San Francisco, CA – The new district attorney-elect has pledged not to prosecute public urination and other quality of life crimes that plague the Bay area, prompting FOX News commentator Jesse Watters to suggest that “patriots” form a “Pee Party.”
"Do you remember the Tea Party?" Watters asked on Tuesday. "San Francisco needs to start the 'Pee Party.' OK. And this is what they need to do every day when the D.A. walks into his office there needs to be a bunch of patriots just peeing on the sidewalk in front of him until he's forced to arrest them."
San Francisco’s new, radical district attorney’s parents are famous cop killers.
Chesa Boudin is the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, two members of The Weather Underground who were convicted of murdering two police officers and a Brinks security guard during an armed robbery in 1981, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Watters predicted that Boudin was trying to create a “socialist utopia” in San Francisco, FOX News reported.
"The D.A. really hates this city,” the conservative pundit said. “He is there to destroy this city. His parents were domestic terrorists. They got locked up. Then he was raised by domestic terrorists."
"It makes perfect sense and now his job is to destroy an American city,” Watters explained. “He's a socialist. He wants to run everybody out of San Francisco and rebuild it as a socialist utopia. That's what's going on here."
Boudin, 39, was endorsed by Presidential hopeful U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), singer John Legend, and the co-founders of Black Lives Matter, as well as several first-term radical liberal prosecutors including Chicago’s beleaguered Cook County Prosecutor Kim Foxx and Philadelphia’s cop-hating district attorney, Larry Krasner.
Activist Shaun King’s Real Justice PAC and a lot of other money from outside the state of California filled the public defender’s campaign coffers, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Boudin was 14 months old when both of his parents left him with a sitter while they committed an armored car robbery in upstate New York, NBC News reported.
After his parents went to prison, he was raised by The Weather Underground’s leaders, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, in a life of privilege that led him to Yale University.
After college, Boudin won a Rhodes scholarship and then worked as a translator for the late Communist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, according to NBC News.
"Growing up, I had to go through a metal detector and steel gates just to give my parents a hug," Boudin said in one of his campaign videos.
His mother, Kathy Boudin, was released from prison in 2003 after serving 22 years for the murders, but his father, David Gilbert, remains behind bars serving life in prison, NBC News reported.
The newly-elected district attorney ran his campaign on criminal justice reform, claiming that he was also a “victim” of his parents’ armed robbery in 1981 that left three people dead, two of them police officers.
Boudin has claimed he was motivated to run for office because he has experienced the results of the “destructive effects of mass incarceration,” NBC News reported.
He campaigned on a promise of sweeping reforms and beat an establishment favorite, interim District Attorney Suzy Loftus.
Boudin said his victory is a call for refocusing the criminal justice system on rehabilitation instead of incarceration or punishment, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“It sends a pretty loud and clear message that the war on drugs and the tough-on-crime policies and rhetoric of the 1990s and early 2000s are on their way out,” Boudin said after his win. “It shows that there’s a massive thirst for change.”
He said he believed his real-life experience with the prison system helped him win.
“It made them appreciate that this is not just a kind of opportunity for political gain or power — this is a life journey for me,” Boudin told the Los Angeles Times. “This is something I’ve been affected by, thinking about, working on pretty much my entire life, and not something I got interested in in law school.”
