POSOBIEC: Burglary Crews Are Flying to Los Angeles From South America for Crime Tourism


Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec slammed California’s district attorneys, and dug into the emerging practice by criminals of using their tourist visas to benefit from crimes they’ve committed.

Posobiec began by calling California a “free for all state” when it comes to crime.

“It’s a free for all inside California cities, where some of the richest people in the United States live. But apparently, because of the actions of DAs like Chess Boudin, actions by other DAs, Gascon in Los Angeles, to not enforce the law,” he said.

Posobiec then began to tell viewers about crime tourism, where criminals are let out of jail and are able to leave the country with stolen goods.

“So tourist visas right?…You’re only allowed in the United States for a limited amount of time. So if you’re in the United States for a limited amount of time and you’ve got to go back, you’ve got to leave or else you’d be considered visa overstay, that’s an illegal immigrant. Not that these people care about that.”

“But they do realize they want to come back, because they want to keep doing this, and they’re able to keep doing it, and here’s how. Because even if they get arrested, they get let out of jail faster than the time it takes for the visa to expire. So that means they’re able to get back on the street, drive to LAX, get back on an airplane, go back to the country from whence they came with their stolen loot,” Posobiec explained.

Posobiec then urged viewers to “embrace the suck” of the reality of the situation in the US and acknowledge the state of law and order in America.

“This is our country right now. I want you to hear it. I want you to understand it. I want you to embrace it. I want you to embrace the suck. We are seen as a place where crime and crime sprees are just waiting to happen. Because what’s the one thing that connects the three stories that we’ve done so far today? It’s policing and law enforcement,” he said, “and the broader section of the idea, the category of enforcing the law to maintain our society.”

“You know, when Yuri Bezmenov, the KGB defector said that the way to destabilize a society is by releasing the criminals, I think he may have been on to something,” said Posobiec referring to the former KGB agent and propaganda expert who defected to Canada in the 1970s.

Bezmenov lead a lecture titled “Stages of Subversion” which warned the free world of how democratic institutions were erroded to push Soviet agendas. Notes from the famous lecture detail his warnings of the following tactics:

  • “Creating inflation”
  • “Propoganda of ‘strong government'”
  • “Militarlization of ‘grass roots’ movements and minority groups”
  • “Propaganda of gun control for the law-abiding population with simultaneous relaxation of attitude towards recidivist criminals. Thus, rendering a nation helpless and defenseless in the future event of political terrorism…”
  • Replacing democratic institutions with “centralized government appointed bodies, people cannot re-elect or get rid of otherwise”
  • “Breaking down national unity” on ethnic, racial, religious and linguistic matters
  • The “sabotage and arrangement of accidents on transport, power stations etc. to create an atmosphere of insecurity and panic”
