As the defund the police movement has continued to threaten the country two Republican combat veterans finally had enough and decided to get right into the fight and run for city council. Two Republican combat veterans flipped the left-leaning city council in Norman, Oklahoma after the council announced it was proposing major budget cuts to the police department.

Kelly Lynn and Rarchar Tortorello felt they each had no choice but to run for council to help protect their communities from the aftermath that comes from defunding the police.

Fox News reports:

“The last straw for us was the defunding of the police,” Tortorello told Ainsley Earhardt. “A lot of folks that we know were planning to leave the city and they just wanted to flee what the city was turning into, a socialist-type environment.”

“I was about to move out of the city I love because it got so crazy politically,” Lynn said.  “These are supposed to be nonpartisan offices and it became very partisan with the acts of defunding the police.”

The Norman City Council voted in June 2020 to reallocate $865,000 from the requested increase to the NPD’s budget to other community projects after hundreds of residents and activists stormed the municipal building demanding police cuts.

“Imagine going to work and your bosses are trying to get rid of your job, they’re trying to question your budget, the need for equipment, gear,” he said. “This is not a good thing for our police departments, for public safety as a whole.”

Defund the police has proven to be a detrimental message for Democrats often causing voters to steer away from the party and those who endorse the dangerous message.

  1. Chinese dry wall killed our homes, Chinese face masks proved defective killing our people, Chinese dog food killing our pets, Chinese lead paint on toys killed our babies Chinese virus again killed our people, why does Biden want to be friends with China? have Hunter accepting large amounts of money? Chinese are trying to kill our dollar, What am I missing? Sounds to me like China hates our guts, Why are all these American companies so in love with China? Why is Biden lifting restrictions on China?

  2. Whoa! Didn’t see that coming. I suspect we will see more and more of this common sense changes to the defund the police stupidity. Veterans, conservatives, republican, etc, will start to take over townships, cities, city counsels, state legislators. The wave is building and if you are not on the side of truth, justice, and the American way, then you will be swept out to sea.

  3. As the hometown for a nationally ranked football team, I was surprised to see it had suffered at the hands of democrat propaganda. Over the years, I’ve known many Big Red students and faculty. Not one leaned even slightly left. They’re well known for their conservatism, self-reliance and lovers of freedom. On the other hand, Norman is a college town and that says a lot about a town’s political posture.

  4. democrats and the RINOs need to be polishing up their resumes in preparation of the 2022, 2024 elections….

  5. You would have to be a total idiot to vote for a democrat these days. They are actively trying to destroy our country. They are nothing but filth.

  6. Yeah for these two! Now folks, we know how to defeat the leftists that try to over take our government. I’m 78 and too dog gone old, but this garbage hadn’t hit our little town in South Texas yet. If it ever does, old as the hills or not I will either run or support the people who do. Defund the police! Those folks do not have two working brain cells among the whole lot of them!

  7. FUND FUND FUND OUR POLICE! We need our law enforcement officers and so do the very idiots trying to crush them! Thee people are the most ridiculous and IGNORANT of any lot that I have ever seen! They will all be crying when THEY need to call on Police for safety now won’t they? They WILL! THAT i inevitable!

  8. GREAT!!! Let’s see more of this….Chicago needs to pay attention and STOP putting nitwit demonRats in office.
