Greg Gutfeld: National leaders' silence on crime is 'existential threat'

Gutfeld: Unstable maniacs get to attack citizens freely

‘Gutfeld!’ panel reacts to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s plan to issue more concealed weapons permits to curb violence

I spend a fair portion of TV time talking about crime. But that’s because as a small government fan, but a huge TV star – it’s really the only thing I want addressed by our politicians. That and the height requirement for theme park rides. I mean, are the teacups really that dangerous?

And maybe I watched too many cop shows as a kid. In fact, while other kids played doctor, I played stop and frisk. But if we can create safe societies, everyone benefits – equally. You’re more free to pursue your dreams – be it education, or career, or my favorite hobby, soaring through the air in porta-potties!  

But all of this is hard to do in a society in which thugs are allowed to roam free like locally raised free-range chicken. When crime goes up, your opportunity for a reasonable existence on this planet drops faster than Kat’s bank account on Saint Patrick’s Day. 

The list literally goes on and on. And our leaders offer nothing, but platitudes. And when their cowardice shows, they point fingers at you, the racist. 

So what happens when your national leaders refuse to acknowledge the mayhem around you? Their silence becomes the existential threat. 

And this one is real.
