Aug 10 - Republicans Are Suddenly Very Eager to Defund the Police
 

 
All it took was one itty-bitty FBI search at Mar-a-Lago for prominent conservatives to start calling for defunding law enforcement.

The calls have been to defund the FBI, the Department of Justice, and, well, really anyone who helped aid in the search of Donald Trump’s Florida home Monday. The search, executed by warrant signed by a federal judge, was purportedly regarding the mishandling of classified documents. Trump said the FBI broke into the safe he keeps on the Palm Beach property.

Widely seen as an unprecedented event in American politics, it has left many in the GOP apoplectic.

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert released a video stating that she’s “pissed.” She described the actions as “totally un-American” and “Gestapo crap" and added “the department of injustice needs to be cleaned out.” Tagging the FBI in a tweet, she wrote, “the GOP majority must defund all forms of tyranny throughout Biden’s government.”

Fringe-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene unsurprisingly also got in on the action. She has tweeted an upside-down American flag—a symbol traditionally a*sociated with distress—and wrote “DEFUND THE FBI!”

Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced his plans to investigate the person he believes to be behind the search.

“Attorney General (Merrick) Garland: preserve your documents and clear your calendar,” he wrote.

To be fair though, the support of law enforcement for many of these figures—some of which, like Boebert, have past (negative) experience with law enforcement—sways with the political winds. At a recent talk at CPAC, Rep. Andy Biggs announced he wanted to defund the FBI and DOJ because of their treatment of January 6 defendants. He also got into the fun on Monday, tweeting, “the only thing missing from the unprecedented FBI raid at President Trump’s home is Muammar Gaddafi’s sunglasses and cap on Joe Biden.”

Predictably, lesser-known figures involved in right-wing politics enthusiastically joined in. Anthony Sabatini, a member of the Florida House of Representatives, called for Florida to “sever all ties with DOJ immediately.”

“Any FBI agent conducting law enforcement functions outside the purview of our State should be arrested upon sight,” he added.

The FBI director whose head many of these figures are calling for is Christopher A. Wray, a lifelong Republican and Trump appointee who stepped in after the then-president dismissed James Comey.

Many conservative figures have derided and openly mocked similar calls from left-wing activists to defund law enforcement and have gone out of their way to support the sector. “Back the Blue” is a routine political cry from this crowd. Greene has been vocal in her support of cops and has posted several pro-policing memes on her social media page. On her website, Boebert has a section entitled “Back the Blue” in which she writes she stands “up for public safety agencies.”

“In short, I back the blue, and I will never apologize for it,” it reads. “I reject policies that seek to deprive the American people of their safety and liberty.”

I don’t know when or why it happened, but most team red people I knew didn’t like police, government, or feds telling them what to do.
That whole taking the sides of cops in everything was a surprise to me. Some of it racist I imagine. But there’s plenty of white folks shot over nothing too, and they don’t say a peep. They were always the “I know my rights copper” types. Putting up with the bullying and power drunk police not at all on page with what they talked about years previously. They were almost jumping at the chance to go against cops and feds. Now they quiet as fuk.


Edit: now I thought about it, I think it’s because they don’t have a spine no more..
I probably hung around the old school pops… not these half shaved hair republicans, that “stay on code” and just back whatever their political lords tell them to back. Same as the blue team.. nobody wants to compromise or take some of both..
It’s all or nothing anymore.. fuk em all.

Of course the people they say dumb isht to are not smart enough to comprehend federal state county and local police agencies

When isht goes down at lowest level being locality

Guess what feds step in

And do police work. But nonetheless if these weirdos think they are not the same they should commit a federal crime and see who shows up
