In a stunning move, serial liar Jen Psaki and the fake news started pushing the false narrative last month that it was Republicans and not Democrats who want to “defund the police” in America today.
This is despite the fact that a majority of Democrats either ran on or vocally supported the “defund the police” movement for the past year-and-a-half.
On Thursday Rep. James Clyburn told MSNBC hack Mehdi Hasan that the Democrat’s “defund the police” movement is “a chokehold” on the Democrat-Socialist party.
Clyburn is against the narrative — not because he does not believe in it — but because he sees it as a detriment to their goal of all-consuming power in the country.
James Clyburn told Hasan: “I’m out here with the voters every day. I did a town hall meeting last night in Jasper County, South Carolina, and I can tell you, defund the police is a non-starter even with Black people, and if you don’t think that’s true, then look at the results of what just happened in New York City’s election. So the proof is in the pudding. I know what I’m talking about, I’ve talked to I talk to people every day, and defund the police is a chokehold around the Democratic Party.”
Me: "Is the whole attention on 'defund the police' really a deflection by the [Democratic] party leadership from your own failures?"
House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn: "That is absolutely poppycock."
