MEGHAN MCCAIN: People don’t want to live in a city where even the Christmas trees need bodyguards

Violence is not violence, but speech is violence.

Pay no attention to anything you may have seen, read, or heard about rising crime rates, violence, theft, car thefts, and looting in many major US cities, you’ll be fine.

In fact, it’s so good that in some parts of America it’s not a crime to steal up to $1,000 worth of merchandise because hey, stealing products and goods doesn’t impact businesses, does it?

Will you stay with me? Or is the upside-down world of our modern, Alice in Wonderland liberal America making you dizzy?

It’s me. This morning I woke up to the disturbing image of a giant burning Christmas tree right outside the Fox News deliberately set on fire.

Plumes of black smoke rose from the celebratory display after it was set on fire shortly after midnight in Fox Square, near the building housing Fox News

But according to the liberal Twitter that has been belittling crime all day, it's okay, this is just New York.  Pictured, NYPD officers are stationed Wednesday next to the charred remains of the tree

But according to the liberal Twitter that has been belittling crime all day, it’s okay, this is just New York.

Or, as a former adviser to President Biden, Jon B. Wolfsthal tweeted to me, “Hi Meghan McCain, I grew up in Manhattan in the 1970s. You live in paradise.’

Apparently, if you’re having trouble with any of the violent or disturbing images you see in New York City, you’re a crazy person. Burning Christmas trees is a paradise.

And it’s true that compared to what’s happened in New York City in recent years, it wasn’t that bad. At least no one was murdered or raped in broad daylight.

But call me old-fashioned, but I think there is a certain quality of life problem at play here.

It’s just sad to wake up and see a symbol of peace and vacation go up in flames in the middle of the city.

Now I’m not as upset as some people are by what the liberal media think of Twitterati because, as Dave Chapelle said, ‘Twitter is not a real place’ and if the opinion of those who were loudest on the platform was a reflection of the rest of the country that Bernie Sanders would become president with AOC would be its VP.

But it’s disturbing to see so many people happy to sacrifice themselves on the altar of irrational thinking, where nothing goes wrong in our big cities and you’re a right-wing lunatic to even suggest it.

It’s also interesting to see how so many people seemed to have extra fun knowing it was the Fox News Christmas tree.

Even the New York Times headline said, “Fox News Christmas Tree Catches Fire in Manhattan,” as if it somehow ignited spontaneously.

It reminds me of the ‘mostly peaceful’ protest headlines and chyrons on the cable news, when entire buildings behind broadcasters were set on fire last summer.

And I still don’t understand why so many media and the left are so unwilling to acknowledge violence when it’s blatantly right in front of them, especially in Democratic cities?

I can only conclude that this is because the policies of the Democrats and politicians look so bad and, even worse, because there is a specific segment of progressives who are actively thriving and enjoying this kind of social chaos.

They must be having the time of their lives.

We've all seen the videos of people being attacked on the subway.  An Asian woman was on platform R in uptown Times Square when a man snatched her bag and pushed her onto the rails at 1:45 p.m. on Nov. 12.

With a historic surge in homicides in 2020 and continued bloodshed in 2021, it looks like we’re moving back more and more to the infamous crime waves of the 1970s. The crime, by the way, heralded the renaissance of law and order under President Ronald Reagan.

Images of Venice Beach in Los Angeles and the small towns of homeless camps where drug use, rape and violence are rampant. I could go on but if you read dailymail.com you already know.

What I don’t understand is why so many Democrats seem determined to ignore the crime waves or gas those of us who are horrified by them, even at the risk of losing the midterms in historic numbers and eventually getting the White House again, to get even more. not to mention what the cities will cost in the end.

I’ve been on more than a few text chains with ex-New Yorkers (including myself now counting) and current ones who are about to leave because they can’t bear what is happening to the greatest city in the world.

This week, Brooklyn native and New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz wrote a column explaining her long, sad journey to the ultimate decision to leave the city she was born in, grew up in and would love to move to Florida.

Meanwhile, our good friend Sohrab Ahmari wrote a similar column in The American Spectator saying, “Please, liberals, don’t gaslight us. Don’t you dare say: Welcome to New York – it’s always been that way. No, it never was. It’s gotten much worse.’

I’ve lived in New York since I was eighteen, less than a few years when I tried Los Angeles and didn’t like it.

I loved New York, I had no intention of ever leaving it. Covid, crime and all the cliches changed that for me, just like so many others.

In the past ten months alone, 33,000 New Yorkers have moved to Florida. That excludes all other states and moves to suburbs and suburbs. This is truly one of the great tragedies of my generation, the acceptance of violence and the culture shift towards moral decay in some of the greatest cities in the world.

Trying to tell people that it’s normal to set fire to Christmas trees during the holidays

I hope the world famous Rockefeller Center tree gets an armed guard at this point.
