In recent months, we’ve seen numerous powerful police unions abandon the Democratic Party. They have openly endorsed Donald Trump for re-election, hitting Joe Biden with some heavy criticism. In response, Joe claimed police had backed him, until this year. Then he proved why the cops are rejecting him.
You might be surprised to learn that historically, police actually backed and endorsed Democratic candidates rather than Republican. Why? Aren’t Republicans far more supportive of law and order—and have been for years? Yes, they have. But police, like so many other professions, are members of unions. And Democrats have had a monopoly on unions since the days of FDR.
Cops were forced to back left-wing, limp-wristed candidates who blamed them for crime and took resources from their departments, because their unions told them to do so. But so much has changed since Trump entered politics. He exposed the hypocrisy of the Democrats, who long ago abandoned unions in favor of criminals and illegal aliens.
This year, police unions saw up close how Democrats and their media slimed their profession and supported criminals, anarchists, rioters, and looters. This comes after years of Democratic leadership watering down our laws and giving more and more advantages to drug dealers, rapists, and killers.
Numerous notable police unions—representing hundreds of thousands of cops—have backed President Trump in 2020. They’ve left Joe Biden flabbergasted. The old Democrat doesn’t seem to understand why he’s lost their support. And while complaining about it, he revealed why cops hate him.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared to suggest during an MSNBC town hall event on Monday night that he no longer had the support of law enforcement agencies, who he also said needed “sensitivity training.”
Biden was asked by a woman, who described herself as a mother of a police officer and wife of a retired police officer, to address the “troubling” movement to defund the police and how his policies would promote the safety of officers and communities. “Biden dodged the question of safety, but pointed out that cops had supported him in the past…”
“I have had overwhelming support from police my whole career, up until this year,” Biden told the woman…

Lol, wow, Joe. You are willing to admit that cops have refused to back you “this year.” Yet the Democrat can’t seem to figure out why. Maybe it has something to do with his party blaming all cops for the actions of a few. Then, turning a blind eye to riots, killings, and violent crime. Oh, and all the while, Joe has refused to call out BLM, Antifa, and the rest of his party for these events.
Joe further proves why cops are leaving him. He almost saved himself by saying cops need to receive “more help.” Hmm, could this mean Biden is in favor of increasing police funding? No, because he went on to say they need “sensitivity training.”
Does he know anything about police departments? Does Biden not know about the extensive training cops receive to be on the force? (Training that includes being sensitive to certain situations and people, in order to prevent acts of violence and crime.)
But Joe most likely was referring to the kind of pathetic, PC, social justice kind of “sensitivity training” that sounds good to leftists but does nothing to help in the real world.
Cops don’t need to carry around teddy bears and therapy dogs. They need to be armed and ready to stop bad guys from destroying our communities. Leave the “sensitivity training” to manicurists. We want cops that can fight to save our lives.
Ironically, Joe can’t even see why cops don’t want him as president.
