Celebrities With Conservative Derangement Syndrome Fall 2017

Celebrities With Conservative Derangement Syndrome Fall 2017

Is it Fall 2017 already? I first started these Conservative Derangement / Trump Derangement Syndrome posts around January 2017.

In some cases, liberal celebrities don’t just bash Trump, they bash anyone who voted for Trump.

As fall melts into winter, I will edit this post to add any new anti-Trump or Conservative Derangement comments or behavior by celebrities.

Chrissy Tiegen | September 2017

All I know is that she is supposedly a celebrity, but I don’t know who she is. I’m not sure if she is an actress or a model or what.

Chrissy Tiegen makes it known that when she slams the president, she’s NOT just insulting Trump

Robert Redford (movie actor) | September 2017

Robert Redford to Esquire: Trump Is ‘Our Fault,’ Worse ‘Than Nixon’

by C Weaver, Sept 13, 2017

Starring in movies about politics allegedly gives celebrities a political background. At least, that’s what Robert Redford thought in his latest interview.

The actor spoke with Esquire’s Michael Hainey in an interview published on September 13, where he talked about Nixon, Trump, and Mitch McConnell. …

On the subject of Donald Trump, Redford said, “I just think he is who he is. You can’t blame him for being who he is. He’s always been like that. He’s our fault — that’s how I see it.”

Since he starred in All the President’s Men, Redford decided that he had enough political credibility to be able to compare Nixon to Trump: “Whatever Nixon was, whatever his dark side, he was an accomplished politician … I think on the other side, there’s more ignorance.”

Danny Zucker (TV producer) | September 2017

WOW: Modern Family producer tweets ‘Dear Christians … f*ck you’ over DACA , deletes tweet

It seems like DACA has brought out the ugliest (and most hilarious) deleted tweets from our ‘friends’ on the Left. Suppose that’s what happens when your whole set of political ideals is based on emotion rather than fact or reality.

Like this winner from Danny Zuker, producer of Modern Family:

[Tweet said:]

@DunnyZucker

Dear Christians, if you support @realdonaldtrump’s decisin to end DACA your Christianity is bullshit. But on the other hand fuck you. 9/3/17, 10:13 PM

/// end Tweet

Guess Danny doesn’t think Christians watch his show? Or maybe he just doesn’t want them to.

Can a White Person Make a Movie about African Americans? by Brendan O’Neill

Can a White Person Make a Movie about African Americans? by Brendan O’Neill

Can a White Person Make a Movie about African Americans? by Brendan O’Neill

Excerpts:

Some on the left say no.

Not content with harassing white people who wear their hair in cornrows and branding as “cultural appropriation” everything from college cafés serving sushi to Beyoncé donning a sari, now the new racial purists are coming for film director Kathryn Bigelow.

Her crime? She’s a white woman.

More specifically, she’s a white woman who dared to tell the story of the 1967 Detroit riots in her latest movie.

It’s wrong for whites to tell black stories, apparently, because they can never truly understand those stories. It’s a profoundly philistine argument that exposes the misanthropy of the racial thinking that passes for radical commentary these days.

Worst Box Office In 25 Years (Sept 2017): Hollywood’s Problems Are Permanent & Deep

Worst Box Office In 25 Years: Hollywood’s Problems Are Permanent & Deep

Worst Box Office In 25 Years: Hollywood’s Problems Are Permanent & Deep

Excerpts:

Even before this catastrophic Labor Day weekend is factored in (more on this below), the domestic 2017 box office is in hideous shape. This year is –6.3% behind 2016 and continues to fall behind 2015, 2013, and 2012.
If you figure in inflation, those numbers are even worse.

For example, in 2012 the average ticket cost $7.96. Today it is almost a full dollar more at $8.89. Yeah, things are that bad and will look even worse on Tuesday.

With no apparent faith in their own product, this is the first Labor Day in 25 years where a new title has not been released on more than 1,000 screens. Over this weekend last year, the box office hauled in nearly $130 million. This year will do about a third of that.

 Summer attendance is at a 25-year low.

Lady Gaga Breaks Down Revealing She’s Alone Despite Fame, as Her Former Christian Teacher Warned

Lady Gaga Breaks Down Revealing She’s Alone Despite Fame, as Her Former Christian Teacher Warned

In so far as celebrities can make it to the top of their respective careers (sports, singing, or acting), I admire that, but – first of all, I do not worship celebrity, as so many other people do, but secondly, I have seen so many stories for years now about how when someone finally becomes really famous, they still end up happy. Some celebrities commit suicide.

Here’s an article I saw today about how singer Lady Gaga still sometimes feels lonely, even though she’s very famous and successful:

Lady Gaga Breaks Down Revealing She’s Alone Despite Fame, as Her Former Christian Teacher Warned

by J Law

August 30, 2017

Lady Gaga’s [real name – Stefani Germanotta] former teacher, evangelist Chris White, once warned the pop star that she would be left feeling empty from her fame. In a new preview for her upcoming “Five Foot Two” documentary, the singer tearfully reveals that she is in fact alone despite her fame.

Actor Dwayne (“The Rock”) Johnson’s Inspirational Story – He Doesn’t Want People to Give Up on Their Dreams

Actor Dwayne (“The Rock”) Johnson’s Inspirational Story – He Doesn’t Want People to Give Up on Their Dreams

There are many different videos you can catch of Dwayne Johnson (“The Rock”) discussing his background, and how he overcame obstacles to find success.

In the videos I saw, Johnson talked about growing up in poverty. His father worked as a professional wrestler, and his mother worked as a cleaning lady.

At one point, when he was a kid, his family was so broke, they couldn’t pay their apartment rent anymore and were evicted.

I’m just going to present you with a few examples here (at the bottom of this page) – if you go to You Tube and search for Johnson’s name, you can find many more.

First, here are some web pages about his background and other things:

How The Rock went from failed football player to the highest-paid actor in Hollywood

How ‘The Rock’s’ failures propelled him to success 

Dwayne Johnson shares inspiring story of his battle with depression

How Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Came Back From Rock Bottom

The Rock shares inspiring message about failure

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson shares inspiring message for people with depression

The Drive (and Despair) of The Rock: Dwayne Johnson on His Depression, Decision to Fire Agents and Paul Walker’s Death

His movies grossed $1.3 billion last year. Now the underestimated A-lister attempts to own summer again as he reveals how he rebooted his career and the bouts of depression that pushed him: “Eventually you are all cried out.”

..His five releases in 2013 together reaped $1.3 billion — more than any other star’s box office last year — making him, at least as far as his Hercules and San Andreas producerBeau Flynn is concerned, “the biggest star around.”

Blocked by Actor Chris O’Dowd on Twitter

Blocked by Actor Chris O’Dowd on Twitter

August 30, 2017

I think that O’Dowd needs to take personal responsibility for his public comments and actions – whether in interviews and social media or where ever else – as even the cop character he played in the film “Bridesmaids” was telling another character in one scene she ought to do, but he seems happier to brush off or ignore criticisms in real life.

The picture I’m getting is that O’Dowd does not want to accept personal responsibility for any offensive or terrible things he Tweets or has said in interviews (he has insulted people of faith in interviews, insulted all religion in general, and periodically insults conservatives or Republicans on his Twitter account).

I found out today I was blocked by O’Dowd on Twitter. I suppose he blocked me either yesterday or today – probably today, though I’m not sure.

O’Dowd is apparently not as nice and friendly as the media keep saying he is.

However, that is something I’ve come to discern over the last year or two after reading more of his interviews, which came as a surprise at first, because I was expecting him to be as nice in real life as the character he played in the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie.

I’m not sure exactly which tweet of mine set O’Dowd off that caused him to block me. Or, maybe it was a combination Tweets?

(Maybe it was this Aug 24 Tweet where I said I had no plans of watching his “Get Shorty” show, as he slams conservatives on his Twitter page and is an anti-theist?)

I’ve only blogged about O’Dowd a few times on my blog. I’ve never tweeted to him or at him, however. I’ve never threatened him or harassed him. I’m harmless. I’m just a person with a blog and some opinions.

Even though O’Dowd has blocked me, by logging out of Twitter, I can still go back to his page and read it, if I so choose.

I didn’t have plans of visiting O’Dowd’s Twitter page on a regular basis, only to check back over this next week or so to see if he’s done any charity work on behalf of Texans displaced by Hurricane Harvey, but no, he has not.

I would guess O’Dowd periodically checks for his name on Twitter, under the hash tag system – because I was hash tagging his name to the Tweets I made where I linked to my few blog posts about him?

I’ve only blogged about this guy a handful of times on my blog here.

I have never used O’Dowd’s Twitter handle to talk to him personally or to leave him comments.  (Until today, when I sub-tweeted his Melania Trump bashing tweet here, but this was after he blocked me.)

(By the way, even though O’Dowd blocked me, I did not block him.)

‘Gone With the Wind’ Actor’s Widow Blasts Theater that Banned Film

Excerpts:

August 29, 2017

By Sasha Savitsky

The wife of late “Gone With the Wind” actor Fred Crane is outraged over a Memphis theater’s decision to ban the film for its racially “insensitive” content.

Terry Lynn Crane told Fox News she was “very, very disturbed” when she heard the historic Orpheum Theatre decided to stop showing “Gone With the Wind” after hosting the classic 1939 film for 34 years.

“By making a statement, they are trying to make a problem,” Crane told us. “They are inciting racial division and it’s only escalating.”
