Conservative-minded celebrities and famous personalities who’ve had enough of liberal politicians, corruption in government, and the Obama White House failures are finding their voice and beginning to speak out.
“We are tired of the Hollywood types who yell out and advocate acceptance but are the first to slam the door on anyone who disagrees with them,” observed actor Gary Sinese said recently. “Many who actually voted for him (Obama) are sensing the shame and it is being talked about not just behind the scenes anymore.”
Although blasted by the liberal media after his August 30, 2012 speech at the Republican National Convention, Clint Eastwood stood tall against the naysayers and proved to be right with much of his address to the nation. In millions of people’s eyes he was the first major star to defy the premise that Hollywood would blacklist anyone who spoke out against liberal politics and political correctness.
“There are a lot of conservative people, a lot of moderate people, Republicans, Democrats, in Hollywood,” Eastwood told America. “It is just that the conservative people by the nature of the word itself play closer to the vest. They do not go around hot dogging it.”
“So -- but they are there, believe me, they are there. I just think, in fact, some of them around town, I saw Jon Voigt, a lot of people around. John’s here, an academy award winner. A terrific guy. These people are all like-minded, like all of us,” Eastwood acknowledged.
Eastwood commented on how some celebrities were crying when Barack Obama was first elected.
“Everybody is crying, Oprah was crying. I was even crying. And then finally -- and I haven’t cried that hard since I found out that there is 23 million unemployed people in this country,” the cinema star stated. “Now that is something to cry for because that is a disgrace, a national disgrace, and we haven’t done enough, obviously -- this administration hasn’t done enough to cure that. Whenever interest they have is not strong enough, and I think possibly now it may be time for somebody else to come along and solve the problem.”
Eastwood turned the empty chair symbolizing Obama and spoke: “You’re crazy, you’re absolutely crazy. You’re getting as bad as Biden. Of course we all know Biden is the intellect of the Democratic party. Kind of a grin with a body behind it.”
“See, I never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to the president, anyway,” Eastwood offered. “I think attorneys are so busy -- you know they’re always taught to argue everything, and always weight everything -- weigh both sides. They are always devil’s advocating this and bifurcating this and bifurcating that. You know all that stuff.”
Looking America straight in the eye, Eastwood told America:
“I would just like to say something, ladies and gentlemen. Something that I think is very important. It is that, you, we -- we own this country. We -- we own it. It is not you owning it, and not politicians owning it. Politicians are employees of ours. And -- so -- they are just going to come around and beg for votes every few years. It is the same old deal. But I just think it is important that you realize , that you’re the best in the world. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether you’re libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we got to let them go.”
Singer Bono, from U2 was one of the first singers to tell America how most of the world really thinks about their positive influence internationally.
“Anyways, it's not a right-left issue, it's a right-wrong issue. And America's consistently been on the side of what's right,” Bono said in a Georgetown speech now made famous in the Dinesh D’Souza movie “America.”
“Because when it comes down to it, this about keeping faith with the idea of America. Because America is an idea, isn't it? I mean, Ireland's a great country, but it's not an idea. Great Britain's a great country, but it's not an idea,” Bono continued.
“That's how we see you around the world… as one of the greatest ideas in human history. Right up there with the Renaissance... right up there with crop rotation… The Beatles' White Album,” Bono stated. “That idea, the America idea, it's an idea. The idea is that you and me are created equal…It will ensure that an economic recession need not become an equality recession. The idea that life is not meant to be endured, but enjoyed. The idea that if we have dignity… if we have justice… then leave it to us, we can do the rest.”
“This country was the first to claw its way out of darkness and put that on paper. And God love you for it. Because these aren't just American ideas anymore,” the singer said. “There's no copyright on them. You've brought them into the world. It's a wide world now. I know Americans say they have a bit of the world in them. And you do. The family tree has a lot of branches. But the thing is… the world has a bit of America in it, too. These truths… your truths… they are self-evident in us.”
Actor Vince Vaughn acknowledged that as we get more experience in life and observing news, we “just get less trust in the government running anything. And that you start to realize when you really go back and look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to sort of think and pursue what they have interest in.”
More voters are starting to catch hold of the hypocrisy and agree with people like actress Angie Harmon. She rejects the idea of Hollywood elitist who call her a racist just because she disagrees with Barack Obama.
“Here’s my problem with this,” Harmon said. “I’m just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama, it’s not because I’m a racist. It’s because I don’t like what he’s doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way.”
“Frankly, playing or baiting with the race card is getting old. Fortunately, America is becoming progressively diverse. But the left’s continuing and deliberate attempt against visions of genuine equality condemns our future. It stokes the fire of racial strife, when we should be working together to extinguish it.”
Vaughn was especially concerned about Obama’s kickbacks, where $200 million of extra Medicaid money was split evenly and given to Louisiana and Nebraska as a deal to have their politicians vote favorably for Obamacare.
Why was a medical center in Connecticut given $100 million of our tax payer dollars from Harry Reid’s shenanigans? It’s worth Googling.
$600 million went to Vermont and $500 million to Massachusetts. All these were tied to pork payoffs for Obamacare votes.
“And that when you start drawing the lines, saying, as a society, we think this is inappropriate, we’re going to pass laws to protect them from themselves and or take things away to protect themselves or move money from here to there, that you realize that you wake up with corruption and without the unintended consequences you’ll wake up with a lot of problems that didn’t exist prior,” Vaughn continued.
Before Jay Leno exited The Tonight Show, he ramped up the tone of criticism against Obama. In one monologue, Leno said he had some good news for the president. The IRS ruled he can write off the first half of his second term as a total loss.”
Leno is joined by many comedians who have either switched parties or moved more conservative in their political beliefs. Adam Sandler, Jeff Foxworthy, and Drew Carey have reportedly come out of the Hollywood closet and exposed themselves as conservatives. As one observer said “It’s a shame our president just doesn’t get it, but our entertainers are beginning to.”
The number of celebrities include people of various races, genders and industries. The list of sports figures, television personalities and film stars listed as conservatives is growing. Below are some of these famous figures you may recognize, or who just may surprise you.
