The modern-day Democrat party has largely lost their minds. Yes, the United States is the greatest experiment of freedom that the world has ever seen, but some experiments should be left on the thesis paper.
Colleges have been a breeding ground for social justice work. They have likely stirred up more outrage than anywhere else because of the radical opinions professors have been teaching students and the racially divided safe spaces that colleges have created.
It is where paying attention to local elections. Christina Bohannan, Iowa State Representative in District 85, said she would get elected in Iowa’s 2nd District with Iowa City, the Quad cities, Ottumwa, and Burlington.
Bohannan, as faculty chairwoman of the University of Iowa Law school’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, wrote in a letter to students and staff that they should “support the movement” in the wake of the George Floyd death by funding the Minnesota Freedom Fund and National Bail Out Fund.
National Bail Out Fund is a “fundraiser to bail out organizers working to transform the criminal justice system, and Minnesota Freedom Fund is a fundraiser providing relief in Minneapolis.” Bohannan suggests in the letter “or researches a bail fund providing direct relief to protestors in your city.”
It should wake up many people to the radical agenda of leftist ideologies, and they should shy away from these types of candidates. But we don’t live in that society anymore. Defunding the police has turned from a memorable catchphrase into a realistic reforming of the justice system.
The Minnesota Freedom Fund raised “$35 million as riots swept the nation in the weeks that followed Floyd’s death” and used very little money to bail out protesters but spent money to release an alleged child rapist. Better yet, Vice President Kamala Harris urged her followers to donate to the fund.
Harris tweeted, “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protest for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”
Incredibly dignified conduct from the Vice President of the United States.
Even while most Black Americans oppose removing police officers, the National Bail Out Fund took radical positions to “dismantle, defund, and abolish the police to protect Black lives.” It turns out it doesn’t protect Black lives at all.
Bohannan’s campaign site says she is running for Congress “because she believes we need less bickering in Washington, and more working together.” She may not mean it, but she said it.
