It’s insane that our elected leaders are even discussing the idea of defunding police.
Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan put the issue into perspective during a hearing on Wednesday.
FOX News reports:
Jordan seeks DOJ briefing on Antifa, slams ‘defund the police’ push as ‘complete insanity’
EXCLUSIVE: The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday requested a briefing from Attorney General Bill Barr on the Justice Department’s actions in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, covering everything from the federal civil rights investigation to the push to designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization.
In a letter obtained by Fox News, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, requested information about the DOJ’s efforts to prevent peaceful protests over Floyd’s death from escalating into violence. He cited reports that law enforcement suspect Antifa exploited some of these demonstrations to cause mayhem…
Jordan also weighed in on the “defund the police” movement, which has gained momentum in recent days, winning over Minneapolis lawmakers but meeting some resistance among Democrats on Capitol Hill.
Jordan called it “the most ridiculous public policy proposal I’ve ever heard.”
“This is complete insanity — the idea that you’re not going to have a police department in your city, that you’re going to defund the very people who risk their lives to protect all of our communities, makes absolutely no sense to me and my guess is it makes absolutely no sense to the 330 million people in this country.”
Watch the video below:
Jordan is absolutely correct here:
Principles Americans know:
1. What happened to George Floyd was terrible and should never happen again.
2. The vast majority of police are good and risk their lives for us daily.
3. Defunding the police is insanity. pic.twitter.com/G01Qc1sjsY

Democrats have gone over the edge. They’re not even dealing in reality anymore.
