What kind of normal people cancel a charity event because Republicans will be there?

This is as good as their naming and shaming for supporting one of our 2 major parties.

I could go on. But to deny the recipients money that could be raised because you don't like their politics is sick.

Since there have been no responses to your deep, thought provoking question, I will venture a guess:

What is wrong with the Left?
1. Obama?
2. The emails?
3. The Deep State?
4. Bad Jews who don't appreciate the best president for Jews of all time?
5. Good people on both sides?
6. Socialist Communists who want to take over our country, murder our babies, and outlaw bris milah?
7. An overwhelming Illness that blinds all who catch it to the many virtuous actions of Trump and his Republican Party (refuah shelaima)

Am I getting warm?

The new left is absolutely crazy.
The old left has (almost?) nothing wrong.

I want to see how fast a thread titled “What is wrong with the right?” is shut down, after some dramatic victim playing by the right. Rolling Eyes

This is weird, because it was an event to honor a fallen police officer and it was actually the police chief who told them that the police would not attend or support it if the speakers were present. Generally, cops aren't "leftist."

It's surprising, but why hold an event for police if they refuse to attend?

Here's an article with more info from the police. Looks like they objected to two specific speakers, not just "Republicans" since there were plenty invited they didn't have a problem with.

Quote:
Sponsoring organizations pulled out of the event after Thousand Oaks Police Chief Tim Hagel said his department would no longer support it, Fox 11 reported. The city of Thousand Oaks contracts with the Ventura County Sheriff's Office for police services, according to its website.

Hagel reportedly signaled he would withdraw from the event after learning that Trump supporter Scott Baio, who went to the same church as Helus, and Joy Villa, an open supporter of Trump, would be in attendance, with Villa set to sing the national anthem.

Mike Randall, vice president of the Fallen Officers Foundation, which had organized the charity football game, told Fox 11 that Hagel reached out to him and said the attendees would stir up local political issues.

"He basically said over and over in the conversation this is not Trump country, that the slogan 'Make America Great' is not favorable, popular, within 1,200 square miles, that we don’t want Republicans here, I could not believe it,” Randall told the outlet.

He added that Hagel told him “the only thing you [could have done to make] this worse, Mike, was to invite Dick Cheney and Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” referring to the former vice president and former White House press secretary, respectively.

The sheriff for Ventura County, where Helus served, issued a statement regarding the canceled event.

"The 'Blue Bowl' event was represented as a charitable flag football tournament to raise funds for the family of Sergeant Ron Helus. An event that would honor Ron’s memory and provide support to his wife Karen and son Jordan,” Sheriff Bill Ayub told the local news outlet in a statement.

“As the event began to materialize, we became concerned with the behavior of some of the organizers of the event. Although I believe the organizers had good intentions, the event was moving in a direction we no longer felt comfortable supporting,” he said.

Fox 11 noted that the guest list for the event had been bipartisan and included California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) public safety liaison.

The police had a ceremony in May to honor their fallen colleague.

Scott Baio, Chachi from "Happy Days"? Surprised

I had no idea he'd gone into politics.

I wish actors would just stick to acting.

The press release states that the event was being organized by an out of state group, but the group "seemed to become more focused on political agendas, and less and less so on the victims and their families." The sheriff's office pulled out of the event for that reason.

Again, according to the sheriff's department, "the event organizers have now launched a calculated and vicious social media campaign ...." Helus' son expressed his disappointment that the organizers engaged in "slander" against the VCSO because it no longer wished to participate in an event that it viewed as political. ("As the event has grown in notoriety, the agenda of the event seemed to be changing from honoring the fallen to becoming a political platform to speak and express personal views. The VCSO has no issue with freedom of speech coming from any political affiliation, but the purpose of the event was not to discuss politics on a stage that the death of 12 people created." Again, from Jordan Helus.

If I have to choose who to believe, I'll take Helus's wife and son.

I just got po'ed when he spouted off about Erin Moran dying of a heroin overdose; she died of cancer.

Otherwise, he has as much right to a political position as anyone else. I just don't know why anyone would particularly care what he has to say.

They do.

Politicians are just actors who stay in character.

Not particularly.

But you also had Sonny Bono, Clint Eastwood, Al Franken, Fred Grandy, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and probably a lot more. And, to some extent, Trump. So its not uncommon.
