Defund Police

The Democrats continue to urge defunding and dismantling of police departments across the United States. This movement is not relegated to the political fringe, and a number of prominent Democrats, including Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have expressed support for these policies that would threaten the safety of millions:

  • The New York Times: “Majority of the Minneapolis City Council pledges to dismantle the Police Department.”
  • Fox9: “Veto-proof majority of Minneapolis City Council announces support for dismantling MPD”
  • Fox News: “Minneapolis City Council announces veto-proof push to disband police in George Floyd aftermath”

The fact that Democrats continue to embrace this dangerous movement shows how radical and beholden to the extreme left they are.
