BLM ‘defund police’ hypocrisy

Perhaps, hypocrisy, should be nominated as the word of the year for 2020. Not only do we have Democrat elitists wilfully violating their own lockdown rules, (READ: Rules For Thee But Not For Me: A Rundown Of Lockdown Leftists Ignoring Their Own Rules) but after repeatedly calling for police defunding, we now have Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists in Washington, DC complaining that the police didn’t do enough to protect them during recent protests.

No one denies they have the right to protection, but BLM should have followed their own advice and asked for counsellors to deal with the situation. But “rules for thee, but not for me” does seem to be the theme of 2020.

Breitbart explains:

Black Lives Matter DC activists complained on Sunday that the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) failed to protect them while continuing to call for defunding police. The apparently conflicting statements came during a press conference held in Black Lives Matter Plaza Sunday afternoon.

Black Lives Matter DC Anthony Lorenzo Green said during the Sunday press conference that the mayor and police department failed “to protect the rights of D.C. residents” during the Stop the Steal Trump rally held in the nation’s capital on Saturday. ”

In June, BLM DC listed defunding the police as one of its demands during the city’s budget hearings, DCist.com reported. […]

The local news outlet reported:

On Saturday, protesters in D.C. made this point as concretely as possible, painting “Defund the Police” in large yellow letters next to the “Black Lives Matter” slogan Mayor Muriel Bowser had painted on a two-block stretch of 16th Street on Friday.
