The death of George Floyd and subsequent calls for racial justice are now taking a backseat to the violent revolution of the hard left, with agitators brazenly destroying American cities.
Rational Americans are struck by the bold attacks on police and any citizens who may find themselves in the sights of rioters, but a closer look may reveal why this element is so carefree in their actions.
Aside from having much of the media firmly in their corner, and the American Civil Liberties Union and the Southern Poverty Law Center offering free legal services, a number of celebrities have offered large sums of money to bail protesters out of jail, should they be arrested.
Celebrities like Justine Timberlake, who tweeted: “Please join me in supporting the Minneapolis protestors by donating to the @mnfreedomfund. The freedom fund is combatting the harms of incarceration by paying bail for low income individuals who cannot otherwise afford.

With the riots following the age-old script, those being hurt the most are those who live in the communities being destroyed.
Desperately needed jobs and small businesses are being lost and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, responded to Timberlake’s tweet to remind the entertainer of this.
The senator also pointed out that many of those being arrested are Antifa domestic terrorists, who are more often than not disgruntled white, middle class youth living a comfortable life.
“Justin, how about giving your millions to a fund to help the African-American and Hispanic small businesses that are being burned & looted, rather than a fund to bail out the spoiled (often white) ANTIFA terrorists who are destroying minority communities?” Cruz tweeted.

Surely, Timberlake would respond to a U.S. senator engaging him, right? Right?
Not as of yet.
A video that made the rounds online supports Cruz’s position, as a black man is seen reduced to tears, crying over the loss of his business to rioters.
“I worked so hard to get here,” he said, tears streaming down his face. “So hard.”
Trump-hating liberal model Chrissy Teigen offered $200,000 to bail out protesters across the country, doubling her original offer, and there are a slew of liberal lawyers offering pro bono services too.

So what concerns should rioters have over extreme actions being seen all across this country, to include unconscionable violence?
Here’s a sampling of responses to Cruz’s response from Twitter:

Please join me in no longer supporting the celebrities and politicians that are bailing out the criminals rioting and destroying our communities. No longer support their movies, music, products and places they perform.

Virtue signaling is not real compassion and it really exposes itself in the worst of times. This disabled woman watched every store she could get to get destroyed. https://t.co/dX98xdUjg5

How do the celebrities not realize that the peaceful protesters aren’t the one getting put in cuffs? Clueless
