Actor Chris Evans’ Anti-Trump Rants
(Edited below, August 2, 2017 update)
Well, this is disappointing. I saw Evans in a few of those Marvel movies, where he plays Captain America, and I enjoyed those films and his role.
According to this one article, Evans not only criticizes Trump, but he also insults people who voted for Trump. Celebrities need to stop doing this – some of the very people these movie actors mock or insult in interviews are some of the same people who support them, by paying for tickets to see their movies.
There is no gratitude to the public from these liberal entertainment jerks.
From actor Chris Evans (Captain America) to director Joss Whedon, the Marvel Comics franchise is committing harikari in the most unbecoming of ways: through unapologetic, partisan bashing of a democratically elected president they can’t stand.
Evans has expressed deep contempt for what he considers to be in the ignorant masses of Americans that voted Donald Trump into the White House. These are, however, the very masses that make up the core viewership of Marvel’s superhero movies.
….In large part, the bizarre rants the Marvel folks carry out on Twitter and elsewhere are abortion driven.
Spitting in the face of their conservative fan base that is overwhelmingly pro-life, Whedon and Evans, along with other Marvel stars such as Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), fawn over Planned Parenthood while painting abortion foes as backward and unenlightened.
…Why actors and filmmakers feel an irresistible urge to allow partisan politics to get in the way of their craft is a mystery, but whatever their motives such unrestraint often has consequences.
It’s only a matter of time before Marvel’s fan base calls them out for their hypocrisy. Un-American anti-heroes are not what patriots pay to see.
Captain America hates on Donald Trump by Cheryl Chumley, May 30, 2017
The actor who plays Captain America, Chris Evans, has launched a fight against President Donald Trump, taking his public platform in a new political direction to talk up how bad the commander-in-chief is to any fan who will listen.
Talk about ‘dissing your fans. Evans’ contempt for Trump voters is akin to Hillary Clinton’s likening of them as “deplorables.” At least Clinton doesn’t need people to buy tickets to her movie to make a living, though.
And as Breitbart noted: Sideswipe a Trump fan, chances are pretty good you’re sideswiping a Marvel fan as well.
“Evans has expressed deep contempt for what he considers to be the ignorant masses of Americans that voted Donald Trump into the White House,” the news outlet said. “These are, however, the very masses that make up the core viewership of Marvel’s superhero movies.”
….Anyhow, he’s gone on several Twitter rants in recent days against Trump, rants that include slams like, “this man disgusts me,” and this man has driven the “wave of ignorance and hate.”
It’s not that Hollywood’s known around the nation as a bright spot for political analysis. But what is curious about Evans is that he’s basically slapping the faces of those who feed him.
_____Update. August 2, 2017_____
Chris Evans called Donald Trump a “reckless moron” over Twitter on Tuesday for a joke the president made during his speech before Long Island law enforcement officers on Friday.
The “Captain America” actor’s reaction came after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed Trump’s remarks during a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon, clarifying that Trump was “making a joke.”
[The Evans Tweet reads]
“You reckless moron. Do you have any idea what you’re encouraging? You think a ‘joke’ makes it ok?? ZERO societal awareness and understanding,” Evans tweeted with a clip of Trump’s remarks from Friday.
/// end Tweet
Trump has been a strong supporter of all law enforcement in America and has also made it clear that the safety of American people is one of his top priorities in office.
