Leftist Washington Post Backtracks on Its Position of Defunding the Police

The liberal Washington Post was one of many establishment rags which embraced the radical progressive idea of ‘defunding the police’ in the wake of the George Floyd riots in 2020.

But now, the outlet has appeared to have taken a sharp u-turn on its anti-law enforcement stance.

After years of violent shootings and soaring crime, WaPo is now telling its readers that D.C. needs more police, not less.

Too little too late?

As FOX News reports:

The Post  editorial board shifts view on ‘Defunding the Police’ since George Floyd riots: D.C. ‘needs more officers’

Recent editorials from the Washington Post changed the publication’s “Defund the Police” perspective with calls for increased police presence in the D.C. area.

On Friday, the paper’s Editorial Board published a piece arguing “Why police officers need to be in D.C. schools.”

“Many cities yanked officers out of schools while reassessing policing after George Floyd’s 2020 murder. However well-intentioned, the experiment has left kids more vulnerable and classrooms less safe amid surging youth violence. That’s why a notable number have already reversed course — including, in this region, Alexandria and Montgomery County. Other jurisdictions, from Boston to Phoenix, are actively debating whether to follow,” The Post wrote. “D.C. should join them.”

The Washington Post became one of the many outlets joining radical Democrats in their calls to defund the police following George Floyd’s death.

“Weeks of sustained anger and grief after the police killing of George Floyd have reignited a public debate over police brutality in the United States,” a June 2020 editorial stated.

“Alongside demands for police reform, another demand has surfaced: Defund the police. This provocative slogan at its most constructive represents a welcome call to reimagine public safety in the United States,” the editorial added.

“Rethinking which institutions truly serve public safety and imagining new ones should be part of that conversation. This work is arduous and demanding — as many community organizers who have been doing it for decades can testify. But no one ever said reimagining public safety would be easy,” The Post wrote.

As a quick reminder, here is a Washington Post headline from 2020 which spouts ‘defunding the police’ is a call for a ‘safer America.’

For years Conservatives have been pushing back against the idea of ‘defunding the police.’

However, it fell on deaf ears as the liberal media branded anyone who argued against the notion as ‘racist.’

WaPo is just a fetid, disgusting cesspool of democrat party cult lies, slander, censorship, and bullying to support their psychotic FALSE narratives.
