This all comes down to something very simple. Democrats have looked at their internal polls on crime and are panicking.
Last week, I noted that White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) tried to rewrite history on the defunding of police.
That was a test run for a full-blown attempt to flip the script and shift blame.
Over the weekend, even Chris Wallace of FOX News, who has let his Trump Derangement Syndrome turn him into an advocate for Democrats, tried this tactic:

The level of gaslighting is astonishing.
The "Akshully it's them who want to defund the police" is the most impressive gaslighting operation in the media since "Akshully we always took the lab leak theory serious."

Jen Psaki is trying to use the fact that Republicans voted against Biden’s ‘American Rescue Plan’ to make this claim because it has funding for law enforcement. That aspect of the plan was never part of the debate. This is a totally political sleight of hand.
Evie Fordham reports at FOX News:
Psaki casts GOP as party of ‘defund the police’ after slogan backfires on Democrats
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki accused Republicans of being the party of defunding the police on Monday — after “Defund the Police” became a rallying cry of progressive activists in 2020 and damaged Democrats’ appeal with moderate voters.
Republicans voted against President Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which was signed in March, even though it included $350 billion for state and local governments that could be used for local police…
“Well, the president did mention that the American Rescue Plan, the state and local funding, something that was supported by the president, a lot of Democrats who supported and voted for the bill, could help ensure local cops were kept on the beat in communities across the country. As you know, [it] didn’t receive a single Republican vote. That funding has been used to keep cops on the beat,” Psaki said.
Here’s the video:
Absolutely shameless. Under questioning from Fox's Peter Doocy, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki argues it's *Republicans* who have been defunding the police and not supporting law enforcement because they didn't vote for Biden's stimulus boondoggle the American Rescue Plan. pic.twitter.com/pIwfFkonu1

Democrats think no one remembers anything from the last year.

This all comes down to something straightforward. Democrats have looked at their internal polls on crime and are panicking. Violent crime, including murder, is way up. Democrats know this issue could cream them in 2022.
