Alright, Samuel L. Jackson: Go ahead, take off for South Africa.
Miley Cyrus: Canada awaits you, along with Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Madonna, and hundreds of your fellow pampered Hollywood pals who took the “Never Trump!” pledge.
George Stephanopoulos and Barbra Streisand: You can exit for Australia, as you promised. Jon Stewart and Cher: Your billionaire chum (and fellow Hillary supporter) Elon Musk may have room aboard a Space X rocket so you can keep your word to escape the planet if The Donald won the White House.
Some of the most hateful, vicious, and vulgar rhetoric of the just-closed election cycle came from Hollywood’s spoiled celebrities and degenerate divas who are still “all in” for Hillary and underscored their commitment by vowing to leave the United States if Donald Trump were elected president. But it looks as if many of them are now balking at making good on their bravado.
The Hill, the Washington, D.C.-based newspaper and news website that focuses on politics from Capitol Hill, reported the day after Trump’s election victory on “Celebs who said they’d leave country if Trump won.”
Over the past year, many additional stories (see here, here, and here) have catalogued the banal utterances of the self-important prima donnas of Tinseltown regarding the Clinton-Trump presidential contest.
Naturally, many of them displayed their commitment to “tolerance” by liberally lacing their vitriol with F-bombs and other expressions of profanity. Some, like “comedian” George Lopez, have escalated their opposition to a level that would be decried as advocating murder, if the roles were reversed. Lopez, for instance, tweeted an image that shows Mexican drug cartel kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán holding the severed head of Donald Trump. The gruesome image is accompanied by Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. Not exactly the quintessence of civility and "tolerance," eh?
As nasty as Lopez’s tweet was, it was mild compared to the murderous political rant of the Clintons’ longtime Hollywood hatchet man Alec Baldwin. During President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, Baldwin declared:
If we were living in another country, what we, all of us together, would [sic] go down to Washington and stone [Republican Congressman] Henry Hyde to death, stone him to death, stone him to death! Then we would go to their house and we’d kill the family, kill the children.
Apparently he realizes that he may have gone a little over the top with his infamous call for communist-style mass murder of political opposition; regular Americans are not as given to intolerance and wanton slaughter as Baldwin and his fellow Leninist/Maoist Hollywood cadres. So, over the past year, the actor has dialed down the rhetoric, stoning Trump metaphorically, rather than literally, by regularly impersonating and satirizing the Republican contender (now president-elect) on Saturday Night Live.
Here are excerpts from the Hollywood elite taken from The Hill’s report cited above:
Samuel L. Jackson slammed Trump for running a “hate”-filled campaign and said he would move to South Africa if he wins. “If that mother****** becomes president, I’m moving my black *** to South Africa,” the movie star quipped to Jimmy Kimmel….
Neve Campbell, an actress on the political drama “House of Cards,” vowed to move back home to Canada, while “Orange is the New Black” actress Natasha Lyonne said she would hightail it to a mental hospital.
Cher tweeted this summer that if Trump gets elected, “I’m moving to Jupiter.”… Barbara Streisand, a vocal Clinton supporter, told [Australia’s] “60 Minutes” that “I’m either coming to your country if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”…
Former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart said he would consider “getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers” if the real estate mogul wins.
Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of the “The View”, said on an episode of the talk show earlier this year that if the country elects Trump, “maybe it’s time for me to move, you know. I can afford to go.”…
Hispanic comedian George Lopez said Trump “won’t have to worry about immigration” if he takes the White House because “we’ll all go back."
As we have reported (Hillary’s Mad Dash for Cash: Billionaire Elites and Pampered Celebs), Hillary Clinton’s claim to be fighting for working people and the middle class against Wall Street and the “one percent” is so transparently fraudulent, that only the invincibly self-deluded could believe she is not totally a craven servitor of the uber-wealthy she pretends to oppose. We have noted in previous stories Clinton’s close ties to, and huge donations/payments from Goldman Sachs, CitiGroup, Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Google/Alphabet CEO Eric Schmidt, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), George Soros and sons, Roger Altman and Evercore Partners, and a bevy of additional Wall Street titans. These are the Too-Big-To-Fail/Too-Big-To-Jail banksters and corporatists she has reliably voted to bail out — with the taxpayers’ money. Moreover, Lady Rodham Clinton was clearly the choice of the Bilderberg Group, the ne plus ultra cabal of secretive, super-rich, super-powerful globalists who aspire to rule the world. Many of these mega-movers and shakers prefer to stay in the shadows, allowing their less-wealthy, but better-known, narcissists in the entertainment industry to hog the limelight. As we noted:
After scooping up millions at Martha’s Vineyard, Team Hillary set off for the Golden State, which has always proven to be a huge cash cow for the Clintons. The corporate limousine liberals and pampered celebrities of Beverly Hills, Hollywood, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs just love Hillary. A report today on CNN, “Hillary Clinton's California swing yields $19 million in 72 hours,” provides details on the Big Money events at the homes of Hollywood moguls, tech titans, movie mega-stars, and sports idols.
“Among those chipping in for this latest round of Clinton pay-to-play,” our report continued, “were Bob Iger, the CEO of The Walt Disney Company; Jeffrey Katzenberg, the CEO of DreamWorks Animation; singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake; Hall of Fame basketball star Magic Johnson; investor/film producer Haim Saban; Apple CEO Tim Cook; former HP CEO Meg Whitman; and actors Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Tobey Maguire. Other leftwing Hollywood celeb activists who prominently support Hillary include George Clooney, Lady Gaga, Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bill Maher, and Katy Perry.”
To the East Coast-West Coast privileged plutocrats who populate the elite circles of power, most of America is merely “flyover country,” and God-fearing, Christian, middle-class Americans are the enemy standing in the way of their “transformational” agenda: LBGTQ “rights,” gay “marriage,” gun control, unrestricted abortion, environmental regulations, open borders, ObamaCare, nanny-state socialism, Soviet-style political correctness, etc. Hence their slavish devotion to Hillary Clinton and their visceral and vehement hatred of Donald Trump.
For his part, a triumphant Trump has offered an olive branch to his bitter opponents. “Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division,” he told cheering supporters Wednesday morning, after Clinton had conceded the race. “To all Republicans and Democrats and Independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people. It’s time. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans.”
“We will seek common ground, not hostility. Partnership, not conflict,” Trump said. Maybe some of the Hollywood brat pack will respond with commensurate grace, proving that their appeals for tolerance and “unity in diversity” are not mere PC claptrap. But don’t hold your breath. However, if they find they simply cannot cope with the harsh reality of a Hillary-free inauguration and insist on returning to their Stalinist militancy, perhaps they should be reminded of their erstwhile vows to leave. There are many, no doubt, who will happily help them pack their bags, and then wave “bye-bye” to them as they sail off, fly off, or blast off to the distant shores and distant planets — where they, perhaps, will find the utopian bliss they seek.
