In a rare endorsement, the Police Benevolent Association of New York City, a union representing 24,000 of NYC’s 36,000 police, has endorsed President Donald Trump for reelection. From Ivan Pentchoukov in the Epoch Times:
“I have 36 years in this job, 21 as a president of this fine organization. I cannot remember when we’ve ever endorsed for the office of president of the United States until now. That’s how important this is,” said Patrick Lynch, the president of the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York (PBA).
“Mr. President, we are fighting for our lives out there. We don’t want this to spread to the rest of this country,” Lynch added. “Now, many times people say that a union like ours, law enforcement group, gives endorsements. Not in the New York City PBA, sir. In the New York City PBA, Mr. President, you earn the endorsement and you’ve earned this endorsement. I’m proud to give it.”
These police have been shat upon by their mayor, their city council, and for more than 70 days the Insurrection, all of whom thought to achieve political advantage at the expense of the thin blue wall. I regularly hear John Batchelor speak with awe and reverence of the New York City police, their professionalism and their grit, as a newscaster who has long worked in Manhattan. Now they have spoken on the issue of the day, another great example of Americans that have seen the corruption and disorder and are ready to just say no.
Thank you, PBA.Published in
