Do you happen to remember maybe two weeks ago when the city council of Minneapolis, Minnesota cried and screamed that they need to “defund the police”? Do you remember last week when they unanimously voted to do that? Of course, it isn’t that simple. It has to go through committees, and the good people of Minneapolis aren’t going to be left in the lurch without any protection from bad guys anytime soon.
What I thought was funny, was what the city council of Minneapolis, Minnesota did this past week. Realizing they no longer had police protection from a mob, three of the city council folks went out, and with taxpayer money, they hired a private security firm to protect them. Not the city of Minneapolis, not the regular Joe Six Pack who pays their taxes, and votes for these snowflake socialist idiots. But they felt they needed protection from bad guys. Rather than hire police, they hired a private company to do the task for them. What did that cost? Well, the citizens of Minneapolis are now some $63,000 poorer because of the actions of Andrea Jenkins, Phillipe Cunningham, and Alondra Cano.
And what did the three of them have to say about all of it? Well, that’s what I was waiting for. When cornered about it, Jenkins said, “My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” OH! So, now we’re going to blame “white nationalists”? My…how racist, can you get?
As I recall from watching all of the looting and rioting in Minneapolis over the past month, there were a lot of folks screaming, and rioting, and looting, but most of them I wouldn’t have classified as “white nationalists”. Could it be that Jenkins was being singled out because she’s black? Or, could it be that she’s actually being singled out because she’s stupid? Now, both could be true, and both could be false, but my hunch is that the disagreement with her voting to ban the Minneapolis police department has very little to do with the color of her skin, and more to do with the fact she’s not the smartest bulb in the box.
And what strikes me in all of this is the inconsistency of it. After all, you have banned a police department, who, like all departments are there “To protect and serve”, and then when you get rid of them, or at the very least tell the world you have no faith in their ability to protect and serve you, you run to a private security firm because you’re upsetting people enough that they’re threatening you? What on earth did you think would happen when you voted that way?
This is just another example of why liberalism never works. It’s an inconsistent philosophy that never bears fruit, only inconsistency, and lies. And in the end, it’s the people that end up getting hurt. Ms. Jackson, I’m sure will end up ok in all of this. But the people of Minneapolis are going to have to deal with her stupidity, and that of her fellow city council folks for a long time to come. In the meantime, here’s a suggestion: Stay the hell away from Minneapolis, Minnesota unless YOU hire a private security firm.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
