Will the Left [sic] Pay a Price for “Defund the Police” Madness?

by Buck Sexton

“It would be hard to think of an idea more manifestly idiotic than ‘defund the police.’ For such a slogan to become the mainstream rallying cry of Left-wing community organizers and media elites during a stunning rise in murders and homicides nationwide would seem unfathomable … But that is exactly what happened last year. When the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement rose in June of 2020 in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, Democrats saw it as an opportunity. America was already reeling from COVID-19, and there was a tremendous national anxiety to exploit. To mobilize the Democrats into the streets during a nationwide pandemic lockdown, the institutional Left, woke corporations, and the hysterical media embraced the cynical lie that police in America are systemically racist and murder unarmed black men routinely and without consequence.” [editor’s note: It would have been a great idea, but of course they didn’t mean it – TLK] (07/21/21)
