ome of Hollywood’s biggest stars spent the weekend begging us to give the House back to the Democrats.
We’re all gonna die if the GOP retains control of Congress, they cried. Or, even worse, Nazism will rise again, turning the Land of the Free into the Home of the Concentration Camp.
Sound like hyperbole? It’s the precise message being sent by some celebrity elite. You might expect
that unhinged rhetoric from Infowars or the farthest left bastions on the web. No, these battle cries came from the biggest names in Hollywood.
Oscar winners. Tony winners. Grammy winners. Emmy winners.
Let’s start with Sally Field. The two-time Oscar winner joined Twitter not too long ago. And, with her birthday approaching (Nov. 6), she used her official account to warn what might happen if the “Blue Wave” doesn’t materialize.
Tuesday is my 72nd birthday. I want one great big gift that can only come from you.
Vote. Like our lives depend on it. Because they do.

Two time Tony winner Bette Midler echoed the “vote or die” mantra in a series of Tweets.
It will be unendurable and probably the end of the Great Republic. https://t.co/FYIPMKlzR6

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, owner of a staggering nine Emmy awards, once kept her political musings to herself.
The actress has been more vocal in recent months. Now, she’s blaming President Donald Trump, one of the most pro-Israeli American leaders in our lifetime, for the Pittsburgh synagogue attack which left 11 people dead last week.
Her new voting video is only warming up, though.
“Donald Trump, you are the president of all citizens of this country, you should not inflame the hatred of some at the violent expense of others,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus begins. “We’ve seen Jews subjected to persecution, prejudice, and mass murder for thousands of years. We were all horrified by the horrific slaughter of 11 Jewish congregants at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.”
The clip then evokes the Holocaust, letting two survivors share their stories as if Trump might bring the same to America’s soil.
Misspelled “whiners”. I’m not surprised those who live behind high walls and have armed security don’t think people should worry about 12,000 illegal immigrants wanting to swamp our border (I live in Texas… without a wall). I don’t think I’ll let Oprah, who demands stores open up JUST FOR HER so she can buy a purse has much to tell me about how people should be treated.
Those silly Hollywood stars! President Trump would never spread fear like this!
@Gary Miller: No, he brings to light concerns about true events, not speculating that millions will die if we don’t get socialism.
Silly Sally and Bean Brain Betty and what do we care about their dumb awards they get these liberal celeberties have already said they would leave America if Trump was elected why dont they just pack up and leave we certianly wont miss them
