Hollywood Director Quentin Tarantino angered a lot of Americans when he called cops "murderers" at an anti-cop rally in New York City just a few days after NYPD officer Randolph Holder was gunned down while on duty. Police unions in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc. urged people to boycott his films and his own father chastised him for his hateful remarks.
Tarantino's behavior toward our brave officers was so incendiary that one congressman who doesn't usually speak out about Hollywood idiocy decided to jump into the debate. Rep. Tom Marino, a Republican from Pennsylvania who has worked alongside law enforcement for years, has had enough:
"I never wade into the waters of commenting on the ridiculous remarks often made by uber-liberal, out-of-touch Hollywood elitists, but enough is enough," Marino said. "I am tired of these know-it-alls bloviating about law enforcement when they have never spent a minute of their lives in a police officer’s shoes."
Marino couldn't help pointing out Tarantino's hypocrisy.
"For a man who has made millions promoting violence, nothing could be more hypocritical than to condemn law enforcement when it is they who deal with real-life violence and dangerous criminals," he said.
He urged the director to stay behind his camera and take a "vow of silence" on any issue outside of his Hollywood work.
On Monday, Tarantino's dad Tony announced he is releasing a film about the NYPD to highlight their courageous efforts.
