(Natural News) One by one, all across America, mayors and other public officials are pushing to slash funding for their police departments as a virtue signal that “black lives matter.” And in many cases, they are doing this in direct response to Twitter mobs that are demanding some kind of government action in response to the George Floyd saga.
Rather than carefully considering how major policy decisions like this might impact their actual constituents, these corrupt and spineless politicians are instead bowing to the demands of random social media trolls who are now dictating the future of America with screams of #defundthepolice, this being one of the top trending hashtags in recent days.
The Minneapolis City Council, as perhaps the most prominent example, recently pledged 9-3 to not only defund but completely dismantle its police force. And because this 9-3 vote represents a veto-proof majority, Mayor Jacob Frey has no say in the matter, despite disagreeing with the mob about this one.
According to some liberals, even just calling the police “comes from a place of privilege,” which means that it, too, has to go. In order to stamp out “systemic racism” in the new Disunited States of America, police officers can never be relied upon to serve and protect or keep the peace.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti appears to be on board with this new “progressive” line of thinking, which is why he recently decided to trim $150 million from the city’s law enforcement budget. And once again, this came about not because Los Angeles voters called for it, but because Twitter mobsters demanded it.
“The New York City’s politburo, Comrade de Blasio, also promised to make substantial cuts to the NYPD budget,” writes Simon Black for Sovereign Man. “Other local governments across the country, from San Francisco to Philadelphia to Baltimore, are considering similar moves … And Congress has a stack of bills that it’s furiously moving forward.”
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, talks about how all of this left-wing terrorism will win reelection for President Trump:
Who holds the most power in steering society in 2020? Twitter users, and especially those with blue checkmarks
Perhaps the biggest irony in all of this is the fact that the very same people who have been screaming the loudest about how the Trump presidency “threatens democracy” are now themselves completely dismantling the democratic process and replacing it with what amounts to Twitter mob rule.
What ever happened to actual voting through legitimate means? Have we fallen so low as a country that public policy is now crafted by people who block traffic, destroy historical monuments, burn down local businesses, and go on 280-character Twitter rants?
It would appear as though registered voters are no longer in charge of the political process, and that those who make the most noise on social media are now deciding where our country goes next. If you can effectively scare a weak-willed politician into ending the police, then you now hold more power than the entire voting collective.
Even Mayor Frey, who was praised by the left for faking a weep-fest in front of George Floyd’s mysteriously closed casket, has since been burned at the stake by the fascist left after he dared to express opposition to abolishing the entire Minneapolis police force.
“Civil discourse is an impossibility,” Black adds about the new leftist mob mentality calling all the shots. “You cannot have a respectful exchange of ideas or a discussion of values … If you don’t grovel to the Twitter mob, even when there’s no consensus what the mob wants, you’re a white supremacist who deserves to be dead.”
