The English word hypocrite comes from the Greek word, ‘hypokrites’ which referred to stage players or actors. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, it was a compound word that literally meant “an interpreter from underneath” and referred to actors who wore masks to play their role and spoke from underneath a mask.
Merriam-Webster dictionary writes: “The Greek word took on an extended meaning to refer to any person who was wearing a figurative mask and pretending to be someone or something they were not.”
And a former police officer has called out several democrats for being ‘hypokrites’, “pretending to be someone or something they are not.”
Because several of them are calling for the defunding of the police and while they are saying one thing from under their masks, they all have taxpayer-funded security details protecting them day and night.
If police are not needed for the rest of Americans, then these ‘stage players’ should dismiss their protection.
Former police officer Tom Homan, speaking at Saturday’s pro-cop “We Back Blue” event in D.C., slammed progressive politicians for loudly calling for defunding police. He singled out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and challenged them to “lead by example” by defunding their own protection first.
