Rapper Cee Lo Green flipping off a crowd and dropping F-bombs at an Obama fundraiser wasn’t about, well, a famous American songwriter carpet bombing an audience with R-rated material at a presidential rally.
Neither was the story of Hollywood legend Robert De Niro blathering about America not ready to go back to the days of a “white” first lady really about the sheer stupidity and insensitivity of such a remark.
And nor was Elle Macpherson’s proud proclamation that she’s an Obama supporter and socialist about the obliviousness of a super model worth an estimated $60 million trashing the very type of economic system that bolstered her into fortune and fame.
The real story is that Hollywood is once again looking to market Obama to us like an iPad 2, just like they successfully did in 2008 when they launched a little-known senator from Chicago into stardom, as I explain in my brand-new book, Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers
“It’s not going to be as sexy” as 2008, Obama warned the glitterati recently. “If things are just smooth the whole way through, not only is it a pretty dull movie, but it doesn’t reflect our experience,” he added as he motivated his Tinseltown army to get excited about him one last time.
And they will. The same Hollywood loons who got Obama elected will do so again.
That is, unless we muzzle them.
How? Not the way the Left tries to do, by silencing dissent. But by putting their political stances and public statements under the microscope of scrutiny to analyze whether they live by the same policy prescriptions they seek to inflict on America.
Here’s a sampling:
Harrison Ford cut a commercial on YouTube where he got his chest waxed to bring awareness to global warming. Forget for a moment that nobody wants to see an aging Indiana Jones get his hair follicles ripped out by a beauty parlor babe, it turns out that Ford owns seven aircraft and has stated on the record that he “often flies up the coast for a cheeseburger.”
