Rashida Tlaib, the resident racist Democrat Representative from Michigan is facing intense criticism after calling for "no more policing" in the wake of the accidental fatal shooting of Daunte Wright by a law enforcement officer. "It wasn't an accident. Policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression and violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can't be reformed," Tlaib wrote on Twitter on Monday night.
Hillary Clinton VP running mate in her failed 2016 Presidential run, Sen. Tim Kaine, was one of the first Democrats to distanced himself from her stance, "We definitely need reforms in the space of qualified immunity, but I am not in the camp that says, you know, we should disrespect police. We should reform police where police are necessary," Kaine said on Tuesday. Represtative Abigail Spanberger, D-VA recently blasted progressives for their "defund the police" rhetoric, claiming that it nearly cost her her race in November.
Republican congressional colleagues were quick to push back. "Insane. 'No more policing,'" Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wrote on Twitter. "It doesn’t get more explicit than this that Democrats want to abolish the police." "If you don’t want bad guys in jail or police protecting our cities, why don’t we start with your district and see how it goes?" wrote Rep. Ken Buck, R-CO on Twitter on Tuesday.
In a statement, Brooklyn Center Police said officers stopped an individual shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday. After determining the driver had an outstanding warrant, police tried to arrest him. But the driver reentered the vehicle and drove away, police said. An officer fired at the vehicle, striking Wright. Police said the vehicle traveled several blocks before crashing into another vehicle. A female passenger sustained non life-threatening injuries. Brooklyn Center Police did not immediately identify Wright or disclose race, but the liberal news media wasted no time in fanning the flames of civil unrest by identifying the police officer as a “white female" officer Kim Potter.
Minneapolis erupted in looting and riots late Sunday after Wright was shot by a law enforcement officer during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minn., just 10 miles from where George Floyd died while resisting arrest for allegedly passing counterfeit money. Medical examiners in that ongoing trial have testified that lethal doses of Fentanyl and Crystal Methamphetamine were found in Floyd's body. Floyd also had a history of heart disease.
Tlaib, a member of the so-called progressive "Squad” has latched onto the slogan "defund the police" before. "Too many folks are confused when they hear we need to #DefundPolice. I ask you to engage in this debate with an openness. There is real validity in dismantling the current racist system that has led to this pain," she wrote on Twitter in May 2020 after the death of George Floyd.
The liberal media is trying to set the narrative that such statements are dividing the Democratic Party, when the truth is, Tlaib and her racist cohorts ARE the (new) Democratic Party.
