Leftist have run amok in the entertainment industry.
They have been wallowing in Trump Derangement Syndrome going on five years.
But one Hollywood star called out the insane thing Democrats are doing.
Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 gave Democrats the impetus to go crazy.
Since then, the Democrats have pushed some of the most radical policies seen in mainstream politics in decades.
One of their zanier ideas is to defund the police, especially at a time when the murder rate is spiking across the country.
Several politicians, journalists, and celebrities have jumped on the idea, but some are speaking out against the insanity.
Long-time actor Morgan Freeman is one of the celebrities pushing back against the Democrats’ radical anti-police rhetoric.
In a recent interview, Freeman said:
“[I am] not in the least bit for defunding the police…Police work is, aside from all the negativity around it, it is very necessary for us to have them and most of them are guys that are doing their job…They’re going about their day-to-day jobs…There are some police that never pulled their guns except in rage, that sort of thing. I don’t know.”
The violent crime rate jumped 30% in 2020, and is on pace to increase again in 2021.
One of the causes is progressive district attorneys funded by George Soros are implementing soft-on-crime policies.
Even far-left New York City mayor Bill de Blasio acknowledged that he was shocked by the recidivism rate of criminals who had been let out early.
Freeman’s comments were made while doing press for an upcoming film project that focuses on a police shooting.
“The interview was centered on Freeman’s new film The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain, which is based on a real-life incident that occurred in 2011. Kenneth Chamberlain Sr., a former Marine with bipolar disorder, was killed by police after his medical alert necklace was accidentally triggered…Frankie Faison, who plays Chamberlain in the film, echoed Freeman’s thoughts.”
Faison echoed Freeman’s sentiments and said, “Well, I agree with Morgan…I’m certainly not in favor of defunding policemen.”
While Freeman has criticized Republicans in the past, he is not on board with the Left’s radical race agenda.
He has spoken out against it on more than one occasion.
Democrats refuse to acknowledge that their radical policies have consequences.
For example, dozens of Walgreens pharmacies have left San Francisco because of rampant shoplifting.
Criminals who take under $950 of merchandise will not be prosecuted, and security guards have been instructed not to intervene.
Even former California senator Barbara Boxer was mugged in broad daylight recently.
Some Democrat-run cities are becoming unlivable due to failed policies.
Defunding the police while pushing for gun control and letting criminals go is an insane combination of ideas, but somehow it makes sense to the Democrats.
