Jul 21, 2020 - 10:03 AM
MAYORS AND CITIES – Police officers have found an ally in PragerU as it launched the “Back the Blue” campaign from July 20 to 24.
In a press statement, PragerU or Prager University, said the campaign wants to disseminate the gratitude and appreciation for the law enforcement.
This came after the attack on American policing that stemmed from the death of George Floyd in May.
Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a $20 counterfeit bill
“Our brave police men and women are under attack by the mainstream media and radical Leftist groups who want people to believe that most law enforcement officers are racist. But they aren’t all bad cops. They put their lives on the line for us every day, and they need to know that we value them,” Marissa Streit, CEO of PragerU, said.
The campaign took over Twitter on Monday from 1:00 to 3:00 P.M.. It will again storm the same social media platform on Wednesday, also from 1:00 to 3:00 P.M..
PragerU said those who will participate can use hashtags #BackTheBlue #DefendThePolice @PragerU; post testimonial videos; share PragerU videos and posts in support of the police; and can donate online.
The Georgetown University and the University of Minnesota, meanwhile, stand on the other side of the fence.
These universities want to cut ties with the police and stand with the Black community.
