Quentin Tarantino’s father speaks out against son’s anti-police statements

Cops across the nation join NYPD in Tarantino boycott.

“I love my son and have great respect for him as an artist, but he is dead wrong in calling police officers, particularly in New York where I grew up, murderers,” Tony Tarantino said, according to a statement from the NYPD’s largest union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association. “I’m a human being with a conscience,” Quentin 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. 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.Filthy-rich, weak-brained filmmaker Quentin Tarantino wasn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last moronic celebrity to roam through New York City, drumming up fury against police officers who risk their lives to protect his miserable hide. I believe that is what happened when he joined in those anti-cop protests.” Quentin Tarantino was speaking at a rally protesting police brutality when he said: “This is not being dealt with in any way at all. 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.

Cops are not murderers, they are heroes.” “He wanted to be an actor,” he told the paper “Now he’s an actor only because he has my last name. 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. 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. But his son, Quentin Tarantino, has insulted the very people who protect his freedom of speech and who facilitate the making of his films,” Lynch said. “He owes an apology to law enforcement officers across country and we will continue to encourage the boycotting of his films until he makes such an apology. 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.

It’s part of the job and we do it with pride.” “If he’s going to be a man of his word and stick to calling them murderers, then he should have his premiere without them, and let’s see how they work out,” Cain said. “I love his movies, but I absolutely despise his comments.” “No matter how genuine and harmless celebrity fans may be, proper distance and presence need to be maintained to deter against an occasional threat or worse, to react in the event something occurs,” Newman said. 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. Basketball players LeBron James and Kobe Bryant attended pregame warmups in December wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “I Can’t Breathe,’’ the final words of Eric Garner, the Staten Island man who died as he resisted arrest. 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.

Organizers of the protest have vigorously defended the filmmaker. (Bebeto Matthews/Associated Press) “It really is an attempt to squelch any discussion by people in the arts or prominent people in other fields of taking up and discussing controversial social issues,” he said. 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. 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. 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.
