NOT A JOKE: Dem Senators Say ‘Every Police Department’ in USA Must Ban ‘Tear Gas, Rubber Bullets’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.14.20

Democratic Senator Ed Markey raised eyebrows even among his moderate colleagues in Congress Monday; dangerously asserting “every police department” in the country must “ban tear gas and rubber and plastic bullets.”

“Portland police routinely attack peaceful protestors with brute force. We must disarm these officers, and every other police department in America, of weapons of war, and enact a nationwide ban on tear gas, rubber and plastic bullets, and bean bag rounds,” posted Markey on social media.

 

“Our streets are not meant to be battlefields, and law enforcement shouldn’t be using weapons of war against protestors and other Americans,” said Senator Markey. “Law enforcement’s use of tear gas also compounds the effects of structural racism, because we know communities of color are already suffering disproportionately during this global respiratory pandemic. It’s time we stop using these potentially lethal weapons against our own people. I thank Senator Sanders for his partnership on this legislation and urge our colleagues to join us in protecting the health and rights of the American people.”

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in on the Democratic Primary in Massachusetts Tuesday night; bizarrely stating Sen. Ed Markey “overcame the odds” and won despite being in Congress since 1976.

“On a personal note, when I first got to Congress the reception I got in many spaces was v chilly. Ed Markey wasn’t afraid. He offered his expertise & partnership. He wasn’t scared of big policy & didn’t use kid gloves. It‘s great to watch him overcome the odds and win tonight,” posted AOC on social media.

 

 

“Sen. Ed Markey has defeated Rep. Joe Kennedy in the Democratic Senate primary in Massachusetts, notching a big win for progressives who made Markey’s campaign a national cause this summer,” added Politico following the closely-watched election.

Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey viciously attacked the President of the United States on social media Monday; saying Donald Trump is “sc*m for fueling racist hate and violence in our country.”

“Donald trump is scum for fueling racist hate and violence in our country,” posted Markey on Twitter.

Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser unveiled a citywide 7pm curfew Monday just hours after violent protests left more than 50 Secret Service Agents injured and hundreds more harmed throughout the Capital.

“Every American should be outraged by the murder of George Floyd,” Bowser said. “I want to implore D.C. residents to think of ways to be part of the solution, not part of the destruction.”

“Washington, D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham said 88 people were arrested on Sunday night. Half of those were charged with ‘felony righting.’ Seven police officers were injured but none were hospitalized,” reports The Hill.
