Far-left Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), who spent thousands on her own private security last year, continues to champion the “Defund the Police” movement, even though other Democrats are trying to distance themselves from the unpopular policy prior to the midterm elections, according to Breitbart News.
“My colleagues keep telling us to wait. They keep telling us defunding the police and investing in communities won’t work,” Bush tweeted on Saturday. “Well their policies keep ending up with police murdering Black people. Enough patronizing. Listen to the movements that are telling you how to save lives.”
Democrat politicians and corporate media have begun denouncing the politically radioactive movement. A December poll found that a majority (61 percent) of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of crime nationwide, with only 36 percent approving of his ability to manage it. Democrat-run megalopolises across the country are wrestling with rising violent crime and murders.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) condemned Bush for “doubling down” on her support of the movement and criticized the Democrat Party for shirking responsibility for its role in supporting far-left “reform” policies.
“Nobody believes Democrats are going to abandon their pro-crime agenda. Democrats are, and always will be, the party of Defund the Police,” NRCC Spokesman Mike Berg said in a statement.
