This election proved just how ineffective Hollywood has become. During Obama’s reign of terror, celebrities sat high on the hog, thinking their support of the charismatic leader is what got him into the White House.
Forgetting the discontent Americans had over the Bush administration and Obama’s skillful campaign.
But this election showed that celebrities carry little sway with American voters. We may like their movies and music, but we’re not about to just do whatever they say. Celebrities were shocked on Election Night, not just because Hillary lost, but because they realized they didn’t have the kind of influence over America they thought they had.
Doesn’t matter if your Robert Downy Jr. or Beyonce. If you’re trying to get the most corrupt politician in American history elected, you’re going to lose.
There are a few Hollywood celebs that understand this, though. Just a few.
From Louder With Crowder:
Turns out Mark Wahlberg agrees with us. No, seriously. In a recent interview He had quite a few things to say when asked about celebrities engaging maximum political overdrive…
“A lot of celebrities do, and shouldn’t.
A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family. You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway. They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills.
Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”
It’s baffling to think that millionaires, who are treated like royalty, think they have the right to tell us how to vote.
They made videos, making emotional pleas, to bamboozle voters into thinking their way. Yet they don’t understand the frustrations of the everyday person. The skyrocketing insurance bills. The shrinking job market. The ever-rising taxes. Hollywood just likes to be liberal because it’s fashionable; they don’t understand how their toxic policies destroy America.
Wahlberg’s comments smack of real wisdom. I don’t know his particular politics, and that’s fine. He understands it’s wrong for him and other famous actors and celebrities to tell us what to think. It’s almost as if he lets his conscience dictate his actions, not his checkbook or press agent.
The rest of Hollywood needs to learn from this man.
