Defund the police—wait, no, my car’s been stolen, help! Woke political figures see their ideology falter as reality sets in

Whether it’s a ‘Marxist’ co-founder of Black Lives Matter investing millions in real estate, or an Atlanta politician calling cops when his Mercedes is taken, all the cute slogans go out the window when reality sets in.

The term, “when the rubber hits the road” is used whenever an idea that seems good in theory meets practical application – basically, whenever you try to apply your own perceived genius to everyday life. Sometimes this works wonderfully, at other times the proverbial rubber explodes and everything you thought that was going to work doesn’t. Such is the way that the woke ideology goes, because it seems more and more that those who follow these ideas end up either abandoning them or seeing the error of their ways.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors is a good recent example. Just yesterday, she resigned from her position as the executive director of the BLM foundation. The “trained Marxist” was recently outed as having spent $3.2 million on real estate. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” seems to go out the window pretty quickly once you have a certain number of zeros in your checking account. She blamed those darn right-wingers for making it into news, of course. 

Unbeknownst to her, she’s only one “meddling kids” rant from sounding like a Scooby-Doo villain. And, like those villains, you can’t blame the person who does the unmasking of your own deeds, especially if they conflict with the ideology you say you have adopted.

Another interesting story is that of Antonio Brown, a current Atlanta city councilman and mayoral candidate. His recent past seems a bit sketchy, given he’s under investigation for possible fraud, but his vote to try to defund Atlanta’s police department of $73m is the more interesting bit. Especially when you consider that, when he had his car stolen this week, the first people he called were the police. After he got his vehicle back, he penned a tweet that seemed as if it heralded a change of attitude: “Thanks to @Atlanta_Police for taking swift action to address the situation. It’s time we Reimagine Atlanta Together.”
