One of the most concerning elements of the leftist agenda is the fear and distrust of law enforcement that their narrative breeds. Rather than teaching minority communities and Americans at-large that police officers are there to protect them, leftist leaders have gone out of their way to promote the idea that police officers are the enemy. Now, this harmful narrative is already having real-world effects.
Recently, six Arizona police officers were asked by a Starbucks barista to leave the establishment after being told that they were making customers uncomfortable. Not wanting to start an unnecessary altercation, the officers left without protest. In the wake of this incident, though, the Tempe Officers Association released a statement saying that Starbucks’ treatment of public safety workers “could not be more disheartening.”
Anti-police sentiment among the left in the United States has spiraled out of control. Rather than promoting the safety of minority communities, this anti-police sentiment has only made the situation more dangerous for minorities and police officers alike. Now, the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect US citizens aren’t even able to enjoy a cup of coffee without the fear of being harassed.
