leaders’ policies for the rise in crime.

“A city council that refuses to give the money to hire police at all while police numbers fall because they want to strangle them because they think they are unfair,” Bedford said.

“It turns out that there is not much that keeps the city from being ruled by the barbarians.”

Bedford said some elites in DC are starting to wake up to the rise in crime because it is happening near them.

“Now in the city, people are starting to worry,” he said. “Because it happens in National Park.”

“Many people are waking up. Many apolitical people are waking up.”

Politicians, however, have not changed their stripes, Bedford said.

“A lot of apolitical people are waking up. But the political people in general have doubled,” he said.

“Do not come to Washington, DC. It’s like San Francisco.”
