Yesterday, Biden did a campaign ad, oh excuse me, a “town hall” on MSNBC to answer “random” questions from “undecided” voters. They were, of course, anything but that, as all of those who got to participate were obviously partisans put there to tee up Biden’s talking points. One of those talking points involved police.
Biden’s answer was one of the dumbest, most dangerous things I’ve heard over the last four months of turmoil.
Honestly, what do liberals think psychologists and psychiatrists do? Do they think they operate like hypnotists, saying magic phrases that suddenly turn dangerous people into soft, gentle creatures? Is Biden thinking they’ll have a sit down with a guy with a knife to talk it through?
Look, I understand that left-wing policies often don’t make sense, but this one really, really makes no sense. Psychologists are not wizards, nor does their profession lend itself to on the spot, sudden transformations of people. Thinking through this further, is the idea that the psychologist would take the lead on when police can use force or not? Are they going to control the scene? Imagine a non-officer trying to direct an officer on what he can do as they are dealing with an armed suspect. Does that sound safe to anyone?
