Derek Hunter, I know. You read that headline and think I’ve gone crazy. But hear me out.
I’m not calling for closing police departments; I’m calling for a one time, short period where police, firefighters, and emergency personnel call in sick. These rich liberal elites who live in double-gated communities with armed security are demanding funding for police be redirected and police replaced by social workers, so let them see how it would go. More importantly, let the mob see how it would go.
People like Jane Fonda, John Legend, Megan Rapinoe, even the head of the ACLU, all signed a letter demanding the end of policing. Let them have it.
“Policing and militarization overwhelmingly dominate the bulk of national and local budgets. In fact, police and military funding has increased every single year since 1973, and at the same time, funding for public health decreased every year,” the letter reads.
Every word in that is a lie. But who cares? Leftists aren’t bound by truth and have no fear of their lies being exposed. They’re interested in keeping people angry to motivate them to vote for Democrats. It’s evil but effective.
Elected Democrats lie to the public about how unarmed young black men are being murdered by police with impunity. In 2019, the Washington Post (which, judging by the tone of their coverage, doesn’t bother checking their own Pulitzer Prize winning database on the subject) shows 41 unarmed people were killed by police across the country. That’s like a holiday weekend in Chicago, but hardly an epidemic.
Since Democrats live off the race game, of those 41 unarmed people killed by police, 9 were black and 19 were white. Does that seem systemic to you?
Whatever, the people who believe the lie believe the lie and no amount of truthful data, even from their own newspaper, is going to change that. Just like the death of Tony Timpa at the hands of Dallas police in the exact same manner as George Floyd didn’t even rate a mention in the national media because he was white and, therefore, not useful to the liberal narrative. Floyd’s killing on the other hand is too useful to let go.
That’s why Joe Biden is planning on attending Floyd’s funeral. He doesn’t really care. He never knew the guy, but it’s an opportunity for him. Nothing more. Biden shouldn’t go. It will damage the country by turning a memorial service into the Paul Wellstone funeral and squandering whatever goodwill and unity the country had before the riots. Biden doesn’t care. None of them really care. Democratic congressman from New York, Eliot Engel, admitted as much when he was caught on an open mic this week telling an organizer, “If I didn’t have a primary, I wouldn’t care.”
None of them care. Floyd was killed in a Democratic city, in a Democratic state, yet they’re blaming Republicans and President Trump. Do you really think they’re going to be bothered by hijacking another funeral? They don’t give a damn about that any more than they give a damn about the black-owned businesses and lives their riots have destroyed. As long as they vote the way they’ve voted the last 60 years and in the numbers they voted in 2008, they do not care what, where, or who gets ruined.
If people are capable of doing these disgusting things and can still sleep, they are sociopaths desperate for power.
Honestly, if you told any of these mobs around the country that they could bring George Floyd back from the dead or get Donald Trump out of office, George wouldn’t stand any more of a chance than he did the night he was killed. Many of them wouldn’t even know who you were talking about. They’re that sick.
So give these people exactly what they want – no police. Make it New York or LA, pick a couple of days, a busy couple of days, and plan the sick-out. Give the city and community a heads up and see how they react. If these feckless mayors and city councils don’t immediately change their tune, allow officers to do their jobs and, most importantly, defend themselves from mutants and militants trying to hurt and kill them. Let them have the city.
The truth is all these people – the elected and the mob – take comfort in knowing the police are there when they need them. When something happens to them, even the most violent trust-fund ANTIFA mutant liberal will call for them. Don’t be there.
If they ever let it happen, it wouldn’t last more than a night or two. It’d be a horrible night or two, but clearly Democrats have no problem with that since they’ve cheered their Brownshirts terrorizing citizens for more than a week now. A little dose of their own medicine, or even just the threat of it, might force a little dose of common sense into the vacant space between their ears left empty by its absence when they became liberals. If not, well, at least people will get a lot of “free” stuff.
