A small group of Hollywood leftists – yes, I realize that’s redundant – have signed a petition – which will go nowhere – demanding police departments be defunded.
Celebrities John Legend and Megan Rapinoe are among those who reportedly signed a petition to defund police departments.
The petition calls for local governments to decrease spending on police departments and increase spending on health care and education, according to a report published Tuesday by Rolling Stone. Other celebrities who reportedly signed include Common, the Weeknd, Lizzo, Jane Fonda and Anthony Romero, the executive director of the ACLU.
Wait, I thought the article mentioned celebrities, not has-beens and never-weres?
The petition summarized three key points at the end.
“Vote no on all increases to police budgets,” it said. “Vote yes to decrease police spending and budgets. Vote yes to increase spending on Health care, Education, and Community programs that keep us safe.”
Believe it or not, I am all for this venture. Defunding police departments would allow me to: retire earlier than I planned, move out of this awful city and state sooner, and start a new life in a red state which doesn’t suffer leftists.
Plus, this petition has the added benefit of less cops on the street, less firepower to engage hostiles, and longer emergency response times. These leftists believe health care, education, and community programs will keep them safe. When a group of Antifa thugs break into your million-dollar homes – and they eventually will – call the community program. We’ll be busy in the division playing poker.
