The insane “defund the police” movement backfired faster than most mindless liberal policies, with the nation seeing a historic crime surge in 2020 that has continued to the present.
Just as they’re trying to rewrite the narrative on COVID in front of our very eyes, Democrats are also doing the same with “defund the police.”
Last night at the State of the Union, Biden drew bipartisan applause for his calls to fund the police. “We should all agree: The answer is not to defund the police, the answer is to fund the police,” he said to a standing ovation. “Fund with the resources and training they need to protect our communities.”
Indeed we all should agree on this – but it’s his party that didn’t get that memo. Numerous major cities defunded their police departments in 2020, including Minneapolis, New York City, Chicago, Portland, Austin, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, and Pennsylvania. Law and order has further been eroded on top of that by the various Soros-backed prosecutors nationwide refusing to prosecute countless crimes or deny bail to dangerous suspects.
It’s only now that the violent failure that is the “defund” experiment is impossible to ignore that Democrats are trying to switch sides in the culture war, but they can’t run from their past comments.
The Republican National Committee put together a compilation of all the calls to “defund the police” that came out of the left in 2020 – and there are probably more than you remember.
The “defund” damage control has been an effort from the Biden administration that began last year.
Previously, Jen Psaki tried to argue that “defund the police” was actually a Republican slogan because they opposed Biden’s wasteful $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which happened to include funding for state and local governments that could be used for local police. Of course, the reason Republicans opposed that bill had to do with everything else contained within it, nor did their opposition to the bill result in a cut to police spending.
