Russell Simmons Cowardly Deletes ‘F*** THE POLICE UNION’ Tweet

Hip hop mogul Russell Simmons gives an interview to CNN.

Without the Twitter aggregator site Twitchy, one might be fooled by the latest attempt by hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons to present himself as a decent advocate for meaningful change. Simmons, a known leftist and previous supporter of the anarchist Occupy Wall Street movement, tweeted out his condolences following the execution-style shooting of two NYPD officers by a black gunman claiming “revenge” for Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Simmons later followed up with another tweet claiming he loves the police. Except, the man who wrote a book advocating meditation as a means to calm ourselves before making rash decisions, deleted a tweet that stated ‘F*** THE POLICE UNION’ that he sent out commenting on police protests in New York City and nationwide.

Well, if you bought that book, then it’s safe to say you wasted your money. Either this man doesn’t practice what he preaches, or he is flat-out full of it. I’m going with option two.

Of course, Simmons might have been a bit aggravated that day for having to defend his precious peaceful protestors, who had just been caught on video screaming “What Do We Want? Dead Cops!” Still, I, like Twitchy, am a bit unclear on what about that story constitutes propaganda, unlike say, perpetuating the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie that forensic evidence and witness testimony prove never even happened.

Second, if Simmons didn’t make a typo, or actually mean to say “start policing themselves” rather than “stop policing themselves,” then he should be asked who it is he is suggesting police the police, if not themselves.

Occupy Wall Street? Eric Holder and the Justice Department, perhaps? Or, some other vigilante group without authority or oversight?

Nevertheless, the “propaganda” that Mr. Simmons is talking about was pretty prophetic in hindsight.

Recently, NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley made headlines for criticizing the media, so-called black leaders and other role models, specifically Russell Simmons, for jumping to conclusions over the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Barkley defended the police — and, of Simmons in particular — said he is part of a larger culture that demonize black Americans who try to get ahead.

“There’s a perception among some black people that if you’re not a thug, a hood rat or you don’t wear your pants around your ass, then you’re not black enough,” Barkley said of Simmons and others. “And they’re always holding us back, plain and simple.”

Yup, sounds like Russell. In fact, it sounds like a typical radical leftist, who preys on the ignorant and angry on the fringe of society, and to hell with the consequences. Simmons, like other useful idiots, sadly always lack the courage to even defend themselves when their true colors are exposed.

Shameful.

  • Charles, stick to round ball, please! Who in hell has ever held you back, because you weren’t black enough? You will say anything to get attention, kind of like this blog author. More bullshit than a roomful of radios…

  • Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm… sorry to be the one to have to explain this to you, but there has been absolutely NOTHING presented as ‘proof’ that Michael Brown did not have his hands up. The coroner’s report states that the forensic evidence ‘does not support’ the story of hands being up. That is completely different than ‘proof’ that it didn’t happen.

    And second, while the deletion of the tweet by Simmons is a bit cowardly, there is absolutely no conflict in saying “I love cops” and also saying “F… the Police Union”. The union has become de facto ‘Defense Council’ for cops accused of wrongdoing. Instead of representing ALL cops, they now represent only BAD cops. If a cop put on a black mask, broke into someone’s home and shot them dead while they slept, the union would be trying to get charges dropped and crying about how they were simply ‘protecting and serving’. They have all the credibility of the often seen “suspect’s mom” claiming that her child could “never have done this..”

    • I am “sorry to be the one to explain this to you,” but you have been completely hoodwinked. The only question now is whether or not you would like that to ever happen to you again.

      The complete forensic evidence IS conclusive, he NEVER HAD HIS HANDS UP! He was shot in the top of the head only consistent with having his head down in a charging position.

      Out of the 16 witnesses Daryl Parks and Crump keep citing, there are only two witnesses who even stuck with that story, and one of them, is the co-conspirator of the strong-arm robbery, Mr. Johnson.

      Let’s recap from witness testimony, shall we?

      “You have to understand the mentality of some of these young guys,” witness #14, an African-American witness told investigators. “They have nothing to do. When they can latch on to something, they embellish it because they want something to do. The majority of them do not work, all they do is sit around and get high all day.”

      W#14 said within minutes a crowd appeared and began to “embellish when the stepfather showed up.”

      And it goes on and on, with one black witness after another testifying what the forensic evidence shows – he attacked Wilson and was shot trying to charge him.

      Read the report yourself, fellow-citizen. Don’t be a “useful idiot,” which is the term the left uses to describe people like you who can’t even take time to reread the grand jury indictment.

      Here’s a brief recap if you are still too lazy.

      Second, the incomplete corner report from Dr. Michael Baden, who I personally interviewed, which even he admitted was “incomplete” and lacked all of the evidence, was done by a man who turned out not to even be a docter– but a fraud.

      He has subsequently apologized for allowing him on the team.

      Your lack of information can only be described as laziness or ignorance. You will ultimately have to decide which one it is. In the meantime, Happy Holidays!
