What Does Liberals’ Crime Reversal Reveal? 🤔

What Does Liberals’ Crime Reversal Reveal? 🤔

A headline from the liberal New York Times tells us everything we need to know about Democrat priorities.

Translation: For liberals, it’s not about the communities that have been ravaged by murder and violent crime for more than a year. It’s about protecting themselves from political attacks. 

Republicans have warned about the exploding crime and anti-police rhetoric for more than a year. Now that Democrats realize they may pay a political price for their dangerous policies, they’re desperate to look tough on crime. On Wednesday, Joe Biden joined the game with a speech about his sham solutions: summer job training and a gun crackdown.

This begs the question: Do liberals only care about protecting families when they need to protect their jobs?

Dem Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds 🥱

Democrats are throwing a temper tantrum because Senate Republicans used the filibuster to kill their election takeover bill. Far-left lawmakers are now ramping up pressure to abolish the filibuster, going after their fellow Democrats and even President Biden.

News flash: It won’t matter. Democrats need all 50 senators to eliminate the filibuster, but Democrat Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) aren’t budging.

The bigger story is that the Democrats have shown their true colors. Thirty-nine senators who used to support the filibuster now oppose it. This flip-flop reaffirms one thing: Democrats only care about protecting democracy when it serves their far-left agenda.
