Democratic committee’s latest hire hides anti-cop posts: ‘If the cops kill me, burn every cop precinct to the ground’


WASHINGTON, DC- Defund the police…take guns away from law-abiding citizens…open the borders…this is what you get from the ruling class in Washington, DC.

The ruling class also likes to place radicals in key positions. The latest, appointed as the new chief technology officer (CTO) for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is an anti-police zealot.

In fact, according to the Daily Wire, Erica Joy Baker in fact said she hated the police, said they were the “modern slave patrol,” while also urging followers to burn down police precincts to the ground if she happened to be killed by an officer, she wrote in tweets the Daily Caller and Fox News reported.

The tweets, which have since been deleted but which were captured in web archive sites read:

“[I] wonder if this will kick off an investigation into how deeply white nationalists have infiltrated capitol police, which will spur similar investigations into other [police departments], which I sure hope it does.”  Baker tweeted Jan. 11 after the suspension of two Capitol Police officers.

How about another?

“I hate the police. The institution of policing, with its history of criminalizing and weaponizing blackness, is a farce. And I hate it,” she tweeted on September 20, 2016.

One more?

“F*ck this institution founded on the capture and killing of black bodies, this modern day slave patrol we call the police,” she tweeted on April 19, 2016.

And finally, a September 24, 2020 tweet, also since deleted that was first reported on by The Daily Caller:

“If the cops kill me, the only way to ‘sully’  my legacy is to *not* be out in the streets.

If the cops kill me, burn every cop precinct to the ground.

If the cops kill me, shut down the highways and throw the teargas back at em when they try you.

gtfo with that ‘sully’ shit.”

A wordsmith she’s not. 

In yet another tweet, since deleted from last June 11, Baker said of the police:

“My favorite take thus far: ‘we have an epidemic [in San Francisco]: giant pieces of shit walking around killing [San Francisco] residents. you can try to re-form a piece of shit, but what you’re left with is still a piece of shit. #DefundPolice”

She also called for defunding the police in a tweet on June 5, which was miraculously not yet deleted.


In announcing Baker’s new position, DCCC Chair Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) said in a Monday statement that Baker would be the organization’s first CTO.

“These new additions to the DCCC are seasoned operatives who know what it takes to win,” Maloney said.

“I am thrilled to welcome these talented operatives on board, and I look forward to our continued work as we assemble the team that will protect Democrats’ House majority in 2022.”

Baker, in speaking to her new job said in a statement: “I am honored and excited to join the DCCC and invest in extensible, reliable and secure tools and processes that raise the technical baseline across the board. It is my goal to help my peers and house members do their best work in order to maintain a strong Democratic majority in 2022, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Law Enforcement Today recently reported on another radical hired by the DCCC…an ex-gang member—Dyjuan Tatro, who actually shot a man and was described as the “triggerman” for Albany’s Original Gangsta Killers.

Tatro also expressed anti-law enforcement sentiments on social media, Breitbart News reported. He once referred to police as “white supremacists” while also defending looting as a “vital” form of social protest.

The DCCC, in hiring anti-police zealots seems to be ignoring some members of the Democrat caucus, who loudly complained after Democrats got humiliated in last November’s elections, barely holding on to the House and came within a few funky voting maladies in Georgia of also being once again in the minority in the Senate. The Senate is currently tied 50-50 with Kamala Harris the tiebreaking vote.

After the near throttling in November, numerous members of the Democrat’s caucus complained about the rhetoric coming from the party, especially anti-police sentiment that didn’t play well in the suburbs and flyover country.

“We have to commit to not saying the words ‘defund the police’ ever again,” Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) told colleagues in a conference call following the November election.

“No one should say ‘defund the police’ ever again. Nobody should be talking about socialism,” Spanberger continued.

She warned that Democrats will get “fucking torn apart” if they continue down that road. Apparently they have ignored her advice.

The following article contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

WASHINGTON, DC- Remember last summer, when House Democrats referred to police officers as storm troopers, Nazis, Gestapo, and insisted they were a bunch of killers whose intention when they began their shift was to hunt down black men and gun them down?

We do.

Democrats however have zero problem hiring former real life gang members for key positions in their party.

You know, people that actually killed other people. On purpose. For the fun of it. 

Want a little bit more recent history? How about hiring a real life gang member who in January referred to Capitol police officers as “white supremacists” after the Capitol incident on Jan. 6, and who condoned the looting after George Floyd died? 

The New York Post reports that House Democrats have hired such a person, an ex-gang banger for a top leadership position in the party.

The Post tells us that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which is headed by New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (who obviously gives Irish-Americans a bad name), appointed Dyjuan Tatro as a “senior adviser for diversity and inclusion.”

It isn’t known if the sub-title of his official position is also “senior adviser for shooting and slashing victims,” as he was accused of in 2002.

Tatro is apparently a media star as well, having been the focus of a taxpayer-funded program on PBS called “College Behind Bars,” which focused on a group of inmates who were earning their college degrees through an initiative of the New York state correctional system.

Through that program, Tatro earned his bachelor’s degree while serving a six-year sentence for racketeering. So that was his first and only offense, right? Not so much.

When he was convicted of that crime in 2011, he was already doing time for the shooting of two rival gang members in 2006. Perhaps he can double as the Democrats’ gun-control adviser, since he apparently has vast experience in that area.

Tatro was the so-called “triggerman” for a street gang that terrorized New York’s capital city of Albany, the Original Gangsta Killas. Tatro confessed to the shootings, as well as the slashing of another victim in 2002 and, oh yeah…he was also a drug dealer. Sounds like the perfect addition to the Democrat team. Maybe he can hook up Hunter Biden. 

Tatro said that he had made at least $12,000 a month dealing drugs, while conspiring to traffic over 50 grams of crack cocaine.

Remember in January when Democrats discovered a new-found “love” for police officers when it was a politically advantageous way to attack former President Donald Trump? Well apparently, Tatro didn’t get the message. 

Fox News is reporting that before joining the DCCC earlier this month, Tatro had a lot to say about the Capitol attack. 

In a Twitter post, Tatro said:

“The answer to white supremacists storming the Capitol is not to give more money to a different group of white supremacists who’s [sic] job it is to uphold white supremacy.” Sounds like a great guy and perfect fit for anti-cop Democrats.

Two earlier tweets were deleted, however Fox News had a screen grab wherein he complained about the Capitol Police budget.

In August, Tatro expressed support for violent looting and riots, characterizing them as “protests against systemic racism.” 

Tatro also suggested that reforming the police was akin to reviving Nazism:

“To all those people who want to reform the police because all cops aren’t bad, should we just go ahead and revive Nazism because all Nazis weren’t bad? I didn’t think so. Case closed,” he wrote on Twitter in June.  That tweet was since deleted…wonder why? 

The hiring of Tatro only reinforces the perception that Democrats are soft on crime, as if we didn’t know that after last summer, when they looked the other way as criminals were destroying American cities. This basically confirms what we already thought. Republicans agree.

“It’s certainly on-brand for criminal-coddling Democrats, but the rest of America will find it disturbing that a murderous gang member is holding a prominent position with the DCCC,” said New York State Republican Party Chairman Nick Langworthy.

“Second chances are one thing, but I would have to question Congressman Maloney’s judgment to put someone with such a violent past at the top of their organization.”

However, Maloney and the DCCC see no problem with hiring a former gang member who shot two people. They think it’s a “success” story.

“Dyjuan is a formerly incarcerated person who has worked hard to change the trajectory of his life through education and service to his community,” a DCCC spokesperson said.

“He has served his time for the crimes he committed and is now a national leader in the bipartisan movement to reform our criminal justice system and bring meaningful improvement to the education system in American prisons.

Such critical work breaks cycles of recidivism by making sure more people leave prison with the skills to hold down a hob and contribute to their communities.”

In fairness to Tatro, if a Democratic representative who had a sexual affair with a Chinese spy is still on the Nancy Pelosi-appointed House Intelligence Committee, we suppose a former gang member fits right in with the Democrats. He’s probably less of a threat than the aforementioned representative, Eric Swalwell of California.

Tatro has worked on Maloney’s congressional campaigns and issued the following statement upon being hired:

“This past election cycle has emphasized how electoral politics affects the daily lives of each and every American as well as the centrality of the African American vote to winning elections. I am honored to be joining the DCCC to work on a number of issues at the nexus of politics, diversity, and equity & inclusion.”

He added, “I want to thank Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney for his commitment to assembling talented & diverse DCCC teams.”
