Video: When sensitive dudes who don’t like cops put on a cop’s uniform

posted at 4:01 pm on September 11, 2015 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate, via Newsbusters, this isn’t as irritating as that “I’m a Christian but I’m not a jerk” video that BuzzFeed put out earlier this week but it’s plenty irritating. What insight is gained by having people who distrust the police don the blue, only to proclaim that they still feel the same way five minutes later? When BuzzFeed has done these young-fish-out-of-liberal-water stunts in the past, they’ve had the good sense to include a few kids in the resulting vid who found themselves surprised to have enjoyed the experience. There’s a lesson in that about not letting yourself be forced into boycotting what the other party does for fun just because your political allies frown upon it. All you get from this clip is a bunch of guys saying “cops are scary jerks,” followed by them dressing up like cops and remarking that they now look like scary jerks. Lesson: Cops are scary jerks any way you slice it! Good talk, BuzzFeed. Coming soon, hopefully: Young leftists don three-piece suits and hang out in the lobby of Goldman Sachs. Will this change their views of bankers and capitalism? Stay tuned.

Here’s the clip, plus Greg Gutfeld’s take on it from “The Five.” What would the young-fish-out-of-conservative-water equivalent of the “liberals go to the gun range” clip be? Conservatives go to … the abortion clinic, maybe? Don’t laugh. Some feminists will tell you that that’s supposed to be an enjoyable experience. Actually, I think it’d be fun and cheeky if BuzzFeed or the IJ Review or whoever invited a bunch of tea partiers to a Washington cocktail party thrown by GOP consultants, as admission to those fabled parties is supposed to be the siren song that’s forever luring candy-ass RINO sellouts like me to dump on classy populist heroes like Donald Trump. The D.C. cocktail party is supposedly ground zero of establishment treachery; some will tell you in hushed tones that Karl Rove puts on a goat’s-head mask and leads chants to Obama’s greatness. Why not let some true-believing grassroots conservatives in and see what happens?

Honestly, I see jerk before I see hero.

Me too, dude. The bad news is, I’m pretty sure that would be the case looking at you regardless of what you were wearing.

Hate to break this to ya dude, but it’s not the uniform. It’s the jerk wearing it. Or at least, trying (and failing) to wear it.

No – but pigs can…..

OK, now that I’ve written that, and considering the subject – it is NOT a slur about cops – just a reference to the movie Babe.

After watching that video and those babbling idiots I can understand police brutality a lot more than I used to. If you had a baton and no one was looking…welllll

Looks like the typical stolen valor type who should never be allowed to wear a uniform for an honorable profession – military, police, fire….

I definitely get that urge when I read certain news stories about thugs in action.
If I was a cop, I’d have a hard time NOT beating some of them to a bloody pulp – and I’m feeling more and more like a lot of them need and deserve it.

You just know that these liberal beta jerks who constantly whine about oppression and patriarchy or whatnot would be the most arrogant crooked cops out there if they actually were given any shred of power instead of just playing dress-up. Look what happens whenever one of them stumbles into elected office…

I see a cop wannabe pretending to be a cop, who would be the one to pull over a real cop….

dentarthurdent on September 11, 2015 at 4:19 PM

Right – they say that now … but after a few drinks, every one of these guys will be trolling the bars, desperately searching for a hot cop in tight pants, with a BIG nightstick …

Beta males have to be embarrassed by these guys.

Why did they stop at playing dress-up? Why not do some ride-alongs in Detroit, East St Louis, South Central or Southside Chicago?

CurtZHP on September 11, 2015 at 4:58 PM

The fundamental thing is that these guys hate themselves and then project that on the police in varying ways and degrees. The infantile, narcissist White House 0bamanation lawless, fascist, bigoted traitor is a perfect example of this. Those of us without that hangup don’t have that problem, proving how as usual the police usually aren’t the problem.

Obama feels this same way every day he wakes up and puts on the Presidential suit.

portlandon on September 11, 2015 at 5:49 PM

All these boys are fairies, sissies scared of themselves in the mirror. The one who is going straight to hell is the dork who said he was the son/grandson of cops, yet he is forthcoming with plenty of dismissive snide comments and insulting attitude that any progressive cop-hater would feel happy to own. Your ancestors are even more ashamed of you than you are of them, pajama boy.

fitzsweetpea on September 11, 2015 at 6:10 PM

The uniform itself doesn’t mean dick.

Not until you’ve completed the extensive background check, thorough training and done the job for a few years do you really know what it’s about.

This video is as informative as taping some kids standing behind the POTUS podium and saying, “I don’t feel presidential.”

Stupid waste of bandwidth.

RedNewEnglander on September 11, 2015 at 6:21 PM

Sooooooooooooooo sensitive.

Ugh. How exactly do these guys get laid? How many showings of Brokeback Mountain can you it through just to get a little somethin’ somethin’?

princetrumpet on September 11, 2015 at 7:10 PM

Whenever I see something like this I wonder how this would be viewed back in say the 1940s when men were actually men.

The Notorious G.O.P on September 11, 2015 at 7:38 PM

Any jerk can put on a uniform, but they shouid go ride a week with a real policeman to get together full experience. Playing dress up is way too lame.

No post on the cop who tackled retired tennis star and now the whole city has egg on their face because as the #BLM has said this happens ALL THE TIME. Hey Black guy..you fit the description!!! But it’s not all cops right? No post on the story about the cop who was a whistle blower on his racist police chief and is now getting death threats from people in his community?! Guess those stories don’t fit the narrative that “liberals hate cops for no reason” that you guys want to push huh? I get it

Do you even watch CNN? They explained why Blake was tackled — he was identified by the suspect they’d just arrested in the lobby as the other perpetrator in a fraudulent credit card purchase worth $18,000. The two guys arrested (who were both white) claimed on their website that a black man was in charge — a man who was, according the CNN, a dead ringer for Blake. [That man has also been cleared as innocent.]

Hey Black guy..you fit the description!!! But it’s not all cops right?

No, it’s not all cops. In fact, the cop who took down Blake had reasonable suspicion. But liberals really do hate cops. Your comment here is

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=cop+whistleblower+racist+police+chief+michael+a+wood

This guy? Hmm. The jury is out but why didn’t he speak up before leaving the department?

The recent allegations made by Mr Michael Wood are serious and very troubling. The Police Commissioner has made clear that the Baltimore Police Department will never tolerate malicious conduct.

We hope that during his time as both a sworn member and as a sergeant with supervisory obligations, Mr Wood reported these disturbing allegations at the time of their occurrence. If he did not, we strongly encourage him to do so now, so that our Internal Affairs Division can begin an immediate investigation.

In a recently published letter to the Baltimore Sun, the Police Commissioner made clear that his reform efforts remain focused on rooting out the type of conduct that is alleged.

Guess those stories don’t fit the narrative that “liberals hate cops for no reason” that you guys want to push huh? I get it

I’m sure liberals have plenty of reasons to kill cops. They do it so often…

Sissies dressed as cops: Hey, man, how’s a dude s’posedta walk with all this stuff hangin’ from his belt?

Real cops can outrun criminals while carrying a gun, Taser, handcuffs, and a nightstick on their belts.

One thing missing from the cop uniform on these imposters: courage.

You gave it way, you have been on the RINO DC Cocktail party circuit.

None of those clowns are even fit to shine the shoes of a cop.

I can, however, see them in a McDonald’s apron and hairnet. It’s just about their speed.

WhirledPeas on September 12, 2015 at 1:32 AM

I remember after one of the shootings, some cops took a local activist (a pastor iirc) through one of their “shoot or don’t shoot” trainings. First time he was “killed,” second time he killed an unarmed man, third time I think he killed an armed man. He said that it was very enlightening, and gave him new perspective on what the cops go through. He would still advocate his position, but in a different way with new directions.

Too bad BuzzFeed didn’t try something that might, you know, TEACH.

RblDiver on September 12, 2015 at 3:28 AM

They must have thought they were putting on a “onesie” instead of a police uniform.

NoPain on September 12, 2015 at 11:35 AM

They’re not “beta-bros” or “beta males,” because those are bull—-, made-up expressions. They’re just left-wing dolts.

Something like that happened to me in the video game “Heavy Rain”, I’m really bad at video games so I get killed all the time, in the game there’s a scene where a totally crazy guy rushed me investigating his apartment. The first time I killed him, it was a chastening experience.
