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.

Trump v. Clinton: What the popular vote in each state shows
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.
Without California, Trump Would’ve Won 1.4 Million More Popular Votes Than Clinton
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:
Lefty Celeb Joss Whedon Mocks Trump Voters: ‘Uncaring and Obnoxious’
by Scott Whitlock
March 2, 2017
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.”
