As Laura Ingraham Said...

The most amazing thing to me- no matter how many times I see it play out- is the way some of our esteemed "entertainers" wade into the political pool and are actually taken seriously by some people. For some reason- perhaps because they are beautiful and/or talented- these performers feel that they are highly qualified to espouse opinions and wisdom to the masses. Worse, some out here in the "masses" feed these enormous egos by listening to the ignorant bleating and even applauding it. I know, I know... it's crazy, right? Crazy, as in gob-smackingly nutso crazy... right?

These famous people are routinely invited to speak out in left-leaning media outlets- often with "serious correspondents and reporters" interviewing them. Now, why would any "serious correspondent or reporter" (who was, indeed, serious) want to interview a "celebrity" on political/government issues? Seriously... why? How insane has our culture become when we look to rock singers and movie people for political ideas...?

Well, in the spirit of Ms. Ingraham's wise admonishment to the Hollywood crowd ("Shut Up And Sing"), I'd like to give a shout-out to some of the more... colorful poli-tainers.

-michael moore -- corpulent bottom-dweller and virulently anti-American, anti-military, anti-President Bush, opinionated ultra-liberal pundit and Conservative trashing (especially President Bush) film maker. Experience in government, military, politics, leadership: ZERO.

Hey, michael moore: You said that the terrorists operating in Iraq are the same as our revolutionary "Minute Men"- and you said they would win... and you said it with gusto! I've been reading up on American history, mike... and I can't find the part where our Minute Men blew up thousands of innocent civilians (including thirty small children in one attack)... wanna help me with that one? Please shut the hell up.

-Bruce Springsteen, Linda Ronstadt, Dixie Chicks, Dave Matthews, REM, Pearl Jam, et al -- virulently anti-President Bush, opinionated liberal singers and trash-talking, would-be opinion makers. Experience in government, military, politics, leadership: ZERO.

Hey, singers: Is there anything you don't know? I'm awestruck at the depth of your political acumen... no, really! Whether it's the Dixie Chicks being ashamed to be from Texas because of our President, or REM ranting about abortion "rights", or Linda Ronstadt being "sickened" at the thought of any Christians being in her audience... the level of clear thinking is astonishing. My favorite, though, is the "Boss" holding concerts to raise money- not to build or create something of value- but to get "anybody but Bush" elected. Please, all of you, shut the hell up.

-Barbra Streisand, jane fonda, Alec Baldwin, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange, Cameron Diaz, et al: virulently anti-President Bush, opinionated liberal "actors" and trash-talking, would-be opinion makers. Experience in government, military, politics, leadership: ZERO.

Hey, actors: Why are you still here?? Some of you promised that you would leave if George W. Bush was elected... and he has been... TWICE. Shouldn't you be going now? I mean... just so people will believe that you actually do have convictions and were not just making noise...?

I heard that now jane fonda is going to tour the country in a vegetable-oil powered vehicle. The purpose of the tour? You guessed it... to protest America and the war against terrorism. I wonder how long it will be before she is posing for pictures with the jihad terrorists on the streets of Baghdad? I can almost see her there... holding up an RPG and smiling... telling American troops to give up and go home... ah, how America loves Ms. Fonda.

I remember watching Cameron Diaz on Oprah before the elections last November. She and Drew Barrymore came on to warn American women that if President Bush was reelected, rape would be legalized. I wish I was making that up... but I'm not. She really, actually said that. Umm... Cameron...? How's that whole legal rape thing going? Yeah... well, don't worry... some of us know that what you really meant was that President Bush hates women and doesn't want them to be able to legally murder unborn children...

I realize that Ms. Paltrow has actually moved away from evil America... and I salute her for that. Now, since you're gone and are no longer wanting to be a part of this country, will you please join the rest of the actors and please... please... PLEASE shut the hell up (and kindly tell your moonbat husband to also shut the hell up).

Why is it important that these people shut up? Besides the fact that they often make huge asses of themselves, they also do huge damage to our country. Mindless people believe their ludicrous rantings... and good people are often hurt by them. Shaping public opinion is much easier for the beautiful people who have the media in their pockets.

Also important to remember is that the really dangerous ones are the directors and film MAKERS who are anti-American and rabidly socialistic/communistic in their views. They will go to extreme lengths to push people the way they want them to go. The new TV series "Over There" seeks to give a view of the Iraq war from the soldiers' perspective. The problem is, all the REAL soldiers and Marines who have watched it say that it is the worst and most inaccurate show ever. Then we have English director Sir Ridley Scott’s Crusades flick, Kingdom of Heaven (yes, I realize you may not have heard of it since it BOMBED so badly at the box office). In this movie, muslims are portrayed as peaceful and dedicated to co-existing with everyone else in the world... until the evil Christians show up and ruin everything.

Public opinion used to be shaped by information and charismatic leaders. Now it is shaped by mis-information and charismatic entertainers. When it comes to making decisions on political and governmental issues, sound bites and videos of talented-but-ignorant entertainers are, sadly, more influential to some Americans than facts and honest, intelligent debate.

Legalized rape, indeed...

Please. Shut. The. Hell. Up.

I agree-- shut up and sing. A lot of singers and/or actors are hard to watch now that they've come out and said such horrid things.

kmg,
I agree with Rachel - lot of actors/actresses have lost my respect, having done and said things that, to me, are reprehensible.

For them to 'shut up and sing', they have to have some smarts! They've been singing, but to the wrong tune, in the wrong key!
