Black Lives Matter extremists think they speak for all black Americans.
Any black American who disagrees with them becomes an enemy.
And that’s why Black Lives Matter is furious at this black Hollywood star after he made this bold statement.
Black Lives Matter doesn’t actually care about black Americans.
They care about money, and pushing radical left positions that harm black Americans.
Defunding the police is their biggest issue.
They believe that police are inherently racist, and therefore must lose their funding.
Of course, this would be disastrous for black Americans, considering they most benefit from police protection.
The most violent cities in the nation are largely black communities.
And many of those communities have defunded their police departments, at least removing chunks of funds.
Those cities, including Chicago, have seen a surge in violent crime in response, with 2020 being the most violent year in decades – especially in inner cities.
Despite this, the radical far-left continue to push for further police defunding efforts, with some pushing for outright police abolition.
Many Hollywood celebrities have come out in support of their efforts, which isn’t surprising considering they wouldn’t be affected as they can afford private security.
But one Hollywood star who isn’t on their side, and isn’t afraid to make that clear, is Morgan Freeman.
The Oscar-winning actor recently stated that he rejects the “defund the police” movement because police are necessary, with most officers doing a good job.
Speaking to Black Enterprise magazine, he stated that he is “not in the least bit” in favor of taking money from America’s police departments.
“I’m not in the least bit for defunding the police,” Freeman said. “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 the never pulled their guns except in rage, that sort of thing. I don’t know.”
Freeman has previously supported efforts to train police officers on community engagement.
After giving one million dollars to an effort to train police at that, he stated that “It’s time we are equipping police officers with training and ensuring law enforcement is not defined only as a gun and a stick. Policing should be about that phrase ‘To Serve’ found on most law enforcement vehicles.”
Morgan Freeman is right but that doesn’t mean the Left is going to give up their hatred for police.
