As the old saying goes, “be careful what you wish for”. San Francisco’s Bay Area, the most perhaps the “progressive” area of the most deep-blue Democrat state in America, is getting what it wished for. I wonder how they’re enjoying it?

Another mob of looters targeted several San Francisco Bay Area retailers on Sunday night, marking the third such incident in as many days.

The Bay Area is an ultra-liberal enclave of Silicon Valley types. Not coincidentally, it’s also the wealthiest area of the United States, with one of the highest income inequalities. As wealthy elites will, Bay Area types have heavily endorsed such “progressive” nostrums as “racial reckoning” and “defund the police”.

They’re experiencing a hard dose of both.

Police told CBS San Francisco that they responded to the multiple calls of smash-and-grab looting incidents at the Southland Mall in Hayward, located south of Oakland and north of San Jose. They told the station that robbers used hammers to smash cases before running off with jewelry at a jewelry store.

“I would say at least 30 to 40 [people] from what I saw,” an unnamed witness told San Francisco CBS Local, which was corroborated by another witness. “But then after the main group of kids rushed out, we saw 15 to 20 scattering, some even came back in.”

A nearby Macy’s store in the mall was also ransacked, witnesses told the station.

This is par for the course with last year’s BLM riots. Gangs of organised looters, some even travelling in convoys and buses, roved wealthy suburbs, helping themselves to some good old “reparations”.

The hip liberals of the Bay Area are somewhat discombobulated to discover that the mobs they’ve cheered on for the past year are not quite the noble oppressed they’d come to believe.

“It was very scary,” added another to the news outlet. “People with no morals, no sense for other people’s safety. I feel helpless. It’s disturbing.”

Yeah, but ACAB, amirite? Just call a social worker, they’ll sort it out. That’s the whole idea of “defund the police”, isn’t it?

Yet, while people in Louisana, post-Hurrican Katrina, were damned by the left-media for helping themselves to food and water, the poor, huddled masses of BLM set their sights somewhat higher than the bare necessities.

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle, Hayward police Lt. Mark Ormsby said the looters targeted the jewelry store at about 5:30 p.m. local time Sunday. The looters, he said, then fled in waiting vehicles outside the mall.

No arrests were made on Sunday evening, he told the paper.

Looters also targeted a Lululemon store in Santana Row, San Jose, and took merchandise […]

It’s not clear if the robberies in Hayward and San Jose were connected to mass looting incidents at a Nordstrom location in Walnut Creek on Saturday or the one that targeted a Louis Vuitton store among other businesses in San Francisco’s Union Square the day before that. There were also reports of looters targeting marijuana dispensaries in Oakland over the weekend.

The Epoch Times

Just remember, wealthy Bay Area residents: don’t you dare take up arms to defend yourselves from the rampaging mobs. That’s “white supremacy”.
