Irish Entertainers Publicly Supporting Abortion – including U2 and Actor Chris O’Dowd (This Is Not A Good A Thing)

Irish Entertainers Publicly Supporting Abortion – including Pop Band U2 and Actor Chris O’Dowd (This Is Not A Good A Thing)

I’ve said it before on this blog, and I’ll no doubt have to say it again in the future, but celebrities really should keep their political views to themselves – and I’dd add they should keep their view on highly controversial, inflammatory topics, such as abortion, to themselves as well.

Before I address the annoying public celebrity commentary and support of a controversial issue, to get you up to date here is a link or to about what I’m discussing in this post:

Ireland abortion referendum – the key facts

On May 25 Irish people will vote on whether to relax the country’s strict abortion laws.

Irish abortion referendum: voters on both sides prepare to head home

Ireland divided ahead of abortion referendum

May 2018

Ireland’s strict anti-abortion law was enshrined in its constitution in 1983. No exceptions are made for rape, incest or foetal abnormality, but a later amendment does allow women to travel abroad for a termination.

The vote takes place on May 25th. If the current law is repealed, abortions will be allowed up to 12 weeks of pregnancy in most cases and up to 24 weeks if the women’s health is at risk.

Which brings me to this:

Irish Celebrities Publicly Supporting Legalized Abortion

Irish celebrities have been turning up in the news to support the legalization of abortion in Ireland the last few weeks.

At first, I saw mentions of Irish pop band U2, but as of today, I’ve seen a few mentions of Irish actor Chris O’Dowd (who last I heard is residing in a Los Angeles home that he apparently paid around $870,000 in cash for, yet complaining at one time that some of the movie roles he’s accepted don’t pay enough!!), also publicly speaking out in support of abortion.

Updates (new links) about the consequences of Kayne West’s support of Trump father below.

Gutfeld: Kanye’s Defense of Candace Owens ‘A Big Deal’ – ‘He Challenged the Mob’

April 2018

Greg Gutfeld said it is a “big deal” that rapper Kanye West defended conservative activist Candace Owens against attacks over her political ideology.

Owens, who is black, has been criticized for her support of President Donald Trump and for her conservative political thoughts.

West tweeted that he “loves the way Candace Owens thinks” and later added that “self-victimization is a disease.”

Shania Twain Apologizes After Saying She Would Have Voted For Trump

Shania Twain Caves To Left-Wing Intimidation  

Leftists are taking Canadian singer Shania Twain to the woodshed.

Her crime? In an interview with the Guardian, she said that she would have supported President Donald J. Trump in the 2016 election, if she had been allowed to vote. She said she would have voted for Trump because he seems honest.

8 rejection letters that will inspire you to not give up  

Excerpts from the page:

U2’s Rejection Letter

“Thank you for submitting your tape of ‘U2’…”

U2 were given the generic refusal letter treatment by RSO Records after Bono (Paul Hewson)  mailed the London based label a demo tap in 1979. “We have listened with careful consideration,” the label’s Alexander Sinclair said, and we’ll never known whether that’s actually true. Either way, Mr. Sinclair must be kicking himself now.

Celebrities Who Get It – They Don’t Alienate the Public By Publicly Trashing Other People’s Politics or Religious Views

Celebrities Who Get It – They Don’t Alienate the Public By Publicly Trashing Other People’s Politics or Religious Views

This is an on-going list. Any time I see a famous person who comprehends that it’s really stupid to unnecessarily offend about half the country (and it’s almost always liberal celebrities trashing right wing people or people with conservative religious beliefs) I want to add such examples to this post.

(I may also post examples of celebrities who speak up in disagreement with liberal celebrities and directors on other matters.)

Just to get started:

Mel Brooks (actor, director, comedian):

Chris Pratt (actor)

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

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

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.
