Anti-Trump soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who rose to prominence for her refusal to honor the US national anthem as a supposed form of “protest,” has now signed a letter along with many other celebrities calling on US police departments to be defunded.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Wealthy celebrities like soccer star Megan Rapinoe, musicians John Legend and Lizzo, and left-wing activist and actress Jane Fonda have all signed an open letter demanding the “divestment from police.”
The letter was posted on DefendingBlackLives.org and titled, “A Letter to Demand Divestment from Police and an Investment in Black Communities.”
According to Rolling Stone, “The letter was released by activist Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter and a founding member of the Movement 4 Black Lives, a coalition of more than 100 black-rights organizations.”
Black Lives Matter is a radical anti-cop activist group. Its members have chanted for dead officers, and a 2016 lawsuit from the father of a slain Dallas officer accused the activist group of inciting the “war on police” that led to his son’s death.
It seems pampered celebrities really have no idea who actually keeps order in the streets of America, but they may be educated quite quickly if they end up getting their wish.
