(PoliticalLookout.com)- Remember how the Democrats lost their minds when a black woman who supports the police poured paint over the “BLACK LIVES MATTER” mural outside Trump Tower in New York City? Well now they seem to be absolutely fine with vandalism, after a giant “BACK THE BLUE” mural outside Tampa’s Police Department was vandalized with tar and red paint.
City officials confirmed the vandalism on Wednesday, and video footage shows the damage done to the mural that was painted only days previously. The Tampa Bay Times reported that the vandalism was focused primarily over the word “blue,” and at this point, it is uncertain who is responsible for the vandalism.
You can bet it wasn’t a Republican…
A spokesman for the city of Tampa told journalists that the vandalism took place overnight, but incredibly, there’s no evidence of who did it. How exactly did a criminal manage to vandalize a pro-police mural that was right outside a police station?
Just days earlier on Saturday night, 40 volunteers painted the mural in front of the police headquarters to show their support for officers at a time when the police are being demonized by far-left radicals in Antifa and Black Lives Matter. The police don’t even seem to have much support from the Democrats, with many Democrat-run cities already having voted to remove their police departments entirely – including Minneapolis.
Can you imagine telling yourself, ten years ago, that the far left would be so powerful in the United States in ten years that Democrat-run cities would literally be getting rid of their police departments?
Keith Campbell, the organizer behind the mural, told a local media outlet that they obtained verbal approval for the painting from the mayor’s office. However, the mayor’s office said that the approval was not yet complete and the organizers did not have full permission. They no doubt didn’t want to face the wrath of Black Lives Matter.
Mayor Jane Castor said that “any tribute to honor their service is welcome” but that it is “unfortunate they didn’t see the permitting process through so that our community could participate in showing their appreciate for the brave men and women that service our residents every day.”
