If there is one thing in this world that I can’t stand, it’s hypocrisy.
There’s a special circle in hell reserved for those who live by the line “do as I say, not as I do.”
I think the reason that hypocrisy is such a problem for me is because it exposes a person’s selfish nature.
Hypocrites expect people to live one way while turning a blind eye to themselves living another way entirely. In the mind of a hypocrite, they come up with only apply to those they think are lesser or lower on some kind of imagined hierarchy.
It’s angering, and it’s why I’ve made it a mission to call out hypocrisy wherever I come across it.
However, in my line of work, it’s something I have to often do on a daily basis just to stay ahead of the hypocrisy tsunami that is always bearing down on us from the Left.
It’s always the people that yell loudest that are the biggest offenders, too.
I could sit here for DAYS and give examples…
AOC pushing a Green New Deal while rolling around in gas-guzzling SUVs with her assistants on her way to eat hamburgers (which she wants to ban) at high end restaurants…
The Democrats calling the Right crazy for believing the 2020 election had issues after spending three years and millions of dollars on a phony Russian collusion conspiracy…
Leftists condoning and supporting a year of race riots, even bailing out violent protesters, only to turn around and condemn the Capitol Riot as the worst thing our nation has ever seen…
But there’s a different topic to focus on today…and it’s just as egregious.
The Hypocrite Democrats In A City Near You
Hypocritical mayors of Democrat-run cities have been funneling MILLIONS of dollars in taxpayer money to fund their OWN private security details while also spearheading the effort to defund their city’s police departments, cutting funding for the safety and protection of their own citizens.
At least twenty mayors—TWENTY!—from cities that have called for or followed through with defunding their very own police departments have private security details paid for by their city’s taxpayers to the tune of MILLIONS of dollars a year.
For example, San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced plans to redirect $120 million away from the police department to a combination of new and existing programs. Meanwhile, her office has funneled a whopping $2.6 million in taxpayer dollars to protect her and her home during 2020 alone—a number that will be sure to go up in 2021.
But Breed isn’t alone…
Chicago, one of the most violent cities in America, has slashed funding for its police department while also preventing the underfunded police force from actually enforcing the law. But while that effort continues, the city has spent nearly $3.4 million in taxpayer dollars in 2020 to protect “unnamed city officials,” with racist Mayor Lori Lightfoot at the top of the heap.
You think that’s it?
Baltimore, Maryland, America’s second deadliest city behind St. Louis, MS, has spent a knee-bending $3.6 million in 2020 in taxpayer funds to protect Mayor Brandon Scott and two other officials during 2020…all while calling to defund the police.
High In Their Ivory Towers
This is outrageous.
Defunding the police creates more problems than it solves.
Taking authority away from officers is essentially taking away their ability to enforce laws. They can’t arrest people… they can’t restrain people…they can’t carry out their jobs at all!
The police are handcuffed! They can’t protect the public if their own bosses don’t allow them to do the job they swore to carry out.
Who’s being harmed here?
Criminals? Or the innocent people of these cities left to the designs of criminals that have no fear of the police?
Meanwhile, we have these mayors sitting back in their ivory towers calling to defund their own cities police departments, putting their citizens at extreme risk.
This is the real crime…
And it’s high time that this hypocrisy was called out and addressed.
Luckily, there are watchdog groups out there to help us weed out the hypocrites, which brings us to a whole different round of questions:
Will it matter?
Has the damage been done?
Is this something we can come back from?
Only time will tell…
What we do know is that these mayors need to be shut down – immediately. They need to be called out and held accountable for thinking that THEIR safety is paramount to the safety of their citizens.
We’re all in this together, folks—but that’s something the Left doesn’t seem to understand.
