The Democrats are now alienating normal people with their radical commie agenda

Famed civil rights attorney Leo Terrell has had it with the racist, communist Democratic Party.

He says the Democratic Party left him when they adopted this radical commie agenda.

So, he’s voting Republican for the first time in his life.

Mr. Terrell, who has fought against police brutality and litigates civil rights violations has come down hard on the “self-serving” Black Lives Matter movement as well.

He wrote a very good op-ed in Newsweek called “Why Black Lives Don’t Matter to Black Lives Matter”

I’ve spent over 20 years as a civil rights attorney in California and I’m known for not taking a back seat to anyone on police misconduct cases. Remember Dwayne Nelson? The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department hog-tied and suffocated him in a car. We won that case and put the rightful offenders in jail. Or Margaret Mitchell—the homeless woman who was shot and killed by the LAPD? We won that case too, and ultimately changed the national standard on how law enforcement handles mentally ill victims.

And yet, my commitment to justice and my substantial track record of putting racially driven criminals behind bars hasn’t lent itself to returning calls that I’ve made, in reaching out to longtime colleagues and friends who were behind me every step of the way when I was on “their side.” Furthermore, why am I only getting booked on “conservative” media outlets?

I’ll tell you why: It’s because I’m calling out the farce that is Black Lives Matter—and doing so loudly and proudly. Why? Because, this organization does not speak for me, as an African-American, and if you truly believe that Black lives DO matter, you should reconsider taking your cues from this group’s self-serving agenda.

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

Terrell recently appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” and also chatted with Daily Caller reporters to discuss his break from the radical Democrats and his support for President Donald Trump. You can watch the videos below:

This really isn’t shocking when you think about it: the Democrats have gone “all-in” on their radical, racist, communist agenda. It’s clear that they want to avoid the Hillary mistake of 2016, where she alienated the radical “Bernie Bros.”

This time around, Dementia Joe —whether he realizes it or not— is embracing and adopting the insane radical Left agenda from Bernie and former bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

This might play out well for the fringe kooks, but as you can see, it doesn’t work with normal, law-abiding American citizens…and there’s way more of them.

But Joe doesn’t have a fighting chance without the “radicals,” so he’s damned if does and damned if he doesn’t.
