There’s not much to say about Hollywood’s hatred of all things Conservative, except that they’re consistent.
Of course, the hypocrisy is hilarious; when celebrities vowed to leave the U.S. if Donald Trump won the presidency, we all knew not a single one would ACTUALLY leave.
Endlessly spoiled, woefully out-of-touch brats probably shouldn’t be pundits or ambassadors.
But sometimes in the course of an actor’s life, they have to sit and listen to another older actor talk about the “old days.”
Tinsel Town just ain’t what it used to be and the old-timers know what it means when they talk about the days when “men were men.”
This week at the Cannes Film Festival, the audience had the treat of being lectured by none other than the king of “cool cowboys,” Clint Eastwood.
And he had a few choice words for the younger actors.
“While addressing a packed audience Sunday, the Oscar-winner said his seminal crime drama Dirty Harry could not have been made in today’s politically correct climate.
‘A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect,’ Eastwood said of the 1971 film he starred in. ‘That was at the beginning of the era that we’re in now, where everybody thinks everyone’s politically correct.’
‘We’re killing ourselves by doing that,’ the 86-year-old star warned, declaring that ‘we’ve lost our sense of humour.’
Of course, this wasn’t the first time that Eastwood has warned of the dangers of political correctness.

In an interview last August with Esquire, Eastwood said then-candidate Donald Trump’s political success was due in part to his disregard for political correctness.
‘He’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,’ the actor said,
‘That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells.’“
Eastwood added that it’s “a sad time in history” and that essentially, if everyone has become THIS fragile, we’re all in very big trouble.
And on top of which, when you’ve got clueless celebrities like Alyssa Milano saying unbelievably stupid things about ISIS, you just have to wonder if modern-day Hollywood has any brains at ALL.
In general, stop trying to act like you’re all better than the average person who walks the street. Stop trying to act like you know better.
And listen to Clint here.
