(ReliableNews.org) – Establishment Democrats have been using flowery language to make the “defund the police” movement more palatable. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blew up their attempts this week when she weighed in on the budget cuts to the NY Police Department (NYPD).
On June 30, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and the New York City Council reached an agreement to cut $1 billion from the NYPD budget. The money will go to social services and education in communities hurt by COVID-19. That wasn’t good enough for AOC, though. In fact, she was upset by it.
The congresswoman said, “defunding police means defunding police.”

Her statement confirms what Conservatives have suspected all along: the Left truly does want to defund the police. If this happens, communities will turn into a disaster like Seattle. Is that really the America we want to live in?
