This past weekend, the DFL House passed a bill that would force Minnesotans to pay for the bills that DFL Mayor Jacob Frey caused. According to the Alpha News article, “The Democrat-controlled state house voted 74-53, Friday, in affirmation of a bill (HR 132/the PROMISE Act) that saddles taxpayers from around Minnesota with the burden of funding repairs to private and public property in the Twin Cities that was destroyed by the George Floyd riots. This bill, if passed, will also increase sales taxes and trigger an investigation into the law enforcement and National Guard response to the unrest.”

Let me talk for rural voters on this. Frey let the rioters and looters demolish his city when he could’ve prevented the violence. Now he expects the rest of Minnesota to pay for his incompetence? I don’t think so.

It’s one thing for Minnesotans to pay for natural disasters. That’s what we’ve always done. This isn’t that, though. This time, the rioting and looting weren’t an act of God. This was the result of major mayoral mismanagement. It’s what to expect from a ditzy progressive mayor who’s more activist/airhead than leader. Based on this video, he’s mostly a wimp:

Republicans need to tell the DFL to take a hike. Republicans need to say that we aren’t paying for their activists’ (think Black Lives Matter, Antifa) lawlessness. The Democrats’ spinelessness, unhinged activism and connection with radicals like BLM and Antifa led to these buildings getting demolished. Had the DFL cared more about protecting the people than about having an issue for the campaign, we wouldn’t be in this position. Also, electing Jacob Frey instead of someone that’s competent is a stain on the DFL. It says where the DFL’s priorities lie.
