Just as rioters and looters wreak havoc across numerous American cities, Democrats have gone out of their way to make it worse. They have applauded and supported these criminals, while making it impossible for police to do their jobs. In many cities, they have been defunded, with leftists calling for some departments to be abolished. Now, a Democratic senator has taken a step further, calling for cops to be totally disarmed.
It’s not hard to find out which side the Democrats are on in the war against law and order. Pretending to care about minorities in the United States, the left has thrown all its weight behind a group that seeks to overthrow our entire country. They have called radical anarchists and rioters “peaceful protesters” and have instead punished police departments.
The one group dedicated to protecting all Americans has been attacked, vilified, ignored, and shut out. With each passing week, we learn about more cops being murdered by left-wing protesters, only for the media to celebrate their deaths.
How has the Democratic candidate for president responded? Joe Biden refuses to back or defend our police. He has “condemned” violence in a pathetic attempt to blame it all on Trump. But only President Trump has condemned the riots and looting and demanded local leaders to uphold law and order.
Recently, after two cops were targeted for assassination in LA, Joe Biden called for the banning of “weapons of war,” a vague non-term used by radical gun control advocates to take all forms of firearms from Americans. Now, a Democratic senator is going the extra mile, demanding that cops—already hated and hunted by leftists—should have no means to defend themselves or us.
Sen. Ed Markey said Monday that U.S. police officers must uniformly be disarmed of “weapons of war,” which according to the senator, include “tear gas, rubber and plastic bullets, and bean bag rounds.”
The “No Tear Gas or Projectiles Act” moves to ban the use of “riot control agents and kinetic impact projectiles” by federal, state, and local law enforcement officers.
The bill would also create a civil penalty for authorities who use the prohibited materials despite the ban, and limit federal funding to state and local government entities that do not ban the listed items. [Source: Just the News]
This genius once again pushed the lie that rioters burning down your cities are “peaceful protesters” wrongly attacked by police. Markey is making police officers—who swore to keep us safe—out to be the enemies. His idea of “weapons of war” including basic crowd control tools like tear gas, rubber and plastic bullets, and bean bag rounds.
Really Markey? If bean bag rounds are weapons of war, what isn’t a weapon of war?
Should cops just go around carrying feathers? Maybe butterfly nets? Yeah, that will stop the rioters who throw Molotov cocktails at innocent bystanders!
What the Democrat is proposing is a bill that will strip cops of any means to defend themselves and others. Basically, he wants cops defenseless against wild animals that seek to destroy our communities.
The real goal, of course, is just to abolish police officers entirely. If they can’t even use non-lethal tools to end conflicts, then they can’t do anything else.
That’s what Markey—and the rest of the Democratic Party—want in the end. Because they stupidly believe this is what Americans want.
They ignore the fact that the vast majority of Americans—including 83% of black voters—want more cops on the streets. Democrats also ignore the fact that Americans never supported these riots and are growing more and more angry with the left.
Blue cities are suffering because they’ve been voting for these idiots for years. But they’re walking up. The rest of the country is not stupid enough to embrace Markey’s suicidal plan.
And come November, the Democrats will be in for a very rude awakening.
