The Democrat Party has gone from calling to “defund” police to now advocating for the outright end of policing in America. 

Earlier this month, House Democrat Rashida Tlaib tweeted out that the United States should no longer have police, prisons, or even the military.

Tlaib, in her infinite wisdom, professed that the aforementioned institutions are incapable of being reformed; however, not once has this Democrat congresswoman offered any viable alternative for police, prisons, and the military. 

A few Democrats have pushed back against calls to do away with law enforcement in America. However, even this isn’t making Tlaib reconsider her shortsighted advocacy for ending policing in America. In fact, Tlaib actually doubled down on this sentiment yesterday, Breitbart News confirms. 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib and the Leftist War Against Policing

On Monday, Tlaib spoke with SiriusXM about her anti-police beliefs. The Democrat congresswoman stated without evidence that so-called “structural racism” is the foundation of policing in the United States. Then, Tlaib lamented the fact that police departments often receive millions of dollars in funding. 

Later, the Michigan Democrat declared that “more training” will not fix the issues that she perceives with law enforcement in America. Tlaib then told SiriusXM that “our white counterparts” are getting in contact with her and calling to support the “reimagining” of police in America. 

Finally, the congresswoman declared that law enforcement “cannot” be the solution to poverty and other “ills” in the United States. 

The Line Between Order and Lawlessness

Time and time again, Democrats like Rep. Tlaib suggest sending in social workers and others to do the jobs of police.

However, there are several reasons why this won’t work. The reality is that social workers are not equipped to handle murderers, rapists, human traffickers, and other hardened criminals that police deal with on a daily basis. 

It’s also a fact that the Democrat lawmakers speaking out against police in America also benefit from their protection. All kinds of law enforcement officials guard Capitol Hill and amazingly, Democrats are not looking to relinquish that protection anytime soon. 

Even Rep. Maxine Waters requested police presence when she went to Minnesota and urged demonstrators to become more confrontational as they riot in the streets.
