I have of course modified the headline from that found on CBS, which was this –
There’s a list of these ‘celebrities’ – I thought the word meant famous people but apart from Sheen, most of them are people I’ve never heard of before – nor wish to again!
…Debra Messing, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Noah Wyle, Freda Payne, Bob Odenkirk, J. Smith Cameron, Michael Urie, Moby, Mike Farrell, Loretta Swit, Richard Schiff, Christine Lahti, Steven Pasquale, Dominic Fumusa, Emily Tyra, and Talia Balsam.
He starred in a novel by Herman Melville, right?
No, not the same fishy character, it seems, but since wikipedia tells us he has also been known as Voodoo Child, Barracuda, Lopez, DJ Cake, Brainstorm, Mindstorm AND UHF, I guess I may be forgiven for any confusion.
I vaguely recall her from 1970, when she had a hit, Band of Gold, not bad, but does that make her a celebrity? Much the same can be said for another past-it actress, from a long-discontinued series, Loretta Swit.
Michael Urie?-another actor who has referred to himself as “a member of the LGBT community.”
As for B D Wong – I assumed he might be related to the notorious Australian lesbian socialist Penny Wong, after learning that B D donates his time and resources to a number of LGBT and arts-related charities,
But apparently not.
Who cares, anyway?
Like, who do these people think they are?
Worth listening to?
Their politically and/or sexually partisan prejudices against Trump carry no more weight than those of any poor old bums gibbering in a Big Apple alley.
It’s reminiscent of some other ‘famous’ clowns a month or so ago, a UK story whose headline I also must parody, viz.-
Wow! 300 Shop Assistants Sign Xenophobia Petition?
And why should they not, if they feel strongly about something?
But would they have gotten headlines in the rotten media, a sample of which we append below?
300 Academics Sign Open Letter To PM Over Xenophobia
These ‘intellectuals’ are probably among the least useful people in the British Isles…ivory tower elitists, tucked up in cosy college common rooms, or doing ‘jobs’ like ‘story-teller,’ or ‘arts project manager,’ or ‘ spoken word artist/artistic programmer,’ with comfortable life-styles.
Such people may be ‘qualified’ to lecture on a variety of superficial subjects like ‘sociology’ – but not to lecture Theresa May, calling on her to “rein in” her government’s divisive and “xenophobic” language…
Their opinions on serious national issues – or non-issues, like ‘xenophobia’ – are no more worthy of media attention than the opinions of shop assistants, or car-wash workers, or waitresses or street-sweepers.
Less worthy, in fact, because those latter groups perform services beneficial to society.
Yet the left-lib media splashed this petition from over-paid whiners as if their whines are of interest or significance to normal people!
It’s all the more offensive when the whiners include jerks known for their collaboration with agitprop outfits serving an anti-democratic agenda, like this…
Red Baroness Kennedy–
Another one mentioned is some foreign hack nonentity in Scotland, once shortlisted for Guardian International Development Journalist…
That must have been a distressing time, only getting on the short-list. Was it distressing on a par with his current woes, expressed in his tirade against the ( belated and somewhat wishy-washy) UK government recognition that there’s a duty to put British people first in Britain.
“The last thing a society needs is this sort of dehumanising language dividing people into ‘foreign’ or ‘non-foreign,’
Is he all a-fret because he fears his cushy berth is in danger?
Grow up, Mr. Grimnasty!
Of course any UK Government worth its salt should bedividing people into ‘foreign’ or ‘non-foreign’ – and giving priority in jobs and housing to non-foreign, i.e. BRITISH citizens!
Does this cry-baby from Eire expect Theresa May to apologise?
But on he witters.
It is quite xenophobic and can leave some people feeling more emboldened, that ‘maybe it’s OK to say that someone doesn’t belong here.’ http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/300-academics-sign-open-letter-to-pm-over-xenophobia-1-4253617
Damn right it’s OK to say that someone doesn’t belong here!’
Not only this blog but plenty of other media have recorded more than enough examples of creatures who don’t belong in Britain.
CURS LIKE LEARCO CHINDAMO don’t belong in Britain!
Chindamo – Garbage
Learco Chindamo was, is, not only a brutal murderer but a liar as well, who for years claimed that he was the victim of mistaken identity, but later said, ”I did a terrible thing when I killed Mr Lawrence…”
He was jailed indefinitely but some gutless clowns on a parole board let him out in 2010. That piece of garbage is walking London’s streets even as I type this, despite the fact that he most definitely doesn’t belong here!’
Would the Southern Irish hack signatory to that petition regard it as xenophobic to make that assertion?
