TWO MORE REASONS ACTORS/DIRECTORS SHOULD SHUT UP AND ACT/DIRECT

Here are two quotes from actors/directors who think anyone other than the people in their left-wing bubble and actors looking for work who’ll “agree” with anything they say, gives a damn about their political opinions:

ICE are massively funded, militarized police whose function is to deport people of color. Ethnic cleansing in America. Now they are a massively funded, militarized SECRET police (SS) that don’t have to identify themselves or answer to anyone. What could go wrong? #AbolishICE

Trump is a stone cold racist who is running his campaign as a proud White Supremacist. On Nov.3 we will find out how many racists live in America.

 

Gee, thanks guys.  The world was waiting for those brilliant observations.

Now do us all a favor.  Try to remember that you are famous for your acting and directing.  Not your political opinions.  The fact that, because of your entertainment celebrity, a lot of people will read them does not – repeat, not – mean anyone cares about them.

How about just shut up and go back to acting and directing.  Thanks.

  • Imagine”
    (The not-Hollywood version)

    Imagine all the actors,
    I wonder if you can.
    No Bentley in their driveway,
    No gate around their land.
    (chorus)
    Imagine all the actors.
    Living like we do.
    They may say we’re resentful.
    But we don’t want their stuff.
    Just spare us all your pity.
    We’ve all had quite enough.

    Imagine there’s no movies,
    No streaming or TV.
    No actors patronizing,
    Shedding tears for you and me.
    (chorus)
    Imagine all of Hollywood,
    Struggling like we do.
    They may say we’re ungrateful,
    But those commercials are absurd.
    We hope someday you’ll stop weeping.
    And put actions to your words.

    Imagine nice possessions,
    It’s pretty hard to do.
    A good car in the driveway,
    Food on the table too.
    (chorus)
    Imagine all the actors,
    Living hand to mouth.
    They may say I’m just jealous,
    But I’m not the only one.
    Just live your lavish lifestyle,
    Leave the rest of us alone.

    • Steven, I have been working on this one for a while. I’m not very good at lyrics. it uses the song Fly Like an Eagle. Please fix and complete it for me.

      I don’t want to die like a fetus
      Torn asunder
      Ripped apart
      for convenience and a profit.

      Kill the babies
      livin in their mommas tummies
      Rip their bodies apart
      and sell em for a profit.
      Make the people
      complicit in the act
      Use their tax dollars
      and make us all to blame.
      Kill the babies….

      • Original song lyrics

        Feed the babies
        Who don’t have enough to eat
        Shoe the children
        With no shoes on their feet
        House the people
        Livin’ in the street
        Oh, oh, there’s a solution
        I want to fly like an eagle
        To the sea
        Fly like an eagle
        Let my spirit carry me
        I want to fly like an eagle
        ‘Till I’m free
        Fly through the revolution
        Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
        Into the future
        Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
        Into the future
        Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
        Into the…
