After spending a year calling for the defunding of police forces across the country, both the media and many on the Left want to ignore that under-policing is actually causing an increase in violent crime because to acknowledge and admit this would prove they’re stupid.

Meanwhile, the rest of us know they were wrong and it was stupid to push for the police to be defunded but we digress.

Zaid Jilani was good enough to write a thread on this very topic and it’s pretty exceptional.

Filter bubbles.

Bingo.

Keep going.

See, if they can blame ‘root causes’ of the violence they can ignore the very real issue of under-policing because again, this is not about reality but their egos, agenda, and narrative.

But hey, at least people are still woke and stuff.

Bingo.

This actually makes sense.

Huh.

HA HA HA HA HA HA

Wait, we don’t want that crime in our neighborhood.

Duh.

But pandemic!

Trump!

Reeeeeee!

Did we mention we’re living in an exceptionally silly and stupid time?

What Zaid said.
