Black Ex-Cop Debunks Liberals Hateful Narrative
Liberals like to believe that minorities are exclusively their supporters, and many minorities buy their B.S. But more and more minorities are seeing the light and realizing that Dems are not looking out for them. Ex-Polic Officer Brandon Tatum is lib turned conservative. Obama made him see the error in his ways when he trashed the police repeatedly. Tatum explained his conversion to becoming a conservative and debunked liberals anti-police narrative during an appearance on “The Daily Signal Podcast” with host Rachel del Guidice.
"...Were you always a conservative, was that something that you gradually learned about? How did you get to where you are when it comes to what you believe, in terms of conservatism?" del Guidice asked.
Tatum: Well, I started out like most young, black men in the country where default is being liberal. Default is being a Democrat. All of the Democrat positions that you see most African American men believing today is what I believed before, even though I wasn’t politically involved as much as I am today. But over time I began to wake up and be more involved, and I woke up to what the reality was.
A lot of that happened when I was in college. I started to see that the country isn’t as racist as I thought it was. I’m in a majority-white university, and I was seeing things that [were] perpetuated to me as a young man that were just becoming unraveled. I got saved in 2008, I found Christ. That really helped me, as well, start to look at people not by their race per se, but by the fact that we’re all God’s children, and I judge you based on your character. The Martin Luther King mantra is something that I internalized more when I got saved.
Then when I became a police officer, I was still a liberal. I voted for Barack Obama. Thank you, Barack Obama, because Barack Obama is what really made me leave the Democrat plantation, what I call the plantation.
I paid taxes for the first time, significant amount of taxes when I was a cop. I said, “I need to be more politically involved, because I don’t like these taxes. What is happening here? I thought I was going to get an apartment, a car, and with these taxes I ain’t going to be able to buy nothing.” It made me feel like I need to know what’s going on.
Then Barack Obama started talking real bad about police, and that really turned me off. I opened my eyes in understanding to the other side. I was totally inspired by Ben Carson and Donald Trump. Donald Trump emerged. I loved the fact that he was keeping it real and being himself, authentic. Wasn’t a politician, big money man. I like him. That pushed me more to realizing that I’m more on the conservative side than I would ever be on the liberal side."
Tatum later debunked the idea that police are racist.
"Also, the majority of the people who are anti-police, they’re completely wrong. When you talk about policing being a racist institution, that is the biggest lie that I’ve heard in a very long time. Police officers and policing in America is probably the least racist institution in America. “Why do you say that, Mr. Tatum?” What person can be a racist and put your life on the line for the people that you hate, that you’re racist against? It’s almost an impossibility."
He is absolutely right, and he would know since he was a police officer, unlike all of the hateful Libs who think they know better. A person who works as a police officer has to want to serve the community. It's a job where your life is on the line just to help your neighbors, and there is not a lot of pay. But Libs would have you believe they are the KKK in blue.
