Who Else Wants To Defund The Police, And Why?

The mantra parroted by Black Lives Pampered and others that the police should be defunded is regarded by many right wing pundits and even ordinary people as insane, but as pointed out here, the idea isn’t entirely without merit.

However, the massive rise in crime in certain cities, Seattle for example, does suggest the people who are actually defunding the police are going about it the wrong way. What though if rather than combat excessive state control of the nation, some of the people encouraging this defunding want to increase it? If that idea sounds contradictory, some people like Tim Pool and other independent voices have suggested it isn’t.

No sooner had the Democrats stolen the election than they set about imposing what can only be viewed as a totalitarian agenda. They are intent on packing the Supreme Court with “liberals”, making Washington D.C. a state, and most sinister of all, rigging the electoral system to make it virtually impossible for Republicans ever to win again. In short, they are seeking to control elections at a national level. Defunding the police will lead to law and order being likewise controlled nationally, in other words the Federal Government will control everything.

The political structure of the United States is very different from say Britain. Although every county has its own police force, and Scotland has its own legal system, a man suspected of committing a murder in say Cornwall who is arrested in Essex, Wales, or north of the border will be taken directly back to the West Country where he will appear before a local magistrate. As Britain is a relatively small country with a much smaller population, that isn’t a problem. In the United States however, someone arrested in New York State on suspicion of committing a crime in California – as was Angela Davis – must be extradited, and that extradition can be opposed.

In this connection, it is best to view the United States not as one country but as fifty separate states each with its own laws. Texas was actually an independent republic between 1836 and 1846. Attempts at extradition are not always successful. Leaving that aside, do you as an American citizen, want decisions made about your community at a local level or by people in Washington, politicians, or even worse, bureaucrats, who know little about you and care even less?

If local police forces are defunded, will the country dissolve into chaos, or will something else happen? The answer is the Federal Government will step in, and will take effective control of everything. If you don’t think so, you need to open your eyes, because the United States is already being subjected to the biggest power grab in its history.

Direct rule from Washington will mean the end of consent by the governed. Biden, or whoever is pulling his strings, has already issued a plethora of executive orders, while the politicisation of both the FBI and the State Department is resulting in the persecution of anyone who opposes the new agenda, starting with Trump supporters, but don’t think for one moment it will end there.

Again, defunding the police is nowhere near as bad as it sounds, but it has to be done selectively and intelligently so the end result is to reduce the power of the state over people’s lives, not to increase it at the end of the day.

“don’t think for one moment it will end there”

We know, well some of us do: we went through the same process from 1933 to 1945.

Of course Israel is the place where “thug enforcement” education is given.

Basically if you know the weasel you know the mentality.

All of the groups who preach “peace” are bogus.

For example: https://theduran.com/rudy-giulianis-apartment-raided-by-doj-as-witch-hunt-to-get-trump-continues/

This is not a novelty, all totalitarian states, in this case the fascist faction in the

USA, use the method.

Well, I know what I think, and that is, that it will happen. I don’t know if people realise what Bezos’ plans are, but he is busy putting them into action. In time, Americans will be governed by the Federal State, and the building of ‘smart’ cities will proliferate in the next few years. The mass roll-out of 5G which the big tech companies are agog for, means that everyone will have a biometric passport, and each citizen will be tracked wherever they go. (Boris Johnson has already stated that the biometric details of every child born will be taken… Read more »

No cop protects anyone but those that sign his paycheck. Cops are the political class’s insurance policy against the rabble known as the citizenry. The street cop is a useless thug whose only real job is to surround the politicians in an instance where the citizenry just might mete out some real street justice. Think about it. The street cops rides around in a cop car all day. He’s typically a fat slob who couldn’t chase down a 10 year old much less some wiry kid from the hood. If the cop does anything, he sits in wait along a… Read more »

Yes. By all means, defund the police. The only people they arrest in this current race war are whites who defend themselves.
