(Tea Party PAC) – President Trump’s son, Trump Jr., has proven time and time again that the apple does not fall far from the tree when it comes to his willingness to strap on his armor and ride into battle against the wildly insane forces of liberalism infecting our culture with their cancerous worldview.
On many occasions, Donald Trump Jr. has dismantled the attacks and false narratives progressed by the left-wing media — also known as a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party — and he’s done this once again in the midst of the chaos that has erupted across the country due to violent protests concerning the death of George Floyd by police officers.
Many Democrats are suggesting that local communities defund their police departments as a result of the incident and the riots that have ensued. This, of course, would mean there would be less police officers on the streets to protect communities from opportunistic criminals who would no doubt have a field day with less cops to worry about.
Trump Jr. has a suggestion for those Democrats supportive of this measure put their money where their mouths are and get rid of their own personal security details as a first step toward that goal.
Here’s more from BizPacReview:
“We all want to stop police brutality, but cutting funding to police departments like so many Dems want to do doesn’t stop abuses,” Trump Jr. tweeted Monday, adding that “it just makes communities (particularly impoverished communities) less safe.”
“Will those same anti-cop Dems call for their security details to be cut?” he asked.

There’s a little thing in modern pop culture called a “mic drop moment.” For those of you who might not be hip to the new lingo out there — boy, that dates me, right? — one of these “moments” is what happens when someone completely blows someone out of the water by dropping a massive, explosive truth or challenge.
Which is precisely what happened with Trump Jr.
His challenge came as Democrats unveiled the Justice in Policing Act on Monday, sweeping legislation aimed at limiting some of the legal protections for police while increasing their accountability. The proposal, delivered amid a grandstanding spectacle of lawmakers sporting traditional African Kente cloth, does not include plans for police departments to be defunded, however.
But that does not mean the more progressive members on the Party’s left have not been vocally advocating the stripping of police across the nation.
“The reduction of our NYPD budget and defunding a $6 billion budget, that costs us books in the hands of our children and costs us very badly needed investment in NYCHA and public housing,” New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed during a virtual debate on Spectrum News.
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents the state of Minnesota where the protests over the death of George Floyd began, took things a step further and supported calls to “dismantle” the Minneapolis Police Department because it is “rotten to the root.”
“We need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. Because here’s the thing, there’s a cancer,” she said at a Minneapolis rally on Saturday. “The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root, and so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer, and we allow for something beautiful to rise, and that reimagining allows us to figure out what public safety looks like for us.”
While a whole lot of the more radical individuals in the Democratic Party have been practically leaping with joy at the prospect of stripping police of their enforcement power and jobs through defunding them, others have not been so quick to jump on board with this particular solution.
Presumptive nominee Joe Biden, the same guy who recently stated that if a black person doesn’t vote for him over Trump, they “ain’t black,” released a statement that puts a little distance between himself and the current defund movement.
“I don’t support defunding the police,” the former vice president told “CBS Evening News” on Monday. “I support conditioning federal aid to police based on whether or not they meet certain basic standards of decency, honorableness and, in fact, are able to demonstrate they can protect the community, everybody in the community.”
Guess who else is trying to avoid being tied to this awful idea? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“So there are all kinds of ways that we can come at this,” she said. “We want to work with our police departments. There are many who take pride in their work, and we want to be able to make sure the focus is on them.”
“The public sentiment could not be clearer: we need to make some transformative change. Not incremental, transformative change,” Pelosi added.
This clip of Pelosi trying to answer a question about whether or not she supports the "defund the police" push is some straight up hostage footage.

This is a no-brainer.
Instead of defunding police, there needs to be efforts to change the training that law enforcement receives and an investigation into police culture to see what kind of positive changes need to be instituted to help those in these much needed positions not become corrupted by the authority they wield.
Getting rid of cops will not stop racism. Racism is a heart issue. Yes, there need to be laws to protect people, which we have. What’s not needed is more laws. What’s needed are more changed hearts, something that can’t be done without the help of God.
