BLM Turns on Dems, Demands Schiff NOT Be Appointed As Next CA Attorney General

Democrats used the Black Lives Matter movement to win the 2020 election and have discarded them now that they are in power.

Now, BLM is not happy about it and is going after a top Democrat.

It has been reported that California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is being lobbied to appoint Rep. Adam Schiff as California’s next Attorney General.

Current Attorney General Xavier Becerra is expected to vacate the position if he is confirmed to serve in President Joe Biden’s Cabinet as secretary of Health and Human Services.

Axios reported that “Schiff is quietly lobbying” Newsom and the governor’s allies, citing “people familiar with the matter.”

According to the outlet, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “has given her approval to Schiff’s bid,” adding, the AG job “would better position Schiff…to run for Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat, should the 87-year-old decide not to run for reelection in 2024.”

The Reimagine Justice California Coalition, which includes Los Angeles-based Black Lives Matter leaders Patrisse Cullors, Melina Abdullah, and dozens of allied progressive activist groups, co-signed an open letter to Newsom scrutinizing Schiff’s record.

“When Adam Schiff was a member of the California legislature, he was not only supportive of, but deeply invested in, creating our current system of incarceration,” the letter reads. “This system of incarceration has continued to devastate communities of color and continues to take resources away from our schools, cities, and from all Californians in need.”

“Schiff was elected to the California State Senate in 1996, four years before moving on to the U.S. Congress. The letter includes a litany of decades-old bills attributed to Schiff, along with a brief breakdown of the alleged negative consequences those measures had on society after passage. It suggests that Schiff’s policies helped increase the state’s prison population, make more people homeless, and are partly responsible for leaving some rural areas of the Golden State without access to clean water,” the Daily Wire reported.

The letter continued:

“In his single term of four years, Adam Schiff made increased incarceration and punishment for poor parents the focus of his legislative agenda,” it said. “He was not merely a ‘yes’ vote on bad legislation, he was the author of so many bills that were aimed directly at poor people, Black people, and people of color.”

“One person alone is not responsible for California’s incarceration crisis. But Schiff stands out for his extreme punitiveness, particularly against children. Moreover, as a former federal prosecutor, Schiff knew exactly what the consequences of his actions would be; he cannot plead ignorance.”

More from the letter:

We know that many Democratic politicians in the 1990’s and 2000’s espoused a “tough on crime” platform. However, even President Biden, one such politician, campaigned on ending the federal death sentence and acknowledged that his prior tough on crime policies were a mistake.

In contrast, Schiff has continued to support legislation that would expand the size and scope of our system of incarceration, including voting recently to expand the federal death penalty, legislation that was part of a right wing narrative against Black Lives Matter and calls across the United States for police accountability.

The letter concludes by telling Newsom that California needs “an Attorney General who will hold police officers and police departments accountable, not one who has spent his legislative career serving their interests.”

“We are still dealing with the legacy of Adam Schiff in California,” it continues. “We urge you in the strongest possible terms not to appoint Adam Schiff to be California’s next Attorney General.”
