It’s Mourning in America for Hollywood

Just before President Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, a group of entertainers led by married couple Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore did a video in which they “pledged” what they would do to help the new president succeed.
In the video Moore says, “I pledge to be a servant to our President and all mankind”. That is followed by “Together we are the change we seek” voiced by all the actors in unison.
Even Soviet propagandists in their prime could not have come up with a more ridiculous and insipid phrase.
The two actors were divorced in 2013 amid stories of infidelity by Mr. Kutcher. Evidently their marital pledges to each other were less powerful than Ashton and Demi made to their demi-God Obama.
Now that Donald Trump is only a few weeks away from being inaugurated the 45th President of the United States, another group of entertainers-led by “The Flying Nun” Sally Fields- is taking to the video barricades only this time they are not pledging indentured servitude to the new President.
Instead they are demanding that he address issues they are concerned about to hell with those stupid bumpkins in flyover country who put him in office and don’t share their worldview.
But this was only the opening salvo in their campaign to delegitimize the new president and to push forward an agenda that might sell well in coastal California but that was soundly rejected in the rest of America and even in rural California.
The next step in their campaign will begin this Sunday when they will use the Golden Globes and the other upcoming self-congratulatory industry awards shows like the Oscars, Tonys and Grammys to verbally assault the new President with bad jokes by unfunny people and political acceptance speeches talent challenged actors.
That’s right they will continue to ridicule the very people they need to buy the tickets to their concerts and movies that allow them to afford kale cleanses, nannies and triple double decaf lattes.
You’d think they would have learned something from the recent election where their version of a politically correct America was soundly defeated.
Traditional America has awakened and it is now resisting the liberal’s version of America as the European Union where power is controlled by a distant capital where one size fits all solutions are dictated from unaccountable bureaucrats.
And just as the EU from its capital in Brussels has usurped the power of the nation states that are its members, so too does the American left want to usurp the powers of all 50 states by edicts from Washington.
Until the left realizes that Americans are not Europeans they will continue to misread their countrymen.
And when liberal politicians finally wise up, they should realize that people do not cast their votes based upon the musings of morons from the world of entertainment.
So here is your Cowboy Wisdom for the Week.
“If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of influence, try orderin’ someone else’s dog around”.
Entertainers need to understand just because someone buys a ticket to their movies or downloads their music doesn’t mean they want to hear their political thoughts.
Nor does it mean they are people of influence as we learned from the election where their endorsements were useless.
And they should stop orderin’ folks around by labeling those who disagree with them as bigots.
Just like dogs, no one is going to take orders from strangers especially ones who abuse them.
And they just might bite
