‘FASCISM’: Susan Sarandon Slammed for Anti-Cop Screed
Far-left activist Susan Sarandon shared a post on social media comparing New York City cops mourning their fallen NYPD colleague to fascists.
The “Thelma & Louise” actress shared an image of a tweet that read, “I’m gonna tell my kids this is what fascism looks like” as officers gathered for slain NYPD Detective Jason Rivera’s funeral.
“So, if all these cops weren’t needed for CRIME that day, doesn’t that mean they aren’t needed ANY day?” Sarandon wrote.
The Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York rebuked her Thursday.
“This is what privilege looks like: a wealthy actress, safe in her bubble, mocking heroes & making light of the crisis that cops are battling alongside our communities,” the NYC PBA wrote.
“NYC is uniting to stop the violence — @SusanSarandon is living on a different planet.”
The National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) slammed her as a “D-list actor” in a tweet.
“Of all the days for @SusanSarandon to share her true feelings towards police, she picks the day we bury our fallen brother to make such inflammatory & brainless comments.”
Retired NYPD Detective Angel L Maysonet also weighed in on her anti-cop rhetoric.
“There are 35K #NYPD cops in NYC. This is 3 hours. Many off duty, other agencies, representing over 850K sworn LEOs in this country. Shame on you @SusanSarandon 2 young Dominican cops were killed & you spread anti police rhetoric,” he said. “You’re a disgusting person.”
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who is running for governor in New York, tweeted: “Congratulations, Susan Sarandon! You’re now the poster child of an angry, woke, liberal, pro-criminal, anti-law and order jerk. There are other more fitting titles, but it only gets more vulgar from here.”
