House Dems Unanimously Block Resolution Condemning Violence and Rioting
[Free Beacon] House Democrats unanimously blocked a resolution condemning acts of violence and rioting—including the "deliberate targeting of law enforcement officers"—in the wake of George Floyd's death.

The resolution, which was introduced by Rep. Greg Steube (R., Fla.) late Thursday morning, condemned Floyd's killing at the hands of police, calling it "inconsistent with the values and conduct expected of law enforcement officers." The resolution also supported peaceful protesters, but it noted that protests have been "exploited by violent extremists" carrying out "acts of violence, looting, destruction of business and personal property, and additional loss of life."

Rep. Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) spoke in favor of the resolution, arguing that while Floyd's death was "wrong as wrong could be," there is a "big difference between peaceful protest and rioting." Jordan also spoke against defunding the police, calling it "one of the craziest public policy proposals I have ever seen."

"I think [the resolution] is consistent with where American values are, consistent with the problems we face, consistent with the serious situation we are in," Jordan said. "If we allow this ’defund the police' concept to happen ... it will not only be tough for police officers, we all know that, but the communities they serve—what will happen there is frightening."

No House Democrats voted in favor of Steube's resolution. Rep. Justin Amash (I., Mich.) voted with Republicans to support the measure.

A number of Democratic lawmakers have supported the call to defund police following Floyd's killing, including far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.). Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) advocated for the dismantling of the Minneapolis Police Department in June, calling it "rotten to the root" and a "cancer."

While major cities across the United States have already proposed or approved slashing police budgets, decades of research indicates that better-funded police departments drive down crime and create social benefit. Officials in New York City, Hartford, Austin, Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Los Angeles have all entertained defunding or abolishing police, despite holding some of the highest violent-crime rates in the nation.

#1 They're communist anarchists, it's what they do.

#2 By this vote, they have also gone on record as supporting these violent extremist acts.

Now I think, I better understand why they need Mail In Ballots. Because who in their right minds would vote for a brain drained candidate and support a collection of anarchists that are threatening the very foundation for guaranteed personal rights and liberties over Government?

I still think the LSD's will seek to stage another major civil disruption event to hold them over until Nov 2020 or promote some of their Political Agenda items needed accomplish their real end-game.

So naturally I have to wonder what they have planned for US in the coming weeks? Could it something related to more Gun Controls maybe?

#6 Pelosi and the rest of the whole sick crew remind me of a 60's cartoon by Dan O'Neill featuring Karl Marx the Commie Turtle. The line was something like "someday he'll drop his shell and the world will see just another lumpy lizard." Shell and mask dropped, Dems, please enjoy the consequences.

#11 So the Dems are in favor of violence, destruction of property, rioting, arson and murder?

#12 So the Dems are in favor of violence, destruction of property, rioting, arson and murder?

That appears to be the gist of it.

#13  PELOSI: “And I’m very proud, before the Judiciary Committee — that before he testified he said to me, ‘Madam Speaker, do you think that I can tell George’s daughter that his name will be always remembered because you’ll name the bill for him. And I said, ‘Well I’ll recommend that to the Judiciary Committee and to the — to the Congressional Black Caucus who have shaped the bill, but I only will do that if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George Kirby’s name. And he said it is.”

#14 I think it would be more insulting to you if they'd pass such a pointless resolution. I prefer my enemy to be unappologetic and overt.

"We hereby condemn this act. Ptooey ! We say."

Was Pelosi referring to George Kirby of the Kirby vacuum cleaner fortune?
