I am sitting here listening to news and commentary in which there are serious discussions about defunding and/or dismantling law enforcement agencies in cities across the country. In one case the city council president and at least two council members have said it’s pretty much a done deal and only needs a formal vote which they imply will go their way. Another city is saying they are going to cut police budgets and give the money to “community based organizations” That’s 1984 NewSpeak for we’re going to try to bribe a bunch of thugs to call off their mindless hordes.
Ladies and gentleman, these power mad Lords and Ladies little red locomotives have chugged around the corner and off the cliffs. Add to this Mayors saying “don’t try to defend your selves, your families, or your property. Call 911 and the police will handle it.” WHAT POLICE? Assuming you haven’t fired them, they’re all busy trying to control the riots and looting stealing all the oxygen from the legitimate protests.
If you notice how this discussion is going, everyone has been dancing around and putting a lampshade on the 600 pound gorilla in the room, that being what is going to happen when you DO eliminate police protection and rioters, looters, and all other types of criminals. Do you honestly believe people will simply stand by and allow them to take over? The results would make what’s happening now look like a Sunday ice cream social. Neighborhood watches would turn into neighborhood militias. Left and right wing extremists would be out like ants on honey. Two words come to mind to describe the results…anarchy and chaos.
The best way to categorize these maniacs, morons, and Nationalist Socialists that want to replace the police with their own versions of Brown Shirts is using a favorite quote from the Roman statesmen Cicero…”A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.”
One more quote…“The government you elect is the government you deserve.”
― Thomas Jefferson
These people need to be replaced. How and when is up to the people.
