(Tea Party PAC) – The radical left-wing in this country is a cult that is controlled by the philosophers, politicians, and rich socialists who have a whole bunch of useful idiot mouthpieces in the mainstream media and entertainment industry who are the prophets and evangelists of their sick and twisted religion spreading their message to the masses through voices that, for a reason that defies logic, people actually trust.
We are seeing this on full display right now with singers John Legend and Lizzo, along with actors and actresses like Natalie Portman and Taraji P. Henson, who are advocating in a new letter for the defunding of police departments amid the tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of a law enforcement officer.
Here’s more on this insanity via Breitbart:
The open letter claims that in 2017, $194 billion was spent on the police by America’s various governments even as police have “continued profiling, harassment, terror and killing of Black communities.”
Black communities are living in persistent fear of being killed by state authorities like police, immigration agents, or even white vigilantes who are emboldened by state actors. According to the Urban Institute, in 1977, state and local governments spent $60 billion on police and corrections. In 2017, they spent $194 billion. A 220 percent increase. Despite continued profiling, harassment, terror and killing of Black communities, local and federal decision-makers continue to invest in the police, which leaves Black people vulnerable and our communities no safer.
The letter — which was also singed by Common, Jane Fonda, America Ferrera, Brie Larson, ACLU executive director Anthony Romero — goes on to insist that the money spent on police would be better spent on “building healthy communities,” or to go “to the health of our elders and children, to neighborhood infrastructure, to education, to childcare, to support a vibrant Black future.”
The letter was first put together by a group of individuals known as the Movement 4 Black Lives in partnership with Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.
Cullors recently spoke about the whole Blackout Tuesday stuff we saw earlier this week in an interview with Variety, where she said, “We’re looking at all the black musicians who are showing up and standing up — like Lizzo, who I just had a phone call with yesterday.”
“She’s excited about joining, and [last week] she was up in Minneapolis protesting outside the fourth [police] precinct,” the activist added. “But we need every single musician — black, white, Asian, whoever — to show up right now. We’re not going to change what’s happening between law enforcement and black people until everybody shows up to change it.”
The letter comes as the country is coming to grips with a week mass looting, vandalism, carnage, and killings of police and innocence.
As conservative, liberty-loving Americans, it’s totally fine to think that perhaps the current system of law enforcement largely used by communities all across the country is flawed and in need of a serious overhaul, one that will keep folks more accountable to upholding the Constitution and not cost citizens an arm and a leg in taxes.
However, we do need police officers. And right now, the idea of defunding departments, in the middle of all this civil unrest, is really absurd. The law needs to be enforced. We need cops. The job they do in protecting and serving is a valuable service to our communities.
Do changes need to be made as far as techniques and various aspects of training? Yes. That much seems pretty obvious at this point. Let’s work toward change and not necessarily throwing the baby out with the bath water.
