Sometimes, you really have to wonder what’s wrong with Hollywood liberals.
A few days ago, when the people of New York City were mourning the loss of a young officer killed while responding to a domestic dispute, actress Susan Sarandon thought it was a great time to share a meme on social media that called cops fascists.
It’s easy for someone like Sarandon to say this, considering she probably lives in a gated community with its own security.
Breitbart News reported:
Susan Sarandon Attacks Mourning NYPD Officers as Fascists During Funeral for Murdered Cop Jason Rivera
Susan Sarandon has attacked New York Police Department officers who attended the recent funeral of murdered cop Jason Rivera, posting a meme to Twitter calling cops fascists and questioning why police are even needed in New York City.
The Thelma and Louise star has received vociferous blowback for her smear on law enforcement, including statements of condemnation from the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York and the National Fraternal Order of Police.
Susan Sarandon posted the meme on Tuesday, just days after thousands of NYPD officers lined Fifth Ave. in New York to pay their respects to Detective Jason Rivera, 22, who is one of the youngest police officers killed in the line of duty in New York City history.
One part of Sarandon’s meme said “this is what fascism looks like,” over an image of the funeral procession. Another part of the meme used the funeral to question the need for law enforcement: “So, if all these cops weren’t needed for CRIME that day, doesn’t that mean they aren’t needed ANY day?”
Here’s Sarandon’s tweet:

The NYC Police Benevolent Association fired back:
This is what privilege looks like: a wealthy actress, safe in her bubble, mocking heroes & making light of the crisis that cops are battling alongside our communities. NYC is uniting to stop the violence — @SusanSarandon is living on a different planet.https://t.co/U1q0t32TzR

So did this police organization:
Of all the days for @SusanSarandon to share her true feelings towards police, she picks the day we bury our fallen brother to make such inflammatory & brainless comments. When you spend more time hating on cops than you do your own career, it's no wonder why you're a D-list actor https://t.co/y4iIUV6IxB

You really have to wonder what Sarandon was thinking here.
