Hollywood has gone completely insane.
The election of Donald Trump has turned countless celebrities into screeching banshees hellbent on resisting everything he does.
But one Trump policy has truly made Hollywood hysterical.
Hollywood has obviously leaned left for decades.
However, the election of Donald Trump has forced the left—as well as RINOs on the right—to show their true colors.
And many celebrities bleed communist red.
Actors like Jim Carrey, Cynthia Nixon, John Cusack,and others have openly called for socialism, imploring people to embrace the label.
These exposed radicals in the Democratic Party are in favor of any policy that damages the prosperity and safety of America.
Perhaps no politician embodies this more than new Democrat “It” Girl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The freshman congresswoman has been vaulted by the mainstream media despite her glaring lack of knowledge on economics, governance, and American history.
In her latest softball interview, Ocasio-Cortez appeared on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show and pushed a radical open borders agenda.
She even said illegal aliens flowing into the country are more American than border patrol agents.
This is the issue that now animates the left.
Democrats as recently as a few years ago were against illegal immigration—and hawkishly so—but they’ve now taken a 180-degree turn.
Somewhere along the way, Democrats realized they needed to import first-time voters to remain competitive in national elections.
Regardless of the lip service they pay to border security, they want the border to remain porous for the sake of “diversity.”
And Hollywood celebrities are eager to carry water for the left on their illogical border position.
Carrey, and others, has not only attacked Trump and his associates, he called supporters of Trump zombies.
Trump addressed the nation on why a barrier along the southern border is necessary.
First, the left questioned whether or not it should be aired.
Then they preemptively prepared people for the “lies” Trump would tell.
Finally, they mobilized to attack, and an endless wave of celebrities chimed in.
Michael Moore tried and failed to paint Trump as a hypocrite:

This is a common tactic by the left.
They try to conflate legal and illegal immigration.
Trump specifically said he’s not talking about immigrants who come to the United States legally.
America takes in roughly one million legal immigrants per year, which is more than any other country.
It’s unclear how many the left wants America to take.
Is America supposed to take in the entire world’s poor and destabilize the nation in the name of “compassion?”
Actress Mia Farrow piped up with a common leftist canard:
FACT: Immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than native-born Americans.

Again, this confuses legal and illegal immigration.
Ignoring the fact illegal immigrants are committing a crime when they flout America’s immigration laws, federal crime statistics show illegal immigrants are over-represented with regard to several violent felonies.
Also, every murder, vehicular manslaughter, or violent assault committed by an illegal alien is a crime that never should’ve happened.
Also, no leftist critique of Trump would be complete without a lazy Hitler comparison:
Trump was grooming hard tonight. Hitler-Ian rhetoric. Wake up. Fight back or sit down Democrats

Aside from the fact millions of people weren’t risking death to get into Nazi Germany, it’s radical and dangerous to suggest wanting border security is “Hitlerian.”
There’s a reason Trump got a larger percentage of the Hispanic vote than did Mitt Romney.
Their communities are more closely impacted by illegal immigration than the out-of-touch elites in Hollywood who tweet about oppression from their perch in Beverly Hills.
