(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – New Yorkers worried about the increase in crime levels in the city under the leadership of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg fired back at Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee who had alleged that they were “MAGA props” during a recent hearing in the city.
David Rem, a lifelong New Yorker, told Fox News Digital that “it was so insulting.” Rem had been escorted out of a House Judiciary Committee field hearing after complaining about the way that those invited to testify were being treated by Democratic members of the committee. He added that this was the reason he had “stood up” because he did not appreciate how they were trying to present them as being “fake props.”
The hearing in New York City took place last week and it was called “Victims of Violent Crime in Manhattan.” During the meeting, many of the victims and residents of the city stated that they were displeased with Bragg’s soft stance on crime. However, the meeting became contentious after Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., accused witnesses of being “props in a MAGA Broadway production.”
Johnson had argued at the time that “MAGA Republican extremists are not interested in gun violence, or even knife violence,” and that the Republican witnesses have been serving “as props in a MAGA Broadway production.”
These comments come after Bragg filed criminal charges against former President Donald Trump in connection to hush money payment that took place before the 2016 presidential election. Many have accused this move of being hypocritical as Bragg’s has taken a soft approach to crime otherwise.
