White House press secretary Jen Psaki continues to perpetuate the lie that Republicans were the political party set on defunding the police. The White House spin machine appears to be working overtime to ensure this false narrative takes off, but evidence shows that Democrats, not Republicans, are the ones who always wanted to defund the police.
Ever since calls of “all cops are b-stards” and “defund the police” made their way to center stage during the summer of rage in 2020, Democrat-led city councils in Austin, Los AngelesWashington D.C.Baltimore, and Minneapolis voted to divert funds away from law enforcement. Despite the recent national and local crime surge in murders, carjackings, and shootings, the City Council of Oakland, California voted last week to defund their police department by almost $18 million.
Other Democrat-led cities that chose to slash their policing budgets last summer, such as San Francisco, are now struggling to meet residents’ demands for higher police presence at the police department’s primary station amid a 36.7 percent increase in killings and a 753 percent increase in car break-ins. Now, Democrat Mayor London Breed has plans to increase policing in high-crime areas less than a year after proudly proposing a $120 million cut from the police and sheriff’s department budget.

Countless Democrat politicians and candidates have also used “defund the police” as part of their brand and platform. Just last week, progressive activist India Walton ousted longtime Democrat Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown after focusing her socialist-endorsed campaign on pulling funds from law enforcement.

Other sitting politicians such as “squad” members Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-CortezIlhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib have egged on demands to defund the police and offered their own extreme statements about law enforcement.
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math,” AOC said in June 2020.
“Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist,” Tlaib tweeted in April. “Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.”
