This is obviously not universal, but plenty of Democrat politicians despise police officers.
Democratic lawmakers plan to rehang a controversial painting on Capitol Hill that angered law enforcement groups with its depiction of police officers as pigs, after Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter personally took down the picture last week.
A Monday press release from the Congressional Black Caucus and Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., whose office for months had sponsored the display of the student artwork, announced that Clay and CBC members will “rehang” the piece Tuesday morning in the Cannon Tunnel.
The acrylic painting depicts a police officer as a pig in uniform aiming a gun at African-American protesters. Two birds — one black, one white — fight, and beside them, an African-American protester holding a scale of justice is crucified.
Make no mistake, organizations like the Congressional Black Caucus and straight-up racist, and they see police officers as their enemies.
Thank goodness there are politicians like Duncan Hunter in Washington.
