Democrats are only okay with violence that puts other people at risk.
They aren’t willing to actually stand up for their beliefs.
A top Democrat instantly destroyed a protest when it threatened his own safety.
The Mayor of Portland, Oregon, Ted Wheeler, is unsurprisingly a Democrat who commutes to work on a bicycle.
When the protests came Wheeler tried to give the protesters what they wanted.
“Institutions fail and deny [black people] their basic rights and, all too often, even their very lives … the murder of George Floyd underscored the day to day experience of being black in America.” Wheeler said.
He also cut $16 million from the Portland police budget.
“Never in my life would I have imagined that we or any government would be able to cut that much significant resources out of a police budget,” Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty who voted to cut the police budget.
However those cuts were not enough for members of the Black Live Matter movement who wanted $50 million cut from the police budget.
They tried to set up another autonamous zone like the one that they set up in Seattle but this time they tried to set it up outside the mayor’s apartment.
It didn’t go too well for the protesters.
“Hundreds of protesters marking the death of George Floyd established the autonomous zone between two Portland city blocks on Thursday night. Unlike Seattle’s similar autonomous zone, Portland’s effort only lasted hours before police were videotaped dismantling the improvised zone on Thursday morning.” The Washington Examiner reported.
Portland police were to stop their mayor from being bothered.
“I do not want an autonomous zone set up in Portland,” Wheeler said. “I’m watching what’s happening in Seattle, and I’m not impressed. I think it’s a distraction from the larger movement, and the movement is justice for black people.”
Black Lives Matter is trying to break down the current structures of power. Their cry of “defund the police” would make it impossible for the police to protect anyone.
A man was shot in Seattle’s autonomous zone and the police are having trouble responding.
No mayor wants that right outside his door.
The Democrats only want the police defunded in parts of the city were they don’t live.
They turned a blind eye to the violence towards police during the riots, they’ve given in the protesters demands but they still expect the police to come save them when they dial 911.
The Democrats aren’t ever really going to defund the police entirely.
Defunding the police really means getting rid of the police in lower class communities which will only increase flight away from cities to suburbia.
