There’s a kind of club in Congress that calls themselves the Squad. What they are is a posse of shrill leftist women who love to shriek about their extremist left-wing views, grandstand, and whine about anything conservatives do.
They’re all Democrats and they’re all socialists. They love to complain, cause drama, and do their best to torch our Constitution. The Squad’s membership is made up of Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), Ayanna Pressley, Cori Bush, and Ilhan Omar.
One of the Squad’s top causes is guns and policing; they love to talk about defunding the police and gun control. However, taking a quick peek at their actions shows just how hollow their words truly are.
The Squad’s Gun Hypocrisy
The Squad wants to take guns away from law-abiding Americans and pull police out of their neighborhoods. They want to replace the guns with gender pronouns (or something) and replace the police with social workers. The result is a lot of dead people and cities burning down like we saw last summer during the Antifa riots.
However, when you take a peek at how the Squad treats themselves, you get a little bit of a shock if you’re a leftist or buy into their bullcrap rhetoric. The truth is that these arrogant shrews have been shoveling out money for armed bodyguards to protect them everywhere they go.
In fact, altogether, the Squad is spending proportionally much more than anyone else in our federal government for their private security. So…how does this work? Guns to protect them, but not to protect us? Sounds like communism to me!
Do you have armed bodyguards? If your answer is yes, then let the rest of USA citizens to keep their guns for protection! Period!

Taking a Look at the Numbers
Numbers don’t lie, and the numbers on the Squad’s security expenses are sky-high. Take a look at Cori Bush, for example. Bush shelled out 50% of her entire campaign budget on security just between mid-April and the end of June this year, amounting to over $70,000.
That’s some serious change: in fact, it’s more than most residents in her district earn in an entire year. However, Bush is fine with paying it out so armed guards can make sure she’s safe. Let me be absolutely clear: she has that right to be protected and to use armed force to protect her person.
We all do. The difference is that most of us can’t afford to shell out thousands of dollars a day for it. This is why we have the right to get a license and buy weapons to exercise our constitutional rights.
AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley also shelled out big bucks for men with guns to protect them. Should they play by the rules they want to impose on the rest of us and walk around with no armed protection? Why not? If that’s what they really believe…
OF COURSE…AOC & OMAR HAVE ARMED BODYGUARDS! WHAT HYPOCRITES! “AOC says proposed $1B budget cut to NYPD isn't enough: 'Defunding police means defunding police’
Some Democrats argue the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and represents police reforms!” pic.twitter.com/14Rym7f8kA

Defund the Police?
These Squad members also love to talk about defunding the police. Yet, police keep our communities safe and so do guns. However, for the sake of fairness, let’s make a deal.
We’ll start taking their arguments about gun control and police defunding seriously the moment these Squad members stop having armed bodyguards and stop relying on the police to keep them safe.
