Susan Sarandon, OWS Hypocrite

Rate this post

Definition of hypocrite: 1: a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion or 2: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.
Limousine liberals are a sub-group of hypocrites. The term was coined in the late 1960s to refer to the hypocrisy of wealthy liberals who call for the use of mass transit while frequently using limousines or private jets, claiming environmental consciousness but driving low MPG sports cars or SUVs, or ostensibly supporting public education while actually sending their children to private schools.
If there’s an award for limousine liberalism, I nominate actress Susan Sarandon.

Susan Sarandon in Zucotti Park

On September 28, 2011, the 64-year-old Sarandon, “a veteran of protest marches and civil disobedience actions for liberal and humanitarian causes,” stopped by the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park on her way to Italy, to show her support for the anti-corporate “eat the rich” movement.
She told the crowd: “I’m just here to be educated and offer my support. There’s a lot of different kinds of people here who want to shift the paradigm to something that’s addressing the huge gap between the rich and the poor.”

On October 14, 2011, the same Susan Sarandon appeared at the launch of clothing company Uniqlo’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
As the new face of Uniqlo’s US Autumn Collection, Sarandon obligingly wore an ugly jacket made out of a fabric covered with the company’s red logo.
Sarandon has an estimated net worth of $50 million. If she hadn’t recently divorced Tim Robbins, another loud-mouthed Hollywood socialist who’s also an OWS supporter and also has a net worth of $50 million, the couple would have a net worth of $100 million. That would get them beheaded — according to the yardstick ($100 million and over) of yet another phony Hollywood socialist, Roseanne Barr.
Conveniently, Barr’s estimated net worth is “only” $80 million, which is $20 million short of that guillotine magic figure of $100 million. Barr should really try not to get any wealthier, or she would have to behead herself.
Umm…. What was that definition of “hypocrite” again?

  1. Susan Sarandon’s Jacket looks like it was made from an Old Diner’s Table-Cloth?…Except With Words on The Red Squares!
    And Roseanne Barr Could “Easily” Loose 50 lbs. of Ugly-Fat; If She Was Be-Headed!

  2. What about that greedy corporation L’oreal she speaks for? HYPOCRITE.

  3. Hypocrite = Liberal, Democrat, Socialist, Communist, etc.

  4. I’d like to understand you guys and why you dislike unions so much and are seemingly for unregulated corporate power. I understand unions can and have gotten carried away and hurt business but some of you are unfairly demonizing anyone who supports unions as “evil commies, etc”
    Notice: I’m not bashing you, just trying to understand you —
    It seems to me you are siding with the mega corporations who have hurt mainstreet America in countless ways : Monsanto, for instance,
    who are filing patents on the majority of seeds and running the small farms out of business — They are practically stealing farms from hard working American farmers simply because they find their patented plants growing in their fields. (which happens all the time — A truck carrying Monsanto seeds could be driving by their farm and seeds inadvertently falling out on their land — many farms have been sued out of existence because of this)
    If it weren’t for Unions, corporations would still be running amok – families would still have to put their children to work just to be able to survive – The average work week would be over 61 hours and pay would be at barely livable minimums. There would be no paid medical leave act – So if a worker had the misfortune of getting too sick to work, they would be starving. Employer based health coverage would be nearly non-existent.
    Do you consider me an enemy of you and of America for supporting the blue collar worker over the megalith monopolizing corporations? Would you have supported the Rail Road monopoly back in the 1800s whom would have continued to make their workers minimally paid slave laborers and stolen land and farms from the American patriots of that day?

    • “Why don’t you comprehend that? ”
      Actually, I haven’t read anything as to your view on labor unions. That’s why I’m asking now.
      “And, it was the churches in the 19th century that led the charge against child labor in England and the United States.”
      Are you suggesting labor unions had not much to do with it? I could provide articles and evidence if you disagree.

    • And it was also the churches that led the abolitionist anti-slavery movement.

    • Dear The Tman… Why? Moderation in all things. If one side has its way all the time, the results is the same. Working 61 hours a week to live in poverty with inadequate healthcare, universal union membership (not to mention exhorbitant dues) and confiscatory taxes would be the result of unfettered left/liberal union and government power… not to mentioned a “right” to be subject to all of this without choice or even the option to complian about it for the sake of “social justice,” you know.

    Do you guys support this? It’s not surprising but some in the GOP wouldn’t mind if we undid all the progress Unions have made in America. We would go back to a time of child factory laborers and take away livable wages so families would have to have their children work to be able to survive. Women would no longer have equal rights or equal pay if it were up to people like this.
    WHY?? Why am I evil for being against that?

    • Tman,
      Do you suffer from reading comprehension? This post is about the HYPOCRISY (df: saying one thing but doing the opposite) of Susan Sarandon, who says she supports the anti-corporation OWS, but then is herself the new spokeswoman for a corporation – a clothing company. She is not a corporate spokesman for financial reasons because Sarandon has an estimated net worth of $50 million.
      Did I anywhere in this post mention unions or child labor or livable wages? It was you who inserted those issues, in an effort to do a “material fallacy” and so distract us from the point of my post, which is Sarandon’s hypocrisy.
      I can only conclude that you approve of hypocrisy.

      • I know .. I wrote you an email just now to explain I’m not trying to step on your toes here ; My reply wasn’t anything to do with Susan or your article here, I just wanted a forum for bringing up my questions to you guys about unions. This OWS protest is similar to the union protests in Wisconsin so by extension it’s not entirely off topic.
        Anyway, I’m honestly not trying to offend or annoy you … I really would like to have a debate about these topics without irritating you. — Perhaps I should have found a better article to post under , I dunno.

  6. Aaand Action:
    …”Oh we adORE you ‘little’ people… we just don’t want ‘live’ like you little people. You can’t expect ‘us’ to do without or lower ‘our’ standards now can you *giggle* be good and do as we say… not as we do, K? *winks* Love you all! Kisses! *muwah* ….” Aaand..Cut! That’s a wrap!
    Barf bags anyone…?

  7. Anyway , have a good day folks. Just trying to understand your viewpoint on this rather than argue with you.

  8. Funny how these rich lefty celebs can’t can’t seem to see the blatant hypocrisy going on here.
    It’s really mind boggling.

  9. It is utterly amazing how people get off the point that Dr. Eowyn made, that the very people who are extremely wealthy participating in corporate dynamics and profit, are the same people who ACT like they support causes who are against corporate success. In other words, this post has nothing to do with unions or organizations that help employees with employer relations, et al. Tman, you indicate you are just trying to understand us. That is fine, but the issue is very clear and I am trying to understand why you don’t see the hypocrisy because it is so terribly obvious: the very individuals who demonize free enterprise and corporations (there is nothing wrong with free enterprise or corporations!) are the very people who participate in free enterprise and corporations. Call a spade, a spade and quit floundering.

  10. i remember an old monty pythons flying circus skit in which john cleese
    was a highwayman “denis moore” who stole from the rich and gave to the poor until there were no rich no more…

  11. Email I sent to Uniqlo @‘ please send email and let them know how you feel.
    I hope that recent hateful comments made by Susan Sarandon regarding a religious leader of millions of Catholics will prompt you to remove her as a spokesperson for your new flagship store in New York. Her comments are also being denounced by Jewish leaders as reprehensible. I will boycott your brand and urge others to do the same until I know you have fired her.
    Do the right thing. Hate speech should never be tolerated in any form. I am sure your brand does not want to be associated with someone who uses hate speech.

  12. Ever wonder why some in hollywood are such good actors?? they morph in and out of one character so easy. They don’t know who they really are,or do they?? I hope Americans,starve them. During the last 3yrs so far,they have shown their true colors pretty much. They do not deserve what we have made them.

    • Insightful observation, Tina.
      The word hypocrisy comes from the Greek ὑπόκρισις (hypokrisis), which means “play-acting”! That’s why actors are masters of hypocrisy. Afterall, they do that — put on masks — for a living. 😉
