Thumbs Down Hollywood. Stick To Acting
Hollywood actors are a dime a dozen. In fact, compared to the over 318 million people in the U.S., Hollywood celebrities are just a handful of the population, if even that. So why do they think they are the conscience and spokespeople for America?
Acting is just a job that pays a lot of money. That doesn’t qualify an actor to be an expert on government policy or any other subject for that matter, except acting. It also does not qualify them to be heroes or someone to look up to, either. We have astronauts, policemen and firemen, scientists, inventors and more for that position.
So why do the current celebrities think they can or should sound off about our recent election? And why does anyone care what their opinions are?
I recently saw a news article where Chuck Woolery slams Hollywood over a new anti-Trump ad. Mr. Woolery asked why anyone would take advice from people who “pretend to be other people for a living.” Good point.
The problem is a lot of people are just sheep following whoever the popular celebrity is at the moment. Why? Because they think by hanging on to the popular celebrity’s every word or deed somehow makes them cool or popular, too.
We’ve become a nation that can’t think for ourselves. And we won’t even listen to the other side anymore. I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard people say they won’t watch the “terrible” Fox News. Why? Because celebrities and other left wing groups say not to. How can you have a balanced opinion unless you take in all facts from both sides? It’s like being in a cult where they tell their members not to read anything other than their literature. Why? Because they’re afraid the members might get their eyes opened and see there is more to the story.
Last night the Golden Globe Awards was on television. I didn’t watch it. First, I didn’t know it was on. Second, I didn’t know what it was. When I heard about it I thought it had something to do with boxing. I guess I was thinking of the Golden Glove Awards? Is that a thing? Anyway, some actress named Meryl Streep used her time slot to put down our President Elect Donald Trump. Of course, most of her fellow actors in the audience thought it was great, as did I’m sure, the sheep that watched it.
According to internet sources her rant not only put down sports but raved how great Hollywood is compared to Mr. Trump’s supposed actions (although she didn’t mention him by name from what I read).
I read the article Piers Morgan wrote for the Daily Mail about last nights rant by Streep. As liberal as Piers Morgan is even he saw the hypocrisy in her statements. Hollywood makes millions selling movies about murder, rape, violence. Yet Streep wanted everyone to hate Mr. Trump because of some misconceived ideas about him. It’s like the pot calling the kettle black.
I came across a Facebook post that pretty much says it all:
“Dear Hollywood celebrities,
You exist for my entertainment. Some of you are great eye candy. Some of you can deliver a line with such conviction that you bring tears to my eyes. Some of you can scare the crap out of me. Others make me laugh. But you all have one thing in common, you only have a place in my world to entertain me. That’s it. You make your living pretending to be someone else. Playing dress up like a 6 year old. You live in a make-believe world in front of a camera. And often when you are away from one too. Your entire existence depends on my patronage. I’ll crank the organ grinder; you dance. I don’t really care where you stand on issues. Honestly, your stance matters far less to me than that of my neighbor. You see, you aren’t real. I turn off my TV or shut down my computer and you cease to exist in my world. Once I am done with you, I can put you back in your little box until I want you to entertain me again. I don’t care that you don’t like Mr. Trump. But I bet you looked cute saying it. Get back into your bubble. I’ll let you know when I’m in the mood for something blue and shiny. And I’m also supposed to care that you will leave this great country if Trump becomes president? Ha. Please don’t forget to close the door behind you. We’d like to reserve your seat for someone who loves this country and really wants to be here. Make me laugh, or cry. Scare me. But realize that the only words of yours that matter are scripted. I might agree with some of you from time to time, but it doesn’t matter. In my world, you exist solely for my entertainment. ___written by unknown”
