He’s going to regret this one.
According to Breitbart News, former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel attacked Republicans stating they objected to a mask mandate as an infringement on personal liberties and freedoms, but saw sending “paramilitary troops” into Portland was not.
Emanuel stated, “One is, you have to be very clear. The police and the superintendent of that police department are in charge, because the federal operation undermines community policing. If they’re there in coordination with the local police department, and the police department is in charge, that’s one aspect of how to deal with crime or, in the situation of Portland and Seattle, destruction of federal property.”
He added, “Second is, I think it’s a bit ironic for the administration on two points. One is, they’re holding Byrne Grants for the federal — for police departments across the United States for the last three years. And now to say all of a sudden they’re for public safety and for law and order is a bit ironic.”
He continued, “Second is, I don’t understand the Republicans. Somehow, wearing a mask is an infringement on your personal liberties and freedoms, but sending in paramilitary troops uphold American values. That will never work.” You can read the full article here.
