(Liberty Bell) – Liberals have been using the anti-cop sentiment and racial divisive narratives they’ve crafted over the last decade to help foment civil unrest, violence, looting, and rioting, all the while they sit back and watch in pure glee.
You see, in their warped and twisted thinking, allowing this chaos to go unchecked — which is what Democratic leadership in cities where Black Lives Matter and Antifa are carrying out these acts are doing — they believe that folks will become so scared by the fact Trump hasn’t usurped power from the states and just rode in on a tank to stop it all that they’ll vote for Biden in November.
But it seems their plot is having the opposite effect. Tons of Democrats are jumping ship and joining the GOP to vote for Trump in order to send a message to the party they feel betrayed them.
A great example of this is a longtime Democrat sheriff who has said that the anti-cop sentiment has become too much for him, so he’s ditching his party to join the GOP.
Come on in, buddy. The water’s fine.
Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding accused Democrats of supporting flag-burning, anti-God and anti-law enforcement sentiments being touted by the left as he announced his departure from the Democrat Party in the past week. He spoke with Fox News Wednesday about the radical decision and how recent “shocking” events across U.S. cities under Democrat leadership helped him make the switch.
“What I have witnessed across the United States is shocking as a law enforcement leader. I can’t imagine 101 days of rioting and it’s condoned by the Democrat leadership. It’s unbelievable that they can do that to law enforcement profession,” Wedding, a lifelong Democrat, told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy Wednesday.
“As a sheriff, I cannot imagine putting deputies on the front line of these riots night after night with no relief in sight. And if you are a parent of a law enforcement officer that’s going out there, subjected to these riots, I think they would be appalled as well,” the sheriff of southern Indiana’s largest county added.
Wedding slammed the direction of the party in his announced switch, speaking with Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch in attendance at the event.
“I’m tired of seeing fires set in our streets,” he said, according to WFYI. “I’m tired of people defying God, our church, our police, our government and everything we stand for.”
“Watching the daily burning of American flags, failing to be able to use the word ‘God’ in any sentence at most Democrat-led functions, denouncing law enforcement as if we’re the evil people. I am very proud of my profession in law enforcement and when people attack us, it’s pretty insulting,” he said.
His party change was slammed as “political opportunism” by the Vanderburgh County Democratic Party.
“Democrats love their country and that’s why we are fighting so hard for the preservation of democracy,” county Chairwoman Edie Hardcastle reportedly said. “We are fighting for our flag and the rule of law as long as it is applied to all Americans, and the freedom of religion so we can all worship as we like in the United States.”
Being a police officer is one of the hardest jobs on the planet. People just naturally hate you because you are an authority figure that stands in the way of their desire to embrace total chaos and lawlessness, a drive that many of us face down, but are equipped enough with human decency to stuff it way down and ignore it.
These folks put their lives on the line, never knowing if they will make it home that evening to kiss their kids goodnight. Can you imagine living with that? And yet they put up with it all anyway, just to keep us safe. And the thanks they are getting now?
Calls for defunding departments. Death threats and physical assaults. It’s horrifying and shameful.
But Wedding told Doocy on Wednesday that recent moves by Democrats that have aligned themselves with anarchists and rioters cannot be ignored, noting how some have helped “raise funds to release rioters from jails after they have committed serious crimes.”
“That’s shocking in and of itself,” he said.
“I have been on the national conference calls with President Trump and he pledged his support for law enforcement. I’ve seen it in action because he has offered these cities that are under siege federal aid and they are not smart enough to take that aid to try to end siege on their city,” Wedding added, saying he just “can’t explain that.”
“I would be rushing that federal aid to help us end the violence,” he said, criticizing Democrats for not even mentioning violence in cities like Chicago.
But Wedding, who was twice elected sheriff as a Democrat, is apparently not alone. Mayor Brian Snedecor of Hobart in Indiana’s Lake County announced he was switching from Democrat to Republican last month, citing concerns that the national Democratic platform has moved “more and more to the left.”
“The efforts of the progressive left have driven many people, moderates and conservatives, away from the Democratic Party,” Snedecor said in his public announcement in August. “I must be true to my God, my family, myself and those that have supported and believed in me.”
The ranks of the Republican Party are beginning to swell exponentially, all thanks to the idiotic plots of progressives like George Soros who thought for sure they could fund this chaos and people would fall to their knees in fear. That’s not happening.
People are empowered by Trump and his message of fighting and resisting the progressive nature of our current culture. We’re not willing to give up our values. We’ll fight for them. It’s the American way.
