U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released a statement challenging Senator Tina Smith for her provocative and inflammatory rhetoric that is helping to fuel the dangerous anti-law enforcement atmosphere.
“When Tina Smith isn’t cowering in her basement like Joe Biden, she is fueling the dangerous anti-law enforcement climate with her irresponsible rhetoric,” says the U.S. Senate hopeful. “From claiming the state of Minnesota is racist to saying there is something ‘dangerously wrong with the role police play in our society,’ Tina Smith has shown very clearly that she is willing to sacrifice public order in favor of mob rule.”
Recently, Tina Smith spoke on record saying that Jason Lewis’ “opposition to abolishing the police will ‘backfire.’”
“If anything is going to ‘backfire’” says Lewis, “it’s Tina Smith’s vision to ‘reimagine’ policing in America. If you are wondering what ‘reimagining’ means, you’re not alone. Nobody has been able to figure out what that means because she hasn’t explained it.”
Senator Smith has yet to take a concrete stance of offering practical alternatives to the police force.
Lewis believes that “public order is under assault” and that “Tina Smith can’t be bothered to offer any real solutions. Instead while hardly showing her face “she is running a copy-paste campaign, giving out the same generic statements on how we need to ‘reimagine policing’ while she lets radicals in the DFL like Ilhan Omar work to abolish the police.”
“This is unacceptable from our leaders. It was the abject failure of Minnesota Democrats that got us to this point in the first place, and Tina Smith is just continuing that trend.”
Lewis guarantees he “will protect public safety and law enforcement at all costs, Tina Smith won’t. You need only look at her track record.”
