The Biden administration has kept a safe distance from the “defund the police” movement to the public eye, but behind closed doors President Biden has maintained relationships with some of the driving forces backing the “defund the police” movement.
White House visitor logs were reviewed by a Fox News Digital show revealing that anti-police activists have had direct communication with the White House and the Biden administration.
Fox News reported on the findings:
Rashad Robinson, president of left-wing racial justice group Color of Change, visited the White House last summer for what appeared to be a meeting with Cedric Richmond, a top Biden adviser who recently departed as the director of public engagement.
Color of Change has been among the most active groups advocating to defund the police. In 2021, they were at the forefront of the unsuccessful push to “dismantle” and replace the Minneapolis Police Department, an effort that was fueled by $500,000 from George Soros’ Open Society Policy Center.
“We know that policing doesn’t keep us safe, communities do,” reads a Color of Change petition calling on supporters to demand their local officials start the defunding process. “Policing doesn’t lead to thriving communities, investment does.”
“We must begin to envision the society that functions for ALL of us and we must begin by divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people,” the petition says.
Robinson has also celebrated the birthday of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur by calling for progressive groups to get “bolder” and “louder” in their demands for police abolition and their “plans for revolution.”
Along with Robinson, the President and CEO of the Marguerite Casey Foundation Carmen Rojas who is a vocal supporter of the defund the police movement visited the White House in December of 2021.
These left-wing activists are extreme supporters of the “defund the police” movement, and their meetings with White House staff raises questions about the position the Biden administration has on defunding the police.
