Republican Sen. Tim Scott has lived with racism all his life. Since entering Congress, he’s worked on race-related issues. He was the chief author of the Opportunity Zones section of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. He’s worked hand-in-hand with HUD Secretary Carson to bring economic opportunities to minority neighborhoods. Frankly, he’s got more credibility on race-related issues than any politician, including President Obama.

Democrats are losing credibility on race-related issues because they’re constantly thinking of how this or that event can be converted into a political advantage. That isn’t how normal people think. They just think about doing the right thing, then making it happen. Yesterday, Democrats ripped the mask off. They exposed themselves as interested in race-related issues only in the context of winning control of the Senate majority.

Yesterday, Senate Democrats exposed themselves of putting a higher priority on partisanship than on doing the right thing when they voted to not even start debate on Tim Scott’s JUSTICE Act. Democrats voted to not start debate on the bill. Democrats voted to not let the amendment process start. Minnesota senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith are constantly touting their bipartisan record. They voted against starting debate. Think about that.

Democrat senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, who theoretically represent Minnesota, the state where George Floyd was allegedly murdered, voted against the JUSTICE Act, aka police reform. Minneapolis is the city where Floyd lost his life. Their city council wants to “dismantle” the Minneapolis Police Department, aka the MPD.

This pair should be leading the fight for the JUSTICE Act. Instead, these Democrats voted against it. That isn’t a sign of bipartisanship. That’s proof of bad faith negotiating. If I lived in Minneapolis, especially in one of those minority neighborhoods that were looted, then destroyed, I’d take it out on the politicians that didn’t protect me.

This is typical Democrat thinking:

This is typical GOP get-positive-things-done thinking:

That’s quite a contrast. Republicans want to fix existing problems. Democrats want to stoke racial fears ahead of their next campaign. It isn’t that Democrats want to fix things. That isn’t part of the Democrats’ recent history. Democrats used to be dealmakers back before they lost their minds. Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Bill Clinton were dealmakers. By the way, where is Bill Clinton these days? We see Hillary too often. Ditto with President Obama. Bill Clinton is nowhere to be found. That isn’t difficult to figure out. Bill Clinton doesn’t want his legacy tarnished by today’s Democrats.

Things aren’t working too well for the anti-police Democrats:

A progressive Minneapolis neighborhood that pledged not to call the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd is now dealing with a 300-strong homeless encampment in a local park, according to reports. Traffic has reportedly increased in the neighborhood around Powderhorn Park, as drug dealers seek to meet their clientele displaced during the civil unrest, rioting and looting following Floyd’s death at the end of May. At least one person overdosed inside the park and was brought out by an ambulance. Prostitution has also been reported in the area. Residents though have agreed to “check their privilege” and “protect people of color” by not involving law enforcement to report instances of property damage, according to the New York Times.

By checking their privilege, there’s been an upsurge in prostitution and drug overdoses. Isn’t that lovely? Thanks to the Democrats’ bad faith and their unwillingness to negotiate during this historic opportunity, major cities are falling apart. Needless to say, these cities are run by Democrats.

If you think that Democrats care about crime, you’re kidding yourself. There’s no proof that Democrats are willing to do the things that are required to maintain a civil society.
