It should come as absolutely no surprise whatsoever that the ultra-leftists are out in full force once again, albeit with an even more aggressive “objective” than last summer.
Last summer, it was all about “defunding the police,” in spite of the skyrocketing murder rates that emerged as a result, ironically in Democrat-“led” cities.
This spring, apparently, it is now all about “abolishing the police,” which would naturally lead to a total defunding. As well as total chaos in American society.
And, in what should really come as a surprise to no one, some of the most fired up “abolitionists” are already in Congress, with their Twitter platforms on the ready to spew incredibly irresponsible, arguably insurrectionary content across the “progressive” platform.
For instance, Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat Representative from Michigan and a full-time member of the infamous “Squad,” has long been known for her hatred of police, as well as her rather obvious bias against individuals of the Jewish faith.
And, since Tlaib is apparently not only the judge, jury, and executioner, but she is also apparently superhuman since she tweets as though she had directly observed every last second of the horrific situation that unfolded.
“It wasn’t an accident … Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
“Government funded murder.” Wow. That’s quite the incendiary statement.
Hey, Dorsey, could you wake up briefly from one of your endless (and endlessly self-involved) “silent retreats” in a nation known for its brutal dictatorship, yet your massive tourism revenues help keep imprisoned there in the first place?
After all, if Twitter is so concerned with “safety,” it would seem that the platform should have long since flagged a post or two (or 1,000) of the Squad’s.
Of course, the abolition party wouldn’t be complete without AOC chiming in, ranting away about the alleged absence of an accident while simultaneously proclaiming the entirety of the U.S. justice system is apparently beyond horrific (and apparently these Socialists have never bothered to look into how “justice” is executed in China …).
“Daunte Wright’s killing was not a random, disconnected ‘accident’ – it was the repeated outcome of an indefensible system that grants impunity for state violence, rewards it w/ endlessly growing budgets at the cost of community investment, & targets those who question that order … Cameras, chokehold bans, ‘retraining’ funds, and similar reform measures do not ultimately solve what is a systemic problem. That system will find a way – killings happen on camera, people are killed in other ways, retraining grows $ while often substituting for deeper measure.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
“State violence.” “Government funded murder.” Noticing a pattern here? Seems to be a rather open call to arms to abolish the police in any way possible, including by vigilante force.
And as for the system supposedly “finding a way?” Happy to hear any original thoughts you may happen to have AOC. And, since such a wait may be admittedly extensive, time to carry on to the self-imagined King himself, Mr. Obama.
Of course, he appears to have originated this entire discussion by “reimaging” law enforcement in the United States.
“The fact that this could happen even as the city of Minneapolis is going through the trial of Derek Chauvin and reliving the heart-wrenching murder of George Floyd indicates not just how important it is to conduct a full and transparent investigation, but also just how badly we need to reimagine policing and public safety in this country.” [Source: Fox News]
Great, Obama. Care to share how such “reimagining” may take place? Or is that code for “abolition?”
“[Michelle and I] empathize with the pain that Black mothers, fathers and children are feeling after yet another senseless tragedy … [we will] continue to … confront historical inequities and bring about nationwide changes that are so long overdue.” [Source: Fox News]
Obama, being Obama, was also sure to ramble on about how concerned he and Michelle supposedly are with the plight of various individuals, though their concern falls a little flat when it originated from a multimillion dollar mansion (one of a few) obtained through shady political dealings.
In terms of the local governance, Mike Elliott, the Mayor of Brooklyn City, Minnesota, has suggested disarming police in the wake of the latest tragedy, which is apparently the only concrete (yet disastrous) suggestion made by anyone.

Well then, Mr. Elliott. How about you be the first to pull someone over without any self-protection? We’re waiting …
