Deadspin Argues Non-SJW Tiger Woods ‘Hates’ to Be Black

The progressive media attack on African American athletes who refuse to be Kaepernick-ized is definitely on! Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods are commonly in the line of fire by sports media who insist athletes should make politics as normal as their training regimens. By refusing to call America a racist police state, Woods, at least, is no better than the KKK, writes the unhinged Carron J. Phillips, of Deadspin (above right).

The recent ESPN documentary series on Jordan subjected him to a long list of attacks for avoiding the SJW limelight. Nancy Armour’s USA Today hit piece typifies how he’s been maligned: “This is how LeBron rises above Michael Jordan.” LeBron James is a social justice warrior to the core, and Jordan is not. No secret who’s more loved by the progressive media.

Woods, who once referred to himself as “Cablinasian” to describe his Caucasian, Black, Indian and Asian ancestry, made some thoughtful comments about the late George Floyd, the police and race relations, but Phillips buries him in a Deadspin hit piece because Tiger isn’t angry, bitter and spewing hatred toward whitey. Here’s what Woods said:

“My heart goes out to George Floyd, his loved ones and all of us who are hurting right now. I have always had the utmost respect for our law enforcement.

“They train so diligently to understand how, when and where to use force. This shocking tragedy clearly crossed that line…”

From Phillips’ jaded viewpoint, those words could just as well have come from the late Senator Robert Byrd (Dem-W.V.) or any other klansman, current or former. He viciously lashed out at Woods, writing:

“The symbol above his words resembles three Ku Klux Klan hoods.

“It’s a coincidence, but you can’t unsee it.

“In the midst of one of America’s most pivotal moments, Tigers Woods decided that he too would join in with the rest of the sports world by releasing a useless and contradictory statement in an attempt to speak to this historic racial, cultural, and political moment.”

Tiger Woods has forgotten that when he was arrested on a DUI charged a few years ago, his race was listed as “Black”, “a title he’s always run from,” Phillips snarls.

Woods refuses to speak words of bitterness or to tick off a litany of police abuses ranging back to Rodney King 29 years ago. Phillips was quite able to do that without any help from the Tiger, who apparently doesn’t realize that the current racial unrest is about more than Floyd.

Phillips writes, “It’s also about Ahmaud Aubrey, and all the Amy Coopers of the world that have ever called the police on a Christian Cooper. It’s about decades of police brutality, and law enforcement officers getting a slap on the wrist for killing Black people at will. It’s about Breonna Taylor, David McAtee, and every other Black person that’s ever been a hashtag.”

A 2019 report by The Washington Post noted there had been 4,400 fatal police shootings since the Michael Brown incident in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. “The report also discovered that Black people are disproportionately killed by police, more likely to be killed while unarmed, and that police kill an average of three people per day,” Phillips says.

“These are facts that the 44-year-old Woods willfully chooses to ignore … .”

Not only is Woods not a card-carrying social justice warrior, he’s also a friend of … dare we say it … Donald Trump, every SJW’s most hated nightmare of a president. “Hours before Woods released his statement, the world watched as his buddy, Donald Trump, gave a press conference declaring himself our ‘president of law and order,’ as he vowed to invoke the Insurrection Act, an 1807 law that would allow him to deploy the military to enforce order to cities and states if riots and looting continue,” Phillips goes on.

Phillips’ blistering of Tiger Woods comes to an end when he writes that the golfing legend’s statement shouldn’t surprise anyone “because this is who he is, and this is what he thinks of us.

“And when I say us, I mean Black people.

“A race of people that he hates being a part of.”

There you have it. Tiger Woods needs to be reigned in and herded back to the progressive SJW plantation. The media says so.

Spurs Coach Popovich Tears ‘Deranged Idiot’ Trump Apart in Call to The Nation Mag

Volatile San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich unleashed a torrent of hatred for President Donald Trump during a Sunday night phone call to Dave Zirin, sports editor and resident communist for The Nation magazine. The Washington Post, Yahoo! Sports and Boston Globe, among others, jumped all over this golden opportunity to join in the roasting of the president.

According to Popovich’s rant, the president is a deranged idiot who has no brain and is unable to unify the people during this time of civil unrest:

“It’s unbelievable. If Trump had a brain, even if it was 99 percent cynical, he would come out and say something to unify people. But he doesn’t care about bringing people together. Even now. That’s how deranged he is. It’s all about him. It’s all about what benefits him personally. It’s never about the greater good. And that’s all he’s ever been.”

It’s clear to Popovich what needs to be done. The president should say, “Black lives matter.” He can’t and won’t do that because he wants to mollify “a small group of followers who validate his insanity.”

President Trump is not a leader and he can’t do anything to put America on a positive path, says the man known as “Pop” — a former NBA champion whose leadership took the Spurs to a dreadful 27-36 record when the season stopped in March. Pop is a man who says he can direct us to that positive path because he is a leader. How would he unify us? We don’t know because instead of offering any substantive leadership, he’s obsessed with tearing the president to shreds:

“He’s not just divisive. He’s a destroyer. To be in his presence makes you die. He will eat you alive for his own purposes. I’m appalled that we have a leader who can’t say, ‘Black lives matter.’ That’s why he hides in the White House basement. He is a coward. He creates a situation and runs away like a grade-schooler. Actually, I think it’s best to ignore him. There is nothing he can do to make this better because of who he is: a deranged idiot.”

Pop doesn’t ignore Trump and isn’t following his own advice. He demands more leadership so the “mass demonstrations can’t be used by people for other means. We can limit the bad, but only if things are organized better.”

Popovich also unloaded criticism on white people and three U.S. senators, all of them Republicans:

“The thing that strikes me is that we all see this police violence and racism, and we’ve seen it all before, but nothing changes. That’s why these protests have been so explosive. But without leadership and an understanding of what the problem is, there will never be change. And white Americans have avoided reckoning with this problem forever, because it’s been our privilege to be able to avoid it. That also has to change.”

Popovich enjoins Senators Lindsay Graham, Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell to his attack on the president. Graham and Cruz previously called Trump “unfit,” but now they choose to be “invisible” in the “face of this carnage:”

“In the end, what we have is a fool in place of a president, while the person who really runs the country, Senator Mitch McConnell, destroys the United States for generations to come. McConnell has destroyed and degraded our judicial system. He has tried to destroy health care. He’s destroyed the environment. He’s the master, and Trump’s the stooge, and what’s funny is that Trump doesn’t even know it. Trump’s always wanted to be part of the in-group, but McConnell is an in-group of one, and Trump plays the fool.”

Popovich has been attacking the president ever since he took office in 2017 and previously called him a “soulless coward.”

Antifa-Backing Cuomo Declares Protests Are Not Required to Be Peaceful

As NewsBusters has extensively documented, CNN host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo has an affinity for the left-wing terrorist group Antifa; claiming they had a “good cause” and “morality” on their side. So, it came as no surprise when, on Tuesday’s Cuomo PrimeTime, he emphatically argued that protests were under no obligation to be peaceful.

Cuomo kicked off his show by decrying the strict curfews cities around the country were putting in place to stop rioters and looters, and painted them as purely a way to crack down on the actual peaceful protesters. “It is a sad day when we need curfews in our cities. America’s major cities are filled with people demanding this country become more fair, more just and ironically, more united,” he whined.

Even though most people wanted justice for George Floyd, Cuomo pretended like that wasn’t true. “Now, too many see the protests as the problem. No, the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets, persistent, and poisonous, inequities, and injustice.”

Flashing his violent tendencies, Cuomo demanded: “And please, show me where it says that protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because, I can show you outraged citizens are the ones who have made America what she is and led to any major milestones.”

Well, besides the fact that there are laws against being violent, it’s right in the First Amendment:

 

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Cuomo often reminds viewers that he was once a practicing lawyer. Perhaps we’ve learned why that’s no longer the case.

Despite his ignorance of the Constitution and law, he argued that it was the right of others to make you feel uncomfortable. “Be honest, this is not a tranquil time. They’re not here to make power or you or me comfortable? They’re here to yell, criticize, blame and shame. You don’t have to like it,” he proclaimed.

Citizens have no duty to check their outrage,” he added. Ironic since he often fails to check his rage, like when he threatened to throw a Trump supporter down a flight of stairs.

“Looting, arson, violence. Now, that’s something else. Don’t confuse that with protests or the people doing it with protesters,” he went on to lecture. “There are bad people mixed in with good people in these situations. That’s the truth. We’re learning it in every city.”

It was true that bad actors were exploiting the protests, but Cuomo was (once again) being a massive hypocrite. He didn’t want people conflating protesters with rioters, yet he was asserting that people were angry at protesters when they actually angry at rioters and other violent actors.

“So far today, protests have been what they are the overwhelming majority of the time everywhere, peaceful, if you want to call it that. They’re certainly not violent,” he chided anyway.

The transcript is below, click “expand” to read:

CNN’s Cuomo Primetime
June 2, 2020
9:00:21 p.m. Eastern

CHRIS CUOMO: It is a sad day when we need curfews in our cities. America’s major cities are filled with people demanding this country become more fair, more just and ironically, more united.

Now, too many see the protests as the problem. No, the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets, persistent, and poisonous, inequities and injustice. And please, show me where it says that protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because, I can show you outraged citizens are the ones who have made America what she is and led to any major milestones.

Be honest, this is not a tranquil time. They’re not here to make power or you or me comfortable? They’re here to yell, criticize, blame and shame. You don’t have to like it. But why not focus on remembering the reason for the pain that fuels their purpose?

Police are the ones who are required to be peaceful, to de-escalate, to remain calm. They are, in fact, trained to do exactly that. So, when one kneels on someone’s neck for a long time and other police don’t stop obvious deadliness, that’s the problem.

We can’t be in a place where cops can act human and be forgiven but citizens can have the same flawed responses and be justifiably killed, or told to hold their tongues. Citizens have no duty to check their outrage or ignore a curfew to keep doing that. They may get arrested because it’s illegal. That’s their right as well.

Looting, arson, violence. Now, that’s something else. Don’t confuse that with protests or the people doing it with protesters. There are bad people mixed in with good people in these situations. That’s the truth. We’re learning it in every city. And we’re watching New York City tonight especially closely, where orders went into effect an hour ago to stay off the streets after one of the wildest most destructive nights in recent memory.

This is the strictest curfew in the big apple since the race riots of 1943. It’s three hours earlier than last night, after the city descended into absolute chaos. There was looting and lawlessness city-wide. Cops could not get a handle on it.

So far today, protests have been what they are the overwhelming majority of the time everywhere, peaceful, if you want to call it that. They’re certainly not violent.

But just in New York, and many big cities across America, you have to see this, too, there has been major unrest. What’s going to happen tonight?

Nets Tout Biden’s ‘Stark Contrast’ With Trump, ‘Promise’ to End Racism

Completely ignoring his recent racist comment declaring “you ain’t black” if you’re African American and vote for President Trump, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) praised former Vice President Joe Biden for providing a “stark” and “sharp” contrast to the President on the matter of George Floyd’s death.

“After staying close to home for months during the pandemic, today Joe Biden went to Philadelphia to address the anger over the deaths of George Floyd, and to blast President Trump for, in Biden’s words, turning the country into a battlefield,” announced CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell on Tuesday.

CBS political correspondent Ed O’Keefe touted how Biden had “invoked the final words of George Floyd” while giving a speech. He then played a soundbite of the Vice President saying: “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.”

“Biden has spoken with Floyd’s family and is making plans to attend his funeral, according to a family attorney. With the nation reeling over his death, Biden sees an opening,” he added, seemingly letting the cat out of the bag.

O’Keefe went on to scoff at the idea that Trump had helped the black community (the White House normally cited the historically low black unemployment rate, pre-pandemic). “Biden supporter and South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn, the most senior black lawmaker in the House, called the President’s remarks, quote, ‘Absolutely just downright stupid,’” he countered on Biden’s behalf.

 

 

Over on ABC’s World News Tonight, congressional correspondent Mary Bruce marveled at “the tale of two leaders, the President and the man who wants to replace him. President Trump holding that Bible, Joe Biden visiting a church.”

Touting “Biden taking on the President,” Bruce’s report was just back-to-back soundbites from Biden’s address with gushing commentary in between (click “expand”):

BRUCE: Biden calling on leaders to confront systemic racism. And blasting Trump for that bible photo-op.

BIDEN: I just wish he opened it once in a while instead of brandishing it. If he opened it, he could have learned something.

BRUCE: Biden speaking of his own loss, a parent losing a son.

BIDEN: I know what it means to have that black hole in your chest where your grief is being sucked into it.

BRUCE: Tonight, Biden is calling on Congress to ban chokeholds and vowing to establish a national police oversight commission.

(…)

BRUCE: And Biden’s promise, less than six months from the election.

BIDEN: I promise you this, I won’t traffic in fear and division. I won’t fan the flames of hate. I’ll seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country, not use them for political gain.

In wrapping up, Bruce noted that Biden was going to be making more public appearances as the country reopened. “Especially as he looks to draw the sharp contrast with President Trump,” she added.

NBC Nightly News took a different approach. Instead of giving Biden his own segment in the newscast, they directly showed the contrast between him and Trump in the same report.

After decrying Trump’s visit to a church that was almost burnt down by rioters Sunday night, correspondent Geoff Bennett hyped: “Joe Biden offering a stark contrast to the President (…) The apparent Democratic presidential nominee pledging to address racial injustice.”

BRUCE: Tonight, Biden is calling on Congress to ban choke holds and vowing to establish a national police oversight commission.

BIDEN: Donald Trump has turned this country into a battlefield driven by old resentments and fresh fears. He thinks division helps him. His narcissism has become more important than the nation’s well-being that he leads.

BRUCE: And Biden’s promise, less than six months from the election.

BIDEN: I promise you this, I won’t traffic in fear and division. I won’t fan the flames of hate. I’ll seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country, not use them for political gain.

ED O’KEEFE: Speaking outside his home state of Delaware for the first time since March, former Vice President Joe Biden today invoked the final words of George Floyd.

(…)

O’KEEFE: And he’s looking to reset a campaign grounded by the coronavirus.

(…)

O’KEEFE: A CBS News poll ow today shows Biden leads Trump’s nationally but when asked about Biden’s response of the past week, many Americans say they haven’t heard enough to say. Just this, Biden prayed with African American leaders and visited the asset a protest. Today, he rebuked Mr. Trump’s decision to use the bible as a prop outside St. John’s church.

(…)

O’KEEFE: The President claims he’s make inroads with African American voters, today saying he had done more than any president since Lincoln, but Biden believes his strong standing with the black community gives him an advantage in this crisis.

(…)

[Cuts back to live]

O’KEEFE: Responding to what President Trump said about his success with the black community, Biden supporter and South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn, the most senior black lawmaker in the House, called the President’s remarks, quote, “Absolutely just downright stupid.” Norah.

GEOFF BENNETT: Sources tell NBC News the President’s decision to visit that church was fueled, in part, by frustration over news reports that the Secret Service ushered him to a bunker during Friday night’s protest. And it “was his idea” because he “wanted the visual” of looking strong and in charge.

Meantime, Joe Biden offering a stark contrast to the President, today in Philadelphia.

FMR. VP JOE BIDEN: A country that is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can recognize pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for a long time.

BENNETT: The apparent Democratic presidential nominee pledging to address racial injustice.

BIDEN: The moment has come for our nation to deal with systemic racism. To deal with the growing economic inequity that exists in our nation, to deal with the denial of the promise of this nation made to so many.

BRUCE: Biden speaking of his own loss, a parent losing a son.

BIDEN: I know what it means to have that black hole in your chest where your grief is being sucked into it.

BRUCE: Tonight, Biden is calling on Congress to ban choke holds and vowing to establish a national police oversight commission.

BIDEN: Donald Trump has turned this country into a battlefield driven by old resentments and fresh fears. He thinks division helps him. His narcissism has become more important than the nation’s well-being that he leads.

BRUCE: And Biden’s promise, less than six months from the election.

BIDEN: I promise you this, I won’t traffic in fear and division. I won’t fan the flames of hate. I’ll seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country, not use them for political gain.

BRUCE: Now this was Biden’s first public address in months. But as the country opens up, we can expect to see more of Biden on the trail, especially as he looks to draw the sharp contrast with President Trump. And his campaign is defending to lay low for these past few weeks. They say just look at the poll numbers, which showing Biden on the rise. David.

MUIR: Mary Bruce, tonight, on the race for 2020. Thank you.

FMR. VP JOE BIDEN: “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.”

(…)

O’KEEFE: And he’s looking to reset a campaign grounded by the coronavirus.

(…)

O’KEEFE: A CBS News poll ow today shows Biden leads Trump’s nationally but when asked about Biden’s response of the past week, many Americans say they haven’t heard enough to say. Just this, Biden prayed with African American leaders and visited the asset a protest. Today, he rebuked Mr. Trump’s decision to use the bible as a prop outside St. John’s church.

(…)

O’KEEFE: The President claims he’s make inroads with African American voters, today saying he had done more than any president since Lincoln, but Biden believes his strong standing with the black community gives him an advantage in this crisis.

GEOFF BENNETT: Sources tell NBC News the President’s decision to visit that church was fueled, in part, by frustration over news reports that the Secret Service ushered him to a bunker during Friday night’s protest. And it “was his idea” because he “wanted the visual” of looking strong and in charge.

Meantime, Joe Biden offering a stark contrast to the President, today in Philadelphia.

FMR. VP JOE BIDEN: A country that is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can recognize pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for a long time.

BENNETT: The apparent Democratic presidential nominee pledging to address racial injustice.

BIDEN: The moment has come for our nation to deal with systemic racism. To deal with the growing economic inequity that exists in our nation, to deal with the denial of the promise of this nation made to so many.

Nets Tout Biden’s ‘Stark Contrast’ With Trump, ‘Promise’ to End Racism

Completely ignoring his recent racist comment declaring “you ain’t black” if you’re African American and vote for President Trump, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) praised former Vice President Joe Biden for providing a “stark” and “sharp” contrast to the President on the matter of George Floyd’s death.

“After staying close to home for months during the pandemic, today Joe Biden went to Philadelphia to address the anger over the deaths of George Floyd, and to blast President Trump for, in Biden’s words, turning the country into a battlefield,” announced CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell on Tuesday.

CBS political correspondent Ed O’Keefe touted how Biden had “invoked the final words of George Floyd” while giving a speech. He then played a soundbite of the Vice President saying: “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.”

“Biden has spoken with Floyd’s family and is making plans to attend his funeral, according to a family attorney. With the nation reeling over his death, Biden sees an opening,” he added, seemingly letting the cat out of the bag.

O’Keefe went on to scoff at the idea that Trump had helped the black community (the White House normally cited the historically low black unemployment rate, pre-pandemic). “Biden supporter and South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn, the most senior black lawmaker in the House, called the President’s remarks, quote, ‘Absolutely just downright stupid,’” he countered on Biden’s behalf.

Over on ABC’s World News Tonight, congressional correspondent Mary Bruce marveled at “the tale of two leaders, the President and the man who wants to replace him. President Trump holding that Bible, Joe Biden visiting a church.”

Touting “Biden taking on the President,” Bruce’s report was just back-to-back soundbites from Biden’s address with gushing commentary in between (click “expand”):

BRUCE: Biden calling on leaders to confront systemic racism. And blasting Trump for that bible photo-op.

BIDEN: I just wish he opened it once in a while instead of brandishing it. If he opened it, he could have learned something.

BRUCE: Biden speaking of his own loss, a parent losing a son.

BIDEN: I know what it means to have that black hole in your chest where your grief is being sucked into it.

BRUCE: Tonight, Biden is calling on Congress to ban chokeholds and vowing to establish a national police oversight commission.

(…)

BRUCE: And Biden’s promise, less than six months from the election.

BIDEN: I promise you this, I won’t traffic in fear and division. I won’t fan the flames of hate. I’ll seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country, not use them for political gain.

In wrapping up, Bruce noted that Biden was going to be making more public appearances as the country reopened. “Especially as he looks to draw the sharp contrast with President Trump,” she added.

NBC Nightly News took a different approach. Instead of giving Biden his own segment in the newscast, they directly showed the contrast between him and Trump in the same report.

After decrying Trump’s visit to a church that was almost burnt down by rioters Sunday night, correspondent Geoff Bennett hyped: “Joe Biden offering a stark contrast to the President (…) The apparent Democratic presidential nominee pledging to address racial injustice.”

Hollywood Triggered By Trump’s Bible Reference: ‘Forced Himself on a Church’

It’s not surprising that the president’s invocation of God during violent protests in D.C. on June 1 didn’t fly with the Hollywood left. The Christian faith is an obvious impediment to their progressive ambitions.Trump’s walk to St. John’s Church and subsequent raising of the Bible amid nationwide riots as leftists raged near the White House, seemed to really get under famous lefties’ skins.

Celebs like Nick Offerman, Stephen King, and Rosie O’Donnell blasted Trump’s symbolic gesture toward America’s religious traditions during this time of crisis. Some of them were so vitriolic it was like the president was giving them a virtual exorcism from the historical St. John’s Church.

Famous Parks and Rec pretend libertarian and real-life lefty Nick Offerman made a mockery of Trump’s religious moment by linking to the former playboy’s “sexual predation.” Offerman tweeted, “This sad boy is known for his sexual predation of women, but this has to be the first time a POTUS has forced himself upon a church?” The president of the majority Christian nation can’t even mention God without hateful commentary.

Bookworm and anti-Trump tough guy Stephen King got in some Christian bashing, tweeting that Christians would have been angry if Obama had brandished the Bible in the way Trump did after his speech. He wrote, “Dear fundamentalist Christian Trump supporters: If Obama had held the Bible backwards and upside down, you would immediately have called him the Antichrist.” Though, really, if Obama invoked Christianity in his job as president a bit more, perhaps conservatives would’ve liked him more.

Pop star Lauren Jauregui retweeted Catholic priest, Father Edward Beck, who asked, “Has the Bible ever been used in a more disingenuous and exploitative way?” Jauregui answered Beck in her caption, saying, “Since the beginning of our recorded time, sir. Last chapter’s looking like it’s real right about now tho.” So rioters are causing hellish scenes, but we’re supposed to believe that it’s conservatives who are ushering the events from Revelation?

Trump hater extraordinaire Rosie O’Donnell retweeted an unflattering cartoon of the president in front of St. John’s Church holding the Bible upside down. This depiction of Trump also featured him standing in front of the St. John’s signpost, which read, “This is a conman.”

Angry anti-American comedian Patton Oswalt snickered over Trump’s appeal to faith. He tweeted, “what the fuck is donald doing has he ever held a bible.” Very funny. Judging by Patton’s usual Twitter rhetoric, we’d presume he has never picked one up, either.

Celebs Blame Trump For Start of ‘2nd Civil War,’ Say Nothing Of Riots, Looting, Murders

Though multiple cities are burning from riots incited by leftist anarchists who have hijacked police brutality protests, Hollywood lefties can’t fathom that President Trump resolved to protect his own country.

In response to the president’s June 1 speech, during which he vowed to put down the violent riots that have emerged from protests in response to the barbaric killing of George Floyd, celebs such as Samuel L. Jackson, Jeffrey Wright, and Rob Reiner declared that Trump had begun a  “2nd Civil War” or had declared “Martial Law.”

What about the fact that D.C.’s been on fire from leftist anarchy, that people are being bludgeoned in the streets and that businesses are being looted? At least fifty secret service members were injured by rioters outside the White House, but a strong response is a terrible idea?  

Avengers star and Trump-hater Samuel L. Jackson put out a hyperbolic tweet on June 1. He asked, “Did we just get Martial Lawed??! So, he just Declared War on The Public??!! It’s not 1807 this is not Rebellion!!, but I think it’s about get all kinds of fucked up here!!” Of course Trump mentioned using the National Guard to quell violent rioters and looters, and offered their help should governors like Gavin Newsome (D-CA) request them. 

So if a Democrat governor brings in the National Guard, will Jackson still call it Martial law? 

Disney star Josh Gad whimpered about the dire state of affairs. On June 2, the Beauty and The Beast star tweeted, “I just want you all to really think about something as you go to bed. Every major city is mourning and/or burning. People are screaming for guidance.”

But Gad of course, went on to disparage Trump despite the fact that the president’s making an effort to stop the chaos. He added, “A pandemic continues to kill Americans at a staggering rate. And the President of the United States called Vladimir fucking Putin.” Look at that. More Russian collusion.

Rob Reiner ignored the riots and murders in the streets to say that the president’s actions are bringing about the “2nd Civil War.” He tweeted, “An angry sick frightened racist is pushing US into a 2nd Civil War.” And a privileged, bitter millionaire like Reiner would like innocent people to suffer for the sake of his political agenda. 

The Wire creator David Simon posed the question,”What happened to all those states-rights motherfuckers?  Where the hell did all those gibbering, put-upon patriots go?” Of course his point was that patriots aren’t standing up to Trump’s tyranny. He was clearly overlooking the fact that patriots are dealing with the tyrannical mobs Hollywood is encouraging in the streets.

Westworld actor and angry Trump hater Jeffrey Wright tweeted, “This is one of the worst nights for our country that any of us has ever known. Stories later today will be grim. We’re all complicit. But cowardly, divisive leadership in this WH is where the buck stops.” Ah, yes Trump, the leader who kneeled on George Floyd’s neck while simultaneously coughing on innocent bystanders, giving them coronavirus, is at fault. Wright added, “See him. This bankrupt & criminal failure of a pissant half man. This fraud.” 

Animal Kingdom actress Ellen Barkin tweeted, “Time to cut out the gentle language. Militarized police firing into peaceful protestors is not ‘unfortunate’. It’s fascism.” Oh right, they are all just peaceful protests, eh? Burning buildings, bleeding business owners, murdered cops and governors calling in the national guard. Why is Trump so evil?
