Democrat ‘Defund The Police’ Extremist Carjacked At Gunpoint

It must have been a frightening experience for Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) Monday night in the nation’s capital. The leftist lawmaker was reportedly carjacked by three armed suspects who held a gun to his head in the attack.

According to Cuellar’s office, the lawmaker was confronted outside of his apartment building in Washington, D.C. He escaped the incident unharmed.

This marked the second time a Democratic member of Congress became a violent crime victim in the capital this year. In February, Rep. Angie Craig (D-MN) was able to fight off an attack in the elevator of her apartment building.

Cuellar’s building is thought to be an unlikely target for criminal violence because of the heavy Capitol Police presence. Several lawmakers make their homes during sessions there.

Ironically, the Texas Democrat is strongly linked to the utterly failed “Defund the Police” movement. While he has tried to distance himself from the radical fringe, his actions tell a different story.

Cuellar drew the wrath of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in 2021 when he steadfastly refused to condemn the Defund the Police movement.

The Democrat voted against an amendment that would strip language from a spending bill making it easier to defund police departments.

NRCC spokeswoman Torunn Sinclair noted that with rising crime, “Texans won’t forget that Henry Cuellar voted to make it easier to defund the police departments that keep them safe.”

The representative further threw his support behind the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021. This was roundly criticized for stripping tools from law enforcement to keep communities safe.

The act prohibited sending surplus military equipment to local law enforcement as well as no-knock warrants in federal drug cases. And it hardly stopped there.

The Cuellar-endorsed bill eliminated law enforcement officer’s defense of being forced to make a split-second decision when accused of violating a suspect’s rights. This swung the door wide open for frivolous lawsuits.

The act further supported racial profiling. It mandated that officers take into account “protected characteristics, such as race or gender,” when engaged with an individual. Exactly how is this considered by anyone to be good police work?

Did Rep. Cuellar consider this when he was violently carjacked by three armed suspects?
