Known as a member of the far-left "Squad," Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan shamelessly exploited the very unfortunate by obviously accidental shooting death of a 20-year-old black man by an experienced white female police officer in recent days so she could shill for more chaos on our streets.
"Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib wasted no time in declaring that the shooting of Daunte Wright was a racist shooting and no accident. The long-time advocate for defunding police has declared that she is 'done' with 'government funded murder,'" George Washington University Law Prof. Jonathan Turley wrote on his website following her lunatic rantings.
"While a long advocate to defund the police, Rep. Tlaib seems to go even further to call for an end of all policing in her most recent comments," Turley added.
The noted law professor and constitutional expert was responding to a tweet Tlaib posted after the shooting.
"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," she wrote in what has to be, straight up, one the dumbest things any lawmaker has written online to date.
As Turley notes, Tlaib's insane call to get rid of all cops will no doubt fuel more insanity from her fellow left-wing nut jobs in the Democratic Party to make the same call. In fact, left-wing pundits who have appeared on propaganda networks MSNBC and CNN have echoed her sentiment.
Of course, Tlaib isn't talking about all cops and all militarization. She is perfectly fine, no doubt, with keeping the Capitol Police well-armed and well-staffed. And she's imminently safer behind a razor-wire-fenced Capitol Building that is manned by armed National Guard soldiers.
She just doesn't want you to be protected by police and the military. (Related: Fauci is a dangerous sociopath who must be held accountable for committing crimes against humanity.)
And for the record, there is no evidence that the incident was motivated by race. In fact, if Tlaib, a 'woman of color,' really wants to be helpful and save lives, she should be instructing all Americans, regardless of their ethnicity, to stop fleeing cops, stop fighting cops, and stop resisting arrest, as Wright did and as nearly every black male in recent police-involved shootings and deaths have done, as video has proven.
But no. She'd much rather gaslight the country, watch cities burn down and businesses be looted, than do the right thing and try to look at incidents with a rational, cogent perspective and wait for results of investigations before coming to any conclusions.
"The latest comments are breathtaking," Turley, a liberal himself who nevertheless understands our country cannot survive without people to ensure law and order, writes.
"Tlaib states categorically that the incident was 'inherently & intentionally racist' but also declares 'no more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.' What does that mean?" he continued.
"No more policing or incarceration in a large society would invite anarchy and chaos. This is a member of the United States Congress calling for the end of policing entirely as if the United States could get by on the honor’s system," Turley added.
That's true, of course. Every day would be a real-life version of "The Purge" films.
And honestly, maybe that is precisely the point.
Tlaib is a lot of things, but mostly a Marxist who isn't stupid. She knows what would happen if we actually got rid of police. The country would devolve instantly into chaos, and then guess who would ride in to clean up the mess and 'restore order' after an authoritarian takeover of government?
That's right: The same authoritarians who arranged for the chaos to begin with.
