Democrats spent the past few years waging a war on police officers all across the country.
This did not sit well with the American people.
And now one video from Charlie Crist’s past just resurfaced that reveals a devastating truth Democrats are desperate to hide.
With only six weeks left until the November Midterm elections, Democrat Charlie Crist is facing an uphill battle to unseat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis is leading Crist by seven points in the polls and crushing him in fundraising.
Overall, DeSantis brought in a record-breaking $218 million, which is 12 times more than Democrat Charlie Crist raised.
But a video from Charlie Crist’s past just resurfaced that could be the final nail in the coffin for his campaign.
In 2021, Nation of Islam Brother John Muhammad interviewed Charlie Crist on video.
During the interview, Muhammad asked Crist about the “reallocation of resources” from law enforcement officers into “programs that support other methods of public safety.”
As an example, Muhammad mentioned a program where mental health and social workers respond to dispatch calls instead of police officers.
“I support exactly what the chief is doing,” Crist said, clearly expressing his support for taking funds away from police. “It isn’t defunding, you’re correct about that,” Crist continued, before adding that “it’s reallocation and making sure there’s a balance to the approach.”
Of course, Charlie Crist knows that by “reallocation of resources,” Democrats mean “defunding the police.”
Crist’s support for defunding the police is the main reason why Palm Beach County Democrat Commissioner and former police officer Dave Kerner recently endorsed Ron DeSantis for Governor.
“The Governor’s Democratic opponent has already started talking about reallocation, which to me, by the way, is a code word for taking resources away from the men and women that protect us,” Kerner said. “It’s a code word for defunding the police.”
“Florida cannot afford people like Charlie Crist who wants to defund the police and make our communities less safe,” he added.
Charlie Crist knows that defunding the police is wildly unpopular with voters in Florida and across the country.
In the 2020 election, Democrats paid a steep price for supporting defunding the police, with Republicans picking up 15 seats in the House of Representatives.
Crime is surging and homicides are skyrocketing in Democrat-controlled cities.
Polls show crime is now one of the top issues for voters in November.
And Florida voters will not be happy to hear Charlie Crist discussing defunding the police with a radical Nation of Islam member.
