JEANINE PIRRO (CO-HOST): The arrogance and the ignorance of Seattle residents that Johnny interviewed is shocking. I mean, how could they be clueless? 

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Well, they're in denial. And if you look at the demographics of the city, it's understandable. It is a very, highly educated city. Very white, very LGBTQ, very secular. And they all believe in the same thing, which is, criminalizing crime is racist.

There is someone, a victims' advocate, who just quit after 25 years because she said crime victims are being pressured by courts to recommend non prison sentences. So if you get assaulted, you're supposed to want that person to go to rehab instead of prison, and they're being bullied into doing this.

It's about white guilt and it's about people learning from these professors that in order to make everybody equal, they can't punish criminality. And it's gotten so bad that criminals are now coming into the city. We did it with sex offenders. We used to see these sex offenders go to places like Vermont or California, where they know they can get away with preying on children because they know that there's soft sentences. They're doing the same thing here and it's predatory.


But you see what they've done politically. They never vote Republican. And so they've continued to vote Democrat year after year, referendum after referendum, and the quality of life keeps going down. And they've accepted the death spiral.
