No Greater Hypocrites than Celebrities

2019 August 8
by bc3b

Remember prior to the 2016 election when a boatload of celebrities vowed to leave the US if Donald Trump was elected?

The list included: Jon Stewart, Chelsea Handler, Neve Campbell, Barry Diller, Lena Dunham, Al Sharpton, Spike Lee, Amber Rose, Samuel L. Jackson, Cher, George Lopez, Barbra Streisand, Whoopie Goldberg, Miley Cyrus, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Amy Schumer to name a few. What do they have in common? None kept his/her word. They’re  all liars, frauds, hypocrites.

It’s a shame because the US could have got rid of some really butt-ugly women.

And, now Roseanna Arquette proves the spirit of celebrity hypocricy is still alive and well.

But Hollywood actress Rosanna Arquette is taking things a step further, saying she would like to change the “disgusting” color of her skin, which happens to be white.

 

I’m sorry I was born white and privileged. It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame.

— Rosanna Arquette (@RoArquette) August 7, 2019

If this washed-up actress is truly disgusted, sorry and ashamed for being white and privileged, wouldn’t she want to do something about it? There are so many causes she could donate her millions to relieve her shame. Arquette could:

  • Share her privilege by donating her millions to the United Negro College Fund, thereby enabling poor blacks to attend college
  • Donate her millions to one or more historically black colleges that are having serious financial problems
  • Use her millions to establish organizations that would provide skills training to uneducated black single mothers so they could make a better life for their families or work with black children who have been the victims of crime
  • Invest her millions to establish a school in the poorest area of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore or St. Louis

But, any of these actions would require a personal sacrifice. It might require moving from her present digs to a middle America type 1,800 square foot house, giving up vacations to the world’s most glamorous destinations, staying at a Holiday Inn rather than a four star hotel and making other personal sacrifices.

That’s about as likely as Barbra Streisand supporting her climate change campaign by reducing her personal carbon footprint to something less than that of Evansville. Or Beto and his billionaire-heiress wife donating as much to charity as the average family with a $70,000 income. It’s not going to happen.

Arquette is virtue-signaling in a desperate effort to restart her stalled career now that her beauty is a thing of the past she is no longer casting coach material. Like the other celebrities, Arquette talks a great game, but don’t expect her to make any personal sacrifices.

    As to the post.

    After I wised up back in my 30’s, the last movie I enjoyed was ‘Bridges of Madison Cty’. Good acting, decent plot, no gimmicks. Most of the junk that Hollyweird produces these days is either a cartoon or a comic offshoot. Layer that with all the remake virtue signalling and most films are just not watchable. And yeah its not a sacrifice to write a $60k check when your net worth is in orders of 10’s of millions or more.

    actually, this link fits into drdog’s post:

    https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/08/a_health_care_system_thats_the_envy_of_the_world.html

    the article fits in because the wealthy Pols & other “Elites” (including “Celebrities”) will NEVER have to actually use the “single-payer” system they are looking to shove down our throats. THEY will all have private doctors and hospitals…though the doctors will be called “medical advisors” (or some such) and the hospitals will be called “wellness centers” (or some such).

    JR –

    Doncha realize the elites are “special?” Do you think Chris Cuomo was admitted to Yale Law School because he was MENSA material or because his father was governor of New York? With Roseanna Arquette and her siblings, their privilege came not from being white but from the connections they enjoyed from their father and grandfather being in Hollywood. The same is true of Chris Wallace, Mika Brzezinski, Joe Buck, Prince Charles and Skateboard Beto. They all enjoy privilege not because of their race but because of the family they were born into.

    That’s the nice thing about sports. Peyton Manning got where he did because of his talent, not the fact that his father was Archie Manning. The opposite was true of Petey Rose, he only lasted a few weeks in the majors because he couldn’t hit, even though his father was one of the best hitters of all time. Petey may have gotten a shot at the majors because of who his father was, but, once he got there, he was on his own.

    JR, 5,

    That is exactly how this will wind up if implemented here. All the doctors will end up as GS-13s govt lackies and won’t care if they see you or not since there are so few doctors available. There are some countries where the govt care model works. The key though is the populace at large possess a certain ethos about shared responsibility — Russia, Scandinavia, etc. But its a disaster for most western cultures brought up on capitalism.

    To show how screwed up our system is…. https://surgerycenterok.com/ If you can pay cash the costs for a particular procedure there is 1/2 to 1/3rd the cost of any other facility using any sort of insurance, private or OCare.

    fight on,

    I know a way we could do it for real and legal. Fund a Planned Parenthood facility right in the town.

    Not something I support but as a concept its doable.

    The Dayton massacre keeps getting weirder:

    Of course the media is concentrating on El Paso.

    Eph –

    I first saw this yesterday but didn’t post it because I didn’t have confidence in the source. The guy he shot with his sister was Betts’ best friend.

    There were rumors that Betts’ sister was with a black man, which is untrue. Betts’ friend is white (as is everyone else in Bellbrook). I lived there for six years. The left has been trying to paint Betts as a racist to push its agenda.

    BC – doing my best to stay in the ‘burbs and far away from the…umm…urban culture. Plotting my escape from IL. My property taxes are approaching $20k/year, and the new commie Gov. is hinting at an exit tax on people who dare to leave this “paradise”.

    JBoz –

    Congratulations!!! Illinois beat out New Jersey last year with the greatest number of outbound moves, according to United Van Lines annual study.

    Things in Illinois certainly have changed since I left (Jim Edgar was governor). By contrast, my property taxes are about $3,900 in a suburb similar to Naperville.

    I haven’t bought (or even seen) a Playboy in 30 years. But, when I did, it was for the naked women. I never read an article. Last week I read that Playboy Circulation dropped from a peak of around 7-million in the early 1970s to about 899k these days.
