It’s hilarious when wealthy, privileged members of Hollywood rail against the system that made them rich. So when director Michael Moore preaches about how capitalism is evil, it’s important to remember that he is worth $50 million, according to Celebrity NetWorth
From carefully planned interviews to actual protests, Hollywood is doing its very best to thwart President Trump’s State of the Union speech.
Wealthy, over-privileged actors and actresses have decided to give what they think is a more accurate depiction of the state of the union. Mark Ruffalo, organizing a “star-studded counter-event”, told People Magazine that his protest would be “a better reflection of our state of the union based on a more populist point of view, based on the people’s point of view.”
Los Angeles Times theatre critic Charles McNulty brought all the drama to assessing how the theater, "the most public-minded of the arts," would deal with the crisis of Donald Trump's election. The headline was "How theater should respond to a democracy in meltdown." We are in a "crisis" at the end of 2017, which means we have liberals who still equate democracy with Democratic victories.
Well, this is a shame. A battle between accused rapist Harvey Weinstein and far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has (at least for the moment) derailed the sequel to Fahrenheit 9/11. The liberal Moore is completing Fahrenheit 11/9. Whereas the first movie bashed George W. Bush and pushed conspiracy nutty theories, the second film will go after Donald Trump. Except... it’s stuck in limbo.
On HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher November 10, the liberal anti-Christian talk show host laid into the Ten Commandments while talking about Alabama’s Roy Moore, with some particularly ignorant comments on what exactly the commandments prohibit. Asking his “Irish Catholic” guests, filmmaker Michael Moore and MSNBC host Chris Matthews about the Moore situation, he stupidly asked why “their” law didn’t prohibit the truly important things like racism, genocide and rape.
Celebrities love being affirmed and validated. So while Hollywood is being rocked with its own sex abuse scandals around its brightest stars, plenty of has-beens are celebrating Manafort’s indictment. All of Hillary’s biggest celebrity supporters, acting as circling sharks since November 9, 2016, spent October 30 on Twitter wildly celebrating the indictment of a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump. Singer Cher stated today: “WHY DO ALL “TRUMP” ROADS LEAD TO RUSSIA.”
One of the strongest reactions to the killing of 59 people and the wounding of more than 500 others attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in the Las Vegas strip on Sunday by gunman Stephen Paddock came from singer-actress Nancy Sinatra, who posted several harsh posts on the Twitter website casting much of the blame on members of the National Rifle Association.
In the wake of the horrific tragedy in Las Vegas, celebrities have decided to use death as a stump for their activism. And of course, who better to lead the way than professional protester Michael Moore.
Billie Joe Armstrong, frontman for the rock group Green Day, blasted Donald Trump as a “batsh*t crazy” fascist that reminded him of dead Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. On Thursday, Armstrong joined fellow liberal Michael Moore – at the filmmaker’s one-man Broadway show – and launched into a stream of anti-Trump invective.
One has to wonder: Are some celebrities promoting communism in their anti-Trump rants? According to Jim Carrey, the hurricanes and politics are linked, “Trump is a fucking imbecile,” and Americans are going to “struggle” like “people did under the czar,” which, unless Carrey doesn’t know, means that his idea of “progress” is the tyrannical communism brought to Russia by Stalin.
Vulture would have us believe that being Michael Moore a “thankless task.” But what’s so tough about being a wealthy socialist who sold his lake house for $5.2 million in 2015? How hard is it doing agitprop for communist Cuba’s health system, or making movie after intellectually bankrupt movie about how lousy America is? Certainly his daily grooming habits can’t be what you’d call oppressive.
Well, Hollywood celebrities and other elite liberals reacted about like you’d expect to the Trump administration’s decision to rescind Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. The overwhelming accusations of racism and hatred levied by Hollywood’s loudest (and most privileged) in the past two or three days have glossed over the context of the DACA policy, the decision to overturn it, and the potential consequences (which are unknown at this point).
