Boycott of ‘cop hater’ Quentin Tarantino’s films over ‘murderers’ slur spreads.

NEW YORK – When Quentin Tarantino premiered “Django Unchained” in New York City on December 11, 2012 at the Ziegfeld Theater, police officers closed the streets and manned the barricades so that he and the film’s stars Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. NEW YORK (AP) — Organizers of a rally against police brutality spoke up Thursday in support of filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, who has been condemned by the New York Police Department’s commissioner and police associations over his remarks at the weekend event.

Cops across the nation, including those with the LAPD and the Philadelphia Police Department, have joined NYPD officers in a boycott of director Quentin Tarantino for his anti-cop comments just days after Officer Randolph Holder was murdered.Calls for an American police boycott of Quentin Tarantino’s films are gathering steam, with police unions in three US cities pledging their support for the campaign launched by New York’s union chief. The Academy Award-winning filmmaker behind “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained” had joined demonstrators in the city speaking out on Saturday against the deaths of people at the hands of police. “I’m a human being with a conscience,” Tarantino said at the rally. “And if you believe there’s murder going on then you need to rise up and stand up against it.

Until now, the Oscar-winning auteur’s greatest contribution to cultural disintegration involved directing, co-writing and acting in “Pulp Fiction,’’ the minimally amusing 1994 cinematic ode to nihilism and ultra-violence. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.” Tarantino’s remarks were quick to spark anger among several law enforcement officals, including Bratton and NYC Patrolmen Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch. #RiseUpOctober posted a series of statements on its website supporting Tarantino, from other organizers as well as relatives of those killed by police. I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers.” The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association of the City of New York (PBA) blasted his statements.

In the statement, Dix slammed Lynch, commenting on a statement the PBA president made about the death of Eric Garner last year. “I challenge Pat Lynch and anyone else to a debate over what’s the real problem: our protest of murder by police or police getting away with murder,” Dix said in the statement. So did the Los Angeles Protective League, and most recently, Philadelphia’s Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #5, all of which have urged moviegoers to boycott his films. Lynch told FOX411 via email: “The irony of protecting cop-haters, particularly wealthy, entitled, elitist cop-haters like Quentin Tarantino, is not lost on the police officers who struggle to support their families in the most expensive city in America.

Al Sharpton — Holder couldn’t stand the frequent cop-basher, his grieving fiancée said — claimed, apparently falsely, that the dead officer’s father had invited him to deliver the eulogy at his son’s funeral in Queens Wednesday. At a separate gathering in Times Square a few days earlier, he had taken to the stage to read out the names of some of the victims of police shootings. The site notes that those deaths are recorded “whether [they occurred] in the line of duty or not, and regardless of reason or method … inclusion implies neither wrongdoing nor justification on the part of the person killed or the officer involved”. Tarantino also is the director of movies including “Kill Bill” and “Reservoir Dogs.” His next film, “The Hateful Eight,” is scheduled for release in late December. When Beyoncé and Jay Z bailed out protesters who wreaked havoc in Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo., they aided people who contributed to black poverty by destroying businesses owned or run mainly by black people.

But while a report by the city’s Medical Examiner’s Office mentioned an alleged police chokehold as a probable cause of Garner’s death, it also listed health factors that contributed to his demise, including his history of obesity and hypertension. And while protesters in Ferguson raised their hands in surrender, chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot’’ — supposedly the last words of slain Michael Brown — the phrase was unlikely ever to have been uttered by the man in police custody. She may play one of the most iconic characters on television, but Emilia Clarke said she felt a little lost before transforming into ‘ famous dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen.

I’m short and round and brown,” Clarke told The Wrap at Hollywood’s Power Women Breakfast on Wednesday. “Cate Blanchett in, that was something I watched a lot while preparing for season one. President Obama, too, defended a movement that targets cops for disrespect and violence. “I think the reason that the organizers used the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ was not because they were suggesting nobody else’s lives matter,’’ he said during a panel discussion on criminal-justice reform last week. “Rather, what they were suggesting was there is a specific problem that’s happening in the African-American community that’s not happening in other communities.’’ A war has been declared on cops, but you wouldn’t know it if you listened to the denialists. And the fact that it was rooted in reality was empowering, to say the least.” The 1998 film, which followed England’s Queen Elizabeth through her surprise ascension to the throne to becoming an iron-clad ruler, won Australian-born Blanchett a BAFTA and Golden Globe Award and swag Oscar nominations. “So I could have it be the put-upon abused naïve child that she was in the beginning and then through each different epic turn of events throughout that first season I was able to harness each strength that came with those events and realise the steeliness I could inhabit as an actress.”

Two, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, also posthumously promoted to detectives, were shot to death by a lunatic who, riled up by anti-cop rhetoric, traveled from Baltimore to murder police, then shot himself to death. The low point came when CNBC yakker Becky Quick asked Donald Trump about a verbal jab that she accused him of leveling against Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg over a proposal to grant American visas to highly skilled immigrants.

The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has decreed that processed meats, including bacon — lovely, scrumptious bacon — are “carcinogenic to humans,’’ like tobacco and asbestos, and that eating red meat probably increases one’s chances of growing not love handles, but colorectal tumors. It seems as if every time I sit down to eat, some expert contends that the things I crave most, from coffee to red wine, either can kill me or make me live longer. But suffice it to say that the Internet is abuzz with explanations as to why the seemingly dead apocalypse-dweller was not eaten by zombies, and will live on.

Gals pay willing surgeons $5,500 to $7,500 apiece to take a scalpel to their private parts to make them look sleeker in yoga pants, The Post’s Jane Ridley reported.
