George Clooney: “Houston is Syria post Hurricane Harvey”

george clooney

Riiiiight. Because Syrian refugees and victims of Hurricane Harvey have so much in common.

Bonus: Not only does Julianne Moore want “re-education for everyone,” she also wants to “eradicate all these borders.”

From Hollywood Reporter: As George Clooney joins efforts to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Irma rips through Florida, the Hollywood star on Sunday likened Americans left homeless by catastrophic weather events to Syrians caught up in their country’s civil war.

“It’s going to take a long time … and we’ll all have to be involved, because Houston is Syria,” the multihyphenate said during a press conference for his film Suburbicon, which is screening this week at the Toronto International Film Festival after bowing in Venice. “People in Houston are now refugees based on something that had nothing to do with them. They didn’t do anything. They’re now victims and they’re out of their homes and they will be suffering for a very long time,” he added.

Harvey slammed into Texas’ Gulf Coast on Aug. 25 as a Category 4 hurricane. It was soon downgraded to a tropical storm but lingered for days, dropping up to 50 inches of rain on Houston and the surrounding area before moving eastward to Louisiana.

“We’re going to have to find ways to get involved — that’s our jobs as citizens of the world,” said Clooney. The Hollywood star directed Paramount’s Suburbicon, which features Matt Damon and Julianne Moore as a couple in over their heads with a dastardly plan in a caustic satire penned by Joel and Ethan Coen, Clooney and Grant Heslov.

Moore, also in Toronto to help promote the film, said humanitarian crises like in Syria and hurricane-ravaged Texas and Florida remind Americans they need to come together to help one another. “This is happening everywhere, with people being forced out of their homes and their nations and are looking for places to go. The only way we can help each other is by eradicating all these borders and thinking globally,” said the actress.

Damon said Suburbicon, a drama about very flawed people making very bad choices in a seemingly idyllic 1950s community, also has resonance with the Trump era. “You never know when you’re making a movie. A lot of these current events, we couldn’t have predicted,” said the actor.

A movie inspired by the true-life story of African-Americans who were harassed by their white neighbors to get them to move out of their Levittown, Pa., community in the 1950s, Suburbicon will inevitably be overshadowed by recent events in Charlottesville, Va., Damon suggested.

“Everything was there, but the lid hadn’t been torn off yet. And it seems like this presidency has reinvigorated this certain element, and emboldened them to step out into the open,” the actor said of Donald Trump’s defiant comments about alt-right provocateurs in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy.

The U.S. president stirred controversy when he initially declined to single out the white supremacists and neo-Nazis whose demonstration against the removal of a Gen. Robert E. Lee statue had led to violence and the death of a counter-protester in Charlottesville.

George Clooney: “There’s a dark cloud hanging over our country right now”

Damon, Clooney and Moore: Bunch of angry libtards

Feel free to keep your butt in Italy, George.

Bonus: Julianne Moore wants “re-education” for everyone.

From NY Post: George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” has a timely subplot — based both on present times and a 1957 incident — about racism in white America. That subplot, however, resounded deeply during the Venice Film Festival press conference for the film, which stars Matt Damon and Julianne Moore.

“I was watching a lot of speeches on the campaign trail about building fences and scapegoating minorities and I started looking around at other times in our history when we’ve unfortunately fallen back into these things,” said Clooney, talking about how the pic germinated.

While casting around for story ideas, Clooney found a 1957 incident that happened in Levittown, Pa., in which an African-American family moved into a suburban development; however, many white residents in the area reacted with violence. Then, while looking to try to make a film out of the Levittown story, he remembered that the Coen brothers had written a script called “Suburbicon,” so those two elements were meshed together.

Of course at that stage the Charlottesville, Va., race riots had yet to happen, noted Damon, who in the film plays a bad guy who goes all the way, to an extent that he’s “never been able to do so far” in his career.

“When we were filming we obviously could not have predicted the race riots,” said Damon. “We weren’t literally thinking that race riots would erupt in America right before this came out. But it does speak to the fact that these issues have not, and are not, going away. So there’s an honest reckoning in our country.”

As to the character Damon plays: “It’s kind the definition of white privilege when you are riding around your neighborhood on a bike covered in blood murdering people and the African-American family [who are his neighbors] is getting blamed for it,” he said.

Clooney pointed out that the film’s very dark tone reflects the anger he sees in the U.S. today.

“If you go to our country…depending on what side of the aisle you sit on, it’s probably the angriest I’ve ever seen it,” he noted. “There’s a dark cloud hanging over our country right now.” But he added: “I’m an optimist…I believe that we will get through all these things…but people are angry; a lot of us are angry.”

The “Suburbicon” director also underlined that the film “isn’t a movie about Donald Trump. … This is a movie about our coming to terms constantly with the idea that we have never fully addressed our issues with race.”

Moore, who plays a double role in the pic, made a clear-cut a statement on the issues being raised by Charlottesville.

“We are living in the United States where people are arguing about removing Confederate monuments: They must be removed,” she said. “You simply cannot have these figures from the Civil War in town squares and in universities for our children to see. As a parent and as a citizen I need to be active in the eradication of those, in the re-education of everyone. We have to take responsibility for it.”

Clooney joined her on a similar note: “This is something that is really festering right now in the United States: Talking about the Confederate flag, and the Jefferson Davis monument,” he noted.

“Now, if you want to wear it [a confederate flag] on your T-shirt or if you want to hang it on your front lawn…have at it. But to hang it on a public building where possibly African American tax payers are paying for it — and it’s a symbol of hate — that cannot stand.”

Hollyweird hypocrite: Julianne Moore’s latest film is full of gun violence

Shocker, right. Guess the pay was good for the hypocrite.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a Hollyweird movie that is due out on September 22. About the movie, from IMDb:

“When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman’s journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.”

The movie stars Julianne Moore who is a rabid anti-Second Amendment elite. She participated in the “Demand a plan to end gun violence” video that bodyguard-protected celebrities created in December 2012.

As Dr. Eowyn reported in January 2015, Moore is a gun-control pro-abortion atheist. From Dr. Eowyn’s post:

“…she (Moore) doesn’t want for strong opinions and has drawn angry responses to her tweets in favor of Planned Parenthood and gun control. “I get more reactions on Twitter about gun safety than anything else,” she says. “I don’t understand how we’re threatening the Second Amendment because we’re talking about gun safety rules. That, to me, is really shocking.”

…Turbulence is not unknown to her; she acknowledges that a peripatetic childhood left its share of instability, and she returns over and over to the theme of impermanence. She says she doesn’t believe in God and has a strong sense that meaning is imposed on a chaotic world.

In October 2015, Moore joined forces with Everytown for Gun Safety to launch the Everytown Creative Council in support of preventing gun violence. From my blog post:

“Moore hopes that with the help of the council, she can help create awareness for change. A note on the website reads, “We believe the creative community has an opportunity to use our communications skills and the power of culture to galvanize many more Americans in the gun violence prevention movement.”

Moore also noted in a press release that the council is not meant to fight against the 2nd Amendment.  “We do not believe that the 2nd Amendment and gun safety are mutually exclusive ideas, and as a creative community, we will do everything we can to support the safety of our fellow Americans, and galvanize more to join us in this movement.”

Guess “gun violence” is acceptable when performing your “cultural craft” and making the big bucks.

Julianne Moore Launches Creative Council To Support Gun Safety

Does their “cultural influence” include not making violent movies anymore? I highly doubt it.

Huffington Post: Julianne Moore has joined forces with Everytown for Gun Safety to launch the Everytown Creative Council in support of preventing gun violence. 

Moore spoke to People magazine about the new council, which is currently made up of 79 members of the creative community including Aziz Ansari, Kim Kardashian, Judd Apatow and Ellen DeGeneres (as well as Alec Baldwin and Jennifer Lawrence). According to a press release, the group will use its “cultural influence to support common-sense solutions proven to save lives from the gun violence that claims 88 American lives every day and injures hundreds more.”

The actress explained that her motivation to get involved in the gun safety discussion stemmed from the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012.  “I remember my daughter came to work with me that day. I was doing a movie in Queens and when we got into the van, I actually said to the driver, ‘Turn the radio off,'” Moore told People. “She was young, so the whole day, I kept the TV and the radio off.”

Later that same night, after looking at her phone, the actress’ daughter asked her if kids were shot. “I was like, ‘I’ve had it.’ I said to my husband, [director Bart Freundlich], ‘I’ve got to do something. This is the one thing that I need to say something about. This is my responsibility as a parent.” (So she says three years later.)

Moore hopes that with the help of the council, she can help create awareness for change. A note on the website reads, “We believe the creative community has an opportunity to use our communications skills and the power of culture to galvanize many more Americans in the gun violence prevention movement.”

Moore also noted in a press release that the council is not meant to fight against the 2nd Amendment.  “We do not believe that the 2nd Amendment and gun safety are mutually exclusive ideas, and as a creative community, we will do everything we can to support the safety of our fellow Americans, and galvanize more to join us in this movement.”

From the People article:

As actors, we are citizens first so we believe in the Constitution and the Second Amendment,” Moore says. “But 92 percent of the people in the United States are in favor of background checks, too, so I don’t feel like I’m in the minority. I definitely feel like I’m in the majority here.”

The actress equates gun safety with strives that have been made in the automobile industry as well. “For cars, you have to have training and you have to have a license, and you wear seat belts and we have airbags and we have all of these things in place that have reduced fatalities unbelievably,” Moore says. “And it was a totally unregulated industry at first. I feel like something that is very sensible and straight forward can be done also with guns.”

“I know people who own guns who have a gun safe because they have children in their house. These are responsible people. By talking about it, we can admit it’s a problem and we can admit that we want to work together to solve it.”

I’m all for firearm training and safety – any responsible gun owner is. And many states require training before you can obtain your conceal carry license (I had to take a class here in Oklahoma).

I need to take Ms. Moore to task on her “you have to have a license” for cars comparison: Driving is not a right, it is a privilege that one must quality for in the form of a license. But nice try at muddying the message.

P.S. If Ms. Moore believes that more gun regulation is the answer, she should look at Chiraq and get back to us with some better ideas.

Ellen Page is a feminist who supports Planned Parenthood and recently tried to prove her intelligence by challenging someone who is a law school graduate, adjunct professor of law, and debate champion. She failed.

Julianne Moore is a gun-grabbing hypocrite and pro-abortion atheist. She also likes to make fun of a woman who she portrayed in another liberal movie, Game Change.

Not that this is a movie I would ever want to see, but when Hollyweird continues to push an agenda with actors who are flaming liberals, they really limit their audience. I’m all for the First Amendment just as I am for capitalism. My money won’t ever be spent on anything that supports these two womyn.

HBO blatantly lies…

No political agenda, riiiiight

HBO says no political agenda behind Palin film

KOMO News:  In a politically polarized country, the people behind HBO’s upcoming movie on Sarah Palin’s vice presidential campaign are being careful not to take one side or the other.  “There is no agenda here,” Danny Strong, writer of the film “Game Change,” said at a news conference Friday. Filmmakers said they sought historical accuracy.

The movie debuts March 10. It is based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s book about the 2008 presidential campaign, but focuses specifically on Palin. Director Jay Roach said he wrote a long letter to the former Alaska governor seeking an interview with her to help the film, “but I got a very quick email back from her attorney saying, `I checked, she declined.”‘

“I don’t think this movie is going to change people’s minds one way or another,” Strong said. “People are very polarized. It’s not designed to change people’s minds.”

Actress Julianne Moore looks strikingly like Palin in her depiction. Asked what she thought of Palin after getting so close to the story, Moore said she had “profound respect” for the historical nature of the candidacy. (Notice how she didn’t directly answer the question, coward.)  “There was a tremendous amount of pressure,” Moore said. “That was what I was trying to capture, the pressure that she was under.”

Do tell, Ms. Moore, how you were able to capture the pressure she was under since you never spoke directly with Sarah Palin herself?  Remember this comes from an actress (part of the 1%)  that suggested “leadership is not about making more noise but about electing people who will take care of us.” 

HBO airs the disgusting Bill Maher show “Real Time” in which he and his panel once discussed having violent hate sex with Michele Bachman and Rick Santorum. 

HBO has no political agenda behind this movie?  Yeah, riiiiiight.  And I’m the Toothfairy.

“Electing people who will take care of us”

I am one of the 1%!

Actress Julianne Moore Disgusted By Partisan Politics

From ABC News:  In an interview with four-time Oscar nominated actress Julianne Moore she was quite candid about her feelings with regards the current political climate.  She says that it’s “most disappointing how partisan it’s become.”   She goes on the say that we are supposed to be the country of the UNITED STATES, greater than the sum of our parts, but that we have become divisive, with self-interest and special interests seeming to dominate.  

She says, “I’m really disgusted. I really feel kind of ashamed.”  Julianne Moore suggests that leadership is not about making more noise but about electing people who will take care of us.  She has just released a new children’s book, the third of a series.  It is called Freckleface Strawberry: Best Friends Forever.  Themes of inclusion and self-acceptance are paramount. (According to the one review of the book on Amazon, the main boy character, “Windy Pants”, has two moms.)

She states, “…be greater than the sums of our parts and to be able to work together to create a whole that benefits the majority of the people.  Taxation is that we are going to give a portion of our income to the government of the US…to  benefit  all of us, this idea that some of us pay more, some people pay less..blah, blah, blah, it’s like I don’t understand it and there’s got to be an end to it.”

Just so you know, Julianne Moore is part of the 1%.  She has a net worth of $40 million.  She also plays Sarah Palin, the “divisive” politician, in HBO’s Game Change.  She is a liberal that in the past supported John Kerry.

May I suggest two things to Ms. Moore: First: We don’t elect leaders to “take care of us”.  We elect them to abide by the laws of the land and govern according to the U.S. Constitution.  We elect leaders to protect our freedoms and our country. 

Secondly, you are concerned about the divisive state of our country? About those with self-interest?  I suggest you take a look at the current leadership of this country for plenty of examples of that exact  behavior.
