Step 1: Defund and demoralize police, causing crime to skyrocket as police quit, retire, or stop policing.
Step 1 (addendum): Use vaccine mandate to accelerate police quitting or retiring.
Step 2: Become outraged at the increase in crime due to lack of police. Disregard that the crime increases is the direct result of Step 1.
Step 3: Use Step 2 to justify creating a national or federally supported (the way the Dept of Education has influence in local school districts) police system that (like the Dept of Education) is highly political and highly partisan.
This police system will do little to stop crime and will actually be boots on the ground political enforcers.
Think of the videos from the UK and Australia of police arresting people over Facebook posts and misgendering activists.
The police that the Squad create won’t stop CVS and Walgreens from being shoplifted into bankruptcy.
It will go after conservatives for the “violence” of misgendering or denying someone’s lived experience or spreading misinformation.
If 2020 and 2021 have taught me anything, it’s that the difference between a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory and really is about six months.
