Black Lives Matter appeared to have gotten a big lesson in political expediency on Tuesday night. During his State of the Union speech, President Joe Biden urged funding of the nation’s police departments.

Biden stated, “We should all agree: The answer is not to defund the police. The answer is to FUND the police with the resources and training they need to protect our communities.”

You could almost hear the air being let out of the far-left’s balloon.

But if you didn’t, they were happy to let you know about it:

“Like It Never Even Happened”

In an amazing reversal, Democrats cheered Biden’s call to fund police as if they had never heard of defunding the police. They cheered things like providing resources and training. Who are these people and what have they done with the Democrat Party?

Vice President Kamala Harris, who urged people to contribute to the Minnesota Freedom bail fund – a fund that sought to free rioters during George Floyd demonstrations in 2020, was now popping up out of her seat to applaud funding police.

Democrats applauding police? What has changed?

Watch: President Biden won bipartisan applause during his first State of the Union address for saying the solution to protecting communities is not to defund the police, but to “fund the police” with resources and training #SOTU2022

Certainly nothing has changed for Black Lives Matter. They made it clear that not everyone agrees with Biden’s call to fund the police:

No, @joebiden, we don’t “all agree.”
We still say #DefundThePolice and hold killer cops accountable.
We’ll be standing in the name of #AndrewJosephIII to #EndQualifiedImmunity and demand justice for our people. #BlackLivesMatter

What Do You Mean, Fund The Police?

Other far-left figures are just as displeased with Biden.

Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) was perturbed that Biden had not once mentioned “saving black lives.” 

She again demanded “defund.”

With all due respect, Mr. President. You didn’t mention saving Black lives once in this speech.

All our country has done is given more funding to police. The result? 2021 set a record for fatal police shootings.

Defund the police. Invest in our communities.

— Cori Bush (@CoriBush) March 2, 2022

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson also chimed in saying that the police are funded enough: 

“fund the police” is not the answer.

they are already well funded & not accountable to anyone & their presence hasn’t led to community safety.

Far-left MSNBC favorite Elie Mystal decided he would just let it all hang out.

“We don’t need to defund the police, we need to fund them… with resources and training”

What freaking bollocks. But it’s what whites want to hear. #SOTU

Many supporters of BLM also took to social media to call out Joe Biden. 

Is Joe Biden gunna mention all the fake “black lives matter” campaign slogans he spit on?

Nope but the good news for him is that everyone in there is totally cool with that

And unfortunately for Democrats in a midterm election year that no one has predicted will be good for them, some folks may be catching on.

giving police more money is a great way to alienate the folks who registered Dem after the black lives matter protests.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

 As Democrats tried to quickly pivot the narrative in an election year, Republicans were quick to remind them of their massive hypocrisy.

Amazing. Every Democrat applauds funding the police after spending two years trying to defund them.

— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) March 2, 2022

Republicans also called out Democrats sudden change of heart for exactly what it is.

Democrats giving a standing ovation for funding the police?

Damn, you can really tell there’s an election coming.

— Marie Oakes (@TheMarieOakes) March 2, 2022

Some thought they might have spotted a pattern in Democrat thought.

Democrats were for defunding the police before they were for funding the police.

— Steve Moyer (@Steven_Moyer) March 2, 2022

But as we all watch Democrats applaud Joe Biden wanting to fund the police, let’s all keep in mind the last two years. Amazing what an upcoming election can do.

Democrats claim they don’t support Defunding the Police.

Here is 7 minutes of Democrats saying, “DEFUND THE POLICE!”
