In the wake of the death of George Floyd, violent and destructive riots ravaged the city of Minneapolis. Countless buildings and businesses were destroyed, including a police station. The mayor and governor were powerless to stop it. Now, the city’s council has vowed to abolish their police force. But the mayor stands defiant.
In the last two weeks, we’ve watched Antifa thugs spread violence and chaos across the country. This terrorist group organized attacks across major cities. They worked with BLM and anyone else willing to riot, loot, and destroy businesses. In many (Democrat-run) cities, the leaders were unable to end the madness, until the National Guard was brought in.
So, what’s the best response to all this? I know! Defund and abolish the police!
Sounds crazy? Yeah, because it is. But that is exactly the latest mantra chanted by liberals nationwide. As leftists prove they are willing to destroy our country, Democrats want to encourage them by removing the one group dedicated to protecting black (and all) American lives.
The radical members of Minneapolis’ city council have vowed to abolish their police department. It appears they have enough votes to prevent the mayor from vetoing them. But the mayor continues to defy this radical, insane proposal.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey on Sunday reiterated that he doesn’t support abolishing the city’s police force, hours after a veto-proof majority of members of the Minneapolis City Council said they want to take that drastic step in the wake of the in-custody death of George Floyd…
“I’ll work relentlessly with Chief [Medaria] Arradondo and alongside community toward deep, structural reform and addressing systemic racism in police culture,” Frey said in a statement to KARE. “We’re ready to dig in and enact more community-led, public safety strategies on behalf of our city. But, I do not support abolishing the Minneapolis Police Department.” [Source: Fox News]
Abolishing the police during a season of unrest is like firing your doctor when you have cancer. It’s like cutting off your leg, because you stubbed your toe. Just because there might be a few bad cops in a police department does not mean you abolish the entire thing! The four cops responsible for Floyd’s death have already been fired and charged. Why go further than that?
Because this is not about George Floyd. This is an obvious and desperate attempt by Democrats to appeal to the most-radical wing of their party. They think if they actually abolish the cops (in Minneapolis and nationwide), they will secure the support of black Americans and will have enough votes to defeat Trump.
No, seriously, this is their plan.
They got nothing else. Joe Biden’s brain is melting out of his head. The economy is already climbing back after the virus. What real platform do Democrats have that can beat Trump?
Polls suggest a huge number of black voters approve of Trump. And Biden just recently insulted black Americans with his “you ain’t black” comment. Democrats actually think that abolishing the police will appease enough black folks that they’ll happily march back into the Democratic Plantation.
I don’t have to tell you how utterly insane abolishing a police force is. This is something out of a bad Simpsons episode. To make matters worse, the idiots on Minneapolis’ city council don’t even have a plan for keeping the city safe if they do abolish the police. It’s clearly a stunt to impress what can only be a fragment of the black population.
Yet cities all over the country want to take vital funds from cops and give it to social justice activists. They want to rob the police of their ability to train and equip good cops, who work tirelessly to keep our cities safe.
All because liberals are so stupid, so desperate, they think this will win them November.
When you’re desire to win is so great, that you’re willing to abolish cops… you really need to get out of politics.
