The good news is that there's a simple way to start tilting the entertainment industry back towards the middle. When movie stars trash you and the people you believe in, blog it, facebook it and tweet it not just when it happens, but when their next movie or album comes out. Don't buy their album. Don't go see their movie in the theater and most importantly, LET PEOPLE KNOW WHY you're not giving them your money. These celebrities and the big money behind them pay great attention to anything and everything that's said about them. They also assume that each person speaking up represents the opinion of thousands of other people. So, in their mind, your tweet, blog post or Facebook graphic matters, especially if other people seem to agree with what's being said.
Will that change the opinion of these celebrities? No, but if they believe it will cost them hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars to trash conservative Republicans, they will start to think twice before opening their mouths. Keep that in mind as you read these quotes.
1) "First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama." -- Jamie Foxx
2) "(The Tea Party's) stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we can to get this black man outta here.' ...It is a racist thing....(that) just shows the weak, dark, underside of America. We’re supposed to be better than that." -- Morgan Freeman
