House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) hit back at the Democrat Party Thursday evening with a new “The Democrat Party is the Party of Crime” video which comes as Democrats try to garner interest for their January 6 hearing.
“The Democrat Party is for lawlessness and the breakdown of society,” McCarthy said in a tweet. “While they defund the police, violent crime is skyrocketing in our communities. Enough is enough.”
The video shows numerous Democrats, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Cori Bush (D-MO), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), former NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, and others talking about either defunding law enforcement or demonizing them.
The video also features multiple clips from news programs highlighting violence in Democrat-run areas.
After highlighting the aforementioned content for several minutes, the video concludes by stating on the screen, “As Democrats in Washington abuse their power to attack their political opponents, they are ignoring America’s crime crisis.”
