Hollywood Liberals To Offer Alternative State of the Union

This is what liberals are allowing to go forward as the face of their opposition to Trump. Yikes.

On Friday I wrote about how the same Democrat left that lost middle America with their race-baiting, sexual-anarchist, identity politics-driven agenda, and thus the 2016 presidential election, was doing themselves no favors heading into the midterm elections.

Despite a president that often times just can’t stop saying and tweeting unnecessarily provocative, ignorant, or alienating things, the Democrats have become so unhinged at the mere mention of his name that they repeatedly overreact and humiliate themselves to the point that they actually draw attention away from Trump’s antics.

As if that weren’t bad enough, they believe that the way to reclaiming middle America’s heart is to obstruct and oppose everything the President and his party advocate – even when that includes a massive tax overhaul that is already exceedingly popular with the country, and as bonuses and raises from employers continue to be announced, is only likely to grow in approval. The tax cuts passed without a single Democrat vote. And Democrat leaders continue to mock them, even as Americans embrace them.

And now, almost as if they are operating from a textbook called, “How to Blow the Historical Advantage the Party Out of Power Enjoys in Midterm Elections,” comes this bit of news:

A slew of Hollywood elites — all of them members of the the "One Percent" Club — will hold their own “People’s State of the Union” the night before President Donald Trump delivers his first address to a join session of Congress.

Slated to perform, er, attend, the Manhattan event are filmmaker Michael Moore, actors Mark Ruffalo, Alyssa Milano, Rosie Perez and Whoopi Goldberg. Comedian Wanda Sykes and actress Kathy Najimy are also scheduled to speak, and singer Andra Day and rapper Common will perform.

Yes, because if there’s one thing that’s going to woo the masses, it’s getting more Hollywood liberals to share their politics with us. What I can’t get over is that they actually think this is going to help them.

Don’t misunderstand, this isn’t suggesting that actors, performers, and Hollywood elites don’t have a right to their own political viewpoints. This is about strategy. And the strategist who thought the best way to win over the working class included putting wealthy rappers, actors, and entertainers from Hollywood in front of the microphones to pretend like they speak for middle America is utterly clueless.

For his part, disgraced hypocrite filmmaker Michael Moore called Trump a “malignant narcissist and an active sociopath,” who was a “singular threat to humanity.” Meanwhile, actor Mark Ruffalo, the man who infamously praised his own mother for illegally aborting his sibling (if that doesn't scream "mainstream," I don't know what does), will pretend to be a voice for the masses:

"In essence, it's a better reflection of our state of the union based on a more populist point of view, based on the people’s point of view," Ruffalo told People magazine. "I think it’s important because we have a president who has a difficult time with the truth, who has a radical, divisive agenda, and spends an enormous amount of time focusing on the negative and hopelessness and despair.”

Because there's nothing radical or divisive about Hollywood's agenda. And it's not as though Ruffalo and his cohorts spend an enormous amount of time focusing on the negative and hopelessness and despair surrounding Trump. Speaking of his cohorts, let's not forget Alyssa Milano is involved in this spectacle. We will just have to wait to see if she will still be sporting the cornrow hairstyle she recently dawned, earning social justice demerits for culturally appropriating blackness by fellow members of the #Resistance.

This is what liberals are allowing to go forward as the face of their opposition to Trump. It’s what they are allowing to be marketed as their “alternative” voice in an election year. You can that a lot of things, but smart isn’t one of them.

Are Hollywood elites out of touch with America? Perhaps so, but so is Mr. Heck. The tax bill is not 'exceedingly popular' but probably still under water according to recent polls, even if it is not as far under water as it was when it was passed. And saying the liberals are 'allowing' this event to happen is a ridiculous statement, assuming all liberals are in some kind of cabal sharing secrets constantly and all on the same page. Criticize those who are putting on this event, fine. Tarring all democrats and liberals with the results, not fine for anyone who wants to be fair and truthful. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/16/business/economy/tax-economy-survey.html

So let me get this straight. An Industry that trades in the make-believe, Fantasy, is going to give to We, the People a State of the Union address. Excuse me fora minute as I step away from the computer and have a very large belly laugh. I am back, but find that it is difficult to control myself from outburst loud laughter. Mr. Raffolo remarks that the President has "a difficult time with the truth". Where in Hollywood do actors, producers writers and directors deal with the "truth". They craft is to pretend that fantasy is the "truth". Excuse me again, I just can't control myself.

I have to agree with FastFrankie--another Saturday Night Live comedy routine. Their stupidity knows no bounds. I also agree in that their antics does draw attention away from Trump's shortcomings. I do lean to the Right, but I have to admit that sometimes Trump can be his own worst enemy. As a member of Judicial Watch, I have to shake my head as to why there can't be more transparency in his administration as well as shutting down some avenues of harassment that is within his power to do so.
