Time To Deflate The SAG Gas-Bags!
Going around Jakarta on public transport, as we non-rich folks do…
… I am often serenaded, along with other passengers, by pengamen, buskers, who board the vehicle alone or with two or three friends, and entertain us with songs or, occasionally, poems.
They are (sometimes!) rather good at entertaining us, and most people give them a few coins in appreciation of their efforts to enliven what might otherwise be a wearisome journey.
One time, a guitarist asked me, as about the only foreigner who uses kopajas, to help him figure out the lyrics of a song!
But no matter how impressive their talents may be, nobody would seriously contemplate seeking their advice on Indonesian politics. If they attempted to impose their personal political or religious views via their performamces, most commuters would be thoroughly teed off.
And for the offending minstrels, it would be a case of ‘rare in our pockets the mark of the mint!’
So it doesn’t happen.
They grasp the fact that their job is entertainment, not peddling propaganda.
Not so the puffed up twerps of the Screen Actors Guild, an organisation which, in his younger days as an actor, the late great Ronald Reagan rescued from CPUSA control.
Times have changed and the Left are back in the SAG saddle, as witness the Anti-Trump hate-fest reported by the BBC.
“We’re in a really tricky time in our country and things are very inexcusable and scary,” said Emma Stone http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-38793960
Silly little flibberty-jibbet as ever there were!
Her scariest daily challenge is choosing which of many expensive baubles to don for the next party.
And other show-biz gabbling ignoramuses too were at their shrillest, mouthing off in defence of undesirable aliens.
If one scares easily, the moronic blow-hard in this video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuOcG0lIVZM – might be a tad worrisome.
That bearded buffoon – no idea of his name – gets rapturous applause from face-lifted hags, demented young harpies and some sexually ambivalent ‘men,’ when he howls of his intention to ‘punch in the face’ those he dislikes.
These ‘celebrities’ need to be slapped down.
Some of them at least are smart enough to know the folly of the left-liberal hogwash they spout, but they carry on, to keep in with the in-crowd.
Others are pure evil, like Michael Moore.
And others, Emma Stone’s sort, are just big kids, immature and prone to showing off, to appal normal people, and to thrill their pinko pals.
Best to boycott their movies till they grow up.
Oh, and start with the boring OScar junk that’s apparently coming up soon.
