HOLLYWOOD'S PACT WITH THE DEVIL: WHY IS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY SUCH A TROUGH FOR THE HOLLYWOOD ELITE? 

(In response to today’s post by Thomas Galvin of The Galvin Opinion)

By Albert Greenland, guest blogger for The Galvin Opinion

It is not like those self-indulgent, sophomoric folks have read Marx and Engels

Hollywood is the only American Royalty, and A-List Actors and Actresses are the kings and queens. Why then do they permit themselves to be enslaved by the Democratic Party? It is not like those self-indulgent, sophomoric folks have read Marx and Engels. Really, living in their Malibu gated communities or diving off yachts into the Mediterranean, what do they know about socialism or about Western liberalism? The best Democrats like Sarah Jessica Parker (known to really have a thing for Mr. Big) and Chevy Chase (known for starring in a movie with a wily, show-stealing Republican groundhog that looks like Punxsutawney Phil) can do is to offer the same old liberal clichés they are fed by the media and taunt Republicans with the brand of wit or low humor characteristic of locker room banter. There are only a handful of actors who really know anything about politics, but why do the others show up en masse at Democratic Party events? What does Ashton Kutcher care about John Edwards?


What does Ashton Kutcher care about John Edwards?

Politics is for Hollywood actors--like everything else in the rest of their lives--another opportunity to "show up at the cool party" and do calisthenics to fit in. Members of what Jim Carrey calls “the Colony” are always trying to be seen to get good publicity. For them, life is a constant hope and struggle to be asked to read good scripts to get into better productions. And, all things considered, that is somewhat understandable. But why is it that the Hollywood herd feeds at the trough of the Democratic Party? We all know that it is much easier to fit in with the Democrats than with, i.e., MTV, because the Democrats do not require Botox and plastic surgery, but that can’t be the reason. Why does Hollywood pledge itself, so lopsidedly, to the liberal agenda? The answer is simpler than it would seem.

The real players, the movie producers, the companies which put out the capital to make the films (collectively, “the Script-Givers”), overtly and covertly put up the Democratic feed stations for the herd and ensure that the only “cool party” is the Democratic Party.

It is the Script-Givers who have the most to lose when the Republicans take the reigns of government. It is the conservatives who have standards, the conservatives who abhor the Roman Colosseum mentality of the Script-Givers. Only the conservatives are willing to stand up to Hollywood’s vulgarization of the masses. The Script-Givers, through the celebration of violence or casual sex, are making bundles of money as American culture becomes transmogrified. I bet that Pamela Anderson and Jenna Jameson are more well-known to most Americans than Thomas Jefferson or Abraham Lincoln.


Democrats, however, understand that the content of entertainment is intimately linked with political control. A corrupt population which craves stimulation in the form of gratuitous violence and sex is weak and easily controlled.

That Pop-culture/entertainment is today’s Roman Colosseum is probably lost on the Script-Givers, blinded as they are by money. The Democrats, however, understand that the content of entertainment is intimately linked with political control. A corrupt population which craves stimulation in the form of gratuitous violence and sex is weak and easily controlled. Entertainment junkies are in constant need of their fix. Because entertainment, yes sports as well, eclipses everything, there is no time to sit down and try to figure out what is going on with the world. No time to question the government. No need to wonder why the Federal Government is growing, looking at society like an organism and controlling every facet of the lives of individuals. The pop-culture mentality is akin to slavery, intellectual and moral bankruptcy.

Further, much of Hollywood entertainment is patently anti-religious and anti-Christian, and that is best of all for the liberal elite. Remember, the hallmark of most totalitarian regimes (i.e., the former Soviet Union and Communist China) is the suppression of religion. It is necessary to foment hatred of religion so that the loyalty of people is not swayed away from the government, the Communist Party or the Democratic Party. The Script-Givers probably do not see this, but the Democrats surely do. All the Script-Givers know is that the Democratic Party promotes an agenda under which they will thrive, hawking all the smut on the masses they choose. Therefore the Republicans are relegated by the Script-Givers to the ranks of hypocrites, party-poopers, and even Narcs.


The Democratic Party has asked actors and musicians to mortgage their good names and give up a lot of money and perhaps their souls, really, to protect some of the greatest evils of our time (i.e., abortion).

Yes, it is the Democrats who have wooed the Script-Givers into putting up the feeding troughs, and the Script-Givers who have decided that only Democrats are cool. Look what just happened in New York City (posted by the Galvin Opinion). When would even a fraction of stars come out to support the Republican Party? One or two free-thinkers such as the governor of California, but that is about it. However, one thing is for sure, the only kind of bush that would be fodder for a “cool” Republican speech is a “W” Bush (See Whoopi Goldberg’s statements).

Sadly, what actors and actresses do not realize is that they have made a pact with the devil. The Democratic Party and the Script-Givers have asked them to mortgage their good names and give up a lot of money and perhaps their souls, really, to protect some of the greatest evils of our time (i.e., abortion). Even otherwise talented rock bands such as Pearl Jam (which made abortion its favorite cause) come drink the Democrats’ water. No one seems to get it. For now, unfortunately, the Republican Party is not the “cool place” to be if you want to be seen or to be given a script. If you ask most in the media, it is not cool for anything except when some atavistic, odd, opinionated weirdo with ancient and religious values needs to be plucked, ridiculed or utilized as a bad example. Perhaps, if we pray hard enough, we can change that.

DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS: WHOOPI GOLDBERG & HOLLYWOOD STARS BASH BUSH AT NEW YORK'S RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL TO THE DELIGHT OF KERRY AND 'KID' EDWARDS 

Democrats were shocked, SHOCKED by Dick Cheney but not garbage spewed from Whoopi, Leguizamo & Co. Here are their "jokes."

Hypocrisy and bawdy jokes are all part of the game at Democrat fund raisers

The Demagogue Train keeps rolling along. Once again, Hollywood and liberal elites partied in one of their left-wing bastions, New York, laughed and guffawed at one nasty joke after another directed at President Bush and Republicans. Last night, angry liberals lived up to their pessimistic, negative, demoralizing, hateful reputation as they launched raunchy attacks over and over again to the delight of the candidates and fellow liberals in the audience. Pretty pathetic.

Who's to blame for the Hollywood no-talents who are able to spend thousands of dollars at fundraisers and spew their infantile political drivel? We are. We pay them money every time we go to their clunky movies and buy their forgettable albums.

Whoopi Goldberg delivered an X-rated rant full of sexual innuendoes against President Bush last night at a Radio City gala that raised $7.5 million for the newly minted Democratic ticket of John Kerry and John Edwards. Waving a bottle of wine, she fired off a stream of vulgar sexual wordplays on Bush's name in a riff about female genitalia, and boasted that she'd refused to let Team Kerry clear her material. "I Xeroxed my behind and I folded it up in an envelope and I sent it back with a big kiss mark on because we're Democrats - we're not afraid to laugh," she said. She addressed fresh-faced vice-presidential candidate Edwards as "Kid," and "young Mr. Edwards" and cracked, "He looks like he is about 18." "I'm going to card his ass tomorrow."

Great job, Whoopi. That's going to help make John Edwards sound presidential.


If anyone wondered how a multimillion-dollar stars could denounce Bush as a tool of the rich, actor Paul Newman gave his answer. "Tax cuts for wealthy thugs like me are criminal," Newman said. "I put my tax cut in my sock and buried it away. In November, let's sock it to them."

If Paul Newman thought his tax cut was undeserved, why is it in his sock? Why not give more money to the government if it's such a good steward of his money?


Other celebs also competed to bash Bush. Singer John Mellencamp sang a specially written song that called the president "just another cheap thug" and ridiculed him as the "Texas bambino."

So much for the wholesome days of Jack and Diane from John Cougar, er, John Cougar Mellencamp, er, John Mellencamp. That's authenticity for ya.


Kerry could be seen laughing uproariously during part of Goldberg's tirade - and neither he nor Edwards voiced a single objection to its tone when they spoke to the crowd.

Can't offend the Democrat fat cats. Still gotta pump for liberal dollars in Beverly Hills.


Also on the Bush-bashing team was comedian Chevy Chase, who claimed the president is dumb as "an egg-timer" and said Edwards will make Vice President Dick Cheney look "as bright as a bundt cake" when they debate next fall.

Chevy Chase is rehearsing jokes for his next movie, "National Lampoon's Democratic Convention."


Edwards said it was "a great honor" to be there and insisted, "This campaign will be a celebration of real American values."

Edwards probably wasn't paying attention to Whoopi and Chevey Chase. Then again, does anybody?


Latin comedian John Leguizamo said he refuses to believe there are any Hispanic Republicans, claiming that's "an oxymoron," because "Latins for Republicans - it's like roaches for Raid."

No amount of stereotyping is too much for Racist Democrats. Hey John, I'm a Hispanic Republican. Does that mean I'm never capable of learning English and must depend on Democrat politicians for my livelihood?


Screen legend Paul Newman blasted the Bush tax cuts, saying, "I am a traitor to my class. I think that tax cuts to wealthy thugs like me are borderline criminal - I live very high off the hog."

There he goes again. Newman is still speaking, I think.


Jon Bon Jovi opened the $7.5 million rainmaker by taking a little license with the chorus from George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun" - and a big shot at President Bush. "It's been four years since it was clear," Bon Jovi crooned to roars of approval.

Bon Jovi has to play a former Beatle's song, no one can stand his own music.


Clad in an off-the-shoulder, pinkish sarong-style dress, "Sex and the City" babe Sarah Jessica Parker said she wants a President who will "look after all people and not just the privileged few."

Yes, Sarah Jessica Parker is right. Look at the 5,500 who showed up last night. They are not the privileged few. Wait, they paid $250 to $25,000 a seat!


They gave the Democratic ticket a seven-minute standing ovation and cheered every harsh jibe at Bush and Vice President Cheney in a sharp-tongued evening that contrasted sharply with the upbeat tone the campaign tried to set after picking Edwards.

So much for Edwards positive campaign from the Democratic primaries. Welcome to the Big Show, John Edwards.


And quote of the night...
"BECAUSE of Bush's tax cuts, I saved a million and a half in taxes last year. Does anyone think that's fair?" — Ben Affleck at a John Kerry fund-raiser.

No, Ben, it's fair that you got a tax cut. But, do you think it's fair that you get paid $20 million per movie?


All of the above quotes come from The New York Post and The New York Daily News
Update, July 9: Discussing this bizarre story... Mark Kilmer, James Joyner, Blogs for Bush via Captain's Quarters, Matt Margolis, Michele, Powerline, Pardon my English, Young Curmudgeon, SISU, Daily Pundit, QandO, King of Fools, and Coffeehouse at the End of Days.

Update, July 13: Michelle Malkin has more info on how non-whites are expected to be Democrats. I want to get the t-shirt, that Michelle talks about, "I'm not White, I'm Right."
