Radical leftists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seized on the Black Lives Matter protests to impose their socialist agenda on America.
But Ocasio-Cortez and her allies went too far.
A cop had three words for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that shut down defund the police.
“Defund the police” is the rallying cry that emerged on the left in the wake of the riots following George Floyd’s murder.
Black Lives Matter and other socialists want to dismantle the police because they claim law enforcement is part of the institutional racism that pervades American life.
In reality, they want to abolish the police because the police are the one institution remaining in America that the left does not control.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez assumed the mantle of leading the defund the police crusade in Congress.
But Americans concerned about lawlessness and crime thriving in a world with no police are pushing back.
At a “We Back Blue” rally in Washington, D.C. former police officer Tom Homan blasted liberals for wanting to abolish the police.
Homan took on Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi – the two highest-ranking elected Democrats in America – for their refusal to defend the police in the wake of the civil unrest sweeping across America.
The former cop noted that every police officer condemned the ghoulish actions of the police officers that killed George Floyd, but the police is an institution that received no support from the upper echelon of the Democrat Party.
“No one’s going to justify that, but they’ll stand out on a moment’s notice and defend people that are in here in the country illegally in violation of law, but they won’t stand out there and defend the men and women who leave the safety and security of their home every day … to defend their communities,” Homan added that “They haven’t said a word. “
Homan then took on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her defund the police nonsense.
“She says we should defund the police, and we should all make sacrifices. Okay. So lead by example,” Homan continued.
Homan suggested Ocasio-Cortez “lead by example” and defund the security provided to members of Congress.
“Let’s take the law enforcement officers that provide them 24/7 law enforcement security. If they want to take protection away from the American people in their communities, lead by example,” Homan added.
Homan exposed the ridiculous nature of the defund the police debate by pointing out that – of course – Ocasio-Cortez and other elected officials that supported dismantling the police would never deprive themselves of security.
“Defund your protection first,” Homan continued. “You think they’re going to do it? They’re never going to do it.”
Polls show defunding the police is a fringe position.
Over 60 percent of Americans oppose defunding the police.
But ideas that started on the fringe of the Democrat Party – homosexual marriage being an example – sometimes end up becoming mainstream liberal thought.
