When trying to point out just how out of touch those in our ‘entertainment’ industry really are with those of us living in the real world, there is simply no better way to put it than in the way Ricky Gervais did very recently, during his recent stint as host of the Golden Globe Awards. And while what he said in his remarks was spot on, it seems to have had, as expected, very little impact, if any, on those at whom his remarks were directed. But then, we shouldn’t be surprised by that as these entertainers, merely by virtue of them being able to act or sing or whatever, still see themselves as being so much smarter than those of us who can neither act, nor sing.
For instance, it was Mr. ‘Anger Management’ himself, Alec Baldwin, who just this past Monday chose to once again take it upon himself to target supporters of President Trump, this time going so far as to argue that the “desecration of those ideals and the near moral collapse of this country falls squarely in the lap of Trump’s supporters.” Now, personally, that would seem to be rather odd thing to be hear from someone whom we all know to be very comfortable at the far left end of the political spectrum as well as someone who has virtually no problem whatsoever supporting hardcore leftist positions when it comes to everything from abortion to illegal immigration.
It was this past Monday that Baldwin began what was a pretty longwinded, and quite disturbing, social media rant by saying, “American democracy has always been a struggle between the misaligned protections of specific freedoms and a raging, at times intoxicating, 12 cylinder economy. It demanded vigilant/consistent regulation, compassion for the disenfranchised and the periodic display of a necessary sacrifice that allowed for the long term health of our society at the expense of short term whims.” And so it is that once again we have someone lecturing us on a topic that they know virtually nothing about yet feel entitled to lecture us all just the same.
Baldwin said, “The desecration of those ideals and the near moral collapse of this country falls squarely in the lap of Trump’s supporters, as opposed as opposed to Trump himself, who is merely what psychology labels the ‘objective negative function.’ He continued saying, “Like fire, floods and earthquakes, it destroys, and only destroys, by its very nature. Without prejudice.” He said, “It is Trump voters, particularly those who would re-elect him who bear the blame.” And he then went on to say, “For the undeniable and colossal destruction of everything that matters to us as Americans that cannot be merely monetized.” “Monetized?” He’s serious?
Most are likely familiar with Baldwin’s rather long history of lobbing personal attacks at both the president and his supporters. It was just last July that he claimed that “our friends in other countries” now believe that a “mass of Americans are outright racists.” He then followed that up roughly a month later by saying Trump supporters “have swallowed the poison pills of racist hatred, election fraud, a revolving door of semi-competent or outright awful appointees” because money is all they care about. And it was a few months later that Baldwin appealed to the president’s supporters and asked them to “get rid of him,” presumably in the 2020 election.
Baldwin ended 2019 by joining with many other rabidly left-wing Hollyweirdos in encouraging people to take to the streets for protests in support of the House Democrats’ bogus attempt to impeach President Trump. Yup, these are the people who now curiously view themselves as representing the moral compass of our society. Is that not weird? The very same people who so enthusiastically support the murder of children, all manner of perversion and debauchery and the very things that most people in this country find repugnant at best, now claim to be worried about a moral collapse? Perhaps they may want to look in the mirror to see who’s really to blame.
To have someone on the modern left claiming to be concerned over the “near moral collapse” of our society seems more than a bit bizarre. Especially when we have a Democrat Party that: quite literally hates America, is very much in favor of murdering the unborn up to, and in some instances after, the moment of birth, supports allowing illegal immigrants to flood into our country, and who seeks to remove all mention of God from the public square. And yet, according to Baldwin, the blame for the “near moral collapse of our nation” is to be laid directly at the feet of those who actually oppose all of those things instead of where it belongs, at the feet of people like him.
And it’s the very ones who spend the most time lecturing us on the evil of ‘our’ ways that are most responsible for some of the worst living conditions in this the most prosperous nation on the planet. Let’s face it, it’s every time you visit any major city in this country that is under the control of those in the Democrat Party that you always find that there is a very high crime rate, very high unemployment, a high level homelessness, a rampant drug problem, and tons illegal immigrants all taking full advantage of their sanctuary status. And it’s the rest of us who are forced to pay the high taxes required to cover the bill for what we’re told is all our fault.
Chicago is just one of the many examples of a city being run into the ground after decades of Democrat ‘leadership.’ But it is far from the only one. A list of other stellar examples would include such cities as Baltimore, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and any number of others. And I can only assume that those on the left, like Baldwin, must feel that if just given the opportunity most Americans would love nothing more than to live in the same squalid conditions as those who live in most of these very same cities. But when we make it clear that we have no interest in doing so, somehow it’s we, and not those who have ruined our cities, who are chastised.
Baldwin is yet another self-centered, short-tempered, foul-mouthed, privileged jerk who now thinks himself as being somehow qualified to sit in judgement of those who disagree with him. According to him, the quiet, hard-working, church-going, anti-abortion majority of the nation are to be seen as responsible for the moral decline of this country. If it weren’t so pathetic, it would be funny. He ignores completely that it’s the Hollyweird culture that is essentially responsible for the cheapening of human life and the loss of moral compass that has become the default setting for so many. He has absolutely nothing to support his decree, other than his own vapid delusions.
In truth, morality went out the window when we started allowing babies to be killed for no other reason than convenience, allowed bad language and pornography to become normalized and lastly, allowed our supposed leaders to remain in elected office after having sordid affairs with their junior employees and to then lie about it. We, as a people, have been gradually losing our moral compass over time, and it shows in what we are expected to condone. And it is those like Baldwin who are far more than merely a symptom of our popular culture, he and those like him have been prominent players in the overall degradation that has taken place in our society.
