You might be seeing less of actor Denzel Washington, if the usual suspects respond in the usual way to dissent. While it Hollywood has made it very difficult for anyone not toeing the woke extremist line to become a noted actor, what happens if one is already on top of that hill and opens his mouth regardless?
Washington was speaking with Yahoo Entertainment for his upcoming film The Little Things, and, being that he plays a disgraced police officer in the movie, the discussion steered towards people who hate cops and the military.
Washington stated, “I have the utmost respect for what they do, for what our soldiers do, [people] that sacrifice their lives.”
He added, “I just don’t care for people who put those kind of people down. If it weren’t for them, we would not have the freedom to complain about what they do.”
Washington of a ride along he had in 1991 and how it helped influence his views, “I went out on call with a sergeant. We got a call of a man outside his house with a rifle that was distraught. We pulled up and did a U-turn past the house and came up short of the house. He told me to sit in the car, which I was gonna do. I wasn’t getting out. He got out. As he got out, another car came screaming up and two young people jumped out screaming. As it turned out, it was their grandfather. This policeman defused the entire situation by just remaining calm.”
I wonder if Denzel’s phone will be ringing less often now…
