Many of you threatened to leave the country if Donald Trump won the Presidency. Well, he won. Good riddance. Don’t let the big door of freedom hit you on the way out!
Oh, you changed your mind? Is it because you love America or you just love yourselves living in a country that helps you maintain your life-style of lavish hypocrisy? Either way, your recent anti-Trump tantrums are tantamount to a slap in the face of every hard working American voter who is struggling to support their family because of liberal policies of the last 8 years.
Luckily for the rest of us, we didn’t have to cut and run. Instead, when the going got tough, we got going. Trump won because his message resonated with millions of Americans, including the forgotten blue state Rust Belters who are now feeling pretty hopeful. They voted for Trump even when elites like you said it wouldn’t matter. But it did! And while you were ballyhooing about running away from home, some of our military heroes were making the ultimate sacrifice‐‐for all of us‐‐so you would still have the right to act like fools.
Incredibly, your blind arrogance has continued to insult voters, like when some of you appeared in a PSA video that specifically targeted electors. Did you really think you could convince electors to overturn the results of our election? America voted. Trump won and Clinton conceded. Period.
Still, just a few weeks later, more of you Hollywood-types appeared in another video, this time, demanding the U.S. Congress to “obstruct” Trump’s incoming administration just because Trump won without a majority of votes. So‐‐what’s your point? America isn’t a simple democracy. That would be like two wolves and a sheep deciding on what to have for dinner. We are a representative republic. If you really want to live under an absolute majority style government, I suggest you move to a country with a more accommodating mob rule, most of which are run by dictators. But hey, what’s wrong with a little wealth confiscation among socialist-minded comrades. At least you and all of your Golden Globe chums, like Meryl Streep, would feel safer, I’m sure, with a genuine state approved press to help hold your leader “to account” and “to call him on the carpet.”
It’s now become clear that your desperation has officially overshadowed even your arrogance, like when you called for mass protests in the days leading up to the Presidential Inauguration. I thought your full-page ad in the New York Times was especially telling: “No! In the Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!”
Oh, please. “Fascist” is just another overused word that you Lefties call everyone you don’t like. In fact, it’s a meaningless cliché like all of your other buzzwords. Ironically, while you call people names like fascists, sexists, and racists, your own actions typify the very practices you claim others are doing. Some of you have openly schmoozed with horrific dictators like Castro and Chavez, and even thought it was fashionably cool to run around town wearing an image of the Marxist firing squad killer Che Guevara. Talk about dangerously mindless. And you want people to jump on your bandwagon to save America?
In light of all your hysterics since the election, may I suggest a wonderfully enlightening book called Liberal Fascism, by Jonah Goldberg. In the book, he succinctly explains that “Progressivism was a sister movement of fascism, and today’s liberalism is the daughter of Progressivism.” In other words, it’s you‐‐the glitterati‐‐who are the real fascists. However, I would also add that lately you’ve been trending more totalitarian. Nothing illustrates this better than your intolerance of the election results and persistence to try and make everyone see it your way come hook or crook.
Hollywood, it’s time for you to wake up, get a grip, and learn something about your true ideological roots. Maybe then, you’ll stop insulting American voters!
