Top Aide for San Francisco DA Locks Twitter Account After Comparing People Concerned About Crime to KKK


By Cassandra Fairbanks

One of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin’s top aides has locked down their Twitter account after comparing people who are concerned about rising crime to the Ku Klux Klan.

Kate Chatfield, Boudin’s senior director for legislation and policy, had screenshotted a concerned resident’s tweet and mocked her for her concerns.

The woman that Chatfield was mocking, Michelle Tandler, describes herself as a moderate Democrat.

Tandler had tweeted, “Anecdotally, every single one of my friends right now is considering leaving SF” due to crime, she added, “My friends are scared for their children, and their husbands are scared for their wives.”

“‘Husbands are scared for their wives’—your reminder that the ‘crime surge’ crowd shares the same ideology as The Birth of a Nation,” Chatfield tweeted with a link to the Wikipedia page for the classic film.

In “The Birth of a Nation,” a 1915 silent film starring Lilian Gish, the Ku Klux Klan is portrayed as a heroic group who protect white women from sexually aggressive black men.

SFGate reports that “Boudin’s office declined to comment on the contents of the tweet, stating that Chatfield acted in a personal capacity and not as a representative of the district attorney’s office.”

“Boudin is currently the target of a recall campaign, and recall proponents widely shared and denounced the Chatfield tweet,” the report added.

“The declamation from the Boudin Campaign today is that you subscribe to the KKK ideology if you oppose what he is doing to the legal system in San Francisco,” one of the recall groups tweeted. “Absurd extremist language.”

As she and Boudin received backlash over the ridiculous take, Chatfield set her Twitter account to private.

    Do public service jobs attract crazy people? They can’t get a real job, the public service Job requires no skills other than projecting your insanity on other people. In CA you also get paid more than skilled labor.

    You can’t get a more apt depiction of the term “white liberal” than that abomination of a face [it is sitting snuggled up against the term in the dictionary]. In other words it is the face that no one remotely human would ever want to F and even a mother hates [a face only a mother could love]. That face has only one real use in a civilized society and that would be as repellent for a rat infestation. That face hit every limb when it fell out of the ugly tree at which point is was S on by huge grizzly post taco bell lunch. That face makes new born babies go back up in.

    Why did she assume it’s just white men caring about their white women? I’m certain there are a lot of Asian, Hispanic and black citizens of San Francisco who are also concerned about their loved ones. So who’s the real racist?

    You know I’ve never seen Birth of A Nation. Apparently Kate Chatfield has.

    “The Birth of a Nation” – A propaganda film that was I believe commissioned by the DEMOCRAT Woodrow Wilson’s administration, meant to justify the racism of the PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT party of the day.

    Chatfield’s Twitter account header pic is rather troubling as well. Betcha’ anything that both Boudin and Chatfield are marxists, but keep it on the downlow. I thought candidates for public office had to divulge all their party, club, union, academic, professional and other organization memberships so as to determine if any are, or are required to be, opposed to the COTUS and America as a Constitutional Repubic, and if so, would disqualify them from even running.

    Time to reinstate loyalty pledges by civil servants at all levels, elected or not.
