Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat, calls out anti-white racism by name. No elected Republican on the national stage has done this. That tells you everything you need to know about Republicans.

The vote came during a Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) meeting where police officers vented their frustrations, new and old, with the mayor and and the police department, Chicago FOP president John Catanzara told The Epoch Times.
Emotions were running high, Catanzara said, and one member grabbed the microphone to suggest a vote of no confidence. All members present at the meeting, about 150 active and retired police officers, voted for it.
His members’ newest frustration with the city leaders, according to Cantanzara, is the cancellation of a eight-decade-old Chicago tradition—the St. Jude Memorial March—for the second year in a row. The march is an annual May event honoring fallen Chicago police officers and Gold Star families who lost loved ones in the line of duty.
Brown said he canceled the march due to COVID-19 restrictions in an online video honoring the St. Jude tradition. “We must never forget their sacrifices and the families they left behind,” he said.
“It was a slap in the face to every department member, especially the Gold Star families, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and deserve that respect annually, period, no excuses,” Cantanzara said in a video update right after the meeting. His members managed to host a smaller-scale St. Jude march on their own.
