Nancy Pelosi has been gleefully enabling the anti-police narrative pushed by the extreme left, but at the same time, she’s relying on police to provide security for her safety.
Now she’s received a strong warning from former cop Tom Homan, who has challenged Pelosi, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, and freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to “lead by example” and give up their personal security.
Breitbart reports Homan as saying:
“Schumer and Pelosi are not speaking up,” he told the audience, emphasizing, again, that “we’re all against” racism.
“No one’s going to justify that, but they’ll stand out on a moment’s notice and defend people that are in here in the country illegally in violation of law, but they won’t stand out there and defend the men and women who leave the safety and security of their home every day … to defend their communities,” he continued. “They haven’t said a word.”
He used far-left “Squad” member Ocasio-Cortez as another example of a progressive politician who has failed to defend officers, instead using her platform to champion defunding police departments.
“She says we should defund the police, and we should all make sacrifices. Okay. So lead by example,” he suggested.
“Let’s take the law enforcement officers that provide them 24/7 law enforcement security. If they want to take protection away from the American people in their communities, lead by example,” Homan said.
“Defund your protection first,” he added. “You think they’re going to do it? They’re never going to do it.”
Homan is right. These politicians are all too happy to stir up their base by attacking the very people that protect them. But they’re too terrified to defund their own security.
If you’re a business owner in Minneapolis or Atlanta, Pelosi doesn’t think you need protection. But when she joined the protests in DC last week, she had a security detail with her.
That security detail travels with her everywhere – including on shopping trips to high-end boutiques.
