Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted one thing about defunding the police that ruined Democrats
The latest rallying cry on the Left is “defund the police.”
That’s about to backfire on the Democrats big time.
And it’s all because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted one thing about defunding the police that ruined Democrats.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the ringleaders of the “defund the police” movement.
That shouldn’t be surprising because Ocasio-Cortez once pushed Democrats to embrace abolishing ICE.
In a social media rant, Ocasio-Cortez defended defunding the police and claimed Democrats didn’t have to soften their rhetoric to appeal to rich white people.
“Our job as policymakers is to take the public’s mandate and find + create pockets to advance as much progress as possible. Progress takes a team of different roles. You don’t criticize a pitcher for not being a catcher,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted. “And by the way, the fact that ppl are scrambling to repackage this whole conversation to make it palatable for largely affluent, white suburban ‘swing’ voters again points to how much more electoral & structural power these communities have relative to others.”
But a recent poll showed just 16 percent of Americans supported defunding the police with 65 percent opposed.
Clearly the opposition for defunding the police cuts across all demographics in America.
Ocasio-Cortez is pushing Democrats to adopt a policy that few support.
But that doesn’t mean Democrats will throw in the towel on defunding the police.
In fact, the Minneapolis City Council announced it had a veto proof majority to defund the police.
Right now Republicans – led by President Trump – are united in opposition to defunding the police.
And as long as Ocasio-Cortez and others use racist language to push this radical agenda the oppositions will only continue to grow.
