Many people were rightfully disturbed with the death of George Floyd and supported calls for justice for what had occurred.
So when the protests arose, many who thought the killing of Floyd was unjustifiable thought that’s what the protests were about and believed they were supportive of the protests too, like this officer here.

No, sir, I don’t think you really would, if you knew what they wanted.
While that’s what some protesters may support, that’s not all the Black Lives Matter group wants. George Floyd’s death is being hijacked for what they really want, which is a defunding of the police and eliminating prisons, as part of their “revolution” against capitalism and radical transformation of society. So if you march with their group or donate to them as many corporations have, that’s what you are endorsing.
But Democrats and media glide right over that, don’t cover it at all or try to spin it as something less radical than it is.
Today’s candidate for worst Orwellian spin? MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle.
According to Ruhle, defunding the police does NOT mean cutting the pay of police officers or taking their pensions away. Wait, what? What the heck does she think it means? That’s exactly what it means. Indeed, if you listen to the BLM and other radical leftists explain this, it means the complete elimination of the police.
How can anyone think “defunding the police” doesn’t mean cutting their pay when that’s the very minimum of what it means? She got blasted so fully and so quickly, she’s already deleted the tweet.
It looks like she deleted it…

But they’re so eager to spin and defend the indefensible radical left that they make such an insane leap of logic.
You might want to look up the definition of "defund."

This tweet denying the reality of words would be dystopic and scary even if it weren’t coming from someone purporting to be a journalist. https://t.co/crFPpCT8ON

But that’s where we’re at now, with media that will say anything to help the agenda, even if it’s completely illogical, makes no sense and makes them look like complete idiots.
