There has been a lot of backlash over Quentin Tarantino’s recent anti-cop comments but why isn’t anyone criticizing him for marching and spewing hate with the Revolutionary Communist Party?
Actor Jamie Foxx supported communist, cop-hater Quentin Tarantino Sunday night from the podium of The Hollywood Film Awards. Tarantino called cops murderers four days after Officer Randolph Holder was murdered by a hardened criminal in New York City.
“Keep telling the truth and don’t worry about none of the haters,” Foxx said.
Tarantino joined a BlackLivesMatter-Revolutionary Communist Party rally to make his statements.
The filmmakers and stars applauded. Maybe that’s because a sign came on telling them to applaud. They’re sheeple.
Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is being boycotted by the National Association of Police Organizations and the 1,000 police units and associations it represents. They join the New York City, Philadelphia and LA police unions.
Richard Johnson, writing for the Post, wrote that Producer Harvey Weinstein is pressuring Tarantino to apologize:
Harvey Weinstein is said to be furious at Quentin Tarantino for going to an anti-police rally on Oct. 24 and calling cops “murderers.”[…]
Weinstein was said to be considering conciliatory moves, such as special screenings of “The Hateful Eight” for police officers and their families.
“Harvey is desperate to find a solution,” said my source. “He’s angry that Tarantino needlessly created a controversy that has nothing to do with the movie. It’s so pointless and unnecessary.” And bad for business.
But a source close to Weinstein told me, “They’ve been friends forever. He knows Quentin is passionate and will speak for himself.” But the backlash continues to grow.
Tarantino’s actor father Tony criticized his son’s police statements.
Harvey Weinstein is said to be furious at Quentin Tarantino for going to an anti-police rally on Oct. 24 and calling cops “murderers.”
“I love my son and have great respect for him as an artist but he is dead wrong in calling police officers, particularly in New York City where I grew up, murderers,” Tarantino said in the statement released Friday by the New York Police Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.
“He is a passionate man and that comes out in his art, but sometimes he lets his passion blind him to the facts and to reality,” the statement continued.
His cousin, a police officer who almost died after being wounded in the line of duty, also called him out for his comments.
There are reports that he will apologize shortly in an op-ed. We will post it here when it happens if ever. Who cares about his apology. He said it, he meant it.
I still want to know why no one seems to care that he was marching with the Revolutionary Communist Party. Is it not PC to criticize people who hope to one day violently overturn our government?
