I honestly do not expect any of these people to say “defund the police” at this moment. I cannot however imagine how they expect to shutdown those calls. You do not lead and than expect to have any sway with those who do?
There is a difference between making a judgement of what is politically risky, it’s a whole other thing to expect to shut down activists whose job it is to make you take bigger political risk. And your failure to have done anything To have stemmed this pain makes you harmful here
You will turn activists away from voting. In the most consequential election of our lives. By reminding people how little you have done. While using your power to slow momentum instead of holding it and the limitations of what you can do.
