Hollywood stars strut and pose, until the money calls
Matt Damon’s recent verbal assault on Sarah Palin left many of his former fans wondering what he and his movie star chums really believe in.
In one breath, Hollywood’s elite decry violence, echo anti-gun rhetoric, and threaten to leave their homeland if left-wing pals lose elections. In the next, they hawk new releases . . . with plots involving guns, violence, murder and mayhem. (To paraphrase Mr. Rogers, “Can you say ‘hypocrite’?”)
Other examples of Hollywood Hypocrisy:
M.A.S.H; Ben Affleck
Pearl Harbor; Reba McIntyre
offered reduced ticket prices in exchange for handguns . . . then starred on Broadway in
Annie Get Your Gun. Julia Roberts
set aside her anti-guns-and-violence “beliefs” for AND
Pelican Brief Michael Collins; Tim Robbins, War of the Worlds . . .
Susan Sarandon, Thelma and Louise . . .
Alec Baldwin, Path to War . . .
The list goes on and on, but you get the drift.
I’m not the only moviegoer who wants to know: Do you Tinseltown types actually believe what you say in support of liberal politician pals? If so, how can you, in good conscience, accept millions to star in films that highlight the very issues you claim are evil. Your participation in such productions is fullcolor proof that your convictions are as transparent as your so-called principles.
So ’fess up, why don’t you, and admit that you’re willing to set aside your ideals if the the payoff increases your income or enhances your stardom. At least then, when once-loyal fans disagree with your politics, we will respect that you know the meaning of the word ‘honor.’
Will I continue watching your movies, even as you talk out of both sides of your mouths? Sure, once they’re free on TV, to ensure none of my hardearned money will fund your blatant hypocrisy.
