LEAKED AUDIO: Joe Biden Tells Democrats Not To Use ‘Defund The Police’ Before Georgia Elections

Democrats have caught on to the fact that ‘defund the police’ is a political loser.

Many of them still believe it, but they’re realizing that it hurts them when they say it out loud.

In a new leaked audio, Biden can be heard speaking to other Democrats about the Georgia runoff elections and discouraging them from using the words because it hurt them in November.

In leaked recording, Biden says GOP used ‘defund the police’ to ‘beat the living hell’ out of Democrats

President-elect Joe Biden appeared to blame the “defund the police” movement for contributing to surprising Democratic down-ballot losses last month, telling civil rights leaders this week that they should proceed carefully on criminal justice issues.

“That’s how they beat the living hell out of us across the country, saying that we’re talking about defunding the police. We’re not. We’re talking about holding them accountable,” Biden said Tuesday in a virtual meeting with civil rights leaders, according to audio excerpts posted Thursday in a podcast from The Intercept.

Biden pledged that he would follow through on his promises to address systemic racism, but he warned about getting “too far ahead of ourselves” with critical Senate runoff elections in Georgia on Jan. 5.

“We can go very far. It matters how we do it. I think it matters how we do it,” Biden said.

It’s funny how Joe Biden tries to claim that this is something the Republicans did to the Democrats.

All the Republicans did was point out the fact that many Democrats were saying this and actually advocated this as policy.

Many of them still believe in it, they just won’t say it out loud anymore.
