I'm sure you've all seen by now that the latest "call to action" among the radical left is to literally defund our police. Thankfully, by and large, it seems that anyone who actually promoted this crazy plan, on a political front, suffered from a negative impact on their election bids.
But this won't detour the most radical of the left... oh no, just look at what the founders are trying to do. Prominent leaders of BLM are going to petition for the potentially-upcoming Biden-Harris admin to ABOLISH PRISONS, among other demands. And they're calling this little "gem" the BREATHE act.
“Black Lives Matter activists are pressuring Democrats to embrace the BREATHE Act, which includes a section requiring a ‘roadmap for prison abolition.'” the Fox News reported Sunday.
“Cullors, who has written a letter to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris requesting a meeting, told The Hollywood Reporter she is requesting that the new administration work to pass the BREATHE Act within the first 100 days,” Fox notes.
You know, not to sound like a fanboy, but I had gotten so used to WINNING under Donald Trump that it's hard for me to even wrap my head around the stupidity of all this. I'm sure I'll get there but consider me dazed and confused.
The BREATHE act notes as extended by Daily Wire:
Although the report only notes a “summary” of the BREATHE Act’s, the Act’s campaign website notes that it includes a full divestment of “federal resources” from law enforcement — defunding the police and immigration enforcement on a federal level — and ending incarceration, a priority that also includes the “full decarceration of federal detention facilities within 10 years and enacts a moratorium on all new federal prison, jail, immigrant and youth detention construction.”
The act suggests that any money saved by not enforcing the country’s criminal laws be rerouted to minority communities to address income inequality and other progressive pet issues.
Cullors penned an op-ed for “Teen Vogue” last week that makes it clear that she not only expects the Biden administration to pass the BREATHE Act, she believes Joe Biden and Kamala Harris should use the legislation as a means of “repaying” support from the black community.
