In yet another disturbing look into the heart of the Bernie Sanders campaign, at a rally on Tuesday, Bernie supporters publically insulted and humiliated law enforcement officers that were hired to protect them.
The New York Post reports:
Rock band The Strokes taunted a police officer with their anti-cop anthem “New York City Cops” as the law enforcer and event security confronted fans rushing the stage during their performance at a Bernie Sanders’ rally in New Hampshire…
…At one point, an officer seemingly tried to get Casablancas’ attention, as the singer belted out the chorus, which goes: “New York City cops, they ain’t too smart” and ignored him, chuckling.
University rep Erika Mantz confirmed to The Post in a statement: “Contract security asked police to help control crowd access to the stage and performers. There was no further incident.”
It’s the ultimate expression of juvenile arrogance – a band mocking the people putting their lives on the line to protect them. One thing is clear – no police department should ever volunteer its officers to protect the band again.
Let’s see how they do without the brave men and women of law enforcement to protect them. It’s worth noting that Kelly Kiley, (manager of Rough Trade Records), was quoted in a 2017 story as saying, “I’ve never known a band to get security so quickly.” It’s only right for them to ditch the security if they’re going to mock them from stage.
More concerning for Americans is the fact that the Sanders campaign didn’t condemn these taunts, at least not at the time I’m writing this.
This isn’t the first time that the Sanders campaign has attacked cops. Bernie himself caused controversy by advising young minorities to comply with police orders, not because it was the right thing to do, but because if they didn’t, they’d be “shot in the back of the head,” a vicious slander that smears all cops as murderers.
And it’s even worse among his staff. One staffer actually called for cops to be beaten after a Bernie victory.
Bernie Sanders and the young leftists on his campaign don’t respect our cops, our freedoms, our institutions and our way of life. It’s up to Americans to stop him from ever getting anywhere near power.
