Biden On Defunding The Police: Do Republicans Think We’re Sucking Blood Out Of Kids?

Published

President Biden demonstrated his relationship with reality on Thursday after attempting to rebut a reporter who questioned the administration’s claims on Republicans being the ones advocating for defunding the police.

“I’m the Democratic Party; I am president. So is the Speaker of the House and so is the, the Majority Leader,” Biden claimed. “We are not defunding the police.”

“Okay,” a reporter responded. “And are there people who — in the Democratic Party, who want to defund the police?”

“Are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?” Biden responded.

Biden’s response was in support of his administration’s claim that Republicans were the ones who wanted to defund the police, a claim that earned “Three Pinocchios” from the Washington Post.

The Washington Post reported, “Although Republicans all opposed Biden’s coronavirus relief package, no one voted to cut, or defund, anything. Rather, Democrats proposed $350 billion in emergency funds for state and local governments, and Republicans voted against those extra funds. That’s not a reduction.”

Contradicting the Biden administration’s claim, numerous Democrats have actually defunded their city’s police departments. In New York City, for example, Democrats removed $1 billion from the New York Police Department’s budget, which was criticized by other Democrats for not being enough. Further, in Los Angeles, Democrats cut the Los Angeles Police Department’s budget by $150 million, and the move was praised by Vice President Kamala Harris.

    Leo,

    You have to know your Ps (P is for Party) and especially your Qs (Q is for Quazy). They are now trying to link the two in that statement and you don’t want that because they are not. Echoing it spreads the inference. Never assume these guys don’t know exactly what they are doing. Never. Always be asking yourself why.

    Sucking the blood out of children? Biden’s dementia is really noticeable. He can’t string 2 coherent sentences together. He can’t even focus enough to get to the end of 1 sentence without loosing his train of thought, stuttering and stammering then changing his answer in mid-sentence. He’s mentally and physically unfit for office.

    Democrats saying that Republicans are for defunding the police is called projection, a common attribute of a psychopath.

    Geez…it doesn’t take much for anyone to realize that all the bs that occurred in the ‘red’ states during the Floyd riots of death and destruction where lawlessness occurred. As a nation that used to believe in law and order, the left panders to any large group in exchange for votes. The left has lost all reasoning.

    AOC, Omar, Presley, Sanders, Lightfoot, DeBlasio, DC Mayor. The Laughing Hyena Harris supports bail money for felonious rioters. The list goes on of Dem, Lib, Progressive socialists who want to defund the police. Biden actually said, “the reality is , crime is down”.
    #defund the Democratic Party.

    Sure Biden, let’s keep lying. In my city, Austin, TX, our democrat mayor and council defunded our police $150,000,000. Unbelievably, the downtown office is boarded shut. 🤬 They’re RUINING my native home. He can skip around the issue and give nonsense answers, but the truth is what it is.

    Anybody with a functional brain can see what’s going on & stop drinking the piss or all will choke you can find someone to state your case to without all this backwards mess in someone else’s time and if you’re looking for employment I would ask for a refundable credit just on history alone. If you are truly concerned about how we are spending our money we need to be transparent with everything & it’s true Karma is a “Bitch” & you know that the Lord despise “Ugly”, I guess the proof will be made

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
