Ever heard of Jamaal Bowman?
He’s a freshman congressman from New York. That’s him, above.
He’s ultra-progressive. Might even say he’s a socialist because he fits right in with AOC’s “Squad.”
So it figures that this dude was right on board with the “defund the police” movement because stupidity seems to run in that ‘Squad’ crowd.
But this guy isn’t just dim when it comes to how best to protect his own constituents from criminals.
He’s a gargantuan hypocrite.
Via Trending Politics:
There's nothing quite so maddening as hypocrisy, especially when it comes to political moralizing from Democrats.
You will recall several members of the party throughout last summer as George Floyd-inspired violence and rioting eventually transformed into generalized anti-law enforcement violence and rioting calling to 'defund' police departments as a sort of really odd, non-sensical 'criminal justice reform' effort.
Rational people listened to the words of these Democrats who were screaming 'Defund the Police!' but what they actually heard was something akin to, 'If we really cared about poor Americans of color we'd be pushing for more cops to protect them.'
In any event, one of the 'defund' voices was freshman Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York, a newly ordained 'Squad' leftist who hopped right on the defund bandwagon.
Only, while he was pushing the NYPD and other departments around the country to defend law enforcement, he was requesting more for himself because of rising violence in the city he's from.
Breitbart News adds:
Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) requested additional police protection at his New York home in January while demanding police departments be defunded in America.
Bowman's calls for additional police protection comes as he has called for defunding police for Americans in which he said in December of 2020 to 'defund the system that's terrorizing our communities.'
'About a week after the January 6 incident at the Capitol, we received a request from the Congressman's office for increased police presence at his residence,' Yonkers Police Department Detective Lt. Dean Politopoulos told the New York Post.
'In response, our Intelligence Unit was notified of the request and the local precinct instituted what is called a directed patrol at the Congressman's home for the next two weeks,' Politopoulos explained.
Whenever you hear one of these Democrat clowns say stupid shit like “Defund the police!” — they mean your police, not theirs.
