All throughout last year, and even now, numerous leftist Democrats have called for the defunding of police. And despite what Joe Biden claims, local Democrats have done just that. What has been the result? A massive spike in crime in major cities across America.
But it’s pretty clear that the defund movement is wildly unpopular with Americans. Every poll conducted has shown Americans want more cops and more funding. Even black Americans (who are often targeted by these radical activists) want more cops—at a higher percentage than other groups.
Shockingly, though, there are still Democrats who demand cops are defunded, leaving Americans powerless against criminals. One of these people is socialist Cori Bush. An ally to disgraced AOC and Ilhan Omar, she consistently talks about taking money from cops and spending it on welfare programs.
She was recently exposed for spending over $70,000 on private security. Hypocrite much? She wants to deprive you of cops, but can pay for her own protection? When confronted on the issue, this is what she said.
“I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life,” she told CBS News on Thursday. “And I have too much work to do, there are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that.”
“So if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend ten more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work, so suck it up,” Bush, a supporter of the “defund” the police movement, also said in the interview. “And defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.” [Source: Just the News]
Is this woman a complete idiot? She is so spoiled and entitled that she won’t even apologize for the fact that is paying for private security, while depriving cities of cops. In fact, she thinks she deserves to be able to spend “$200,000” on private security, because of the “work” she is doing.
And what work is that? Taking cops off the streets and spreading poverty through rising crime and government welfare programs.
For that, she thinks she deserves praise from us, not criticism. She even cruelly tells Americans—who are suffering from the crime surge and other challenges—to “suck it up.”
Does this woman even think before she talks? She is an elected official, selected by voters to represent their needs and concerns. But instead of showing a shred of humility for the position they put her in, she rudely insults Americans.
This is beyond hypocrisy. This woman can’t even see how disgusting and evil her stance is. She is blind to the fact that her policies are directly hurting Americans—and they will only contribute to communities’ problems.
Not that she seems to care. For Bush, like so many other Democrats, it’s all about the wealth and fame she can accumulate. She’s not really interested in a “social safety net” or whatever garbage she is selling.
This is only about her prestige and inflated sense of self-importance.
