Democrats: Abandoning Brave Men & Women of Law Enforcement

The Democrats are galloping to the far, far Left, and they are leaving the American people behind.

As we've seen over the last 9 weeks, Democrats are ABANDONING the brave men and women of law enforcement, while EMBRACING violent Antifa criminals and other anti-American anarchists.

Local Democrat officials have been leaving innocent Americans left to fend for themselves, while catering to the violent mobs. These violent agitators have left police cars firebombed, police officers assaulted and killed, and businesses burned to the ground.

We've also seen the Democrats' dangerous "Defund the Police" movement gain momentum in cities where - to no one's surprise - crime is on the rise. Here are the facts Democrats want you to ignore:

  • In New York City, where Mayor Bill de Blasio announced his plans to cut $1 billion from the NYPD, shootings are up 46% year-to-date, the murder rate is up 23% for the first half of the year, and burglaries are up 46% year-to-date.
  • In Minneapolis, where the city council voted to abolish the police department, there were more than 40 shootings in the first half of July, prompting residents to form their own armed security groups to protect their communities.
  • In Portland, where Mayor Ted Wheeler pledged to divert millions from the police bureau and the city council even voted to disband the city's "Gun Violence Reduction Team," Wheeler recently conceded, "in just the first 12 days of July alone, we've witnessed an increase in gun violence by over 380%."

And let's not forget - these criminals are hijacking otherwise peaceful assemblies and protests to engage in political violence. Put another way: to terrorize our communities.

WATCH: Antifa's Terrorist Assault on America

This domestic terrorism was on display in Seattle, where rioters established an "autonomous zone" that left six people shot and two teenagers killed. In Portland, vandals have spent two months throwing knives, setting off weapons-grade fireworks, and even launching a Molotov cocktail at a U.S. courthouse and the federal law enforcement officers there to protect it.

It's no wonder that more than 100 law enforcement agencies have pulled out of security agreements for the Democratic National Convention. Police officers know that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only won't lift a finger to stop this chaos - while rejecting offers of federal assistance, they'll order officers to standown.

Democrats' contempt for the brave men and women of law enforcement is real. Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently had the audacity to refer to federal agents as "unidentified stormtroopers," which Attorney General Bill Barr said may have endangered their lives.

WATCH: We Will Defend America Against Violent Anarchists

BOTTOM LINE: This is not the American way. Democrat city officials have allowed this violent mob rule, and they need to be held accountable for the lives lost and the millions of dollars in damages that have been incurred by lawless and dangerous anarchists. That's why Sen. Cruz introduced the RECLAIM Act to take our cities back.

P.S. On Tuesday, Sen. Cruz will chair a hearing examining how Antifa and other anti-American anarchists hijack peaceful protests to engage in domestic terrorism and how we can hold them accountable. Tune in here.
