Black Lives Matter has morphed from a movement whose original purpose (supposedly) was to bring attention to police brutality against the black community into a full on Marxist effort to scrap police forces nationwide. Several cities have already bent the knee to the BLM crazies and scaled back the funding of their police departments with disastrous results.
New York City, for example, has slashed nearly $1.5 billion from its annual police budget. New York Marxists were outraged that Mayor Bill De Blasio refused to defund the police completely. Squad member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted the proposed budget saying it didn’t go far enough.
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the self-described Democratic Socialist said in a press release about the budget deal between the City Council and Mayor de Blasio.
“It does not mean counting cuts in overtime as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways. The fight to defund policing continues,” she said.
“If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues,” she said.
It’s worth noting that murder rates in New York City have skyrocketed the last few weeks.
Marxists have also successfully pressured Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to cut the city’s police budget by $150 million.
Naturally, the move failed to please the BLM Marxists in Los Angeles.
Dr. Melina Abdullah, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, told a crowd of activists that Los Angeles is “home of the most murderous law enforcement offices in the country” and encouraged the crowd to shout “fuck Eric Garcetti” — the city’s mayor who has pledged to slash $150 million from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
“Sometimes people like your mayor, who I know likes to get in pictures with a lot of y’all — ” she began as someone from the crowd shouted “fuck Eric Garcetti!”
“Say it again,” Abdullah said as the crowd repeated the phrase and cheered.
“People like your mayor and your police chief want to utter the name George Floyd as if the murders happened in Minneapolis. They want to utter the name Sean Reed as if the murders only happen in Indianapolis,” she continued.
“They want to say Breonna Taylor as if those killings are confined to Louisville, but Los Angeles is the home of the most murderous law enforcement offices in the country,” she said to cheers, adding that the city is filled with “liberal white supremacists.”
“As we talk about white supremacists terrorists like Donald Trump — every time we say ‘fuck Donald Trump,’ we gotta say ‘fuck Eric Garcetti,’” she added.
Minneapolis, the city which bore the brunt of the Marxist-inspired violence after George Floyd was killed, took things one step further and voted to disband its police force.
The same city council members who voted to disband their city’s police department, thereby leaving average citizens to the tender mercies of the city’s criminal element, have hired private security to protect themselves.
Democrat presidential candidate Joe “Joementia” Biden has gone on record as saying he does not support defunding the police. Joementia’s denial rings hollow, however, as literally everyone around him has fully embraced the Marxist movement to defund the police. Joementia recently attended a fundraiser hosted by singer John Legend, a man who has stated his support for defunding the police on several occasions. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a top adviser for Joementia’s campaign.
It seems fairly likely that a President Joementia would be pressured to institute “defund the police” as a national policy in short order.
What would America look like under an ultra-radical, Marxist Joementia presidency? The Trump campaign released a devastating ad yesterday answering that exact question.
Joe Biden’s allies are doing everything they can to Defund the Police.
If you call 911, who will answer the phone?

This latest ad comes on the heels of another damning ad put out by the Trump campaign that attacked Joementia and the Democrats on their support of Marxist Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots.
I said last week that the Trump campaign had signaled that it would spend the next few months laying the violence plaguing Democrat-run cities directly at the feet of Joementia and the Democrats. Yesterday’s ad continues that devastating line of attack.
