Defund the Police? Why Not Defund Politicians?

As law enforcement officers across the country don uniforms and equipment to face another shift, it’s difficult to imagine their heightened sense of defensiveness. Each day, American law enforcement officers assume the duties of protecting us against violent offenders. Yet as a group, law enforcement officers are collectively castigated in the absurd rallying cry of the “Defund the Police.” The people shouting to defund the police seem unable to connect the dots of how those police officers still protect and serve them.

In Afghanistan, 13 U.S. troops were killed on August 26 while serving and protecting the vulnerable. Due to the disastrous decisions of the president, military leaders, and his advisers, lives were lost — yet no cry of “defund the politicians” carries the sympathy of the left and its scribes in the media. While police officers can employ lethal force, it seems all but ignored that many political leaders also wield the power to use lethal force.

As police officers struggle with illegal weapons on the street, President Biden just handed military-grade weapons to the Taliban. It’s one thing for a street thug who hates the police to possess a firearm, but it is an entirely different scenario when America’s sworn enemy receives tens of billions in munitions and weapons from a feckless politician.

If the mayor of Chicago’s cry for gun control contains legitimacy, where are her stern words for Joe Biden arming terrorists? For decades, the Democrat party has vilified gun-manufacturers and gun-owners, only to have its leader provide state-of-the-art weapons to committed terrorists. What’s next for their hypocrisy?

On a related note, one can’t also help but wonder how many of the planeloads of unvetted Afghans will make their way to the Windy City — or other leftist enclaves. Will terrorism once again overwhelm our cities?

About the author

Chris Blackwood

These are the sporadic musings, rants, and ramblings of a middle aged man who isn't exactly thrilled with the direction that America is taking today. I'm extremely opinionated where politics are concerned.

I'm a common sense conservative and a political atheist. I follow politics closely, but I don't believe a word the government tells me. I call it like I see it and I don't mince any words. Life is too short to stay quiet.

Nope, this isn't just a kitty blog anymore, although there will be some of that too . . .
