Denzel Washington is not your typical Hollywood celebrity. He’s not a fruitcake who is so afraid of not being loved by pop culture icons and Twitter keyboard Woke Supremacists that he’ll jump on any dumbass off-the-wall bandwagon for fear of being canceled.
The Oscar award-winning actor has already talked about his Christian faith in public. I remember almost a half dozen years ago when Washington said, “There’s never been a time where God didn’t direct protect and correct me. There may have been times where I was less than faithful to him, but he had faith in me.”
There was also a time this great man spoke up and blamed black crime on a lack of fathers saying, “It starts with how you raise your children,” he said. “If a young man doesn’t have a father figure, he’ll go find a father figure. So you know I can’t blame the system. It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them.” It took a lot of guts for him to say that what with working in Hollywood and all, but the man has the guts to do it.
Washington goes contrarian on a lot of social issues that the Left claims moral superiority over, and he stands up and lets them know that they’re wrong. The Hollywood actor is a breath of fresh air as far as I’m concerned. He clearly understands American values and common sense, and he clearly is one of those that the Biden, Pelosi, Schumer Woke Supremacy would want to be sent to a reeducation camp, because you can’t have logic like that floating around the Mecca of radical pop culture.
What a lot of the cowards of Hollywood are joining in with things like the “abolish the police” movement Washington once again took what has been a very pro-American stance in saying that he is against defunding the police and he appreciates members of the military. Unfortunately, that’s not the stance of most weak celebrities in Hollywood who have drunk the Woke Kool-Aid.
Washington is portraying another police officer in his upcoming movie “The Little Things,” where he’ll play Joe “Deke” Deacon, a Kern County Deputy Sheriff in California.
Washington was asked during an interview what his thoughts were toward police at a time when they are being pounced on by a criminal element that has Woke politicians backing them instead of law-abiding people.
“I have the utmost respect for what they do, for what our soldiers do, [people] that sacrifice their lives,” Washington answered. “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.”
The Oscar winner reminisced back to the early days of his acting career when he was in the movie “Ricochet” back in 1991. He did a ride-along with an LAPD officer to prepare for his role as Nick Styles an assistant DA and he said that experience changed his entire perspective on police.
“I went out on call with a sergeant,” Washington recalled. “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,” the 66-year-old actor said. “As it turned out, it was their grandfather. This policeman defused the entire situation by just remaining calm.”
“But it showed me in an instant how they can lose their life,” Denzel related. “He didn’t overreact. He could’ve pulled his gun out and shot the people that came up driving real fast. He could’ve shot the old man that was distraught and a bit confused, I think he was suffering a little bit from dementia.”
Washington went on to say, “But in an instant, it taught me, and I never forgot it, what our law enforcement people have to deal with moment to moment, second to second.”
I wish more Hollywood people would jump on Washington’s bandwagon and come back to reality, because the way things are going now with the new administration and crazy radical Woke Supremacists running Congress, it’s not going to be a bright future for America, and people who work in Hollywood can influence people either way. Right now the majority are not pro America. They could learn a lot from a man like Denzel Washingon.
