A veto-proof majority of nine Minneapolis City Councillors appear to have endorsed the full abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department, making it likely that the city will soon proceed with a radical social experiment in which a major American city will go without law enforcement .
Jeremiah Ellison, a Minneapolis City Councillor and the son of left-wing pro-ANTIFA Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, was among the first of the city councilors to stand behind the full abolition of the city police department. Lisa Bender, the President of the City Council, followed shortly after, moving the proposal towards political reality.
The Appeal reported that nine members of the city council signed onto a pledge that endorses the disbanding of the police department on Sunday. The amount of councilors who have signed will place the initiative beyond the possibility of a mayor’s veto.
Bender stated on Sunday that the council’s plan to abolish the police department will “end policing as we know it, and to recreate systems of public safety that actually keep us safe.” It’s still unclear exactly what the Minneapolis Council’s replacement for the existing law enforcement system will look like, and the possibilities range from little more than a PR-friendly rebrand of the Minneapolis Police Department to an unprecedented social experiment in which de facto militias will step in the void of previous civilian law enforcement.
Progressive Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey was forced to depart from an anti-police protest in a literal walk of shame on Saturday, being aggressively jeered and booed after he refused to commit to the disbanding of the police department. Frey attempted to deflect away from the issue with vague progressive platitudes, but when a protest organizer demanded that he answer the question, he was viciously booed and quite literally exiled from the protest event.
Frey is also hoping to receive more than $55 million in bailout funds from the federal government in order to repair the damages inflicted upon the city through the race riots he failed to contain as mayor. The abolition of the police department all but assures that his request will be flatly denied, as the possibility of the city being ransacked by rioters and looters in the future after the police department is abolished is considerably more likely.
The social experiment will ultimately place the left’s vision of a police-free society to the test.
MUST WATCH: COVID Survivor and Medical Doctor Rand Paul Takes Dr. Fauci to School on Bogus Predictions
Rand Paul unloaded on Dr. Anthony Fauci on May 12, 2020 during a Senate hearing where Senators grilled Fauci about the government’s response to the Wuhan virus.
Paul has been a major skeptic of many state governments’ handling of the pandemic. The Kentucky Senator called attention to the very uneven impact the virus has had across the nation.
Many journalists on Twitter were incensed by Paul’s remarks. Aaron Rupar of Vox covered one of Paul’s main objections to the government’s response.
Rand Paul: "In rural states we never really reached any sort of pandemic levels in Kentucky and other states … outside of New England, we've had a relatively benign course for this virus nationwide." (More than 81,000 Americans are dead.) pic.twitter.com/tQSZvU6gfx

Paul also brought up points about the negative impact of keeping kids at home and preventing them from going back to school.
News anchor Melissa Francis noted this:
Great point @RandPaul says keeping kids home from school will hurt low income children the most because they are less likely to have a parent at home helping them learn. Fauci responds that his recommendations are based on health not taking into account other harm.

Paul dropped the final hammer on Fauci towards the end of his speech by saying that ““As much as I respect you Dr. Fauci, I don’t think you’re the end all. I don’t think you’re the one person who gets to make a decision.”

Unlike most health experts and busybody politicians, Paul understands the overall impact of shutdowns.
The Wuhan virus does pose a threat, but it does not necessitate such a heavy-handed response from the government which cause even more harm and ruin the economic livelihoods of millions of Americans
Dr. Fauci on the other hand remains steadfast in his belief that the U.S. should not reopen quickly.
Fauci stated the following at the virtual testimony from his home in Washington:
“My concern is that if some areas, city, states, or what have you, jump over those various checkpoints, and prematurely open up without having the capability of being able to respond effectively and efficiently, my concern is that we will start to see little spikes that might turn into outbreaks.”
More and more Americans are becoming skeptical of Fauci’s approach to the pandemic. With numerous citizens across the country being subjected to unconstitutional shutdowns that infringe on civil liberties, Americans are gradually waking up to the reality that governments have not only bungled in their approach to combatting the pandemic, but they’re also taking advantage of it to advance anti-freedom policies.
