Greg Gutfeld: What's really missing from the Left is compassion

Gutfeld: Larry Elder vs. Gavin Newsom over California’s recall

‘Gutfeld!’ panel discusses the issues that face the Golden State

So, guess what it’s time for: Everything is Racist!

So tonight, a tale of two coasts, and two elections. 

As you know, there’s a recall going on in California. Except this recall isn’t for defective airbags.  It’s for a defective windbag, namely, his royal haircut, Gavin Newsom. And it appears the person who has the biggest chance of winning is Larry Elder. Who is black. 

But what’s the LA Times claiming is causing the recall? Racism. So – do I have this right? A privileged white male governor, who’s as ethnic as cauliflower pizza crust – is being recalled and his possible replacement is a Black man. Yeah, that sounds about as racist as an episode of “What’s Happening!” 

Here’s a tip for the Times – it might be faster if you just published a list of things that aren’t racist.

So the reason for the recall isn’t rampant crime, untreated mental illness, or homelessness, or even the Kardashians. It’s not that Californians can’t get water, or go outside. It’s not high taxes or legalized larceny. Its racism. 

Yes, they claim that its white supremacy that’s led to the recall in California, one of the most liberal states in the nation. Next, they’ll blame all these forest fires on burning crosses.

See their logic is that it’s the racists who are painting California as a hotbed of crime and homelessness. And those things actually aren’t real – just propaganda from some amorphous band of bigots. Makes me wonder if the people who write for the LA Times have ever been to California? 

Have they been downtown? Near the overpasses. Or walked the beaches. It’s not white supremacists sleeping on the benches, building tent cities, littering the boardwalks with syringes. 

The elites would know this, if they ever stepped outside of their gated communities and walled mansions, and saw how real people suffer from the policies they promote. And really, White supremacists are as rare in California as celebrities who bathe.

But damn – if only there was a way to refute that claim. You know, like, what if the leading Republican challenger was black?

Nah, that’s too crazy.  No one would believe that. But there it is. – that guy is Larry Elder – the Black man who earlier had been called the “black face of white supremacy,” by another columnist. 

If that’s true, he’s been in blackface for almost 70 years. That kind of commitment would make Rachel Dolezal jealous. Now, if you said those things about a Democrat candidate who happened to be black, you’d be canceled faster than a Cosby show reboot. 

Now they’re making the argument that Larry Elder isn’t “really” black. Because, for Democrats, Blacks are great, until you challenge the Democrats. Then it’s about the content of your character. And to them, you only have character if you stay on their plantation. 

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country – there’s another election, and maybe some hope for cleaning up New York City. Right now the city is experiencing its own renaissance of recklessness.

I never thought I’d see the day when a crazed man attacks a car with a spatula. But that indeed happened here in NYC. First, we’re getting carjacked, now we’re getting flap jacked. I don’t know if I should call the cops or IHOP. The dude was later subdued and beaten by a mob. But this is what happens when DA’s start waffling. 

So Curtis Sliwa is running for mayor – and he seems to actually give a damn about the people living on its streets. And not the streets whose residents head to the Hamptons at the first sign of trouble. 

A video made the rounds – and it’s worth watching. Hey, Pelosi and friends watch and learn!

*Video on emotionally disturbed man, who had several stays at Bellevue Hospital, interrupting a Sliwa press conference, The man begins crying when asked by Sliwa if he’d rather be somewhere else than Penn Station. Sliwa puts his arm around the man and says he is running for mayor and will make sure the man and his friends are taken care of*

Pretty moving stuff. And ignore the lefties screaming “it was staged!” As if AOC’s whole life isn’t one big photo op. But that’s what’s really missing from the left – compassion. Along with logic, reason, and truth.

The Left pretends that their policies help those less fortunate, but a stroll down the street in a major blue city proves otherwise. We see the consequences. And most of them are asking you if you can spare any change, sticking a gun in your face, or showing you their junk. And those are just the Democratic mayors. 

People like that disturbed man suffer on the sidewalks of New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Fran, Seattle, and anywhere else where there’s been no opposition to the rise of the hard left. 

Fact is, when you look at the damage being done, you’re seeing the consequences of one-party rule. They are mini fiefdoms – not a Republican in sight. That’s what happens when you have no competition. Ruin.

And real sensible Democrats should be pissed – because, without loyal opposition, their party degrades into a motley bunch of woke brain-dead malicious zombies.

It’s not like the Republicans are saviors by any means– you just need two parties, to keep each other from destroying itself. It’s time we did something to turn the tide.

But it’s gonna take more than one guardian angel to defeat a bunch of Marxist devils and save those two states. It’s going to take a rebirth of Republicanism. Too bad they’re all moving to Texas.
