President Trump Backs the Blue and We Should, Too

  • By Starla Simms January 9, 2019


    "You (officers) keep America safe, and you maybe don't hear it enough or sometimes don't feel it enough. You do an incredible job. The people in this country know it and they love you. Just remember that, so true. On behalf of a grateful nation, I just want to say that we thank you. We salute you and we stand with you 100 percent." – President Trump



    Imagine waking up to the sound of someone attempting to break into your house, and you have no firearm. (I know, I know, you do, but imagine for argument’s sake.) What would be the first thing you’d do? For most law-abiding citizens, the answer is you’d call the police. Here in the United States we are very fortunate to be able to do that, because we have law enforcement officers we can depend on. This is not the case everywhere else.


    In many parts of Mexico everyone has bars on their windows, because protecting yourself is your own responsibility. There are no police to call, because often the crimes that are being committed are being committed by the police. When I lived in Mexico, I saw people pulled over by federal police on non-federal roads, which is a no-no. But when the police need money they’ve got to shake someone down. I also had Tijuana police show up in uniform at my front door asking for money on a regular basis, despite the fact that I did not live in Tijuana. It’s easy for the police to get away with crime in Mexico because they are allowed to own firearms, and average law-abiding citizens are not. This is what you can expect from law enforcement in places where law and order is not the rule.


    President Trump protects Americans by standing up for law and order, and he has done a tremendous job Backing the Blue. Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by giving our officers the respect they deserve.



    Trump’s accomplishments for our nation’s police officers

      • President Trump’s administration has adopted aggressive strategies for tackling drug- and gang-related violence, as well as working to reduce sex trafficking.


      • The President’s Department of Justice has reversed Obama-era activist policies that allowed so-called “prosecutorial activism,” including reigning in the out of control Civil Rights Division.


      • No more politically correct censorship that forbids officers from using plain English to call threats as they see them instead of wasting time worrying about PC word choices. Believe me, if they’re protecting you against a terroristic threat you aren’t going to want them to waste precious seconds remembering not to call it that.


      • The President visited Kansas City, Missouri, last week to speak at the Justice Department’s Project Safe Neighborhoods conference, which is aimed at partnering federal and local officials to work together to reduce violent crime.


      • President Trump is fighting for a border wall, which will protect police as well as everyday citizens.


    Despite hysteria from Democrats and activist groups, the deadly shootings of unarmed people we see twisted by the media are actually in decline, as they have been since 2015, long before Trump took office. Our law enforcement officers are not bad guys. They keep our communities and our citizens safe, so stop trying to paint them as villains. These are real American heroes who put their lives on the line for us every day, and they deserve to be honored as such.


    Democrat voters, I invite you to observe National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day by giving up crime and by taking a look at your own contributions to it instead of blaming your failings on the police that serve us. Even if you smear the police on social media, they will still show up when you call them. If that’s not good enough for you, consider moving to Mexico. You will quickly develop a newfound appreciation for all our law enforcement officials do for us here in the United States.
