If you ever needed an answer to who the most liberal director of our time is, that would most easily be Mr. Quentin Tarantino. Known for his genre-bending, overly-violent films like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained, Tarantino has crafted a name for himself with his sharp criticism of societal boundaries on cinema.
However, Tarantino has gone out of his way to posit his own personal political viewpoints, such as his high praise for President Obama during an interview with Vulture Magazine. Last Saturday, however, he took to marching in the streets of New York City, as part of a demonstration protesting the widespread reports of police brutality in the country.
“If you believe there’s murder going on then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.”
The marchers reportedly gathered in Washington Square Park before walking up 6th Avenue. The protest was arranged by a group known only as RiseUpOctober, who were no doubt influenced significantly by the hashtag movement #blacklivesmatter.
