From Brent Bozell:
We Can End Stupid Celebrity Cause Videos
Remember the video made by actors Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher pledging to serve the public and Obama? “I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama,” said rock singer Anthony Kiedis as he kissed his biceps, right and left. It concluded with Moore saying “I pledge to be a servant to our president,” and Kutcher adding, “And to all mankind.” In a crowd, the celebrities chanted, “Because together we can, together we are, together we will be the change that we seek.”
Movie stars with large “carbon footprints” who jet around the world to film festivals ridiculously pledged “to reduce my use of plastic” and “to no longer use the plastic bags at the grocery store.” Actor Jason Bateman pledged to flush his toilet only after a “deuce,” and never a single. No one was going to check that pledge.
Speaking of pledges, Moore’s marriage to Kutcher (her third) crumbled before Obama’s second term.More.
Reality check: But that’s precisely why it plays well with the celebs’ fans. No one really need do anything except posture, lecture others, and tyrannize when the opportunity arises.
Readers will have little idea how many two-car-family progressives lecture little old carless me about the environment and climate change, before stomping off to leave their huge, deep carbon footprints on someone else’s life.
Support celeb and progressivecrat lifestyles if you want; I do my best not to.
