Hollywood v. Ron Paul

Written by 

Ron PaulHollywood’s depravity continues apace, this time with the Constitution's most famous champion in its crosshairs. In Sasha Baron Cohen’s new film Bruno, Cohen (who plays an out-of-work “gay” Austrian talk-show host) pulls down his pants during an interview with Congressman Ron Paul.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow explains that “Bruno tries very unsuccessfully — I have to say — very unsuccessfully, to seduce Dr. Paul.” Dr. Paul was the model of a perfect Christian gentleman throughout the thoroughly disgusting scene (caution: offensive content), but the film serves as a reminder of the crass nature of the “entertainment” Hollywood is serving out these days.  

Cohen has made a rather prosperous career out of being lewd and crude. In his last film, Borat, Cohen played a crass Kazakhstani who comes to America to seek his fortune and seduce women. He also was lowered down from the ceiling bare-bottomed at the most recent MTV movie awards.

Dr. Paul explained in an interview with radio talk show host Curtis Sliwa that the entire "interview" was a fraud:

I was expecting an interview on Austrian economics. So that didn’t turn out that way. By the time he started pulling his pants down I thought, “What in thunder is going on in here?” I ran out of the room [and said] “this interview has ended.” I think that when this all gets out, I’m probably going to have to apologize to my supporters because I think most of them are going to [ask] “Why in the world didn’t I didn’t just sock this guy in the nose?”

Dr. Paul, however, has no need to apologize. Only the lewd-and-crude actors and Hollywood studios who put out this trash need to apologize.
