(ThePatriotSource.com)- A Pennsylvania sheriff just joined the long list of public and elected officials who have switched from the Democrats to the Republicans following the far-left Antifa and BLM riots. Westmoreland County Sheriff James Albert said this week that he wasn’t just switching his support from Joe Biden to President Donald Trump, but his entire party registration.
The sheriff cited the months of riots and the fact that the Democrats don’t seem to be taking it seriously.
“It was a really difficult decision and I’ve thought long and hard about it, but I feel I stand for the ideals of the Republican Party platform more than the Democrats today,” he said. “I’ve been a lifelong Democrat, but a conservative Democrat at that. I’m pro-life, a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, a lifetime member of the NRA, and, today, I feel my ideals are closer to the Republican Party than Democrats.”
The sheriff’s announcement comes just a month after six Democrat mayors in Minnesota switched their allegiance from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to President Donald Trump.
The 77-year-old sheriff worked for over 40 years as a judge and in law enforcement, and according to a report from TribLIVE.com, his decision came after he watched news coverage of “arson, mob rule and attacks against law enforcement.”
He also referenced the tragic murder of 77-year-old Black American David Dorn, a retired police captain who was murdered by looters and rioters after trying to defend his friend’s pawn shop in St. Louis.
“These outrageous, lawless acts have been met with silence, acquiescence and, in some instances, outright support from the local, state, and national leadership of the Democratic Party.”
Lancaster, Pennsylvania saw a fresh outbreak of riots this week after far-left activists took to the street to demand “justice” for a man who chased a police officer with a knife before being shot. The riots were so bad that a judge held those arrested on $1 million bail to discourage people from doing it again.
Is it any wonder people are switching from the Democrats to Republicans when the Democrats refuse to condemn Black Lives Matter and Antifa?
