It’s no secret that Hollywood is a bastion for liberal beliefs. During every election, we’re constantly graced with lectures on how we should think by out-of-touch actors and musicians. After all, who better to tell average Americans how to vote than a millionaire who once played one on TV?
Of course, Hollywood’s liberal celebrities are also hypocrites. They get on late-night TV and whine about income inequality, only to return to their lavish mansions. They lecture Americans about limiting their carbon footprint, but travel by private jet. They say the rich need to pay their fair share in taxes, yet use loan out corporations to lower their tax liability. In all, Hollywood suffers from a severe case of “do as I say, not as I do” syndrome.
In the latest case of celebrity hypocrisy, anti-Trump zealot George Clooney is moving his family from the U.K. back to the United States. Despite lecturing us bigots on the virtues of letting in refugees, Clooney no longer feels safe in the terror prone United Kingdom.
From Bizpac Review:
George Clooney, a pro-Islam advocate and proponent of open borders, will reportedly move back to the United States, citing security concerns for his wife and newborn twins in terrorism-ravaged Britain.
Like other Hollywood hypocrites, Clooney, 56, says one thing publicly but does another privately. The anti-Trump actor has repeatedly trashed the president’s calls for sovereign nations to protect their borders and properly vet refugees from known hotbeds of Muslim terrorism.
Having recently had twins, open-borders Europe just doesn’t cut it safety wise:
“He doesn’t feel like Amal and the twins are safe living in the English countryside,” an insider told Life & Style. “He’s determined to move his family to LA, where he feels much more secure.”
As soon as Amal found out she was pregnant, he hired former Secret Service agents to assess all his properties and make recommendations for improvement. His mansion in Studio City [California] was deemed the most secure, and it’s within minutes of an LAPD station. He’s waited so long for this family. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe.
He’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe, like move back to a country with more sensible refugee policies. He’ll keep them safe by living in a mansion with a giant gate, while lecturing Trump supporters on the evils of walls. He’ll keep them safe with armed guards, but advocate for the restriction of gun rights.
Clooney, like every Hollywood liberal, thinks he should be held to a different standard than the rest of us. Thankfully, the rest of us are wise to the act.
