(Liberty Bell) – Hypocrisy is the trademark of any good Democrat. What’s OK for them is not OK for regular, working Americans. This has been displayed over and over again throughout the COVID-19 scam but their hypocrisy is far from limited to breaking the COVID rules they’ve put in place.
The entire “defund the police” charade is nothing more than typical Democrat hypocrisy. While Dems yell loudly to “abolish” the police, they make no secret of their own security details and other measures to keep them safely separated and protected from the common folk.
Members of the notorious extreme left “squad” have spent thousands of dollars on hiring private security for themselves while also screaming for the defunding and abolishing of the police.
According to a new report, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Cori Bush (D-MO), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) have attempted to privately and quietly build up their own security forces while insisting that the American public would be better off without police protection and intervention.
You know, because of “institutional racism,” of course.
NEW: Members of the progressive-Democrat group in Congress called "the squad" who have been pushing to defund the police, spent thousands of dollars on private security for themselves, according to FEC records reviewed by the @DailyCaller.

The Daily Caller reported on the findings and noted that Democrat Reps. spent “nearly $70,000” on private security from just January to March this year.
Specifically, AOC paid one company based out of Brooklyn, New York, $9,000 for 3 months of security consulting. She spent an additional $4,000 on “security” on January 19 and another $24,000 on “security services” on January 25, with yet another payment of $849.22 for “security services” on Feb. 2.
The report also details that Rep. Omar spent $3,103.61 on private security while Pressley spent $4,186.75 on “security services,” and Bush reported spending $30,000 on security.
The audacity is truly astounding. While these entitled, well-off representatives tell Americans that they don’t need the police they simultaneously protect themselves with armed security.
Hypocrisy at its finest.
@DailyCaller reached out to many of the security companies and learned that they indeed provide armed security, but couldn't comment on the nature of security provided to the congresswomen.

Cori Bush shamelessly refused to answer any questions about her security spending on Wednesday when questioned on it:
A GOP source just sent me this based on my story from last night on Rep. Cori Bush and the squad paying for private security despite calls to defund the police.

Every single one of these radical Democratic Reps have called for the defunding and/or abolishing of the police across the US:
With all due respect, Mr. President—let’s talk about losing people. We lost Michael Brown Jr. We lost Breonna Taylor. We’re losing our loved ones to police violence.
It’s not a slogan. It’s a mandate for keeping our people alive. Defund the police. https://t.co/Wsxp1Y1bBi

Defunding the police isn’t radical, it’s real. https://t.co/wUcTjxqS3w

“Defunding police means defunding police,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a June 30 statement, noting “It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”
What if activists aren’t PR firms for politicians & their demands are bc police budgets are exploding, community resources are shrinking to bankroll it, & ppl brought this up for ages but it wasn’t until they said “defund” that comfortable people started paying attn to brutality

Pressley and fellow squad member Rashida Tlaib introduced the BREATHE Act as the first step in defunding America’s police forces last year. Tlaib has been extremely vocal with her calls to outright abolish the police.
It wasn't an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist.
Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder.
No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can't be reformed.

Also last summer, Omar said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Minneapolis has to “rebuild” its police department as it is “rotten to the root” and impossible to reform.
We lose people in the hands of police. It’s not a slogan but a policy demand. And centering the demand for equitable investments and budgets for communities across the country gets us progress and safety. https://t.co/Vu6inw4ms7

It doesn’t seem to matter to these radicals that the majority of black Americans are actually opposed to the idea of defunding the police and especially abolishing them.
These radical lawmakers, however, don’t much care who everyday Americans turn to for help in times of need. They have their expensive armed security details and their safety is all that really matters.
So they think security should be reserved for the rich. That makes sense to……..a rich person.

So they want armed security for themselves, but for everyone else, their police get defunded and the people themselves get disarmed. Got it.
