Rules for thee but not for me.
The Democrat Party’s glaring hypocrisy has been in full view for quite some time now. The media has repeatedly caught Democrats abandoning their own Covid-19 mandates and rules when it’s comfortable for them. Most recently, there has been a distinct exodus of Democrats from spreading Defund the Police rhetoric now that it’s been made clear it’s not a winning issue for the party going into next year’s midterms.
However, progressive Democrats are still pushing to defund police across the country calling them “systemically racist” and a threat to Americans, that is until they realize it’s their own safety on the line. Progressive Democrats have spent over $100,000 in personal security funds while advocating for the defund the police movement.
According to reports by Fox News:
Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign spent over $10,000 on private policing with Cest Bond Collective, Three Bridges NY LLC and Tullis World Wide Protection, eclipsing Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s, D-Mass., personal security bill of almost $4,000 with Ware Security Consultants Inc., FEC records show.
Omar’s FEC records revealed the defund law enforcement advocate has spent over $22,000 on private security with Aegis Logistics LLC and Lloyd Security Services while Bush took the cake by throwing down another $65,000 on private security.
Bush’s campaign spent $64,141.26 on private security between the beginning of July and late September, the Federal Election Commission records show. The cash was dished out to a handful of firms, including Peace Security, RS&T Security Consulting, Aegis Logistics, Whole Armor Executive Protection & Security and Nathaniel Davis, whose payments are sent to the same address as her campaign headquarters.
Additionally, the hiring of private police was paid for by the campaigns — meaning donor dollars that likely supported the “Squad” members’ calls to defund police are now being used to rent private police.
While it’s no secret these three Democrats are giant hypocrites this might just take the cake.
