Democrats and other leftists have given America the “defund police” movement, which irrationaly promotes the idea that if you cut funding for police there will be less crime.

It’s exactly the opposite that’s happened over and over again, mostly in Democrat-run cities where the “defund” agenda is more developed.

Now one gas station owner in Philadelphia says he’s had enough.

So he’s hired guards to patrol his property – and they are armed with AR-15 rifles.

Fox News reported gas station owner Neil Patel confirmed he is being forced to hire protection.

He said the move became necessary because his store has been ransacked repeatedly.

“We are tired of this nonsense: robbery, drug trafficking, hanging around, gangs,” he explained. “They are forcing us to hire the security, high-level security, state level.”

His decision came after a recent attack in which “young people” vandalized his business and stole an ATM.

Fox reported Chief Andre Boyer said, “We wear Kevlar, we are trained, my guards go to training every other week, they’re proficient with [their guns] and with their taser, they know the law.”

“Incidents” at the station, since the guards arrived, have stopped, Patel said.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
