People like Barbra Streisand, Beyoncé, and Katie Perry don’t seem to understand they make their money from a population they laugh at in Hillary Clinton’s Fundraisers where she refers to Trump Supporters as “a basket of deplorables.’ Are they really that asinine to believe that, like Jane Fonda, their names won’t be burned in Middle America’s memories – not for their talent but for their disdain towards former fans?
Everyone remembers the Vietnam Vets vilification of Hanoi Jane when Fonda made her ill-fated trip to North Vietnam where the photo ops showed her on top of a VietCong tank and laughing it up with Americans’ enemy during the Vietnam War. This was splattered all over every newspaper and magazine throughout the world.
Ironically, on her return home, she was largely ignored by Hollywood producers for her brazenly atrocious behaviors. In fact, she didn’t get good parts anymore unless her father was involved. Instead, she ended up doing work out videos in the early 80s and it wasn’t until Netflix took a chance on Grace & Frankie that she’s managed to get some notoriety again. All the still, to this day, many Vets refuse to watch her programs and movies based on her actions in July 1972.
Barbra Streisand also made an utter fool of herself in 1998 when she defended Bill Clinton after women surfaced with stories of his sexual predator actions towards them. She even spoke at a rally in Hollywood, standing by Hillary’s man even though he was later impeached for lying to a Federal Grand Jury. After that, we didn’t hear another word from her until her latest chirp about how she’s moving out of America if Donald Trump becomes president.
Oddly, it seems to be lost on her as well as Whoopie, Cher and Rosie that no one is stopping them. Sean Hannity has even offered to pay their tickets – one-way, of course, with the promise they never return to the United States ever!
Hopefully, they’ll take him up on that offer but something tells me, they won’t. However, I’m sure many of the deplorables will remember when Streisand does her next ‘last tour’ with tickets for $1,000.00 a pop! Will she sell out?
Many prominent producers in Hollywood are Republicans… surely they’ll be passing on projects featuring the likes of Matt Damon and George Clooney should they go by way of Hanoi Jane! The fact is, most Republicans know when to keep their personal politics out of their business life – Smart People!
Money talks, BS walks. Perhaps they believe their more intelligent but their lack of basic economic sense demonstrates their ignorance of just how they make their living.
Laugh all they want, I’m sure as I’ve heard from many, former fans are keeping a list of these dissidents and have said, they’ll never patronize them again! This could make them fall out of grace with the Democrats they support because, without the money their fans afford them, they’re just regular Americans like everyone else!
The only difference between us and them is they’ll be has-beens and a basket of ungrateful, self-important entitles whom didn’t seem to understand who really buttered their bread!
