What is it about Hollywood's Actors and Actresses? I mean, is there some deep hole that was dug on the lots of studios where the ultra-liberals of the industry fall into and clunk their heads so hard that they are left permanently brain damaged or something? Man o' man - at least it sure seems that way given the inordinate amount of actors and actresses who come up with their stupid-ass diatribes on most any subject they know nothing about. Maybe they should get a grip on their sensibilities and finally admit that they live their lives consumed by the very same fantasy roles they play. I suppose between the gazillion scripts they read and the various incarnations they become on the silver screen that I seriously doubt that they even know who in the hell they really are after a while.
Speaking of one such person, it seems to me that Susan Sarandon is just another one of those Hollywood hole victims. What could she possibly have been thinking of when she blurted out her insensitive comments about Pope Benedict XVI being a NAZI over the weekend? The truth of the matter is that the Pope, who was born Joseph Ratzinger, was born at a time where every youngster in the Third Reich was forced into membership of the Hitler Youth. Did she think there was a choice back then? Too bad Sarandon cannot comprehend what sort of world that was back then. Then again maybe she didn't didn't do very well in school before moving on to her many alter-egos.
And for all those who haven't heard the words of the Pope before, he long ago acknowledged his required membership in the Hitler Youth. But Pope Benedict XVI also said that his family renounced Hitler's beliefs and that he even deserted the country's armed forces (to which he was conscripted) during World War II. What more does the world want from him on that subject?
But you know something? Susan Sarandon's remarks should be an affront to any German who has ever had to endure being called a NAZI just because they came from Germany. And I was one of those kids who was callously called a NAZI by some of our Jewish neighbors children (and their misinformed parents) while growing up in 1960's Albany Park. However, unlike the pacifist nature of the Pope, I didn't sit idly by to that sort of bullying or let it persist. Instead, I proceeded to kick the ever-loving shit out of that kid and any other stupid one that followed. And as some sort of a constant reminder, I even have a lifelong scar just beneath my eye from the first misinformed bully who came at me with a kitchen knife in his hands.
So, I tell you what, I find what Susan Sarandon said to be particularly insensitive and hateful as well as a form of bullying! And to think that in this day and age that that sort of thing still exists. Sadly it is even on the rise! I guess it just goes to show you what people like her really think of humankind. Just chalk it up to being another hypocritical celebrity. I guess there should be any surprises then why we can't have a civil discourse in our nation's politics. Then again, Susan Sarandon has been known for her Ultra Liberal political views over the years and hasn't always been on target anyhow.
Normally dissenting opinion doesn't bother me in the least and actually believe it to be necessary. However, the Ultra Liberals and the Ultra-Conservatives of this country have left something to be desired when it comes to civility. They are all out of whack if you ask me - but I suppose it is what it is. However, when it comes to BULLYING, then all bets are off!
As for what I think of Susan Sarandon? Well it really is too bad. Not only have I liked her body of work but I even respected her liberal political views when they were rationally thought out. However, her insensitivity has diminished any credibility she may have had with me. As for her body of work, well I know one thing any DVD in my collection that features Susan Sarandon will be out with this week's trash and never again will I buy a film with her in it. She can just go Fu$k Off!
And so far as any other loudmouthed Hollywood hole victim who may get their kicks distorting the truth - just do yourselves a favor and get some serious professional help before you run into something that will derail your careers and or that much needed ego stroking. Perhaps it might even be best for the studios to fill in that studio lot hole or instruct the Hollywood uninformed to just shut their gobs altogether and leave the history out of their repertoires.
Unless of course they actually lived it?
