when you think hollywood idiots can get any stupider, they invariably push you aside and say 'hold my beer'

Quote:
Singers John Legend and Lizzo, and actresses Natalie Portman and Taraji P. Henson are among the Hollywood celebrities who’ve signed a letter pushing the defunding all police departments in the wake of the police involved death of Minneapolis man George Floyd.

The letter — which was also singed by Common, Jane Fonda, America Ferrera, Brie Larson, ACLU executive director Anthony Romero — goes on to insist that the money spent on police would be better spent on “building healthy communities,” or to go “to the health of our elders and children, to neighborhood infrastructure, to education, to childcare, to support a vibrant Black future.”
letter here.

wow, are they totally blind to see what's happening to their communities without police enforcement? i'd like to see who they're going to call when their homes are being invaded.

How are they going to fund anything when we no longer have to pay our taxes?

Will John Legend like it when anyone can have sex with his wife whenever they want?

It is pretty cool that we will be able to just help ourselves to their expensive cars, though.

Meanwhile the celebs got the money to hire private security, gated communities, etc.


Just like in Latin America they can live behind their walls with guards outside the door armed with machine guns.

Well this is very much in line with the core belief of liberal ideology, which is that liberals want
"to be able to do whatever they want at any time without consequence"

It's all groupthink that results in this idiocy; it's the latest cool cause to support and these useless celebs actually believe their opinions matter.

Laughable, really.


Celebs are all like--

"I have 3 mansions, $50 mill in the bank, and a ton of time on my hands.

Hmm, let me say some stupid sh*t: DEFUND the police!"


Embarrassingly predictable.

Says the people who have security, can afford security, and can afford to jet out of the US to another country and live just fine on a moments notice.

And those non-wealthy who support this nonsense, well, who you calling if someone comes up and robs you, or does a home invasion, or steals your property, or simple races up and down the street?
