Holy Moly! A celebutard actually said something I agree with!
A lot of celebrities do, and shouldn’t.
A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family. You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway. They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills.
Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.
Oh my God, Mark Wahlberg gets it!
Rewind a bit.
The election was quite a thing this year — so much butthurt, so many people lost their minds.
On my birthday, I watch two people who have been friends for 10 years come to blows over goddamned politics. Seriously. It was in a bathroom and wine glasses were smashed against faces. The two females, obviously drunk, had to be pulled off each other.
Lucky the police weren’t called.
They blocked each other on Facebook, but being friends with them both, I can see all their thinly veiled passive aggressive meme sharing — oh, sometimes it’s better to separate from toxic people… and shit like that.Knowing both these girls, neither is toxic. They both have their own issues and both could probably use some professional help and maybe an SSRI.
And all that…
But back to Marky-Mark.
During the election, all the celebutards got involved with politicking and pushed forward the message of “GO VOTE”, with not so subtle hints of who they wanted you to vote for.
So. Don’t vote Trump. Got it! Thanks famous people for making my decision for me. And while you are making my decisions for me, can you pay my rent, power bill, phone, car insurance, car payment, medical bills? Can you put food on my table?
Oh… you won’t.
Another thing that really bothered me during the elections was the name calling and bigotry. As a staunch political atheist who voted third party (aka more hated than the Trump voters) I feel I have a bit of an outside view.
There were a lot of closeted trump voters. And why? Because they didn’t want to be ostracized and harassed by the left.
Bear with me…
I’ve always said that the left loves labels. Especially derogatory ones. And they use them mainly for folks that disagree with them. Like: xenophobic, homophobic, ignorant, racist, misogynist. And these closeted Trump voters didn’t want to subject themselves to those labels and the subsequent vitriol that comes with them. And like the left’s propensity to dish out harassment, their attitude is primarily the reason there were so many closeted Trump voters. They were plainly tired of the left’s bullshit.
I summed up my thoughts on Facebook:
This is the first post I’ve seen that accurately sums up my thoughts on this election. The democrats losing the election is the fault of the democrats themselves. If they hadn’t stood up when it came out that the DNC rigged the primaries and rooted Sanders out, we wouldn’t be in this mess. That’s how they got Clinton who was genuinely unlikable and a horrible human being with way too much baggage. Then, anyone that didn’t agree with your ideology — you belittled and demonized them. Called them “uneducated”, “ignorant”, “brain dead”, “stupid”, “deplorable”, and even erupting in violence over a difference of opinion, etc (all things in which I have PERSONALLY witnessed). You forced your hatred on these people and created this counter revolution of people that were sick of your shit. So not only did people really NOT like Clinton, your candidate, but by you being smug sons of bitches about your ideology and demonizing the opposing side and sending the “on the fences” over to the other side or to a third party, taking precious votes away from your candidate, you caused this. Just saying…
Well, I went off on a tangent…
In sum — the common folk don’t give a shit about your opinion, Hollywood.
