The meteoric rise of the radical left is truly shocking.
Domestic terrorists and far-left activists are tearing apart society at the seams.
Now the war against cops escalated with one shocking declaration.
The death of George Floyd spurred a backlash against law enforcement that’s completely spiraled out of control.
Police should be held accountable for misconduct, but the Marxists who openly wish to dismantle America are using the outrage of Floyd’s death to escalate the war on police officers.
But a recent Gallup poll showed that 81% of black citizens want the same level, if not more, police involvement in their communities.
The numbers are similarly high for other demographic groups as well.
But the anti-police narrative has grown so potent, popular police television shows have actually been canceled.
The country has been demoralized, and police departments across the nation have had to deal with a spate of resignations and early retirements.
Now gangs are literally declaring war against the police in Chicago.
From Fox News:
The Chicago Police Department has confirmed…the existence of an intelligence alert reportedly sent out by the FBI warning area law enforcement of a pact among street gangs “to ‘shoot on-sight any cop that has a weapon drawn on any subject in public’.”
This is horrific, but worse yet, this sentiment has gone mainstream.
Democrats and their media allies pushed the “defund the police” agenda for weeks, and one reporter even said Hollywood should stop making movies and television shows that portray police officers in a positive light.
The anti-police slang phrase “f*** 12” has become commonplace and there’s a disturbing level of agreeance in society with the Chicagoland gangs.
A Chicago PD spokesperson said, “We have been made aware of this threat by a law enforcement partner…The Chicago Police Department takes all threats against officer safety seriously and we will take all necessary measures to safeguard our officers.”
The fact that gangs are putting hits out on cops should be a perfect illustration of the true danger to socio-economically-depressed areas.
Homicide is the number one cause of death for young black men, and that’s almost exclusively due to gang violence.
But the left has tricked everyone into believing the police are the problem.
A local ABC affiliate said of the threat:
“The alert — which mentions around 36 gangs, including the Latin Kings and Vice Lords — says ‘members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in performance of their official duties.’”
So there are 36 gangs actively plotting to murder cops if given the opportunity. But it’s the cops who are the bad guys.
It’s no wonder so many police officers are quitting.
The murderers they’re hunting have essentially been given a free pass by the so-called mainstream media.
Black Lives Matter radicalism has been accepted by the general public without fully understanding it – BLM is a Marxist organization that only welcomes rioting and looting.
This topsy-turvy world is an outgrowth of that troubling phenomenon.
