Left Wing Celebrity Joss Whedon’s Continual Anti-Right Wing, Anti-Trump Rhetoric
In the future, should this Whedon guy opine rudely about Trump or politics again, I suppose I may amend this post to add links to whatever new, obnoxious thing he’s said to the bottom of this post.
In the several months since I started this blog and its associated Twitter account, I keep seeing Joss Whedon’s name pop up. The guy is a liberal, he’s a film director, and he keeps trashing right wingers, Republicans, and/or Trump.
He produced or directed the 1990s TV show “Buffy the Vampire” slayer (a show I used to enjoy very much), and he’s either directed or written scripts for several of the Marvel comic book character movies (several of which I’ve also enjoyed).
Based on every map I’ve seen of the 2016 Presidential election, that shows the Popular Vote, Hillary Clinton mainly only won on the west and east coasts (e.g, California, New York), which most maps represent by shading blue. The rest of the country, for the most part, is shaded in Red, showing that most people in those states voted for Trump.
Of course, Trump won the electoral vote, which seems to have many liberals frothing at the mouth in anger. If we’re going by the Popular Vote, which Clinton won, based on my memory of maps showing who won what, Hillary only got the popular vote on the east and west coasts.
I cannot fathom the sour grapes of liberals such as Joss Whedon who want to alienate, exclude, or disregard all the “red areas” of the map, which went to Trump.
It seems to me if you don’t want Trump to win in the next election, you would very much care to know why your side lost the election (and stop it with the “Russians are to blame” nonsense), and try to appeal to folks who voted for Trump.
As has been pointed out time and again in the news, many of those in the “rust belt” of the nation who voted for Trump in 2016 had voted for Obama (Democrat) in the past two previous elections!
There is obviously something very wrong with the Democratic Party that former Democratic voters switched to Republican (and Trump) in the 2016 races, and the Russians had nothing to do with it.
From Time magazine:
Presidental Results (shows popular vote information)
Looking at the vote totals in each state helps explain it: Clinton’s entire popular vote margin, for example, is less than her overall margin of victory in California (which she won by more than 4 million votes). New York, too, is a populous state that delivered Clinton 1.7 million more votes than Trump but couldn’t help her overcome the Electoral College deficit.
Picking on or mocking folks who voted for Trump does not come across like a winning strategy to me, and, there again, I am really tired of famous people, especially left wingers, who pontificate publicly about their political views, and especially in such a rude or obnoxious fashion:

Liberal director Joss Whedon on Monday mocked the 62 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump as “uncaring and obnoxious.” In an interview with the website Good, the filmmaker spat, “We have a mass movement going on. It just needs to prove it’s stronger than 60 million very misinformed voters who are not afraid to be uncaring and obnoxious.”
Responding to those who don’t like being lectured by millionaire liberals, Whedon explained that he simply has to attack Republicans:
If you have a forum, you speak out. It’s as simple as that. Does it always help? No, but sometimes what’s important is the simple act of someone speaking. Will there be a backlash? Always.
But not speaking out is the Good German. You cannot ignore what is happening right now. I mean, I don’t want to talk about politics. It affects way people view my work, in a very terrible way. I wouldn’t do it if the situation weren’t dire.

More Joss Whedon links (also listed in a previous post of mine):
Joss Whedon, the director and writer behind “The Avengers” and several other Hollywood films, on Friday night expressed his desire for a rhinoceros to “fuck” Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan “to death with its horn.”
Whedon, a very vocal Hollywood liberal who was an active Hillary Clinton supporter during the 2016 election, often tweets of his hatred for all things Republican. This appears to be the first time he has advocated for the death of a Republican, though Whedon said he did so “because it’s FUNNY.”
“Avengers” director Joss Whedon went after President Trump‘s daughter Ivanka Trump, likening her to a Pekingese dog, and called her husband Jared Kushner a “Voldemort in training.”
The filmmaker tweeted alongside a picture of Kushner, “Hey, keep your eyes on this f–king prize too. He’s a Voldemort in training, & unlike the Pekingese he married under, can play the long game.”
Fans immediately called out the self-proclaimed feminist Whedon for comparing Ivanka Trump to a breed of small, yappy dogs.
The angered Avengers director condemned the confirmation: “Rejecting DeVos was the GOP’s easiest way to say ‘Mr Prez, let’s take this slow, we got 4 yrs’. Instead they declared war on our children.”
And the whole fight against Donald Trump seems to have taken something out of Whedon, as he went on to tweet: “I think I’m broken. I never ran smooth but I think I’m really broken, I’m sorry, I was funny for a while, good times, please keep fighting.”
Avengers” director Joss Whedon is on the attack against the president’s daughter.
Whedon took to Twitter on Tuesday — where he’s been spewing anti-Trump lines for weeks — to insult Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner.
“Hey, keep your eyes on this f—ing prize too. He’s a Voldemort in training,” the comic book creator wrote, along with a photo of Jared Kushner in the Oval Office.
“Unlike the Pekingese he married under, can play the long game,” he continued, taking a jab at Ivanka.
Fans were quick to question where the insulting attitude by the director came from.
…Another added, “Just so we’re on the same page here. You just called Ivanka a dog because you don’t agree with Trump. Classy.”
Whedon — who is often considered a feminist writer — was slammed for his derogatory comment about the daughter of the president.
“Is that how you fight for women’s rights?” a Twitter user questioned.
Adding, “Maybe next time just come out and say ‘b—h.’ You ain’t fooling anyone with ‘Pekingese.'”
“Was it ok to attack Obama’s children? No. So stop attacking Trump’s children. People like you are the problem, just keep it civil,” a Twitter user wrote.
The controversial words come just days after the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator compared Nicole Kidman to a plastic Lady Penelope doll after she suggested Americans accept Trump as president.
Oh jeeze, this is lame – and smacks of desperation:
The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator wants to save the day—with his new super-PAC.
..It was the latest in a string of videos from Save the Day, a super-PAC started by Joss Whedon, the creator, writer, and director behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly,Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Cabin in the Woods, and The Avengers. Whedon isn’t entirely new to electoral politics; he made an amusing video in 2012 about how Mitt Romney would usher in the zombie apocalypse. But his latest project is a more all-consuming endeavor—a full-time, multimonth initiative with $1 million of his own money behind it.
Save the Day’s viral videos are too long for TV and aren’t intended to sway undecided voters. Instead, the aim is to rile up liberal-leaning millennials to make sure they show up and vote. “[The] ethos is there is this heroic act called voting,” Whedon says. “The world is scary, and things are overwhelming, and there’s a lot at stake. But this voting thing is actually beautiful.”
Some Save the Day videos are filled with the celebrities who populate Whedon’s popular films—Robert Downey Jr. (Ironman), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (the Hulk), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Neil Patrick Harris (Dr. Horrible). There are other big-name stars, as well, including Julianne Moore and Martin Sheen. To date, the group’s first spot has been watched more than 7.5 million times.
“Avengers” director Joss Whedon used a picture of House Speaker Paul Ryan meeting with teenagers battling cancer to diss President Trump about his past comments disparaging women.
Ryan tweeted Thursday a picture of himself shaking hands with Wisconsin teenagers who are fighting cancer.
Whedon took the opportunity to mock the photo, pitching Ryan as a host of a game show, “White House Wife Hunt.”
