Democrats Sabotage America’s Police
The bill trying to stop efforts to defund the police saw 117 Democrats shockingly vote against it.
Democrats actually had to nerve to vote against a plan that was trying to prevent the defunding of police.
According to Fox, on Thursday, the House approved a resolution that denounces recent initiatives to defund or eliminate the police, despite facing opposition from a majority of House Democrats.
By a vote of 301 to 119, lawmakers approved a non-binding resolution that acknowledges the commitment and dedication exhibited by local law enforcement officials in ensuring the safety of our communities. The resolution also condemns any demands or movements to defund, disband, dismantle, or abolish the police.
The “no” votes on the measure were exclusively from Democrats, with a collective vote of 87-117 against it. Three Democrats opted to vote “present,” while nearly all Republicans, except for two, voted in favor of the measure.
Representative Jerry Nadler, the leading Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, expressed his dismissal of the bill resolution during the debate. He characterized the resolution as mere empty rhetoric intended solely to gain political advantage, stating, “This resolution is nothing more than empty rhetoric designed to score political points.”
Democrats also expressed dissatisfaction with the language used in the resolution, specifically the portion that attributes the calls for defunding and dismantling local police departments to “leftist activists and progressive politicians” who allegedly promoted resentment toward local law enforcement.
Representative Jerry Nadler highlighted that the resolution failed to address right-wing violence while focusing on leftist violence. He pointed out the omission of any mention of how law enforcement aided in restoring order during the January 6th Capitol riot. Nadler criticized the resolution, stating that it lacked balance and fairness, making it an inadequate measure.
Representative Pramila Jayapal, Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, expressed her objection to the notion that progressive individuals do not support law enforcement solely because they advocate for accountability within their communities. She emphasized the importance of ensuring the safety of Black and Brown individuals, enabling them to walk down the street without fear.
