Quentin Tarantino

Look, I”€™m not one of those right-wingers who mouth the words “€œOur cops are tops!”€ the way zombies mumble, “€œBrains!!!”€ I’m from Toronto, after all.

But in this case, they”€™re right:

Tarantino going to an anticop rally and calling police “€œmurderers”€ was stupid. If he’s so concerned about blacks being shot to death, he obviously needs to take that up with other, decidedly civilian and genuinely murderous blacks blah blah blah sooooo slleeepppyyy zzzzzzzzz…

But, of course, Tarantino is merely virtue signaling. His pathological desire to be adored and respected by black people has always been as obvious to me as, well, a swastika carved on a forehead.

His own dad says he’s being a goof.

And the cops are fortunate, because they can do more than just call for a boycott of Tarantino’s latest movie, which their sympathizers probably weren”€™t going to see anyhow.

They”€™re also calling on their brethren to decline security and traffic details on Tarantino’s movie shoots, to refuse technical-adviser gigs, and the like.

Unlike so many flaccid boycotters, the cops wield the kind of real power that might just make Tarantino’s life ever-so-slightly miserable, if only briefly.

Meanwhile, I”€™m stuck having to hope that one day I”€™ll be vindicated, and everyone else will come to agree with me that Quentin Tarantino’s only two truly noteworthy accomplishments were his screenplay for True Romance and his speech praising Jackie Chan at the 1995 MTV Movie Awards.

Assuming I live that long and don”€™t get shot by somebody first, either criminal or cop.
