Pelosi Announces End of ‘Defund the Police’



Nancy Pelosi announced on Sunday that ‘Defund the Police’ was not the position of the Democratic party, and that, in fact, the movement was ‘dead.’

As The Daily Wire reports:

“The other thing that’s weighing on people right now is rising crime,” Stephanopoulos began, adding, “And there appear to be some divisions among Democrats about how to handle it. Your colleague Karen Bass, running for Mayor of Los Angeles, is trying to increase the police force in L.A. Cori Bush, Congresswoman from Missouri, is saying it’s time to defund the police, she’s sticking by that.”

“You’re the Speaker, how do you think Democrats should address rising crime?” he asked.

“Well, with all the respect in the world for Cori Bush, that is not the position of the Democratic Party,” Pelosi replied. “Community safety, to protect and defend in every way, is our oath of office. And I have sympathy, I’m — we’re all concerned about mistreatment of people and that’s why Karen Bass had the Justice in Policing Act, and we would hope to get some of that done.”

“Make no mistake, community safety is our responsibility,” Pelosi continued. “And I quote one of my colleagues from New York, Ritchie Torres, a brand new member of Congress, way on the left, saying that ‘Defund the Police is dead.’ That causes a concern with a few in our caucus, but public safety is our responsibility and I support what Karen Bass is doing and Mayor Adams of New York.”

Squad Member Cori Bush, along with other radical members of the party, has continued to push ‘Defund the Police’ as a major Democratic priority.

  1. Funny, you would have taken credit for defunding if the results achieved your goals. They didn’t ( which doesn’t surprise me), so now you say that “it wasn’t what we wanted”. I didn’t hear any objections when BLM first suggested that law enforcement should be defunded. You can’t have it both ways.

    1. THEY WROTE IT ON THE STREETS.
      It damn well was and is the plan of the Democrat / Communist Party.
      Is there no Tar? Are there no Feathers?

  2. They are desperate to win the next elections. I bet if they suceed in winning the elections they’ll do an about face.That whole party needs to be taken out…it is the party of traitors.

  3. Face it.
    The Democrat Party has turned Communist.
    Everything they have done this year proves it.
    They opened the border for tons of deadly Fentanyl and human slaves. We can only assume that Pelosi and her ilk make a profit on it.
    Everything the idiot in the White House has been rejected by the vast majority of the American People.
    If there is 30% support for the Democrat / Communists I will be amazed!
    Basically these are the most crooked batch of thieves that ever ran a government. Every top Democrat has a son serving on a Ukrainian Gas Company Board. That alone tells you who is paying these thieves.
    A curse on every crooked Democrat!
