It’s actually painful for me to write this, but fairness and honesty require me to do so. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY14) aka AOC aka Baby Shart has a valid point. While her and the others of our domestic and racial enemies’ “Defund The Police” screeds and demands are vile, dangerous, and a threat to the People of our nation, she’s right to point our the smoke and mirrors bullshit, virtue signaling, response by DeBlasio and NYC City Council.
“Defunding police means defunding police,” the Democrat said in a statement Tuesday to the Gotham Gazette, Fox News reported. “It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.
“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” she continued. “It does not mean hiring more police officers while cutting more than $800 million from NYC schools.— Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Yeah, her underlying desires being antithetical to all that’s right in the nation doesn’t mean she’s wrong to call out NYC government if their supposed response to those desires was nothing more that playing Three Card Monty with budget buckets and official naming conventions.
