Anti-Trump SAG Awards: We Want An Empathetic Society And We'll Punch You In The Face If You're Against Us

Well, the Screen Actors Guild had their awards Sunday night and it was fitted with the usual anti-Trump drivel. The Hollywood elite simply cannot get over the fact that old, sick Hillary Clinton will never be president of the United States. It was a time to vent—and for the cast of Stranger Things, who won best ensemble, well—they wanted a more understanding and empathic society. But if you’re against that, they’ll punch you in the face. Actor David Harbour, who plays the sheriff in the sci-fi series, delivered the remarks (via NewsBusters):

And I would like to say that in light of all that's going on in the world today, it's difficult to celebrate the already celebrated "Stranger Things." But this award from you who take your craft seriously and earnestly believe like me that great acting can change the world, is a call to arms from our fellow craftsmen and women to go deeper and through our art battle against fear, self-centeredness, exclusivity of our predominantly narcissistic culture and through our craft to cultivate a more empathetic and understanding society by revealing intimate truths that serve as a forceful reminder to folks that when they feel broken and afraid and tired, they are not alone.

We are united and that we are all human beings and we are all together on this horrible, painful, joyous, exciting and mysterious ride that is being alive. As we act and the continuing narrative of "Stranger Things," we 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies. We will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no hope. We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters, and when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and casual violence of certain individuals and institutions. We will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face when they seek to destroy the [inaudible] and the disenfranchised and the marginalized. And we will do it all with soul, with heart, and with joy. We thank you for this responsibility. Thank you.

Comedian Sarah Silverman took it three miles further, advocating a military coup to usurp President Trump. It’s just sad and pathetic; especially when she says “once the military” is with them. There is no universe in which the U.S. military would support or join the progressive left on anything, even on a beer run.
