Progressive San Francisco has become so diseased by the fentanyl crisis that Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom has directed the state’s National Guard and highway patrol to come to the city’s assistance.


“We’re taking action,” Newsom said Friday. “Through this new collaborative partnership, we are providing more law enforcement resources and personnel to crack down on crime linked to the fentanyl crisis, holding the poison peddlers accountable, and increasing law enforcement presence to improve public safety and public confidence in San Francisco.”

An example, once again, of how Democratic leadership is backtracking its anti-police rhetoric. But is it too late and can their damage be undone? Just The News reports “San Francisco had the second-highest overdose rate in the United States in 2021, has seen a more than 40% leap in overdose deaths from January through March 2023 alone, the governor’s office stated. Many of the overdose deaths were caused by the deadly synthetic opioid fentanyl.”

Newsom not also asked for the support in order to identify the deadly fentanyl sources, but also aid in analysis of trafficking operations, and specifically focus on disrupting trafficking rings.

Newsom took the opportunity to make an attempt at deflecting blame and trying to bring in other cities which are specifically led by Republican leadership:

“Two truths can co-exist at the same time: San Francisco’s violent crime rate is below comparably sized cities like Jacksonville and Fort Worth — and there is also more we must do to address public safety concerns, especially the fentanyl crisis.”

Just The News writes:

Notably, Fort Worth’s violent crime rate is virtually the same as San Francisco’s and Jacksonville’s is slightly higher, but the California city’s property crime rate is nearly twice that of the GOP-run cities, making San Francisco rank as having far more crime than the other two cities, according to Neighborhood Scout.
