Black Leaders In Minneapolis Criticize City Council Plan To Defund Police

Published

on

After a month of protests, many of which turned violent, the all-Democratic leadership of the Minneapolis city council decided that the best course of action would be to capitulate to the demands of these rioters and looters by coming up with a plan to defund the police, opting to create what they are calling a “transformative new model for cultivating safety” in the city.

However, a few influential voices from the black community within Minneapolis are not fans of the idea and are pushing back on the city council’s plan.

Back on June 12, the council voted to unanimously replace the Minneapolis Police Department with what they are calling a “community-led public safety system” that will involve “healers, elders, youth, artists, and organizers” tasked with leading “deep community engagement on race and public safety.” They’ll also offer “transformative justice in partnerships informed by the needs of every block in our city.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

“Egregious, grotesque, absurd, crazy, ridiculous. These are a handful of the words that some local African American leaders are using to rebuke the Minneapolis City Council’s moves toward dismantling the Police Department, even as they demand an overhaul of law enforcement,” the Tribune reported Thursday. “While the movement to defund the police has been driven by Black activists, others say that city politicians rushed the process and failed to include a police chief who has the backing of many Black residents.”

One of the black leaders, the former president of the NAACP Minneapolis, accused the city council of showing “a complete disregard for the voices and perspectives of many members of the African American community.”

“We have not been consulted as the city makes its decisions, even though our community is the one most heavily impacted by both police violence and community violence,” said former NAACP leader Nekima Levy Armstrong, as reported by the Tribune. Armstrong went on to accuse the council of “seizing upon the national spotlight to look as if they’re making a difference.”

Pastor Brian Herron told the Star Tribune that he believed the city council is just “pandering.”

He’s absolutely right. This is just pandering. Which is a fact that should cause many individuals in the black community to be super angry, as this isn’t a viable solution to reigning in police brutality while not sacrificing the safety of whole communities. It’s just a political stunt.

Let’s hope the city council comes to its senses on this issue and that the people of the city reject this horrific idea come November.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
