Democrats just made a giant mistake that will blow up in their faces this November
Democrats are hell-bent on ousting Donald Trump from office.
The Left leveraged every power center in American life that they control from sports to Hollywood and from the media to academia in support of this crusade.
But Democrats just made a giant mistake that will blow up in their faces this November.
Led by Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats around the country are adopting the Black Lives Matter rallying cry of defunding the police.
Cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Minneapolis are putting this radical agenda into place.
Seattle was the latest Democrat-run city to attack the police.
The City Council voted to slash the police budget and eliminate up to 100 officers from the force.
Fox News reports:
The 7-1 vote comes despite objections from the city’s police chief, mayor and the Seattle Police Officers’ Guild.
The plan would ultimately slash funding to the department but not the 50% some had sought. Seattle currently has around 1,400 police officers, and the current plan would see about 100 cut. It also cut the police department’s $400 million budget by about $3 million, according to KOMO.
Councilmember Kshama Sawant was the sole “no” vote because she felt the proposals didn’t go far enough, while Debora Juarez abstained, according to MyNorthWest.com.
Defunding the police is wildly unpopular.
Polls show the overwhelming majority of Americans – including significant numbers of black Americans – oppose this effort.
President Trump is making the argument that, if elected, President Joe Biden will serve as a tool for the radical Left and all of America will look like the Democrat-run cities that now look like warzones as Democrat Mayors allow Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters to loot and pillage.
The Seattle City Council voting to defund the police and fire 100 officers will only play into the President’s hands.
