Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) was carjacked at gunpoint on Wednesday as she returned to her vehicle after an event in a Philadelphia park.

The congresswoman was “physically unharmed,” according to a statement from her spokesperson.

“She thanks the Philadelphia Police Department for their swift response, and appreciates the efforts of both the Sergeant at Arms in D.C. and her local police department for coordinating with Philly PD to ensure her continued safety,” the statement said.

 

According to WPVI, “Scanlon was walking to her parked vehicle and was approached by two men driving a dark-colored SUV.”

“Both men, who were armed, demanded the keys to her vehicle, police say,” WPVI continued. “They took off with her blue 2017 Acura MDX with license plate LKG-8893.”

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney released a statement saying he was “appalled” by the crime.

“I’m appalled to learn of this violent crime that was perpetrated against my friend and colleague, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon,” Kenney wrote on Twitter. “My thoughts are with her during what I’m sure is a traumatic time.”

“Everyone deserves to feel safe in our city, and sadly that hasn’t always been the case this year,” Kenney added. “It’s disheartening and infuriating that criminals feel emboldened to commit such a reckless crime in the middle of the day in what should be a place of peace — one of our city’s parks.”

    It’s exactly what our government in power has taught and sanctioned. And it rings across the country. Not just politicians being victims but citizens everywhere. It’s so disgusting. It started with Obama and has been on a roll with every democrat politician elected to office. Glorify criminals and this is what it will get you.

    Ask the Governor why he didn’t pass Constitutional Carry ? I forgot banning guns works, lol. These criminals could be stopped. And not by promoting their behavior. I bet she was in a gun free zone. How did that work out for ya Congress woman ? Democrats & Philly are a shining example as to what not to do. lol

    What happened to the part where she is an advocate of defunding the police? Did the perps get caught by the Deleware state police because Philly doesn’t have enough cops anymore, no thanks to her?

    According to Fox, her defund-the-police bill calls for mental health workers to be sent out instead of police. That is who they should have sent, a psychiatrist.

    What would you expect? It is the message of lawlessness preached in every liberal state in America.

Disney’s progressive ‘Strange World’ cartoon flops with disastrous $18M opening on a $180M budget

Disney’s attempt to push the woke agenda in children’s entertainment has royally flopped at the box office. “Strange World” features a gay teen as the main character and follows his romance; there is an environmental message as well.

Opening weekend sales came in well below projections, grossing a mere $11.9 million over the three-day weekend and $18.6 million over the five-day Thanksgiving holiday.

The Wrap called the movie a “historic bomb” due to its $180 million reported budget. Variety projected that the flick could lose as much as $100 million.

The Washington Times reports “the movie centers on a family of explorers embarking on a journey to save their planet from a mysterious environmental crisis, but ‘tries too hard to earn the diversity merit badge,’ as the MovieWeb review says.”

Not only is Disney attempting to impose propaganda on youth, but it has zero bravery in doing so. In countries where there is virtually zero acceptance and tolerance for homosexuality, Disney opted to skip out. According to CartoonBrew20, Disney did not release in international markets including China and the Middle East.

The Washington Times reports:

The film’s poor reception contributed to the perception of wokeness-run-amok at Disney, which was criticized for the lesbian kiss scene in “Lightyear,” a $200 million animated feature released in June that has grossed $115 million domestically, according to BombReport.

Last week, Disney rehired Bob Iger to replace CEO Bob Chapek, who landed the company in a feud with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the state law barring instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
