Hoping to hoodwink African-American voters for one more election, Democrats are preying on legitimate anger about the excessive use of force in the death of George Floyd.
Knowing full well that African-Americans have enjoyed the best economic opportunities in history in recent years, radical leftists are fanning the “Defund the Police” movement to pit Black voters against Republicans and President Donald Trump. The left has made a living dividing the country by race, gender, and economic status. But like the false promises made to minority and inner-city Americans for decades, Democrat promises will only worsen conditions. Hard-working police officers are already beginning to resign from some of the most critical posts in protest.
In Minneapolis, where George Floyd died in police custody, seven officers have resigned from the department after the city council adopted a resolution to disband the MPD.
“We acknowledge that the current system is not reformable — that we would like to end the current policing system as we know it,” council member Alondra Cano reportedly said.
In Seattle, armed Antifa anarchists seized complete control of sections of the city and established “no-go” zones for police. Terrified residents have had to fend for themselves and some reportedly hired private security for protection. Residents in Seatle, Minneapolis, and other Democrat-run cities my soon discover what living in a community looks like when no one answers your 911 call.
“You can’t really reform a department that is rotten to the root,” Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar said.
At least seven more police officers are in the process of leaving the Minneapolis PD due to a lack of support from government officials. At least one member of the Minneapolis City Council has ties to Antifa.
In South Florida, 10 officers resigned from the critical SWAT team. The group tasked with handling the greatest dangers to the lives of community members may no longer have the personnel to respond. SWAT is routinely called when terror groups take up arms or rampage shooters gun-down civilians. Officers claimed their imminent-threat task force was already being defunded and cited liberal “progressive activist” Hallandale Beach vice mayor Sabrina Javellana as anti-cop.
“She has shown that she takes pleasure in besmirching the hard work and dedication of the members of this professional agency, having the gall to compare us to the Minneapolis Police Department,” the SWAT team stated. The letter goes on to claim officials were “placing the safety of dogs over the safety of the team members.”
In Buffalo, all 57 members of the city’s emergency response team resigned after a pair of officers were suspended for pushing a protesting senior who attempted to penetrate their ranks. And, congressional Democrats are calling for massive cuts to police departments across the country.
Republicans led by President Trump are considering commonsense use-of-force reforms while fully supporting the thin blue line. The GOP has also pointed out that Democrats won a House majority in 2018 after claiming they would seek middle ground and do the people’s business. As we’ve all seen, nothing could be further from the truth.
“House Democrats have gone so extreme with their ‘abolish culture’ that they’re one step away from wanting to outlaw fire departments,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Chris Pack said. “This is insanity and not what Democrats ran on two years ago.”
