The folks at the PBS News Hour promoted the latest video from MoveOn.org. They’re promoting a “99 Percent Spring” project with spokespeople from….the Hollywood One Percent. The ad stars Olivia Wilde of “House,” Penn Badgley of “Gossip Girl,” and Zoe Kravitz, an actress with a celebrity mom and dad (rocker Lenny Kravitz and former Cosby Show kid Lisa Bonet).
First it is interesting to note that on YouTube the comments have been disabled for this video.
This is sort of like Michael Moore being down with the anorexia crowd.
Why did they go into a business where you can make mega bucks with just one film? Why aren’t these goofs in the Peace Corps if they hate the free market so much?
They don’t live by the same environmental, health, anti-violence, civil rights, and other policy prescriptions they seek to inflict on the little people.
To them they think socialism is a novelty …a nicety whose time has come.
Stars, movie producers, writers and agents actively seek glamour, money, power and fame where they covet fast cars and face-lifts and fly in private jets yet they gag at the very thought of capitalism going on.
Wonder what they would do about the redistribution of their wealth?
You know how to get these dirty, smelly, unemployed hippies to stop protesting and run back to their parent’s basements to play Xbox or their favorite crack houses?? Hold a Job Fair at every protest and watch them scurry off like the cockroaches they are. To these maggots, “work” is a four letter word.
I can’t wait for the video of these “trained, non-violent protesters” taking dumps in major cities in the heat of July. That’s direct action.
Remember these people are intimidated by their own insecurities. They are motivated by their peers knowing that if they don’t they will be ostracized by the entertainment community. They lack in intelligence due to their skewed focus on being an “actor”. They know if they don’t follow the cult of actors they may never work in the business again.
The renewed OWS movement will bring out the crazies again for all to see, and the labor unions and Democratic action groups will not be able to control them. The Democrats may or may not realize the danger posed by OWS-2012, but the stakes are high. After all, the Obama Administration hasn’t “fixed” the issues he’d promised to handle, and the Fat Left knows it. Their demands (and antics) will run nightly with the highlights of Obama’s campaign events, demonstrating the ineffectiveness of his first term.
And the public generally gets turned off by vandalism caused by young radicals. Reports of crime in the camps will also be a turn-off. Residents are angry about the filth and the violence (not to mention the expense), and tourists will stay away, harming local businesses. And who will face the challenge of restraining and containing OWS groups in urban areas? They will be none other than the Democratic mayors who govern them.
