BERNIE KERIK SPEAKS AT THE #DriveFor45Oklahoma TRUMP TRUCK RALLY IN OKLAHOMA CITY
Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik was doing his part getting out the final vote for the Trump re-election campaign as he keynoted the massive #Drivefor45Oklahoma Trump truck rally in Oklahoma City — one of the largest of the #Drivefor45 teams in the country with nearly 15,000 followers.
New York City’s former top said he feels a kindred spirit with Oklahoma City, given that both cities were the sites of the most deadly terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. It also happens to be home to one of the “top 3” targeted Congressional races in CD-5 against Rep. Kendra Horn (D). (Horn was financially backed last election by another New York City official — former billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg.)
Kerik, who spoke from the bed of a tractor trailer truck, warned a standing-room-only crowd about the far-left’s infiltration into this state — the only state in the nation in which every single county went red for then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.
Since that time, the state’s third-largest city defunded the police here and State Question 805 on the ballot aims to give violent criminals early release and to eliminate enhanced sentencing for repeat offenders. If S.Q. 805 becomes law, judges, and juries won’t be permitted to know if it’s a criminal’s first time at the bench or their 20th. It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one that more than 90% of the measure’s funding comes from (you guessed it) outside the state of Oklahoma — namely, the ACLU chapter in New York City.
Next, the Commish rode the caravan down to the university town of Norman, Oklahoma where a radical mayor and city council were among the first in the nation — if not the first in the nation — to defund the police. Kerik underscored the difference that just 1% of crime increase and/or reduction can respectively make to a city. public safety, and it’s economy.
“For every one percent reduction in crime, New York City saw a parallel increase in economic activity,” said Kerik. “Crime reduction matters — it affects every walk of life, in every community, especially minority communities.”
Kerik, who oversaw America’s largest police force of 55,000 officers, spoke to officer morale for an in-person and drive-in crowd at the Unite Norman event. (Kerik shared that the Secret Service had shared with him that there was more Secret Service staff present at Joe Biden’s recent drive-in rally than there were supporters.)
All of this took place against the backdrop of a city that was closed for most of 2020 due to the mayor’s lockdowns and in which city council members, even after facing a recall threat, sat in a campaign tent which proudly flew an ANTIFA flag.
Kerik departed Oklahoma early Monday for Washington, D.C. where he will attend Election Night with President Trump at the White House, then travel with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s team to states facing post-election threats of rioting and civil unrest (we have withheld the names of the states so as not to disclose internal campaign strategy.)
