Actor James Cromwell to Hollywood: We Need to ‘Get More Political,’ ‘Educate People on the Right’

Actor James Cromwell to Hollywood: We Need to ‘Get More Political,’ ‘Educate People on the Right’

This movie actor thinks that liberals need to be MORE publicly out-spoken about their political views? Is he serious? If he is…

No. No, no, no. One reason of several I started this blog a few months ago was to precisely call out and catalog the liberal entertainer habit of spouting off political views publicly, and lecturing the American people, and to kindly ask them to please, please knock it off.

Celebrities: please stop discussing politics in public.

No, I don’t need you to “educate me” about politics. That is an arrogant attitude.

I am college educated – most of you celebrities I’ve read about are not. You either dropped out of college and did not get a degree, or you did not attend at all, but you think you are in a place to lecture ME?

Liberal actors (and singers) already publicly pontificate on politics far too much as it stands.

I have been right wing my entire life and was a Republican until a couple of years now (I am now, currently, no longer affiliated with any political party).

What annoys me and bothers me is that these liberal celebrities, who have never met me, who don’t know me, never the less act rudely towards me – to people like me who buy their records, watch their movies – and they behave rudely and condescendingly because I don’t share their political sentiments; they go on to their social media accounts and TV shows and interviews insulting anyone who is not a liberal.

I have a few posts on this blog already with numerous examples of different celebrities who have publicly insulted Republicans, conservatives, and anyone else who is not a liberal Democrat.

I would suggest that actors and singers shut up about politics in public. You’re alienating people who may otherwise buy tickets to see your movies or concerts.

Formerly Paralyzed Man Trains to Compete in Ironman

by B. Shiff

August 2017

After more than two decades, Rod Hutchins is finally very close to accomplishing his lifelong goal of completing an Ironman, the grueling, non-stop race that includes a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride, and a 26.2-mile run.

But Hutchins was once far from ready to race. Diagnosed with Guillain–Barré syndrome in the 1990s, Hutchins was paralyzed from the waist down, he told ABC affiliate KIFI. The syndrome causes muscle weakness and pain as the body’s immune system starts to attack its nervous system.

‘King Arthur,’ ‘Valerian’ among flops hurting theater chains
Poster child AMC dragged down by Wanda’s troubles in China

…..After several months of flops like Warner Bros.’ “King Arthur” and EuropaCorp’s “Valerian,” movie studios and theaters are beginning to acknowledge that their streak of record-setting ticket sales may be coming to an end.

…That announcement dragged down shares of theater stocks, wiping out $1.3 billion from the value of the top four cinema operators in North America since Aug. 1.

…The concern is that the slump isn’t just a run of bad luck. Cinema operators have managed for years to keep increasing sales by raising ticket prices amid stagnant attendance, but a sharp drop in filmgoing would make that harder to sustain.

It’s Never Too Late to Start or to Start Over Again – articles by various authors

A series of articles or, other related material, I will add to, should I find more about this topic.

How to Start Over (Hint: It’s Never Too Late)

As much as it may feel like you can’t get out of your current situation, as much weight as you put on the importance of maintaining your nine to five, as much fear as you have of disappointing your family—regardless of your current situation and regardless of your age, you’re never ever stuck.

Quotes About Starting Over

“Instead of saying, “I’m damaged, I’m broken, I have trust issues” say “I’m healing, I’m rediscovering myself, I’m starting over.”
― Horacio Jones

“Starting over can be the scariest thing in the entire world, whether it’s leaving a lover, a school, a team, a friend or anything else that feels like a core part of our identity but when your gut is telling you that something here isn’t right or feels unsafe, I really want you to listen and trust in that voice.”
― Jennifer Elisabeth, Born Ready: Unleash Your Inner Dream Girl

If the Nathan Rhodes Character Acted in the Bridesmaids Movie the Way Actor Chris O’Dowd Does In Real Life, Most Women Audience Members Would’ve Hated the Character

If the Nathan Rhodes Character Acted in the Bridesmaids Movie the Way Actor Chris O’Dowd Does In Real Life, Most Women Audience Members Would’ve Hated the Character

I will use this blog post to copy and paste any comments I made about O’Dowd on other sites. If I make any more. So far, there’s just the one.


I posted the following comment at a British site under an article about Chris O’Dowd.

O’Dowd just annoys me (ever since I found out he’s kind of jerky in real life), and it bothers me that there’s this perception of him as being a “Really Nice Guy” when he really is not one.

Months ago, when I first looked up info on O’Dowd (after having seen him in ‘Bridesmaids’), I came across some survey taken among British or Irish readers who were asked “out of everyone (or all Irish entertainers) you had to be stuck on a long car trip with, who would you choose.”

And I think O’Dowd was number one on the list, or in the top five.

For some reason, a lot of Europeans seem to be under the faulty impression that O’Dowd is this really great, nice guy who it would be enjoyable to spend time with.

Then, about a month ago, actor Jon Hamm said in some article that Chris O’Dowd is “one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.” I’m sure in person, O’Dowd is probably polite or rather friendly. I won’t dispute that.

However, I don’t think anyone who is truly “nice” – especially someone who is a celebrity with a large platform, such as television appearances and magazine interviews -would go around unnecessarily bashing religious people or right wingers, as O’Dowd has done and continues to do.

The comments you see below were originally placed at the bottom of this page:

Kent Online has this commenting policy in place:

I did leave some critical comments on their page, but nothing rude or hateful. In case the people at Kent Online disagree, however, I have copied my comments here:

What I have to say here is critical, but I don’t consider it “abusive,” so I hope this comment is not scrubbed from this page.

Had O’Dowd’s “Nathan Rhodes” character in the 2011 ‘Bridesmaids’ movie done or said some of the things O’Dowd has said and done in real life-

(such as, but not limited to, condescendingly and smugly insulting people for believing in a deity, or being politically right wing) –

-women audience members would have detested that Rhodes character, and much more so than the “jerk” character, “Ted,” played by actor Jon Hamm. I don’t think O’Dowd appreciates this fact at all.

I have no desire to watch O’Dowd in any future movies or TV shows, after having learned more about him online.

I really thought the character O’Dowd played in 2011’s “Bridesmaids” movie, the cop named Rhodes, was very sweet, so I was assuming (when I looked him up online after having seen the film) that he would be much the same way, but I was very wrong, and it was disappointing.

Celebrities Who Treat Their Fans Like Trash – The Mean Stars Site

Celebrities Who Treat Their Fans Like Trash – The Mean Stars Site

In my opinion, it’s always so disappointing to find out that a celebrity you’ve seen in concert, or on a TV show, or in a movie or where ever else, turns out to be a pervert, jerk, snob, or weirdo in real life, especially when their screen or stage persona seems so friendly and kind – such as Bill Cosby or Chris O’Dowd (as of 2017, O’Dowd is arguably best known for playing the nice cop character, Rhodes, in the movie “Bridesmaids“).

I found out about the “Mean Stars” site through an article called “Celebrities who treat their fans like trash”

First, here is a link to the Mean Stars site:

Celebrities who treat their fans like trash -by Nicki Swift

Excerpts:

When you’re rich and famous, it’s not hard to lose sight of the little people. While it can’t be easy to be the center of attention, celebrities have the choice to either be cool about their fans’ overzealous adulation or to be a total celebri-jerk about it. Here are some stars who, allegedly, have done some pretty terrible things to us pathetic, regular people.

Rihanna

Rihanna is a rude girl, at least to some fans. “My coworker won free tickets and backstage passes to see Rihanna about a year after they were first playing ‘Umbrella’ on the radio,” a former fan told Thought Catalog.

“When her kids finally got the chance to go meet Rihanna, she was sitting at her makeup booth and refused to face them, or even look at them. When they asked for her autograph, she told the closest backup dancer to forge it for them and shooed them away.”
