The hatred for Donald Trump in the entertainment world and mainstream media is spreading like an uncontrolled disease all based on mass hysteria and misinformation without any fact based on things the media purposely takes out of proportion and magnifies all because they lost an election. I’ve never seen such hate for one person based on false and misleading information. People believe these lies verbatim without checking anything out. I guess they don’t want to see companies come back here and offer jobs. I guess they don’t want to see our economy grow and bounce back from disaster. I guess they don’t want to see lower taxes. They just want the government to take care of them and give them handouts.
Many celebs are refusing to perform for the Inauguration. The Trump team asked the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to perform so one woman in the choir said she agonized for days and had sleepless nights deciding whether they should sing or not (Give me a break). Sleepless nights over that ? She decided that in all honesty she couldn’t saying “I wouldn’t throw flowers at Hitler.” She’s only one member out of over 100 so if she doesn’t perform they won’t miss her.
Now the famed New York Rockettes are getting into the act .One dancer said she wouldn’t perform for such a hateful person and at a private meeting that one member recorded MSG executive chairman James Dolan told the Rockettes they were expected to tolerate intolerance during a meeting about the dance group’s performance at Donald Trump’s inauguration. According to the publication, Marie Claire one of the dancers said to Dolan, “I mean, it just sounds like you’re asking us to be tolerant of intolerance.”
The advice to tolerate intolerance came after Dolan complained, “I find it a little ironic–I get all of these emails, too, from people saying, ‘Don’t perform for this hateful person.’ And then they proceed to spew out this diatribe of hate.”
When an unidentified staff member chimed in to point out their friends in the theater community “really suffered this past election cycle from this hate,” Doland reportedly asked, “How can they be your friends if they’re not tolerant of a different opinion?”
Marie Claire reporter Kaitlin Menza wrote in her story that “Dolan’s statements reveal a management philosophy that fails to factor in the dancers’ own concerns, despite the fact that they are the face and body of the brand.”
This is a great national event,” Dolan said in the meeting. “Every four years we put in a new president. It’s a huge moment in the country’s history. It usually signifies a whole change in how the government is going to run. The fact that we get to participate in it…we are an American brand, and I think it’s very appropriate that the Rockettes dance in the inaugural and 4th of July and our country’s great historical moments.” Rockettes told to ‘tolerate intolerance’ in secretly recorded meeting with man
Meanwhile while performers are boycotting Trump’s Inaugural they have no problem performing for murderous dictators in their own country.
Beyoncé, who has performed live for both President Obama and Hillary Clinton, has also performed for the family of Libya’s murderous dictator, the late-Muammar el-Qaddafi? For a fat seven-figure paycheck on New Year’s Eve 2009, Bey belted out her hits for the Qaddafis at a lavish, champagne-soaked party. Also in attendance, her husband Jay-Z, hip-hop kingpin Russell Simmons, Usher, and Jon Bon Jovi.The previous New Years Eve, Mariah Carey was paid $1 million to sing four songs for Qaddafi’s son. In 2007, Rap superstar Nicki Minaj grabbed $2 million to perform for Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos, a noted dictator and abuser of human rights? Jennifer Lopez has reportedly earned some $10 million selling her soul to “dictators and crooks.”
This says as much about Hollywood and our political media as it does these performers.
Believe it or not, it actually works like this…If you perform for murderers and gangsters, your Hollywood career is in no jeopardy whatsoever. But if you jump off the Leftwing Plantation to perform for America’s next duly-elected president, you will face the silent blacklist, the one where people quietly back away from you, stop calling you, and no longer consider you for various jobs.
On top of that, there will also be the unrelenting public attacks. Sing the “Star Spangled Banner” for Trump and you are an automatic Other — an instant pariah. Immediately, many in the national media will join your show-biz colleagues to condemn you as a non-person, a sell-out, a Nazi, or worse.
No less than CNN published this warning just last week:
Celebrities shouldn’t lend their fame to normalize or validate Trump’s history of racism, bigotry and sexism. And by being a part of his inauguration they would be doing just that.
They would be saying it’s OK Trump demonized Latinos, Muslims and immigrants. They would be telling us they are cool with his sexist remarks and mocking of a disabled reporter. And that they are not disgusted by Trump bragging in the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape about his sexually assaulting women and then publicly shaming the victims of his alleged sexual misconduct who had the courage to come forward.
Translation: That’s a nice career you got there, be a shame if anything happened to it. http://www.dailywire.com/news/12068/hollywood-values-leftist-celebs-perform-murderous-john-nolte
These misguided celebs are being brainwashed by the hateful left wing media. They call Trump racist, sexist, xenophobic and any other name you can think of. Why do they call him sexist just because he made some lewd remarks about women 11 years ago that are typical of how guys talk? First of all the women that came forth and accused him of sexual misconduct all were proven false and later recanted their stories. If Hillary won I’m sure they would have no problem with Bill being there again who raped several women and abused numerous others and Hilary who got a rapist of a 12 year old girl off and laughed about it later on. No they have no problem with that and the fact that she went o Epstein’s pedophile Island 5 times and Bill went there 25 times. That’s OK with them.
They call Trump a racist and xenophobe. Why? Because he wants to build a wall to protect us all which I think is personally overdue, but better late than never. He never demonized all Hispanics. He said, “ Mexico is not sending their best. They are sending rapists and murderers and some are good people.” Which is all true. Many are rapists and murderers and 45%o our prison population are rapists and murderers from Mexico. Obama let in tens of thousands of illegals from countries that want to destroy us and kill us and no one is being checked, but Trump is the xenophobe. I wonder if the ones at CNN who wrote that letter would feel different if a son or daughter of theirs was raped or murdered by an illegal like the parents of the children killed by illegals that Trump brought out at the republican convention.
They call Trump racist because of his call for a temporary ban on Muslims. HE DID NOT DEMONIZE MUSLIMS!!!Jimmy Carter did it for four years with the Iran hostage crisis but it was OK then, but not with Trump after six or seven attacks by Muslims on our own soil and thousands killed.
I don’t know why Trump’s team goes after these leftist performers like Elton John or Katy Perry and expect them to accept .They are leftists for sure so why ask them in the first place.
I’m sure there are plenty of performers who would gladly perform such as Lee Greenwood or Ted Nugent. I’ve seen them both perform at Sean Hannity’s Freedom Concerts and they are fantastic. As the title of Laura Ingraham’s book says “Just Shut up and Sing.”
