Hollywood stars have a strong vein of narcissism.
Their need for attention gets validated through their success, then they feel they have the authority to lecture everyone else about their political opinions.
Actor Tim Robbins is one of the worst offenders of this, and he unleashed an absurd rant against Donald Trump during an awards show speech.
Actors have a long history of self-serving speeches at awards shows. The trend began decades ago, much to the annoyance of the captive audiences, but things have changed.
Hollywood has moved far left, and all left-wing political grandstanding is welcomed with open arms.
If anyone dare say something even remotely conservative, the audience sits on its hands. At this year’s Academy Awards, actor Gary Oldman praised America in his acceptance speech for his performance as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.”
Oldman’s valentine to the country that brought him prosperity fell on deaf ears.
However, attacking the American President will bring the house down among the gathering of champagne socialists.
The latest example came courtesy of Tim Robbins. The far-left actor, who once comprised a socialist power couple with Susan Sarandon, received an award at the European Film Festival and thought it appropriate to attack President Trump.
Robbins unleashed a string of nonsense. He tied in his message to the 1985 classic “Back to the Future” because he auditioned for the antagonist role of Biff Tannen (ultimately played by Thomas F. Wilson).
Robbins began by saying:
“We have not gone back to the future, we have gone back to the 1950s.”
Yes, 2018 is just as repressive as the 1950s. Who can forget all of the p*ssy hats and drag queen reality TV shows and legalized marijuana during the Eisenhower era?
Then Robbins went on a bizarre technophobic rant where he decried the smartphone for delivering us “puppets of propaganda that appeals to our spiritual weakness and our jealousy of others.”
Robbins must be unaware that the left controls media, academia, and Hollywood. For every conservative news source, there are dozen left-wing outlets. Hollywood conservatives have been thoroughly driven underground, and they’ve completely abandoned the universities.
If anyone is spewing widespread propaganda, it’s the left. That’s the reason why all of the media gave Hillary a 90+% chance of winning the election. They ignored the American people.
Also, Robbins’s ideology is completely based on jealousy. Socialism is the philosophy of “you didn’t build that” or “the rich need to pay their fair share.”
Never mind the 1% pay over 40% of all federal tax receipts, and the top quarter of earners pay almost 90% of the taxes. They’re not paying their “fair share.”
Robbins mercifully concluded with:
“Those that have taken us back to the ’50s have already controlled the programming and algorithm that delivered us to the child abuser in the White House and [to] gigantic tax breaks for the wealthy.”
Calling Trump a “child abuser” is absolutely disgusting rhetoric. Robbins and other leftists didn’t seem to care when children were being detained under Barack Obama.
A few weeks ago, a former Obama staffer and other leftist activists circulated photos of illegal alien children in cages to rip President Trump, but they all quickly pulled the harrowing pictures when it came to light they were from 2014.
Finally, Robbins threw in another jab at the wealthy. All Americans received a tax break, but that wasn’t enough. The wealthy needed to be punished.
One must assume Robbins is exempt from the repugnant “wealthy” label; his estimated worth is $60 million. Surely he gladly gave his tax break back to Uncle Sam.
It should also be noted that Robbins ironically gave this speech at an Eastern European film festival.
Eastern Europe, with a long memory of the fascist Iron Curtain, has adopted incredibly strict immigration policies. Countries like Poland and Hungary refuse to take any migrants from Islamic countries.
Robbins must’ve run out of time to rip Eastern Europe in his acceptance speech.
