With young liberals taking the streets by the thousands these past days, seemingly protesting for the sake of protesting, after the media and pop culture celebrities have deemed it to be the hip thing to do, America is witnessing the end result of “decades” of progressive indoctrination on college campuses.
That’s the observation of investigative reporter Sarah Carter, who responded to a white liberal female explaining the absurd notion of disbanding police departments — this being the very same crowd dong its level best to disarm you!
The trouble is, the liberal female is Lisa Bender, a city council member in the city of Minneapolis, where George Floyd died after being seen in a troubling video pinned to the ground with a police officer’s knee on his neck.
A police officer who reportedly had 18 complaints filed against him in the Democrat-run city, yet remained on the streets.

Bender was discussing police reform after Minneapolis city council passed a supermajority vote to disband the city’s police force.
CAMEROTA: “What if in the middle of the night my home is broken into. Who do I call?”
BENDER: “Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.” pic.twitter.com/WhubQ9yJIf

Appearing on CNN, Bender attributed the expectation of police protection a product of “white privilege” when host Alisyn Camerota asked, “What if, in the middle of the night, my home is broken into. Who do I call?”
“Yes, I mean, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too — and I know that that comes from a place of privilege,” Bender said.
“Because for those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done,” she added.
On Sunday, nine out of 12 members — a veto-proof majority — of the Minneapolis city council signed a pledge to begin the process of disbanding the police department as it currently exists.
Carter nailed it when she responded to Bender: “We have to stop and ask ourselves how ideas this moronic can be the loudest voice. The danger to our democracy is real and it started decades ago in our college and universities.”

As for our colleges and universities, at the top of the Marxist-inspired lesson list is “critical race theory,” a hard-left concept which claims all white people are inherently racist and that racism is permeated throughout the system of government. For what its worth, many city governments, like Detroit and Baltimore, are predominantly black.
The extreme theory that has gone mainstream in post-Obama America claims racism is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of color, as explained by Britannica.
The “white guilt” prevalent among much of today’s youth is a byproduct of the left pushing this theory.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
This is insane!
Democrats like Joe Biden want to defund the police. Then, they call Americans “privileged” for worrying about safety.
There's nothing privileged about wanting to protect your family.

Please understand that most Minnesotans are sane, rational, and hard-working people. I am shocked at the idiocy of Bender. Actually saying that versus just thinking it…

The system is working for me. I can call the police too, so I’m privileged! Thanks for clearing that up. For a minute I thought the Constitution was just pulling my chain when it explains that all US citizens are entitled to equal protection in every state.

Let me get this straight. When someone invades your home, and you need law enforcement, that’s white privilege.
Nuts, but this will insure a conservative victory in November.

The only force that done as much harm to this country as the MSM has is our education system. For decades they have brainwashed our kids and delete out history in the classrooms.

Well American citizens (in Minneapolis) get your fire arms ready.. you are your own protection now..

Wow, so this woman blames the victim if their home is invaded. Rather than defend one’s property, we should have empathy as our lives and property are threatened. Not going back to Minnesota.

Now Biden must answer this question of defunding the police
Is Biden gonna alienate independents and moderate Democrats by being for defunding?
Or is Biden gonna alienate the radical left by being against defunding?
