This will be seen in a million Republican attack ads and rightly so.
The same people who want to “Abolish ICE” and “Defund the Police” only want to strip you of public goods like police protection and national borders. They will continue to live in their gated communities and be protected by private security which they alone can afford like in Third World countries.
When the police retreat, criminals are emboldened and violent crime inevitably spikes, it will be blamed on systematic racism and “white supremacy.” As Chicago has been engulfed by violent crime, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has already done this by declaring systematic racism is a public health emergency. The true cause is that the courts are simply releasing murderers back into the streets. Progressive activists are dismantling policing and the criminal justice system in all of the big cities.
Note: As you can probably imagine, it is much the same way with other progressive causes like wearing masks and eating meat. It is about virtue signaling and bossing people around. It makes sense when you realize that the “progressives” are overwhelmingly college-educated PMCs.
