In a press release on Wednesday, the Board of Association of Deputy District Attorneys called out pro-crime, George Soros-backed District Attorney George Gascón for saying nothing about the recent Hamas terror attacks, despite being vocal about a range of foreign policy issues having little to do with the county.
The L.A. prosecutors blasted the glaring silence of their boss regarding the Palestinian atrocities against Israeli civilians:
For the last three years, District Attorney George Gascón has seldom missed a chance to insert himself into the news cycle. He has commented on the deaths of famous artists and politicians. He has shared his views on Supreme Court decisions. He has even opined on international conflicts in Ukraine and, just last month, in Armenia and Azerbaijan.
But for the last five days, he has said nothing about the indiscriminate massacre of innocent civilians in Israel. And his silence has caused significant concern among his employees, especially those who are Jewish.
As prosecutors, we are committed to seeking justice on behalf of victims.
Israel’s dead were young and old. They were rich and poor. They were Jews. They were Mexican, British, Thai, Brazilian, Chinese, German, Nepali, French, Tanzanian, and, yes, American. They were sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers. Some were bedridden. Some were new to this world, just learning to crawl.
They were raped, kidnapped, held hostage, and murdered.
These victims deserve our compassion, not indifference.
George Gascón’s silence in the face of this atrocious tragedy is disgraceful, insensitive, and cowardly.
When he commented on the humanitarian crisis in Artsakh last month, Gascón wrote that he was “committed to standing up for human rights, speaking out against hate, and preventing such atrocities.”
Where is that commitment or leadership today?
Gascón was elected in 2020 with the backing of the neo-Marxist, revolutionary Black Lives Matter movement and with the aid of millions of dollars from anti-Israel, left-wing billionaire financier Soros.
