Atrophied moviemaker Quentin Tarantino and his fellow anti-cop yobs are Inglourious Basterds for flipping the Finest the bird and branding them “murderers” at a Black Lives Matter rally in Manhattan, while grieving relatives of slain Officer Randolph Holder — an African American and the fourth city cop killed in the line of duty in 11 months — prepared to bury him.
The Reservoir Dogs stained their souls and annulled their cause for dissing the likes of Officer Holder, 33, who devoted his life to protecting people of all stripes. The hero cop who hailed from a family of law officers, was by all accounts widely respected and had made 135 arrests in an illustrious, five-year career, earning citations for excellent or meritorious police duty on six occasions. But the execrable rallyers dumped on Holder’s incredible accomplishments with a political bowel movement that Tarantino crowned with his verbal trots.
“When I see murders, I do not stand by — I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers,” he heaved to cheering protestors, igniting furious calls for a boycott of his movies.
Tarantino’s sellout is a double disaster for him. He has become the Hanoi Jane of cop bashers. He also finds himself unenviably plunked next to civil-rights, creepy-crawly Al Sharpton, who refused an invitation by Holder’s family to give the eulogy at his funeral, claiming the “sideshow” would detract from the burial.
The truth is far more unholy. How can the rancorous reverend, who has spun a lucrative career out of vilifying cops with standards lower than a limbo stick on its last leg, now hail a Finest without being struck down by lightning?
Wormy Quentin, Al, and other chronic antagonists and frustrated thumb-suckers with an axe to grind against everything and nothing need to squirm away because the war on cops is disastrously disproportionate to the sound law enforcement policies that make America the world’s most desired destination for immigrants, attracting 654,949 new citizens last year. They came here for a better life than the one they left behind in armpit nations, where cops are slaves of rogue regimes, and protestors are silenced forever through state-sanctioned murder.
