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.
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. He jetted in from California to join hundreds of like-minded cop-bashers, including activist/academic Dr. Cornel West, at a rally in Washington Square Park put on by RiseUpOctober, part of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“I’m a human being with a conscience,” Tarantino told the crowd, as his despised police made sure that no harm came to a single hair on his demented head. “And if you believe there’s murder going on, then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.”
Spare me the rubbish.
The weekend protest came four days after a genuine hero, NYPD Police Officer Randolph Holder 33 — posthumously promoted to the rank of detective — was shot to death on a pedestrian overpass above the FDR Drive in East Harlem, allegedly by career criminal Tyrone Howard, 30.
