Where are the conservative liberals?
Five months from the 2020 election, they are working on police reform:
Perhaps a good first step to changing attitudes toward racial discrimination would be for each of us who are white to ask ourselves this question: How would I feel if police in my hometown repeatedly stopped me for being a white man or a white woman in the wrong place? pic.twitter.com/wPmIj1cL7H— Sen.

McConnell on GOPers responding to police abuse: I think it’s important to have a response..We’re still wrestling with America’s original sin. We try to get better, but every now and then, it’s clear we’re along way from the finish line.— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) June 9, 2020
In Richmond, anarchists tore down a statue of Christopher Columbus, set it on fire and threw it in a lake. They tore down a Confederate monument this weekend. Monument Avenue is about to be destroyed.

As our monuments are illegally torn down by mobs, new shrines are being built to Black Lives Matter in public spaces:

“Stop treating us like animals and thugs, and start treating us with some respect! — We’ve been vilified. It’s disgusting.”
“Our legislators abandoned us. The press is vilifying us. It’s disgusting.”
What a piece of shit.— Keith Miller Mort (@KeithMillerMor1) June 10, 2020

Anarchists have been allowed to take over a police precinct and to establish an “autonomous zone” in Seattle. This isn’t the first time it has happened.
Protesters have put on the barricades that those coming into the area are “now leaving the USA” and entering the “Cap Hill autonomous zone” or “Free Capitol Hill.” pic.twitter.com/zGNBYAyLOg— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) June 9, 2020
Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle. 6 blocks retaken back for the people. “You are now leaving the USA” when you enter. Long live the fucking revolution. ?? pic.twitter.com/xgFVjA33mx— Armani (@historyofarmani) June 9, 2020
When antifa can’t achieve a full revolution, they take over a small area in leftist cities to carry out their utopian commune experiment. It ends in neighborhoods being destroyed & occupiers forcibly dispersed because of health hazards. They leave the filth behind for others. https://t.co/JWBntUW2zd— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) June 9, 2020
In 2018, @tedwheeler allowed a similar #antifa zone in Portland to go on for five weeks. Not only did it become a biohazard site w/intravenous drug abuse, the local businesses & residents were terrorized. Tax payers had to pay for the extensive cleanup. https://t.co/0tukZ1cMih— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) June 9, 2020
This is one of the individuals running the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” in Seattle. No additional commentary from me needed, lol pic.twitter.com/eDYfFQOQLU— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) June 9, 2020
I’m outside of the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct for @townhallcom. Police have pulled out of the area and protesters have set up barricades in the streets. They have declared it a “Cop Free Zone.” pic.twitter.com/iYFQ9B4jhz— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) June 9, 2020
Antifa has currently occupied several blocks of Seattle and is trying to declare it an official “autonomous zone”.— Pax Christus (@paxchristus0) June 9, 2020
I expect them to try to do this across the entire country if Trump wins re-election. pic.twitter.com/JnK4UXpn1K
Seattle #antifa extremists have occupied the Capitol Hill area in Seattle & turned it into a no-go zone. They have their people patrolling the barriers they set up. Local news crew was chased out. They had to seek refuge in fire station. pic.twitter.com/CLM08tJFFj— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) June 9, 2020
More Jewish celebrities are denouncing their “white privilege” and calling for the police to be defunded:

A coffe shop (@CraftKafe) in St. Petr, FL just fired a gay Trump supporter (@brokebackUSA) accusing him of a “racist” social media post saying black lives don’t matter to Black Lives Matter, calling ANTIFA a domestic terrorist organization, and saying all lives matter.
More pandering to people who didn’t vote for him:
My decision to appoint @usairforce General Charles Brown as the USA’s first-ever African American military service chief has now been approved by the Senate. A historic day for America!
