Kari Donovan| You most likely know Ellen Degeneres as the bubbly, fun, openly gay, host of the Ellen show. Well, in a one month period of time Ellen went from boldly proclaiming her status as a strong ally for Black Lives Matter, saying she wanted to learn and educate others about Black Lives Matter and how to understand the injustice toward Black people and defunding the Police … to her people notifing the police, and the ‘Sheriff’s detectives and forensics technicians … conducting an extensive and on-going investigation’ to help Ellen after her upscale home saw expensive items stolen from her property.
Events like this make people like me skeptical of just how honest these filthy rich celebrities, with their own private security, and connections with the cops where they are willing to conduct ‘extensive’ investigations on their behalf, are when they talk about wanting to ‘defend the police.’ Something tells me they are full of crap and just virtue signaling to try and look ‘woke.’
It seems pretty obvious that Ellen and/or her staff realize the value of the police and are likely very thankful for their help trying to recovering her property.
“As a White person, I do not always know what to say, we have to admit there is a lot we don’t know about Black people’s lives and about a Black person’s experience. And there is a horrible injustice toward Black people.” DeGeneres said June 4 in a video for her social media, when she committed to being an ally to the Black Lives Matter, a Marxist organization, of which some members seek to ‘defund the police.’
In the video, DeGeneres said, ” I want to be an ally fighting for a change. I think White people need to sit in our discomfort. We have to learn how to do better. I want to help educate others.” Degeneres’s video was apparently meant to direct people how to be an ally for Black Lives Matter and stand up and speak boldly in support of BLM.

Her tune changed on July 4th, just one month later when the Hollywood star needed help. That is when DeGeneres, or her team, called the police, reported a crime, and then accepted the help from the police as they carried out their duties to help her, by investigating her situation to see if they could reclaim her belongings.
“The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the Montecito home of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia deRossi was burglarized on July 4, 2020. The residence appears to have been targeted due to the victim’s celebrity status. The exact description of the items that were taken is not available for release, but they are described as high-value jewelry and watches. Sheriff’s detectives and forensics technicians have been conducting an extensive and on-going investigation.
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is in contact with other law enforcement agencies to determine if this is related to additional recent celebrity home burglaries.
