Like clockwork, celebrities are once again threatening to leave America. This time, it’s if Donald Trump wins the Presidency. I say, good riddance. Don’t let the big door of freedom and prosperity hit you in the butt on the way out.
Nevertheless, let’s amuse ourselves for a moment with a quick peek at some of their crazy proclamations:
1) Samuel L. Jackson: On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jackson warned, “If that motherf—ker becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa.” Shamefully, this is the same racially militant man who also admitted that he “really wanted” the San Bernardino terrorists to be white.
2) George Lopez: “There’s enough racists in this country for him to get elected,” Lopez propagandized to TMZ. “If he wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration. We’ll all go back.” Luckily, we’ve all caught on to this overused Alinsky-style tactic of calling people “racists,” a tactic used by real racists to deflect attention and control desired outcomes. Perhaps Lopez should instead chastise all those individuals, like Samuel L. Jackson, who admitted to voting for President Obama because of the color of his skin.
3) Cher: Naturally, using complete capitalization, Cher Tweeted, “If he were to be elected, I’m moving to Jupiter.” Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if after she gets there she stars in her own reality show—a remake of Schoolhouse Rock’s “Interplanet Janet.”
4) Al Sharpton: During a recent Center for American Progress event Sharpton announced, “I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins. Only because he’d probably have me deported anyhow.” Poor Al. Always paranoid that someone is out to get him. I guess that’s what happens when you sell too much snake oil.
5) Raven-Symoné: “My confession for this election is if any Republican gets nominated, I’m going to move to Canada with my entire family,” Raven-Symoné revealed to her co-hosts on The View. Did you notice her intolerance toward “any” Republican? Maybe she should relocate someplace where there are more like-minded people. Say, like … North Korea?
6) Jennifer Lawrence: Then there’s the apocalyptic Lawrence, last year’s highest paid actress, who apparently sees no way out. “If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world,” she told Vogue Magazine. Of course, she can always hitch a ride with Cher to Jupiter.
Do you ever scratch your head and wonder why these self-absorbed, ungrateful elites still hang around? Most don’t even like America. Just look at how they act at their swanky award ceremonies. Instead of acknowledging that all their opportunities and good fortunes, not to mention exorbitant lifestyles, were all made possible by the goodness of this great nation, they stand on their political soapboxes and put down America. Some have also had the audacity to play the victim card.
If America is so horrible, why stay? Cher, Alec Baldwin, and scores of others had once threaten to leave if George W. Bush was elected president. But they’re still here living high on the hog.
Truth is, many citizens believe the country would be in better shape without the likes of these people and their Hollywood values. After all, they tend to be big government busybodies—and arrogant hypocrites at that. For example, many have gone out of their way to support anti-gun policies that deny us the right to defend ourselves and our families. Meanwhile, they parade around with all the armed security they want. Then there’s the whole pro-open borders thing. Celebrities love to appear worldly and culturally sensitive, even though they lack understanding in both, especially with regards to how and why America became the beacon of hope to millions.
All this is precisely why Trump could win the Presidency. Remember, our nation’s current political state is not merely an endorsement of Trump, but the manifest realities of our democratic process in revolt. Americans are fed up with being put down, lied to, and apologized for by Hollywood and the DC establishment. Many find Trump an attractive alternative to today’s career politician. He speaks with refreshing non-politically correct straight talk. The fact of the matter is that celebrities have no one to blame but themselves for the rise of Trump.
As for me, the possibility of Trump winning is not what I find most intriguing, but rather how many celebrities may finally get what they deserve, and all by the fruits of their own labor.
