Yesterday President Biden decided it would be a good time to reward lawless Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael “Road Rage” Rollins by nominating her for United States Attorney. Despite being a catastrophic failure of epic proportions Biden bragged about it because it was a “historic first.”
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, matters more to Democrats in 2021 than the color of your skin. That’s followed closely by gender identity and who you sleep with. Far down the list somewhere is how good you actually are at your job. It’s why I laugh every time I hear them whine about systemic racism, in a system that is built for incompetent people to rise to power based solely on their phenotype.
Here’s the official statement about the nomination from the White House.
Rollins was chosen for her “devotion to enforcing the law?” She’s most famous for being the first DA in the country to proudly announce that she would not be enforcing the law by refusing to prosecute 15 crimes, including possession of drugs with intent to sell, larceny, and shoplifting.
What about her “experiences and credentials in the the field?” She’s been the DA for all of two years, and she was never a prosecutor prior to that. Sounds like “inexperienced and incompetent” is also one of the historic firsts here.
Let’s not forget some of her other greatest hits in the last couple years:
- Called her opponent Michael Maloney racist in a debate because he said his favorite book was Tom Sawyer
- Failed to disclose that 9 of the 15 crimes she was not prosecuting were committed by her criminal siblings, including her brother who was released early from jail shortly after she took office
- Attempted not to prosecute dozens of people arrested for violent protests that resulted in four Boston police officers being injured, and then blasted a judge who refused her request not to prosecute them
- Went out of her way to get charges dismissed against Rod Webber, a white male from a wealthy Needham family who still lives with his mother at the age of 47, despite the fact that Rod Webber is a psychopath who does this in public

- Publicly blasted the public defender’s office for employing too many white people
- Once said of a white US Attorney who criticized her, “I really don’t have much time for more white men telling me what communities of color need, because they don’t know.”
- Said about black people and police, “we are being murdered at will by the police”
Ahmaud Arbery. George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Tony McDade. Christian Cooper. While we are being murdered at will by the police & their proxy, privileged racists like Amy Cooper play the victim. No more apologies. No more words. Demand action. Radical change now. Nothing less. ✊🏾

- When the police union objected to this mischaracterization she accused them of displaying “white fragility,” despite representing hundreds of black officers
You mean Anti-Police BRUTALITY. And did I somehow miss BPPA’s letter denouncing the murder of George Floyd and calling for the immediate termination and prosecution of the 4 police that murdered him and/or watched and did nothing while he died? White fragility is real people. 🐴 https://t.co/Q0BQWT2n3I

- Worked with and endorsed Monica Cannon-Grant for several years, despite being aware of several violent and racist posts made by MCG
- Said that she was “exhausted” because police officers “shoot us (black people) in the street as if we were animals,” stoking racial resentment and leading to riots and looting all over Boston
- Had a criminal complaint filed against her by a citizen during a traffic dispute in which she got out of her car, threatened to give the woman a ticket, (which she does not have the authority to do) then illegally used her blue lights on the state owned vehicle she was using to drive her kids around to go through a red light
- Compared her white female accuser to the woman who got Emmett Till murdered
- Debated me on Howie Carr’s show about this incident and lied several times, including claiming that she did not use her blue lights, which her victim would not know existed had she not used them
- Falsely claimed that a masked white man came to her house, took something out of her trunk and aimed it at her, failing to mention that the man was a reporter from Boston 25 News and he was aiming a camera at her
- Threatened to abuse the powers of her office by making up a crime in order to have this reporter arrested, and launched a racist attack against her victim by claiming that her complaint were the “rantings of a white woman”
New video by @boston25 now shows @DARollins exiting her vehicle that was being driven by a @BostonPolice and walking towards reporters. Completely contradicting her tweets about the encounter… her utter shock that the rules apply to her the same as the public is palpable… pic.twitter.com/c9dZzDPdZg

- Claimed that iPhones were racist because she couldn’t figure out how to change the race of the judge emoji on her phone, while ignoring several unsolved murders including an elderly black woman who was killed while sitting on her porch
- Interfered in the investigation conducted by Middlesex DA Marian Ryan’s office into the Mikayla Miller suicide in a county in which she does not have jurisdiction, undermining Ryan’s work by suggesting to the girl’s mother that her daughter was lynched by 5 white teenagers
For all of these things she was rewarded and promoted by the Biden administration, solely because she is a black woman, while claiming that her race and gender prevent people who look like her from advancing in our systemically racist society.
Rollins also attempted to prevent ICE from arresting illegal immigrants in Suffolk County courthouses, which she was later prevented from doing by an appeals court. This is noteworthy because the man she would be replacing, Andrew Lelling, took the opposite approach. Lelling charged Newton Judge Shelley Joseph in federal court after she arranged for an illegal immigrant charged with violent crimes to escape out the back door of the courthouse when she discovered that ICE agents were sitting outside her courtroom waiting to detain him. Joseph will likely have her charges dropped now and return to work. This is the type of reform and accountability the Trump appointed Lelling pushed for that Rollins wants to undo. Despite claiming to fight for the poor and powerless Rollins has consistently used her office to protect the powerful while ignoring the destructive effects of her policies on crime in Boston.
Lelling acknowledged after the Biden administration came to power that his brand of law enforcement was no longer valued.
“I think it’s time to go,” Lelling said. “It’s a new crew at the Justice Department and their law enforcement policies may be different than the ones I would want to enforce. Knowing that the new administration is going to ask you to move on at some point, this seemed like the time to seek new challenges and go do them.”
Lelling’s career was wildly successful and undervalued. His other major accomplishments include:
- Investigating, arresting, charging, and convicting Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia in a marijuana license extortion scandal
- Charging 31 of the most notorious gang members in Boston with racketeering, drug trafficking, crossing state lines for the purpose of prostitution (the Mann Act), firearms charges and bank fraud – something Road Rage Rollins has no intention of doing
- Charging an MIT professor with passing sensitive technology information to the Chinese government – something Rollins has no intention of pursuing
Rollins primary goal as US Attorney would be to continue to protect powerful people like Shelley Joseph, while using her office to go after police officers and her political enemies, all of whom will be falsely labeled as “white supremacists” and “domestic terrorists.” She has to be confirmed by the Senate, and both Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren have already said they’d vote for her, despite giving lip service to the woman Rollins victimized in December.
“District Attorney Rollins is a great choice for U.S. Attorney, and we were proud to recommend her to the Biden administration,”they said in a statement. Rollins “is a national leader on transforming the criminal justice system and shifting away from an approach based on punishment and penalization to one that combats the root causes of injustice, whether it be poverty, substance use, or racial disparity. She has prosecutorial experience, and is dedicated and committed to advancing equal justice for all, and we are certain that she will be a tremendous U.S. Attorney.”
Any Republican who votes for her should be primaried.
The only thing that matters to democrats is race. If you voted for Joe Biden, then you did this. You knew that his administration would be so obsessed with identity politics that they’d appoint incompetent people like Rachael Rollins based solely on the color of their skin, and then celebrate it as a “historic first.” But at least you don’t have those bad tweets to worry about anymore.
