We’re back to the hypocrisy sweepstakes, where gestures of virtue are as formalized as kabuki. Humor has been assassinated. An off word at work or school will get you booted to the gallows. This is the graveyard of liberalism, whose once noble ideals have turned spectral and vampiric.
And that, My Fellow Americans, is the sad truth of things in 2020. Democrat politicians ignore or refuse to address the ongoing ambushing police officers, a trend started during Obama’s regime and which has escalated in recent months as more and more Blacks join the insurrection.
Then again, this can’t be considered too surprising. #BlackLivesMatter, #Antifa, and the other splinter groups rioting, burning, and murdering in dozens of cities across America are all Democrats themselves. They’re the constituencies of these politicians. One can hardly expect those Democrat politicians to put their jobs at risk by speaking out against them.
Leave to the Dems to increase funding to USPS and seek defunding of law enforcement agencies now, since Donald Trump is President. And yes! It’s all and only about Americans having elected Donald Trump.
Yes, now and now only! Obama’s Regime tried to close 3,700 post offices in the lead up to 2012 elections and the only complaints from Democrats were about the loss of union jobs – not one peep about the election or “destroying Democracy.” Not. one!
And law enforcement spending? They were perfectly OK with Obama demanding an almost 100% increase in the federal dollars used to subsidize local law enforcement agencies hiring of additional officers.
Yeah, leave it to the Democrats to be so filled with hatred and so self-centered as act this way.
Yes, the wolves are in the fold. They came in wearing sheep’s’ clothing while we manned the gates, ready for an enemy not of our own blood.
And wolves in sheep’s clothing is exactly what those “moderate” Liberals who engage in logical-seeming, safe-sounding apologetics for #BlackLivesMatter and #DefundThePolice are. They are simply trying to convince people that “nobody wants to remove law enforcement. They just want to make things better for everyone.”
OK, to be fair, I might be giving some of them too much credit. Some number of these sorts are probably Useful Idiots rather than wolves in sheep’s clothing.
One need only look to the rest of the rhetoric and manifestos of those who want to reduce police presence to see that all these apologetics are lying or deluded. The goal, never particularly hidden, is to curtail, reduce, or largely eliminate law enforcement in America.
And none of the above even takes into account that their supposed premise is already long-proven to be unsustainable.
An Unsustainable Premise For The Big Lie
One of, possibly the key, pillars of #DefundThePolice’s agenda is that Law Enforcement should not “be tasked” with dealing with situations that are better handled by- and more clearly under the purview of social services. And, honestly, this is very logical-sounding; it’s completely intuitive. It’s also so completely unsustainable as to be false.
I hail from a state where this was already put in place decades ago. It failed. It didn’t take that long before, due to the dangers encountered, social services – Health & Rehabilitative Services (HRS) in that state – refused to send operatives out on most calls without a police escort.
Simply put, after a few were injured and at least one killed, HRS decided rightly that responding to such calls was not really their job since they didn’t have the training to deal with what they might encounter.
Oh yeah! The Lamestream, ever-Anti-American, anti-White media Dutifully covers the various race- and class-riots that have been happening over the last two months or so – covers them up as “mostly peaceful protests” that is.
A case in point being their praise for- and whitewashing of – irony, it’s strong in these ones – of the Wall of Moms who “protected” the “peaceful protesters” from federal law enforcement against who had to deployed to several major US cities to mitigate the damages and death tolls.
Sure, it’d seem like a utopia ,,, if you tipped your head and squinted or wore blinders so that you didn’t see all the chaos, crime, and race riots. A nation with little or no law enforcement isn’t a nation anymore; it’s just a dystopian anarchy with no real future, which may be what the Left and their Blacks want.
One thing though – while the cartoon describes the whole #DefundThePolice movement as a Far Left political position, it’s now the mainstream position of the Democrats.
