Despite the criticism she received after her provocative, racially themed Super Bowl halftime performance, Beyoncé didn’t hesitate recreate it at the Video Music Awards over the weekend.
Beyoncé’s act included symbolic depictions of African-Americans being shot by police officers, and she even walked down the red carpet with the mothers of Trayvon Martin and other Black Lives Matter “martyrs.”
On Fox and Friends, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t mince words when talking about the singer’s display of ignorance:
“You’re asking the wrong person because I had five uncles who were police officers, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty. I ran the largest and best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department. And I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime and particularly homicide by 75 percent.
“I was sick when I saw all the politicians sitting, standing in Baltimore after the police situation and saying, nobody’s done anything for this community in 50 years. Well, that is a heck of a thing to say, because they’ve been in charge for 50 years. And they have failed the community. I didn’t fail Harlem. I turned Harlem around.”
Unfortunately, Beyoncé has millions of rabid fans who get their “news” from her and other celebrities. Facts, history and statistics don’t matter to them. Some are too young to even remember Giuliani’s leadership after 9/11. It’s depressing to think how many of them are eligible to vote.
Beyoncé has armed bodyguards to protect her. Who do her fans think will rush to their aide when they’re in trouble?
