Why do those on the far-left act like petulant children every time anyone does or says something that isn’t exactly what they wanted them to do or say? They throw tantrums when someone either challenges their delicate sensibilities or civilly suggests an alternative way to go about something. They’ll even go after one of their “Gods,” displaying that no one is safe from their poisonous animus.

The infamous, far-left “Squad” responded to comments by former president Barack Obama that surfaced a day before his interview with Snapchat political commentator Peter Hamby. Obama criticized what he called a “snappy slogan,” “Defund the police.”

“If you believe, as I do, that we should be able to reform the criminal justice system so that it’s not biased and treats everybody fairly, I guess you can use a snappy slogan like ‘defund the police,’” Obama said. “But you lost a big audience the minute you say it, which makes it a lot less likely that you’re actually going to get the changes you want done.”

The activists in “the Squad” tweeted their displeasure with what Obama told Hamby, because he criticized their messaging. Notice though that Obama never said that they shouldn’t lobby to defund the police, just that the wording was wrong. That didn’t prevent the tizzy “the Squad” responded with.

That’s right. The congressional activists actually pushed back against Obama, who had been complimentary of the one member of “the Squad” that hadn’t spoken up about his comments, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) — until Wednesday.

If the members of “the Squad” want police departments to be defunded so bad, then why don’t they begin with their districts as a trial and see how that works out for them?
