The Walking Dead Actor, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, is stirring the pot again on social media. If you recall, Morgan caused an uproar by posting a profanity-laced message to President Trump after Charlottesville. This time, he shares a picture of himself wearing a shirt in support of police officers.
That’s when the fight started…
Leftists were more than happy to support Morgan while he was cursing the president, and blaming him for racism. However, they quickly changed their tune when Morgan showed support for law enforcement by wearing a “Thin Blue Line” t-shirt. In response to Morgan’s post, people were calling him a “Nazi” and a “racist.”
Then, angry over the remarks, Morgan fires back. His subsequent (and now deleted) post reads in part:
“Dear A**holes, Blue lives do matter. Can’t believe I need to explain to you this fact. All lives matter. All of ‘em. This shirt was made in response to the cold-blooded murder of two GOOD cops in NY… This shirt was given to me at a convention by a woman, whose son, was shot during what was a routine traffic stop. He was black.”
Consequently, the officers Morgan is referring to are Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. They were ambushed in their patrol car in retaliation for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. The deaths of Ramos of Liu led to the “Thin Blue Line” mantra. Garner and Brown’s death, spawned the anti-cop, “Black Lives Matter” movement.
Nevertheless, just when it seems Morgan is to be commended for shutting down the leftist bullies, he reverses course. In an Instagram post, (also deleted) he says he stands by his original remarks. BUT, then he apologizes for hurting leftist’s tender feelings:
“I stand behind the sentiment… but, what was meant as one thing has been taken as another. I understand those that are upset… and to those people I apologize. Of course, black lives matter. I stand behind that. Always have.”
Incidentally, Morgan adds that this country “means the world to him” but racists and bullies do not. However, that is not apparent in his post. When a person says, “all lives matter,” doesn’t that include black lives?
How can he say that racist and bullies don’t matter, and then turn around and apologize for offending them?
