Hollywood celebrities really lost their minds this past election, soapboxing even more than usual. When it comes to politics, these limousine liberals are grossly out of touch. But that doesn’t stop them from coming out in droves to tell Americans how to vote.
They don’t seem to comprehend or care, that calling one candidate a Nazi, a KKK supporter, etc., is also marginalizing and alienating the millions of folks who support that candidate.
Intentionally offending millions of potential customers, in any business, is insane.
Turns out Mark Wahlberg agrees with us. Wahlberg explained in a recent interview why actors should stay out of politics and stick with acting. He also says his new movie Patriots Day will remind people how special and great America’s people, police, and military members truly are.
From Breitbart :
“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t [talk about politics], Wahlberg told Task & Purpose, a news and analysis outlet geared toward American service veterans.
During a press event for his upcoming thriller Patriots Day, about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Wahlberg was asked about the seemingly endless number of celebrities who bashed President-elect Donald Trump before the election.
“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway,” the actor told the outlet. “They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills.”
“A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble,” says Wahlberg, who has acting credits that date back to the early 90’s and has produced and starred in some of the most successful TV shows and blockbusters of the last to decades.
“They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family,” he said. “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.”
“I definitely think the film is going to bring people together,” Wahlberg said. “It will give people an added boost and a reminder of what a great country we do have and how amazing people are. People really dedicated their lives to serving our country and our communities, and we need to honor that. The overall purpose of police and military is protect us. It’s an amazing thing, and every chance I get I want to thank them for their service.”
Mark Wahlberg…an actor that can have our theater bucks.
Americans have had enough of it. The general public doesn’t give a rip about what the Hollywood celebs think. When we pay our hard-earned money to be entertained, that’s all we want, a few moments out of time—not a lecture on the entertainer’s politics.
If you make $10 million a movie, have homes all over the planet and probably never even finished high school, how can you possibly be in a position to say Obamacare is great for the rest of us? You don’t have to pay rising premiums for inadequate coverage.
If you don’t like the USA, please leave and take your comrades Alec Baldwin, Cher, Madonna, Rosie, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, Mark Ruffalo, Sean Penn, Robert De Niro, Barbra Streisand, Matt Damon, Oprah, Colin Kaepernick, and a whole lot of rich losers with you. The U.S. has an open-door policy that swings both ways. Leave the rest of us alone to rebuild our nation as it was intended by our forefathers.
Patriots Day was directed by Peter Berg and stars Melissa Benoist, Mark Wahlberg, and Michelle Monaghan and hits theaters on January 17.
