I will assume that all here on this site are aware of the on going's of the Congresswomen. Personally I feel they are quite disingenuous and harmful to everyone here right now in the USA. I say everyone including the migrants. So take a look.

'Squad' Members Paid Thousands for Security While Calling for Defunded Police



In the first three months of this year, Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, and Cori Bush of Missouri spent almost $80,000 on personal “security services,” according to The Daily Caller.



Four members of “the squad” — a sextet of socialism-pushing Democrats in the House of Representatives — spent tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars on personal security staff while publicly demonizing law enforcement and demanding police defunding. It’s the latest example of the bottomless hypocrisy of Democrats, who insist that border walls don’t work while barricading themselves behind steel fences in the people’s Capitol. They also champion gun confiscation from legal firearm owners and police pullbacks from your neighborhood while hiding behind taxpayer-funded, armed security guards.


The bottom line to all of this is do they think they even care about it?

No

Part of their delusions of grandeur...

....it's ESSENTIAL for them to deny others the services and security THEY have, to boost their exaggerated sense of narcissistic self-importance.....

They need it.
They are afraid that the people they have been scamming all this time will one day wake up and realize they have been scammed by them.
It’s only a matter of time.

I bet those guys had guns too. Possibly even fully automatic!



If it weren't for double standards, these pieces of excrement wouldn't have any standards at all.

Holy crap CPO"s are paid properly over there!


ETA: nevermind that's 4 principals so not really that expensive if there is 5 bodyguards per person. That would be a driver, a PPO, a follow car, an advance vehicle with one extra covert pedestrian escort. Especially after the companies took their cut off each bodyguard they quoted on. And that's a bare minimum having people fulfill more then one roll.

If they only have a driver and a personal bodyguard their protection is useless.

themselves from the dregs of society,do they still have the
Capital building walled off from us?

How is it hypocritical?

Defunding the police does not mean abolishing it entirely. It also didn't mean crime doesn't exist.

The simple fact of the matter is that if we look at the amount of money spent on police in this country it's only slightly less than the amount that China spends on its military. In other words police in the US are the third most well funded military in the world.

What justifies that level of spending? Is crime that much worse in the US? If so, why are we not spending money researching the root cause for that and trying to fix it? If not, then we're drastically overspending on police.

Either way money that is being sent on police can be directed elsewhere for better use. That is where people are coming from when they say we need to defund the police.

It’s funny that in most Democrat held cities, that is where the most crime is.
The only ones that want to defund the police are the Dems, why do they want their cities reduced to raging dumpster fires worse than they already are?

The root cause is...some people have something that
others want and they will do anything to get it!

Because they want the U.N. peacekeepers to come to
their rescue.

They are paying either way. In this case, more.

Democrat cities that have briefly experimented with your "defund the police" have had murder rates soar by 30 % PERCENT !!!

Those 30% extra dead people are on you and those that advocate "defund the police"

So you're saying that crime is worse in the US than anywhere else in the world? So why don't we take the billions of dollars increase that would go to police budgets next year and spend that on researching why crime is worse in the US?

At what point is enough enough? When police in the US have a larger budget than the Chinese military? When we are spending more money to police our own citizens than we are to defend our borders?
